Well, look on the bright side!

The most referred to Land marks are all there (in MP!)

1 Hawkinge (where sitting ducks can be found)

2. Mansgate (where more Allied sitting ducks can be found)

3. Limp-pony (an American bestowed descriptor) where additional Allied Sitting ducks can be had.

4 The French Point and The English Point.

5. Calais Marque (for Axis Sitting ducks).

6. and finally, Phoney Island! Axtually it's a GFX glitch but has become an essential landmark for non UK players in aiding their navigation!"

Don't recall ever flying over London in MP so never noticed missing landmarks...

Think I may have to model it one day
Also, British Stately homes are missing from the game, there is usually one near each village. (Here is a typical example of one found within the map area)

And I know some of you guys are treating this as a bit of a joke, But I just wonder how they managed to put a church in almost every town and village, but managed to not include the two most famous Cathedrals in England (St. Paul's, Canterbury, Canterbury Cathedral is certainly the most famous building in Kent, the Battle of Britain County) London looks good anyway, but Canterbury just looks like a bunch of buildings put together.

And by the way, how the heck do I edit my signature?

Agreed, but you have to admit St. Paul's missing is a big blunder. Like forgetting the Eiffel Tower in Paris but modelling the Madeliene.

Seems a bit much to expect them to include a public toilet...

Select UserCP at the top of this page.

Select 'Edit my signature' down the left hand side under 'Settings and Options'

Here's what mine looks like in there.....

the [url] is the address of our Squad website except I put a space between the l and the ] so you could see it in this post. (Don't put a space in.)
The [SIGPIC] is what gets added when you upload a graphic for your sig.

Get grip Jack. There are far more important game aspects to be improved/fixed than worrying about a missing Canterbury Cathedral.

For you maybe...but the immersion given by the feeling you are geographically there is no less important, and has no bearing on the resolution of what you consider glaring issues (and they may be, I have no doubt).
We just need the SDK to begin correcting or completing the map (and I believe a dedicated team with the agreement of MG will need to do it and this will take a lot of time, but the potential for success is important).

Then everyone will understand that the German airfields were verrry different from their representation in the game (like 75% smaller sometimes), and that trees do not grow on docks, but cranes do...among other things!

I do not think the map was really completed the way it was envisioned...it was just begun, and no time was left to finish it, for various reasons (the guy(s) in charge gone, sick, fired, who knows...)...On the French side, I would state the completion status at 10%, no more, without including the mistakes to be corrected .

I anticipate a lot of fun doing this (I hope I could be part of that team...)!

I agree with you there. When the SDK's are released the community will be able to improve & develop the game, leaving the dev's to work on improving the game core & expansions.
