Well, I got this idea today. I play your mod when it works, I'm not a nerd or a geek (I mean that in a good way) so I can't figure out why it says I need the cd in (and your thing was recomended to me by a friend, who told me his password to this site, as well) when it's already there, but who cares, ya'll know? I'm doing a history report on the 'Miracle of Dunkirk' and I thought of this briefly. Basically, my 'game plan' was the Germans have all their tanks and rifle and motorcycles used in the battle, same with the British and French, and the Germans start in one small corner with the Allies controlling everything else but a checkpoint across the English Channel they gotta get to. The idea is that the only checkpoint that can cause attrition is the one across the channel, necessitating the Allies (with inferior tanks, guns, numbers, etc) to escape across in boats. If there could be a timer for, say, 10 minutes, for the boats to spawn, than they could show up and save the Allies at the last possible second, just like in reality. So, the scenario would basically be Germans running around kicking everyone's ass and the Allies driving to safety in boats to return and kick German ass on D-Day. God I love history. I already said I'm no good at programming or graphics or anything, and this mod. seemed like the best one to approach with my ideas.

why make a mod or map where the germans win all the time, it would be pointless, because france or britain or any other allied countries would always lose, you gotta be fair, even i wouldn't make a map or mod where the bad guys always win, i like it to give both teams a chance to win.

Dunkirk didn't work that way. The reason the evacuation of dunkirk worked was because of a counter attack on German forces basically spooked hitler so he forced a stop on the attack. I THINK that couterattack 1940 is already based on that, although it may be based on the other counter attack

A dunkirk map..sure would be sweet...i'd also like to see a map or 2 that pits the allies vs Vichy France, e.g North Africa and Syria...just those two..the Vichy fought very hardly in Syria and in some areas in N.Africa. All you'd have to do is create a new skin for the French, a colonial one...and create 1 full desert map and 1 d-day for N.Africa map..the possibilites are endless!

There are already unbalanced maps, probably most of the new ones... Anyway i like the map idea but it should be somehow get balanced by giving the weaker army some more tanks or vehicles...

How much ground combat was there at Dunkirk? I thought Germany held back ground forces and tried to destroy the British with the Luftwaffe...

A better idea would probably be to leave out the evacuation. Make it a push map, Brits (and possibly French) defending against the German advance. The last point to be taken could be the beach.

Well it would be a nice idea, because dunkirk was a retreat, so a push map would make it. Dunkirk is the retreat after counterattack
