Best YSFlight Maps

Post by Eric » Mon Sep 09, 2013 4:50 am

Hello again,

For YSFHQ's YSFlight Scenery page, we need to fill our placeholders: http://ysfhq.com/ysflight/scenery/

To do this, I'm asking all of you to give recommendations for high-quality maps that we can put on this page. Hopefully we can include a couple of the classic stock maps such as the HAWAII map.

There's 18 slots on the map page. Map suggestions anyone?

Any of the Hawaii's (Griffon/PMNV/171st). They're pretty fun maps.

@ MR that might be a bit confusing to the newbie.Since the stock Hawaii would be overwritten by them with out proper instructions to avoid it.Just a thought.

St. Maarten and Hong Kong by Taiwan.
Edward's Airforce Base base by TF58.
Vuelo Beach and Yemen AFB by VNAF.
Helgoland by Waspe.
Porlamar and all the Raceway maps (3 in particular) by mh3w.
Vietnam by Major, and the many other maps he has released.
York Valley, if you want to include Japanese websites.
If you don't care about lag, Griffon's Hawaii and Saipan (I believe?) by Vandal + Iceman (I believe again?).


I'll edit this post if I remember any more. Doing this mostly from memory.

British Indian Ocean Territory was quite fun to fly from what I remember, though I'm not sure who made it. Infact, if anyone know's where I can find that, PM me.

I mentioned this before, but the page has been updated already: http://ysfhq.com/ysflight/scenery/
Can some of you write descriptions for the maps? Otherwise the new players won't have that additional information.

Thanks for choosing 3 of my maps Eric!
I can PM you some short introductions if you like.

Btw, York Valley and Raceway are for sure two of the the top maps out there imho.
I love to see animations in ground objects and both of them have lots of it. (come to think of it, DNM functions for ground objects might be a good topic for scenery development forum...)

I like the Red Planet too btw. Have tried many times to make an alien planet, but never quite succeeded like m3 did.

I absolutely love TF's Coldlake map. It seems that 50% of my replays are done there.
