We've today played a Spring:1944 3v3 on it and it felt fine, if not a bit too porcy at the sides. Access to the lower left hill and upper centre one also proved too steep for vehicles to traverse. Nice map!

I guess S44 has different veh movedefs to *A, in that case? (Also, not sure which hills you mean.)

I like it, if different unit types are required on a map.

I wonder how it would be to play its center (plus the connecting north+south arms) flooded.

These cliffs are too bright when they are inside LOS.

The metal in the center could be improved as it is currently just a uniformly distributed spread of spots. There are no mex spot textures so I could mess with this myself.

I won't add metal spot textures, it doesn't seem appropriate for a snow map (moreover - many games automatically show metal spots in f4 mode when placing startspots/mexes, and others don't use metal spots at all).

I might change the lighting on the slopes, but ofc how it looks depends a bit on your games LOS colours, whether using bloomshader, etc. In fact I dim my screen and remove blue light, because its easier on my eyes (using f.lux), so it probably looks darker for me!

Ah now I see what you mean - for *A, the ramps up and down from those two hills, and also two other ramps up from the back bases in TL/BR, are not veh passable. So it seems pretty similar.

Pretty, I'm tempted to add detail specular splatting just to see moar snow maps produced.

Two requests:

1) remake Nuclear Winter in this style
2) if you do, increase shadow density by 0.1 or so (like on Amarante, they're barely visible at 0.05)

(Slightly veering offtopic) @Kloot: Why not just splat everything: diffuse, specular, normals, emission, etc. ? Splat materials

Two requests:

Will do. If you would like to try adding DNTS you are welcome (happy to provide tmd source files or normal maps etc if helpful).
