Just to let you know, this map is actually becoming one of my favorite maps. You've done one hell of a job on it. I haven't played b5 yet but as far as b3 and b4 are concerned I thought it was incredible. I'm glad you opened up all the windows as well in the silo by removing the pipe, that was a good addition.

If I would do anything to it I would allow people to actually get out onto the silo's themselves by crawling through say a hole in the wall where maybe a shell had blasted through, just so it wouldn't be real easy for someone to follow but don't have it in the zone or anything. I'd love to see a person get shot up there and have them fall off, that would be pretty cool...:D:D:D

Yeah it has become one of my favorites as well. The atmosphere on the map is amazing. I have not tried b5 yet, but look forward to it.

yeah i think its worked out better opening up the top floor more,
As for opening up any side wall to get out to the edge, i wont do that,

yes you could get some funny shots falling,But there mught be som idiot who might go and try it for real:eek: and find out they dont respawn lol...

Im going to wait a bit now until i put it to final as i need game play and feedback as to what i might need to fix or do.I am also looking at my next map,it'll be a street fight possibly

You should do another Stalingrad map something like the Barrikady Gun Factory, which as a hole would be way to big an area but you could do a section of it like the housing settlement or fuel silos or even some of the work halls and warehouses.

I knew scanning this maps would come in useful one day ;) if the idea interests you I can provide more maps and photos

Right I will do although it will be quite a while later because I have to re-connect my scanner. You will get them by the end of the day though.

Well played it tonight with about 35 people, and the Pubs all loved the map. We played three rounds, and Axis won twice, allies once. Really a great map.

Only problem I had was the broken staircase on the left side of the silo it looks as though you can get over the broken staircase, but several people got stuck there, and had to commit suicide to continue playing. Other than that brilliant. I am still dying to try it with a Stug, but considering the Axis success tonight I am afraid:)
