File Description

Another nice map from Active9 studio. This time its a dusk map and once again supported for both BF1942 and DC.

This is a map located in Normandy, south-east of Caen. The map is based on a true mission, codenamed Epsom. The basic aim of Epsom was to sweep round to the west and south of Caen and reach the main Caen-Falaise road. This would almost encircle the German defenders around Caen.

Active 9 brings us another quality map in "Hill 112". From the axis base camp fires and burning street lamps to the sounds of Hitler's impassioned speeches on the radio, there is enough detail here to impress for many bloody rounds of combat. Great lighting effects, new sky textures, new building skins (inside and out) and what appear to be some new house models are just some of the features within. The train station is a particularly nice touch and capturing some of the CP's will be difficult without falling to your death. I was a bit disappointed in the ground textures themselves as they seem a bit drab, but it is really only noticable from the air. Active 9's attention to ambient effects and visual details sets them apart from the average mapper. They keep getting better and better. I highly recommend the download.

Active9 Studio Presents : Hill 112
-------------------------------------------------------------------

The date is june 27th 1944, the sun is going down. The 4th King’s Shropshire Light
Infantry (4KSLI) of 159th Infantry Brigade represent the allies team. Their task
was to attack the hill, which was defended by the 12th SS Panzer Division. The
allies start in their base and can capture 2 points right ahead: the depot building and
the town colleville. this is a pretty important town because it is near to the
only intact bridge over the river Odon. Axis can capture Baron sur Odon where
additional tanks and an apc will spawn. Allies and axis need to fight for the
bridge because its the only way for vehicles to get to the hill.

The map's lighting is set pretty dark, but still playable. you see pretty far away
like you would at dusk. It makes it even more fun due to the fact that you can hide
everywhere on the map, each object looks like an enemy if seen from a distance.

A TUNNEL is located near Colleville, to provide quick acces from the back of the town
to the bunker near the intact Odon bridge. You can either use it and risk being
trapped or use the ruins that are on top of it as cover.

The environment sound includes far off bombing sounds, birds, frogs, river...
Also encluded are wrecked tanks, apc's, jeeps and even a crashed b17.
