I started playing COD again and was amazed- overwhelmed, at all the maps that have been made from what looks like scratch for that game.
Ever in the future to allow such devel for us?

maybe in a couple of years, after the developers hand the sim to third party developers

It's understandable that the game makers don't want modders making maps of completely new theaters as this could make a game series like SoW (which by being a series creates a steady income for further development of the game) impossible.

But great would be if additional maps could be done by modders for already exisitng and released theaters.

In a couple of years noone will talk about il2 any more. Then we will have SoW series with all those custom makeable map features spoken about above.

I've heard that the Il-2 map-making program is very awkward to use and it would require a very dedicated team to build good maps with it.

OMG I would love a PTO map of New Guinea that includes what we have (and a little west of Wewak) plus New Britain (Rabaul) and New Ireland.
I would have welcomed this large map over half of the maps we where given in Pacific Fighters.

its a shame that we cant edit existing maps, that is, change, add or delete place names, etc

it would also be wonderful to be able to drag airfields/airports all over existing maps, auto-levelling terrian where it goes

that alone would virtually increase the maps for us

Much confusion over the name still

Battle of Britain is the first installement in the Storm of War series. The sim will be released as "Storm of War:Battle of Briain", and will be explanded, similarly to the way this sim was (but with more logial thought I should hope)

The series of sims is "Storm of War". Episode One, so to speak, is the Batle of Britain

That does not mean thet nothing before the Bttle of BRitian will be done
