Fulda Gap revisited

Recommended Posts

I've been working on a re-visit of the Fulda gap map, similar to what I did with the wolfsburg map. I think I made the original Fulda gap map(I can't remember). It strikes me though that it may be in the wrong place. It seems that east Germany occupies about half the map. So I was thinking about moving it (see attachment).

The Yellow black square is the existing map. The hot pink and black line is the former East west German border. (you can see the location of the Hunfeld map in there too). The yellow dot-dash square is where I was thinking of moving it to.

I thought I would run it past people here to see what the general consensus is.

How about this:

The "yellow dot dash" would seem a better fit (perhaps expanded a bit to the West to include say LICH to cover the Northern Pincer option)?

I can't really expand it. Its 80x80km there which to me is the largest manageable map.

The wiki link you put in is what I was basing the new area on.

Ah well if the "yellow dot dash" is the maximum size then I'd say go with that (unless people want to model a NATO counter strike - in which case they can use the current/original one).

My vote is go for it. I'm assuming that the roads, rivers, streams, towns, villages will be on the map or is this just a hgt map and we will need to add to it?

He is also the Steel Beasts Political Correctness Officer, monitoring SB Teamspeak communications to ensure no-one uses misogynist, racist, irreverrent or homophobic language. Swearing is also frowned upon. ;)

Do I smell something?

Smells like Male Cow Pooh.

That may well be his role, but it then raises a concern that he has to spend so much time over at UK Armour in the "course of his duties". :o

Dark is a singular force behind many of the improvements you see (and will see) behind SB.

Assigning his remarks to a category best-left to actual trolls is impolite, and inaccurate.

Troll elsewhere.

Tony, for my money I would love to see a FG map.

Lotsa campaign possibilities.

P.S. Nihil illegetimi carborundum; or something like that.

P.P.S. I still need a Sevastapol map for Sons of Lenin.

Thanks Shot but you overplay my part. I'm just one of the cogs in the machine.

This map is still on my to-do list but I've been too busy with other things to dedicate time to it. I was also waiting to find out what Eisen's problem with it is. I have the data most of the way prepared for this I also have a Normandy map in the planning for which I have over 400,000 building shapes!!!.

So... don´t have to start another thread for this.

For those who missed the announcement of mine at SB.org...

It´s planned to release a more detailed and bigger Fulda-Gap map with about 40x40km after testing it with SB 3.0

There will also be 4 new themes for the map (woodland, autumn, late autumn and winter)

New scenarios from Cold War period or manouvers taking place in this are are welcome then

And in order to wet your pants... a few impressions

Thanks for posting here as well (not all of us are members there as well). :)

BTW no pictures (even though I say some code when I quoted your post). :(
