Hi all,

I've been working on a new map for a while and it's getting close to completion. I just have to fix some lightmaps (cammo nets etc.) and generate the final navmesh. The map is based on the battle of Keren which took place in Eritrea (East Africa). Information about the battle can be found here: Wikipedia, Comando Supremo & Ball of Fire (book about 5th indian). I got a question about minefields btw. How do I know if they are placed right (in the editor)?

What map sizes does it have. You said something about navmeshes, which of these map sizes hve singleplayer. I think I will reserve judgement untill I've actually walked around it, but the preliminary looks good.

My first thought on seeing the screenshots: 'Far Cry 2' (that's a compliment btw)

You've certainly done a brilliant job with the atmosphere and look of the map. Looks like this is my cue to get a PC upgrade and start playing FH2.

Not wanting to read a wall of text from a wiki article, Im sure Im not the only one who would like to hear the historical background of this battle with your own words? Hmm? :)
