Except for F16_Neo´s excellent IL2FB maps, we have created recon photos for the Valhalla server and the differnt mission dates.

These images are useful for planning your attacks or to use as reference. Even if you dont play on our server they will perhaps be useful to you.

Use your favourite image editor to add own text or symbols.

Note that only overview photographs of citites are going to be created at this first stage.

When we feel that the missions have been bugfixed and optimized we will create more detailed target recon photographs aswell!!

Keep looking during the following week, more citites are added as time progresses...

You can find these photos in the media section of the homepage.

At this stage it is not recommended to print the large images, unless you want to split the files yourself.

Of all the things that I hear about the merits of playing full difficulty. But not being able to see ground targets, and not having recce pics, not being able to lean to see . . . etc. so on, and so on . . . takes all the fun out of playing with hard settings. A recon shot of a target area would really help. Great idea!

Now, if we could talk the mission building guys into adding some of these, for us offliners, I might be able to turn those icons off forever! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

As I mentioned above, there will be detailed recon in future photos.

As an example of this overview image,
the code 032,033,034 are images of the marked area with better detail.

However, the detailed shots are useless unless you play on our server ofcourse!!

ya know,

i had thought of this very same thing almost 2 years ago. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif at the time it was very hard to find out a smooth way to implemement this feature into a server, with what resources we had, and how limited IL-2/FB was.

my idea was to get a map/mission making team to have equal, but different styles of objectives. send out "THE MISSION" files with recon photos, detailing all perinant info. on each team were certain drawbacks..like if you had to bomb an area, there was a prison camp nearby with a hidden car target. if car target in "prison camp" was destroyed because you misplaced your bombs, mission was lost do to friendly fire. etc, etc. each team knew NOTHING of what the other side was doing, so you had to keep on your toes..

mission/recon creators had to be honest, and not be told as to which to virtual squads were going against each other..lest there be favoritism.

glad somebody else is doing almost the same thing, and that it could be pulled of the ground better these days with what we al have available in this sim/server http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
