]This map includes a collection of my previous maps, along with new airports and locations created specifically for this map. It is large and load times are long.
This map was started over two years ago, although the regions in the map were created over the last several years. This map, like many of my other maps, probably will not work with DirectX for some reason. You will need the new release of my ground objects pack.
1. Wikipedia claims Area 51 is now called Homey Airport.
2.There are not a huge number of start positions in this map because I wanted it to be relatively simple to find where you want to start.[/moddesc]

Thanks for all the hard work Patrick, can't wait to try it out. Someone should try running it on their server.

Just fooling Pat.Glad to see this project got to see the light of day.I will be logging many hours on it.Maybe if you dont mind I will experiment with adding some of my scenerys like Kodiak and WV and see if the lag dosent kill it.

This is the best map for VAs

Here's a good map for the new GLVA by Red Eagle cause this map has the Great Lakes, excellent map-hub for the VA and i agree with Pincap2012.

Sorry, guys. I'll be releasing an important update in a few days. Bug fixes include repairing the shore around Fort Morgan, Alabama, and putting the Syracuse start position where it belongs. It will add some start positions, place reloading stations or fuel tanks at every airport with a start position, and clean up the shoreline around Louisiana. I also added the Rio Grande so you know when you are going too far south.
This was a big map and there is a lot of stuff with which to keep up, but I should have had all that done before release. I will post again when I make the change. Consider the current version a preview.

Nice work. Was going to download it today. Now going to wait for the update.

Quite stunning, and perfect both for VA use or for any of us who want a mega red-flag exercise...
actually that gives me an idea.
BTW: va guys the charts for the US of A can be found at skyvector.com its a great site, and is simple to use.

The update is live. It works now......
Update later the same day: I just made a very minor update. By minor I mean that Fort Campbell Army Air Field is now somewhat close to how it really should be. I don't know why I didn't make it more realistic before.

Unfortunately a common problem associated with very large scale maps.

Mine too. Lags as hell, only 10 fps.
Posted: Wed Dec 28, 2011 5:47 pm
10 fps? That's better than I get.
Posted: Wed Dec 28, 2011 6:02 pm
odd, this map kicks my laptop's ass, but FSX is running 20FPS with some cranked up graphics...
Posted: Wed Dec 28, 2011 6:07 pm
From what I understand, YSF simply wasn't designed for maps this large.
Posted: Wed Dec 28, 2011 6:20 pm
Yeah, I think it's the render method as well.
Posted: Wed Dec 28, 2011 7:50 pm
I got it to run at a steady 20FPS on lowest graphics settings. Then I tried to kill the statue.
