The old desert maps are almost all very scaled, with largely exaggerated terrain features. Otherwise they would all look like Alam Halfa, but even more flat.

The Kidney problem actually made me delve a bit deeper into this.

According to wikipedia, "...was Tel el Aqqaqir, the base of the Axis defence roughly 3 mi (4.8 km) northwest of the Kidney feature and situated on the Rahman lateral track." and "Kidney feature (also known to the Germans and Italians as Hill 28), often wrongly called a ridge".

So if, we look at this map and compare it with Google maps, we get this:


Since the Kidney ridge is apparently more of a hill rather than a ridge, finding it is pretty much impossible in Google satellite view, and I'm guessing the Egyptians don't have any publicly available topographic maps of the area.

Cool Seelow pics 8) I never knew how close the FH1 version was. There was talk about modeling the actual old train station that was located there. It wasn't very high priority afaik

We couldn't locate the exact train station to base the modeling on.

Unfortunately, we ended up using a generic one. :)

Yes, the map is based on the actual area, but a bit scaled down (not that you would notice normally).

By the way, who does the FH2 railways? I mean the stations, the trains and the other stuff. Like a train geek I can say they look pretty damn good. I would also like to see some carriages on Operation Totalize or other maps. Then my choo-choo journey across the map will be awesome. :D

Plaese note, that FH2 is actually a WW2 themed church simulator. Trains are only there as a coincidence  ;D
