I'm just curious why many towns don't have sidwalks. I know there are probably many little villages and what not that don't have sidewalks, but seeing some screenshots from FH you almost expect to see some somewhere but they're usually not prevalent inside of towns, whether they be large or small sidewalks. I was just curious about them, are they a bugger to work with? Awkward to position? Not really worth the effort? Or just felt that they're not really needed to portray the basic overall feel to a map. As example, towns like Berlin, the town in Eastern Blitz, Stalingrad, road to ramelle. Also do we have any maps that have cobbelstone roads, I know some bridges do, cobblestone was pretty common, no? I did a search, but nothing, was just some food for thought. :beer:
arnham is one (the?) of the only maps i know with side walks. when i was fiddling with mapping (i quikly gave up coz it corrupted my bf42 :( ), the side walks were very small and needed to be possitioned perfectly for them to look any good. takes a LONG time.
I wondered that too but alot of the European towns I have seen pics and video of have no sidewalk or a very small one.
Yeah, I remember when I was in Germany that you just had "pedestrian areas" where only people could go. Bascially, same as street, except cobblestone.
Yeah, sidewalks are a nice touch. It'd be nice to see FH towns look more like towns, not random buildings thrown together in a motley mess.
sidewalks would indeed make the urban areas more convincing, another thing that's lacking in FH maps lik the new foy and such, are ditches along the roads out of town, allthough that 'd be cool I can imagine they'd have to be dry cause BF42 only allows a global water level, I've read an article though that BF2 'll be able to make various water levels :)

That's not really true. Of course, most (99.9999% may be?) of european villages streets have sideways today. And, at least in Spain, most of them had sideways 60 years ago. Here we don't have that mexican sand streets many northamericans think we have ;) And I've seen tons of photos & documentaries about WWII and I've seen sideways in cities & villages. And of course, there were villages without them too. Anyway, more sideways are needed in FH.
how about mappers using pavement instead of giving all towns dirt roads
