Yep that's what really attracted me to this mod... That and the fact that it's the best freaking WWII shooter ever made... (that's still doesn't mean your work is finished devs!  ;))

In the same way that the argument goes, there is little reason for fake maps when enough excitement can be gotten from real battle maps, I say, there is no reason for maps that have little bearing on the battles they represent, when arguably, the top ten most enjoyed maps (Maybe more), are ALL real to life. I think this should be a standard set by devs to slowly phase out the I-don't-know-how-on-earth-this-place-can-exist-on-this-planet-but-the-name-says-its-called-operation-AorB of the mod altogether.

FH1 got rid of its fatty edges, I think this could also be the case... say after map number 48, start redoing some of the wince-maps.

Very nice pictures Hans Werer. They kinda remind me of the photos and the comparison of ingame shoots in the first Brothers in Arms Games (RtH30 and EiB). This accuracy was also a fact, why I loved BiA so much. In FH2 I have never thougth about this accuracy of the battlefields in general, but your photos are very impressive. Good job and please show your Falais and PeB pictures soon as possible, as I can't wait to see it. ;)

Wow, cool!

Someone who is good at making clips should make a YouTube vid out of comparison shots, call it "FH2 cool and realistic BF2mod" and put it up on the channel!

This video shows fighting in villgae of Ouistreham from the movie The Longest Day, although the film location for Ouistreham was actually at Port-en-Bessin...  you can see some similar places there ;)

I knew someone had done something similar for Lebisey and, thanks to google, I found the post.

I had made this post a few month ago on the 79th forum when 2.2 was out, today i found it and i thought that would be useful here.

Well as i live near Lebisey , i wanted to compare a little the map from FH2 with the real situation of Lebisey today. I put a screenshot taken in FH2 with the other one taken on Google maps.
First the minimap:

FH2: Maps:

Minimap pictures.

FH2: Maps:


Pictures and screenshots.

1-

2-

3-

4-

5-

6-

7-

8-

9-

10-

11-

12-

13-

14-

And a historical map (you can see it on the loading screen). The north is on the bottom.


So, this was just to compare the reality and the virtual, this is no easy to made something lost 65 years in the past.
Today, expect for the city, the rest didn't change. The wood was at the same place and the fields was here.
The little problems i have found is the descent you can see on the picture 1. The church, there is no church at Lebisey.  And the houses >:(...but this is my problem  ;D

Excellent comparison! Thank you for taking the time to show us how realistic FH2 actually is. :D
