this is the best 2.world war sim i have ever played. dont get me wrong, been playing for almost 2 years now, only about 3 months online though, http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

but the thing i miss is a huge map so that you have to fly for a long time to reach your target. and use drop tanks and your long range in the p-51 and zero. b17 flying fortress 2 style http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
you never have to use drop tanks now because you can cross big parts of germany or russia in 10m or less.

but i guess we couldnt have such amazing ground graphics if this was the case.

Think of how angry you will be after flying for 2 hours only to get shot down without firing a shot.

it adds realism, online you dont bother to fly for 1 hour anyway, but offline in the campaign it would have been a cool thing, you can always skip time to 8x (or maybe install a 16x http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) and put autopilot on if you dont want to fly for so long.

when i fly with the stuka in the offline campaign the squadron is ordered to form up at 4000m but you have arrived at the target when you are 2000m, you dont have time to form up because you cross the entire map in 15 minutes.

in the offline campaing you can finish a mission in a matter of minutes flying a fighter without touching the *time* key.

So give us larger maps, so we can compress time?

haha! no.
didnt you read what I said? if you DONT want to fly for so long for some reason. so all can play on bigger maps, even if they dont want to fly for 30 min or more to a target, its not so fun to play offline bomber campaigns now because of the small size on the maps.

imagine flying the he-111 for 45 min to a target and then you get damaged at the target area and have to limp home again, the trill of watching the fuel and oil pressure instruments hoping you dont have a leak or something and hoping you will make it home, beacuse if you dont you have played 45min or so for nothing,
that was what i loved about b17 flying fortress II, flight modeling and so on was not so impressive in that game though.
