Normandy Map Discussion


Lenux
 Share

Recommended Posts

I was watching this video

because its the first time I took time and interest in this WWII Normandy Map or to watch a demo YouTube.

 

Can there be any discussion on the process of creating that map at all?

 

So people can learn to create maps and have some info.

 

I say this because people keep wanting to do so and post things like Vietnam online findings but there is no source of info how to start projects. I know there will be tools later on mentioned in another thread but maybe more like the instructions on how if at all possible to discuss now, just thought to ask and help others that are willing.

 

(I'm reading through long thread now)

 

If NO is answer not to worry waiting is no problem.

 

Anyway WOW it does look good its good for those that want WWII stuff.

Some vids about 3D modelling can be found here, but none specific about buld maps:

But to build maps require the Maps SDK, and actually, none 3rd party has confirmed working on maps, only plans.

OK, thanks for the info, I saw that in another post, but thanks anyway.

 

I was/hoping for info on "Community Mod Map Creation Projects" so people can start to learn how its done as they wait for the tools to do so.

 

Maybe in years to come!

 

Kinda sad though, it is what it is, we move on!

 

I read much of thread and skipped a bit of the chatter stuff the MAP is small but will be intensive for a WWII scenario for those that love this period enjoy it and have fun. :joystick:

Not sure where to ask, so I'll ask here and hope for an official answer:

 

Will we get a heads up on the exact release date at some time closer to the actual release date? Right now its "Late May" but maybe a few days before release will we get an actual date?

It was said, a lot of time ago in a Newletter IIRC, release date is May the 17th. I haven't seen anything changing that since then.

Nothing more specific than late May has been said in anything recent. If it was older than that I am quite sure that ED would not have given a specific date.

Sith,

There seems to be a limitation on the ALGs with 100+ parking spots. The drop-down only goes up to 99, at least from my experience so far. Where would you like us to post stuff like this, if this is not the proper thread.

Asking for a Bugs and Problems section to be added here for this map, thanks.

Will the Normandy map be just France, or France and England? I'm guessing both if the allied forces want to have a place to take off from.

Question about disk footprint of 2.1 (and 2.5 eventually). Wondering if Ill have to upgrade.

 

Currently i have a 128GB SSD disk that I can dedicate to DCS: World. Well it's more like 120GB since the FAT system eats a bit off the top.

 

My question for the testers: What is the size footprint of Nevada + Normandy (2.1) currently?

 

Also, will 120GB of disk space be too low, once the Caucassus map is released and we have 2.5?

I don't want to derail this from the topic of Normandy,

 

but With all three terrains and most of the modules / campaigns you are looking around 100GB

 

If you do upgrade go for a 250 and you will be ok for a while.

Vlerkies,

 

is that the map from the Alpha release? The last shot I saw only went East as far as your WV, WA, WB.

 

Likewise, is that the whole map or is there more? (We're drafting some missions before release.)

I was wondering how the channel islands look in game ? Do they have same detail as Normandy?

 

Could someone post a possible screenshot?

 

Many thanks on advance

They have pretty good detail, countryside, urban, and industrial areas. they are not low detail so will be great for missions

 

a few quick screenshot below

Yup, looks the same in the alpha release in the mission editor

 

I put a 6 pack in my cockpit of my L39 and flew across the channel to Isle of white.

There are airfields well modeled in that area of the map (without navigating properly not sure which but assume the ones you see on the pic). No massive port or anything in Portsmouth though that I saw (but I was about 3 beers in thx to my imaginary trolly dolly)

I then headed east all the way hugging the coast right up to Manston.

Its all there from a 'basic topography' perspective. No white clilffs as such, just slopping green land in the Dover area.

As you fly over manston (technically off the map a long time already) you see the map pretty much end.
