Today we tested the 16p mode on this. It was quite fun, but some issues still remain. The 16p layer focuses on the village. It is a pushmap witht he Russians attacking. They get an Su76M and a wheeled maxim for support.

How does the wheeled maxim work? Like a lafette kit or more like a pushable AT-gun? How fast are you then and how well pretected are you? Dev Blog about the Maxim anyone?

It works like a pushable at gun. If you want, I can grab some screens later.

Ok, Maxim on wheels:



While pushing:



You can actually push it pretty fast atm, I don't know if that will be changed. I would say at about walking speed.

Iron Sights:



On a related note, I didn't really like how the StuGIV skin looked on this map:



It is very bright, which looks good on St. Lo, but not so much in these light settings. As you may have noticed, we have three basic western Europe paint schemes for tanks and other vehicles: The bright Normandy ones, darker Autumn colours and winter. I decided to try and reskin the StuG IV in the autumn colour scheme:



As you can see, it fits in better now.

Ts4EVER а Maxim can be moved? Yes, but his armor protects the shooter or an improvisation?

Maxim looks awesome, I had really hoped it would be used the way you're describing TS. I'm pumped.

Nice job on the Stug skin too. Very nice touch.

Very nice, love the maxim and the new StuG skin!  :) How do the guys who push and shoot look from outside? That would also be great to see.

And one more question, is the map set in dawn or dusk?

Oh, great for the Stug. I was just planning to make a texture for it. Seems I don't have to anymore! :)

Great Ts4Ever! Always enjoy these blogs.

Is it just me, or the map looks a bit too red or perhaps too much saturation?

I am guessing in firing position you lay down behind the Maxim (like the Cannone 47/32), while standing when pushing? Does the shield provide any cover?
