Mersa Matruh - Night
« on: 01-04-2012, 19:04:23 »
In the upcoming 2.45 patch, the map Mersa Matruh (originally by Lobo), will now take place at night. This conversion was done by Natty. You can view the screenshots below.

Stukas at night? But I need sleep! :P


Anyway looks nice and it's bound to give us that real NA feeling... (although I will miss sniping panzers from the watertower...     Or maybe... Now they can't see me so easily... Woooho!)

Woa that looks totally awesome! And the Stukas wills till be usefull? And tank combat must be totally different maybe infantry and tank combat willnot to totaly separated from each other as it is often onpublic servers on this map today.
I am gonna miss the longrange tank fights though.
In general love to see another night map. Really cool idea and totally enexpected cant wait to play it.

Will the daylight version still be included in FH? Would be sad to loose it.
Will there be Flak searchlights? Would be awesome!

Why? You can still have them. When a tank fires, it is awfully visible, you know ;)

Just wondering why this change? The battle took place at night? Just to know, cheers  ;)

Most NA battles took place at night, evening or early morning because it was cooler.

And moving during night was harder to spot. Dust clouds and all that.

I really hope the day version of this is still available to play, it's a really great map and I definitely prefer the daytime version, having played both. Nonetheless I'm sure it will be good.

I'm quite sure that you have not played that version... Who the balls are you if you have?

This could be the real update.
Mersa Matruh battle took place late between the 23rd - 28th June 1942. The part depicted in the FH2 map (the penetration by axis forces through the minefield south of Mersa Matruh) took place lateon the 26th June.

Having the map showing as a night map could be more realistic and plus we need more night maps. Have always loved Hyacinth.

Screenshots look absolutely great! (Fingers crossed it is a real update)  :)
