See, this is why each FH2 map takes years to build! :P

Brilliant work!

... I don't want to even imagine how many hours of struggling with the BF2 editor it took to get this thing to look so real!

that's legendary how a relatively small team of developers could do all this which also added to the countless hours,days,weeks on modding

Unless Hans Werner goes on holiday again, no... that being said, I think all accurate Normandy maps have been covered by him and I doubt he will travel to North Africa to make pics (not that there would be much to see). We have a bunch of pictures from our tour in the Ardennes, but these won't be released as they show the faces of several devs and testers.

Indeed all historical accurate maps has been done for Normandy (the ones left are just fictional in term of terrain so there is nothing to compare), and sadly I haven't yet in my plan to go in Egypt, Lybia or Tunisia :/ But I have took many pics of many famous Normandy battlefield so maybe if these maps came out one day in FH2 I will be able to do new comparaison  ;D

BTW I'm pasting here also the ones made for Omaha to keep all comparaison in the same thread :

Hello Everyone!

I go often in Normandy because I live not very far from there and I love thoses places of memory.

Last time my friend and I went to Port en Bessin, and we were looking for similarities between FH2's version and reality.

And I got to say, a very good job has been done, but there are eventually some differences and kind of historical mistakes or ommisses because of BF2 engine or 3Ds creations...

Let's begin and you'll find out what I'm talking about.

...joking

To explain the situation in 1944 there is a map on the actual Rue du Phare's Bunker.
http://www.casimages.com/i/141130082355601983.jpg
Key locations and fortifications were:
-the Eastern bunker taken by Cpt.Cousins and his men during the night
-The Western Bunker taken after many casualties
-Flakships which came back to port right before the landings and slaugthered the commandos climbing the Western hill.

To conclude,
I would have loved that the elevation in FH2 would have been more accurate (not enough steep IMAO),
to have a deeper depth of view, to have more accurate fortications according to the real place (including flakships, would be amazing).

Anyway, this map is already vvery nicely done, just wanted to point some importants componments that have been important during the real battle.

Some gifts:
Memorial Plaque in front of Cpt.Cousins bunker
http://www.casimages.com/i/141130082347300566.jpg

And a nice view

I just looked at the real pictures, didn't need to look at the ingame ones to understand which image represented what. I think that is pretty telling. In a very good way. Thank you dev's for a great mod.

Well I have to admit that I'm learning perfectly the map before to go on the field like that I can recognize most of place when I'm taking picture on the field  ;) And you can't imagine how it's a really great feeling to discover a real place that seems to be familiar to you because you played in it virtually before !

TS posted earlier about Keren but I just wanted to share the awesomeness of how well the other side of the train station matches up with FH2s model: 8)

The Keren Train Station, one of my favorite statics ingame. Why?

1. Because it looks awesome and very close to the original.
2. Awesome layout, cool place to fight in and around.
3. Most important: It is one of the best examples for the love and dedication of the modellers and modding team, because they made such an awesome and unique static, just for ONE map!
