File Description

Vietcalm is back and this time he's leaving with a bang. He's produced yet another stunning map with a large description. Sadly, this is his last map and we'll miss you.

My third and final map. I've always loved the First World War and feel it's been as neglected by the gaming industry as it has been indulged by the literary one. There is already a WW1 themed map entitled 'The Somme', a small 2 vs 2 from which i have adapted some atmosphere settings for my own map. As the first (as far as i am aware) of its kind for CoH it should be sought out and played. It does a very respectable job of representing what often comes to mind when thinking of a first world war battlefield and I've had fun with it for many hours. But it doesn't have any real trenches! Trenches are invaluable to the memory of the first world war and this map contains my own attempt at making a map where trenches can be, not only useful, but at time necessary. I have laid throughout each sides trench system manpower and munition points so to capture your enemy's resources you will have to enter their trenches. Wooden bunkers are the best I could manage for dugouts but I don't think they're so out of place. Each side has their own trench network within their starting territory, in between lies the vast expanse of no-man's land (resource points are also placed here). I've included a few dilapidated trenches for some variety in this area along side the many shell holes and mines. Yes, there are mines owned by both side scattered about to add a little more danger to going over the top. There's a very small and very shelled out town to hold, however both sides have four howitzer artillery guns to use at their disposal and while bases are out of range, the town is not.

To keep things as realistic as possible I have limited the build space and players start with two barracks. There is not enough space for any building that allow the deployment of tanks (I hope). I recommend using the 'Infantry only' Mod (downloadable from filefront) to ensure that off map tanks can't be used either. Although people have reported crashes on loading with this mod, this seems to occur only when the CoH Launcher is not used to start the game with the mod. I have played for many hours without issue using the launcher and the infantry only mod. The map should be playable with or without this mod though.

This is forever BETA I'm afraid. I will not be able to mod for CoH after this but I have made every effort to find bugs and anomalies in this map and fix it up. There's (hopefully) a high chance that you will not come across anything wrong at all but I have been unable to test and adjust this map as much as I would have liked.

Finally, there is a mod project under way called 'The Great War' designed as a total conversion for CoH into a world war one rts. I am not affiliated with them, but please go and give them your support.

TL;DR:

1. World War One Themed
2. Usable Trenches
3. Small Town
4. 1 vs 1
5. BETA but hopefully no issues.
6. Infantry only.
7. Start with artillery.
8. Play my map.
9. ???
10. Profit!
