Dear Oleg,

Why not make the map tool for creating new maps available for everyone?

Creating new planes and/or FM never should be available for anyone but tools for creating new maps, I don't see a reason for not making it available for the public.

I guess you got very good reasons but perhaps after the latest patch released for FB it could be an option?

The thing is the map tool is connected with a number of sensitive and highly secretive components of the game engine. Its also a proprietary technology and it doesn't seem like they are willing to part with that for a while to come yet.

Thats why they won't be handing out the map editor. This has indeed been asked before with that kind of response. The only people using the editor system are licensed and essentially trained by 1C: Maddox.

There is some discussion of this in the Simhq.com "Battle over Europe" interview.
