Im pretty bid on darkest hour. Are any of you guys into it? Im excited about Rising Storm, but IMO, there is nothing quite like going up against the nazi axis with the thompson and good ole BAR. Do you guys think we can at some point look forward to a "Darkest hour 2" if you will... with the RO2 engine? Pretty much like rising storm but fighting against Nazis in Normany? I sure wish that TWI will one day give us a realistic eastern front game jsut like Ro2.

I'm pretty sure the DH team was making a RO2 version.
I'd really like to see a japan Vs china/Russia mod though, it's the only ww2 front i haven't seen yet.

The axis stuff is done via RO2, and the allies stuff is done via RS. It should not be a very big effort to make custom maps or if really needed a mod for the western front. It could just go with the RS/RO2 "style" and only create maps and static meshes. I would love it, as diversity is great =).

I believe DH2 plans on doing a larger mod than DH. I have HEARD (not confirmed) that they are looking into having DH2 cover the Italian, North African, AND Western European campaigns.

It should say Western Front for the US and at this point, I'm sure only the DH Devs and maybe a few others have an idea on which direction they want to go with their next project. A mod for RO2?... A mod for another game?... or a stand alone project? I don't know.

The DH team did a great job with the Darkest Hour mod, although I will be honest and say that at this point for me, the western front in WW2 games is sorta boring and cliche thanks to all the other 'psuedo' ww2 games out there.

I am really, really sick of Normandy and D-Day. I like DH because of some servers and some cool features, but I can't stand the front it portrays anymore and I try to ignore that. I really hope they make some maps in Italy in DH2.

I personally would not mind another DH mod. Although I would like to see more urban late-war battles. Maybe even a last-week map taking place in Czechoslovakia :)

If I could take my pick of a mod to take "DH2"s place, it would probably be something like the Kurland campaign. There were some pretty crazy battles there until the end of the war. Mass slaughter, unfortunately, though :(

I only like DH because its like the continuation of ROOST, I really dont care about the US army, and anyway its pretty old, used and too "mainstream" IMO.

I agree with defining it "mainstream", even if i enjoyed (and i still play) DH. I will also play RS for sure :D

Anyway, i'm more interested, for example, in the French front in 1940 :)

Don't you mean Western Front? It's traditional to refer to the Soviet-German conflict as the Eastern Front and the British/French/Polish/Canadian/American-German conflict as the Western Front. Apart from that I'm sick of D-Day and Merricuh singlehandedly winning the war so I'm happy with the Pacific and the Eastern Front.
