What exactly is the difference between a regular map and an online map? For example, what's the difference between Slovakia and Slovakia Online?

If I am not mistaken the Slovakia online is a dogfight map.. it is a little smaller.. and I think it has fewer objects on it.. the regular Slovakia map can be used online as well..

Most of the maps marked dogfight are designed to be lightweight in terms of memory use and thus have lower object counts and fewer details on the map (although the geography is usually the same). Some of the dogfight maps have the same detail but in a smaller space and the rest of the map is left undetailed. Some of the dogfight maps are also smaller versions of the normal map.

Conversely, some maps are not suitable for online play such as Gulf of Finland...unless the numbers in the server are low, the server is beefy, and everyone joining has a fast computer.

Ok, all of that makes sense. Thanks.
