Well It was time for me to finally do a full re-download of the game. But during the download, I notice something was out of place. Notice the flag locations on the minimap? I don't remember that in game at all. Upcoming map changes or they're just using it as an example?

Very old map design iirc.

Alpha phase called, they want their screenshot back.

Things to note: direction line is solid white, and the flag circles are static white, there is also no vision cone.

It looks like a very old version of the minimap.

WG gave me the ability to ignore signatures. Adblock gave me the ability to ignore avatars.

 

Oh my, what a helpful comment. Thank you so much for contributing so much to this discussion. Your opinion was so helpful and needed, I dont what we'd do without it! :)

 

 

NOT

 

 

I just have one question when I see this map....

 

What the fudge-balls is that CV doing so close to the front line!? Its like he has a death wish! :ohmy:

OMG!! that was a map in alpha! :3

 

wish they would bring it back.

 

 

I think that I may have seen that map in some youtuber's intro sequence.

 

Regardless, I wish they'd put it in the rotation, even if they move the caps and spawns, etc.  This game needs all the maps it can get at this point.  And a less than perfect map is better than no map at all.

Well, 0.5.1.0 is juuuuust around the corner.

Maybe Convoy makes a return with a bunch of old maps!

The game has text data for two dozen maps but iirc most of them were cancelled or delayed because of balancing issues.

It'd be nice to have some of the old maps back.

Maybe even have that TXXX space event back.

Bright side? Where I am going there's just the Aurora Borealis. I'm already primed and ready to copy and paste the northern lights map as my dock.

I use GetPrivate for VPN(virtual private network). It make uploading much easier for me since it use a other network while still using your network. Confusing, ya I know lol. But I get faster upload speed with GP. but that just me.

 

and it 100% free if case you wondering

Even without that mechanism carriers are the only class with limited ammo.

There is a mod from Aslain that gives this mini-map view, I think. At least, you get direction lines, visual cone, and a couple extra circles (detection and aircraft detection ranges, I think.)

It'd only be an issue if you're stupid with your planes. If you manage them decent enough and dont put them in areas where they'd die quickly, you'd only have to send them back maybe once or twice a match to re-fuel. Of course that would also mean TB and DB would auto-re-fuel when they go back to re-arm, so you'd almost never have to worry about them, unless you try and use them to spot DDs or something and leave them out for a long time. And thats just asking for trouble anyway.

 

It'd be a great way to keep fighters from constantly spotting DDs though and hovering around them. I know a lot of DD captains would be happy with that. :hiding:

It's an older version of New Dawn. I'm not sure if the caps actually existed in those positions in Alpha or not. It was actually late CBT when they changed the NW and SE corners to what they are now.

 

Also of note seems to be shallows in F7, presumably an area that is only passable for DDs.
