I had some time today to put together a version of my WOFF Flanders map for early 1918, and since it has been mentioned on numerous occasions how nice it would be if all the troop/gun positions, obs balloons, and factories were included ... well ... they are. Try this one out all you WOFF navigators and if you find it to your liking I will work at doing a Flanders map for each of the other time periods.

You can right-click on the image and open it up full size in a new window if your browser is being difficult.




Happy Navigating!

Lou

Lou, you surpassed yourself again! Great looking job!

Will you try to fly the "DiD Campaign Revival"?
I don't know how much work it is, but maybe you could provide the Verdun map
and the Flanders map for June/July 1916 with these details?

Awesome work, Lou. WOFF's cartographer sans pareil.


Oh that I was back in the dear old PBI.
With no more Triplanes on me tail, nor tracer tracing by.
And no more flames and clickerty-clack and no more blooming sky,
And only a couple of feet to fall whenever I want to die.

Thanks for all the kudos Gents, much appreciated. I hope the new chart serves you well.

Olham, I am planning on flying the DID Campaign and yes I could work at a latter half of 1916 map for each of those regions, provided you're not in a big rush for them.


Later folks, on the road 'til Friday eve.

Cheers!

Lou

I wonder if your maps could be used to replace the inflight map?

I asked that before Olham and Lou explained that it was not possible. I can't remember the Why of it now.

I wish it were possible too! What an improvement that would be to the sim.

Probably the resolution and size of the file. I've messed around with changing it in the past and to get the resolution wanted, the size of the file is exponentially more than the standard map.
