Greetings all! My last invasion is released! I've made a trailer, but I still think there's no one, who doesn't knows Omaha beach and it's bloody battle in 1944... I was having big troubles with my super short invasions, they were maximum 10 min, they weren't getting much attention... So this time you'll decide how long the battle will continue. I little change of the plan/history xD Let me "correct" the event - the english instead seizing more territories after securing the hill, they decided to take a refuge on the beach and wait for reinforcements, because they saw that the germans are too much. And you are here, from the "bad guys". You are controlling the axis forces on Hill 331 and it's leader - general von Stauff, who is the main target of the english. By telling this I don't want to offend any english person here, I know you are a lot, but just in this mission, like a mirracle, you will play with the Axis :p So how will you decide your destiny? Well, the enemy leader is Admiral Richard III "the Lionheart", adopted son of the legendary king, who one tryied to capture Jerusalem. You may hold the hill as long as you can and when you want to finish, train an army and kill the camping soldiers on the beach... they will attack you until they run out of army... have one on mind, that you don't have a large army and you can't hold the hill forever.Anyway, to make the atmosphere more military, I've found WW2 names for each of the units in the mission... And here they are:

For more info watch the trailer, or just try the map :) Feel free to tell me what can be improved and to post reviews... Attention! Do not restart the map or this could cause a direct blast into the skirmish menu!!! Have a nice combat! :)

Hypernova, first please tell me what is wrong in them and I will surely update it... Just to add that the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc are very high and raise very quickly, so if this is the thing you don't like, know I won't fix it :D If you want some more details, stones or whatever it is - write, I'll get the 5 :)

(comments removed by Sulis, and I would suggest that YOU read the CoC which clearly states that you must not try to avoid the swear filter, nor must you attack ANY member for whatever reason. This is your final warning.)

Hypernova90 Ok I will be more specific. When I rotate the map en see the other side of the cliffs where the Axis base is, the transition isn't as realistic as it should be in my opinion. It is just sand and then suddenly the high cliffs. This doesn't look that realistic I think, just use some stones to fill it up and it should be sufficient. I know it is hard to explain but it's just like when people place high or medium plain then the transition between the minumum height and medium or high plain doesn't look that great.

If you still don't know where I am talking about please send me your email and I will take a screenshot and edit it with paint so I can mark it for you ;)

Exactly what I said and though :) I suspected that you won't like the quick raising in there... The truth is that the hill at Pointe du Hoc are also so high and I don't want to change it... I mean in this case this makes the map more realistic ;)
Hypernova90 Ah now I see. Well I will say it isn't your fault that Crusader makes the cliff look ugly. But still I am considering changing it into a 5. Because I love the map and played it already 5 times, I think you could have added a bit more eyecandy on the Lionheart castle, but I still think it's great. I think I will let the 4.5 for map design for what it is right now.
