When can we expect a campaign with western front maps. Is anyone working on it. there are plenty of WF maps.

A campaign server would do very well.

I disagree there are at least seven maps and probably more.

yes it would be a limited campaign but a campaign no less.

Each campaign could start off or end with Omaha. If the Germans win Omaha then they win the campaign. If the Allies are pushed back to Omaha then they must win Omaha again or lose the campaign.

As time goes by more maps could be added.

It does not work like that. In the start of the campaign must be balance. If Germans had advantage in campaign areas they must win first battle to win all campaign. Look at the HoS or RS campaign map. If one side loses all areas, the other wins.

No, likely just change Omaha on Dog Green or whatever other sector, so if Americans loses Omaha, they are moving on other sector and if all (maybe 5) sectors will be lost , Germans win the War, but we dont have so much maps for each sector, so we could just name each sector as in historical accuracy but play on Omaha. Yeah playing Omaha 5 times instead of playing on each other map on a different beach would be boring, but t is the best I could give.

I think a campaign server would get HotW up and running. As play increases the campaign would have maps added.

Might not be as good as it could be at first but in time it would be.

Possibly best to wait for a full mod release before looking at a campaign map.

You could replicate the Omaha beach map a few times and name them Dog Green etc.

Then for each map go in an make a bunch of changes to the terrain maybe move some cap zones about. Would that be quick and easy to do ?

Or just make it work like a normal campaign. Set the campaign start date to August 1944 and boom you can have it split evenly.

Very Possible, but you can't use the words "Quick and Easy" in the same paragraph as the SDK. :D

Good idea but then no Omaha.

The western front campaign doesn't have to balanced like RO2 or RS1
