Pavlov's house (the little white building, surrounded by some other appartments) with the Mill 80-90 meters to the east from Pavlov's and 120 meters to the west from the Volga.
Very desperate position. No wonder Pavlov and his men tried (and succeeded) to keep it.

How close are some of the locations? Well...

The link in this topic to another talking about of grain elevator (with a video) there to a gamer site that show comparasion between map and real buliding. Incredible!!!!

I think devs have much more real material for make the maps, here is when I miss some kind of "dev blog" or "dev" explanations about the historical background of the maps.

@Rrralphster Thanks explain it!

BTW Maybe this topic could be moved to "History" forum, I saw much more info like this there.

Whoa!! I'm really sorry, everyone. The above garbage was me attempting to copy/paste a picture from one of the preceding posts. I'm not sure what happened, but I will not try that again. I've already reported the post asking for deletion.

Once again, you all have my apologies for that mess.

-EDIT- Many thanks to the forum mods for removing that monstrosity.

Impressive. After looking at the Grain Elevator historical photos and playing the map right after, it felt even more awesome than before :)

Amazing thread. THIS is what a lot of people don't get when they complain about the maps. "They are too urban" or "where are the forest maps", etc. They don't realize these were built from real, historical battlefields in Stalingrad. It was urban warfare, that's just the way it was. And the scenes so nicely rendered..

Personally, I prefer larger maps with more terrain myself, but I understand they have recreated the Stalingrad environment and done a pretty amazing job with it.

Great thread, good photos. This should be shown to everyone complaining about maps. Excellent work, devs!

I hope there will be more historical locations from Stalingrad featured, like some more open areas at steppes with trenches where fighting took place after encirlement of the 6th Army.

I was simply blown away by the new Red October and Pavlov maps. You can almost smell them when working your way through a match.

Apartments (Danzig) and Station are challenging too but Grain Elevator is another great map, really evocative.

Well done!

There are these interesting pics to show the scale of the city.
There are some mistakes in the places he have pointed out.
I'm convinced he picked the wrong building for the Univermag department store. It the building precisely beneath his orange
rightangle. The curved building at the long side of the park..

What a great aerial photos!!

If you look in Red October map, when you spawn as soviet, in the left you can see an "strange" number of perfectly lined wood house... look in the plane, that just identical!

Actualy they where inside the grain elevator ..imo as some of the first "westebers" since ww2. Dont know where the thread went but there where rater excessive reports about that trip around these very forums dateing back to early 2010 or late 2009 i think. Maybeh a mod can dig them out..it was a highly intresting read. ;)

The link to these post is in the page 1. The visit to the Grain elevator I meant. But as the level detail of some maps, they would have much more material from all locations of maps.
Also "dev blog" could be nice for watch how they work on weapons features, etc.
