    I am SO happy about the female crew options. And the new map is brilliant! Not at all too small, either – it’ll take FOREVER to get across it in a PO-2…

    Ooh, that’s nice, I’m really curious about this new campaign!
    As soon as I don’t risk metling down my PC, that is (and me in the process) 😉
