Note that the map Falaise Pocket plays in St Lambert though. That was even the beta name of that map. Don't know why it was changed to a more generic one.

Yup Falaise is St Lambert sur Dive, i have already did all pictures for it and for Port en Bessin, i will post them soon.
I still need to do (go in Normandy to do the picture) Goodwood and Point du Hoc.

Other maps aren't enought accurate to do picutres or it's no longer possible :

Anctoville : Don't know, need to go in Anctoville village to see if the map is accurate.
Viller Bocage : Not accurate at all, only village flag names are good.
Ramelle : LoL 100% accurate for SPR
Lebisey : No longer possible, now Lebisey is a district of Caen city. All this aera have totally changed.
St. Lo. Breakthrough : Don't know, need to go in this aera to see if the map is accurate.
Operation Cobra : Hate this map 0% accurate ;(
Operation Luttich : Not accurate at all, only village flag names are good.
Operation Totalize : Not accurate at all, it's a BF2 Armored Furry vanilla map.
Battle of Brest : Don't know, need to go in Brest city to see if the map is accurate.


For the all other maps well someone live in Belgium or North Afrika ???  ;D

Anctoville: Someone mentioned once that this is somewhat accurate. Looking at Google earth it seems to be similar.

St. Lo Breakthrough: This is an accurate representation of a certain point, you can look at it in Google earth, but there are no real landmarks. The roads exist.

Battle of Brest: Kettcar based this on aerial photographs and black and white pics, but I think the city was too destroyed. It will probably look totally different.

Wow! I never realized how accurate some of the maps actually are! :o

I agree, the devs did a great job on these maps. I can understand why some aren't though, some would be too big or difficult to recreate. But I still like everything on this mod!

I know Pont du Hoc was a 1:1 recreation of the actual PdH.  Also, Mersa Matruh and Bardia are very very exacting IIRC.

Siege of Giarabub, Fall of Tobruk and Mersa Matruh are also supposedly accurate to what they used to look like.  But I don't expect you feel like a trip to Libya and Egypt at the moment.

Also, I think Bardia and El Al have reasonably accurate terrain features.

Bardia really? that map always seemed very vanilla to me (plays very well) maybe because of the abundance of those BF2 bunkers... cool to know its semi-accurate
