I was bored and needed a little project these past few days.... so I took on the in-flight map. I used RAF_Louvert's insanely accurate and detailed Flight maps as my guide.

Peronally, I like to write detailed Kill records and always felt the original and Nibbo's maps just didn't have enough detail to them. I know it's a matter of opinion though, you might think the remake is too busy.

Anyone want to try it out? Let me know yay or nay? Let me know what you think... like it.. .hate it... etc. If it's good, it'll go out to all to use as they wish.

Original map design credit to Nibbo and I will mention that in a readme once I finalize it to a JSGME file.. uh... however that gets done... LOL.

So PM with your email addy and I'll send you the file to add to your main OBDSoftware\WOFF\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields folder.

Well, Mr. Black Baron of Boistrancourt, that sounds like a wonderful idea. My life has been insanely busy, a ton of extra hours on a big job at work and a new grandson at the end of September. It's been so much so that I can't remember what my buttons on my joystick should do, but I'm always hopeful I can get back in the virtual air soon. And when I get there, I need all the help I can get - I still marvel at how these guys did what they did! Thanks to you on Thanksgiving!

BTW... I'm sorry I forgot to mention.. this is Nibbo's original map that I reworked. I always like how detailed he made his map however, as he pointed out, there were inaccuracies in it. Well, I corrected all (or all that I could find) and added a whole slew of new town and villages to it.

Pm sent. I'd like to have a look.

My little one is very little indeed, being 3 months old now.
My pc has been turned on only about a dozen times since then.
But I have already been negotiating flying time with SWMBO in anticipation of the upcoming DiD

OK fellas! Thanks. I'm good with the amount of people that replied. I hope to have it out to everyone this weekend, or early next week.

Thanks for jumping in for a test for those that replied quick. I'll see about getting it wrapped into a JSGME package so it's easy to install once the feedback looks good.

best!

Be waiting anxiously for this one.
A more detailed map has always been a desire of mine.

It would be great if modify Nibbo’s map, you also change the planes color, now same green as the wood, so it will be visible when flying above the dense woods.

You can already change it easily with the help of Multimod - check this thread. . he latest version is 1.9.1.
Just chage the color of Formation, that is used also for displaying of player plane on the map.

I like it. Nice to have the additional names.
I'd say its a keeper.

Thanks for doing this.

Sorry fellas. I have the JSGME file builder loaded, I've just been super busy this week with my wife and Christmas stuff. I hope to put it together tonight and submit the file for approval and upload.
