Glückwunsch!

 

This map takes all the terrain design features I like about Schwemlitz to a size which allows for more gameplay styles than that nice but small map.

 

Also you added urban and industrial areas - looking forward to play some "What If Cold War Gone Hot" on it!

 

Thank you for your dedication and tenacity to bring such a big, real world map to release! :respekt:

Congrats on the release. Happy to see a Celle successor. Map is really a beauty and will provide many hours of joy for sure.

 

What I like most is the custom objects countering the limited grass render distance. Really worth the effort. Thanks again for all the hard work you put into it.

Ok, I went on a drive for half an hour in the dawn and wow... This terrain is fantastic. I really love the lighting. 

Two things I noticed: There are no environment sounds. These are definitely still needed but then the terrain would be pure magic. And secondly, the town signs look odd. Ok - I'm from Rhineland-Palatinate and never went to this region (Hamburg only) but AFAIK the signs are nationwide consistently. 

 

GREAT JOB!

@silola's tool is simply ingenious.

Fun fact I may have accidentally deleted the environment sounds when I deleted the ocean sound effect... We can push an update to the config and fix it.

Yeah I'm going to go ahead and push a hotfix tonight for that. Whooops. And we plan on fixing the grammatical error on the town signs as well as changing them all over to the tall version of the town sign.

Awesome map, huge fan of larger, more flat forest and field terrain and this hits a great spot now that I'm looking for something where we can utilize vehicles and infantry.

 

Did a bit of scenic driving as well;

Very nice map. I was enjoying the quick videos on Reddit as well. Excited to see it come out so quickly.

 

Easy to see a lot of love went into this map. Feels 'real'. Its one of those maps you need to get down on the ground and just wander.

 

See a LOT of patrols on this map :):)

 

Nice job!

Amazing map, which was very well done.

 

One quibble:  the low rock walls that line some roads have no effect on vehicles.  They have shadow and appear to have mass, but when driving a vehicle across them, there's no effect on vehicles.

 

I love the crop fields.  This is tank country, baby!

This was done purposefully. The geometry on these objects tended to have adverse effects (i.e. throwing them into the air) on tracked vehicles. Given the game-play implications, for now they do not collide with vehicles.

It doesn't flip vehicles or fling them in the air, but if the geometry isn't done perfectly it will stop a vehicle dead in its tracks (causing the vehicle to become destroyed/stuck). In the future I may spend the time and actually do the geometry on the rock wall, but as for now we are just using the CUP rock wall with no geometry.

This map is a @#$%ing triumph, no other way to put it. Huge, varied, beautiful satmap and palette, wonderful lighting, artful placement of stock and mod content, brilliant water implementation. I could keep going but I'd need a thesaurus. This map is so unbelievably immersive that I half expected to trip over some local nudists around some of the lakes*.

 

Congratulations and thanks to WA Lancer and  team for a truly outstanding terrain which will be an instant classic I'm sure.

 

*Speaking of lakes, my only tiny niggle with this terrain is the ocean and seagull sounds around even the smallest of bodies of water -alluded to by Haggerty.

@tpw  Yeah, we removed it initially but we accidentally deleted all other sounds, I just did a quick hotfix to put them back in last night. When I have more time ill remove the ocean sounds correctly.

It appears that these walls also blow up helicopters if you land on them. That is a little annoying. :P
