The loading screen looks a bit early 80's (lets give the Conscripts mullets!), but apart from that, its looking pretty good.

Hello,
thank you very much for your positive review.
I'm glad, you enjoy it.
I think so, too, enough room for big tanks and
enough cover for infantry.

Nice graphics card too, those screenshots are fantastic.

I think the loading screen should really be a screenshot too, though. I'm sure you won't have any trouble with that.

Gotta love this map, the graphics looks so good. It has a very unique look. We would like to include it.

It looks so much like a tank battle map, you should call it prochorovka, after the famous tank battle.
This is what you gotta do:

1. Change file name to "6p_Prochorovka".

2. Change map list ingame name to "Prochorovka (6)".

With that, we're ready to do the largest tank battle in history.  :D

Map still needs proper description. Should be some background about the battle.
And I'm sorry, I made a spelling mistake, you need to quickly change file name and map name.

Its all here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Prokhorovka [nofollow]

Once that is done, map is in.

Here is the description:

Prokhorvka July 1943

Early in the morning.It's a wonderful sunrise.
Sunrays are shining through the walls of an old ruin.
It's a very calm morning.
Suddenly there is a noise in the distance.
What's that? Is it the upcoming thunderstorm?------
No, it's the noise of Russian tanks.
It's the beginning of the largest tank battle of World War II, the
Battle of Prokhorvka.


The Battle of Prokhorovka was a battle fought by the German Wehrmachts
Fourth Panzer Army and the Soviet Red Army's 5th Guards Tank Army on the
Eastern Front during the Second World War.
It is one of the largest tank battles in military history.

Following their disastrous defeat at Stalingrad during the winter of 1942-43,
the German armed forces launched a climactic offensive in the East known as
Operation Citadel on July 4,1943. The climax of Operation Citadel, the
Battle of Kursk, involved as many as 6,000 tanks, 4,000 aircraft and
2 million fighting men and is remembered as the greatest tank battle in history.
The high-water mark of the battle was the massive armor engagement at
Prochorovka (also spelled Prokhorovka), which began on July 12.
But while historians have categorized Prochorovka as a victory of improved
Soviet tactics over German firepower and heavy tanks, new evidence casts
the struggle at the “gully of death” in a very different light.
