Fields of Battle,

It's June 6th, D-day! This day also marks the 14th anniversary of the D-day mod. To celebrate I've created map sized screenshots of five new maps that will be included in D-day's next release, along with information about other maps in development.



Axis:

A four player tournament style map set in an urban harbour shaped like a swastika. This map served as a test bed for the new sets of urban cliffs & features multi-levelled areas & tunnels. Note: The use of a swastika layout might be somewhat controversial, however the shape creates a balanced yet interesting design & is currently my favourite map to play on.       
 

Allied:

A five player map in the shape of the Allied star & circle.

Mountain Guns: 6 player

Mountain Guns is a remake of my favourite C&C Generals map of the same name. This map served as a test bed for the new sets of rock cliffs & features multi-layers cliff faces. Note: The road & bridge graphics will be replaced in the near future.


River Valley: 6 player

A long six player map featuring a winding river through a valley. It also features a train line weaving in and out of the mountains along the edge of the map.


Island Roulette: 8 player

An extremely large eight player map of a circular island with separate areas for each player connected to a central mountain.  


I have several other maps in various stages of Development for D-day...

No Man's Land:
A World War 1 themed map with a large network of trenches, that players can occupy & fight over.

Train Duel: (wip name)
A two player map featuring buildable armoured trains & two loops of track that run parallel to each other in the center of the map.

World War:
A large map based on the world map.

Corregidor:
A large island map based on the US base on Corregidor in the Philippines.

Paris:
A large map of the French capitol, featuring the Eiffel tower at the center.

Washington DC:
Large map of the US capitol, featuring many famous landmarks & monuments.

Soviet:
Counterpart to the Axis & Allied maps. I haven't decided on an exact layout yet, but this will be the first snow map in D-day.


Lastly I would like to point out that all of these maps are subject to change. Some of the graphics will be replaced in the near future & new terrain that is currently in development will be added. So you can expect the maps to have more details when they are included in the next release.

Girls und Panzer units,

The tanks of Ooarai Girls High School storm into D-day with a new set of units from the hit anime series Girls und Panzer. These rare units can only be obtained by collecting the bonus crates that randomly appear on the battlefield. So hunt them down & take out your enemies in style!

Japanese GUI and buildings,

The Japanese are back with a new sidebar and several new buildings, which when built give you access to new superweapons. Also in this screenshot is a new style of cameo, which replaces the monochromatic sepia coloured cameos previously used with full colour renders. Lastly this was taken on a new map that I will be posting more about in the coming weeks, along with several others.

Jap_bark.jpg
This is a new more historically correct version of the barracks, based on a structure built by the Japanese on Saipan.


Jap_sru.jpg
The Special Research Unit is a chemical weapons lab that gives you the ability to build chemical spreading tanks and use the Contaminate superweapon. Which releases a large gas cloud that will slowly damage any units or buildings within it's area.

Note: I was reluctant to add this building/support weapon due to the sensitive nature of Japan's use and research of chemical/biological weapons. Because of the sensitive nature tho, Japan's use of such weapons during the war isn't widely known. I thought this might be a good way to raise awareness and possibly inspire players to research about it themselves.


Jap_sau.jpg
The Special Attack Unit gives you the ability to build kamikaze units, as well as accesses to the MXY7 Ohka superweapon, a specialised piloted rocket equipped with a large warhead.   
   

Jap_joc.jpg
The Joint Operations Centre Is used by the post-war Japanese Self Defence Force sub-faction to coordinate with their American allies and call in B-47 Stratojet airstrikes on enemy targets.

Note: The JSDF as it's name implies is a defensive force and as such doesn't have any large or long range offensive weaponry. They instead rely upon their American allies to support them if they enter into a war.

Eiffel Tower,

Continuing on with French theme from the last news post. I've started work on a new skirmish map of Paris, at it's center is the world famous Eiffel Tower.

The map is still a work in progress & I haven't started on the north-west side of the river Seine, which will feature the equally as big Palais de Chaillot.
