Welcome to my biggest mod to date, Operation: Overlord. As a sort of 'sequel' to Scenario: Stalingrad it operates on pretty much the same concept. With lessons I learned from 'Stalingrad', I present to you this mod; Overlord.
This mod, like Scenario: Stalingrad, is unique in that it puts you in charge either the Allied Expeditionary Force or the Army Group B in Northern France between 1943 and 1945. The mod focuses solely on this region, with a map that is around 22x zoomed in from vanilla. It covers a wider area than my previous mods, while maintaining more or less the same level of detail.
In addition, the zoomed map means I have conffered some general changes to the way the game is played:
Other features of this mod include:
And lots more - discover for yourself!
In June of 1944, the Allies finally launch their long-awaited cross-channel invasion. Caught off-guard, the Germans quickly find themselves being pushed back by a better-trained and equipped force. Not to mention the stifling dominance in air and sea power the Allies possess. The Allied nations are here for a single purpose - rid Europe of the tyranny of Nazi occupation. And now, with their forces pouring into Northern France, that dream can now become a reality.
This operation is the culimation of months, if not years, of planning. With some of the finest minds across the Allied nations contributing, this invasion is perhaps the largest cross-channel ever seen in human history.
The Germans, on the other hand, have been faintly aware of these plans. It is true that they posses a numerical superiority. But with the requirement of protecting a coastline that stretches from Norway in the north to the French-Spanish border in the south, are they stretched too thin? Only time will tell with the coming of OPERATION: OVERLORD.
