Omaha Beach 1944

Author File Description
KingRoy1 This is my first map. It's about Omaha Beach. It's really cool because you get to see hundreds of troops on the beach at the same time. I even script an AI ally. I tried to balance this to make it, "one shot, one kill".

Try this map out. It's lots of fun, and somewhat realistic.

When playing, you might want to start out paused to plan your attack.

Do you guys have any comments on my map? please tell me what you think, but keep in mind, that this is not the finished map! I'm still working on it and some suggestions will help...

Playability: 3
From a game point of view, it was easy to win. From a realism point of view, it seemed good.

Balance: 3
Allied forces outnumber Germany greatly, but similar as said above about realism and game views.

Creativity: 4
D-Day is not an original idea but I like the way it is implemented here. For example, the adjusted ranges of all the units. The way the reinforcements arrive on the beach lining up 100s of troops. How the AI allied forces fight with you and attack on their own. The green AI was really neat how it circled the top left and came into the town the other direction. Not sure if it just played this way or the author setup a scrip for it.

Map Design: 3
This category was tough to rate considering a few things. About 65% of the map was very blank and bare. At the same time though, the fighting never took place in any of those areas. The area where the fighting takes place is done pretty good and much more detailed. For example, the town is setup nicely and German defenses are positioned well. Also the beach area is done well. Some more cliffs could add a touch to things.

Story/Instructions: 1
There wasn't anything here.

Additional Comments:
Some things I can think of for improvement... Give the German tank group in the northeast a scrip to attack into the town once allied troops enter it. Maybe have the initial wave of troops start out in landing craft in the sea. Once the beach is secured, reinforcements can arrive. In the end, overall not a bad download for some quick fun. Certainly has plently room for improvement which I say is a good thing.

Thanks for the low rating :)
Like I said before, it was my first map that i posted online, and yea, it wasn't focus on the entire map. i just wanted to do the beach. As for the story line, why a "1"??? What story is there to tell??? as of now, it's so obvious what the story is about!

additionally, this map was supposed to be a skirmish Game. I just HATE and cannot stand a scenario that takes me longer than 15 min to beat. I'm more like, "Cut the crap, just get to the gritty battles!". I wanted to focus in the Beach only, hence the Title.
