Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi I have been busy recently and did not have time to look into the details of city names and their locations. The major city locations are perfectly fine, but I was not able to identify smaller towns/villages that you have in the top right part of the map. Maybe they existed back in 1941 and vanish...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi Randowe

The map is amazing, thanks!

Can you send the map picture and "handwrite" names of basic cities? Then I can take a closer look at details. Without knowing which city which - at the moment I can only guess - it is a bit difficult to provide further feedback.

Regards, Alex

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi Randowe

I assume that all the temporary bridges and cableways are modelled with "bridge engineers" in OG/PG2. So, thanks for agreeing to remove that railroad bridge ;)

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi again I did some further reading of the railroad bridges, and to my knowledge there was no bridge back in 1941. The bridge you mentioned was finished only in 1949. Sooo... if want to cater for better historical accuracy, I would suggest removing it. However, maybe you can keep this version of the...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi Randowe The map looks great! Here are some comments and questions: - Is there a way to generate the map with city names rendered on top? It will help me to understand the scale of the map and which cities you included. - Do you plan to keep most hex in the current green "grassland" colour or will...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi Randowe Unfortunately i lack the map of 9th September. The original files can be up to 100mb for one map and download speed from the FTP server is pretty slow, so i am not able to provide day-by-day informations yet. I already dowloaded more than 200 situation maps, but it will take me some more ...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi radowe Yes, I read in some sources/documents that LSSAH was refitting after the battle for Kherson, while other German infantry divisions were trying to cross Dnieper. However, interestingly enough, some Soviet sources do mention LSSAH fighting for Khakovka bridgehead. What I found in one documen...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

There is no discussion thread for the battles of the Black Sea and Sea of Azov (yet). If you want to discuss things further, feel free to create one :yes Ok, we can create later the one. My primary source for my Black Sea Campaign are the German General Staff of the Army situation maps. They were c...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi radowe Take your time with the Kherson map, there is no rush. I will of course be more than happy to see the first version to provide my feedback. Speaking of the Kherson map, if I recall right you mentioned that you have been working on the campaign for battles at the Black Sea and the Sea of Az...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Btw, will your version of the LSSAH campaign differ much from the other versions? Will you have a lot of new scenarios and maps? I took the LSSAH campaign from the Adlerkorps website and have already released an updated version with a number of fixes and improvements making it more historically cor...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Yes, MAPX format will be perfect, I have experience with both MAPX and old good MAP formats. I checked PG2 MAP format, it indeed does not support "shallow water", so I will need to do some manual hacking of converted MAP file. All right, then i will go back to the drawing board and come back here w...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi Randowe Kherson map looks amazing, I was looking exactly for something like that! I also liked the fact that you included Ingulets river. It is somewhat irrelevant for the LSSAH campaign but it would be more critical for e.g. "Black sea" campaign to model retreating Soviet 9th army. Can you consi...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi again A small correction to my previous post. We actually do have a map combining together Rostov and Taganrog, #1365. I just was not entirely sure whether it would be suitable for modeling only battle for Taganrog as the latter is on the left edge of the map. We can put it as a very low priority...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi Radowe I need to double check information on "reeds" and "sands" around Kherson. While reading historical documents about the battle for Kherson in 1941, I do recall them mentioning reeds, but maybe it was only certain specific areas. Anyway, any map is better than nothing and I will be waiting f...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi Randowe Thanks for a quick response! I am new to the forum and was expecting to receive some email notification about you having sent some response; so I noticed it only now. I would prefer to have a classical PG2 map size. I noticed that some maps, which you have created for other Southern parts...

Re: MAPS: Request map makers for help

Hi all Does anybody work on or plan to make a map for Kherson (Ukraine)? I noticed that "@randowe" added recently a number of maps for Southern Ukraine, such as Nikolaev, Kakhovka, and Melitopol, thanks a lot for great job! I am extending now the LSSAH campaign, where one of the scenarios is Kherson...
