8 inches should be enough snow to blanket an entire area and not leave bald spots, at least on flat areas.
Either way, this map has ready been textured. And everything on the map is already so beautiful, so there's not many real legitimate reasons to complain. That is, until we see what the FPS kick will be. It's those trees. Nevada barely has any, and gets easy FPS. The current Caucasus gets worse frames the higher you extend out the tree visibility. Normandy has lots, and some people get stutters and bad FPS (I get the latter), so I tremble to think about the kick this new Caucasus will have!

Hell, I live in northern New England and you can find plenty of winter pics with no snow.

Obviously it doesn't snow that often in Batumi, given its location. The snowfall that helped ring in the 2016 new year was the exception rather than the rule:

GEORGIAN JOURNAL: Let it snow! - Batumi becomes a winter wonderland.

In that case, simply make sure to set the date of the missions to winter 16/17 ;-)

I live at 8000ft in the Colorado Rockies and some days in winter will have no snow on the ground. As was said. Winter doesn't always mean deep snow.

Then again. Some days it takes me 3 hours to dig out my Jeep.

Yup, I think its a bit of a cop out to make winter textures solid snow. I would rather have spotty snow, areas of a lot of snow, some areas without. I am pretty happy with the current direction, I think its much better than past Winter textures.

Wonder if the brownouts will be replaced by whiteouts with choppers when winter season is set on Caucasus 2.5?

Agreed. I like the way ED made the winter for the Caucasus. Full of snow, everything is white I remember using a mod which did exactly that. I liked it a lot, I'm glad to see it's let's say, official now. I don't have to bother myself with mods and stuff...

Guys, wait till its in our hands before we start judging too much, its all WIP. ED appreciates feedback, but its not realistic to give it until you actual are using the products in question. If you have some wishlist items, please use the wishlist section of the forum to discuss.

You don't think an early and late winter map is a good idea? One with heavy snow and one with light snow. The spring map could be eliminated to ease the workload.
