The sky looks astonishingly realistic and picturesque. I absolutely admire the lighting, too. I think that this map has got a real chance to become my new favourite. Now all that would be needed to fully satisfy me would be an El Alamein night map (with a bagpipe pickup kit! *trollface* by the way, there were quite some pipers present, charging alongside the infantry, so... maybe we could get some pipes as an ambient sound?  ;D)

I guess infantry might actually have a chance against armor here, pretty exciting change, wonder how it'll work out
still I'll miss the old version

The main actions at Matruh did indeed occur at night, including the famous break out by the Indians (something represented by the captureable German flag to the far south east of the map).  All in all, this will be a really nice change :3

AJ51 who made the first conversion was the son of a WWII Vet and he made the conversion for this exact reason.

Its nice to see this implemented. It will give the Germans a real fighting chance, I think. But will make Tank buster squads all the more scary.

Would rather it get a separate map.   :(

Sub-continental Indians also made up the largest standing army in the british commonwealth during WW2.

 It would kick some serious ass to see them in game someday, Turban's and Khukri FTW


edit: As a courtesy, would AussieJeff51 not be deserving of some credit for having created the initial version of this very map? he did come up with this idea years before...

That's true, he did make a SP Mersa Matruh Inf only night map back in 2008 and you have mentioned it now (here's the link for all you SP guys: Link)
, but I don't know if that is enough to credit him. Anyone can think of a map that's suitable for night battles. Especially during the NA-Campaign. He actually made 3 NA maps from that time into night maps. (Here we go: Links)
