I’m so glad Seth found time to make this. Looks great and a slower rate of fire means it handles differently as well.

Also, the gun in the foreground looks like a beretta. The background.... MP41? Beretta 38/42? Don’t know.

A Kawanishi H8K Type 2 Nishiki Daitei (Large Flying Boat) on Yellow Beach near King's Wharf is examined by men of the US Army's 165th Infantry Regiment, 27th Infantry Division. The seaplane, which landed during the raid, was disabled with a Boys anti-tank rifle by USMC Sergeants Howard E. “Buck” Stidham and Walter Carroll and others during the Marine Raiders attack on Makin on August 17-18, 1942. An air base on Makin was completed and ready to accommodate H8K reconnaissance and A6M2-N fighter seaplanes by July 1943. After a sustained bombing in September 1943, the surviving seaplanes were evacuated, leaving 100 of their ground crew behind. After the invasion on November 20, 1943, no major counterattacks were undertaken by the Japanese during the first night of the battle, nor was there any organized withdrawal eastward. Some successful attempts were made to bolster defenses along the eastern line and a few positions at the base of King's Wharf were reoccupied and new machine gun emplacements constructed facing the American lines. One machine gun was placed in the wrecked seaplane lying in the lagoon off of King's Wharf, another at the base of King's Wharf, and three more were set up in buildings in the area immediately southward. Snipers killed three men at the tank park. As they fired upon incoming landing craft, M3 Grant medium tanks returned fire with 75mm guns, silencing the machine gun in the wrecked H8K. The wreck of the H8K was still intact on Butaritari until 1980. It later collapsed into the lagoon but the wreck is still visible.

Also wearing Vz32 Czech helmets. They seem to be using an MG34 Panzerlauf? but I can’t tell.

This gamemode is really fun in beta sessions. I’m glad the devs are trying to capture every aspect of the war, no matter how trivial. You can make almost anything fun with a little creativity 8)

Hi,

I don't  know if this was already discussed, but should Gazala and Villiers have a 32 and 16 layer? Also, how 762 works in deciding which layers is going to be played?
For example, today we were literally 4 players and VIlliers bocage (64 layer) started. It didn't even run the 32 one. Would be nice to have them if that doesn't suppose much work. Several times those situations kill completely the server.

I agree. Villers has a 32 layer but no 16. Gazala has a 16 but no 32 off the top of my head.

Afaik, 762 works such that;

Server #1

code for automatic choice of the right mapsize:
0-25 players on the server at the end of the preceding round: 16p
25-60 players on the server at the end of the preceding round: 32p
60+ players on the server at the end of the preceding round: 64p
(works only if the map offers the needed size).

Server #2

code for automatic choice of the right mapsize:
0-25 players on the server at the end of the preceding round: 16p
25-50 players on the server at the end of the preceding round: 32p
50+ players on the server at the end of the preceding round: 64p
(works only if the map offers the needed size).

it will default to 64 if the map doesn't have the correct layer I think.

I agree that we need more 16 and 32 layers for these situations. Lots of the mappers are working on new maps atm, so they don't have much time. Tho every once in a while TS or someone will make smaller layers. Hopefully, in-time we can get all of the maps with the correct layers.

Nice photo Seth. What is the 'drum' looking thing under the gun? Is that part of the AA mount or something in the background?

Always down for more Italian love. I wonder if that model is any good tho. And didn’t we have someone in the community try and make one a long time ago?
