    Mariana Islands Map

    ***New Map Revealed***


  2. #2
    **From Today's News Letter**


    Since the release of DCS World, the sole free map has been the Caucasus Map. Although a great map and the recipient of a huge update in DCS World 2.5, we are happy to announce a second, free map for DCS World! For this new map, we want to use our latest map technologies and provide a very different combat environment in a new part of the world. The map must have the following features:

    • A very large ocean area with a few islands. Ideal for carrier operations.
    • Islands that are situated such that airfields have natural red, blue, and contested locations.
    • Home to at least one modern-day USAF base.
    • Feasible for US, Russia, and China operations in the Pacific.
    • Take advantage of the Chinese Assets Pack.

    Taken as a whole, there is only one natural choice: the Mariana Islands. It will initially be a 400 x 400 km map with the option to expand further in the future. Home to one of the largest USAF air bases in the region, Andersen AFB on Guam serves as an anchor of US forces in the Pacific region, but it is within reach of both Chinese and Russian Pacific forces to the north. The same island chain also served as the backdrop of the World War II battles of Guam, Saipan, and Rota, as well as the carrier vs. carrier Mariana Islands battle.

    ***Initial Release will include***
    • Andersen AFB.
    • Weapons storage bunkers northwest of Andersen AFB.
    • Ordnance Annex in south-central next to Santa Rita.
    • Antenna array installation on the west coast.

    This map looks incredible. Very good news that it's going to be free too.
    "Try to stay in the middle of the air. Do not go near the edges of it. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there".

    " Rota Island, also known as the Friendly Island is 19km in length and has a population of
    3,500 people. It is the southernmost island of the United States Commonwealth of the
    Northern Marianas Islands. It has been modelled in extraordinary detail and is close to completion.

    We continue to work on the organised, unincorporated territory of the United States in
    Micronesia; Guam. This island was captured by the Japanese in 1941 and occupied for
    almost 3 years. The American forces recaptured the island on the 21st of July, 1944;
    Liberation Day commemorates this victory. Special attention is being given to the
    Andersen Air Force Base located approximately 4km northeast of Yigo. Andersen AFB
    is one of two critical air bases in the Asia Pacific region. Guam’s almost unrestricted
    airspace and it’s close proximity to the Farallon de Medinilla Island, a naval bombing
    range 250km north, make it an ideal training environment. Andersen AFB is home to
    36th Wing (PACAF), 734th Air Mobility Support Squadron (Air Mobility Command) and
    Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron Twenty-Five (HSC-25).

    We continue to improve the cross balance of colour and gamma between terrain textures
    (vegetation and ground), trees and other objects (infrastructure). The water’s fluidity, colour
    and transparency have also been tuned for more realistic characteristics.
