wrong! that map is the village in wich Kampfgruppe Peiper had it's last victory, and after wich the tide started turning for him!

as a tip here is some famous footage taken during the battle, and you will recognise these places on the map!

It was only a guess :). Thanx for the info.

no i don't actually, the book is verry expensive and the few free images were verry usefull, besides i went to the village last summer and took pics!

but PM me if you got any info, you can become a DH historian if you want ;)
anyways don't use my sig as a reference if you have the book, the map has changed alot since!

TodSky, where did you get that sign? For me it looks that soldier is having a ZB 26/30 with a rare 30-round magazine.

I've just been going through the all media and video releases and I just want to say to DH team that, all this hard work will be worth it in the end. Keep up the good work!

I would like to suggest some great ambient sounds for darkest hour,please don't use the same(stock )sounds(which doesn't mean they are bad of course,but we heard them already so much).I like the brutal ambient sounds from the original dod very much,check this out,just amazingly atmospheric:

Aah the good ol' days!

Oh how theyve ruined it :(


But saying that, after playing the likes of RO, playing games without IS and a big fat cross hair is totally out of the question! :rolleyes:

Sweet i've liked that M10 since i saw a program on Discover where they refurbished an old M10 and the guy that commanded it stayed near the museum. It was cool to see his reaction when they showed him that they had brought his actual tank that he fought in during Normandy back to life. As usual nice update fellas.

erm take a look at RO maps, if you mean deco layer grass we have it in some maps but its not full grass deco grass brings the UE2.5 engine to a crawl even on a small map like brecourt we had to significantly cut down on the amount of grass being used.

DH Rel Update Part 3: Rule Britannia!

DH Rel Update Part 3: Rule Britannia!

Darkest Hour Release Update Part 3: Rule Britannia!


Another week has flown by already but as promised we'll keep bringing you new stuff if we can. This week is no different. First off we're finally showing you our Brit infantry in game. Please note, before we get a lot of complaints, the Brits pictured are wearing the MkIII helmet the MkII helmet is also in game I just didn't take any screenshots of it. The Brits will be helping push the Germans back on several of our Tank and Combined arms map as well as having their own Infantry map with the first release.


Our second British Commonwealth related image this month is the astonishingly huge Le Mesnil Patry. This Canadian tank map was created by {Snipe}Bando and promises to be tank heaven for those of you who like the larger RO armor maps.


The last thing we are proud to unveil is the reworking of our GI model. After 18 months in development we felt that the old GI from way back when we started in December '06 simply didn't cut the mustard anymore. Tman has modeled two outstanding variants for us one with an assault vest and the other with the standard issue jacket. Both were textured by Aeneas2020.


In other mod news I would like to post a thank you to Psycho_Chicken who has been helping us sort out our website, forums and ftp in the wake of recent troubles. Also please join us all in welcoming Pro to the team, he'll be joining myself on the Texture team and I am sure you will be seeing some of his work very soon.

Until Next Time,
Aeneas2020 & the DH Team
