It seems like Ts4ever is making all the maps for the mod now! Looks nice and humid, I like the swampy look.
You are bathing in misery and hope, waiting for someone to come and pull the plug.

Pretty map! Just managed to catch up with the stream, I love the the kind of "spit and polish" you are putting in the new patch!

Thank you for your work, cheers to another 10 years of FH2!  ;D

The more I look at the newer maps that are coming out, the less polished the older (mostly African) maps look to me. Am I imagining this?

I don't mean gameplay wise. It's more about the general look of the map. Perhaps it also has to do with the fact that there's only really desert out there and not much you can do on them (Sidi Bou Zid looks great, but that one has actual vegetation). Maybe it also has to do with the fact that some of the newer maps lack those exaggerated terrain features (huge hills like on Supercharge or El Alamein).

You're not- what you're seeing is the general artistic improvement of FH2's mappers over the years.  Experience counts a lot. ;)

No, not imagining things, later maps are better usually. I disagree on the desert looking boring though: maps like Sidi Rezegh (an airfield littered with you-name-it-we-have-it plus hangars and the best building in the mod), Mareth Line (trees, trenches, bunkers and hills) and Alam Halfa (craters, barriers, supplied outposts) are all interesting looking maps imo.

plus many of the later statics/ weapons for Normandy and other theaters are better optimized. Lots of things were learned about the engine as the years went on.

also Normandy lends itself to more 1:1 scale maps which always tend to look more realistic in scale imo. no big hills/ strong points a few meters apart from one another.
