There's six maps that I like well enough to make QMB maps for, so I thought I'd leave it up to all of you. Which map should I work on next?

I'll run this poll for 7 days (January 14th), and work on whichever one gets the most votes. In case of spectacularly apathetic response, I'd choose Italy Online.

Cheers!

Yup, I'd go for the Italy map too, just for its looks, and the fact that you can fly a lot of different aircraft on it without being too ahistorical.

Of the choices offered I'd agree with Andy, visualy interesting and fits various scenarios well, for example the Spanish Civil War. Limone already has an interesting harbour/railyard setup that just needs populating to provide some exellent targets. Cagliari has another interesting harbour and adjacent airfield, its island setting might favour convoy attacks. Or if you fancy constructing an airfield from scratch Olibia could be a good site.

Pleased your adding more maps to QMB, they realy enhance the game.

Wingco.

-HF-Aardvark892,

Voted for Manchuria: an interesting map for a nice project after you've finished Italy online Wink

Seriously, thanks for your efforts to add maps in the QMB!

Kind regards,
Ikarushin

Ahh, against the grain I am, I voted for New Guinea. Some of the terrain on that map is amazing, and not nearly enough of it is used IMHO for existing campaigns.

Good response from everyone here, good to see, there will be a guide to making these missions coming along which will give everyone the opportunity to have a go.

I voted for Italy map and was surprised it was in pole position. Still thanks Aardvark! Very Happy

Do you think that it is possible to assign ship as target to have torpedoing mission?

Regards.

Yes. The target is not assigned by the template name so you can use whatever you want for a target. It's just easier for the player to follow if you use the template name for the target. If you use the armor template and they end up attacking ships it's going to confuse the player but it will work. That's why I would like to see more Targets added to the list or a way for us to add them.

Wheels's wish list:

I already wish they had a “Strike,” “Train,” and “Ship” option for the Target. I would think with all the other modifications it wouldn’t be very hard to add them to the Target list.

Strike –Soft targets like vehicles and artillery
Train – Trains
Ship – Ships

That or a way that we can alter the Target list to show a new Target feature. Similar to what they have already done with the maps feature allowing us to add new maps.

By a HUGE landslide, Italy Online was chosen to be the next map I create a QMB pack for.

I'll start tonight, and with lessons learned from my Online4Summer set, I should have a good pack ready within about two days.

For all of you that cared enough to vote/post, Thank You!

FYI, I'm awaiting permission from a community member to use his fantastic Italy Online map templates. I'm garbage at creating realistic airfields. If I don't get a response from him soon, I'll start working on my own.

Italy would have been my second choice so no sad sallys here, lol. Am tired of QMBs on the MTO map anyhow, and could ya throw a couple ships in just for targets, Med isn't the same with no anti-ship. The two tankers puttin around the PacIsland QMB is whats kept that at #1 for my QMB fun.

Your doing a bang up job, so any map you chose will be good.

Quick question though, is there a limit or reason why certain sides always seem to have their landing base in an opposite possition then they would historically on a certain map? See MT map with Axis landing at Malta.
