Recommended Posts

US paratroopers land off-target on 6 June 1944 near the village of Saint Jores. German fallschirmjäger are tasked with clearing them out of the village and opening the route north to Sainte-Mère-Église. This is an expansion and complete reworking of the original scenario of the same name. The map is based on modern 2D and 3D maps, as well as 1947 aerial surveys, and is as accurate as it was possible for me to make it. While the scenario is fictional, it is based on the historical situation - several sticks of US paratroopers did land near Saint Jores, and German fallschirmjägers were active in the area as well.For now this is H2H only; AI plans may be added at a later time. You will need the Market Garden module to play.

The text above is somewhat mangled; apparently the accents and umlauts didn't translate well into forum code. Here's the (hopefully) corrected version:

And as an early tease, this is currently in the works:

@ Bimmer, thanks for this update. I played the original, and plan to try this one soon.

@ Zenpmorph, I have Corel 4 (basically upgraded PaintShop Pro) and it has a function that allows you to make those kinds of 3D pics. Photoshop no doubt has it as well. It's neat to play around with.
