The thing about a winter texture for Normandy, is this. By the time the winter of 44-45 arrived, the war had moved away from Normandy. Most of France was in Allied hands.
Now you could, of course, fly out of England and "make believe" that it's 1943 or '42. But if you want to be historically correct, you wouldn't be flying missions from a snow covered Normandy airfield.

I agree with hgvip. I’d say probably 80% of people don’t fly historically accurate missions, so yeah, bring all seasons to Normandy, have a nice change.

if u want a historical correct mission, the devs would need to delete a couple of airfields on the map anyway as pointed out by a couple of members here. the current plane setting we have isnt historical either when its about normandy. so...winter cant hurt imo, as its impossible anyway to create historical missions on current normandy map.

With the P-40F we would have two Allied a/c that were operational in '43. Anyway a winter texture would be a bonus. The missions I am interested in take place from Jan - Jun '44 so ideally we could have two winter textures, one with snow and one that is late winter/early spring when there are no leaves on the trees but not much snow. Launching sorties across the channel in March with the air temperature 5°C and bright green fields with fully leaved trees is a bit of an immersion breaker.

Nineline has confirmed on several occasions that the map is feature complete. Our best hope is that Barthek or someone else like him takes an interest and makes a texture mod that covers the AGLs so we can choose to use them or not and gives us a winter texture.

Indeed.
'Tis a shame that we have to hope for community mods for this though.

winter textures would be a bonus indeed. BUT what i would really like to see, is the implementation of speedtree and with this the implementation of proper hedgerows typcial for this area. now we only have trees surrounding the fields. this doesnt look correct and not good either imo...

Speedtrees indeed AND the option to turn off all those ALG's. The map is great but locked into a very small time window....

yeah, deleting airfields from the map would be a great feature for this map indeed.

Yes! I would dearly love to see:
1. The ALGs changed to a "removable" feature, and
2. Completing the "placeable" airfield asset in the mission editor so mission makers can add correct period airfields for specified dates.
