As a terrain builder for other flight sim, I'd love to put my fingers on the RoF and it's landscape capabilities. The map would be pretty exotic for most of you, because it covers Eastern Front from the post-ww1 conflict between Soviet Russia and Poland.
The map depicts the situation from the late Fall 1919 to July 1920 where the massive Soviet offensive was launched.
The front was located on the Berezina river with cities of Borisov and Bobruysk.
Spring 1920. The Red Army gets the advantage over the White forces inside of the country and starts concentrating huge amounts of soldiers behind the frontline to begin big offensive against Poland. The goal is to get to the Warsaw and beat the oponent. The Poles know a bit about those activities and are prepaparing own offensive on Kijev in Ukraine by themselves.
Polish recon squadrons: 12 and 14 Eskadra Wywiadowcza started to recon the positions. Because of that, the Soviets bring there their best air units including the 4th Avia Gruppa which arrives in the area in the middle of April. Their task is to secure the area and not to allow Polish planes to cross the frontline and take photos. About 30 planes are concentrated in one area. The first combats start taking place…
Polish HQ has one fighter squadron - the 13.Eskadra Mysliwska, newly equipped with Albatros D.III (Oeffag) which secures the 12.EW. The 14.EW flies alone until the 1st of May, when newly formed 19.Eskadra Mysliwska equipped with SPAD 7 arrives on the front…

Me and my teammates already did pretty similar thing for the RedBaron3D and Targetware sim engine. While on the RB3D we used community made planes and maps, the targetware mod was done from scratch including map, planes (some taken from Richthofen's Skies ww1 mod because we were cooperating very closely), ground objects, scenarios…
We will be looking for any help, especially from the RoF community members from Russia and Belarus because of the need of some historical buildings and primary sources.
Through the last five years I have collected few books in Russian about that conflict and Red Army aviation as well as probably all books in Polish, including some memoirs. So, it will be possible to recreate few historical missions for the both sides.
