    Hi Guys

    Just to let you know I'm nearly finished with the Master Map for this campaign. This is for everybody that loves Lowengrin's Dynamic Campaign Generator (Lowengrin.com: News)

    I was going to wait for the final release of the channel map, but dang, my patience is only that long, and I don’t want to ask the developer(Canon_uk) as these guys work so hard at AAA and people do get banned when they start to get annoying.

    I hope for this to be out for downloads at the end of May(Let's be realistic :) )

    It will be historically correct as possible, but you dcg fans know that you can alter the course of history with dcg!

    I'll keep you guys posted on the progress!!

    I did some testing on the map last night, and think I've got way to much stationary objects. Could only get about 28-30fps. I'll do some more editing today.

    I'm not to bothered with eyecandy, as you cant see the pretty little tractor next to the runway, when you trying to break up 40 HE111's! :)

    Yeah for sure! Like I said, I just could not wait for the final release of the map anymore :)

    Come to think of it, after the final release of the map, I can just copy/paste the info onto a new notepad file and there you go!!

    Luckily I also have some help form Scharnhorst, especially with the *.rds files

    But I'll keep you posted

    I will include them, but just as an "offmap" base, as I'm only using the canon_uk map. It will be as historically as possible, but it is DCG, so the outcome will not always be historical :)

    Cant wait to get into my '88 and blow some radar stations to pieces :twisted: :twisted:

    i rather go for the stuka myself for that, i just love the howling sound it makes when divebombing.
    the major difficulty i have is the actually diving in possition and drop the bombs on target lol

    Ok, I have done:

    1 Airfields
    2 Harbours
    3 London
    4 Radar Stations
    5 Flak Positions

    I'm posting the master here. View attachment BoB Master.rar

    Please use in quick mission and let me know how your frame rates are. I think I might have a little too much flak, but please test and let me know.

    Also...If there is anything you guys think that should be added/removed, please post it, as I want this DCG campaign to be a huge success

    It is basically the master template that will be used by DCG. There are no flights as yet on it. Just zip to your single missions folder, etc. Missions/Single/GB.

    Then open in FMB, add a few flights and just fly over map. All I want to find out is how differently people systems get affected by all the objects on the map. I'm just a bit scared there are to many objects, and I'm trying to cater for lower end machines as well.
