[WIP] Prokhorovka (6)
« on: February 19, 2012, 02:17:27 PM »
Good evening, friends :D

Today, I will show you what I have been working on for months now, a new, fancy map for Eastern Front. I started work in late September but decided not to show anything to public until the map is halfway done. I did in that way because Narva was a big fail, so I didn't want to show off details of my new project too early this time.
It's not far from being finished, you'll probably see it coming alongside Ostheer if becomes a decent map.
I begun work on a six player map, because EF lacks maps of this type in my opinion. 4v4s almost never took place, especially when it comes to PVP games, but there are some 3v3 games from time to time. In that time, the most played 3v3 in Eastern Front was Red Ball Express, so I wanted to commit a unique, well balanced map of this type for the official EF map pool. I know, this map won't be able to compete with RBE, but at least, I hope it is played and you guys have fun playing it.

Maps name isn't final, still can be changed. Initially, I named it "Steppes of Stalingrad", but that of course is no official location where an important battle of WW2 took place.

Update #1





















As always - stay tuned for future updates ;)

Best regards to everyone out there!
Maxi

I disagree wth your statement that Red balls (lol) is the most popular map, at least as of now. Zhythomir (IDK how to spell it) seems to be much more popular now. Nevertheless GL on ur map Maxi :)

BTW what was Narva? Was that a map that was never finished ???. Just curious ;)

Great work, can't wait to man the trenches.
Ostheer is a new German faction for this mod.
It will be done when it is done.
Keep mapping and modeling.

Yes that's the only really soviet looking house. It can be found in: buildings>holland>buildings>plaster_3x1_rural_01 also make sure to check out: buildings>holland>buildings>wood_3x1_garage_01 (has the same look)

Thank you, everyone :D
Reading your comments always makes me smile ;)
Will probably be able to finish it in the next two weeks. One thing I forgot in the introduction - I was inspired by the World of Tanks map "Prokhorovka" as well as by Goobers map "Sicilia". Thanks to both :)

Zhythomir (IDK how to spell it) seems to be much more popular now.

Maybe, but when I started working on this map, Red Ball(s)  ;D was the most popular 3v3 map for sure.

BTW what was Narva? Was that a map that was never finished ???. Just curious ;)

Well, officially, it's still in the making. But as it is, the map doesn't deserve any more attention by me because it's crap. Its concept was nice, but I fucked it up. So no work on Narva, anymore. Two other maps were born yesterday, though. Let's see.. ;)

And this is exactly what I intended. Rural Soviet buildings were wooden and often had white window frames. The only thing that doesn't fit is that Relic's Dutch houses feature thatched roofs, whereas the Soviet originals had wooden ones. Just a matter of detail, though.

Update #2 - 80% done

Some trenches that weren't able to be finished in time - so they had to improvize!


Sneaky hidden trench in a wheat field. You won't find us until it's too late!


That view (ignoring the tank traps xD) makes you feel like having holidays - but appereances are deceiving!


What rural life is like..


Straight to the top, mf!


Looks inviting, doesn't it? Guess everyone would like to have a picnic there - just beware of those pesky mines!
