This has probably been asked a gazillion times by now, but I can´t seem to find the answer.
Nobody reads the help forum, so I´ll try here:

Where are the new maps in AEP?
Is there any way to get them available in "Quick missions", or are they hidden somewhere in the campaign?

Please give me a hint.

Cheers.

Hello DawgFace,

Some time ago I thought the same, but then I was never been able to fly my OWN missions. So I started with it and it is really a piece of cake! JUST START WITH IT and within a couple of days you will make dozens of them (the easy ones). Besides this wonderfull forum helps you out anytime you need them. Good luck!

Its actually the easiest mission creation tools I've ever used. It has a sharp learning curve followed by a very mellow and nice plateau where you've already learned all the stuff you needed to know in that initial curve. The sharp learning curve is seriously abotu an hour long...an hour and a good tutorial and you'll be making missions!

Not for me. Its the most powerful but its like programming in machine language you can do everything with it but it takes forever to learn the tricks.

Like terminating a waypoint sequence with a normalfly waypoint makes AI planes circle through that point and if the fighters have ammo they will attack enemy planes within engage range and ground attack planes will attack any ground vehicle that drives near that final waypoint. Its these bizzaro undocumented AI Features that give you alot of power.

They are not available in QMB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

You can do one of 5 things to fly them:

1) Buy Battle over Europe from Starshoy & Co. It will add the Western Europe maps to the campaign system under USA & LW careers. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

2) Download Lowengrin's DCG utility here;

3) Download Uberdemons mission generator here;

4) Build your own missions as others have suggested. It is a lot of fun, but you loose the element of surprise... You already know what is going to happen if you write the mission yourself. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

5) Download other peoples' missions & careers here http://www.netwings.org/library/Forgotten_Battles/Missions/

I hope that helps & happy flying!

Buy BOE.

Why the never changed the QMB to fit in the new maps and sides in AEP is a little short sighted maybe?

Not everyone has the time to use the FMB and when time is shor the QMB is a godsend.

Will Uberdemon work with AEP and BOE?

Also are the maps different between AEP and BOE?

The maps are the same. Starshoy made the maps & gave them back to Oleg in return for being able to use the map making utility . They released them in the 1.1 patch but Starshoy really made them to work with his DGen program in BoE.

I agree, definately buy it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Actully I believe Luthier makes the maps, and Starshoy makes the campaigns.

Regarding the maps in QMB, they require a large amount of work, and are apparently not particularly easy; Uberdemon has said he attempted to make the templates for Oleg for the Finnish map, but as they were not included in AEP there must have been some sort of problem.
