STALINGRAD SUMMER retextured, retowned, revillaged





trailer: ...

Hi pilots!
One year of hard work is over and I can publish new repainted map.
When I decided for this map, I asked myself: What are typical events for Stalingrad/Volgograd landscape?
1.Disappearing and appearing rivers with many turnes, dry riverbads
2.Typical russian urbanism
3.Swamps and delta rivers
4.Kalach sands
5.Brights white sands on Volga´s and Don´s coasts
6.Few woods and trees generally

Dry riverbads are taken from Luftwaffe´s historical photos, but their location aren´t historical, because I had to use the same textutes for Kalach, Stalingrad, Abganerovo and so one. So-I had one idea: created landscape with atmosphere from this big area.
Airfields - Pitomnik - we have deafult airfield in area, where was Voroponovo, so I reconstructed Voroponovo airfield by historical photos and Pitomnik is next airfield done by BOS. We haven´t any air photo of Pitomnik, we know something about two concrete runways, radar and lighthouse - that´s all.
Stalingradski - little airfield near Mamayev kurgan - it has own texture
Karpovka airfield - Hans Ulrich Rudel wrote - there was open space airfield without any chance for masking and every hinterland and headquoters were under ground - so I did it this way.
And so one and so one.....
I created very soft BumpH files, so you can see this effect around noon, early morning it is only little.



Big thanks for everybody who helped me with historical events, dokumentation and location in WIP discussion!

Last thing: I´m not good creator of ed_01.tga map.
So I did something like beta version, could anybody make it? Thank you.
