    Always happy to see another European terrain. Looks very promissing, if I just could have one suggestion - try rotating some of the trees and hedgerow bushes (screens 2,5,7) for a more lifelike feel maybe?

    Oterwise great and really looking forward to it.

    Thanks for the kind words all

    @topas
    Sizes and shapes of bushes will vary ect, but as for the part you refer to im using an exact copy of a actual picture and thats as close as it gets, however if the feel does become an issue i'll change.

    Small update, they'll be some uk road signs, brick pillboxes from WWII era which are still left over around here. Went out and took some so you guys can get an idea of what to expect (http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/n...B/4ee7f427.jpg). Will be a pond or two as well, also british Architecture.

    Right no more work tonight going to watch my Arsenal throw away their 3-0 lead at halftime and break my heart! .

    Cheers Jeza

    Map's looking good fella, can't wait to see it with some proper green English foliage! I've just started work on a Western Europe map myself, mine's the other side of London though, and I've only just finished my Sat image tonight so I'm a waaaay off release lol, I'm sure
    interested in how your planning to tackle your map's theme, the mail boxes etc that others have been talking about - my map is a built up urban area and I'm starting to worry about getting the English feel across without too much resource hogging detail and objects :/
    One question / thought btw, is your terrain all finished now? Just looks a little flat to me - for good game play I'd suggest you break up the map a little more, doesn't really matter how but you normally need some sort of cover, whether it's buildings and walls, vegetation, elevation variation etc. Large open areas with no cover or variation don't lend themselves well to varied game play. Having said that, it DOES look good for vehicle and armor use .
    Anyways, Good Luck!

    British sir, we're all in it together remember . I was hoping someone was working on a British territory.

    Jez, you definitely rang some bells there. Great work so far. I always thought someone would go for the Isle of Wight seeing as it's an island. But Kent is one of the nicest part of the UK ("England!" shat up) and I imagine there's plenty of flat terrain there? Should one want to encourage tank battles or random strolls with the local women from Strood. I think someone's made British road signs if you want to use them!

    All the best to you Jez.

    This is -AMAZING-. Well, I'm from Essex, so my invading army on this map will always be from the North!

    Is it too far West to be able to reenact the War and Peace show at Tunbridge Wells?
    The roads are real nice too. Loving the double yellow lines, phoar.

    I can never see the words "West Kent" without thinking of Nicky Campbell's classic spoonerism live on BBC radio...

    Thanks for the words above, sorry did not reply earlier!
    @DC39, cheers, will have signs and english Architectural structures along the line, read below, also some pill boxes (hopfully) from the area I live in.
    @the rest of you mukers, many thanks!
    Update

    Hello all, update for you all, have not been able to commit enough time on the map as I would have like'd, ideally I would have like to had it out the door since the last update, but have been busy with other such things you all know how it is, so apologies there. I thought I would post some screens after today small session, by now you should get the idea of what to expect, lots of english countryside, Uk buildings are in the pipes, no eta on them, so may release a placeholder with just UK roads and update at a later point. Anyway don't want to take up to much of your time, so here are the screens:

    1They'll be few houses out in the sticks along with some ponds, found in deeper forrest area's:

    2A Council estate area:



    3Farming complex within the village of bidborough:

    4Forrest backdrop from the farm:

    5Couple more screens from the far end of bidborough:



    HD links - 15+ Screens
    Spoiler:


    Once i'm happy with placements ect, they'll be a lot more detail and clutter added. Thanks for taking the time to view.

    Kind Regards Jeza
