Ignore him... there are European mapos.. byut unlike the MS series you cant fly from say London to Switzewrland.. there is an Ardennes map, a Normandy map, I nice italy map uin the new patch... and some other stuff... all in all more than enough to keep you busy.

Hi hasforht.

This is one way of exploring the maps.

Select Full mission builder from the main menu.

Menu: (top left of screen) select File/ Load map: select map of your choice.

Menu: Edit/Conditions: set time, weather

Menu: View/Object/Type/Home Base
Locate an airbase symbol on the map, hold down left 'Ctrl' key and left click on the airbase symbol. This will place your home base on the map.

Select either blue or red properties for the home base. On the 'aircraft' tab: click on 'Add all'.

Menu: file/save as/net/dogfight

pick a folder, name the file, and save it. Remember where it is.

Close the mission builder.
Select 'multiplayer' from the main menu.

Create new server/create/mission type = choose folder/file name

Set difficulty and load.

You can now fly anything on your map.

The dgen collection you refer to includes files for an excellent add-on called 'Ostfront', which features european campaigns.


Look for Ostfront under 'Products'. If you google you will find a supplier appropriate to whatever part of the world you're in.

The files in your link are not maps, but relate to various bits and pieces that have been updated to the latest game version by various people.

Not essential, but useful.
