I think you should take a look at the upcomming game 1944 D-Day Operation Overlord... it contains all of normandy in one large map 160x160 km... there will be more than 200.000 units running around, civilians, animals, etc etc. and the graphics will be great (I tell you... some of those screenshots they show us alpha members just make you go :naughty:... )

Guess Operation Barbarossa would fall under this type of map wouldn't it?

I doubt having half of Europe is feasible, its too big for a 4x4 map :uhm: Smaller theaters like Malaysia, Poland or Finland perhaps could be made this way tho.

Create it and it will be cool. All he is saying is having a little buit of everything in there, have an airfield in the west with spitfires and such, zeores from the east. city in the middle and desert landscape to the south. I think it would be a cool map. Im jaded now when it comes to the "realism" thing. Yeah, its close, infantry is great, but I dont know, ever fly that russian fighter in seelow heights? what's it the space shuttle? That thing will fly straight verticle right off of take-off! So I say make it, if its cool, they will come!

Combineing whole Europe 1944-1945 war is hard and would't look too good. But makeing all WWII theaters in one map?!

yep, just for shits and giggles mind you. anyway, whatever, plenty of bad maps. We play them often. I dont think the guy is interested in a complete replica (unless Im wrong) I mean its not like "here is finland and over there is berlin and over there is stalingrad and the north sea and all of that. From what Im gathering its only representation. Having soviet vehiles spawn in the russian area, Axis stuff spawns from germ/far east/ and italy. (large lake to south and desert further south representing Africa. Anyway, it sounds interesting to me.

I don't know if I like the idea of having a Kingtiger fight british and american tanks in Normandy, and Soviet tanks in Moscow, at the same time. 4x4km is obviously to small, it might be feasible with, say, 25x25km minimum.

schoolkidForgotten Hope is not a real time strategy mod, nor is it a massive multiplayer online mod. I doubt Battlefield 2's engine would be able to handle it realistically. I'm not saying it's impossible, but the end result wouldn't really feel like Europe, know what I mean? (Pictures American jeep capturing Berlin, Germans must make their last stand in Paris)

There is always the push map feature that could overcome that problem though ;)
