I voted yes; but in reality I wouldn't pay unless the CD had applicable campaigns/missions for the maps.

BoE with no Spitfire campaigns? Which Europe would that be?

Also what would be nice is the ability in FMB to change the labels of place names on the maps. An example of this would be for the Extreme_One RAF campaign. Being able to change "Gulf of Finland" to "English Channel" and add "Isle of Wight" for example would be great.

I like the idea's of the maps there. I'd personally like a map of the South coast of the UK, mainly Sussex! I know BoB is on the way but till then it would be nice to fly a Spit of Hurri over where I live and where great aerial battles once took place.

I think for the pacific, India and Burma we'll get maps with PF (I'd be disappointed if we didn't).

I'd pay but I'd expect some new planes as well unless we got a seriously large amount of maps and missions/campaigns.

I voted no, oleg should release the map creation program to the public without having to pay thousands for the liscense.

The community members should build the meshes for free, many of us are experienced in fs2004 cfs1 2 3 mesh creation. And can learn olegs map creation tool with ease.

Let oleg decide what guidelines poly limits belong in the game and have the final word what goes into the game. That way we can finally add some maps with limited runway spawns for 262s. 1-3spawns for a me262 base so everyone doesnt select the jet in scripted dogfight servers.

With small square maps, we need alot more maps to keep the sim interesting

FOR WHOM VOTED NO:

everybody is free to vote ...

Nevertheless, reading the comments it appears that a tremendous need is expressed out there OLEG, and indeed, that is the market's voice !! The voice of your customers, the only ones you should listen to:

PAY FOR IT OR NOT THEY WANT MAPS , MAPS, MAPS

As far as I'm concerned I say: yes for an add-on...Let me know where I have to send the check !!!!!

For me it depends on what the 'bang for buck' would be... factors include level of detail, historical accuracy, number of maps included in the set, what the exact coverage of the maps was...

For example, I'm not going to pay 25 for a map of North Africa alone - the whole Mediterranean and North African TOE on the other hand I would probably pay that much for.

There would have to be some pretty damn good maps in there, but yes I'd pay if that were the case.

Of course I would. Even though we have a lot already, I think the one thing IL2 lacks is more maps...

I would also I like to see some new designs of airfields if this were to become reality. I think we need some where the runways cross over eachother like they did in RL.

I would pay even more if they gave us blank maps with placeable pieces of tarmacs, taxiways and runways so we could design our own airfields.

WOULD YOU SHUT UP ABOUT THESE "Would you pay for..." things!

Nothing against you personally, but you're giving Oleg and the Dev. team ideas which I don't have the money for.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

More maps would be nice but I most likely wouldn't be very interested in more maps. More campaigns and most of all more AIRPLANES I would pay lots and lots for. I want more planes. Did I mention I want more airplanes I was just making sure. I would pay for the privelage as well.

I agree with Boosher... While a map only add-on or patch is highly desirable, and 1c is quite generous with the patches and add-ons as a rule... whats with the 'pay any price' deal?

Many of us would like to have more maps and many of us might be willing to pay something for a large sized map or number of maps but why suggest a hefty price tag?...sheesh.

Its a good idea and I would be interested depending on the quality and amount of maps versus the price. I do wonder though if there is enough time left to produce and release the maps before the pool of viable customers moves on to Pacific Fighters and then to BOB.

Would a third party be creating maps and 1C approving them?

I'd pay for a MAPS ONLY add-on ... Much of the comments express by others are valid, the only one I disagree with is quoted above.

Just give us some more places to fly what we got. Please.

This sim does not need any more planes. It's got more planes than an individual can fly in with any kind of a career.

Agreed Snuffy. I've had IL-2 since the original came out and I'm damn sure there are some a/c that I haven't flown yet. I know for sure there are plenty I've only had a quick spin in.
I would love more maps, and I would like even more to have a map editor where everything on the map can be modified.
The mission builders have been the poor relations whenever a patch or upgrade has been released. This would go a long way to putting things right.

Cheers!

I would love a map for the Spanish Civil War included.

Eventually, although we have many applicable aircraft already, there would be additional planes required.

I *might* be willing to pay, provided it was relatively inexpensive (~$20 or less) and provided 1) campaigns using the new maps, 2) adds new maps to the QMB, and 3) adds additional multiplayer maps.

Definitely would like more maps to build/play.

Of course anything new would be welcomed, but my preference is new gaming options (unlikely I know), then new gaming elements (i.e., maps, ships, vehicles, etc), then lastly new airplanes.

The problem with a separate paid addon with regards to maps is the obvious "wedge" between those with them and those without. This would only lead to folks acquiring the maps via friends, squadmates, etc... For those who purchased the maps they will certainly feel cheated.

I really liked the suggestion that let gamers create their own maps, and especially about spawn points.

By the way, can we determine how many spawn points are at a particular base in FMB? As mentioned, it would be great in limiting the number of certain planes permitted for each team.

Since I mostly fly onlinewars this would be a really usefull add-on. However, lots of the scenery objects and stuff get made by third parties AFAIK, and lots of the maps have even quite a big mistakes so maybe as lead wrote not only a maps package but also means to mod them by yourself.

Another add-on I'd like to see is simple load-out package - I don' care too much for add-on aircraft anymore, more detailed and larger ordnance options for most common aircraft types would make a huge difference. Batmobils and other exotic toys serve only DF servers and even on lots of those they are simply banned. Otherwise no offline campaign no use in onlinewars. Maps and ordnance would benefit both of the latter scenes...

Yes, I'd definatley pay for more maps! Although I do like the idea of a Map Builder, I'd be relying on others to build maps and make them available for download. I'm still struggling with the FMB.

Im suprised the hurricane has no ordinances yet, and the addition of the the hurricane mk5 which russia used as lend lease. I have photos if anyone needs proof. Im not sure if the cockpit was any different, but the exterior mdl just had an extended airscoop under the engine. 6-8 poly change.

ordinances it carried 6 rockets, 250 and 500 lb bomb along with anti tank gunpods.

For the p47 i would like to see the ordinances corrected
2 wing mounted 1000lb bomb
Center rack could only carry 500lb fueltank or 500lb bomb.

the p51b and c also used the rockettubes the p47 carries in the european theater.

Well, well... different people, different advices. Interesting...

Personnally, I think that new maps are more than needed, because I do not know if all simmers actually using FB will have the necessary money to update their computers when BoB will come out... the ones who do not have the money for that will certainly be happy to have new maps !!!

And on a commercial point of view, it is a good deal for everyone :

-Oleg's team who develop the game and will increase its rentability,
-Ubi selling this eventual add-on,
-gamers who do bot have the money (it will cost much more than an eventual add-on...) to upgrade their PC when BoB will come out, but who will easily have the 20 or 30 $ for this add-on...

That is why I personnally am convinced that there will be only good sides in such an add-on !!!
