This is looking good, very well done!

I got DoI with the idea of map something but I must admit I got a bit scared by the size of maps… I guess is not mandatory but they are a bit big.

If you're coming from cs mapping, like me, then the levels will do seem quite big. The risk of losing yourself in the details is pretty high as the levels are about two to three times larger than your average de_map. That's why I set a rule for when working on this level: if it gets complicated, take a step back and simplify.

Yeah, surely you need to be very disciplined.

Not having even finished a map for CS tho, it's scary. And what bothers me is not just the size to build, but as well when playing I was wishing maps were a bit smaller.

I still have the allure tho, WW2 has always been my fav setting and I'm thinking in terms of layout should be slightly easier than CS, as you are planning frontal attacks, instead of circling layouts for rotation. Makes sense?

Ill see if I can run around it before leaving Thursday

So I tried it briefly today with the bots, on the first two game modes to try both sides.

I think this is very solid. Feels good.

My comments would be about the first front for the Allies, reminds me quite the first phase of Crete.
After A is captured maybe a bit too labyrinthic with many alleys and little rooms... I feel there are too many windows.

Other than that seemed to work great!

Wish I could give it a try :( you testing it with the DoI team anyway? 

No, but I got a lot of feedback from the community and I had a super secret stronghold playtest earlier with a few fellas from our forums. 

Some pics from the playtest:

Looking at these pics with all the tanks, I was just imagining a game mode similar to payload for TF2, where a team would have to stop a tank (or more) by planting sticky charges while if it reaches a certain point it opens fire destroying the enemy team spawn and winning the game :D

would be very Private Ryan ending fight. Spoilers! Duh!

The following months will probably be just as challenging, but I'm thrilled to see the end result!

You have no idea, man.

I had hoped to release it by now, but there's been a lot of issues to resolve. I'll spare everyone the details and just post some screenshots from a recent test.

Updated the map today. Important changes include the addition of a flank route in the first area, rebalancing of middle area and mandatory desert camo for german troops. Next update will address the final area.
