    A map by {SoH} -=Diamondback=-

    Thank you for downloading the map!

    Context: "Strasbourg is a french town close to the German border. Annexed by them in 1870, then by the French in 1918 and then again by the German in 1940.
    On 1 March 1941, after a victory by the Free French Forces against Italian in Libya, the soldiers took the oath of Kufra: «Swear not to lay down arms until our colors, our beautiful colors, float on the Strasbourg Cathedral».
    On 23 November 1944, Leclerc and the French 2nd Armoured Division liberated Strasbourg and raised the french flag over the Cathedral."

    |OVERVIEW|
    ==========

    The map has been designed for Conquest game play only. This is the final version of the map. I do not plan on editing it again, at least not client side, meaning any modification will be added server-side.

    The map opposes the British Army vs the German Army in the French border town of Strasbourg. Each side has an uncappable base, and an advanced base in the city of Strasbourg itself at map start.
    There are four cappable control points or flags on the map. Holding 3 of the 4 control points ensures enemy ticket bleed. The city flags are, from South to North:

    Hotel - This flag is held by the British Army at map start
    East_Bridge - This flag is neutral at map start
    West_bridge - This flag is neutral at map start
    Strasbourg_Cathedral - This flag is held by the German Army at map start

    Ticket values are 1:1, meaning both sides start with an equal amount of tickets.

    |ARMAMENT AND WEAPONS|
    ======================

    The original idea of the map was to make it a tank/APC/jeep map only, similar to Aberdeen or Battle of the Bulge. A plane was added in the Allied main, but it can easily be removed server-side to make the map tanks only.

    On a flag by flag basis, here are the different vehicles and weapons that spawn:

    Allied_Main_Base:

    1) Vehicles
    - 1x Sherman
    - 1x Sexton
    - 1x Spitfire
    - 2x Jeeps

    2) Static defences:
    - 2x Stationary_Browning
    - 1x Pak40

    Hotel:

    - 1x Sherman/PanzerIV

    2) Static defences:

    3) Hand weapons:

    East_Bridge:

    - No vehicles, static defences or hand weapons

    West_Bridge:

    Note:
    AI + Terrain and Object Lightmapping has not been done, since it would add another 25-30 MB to the file size. I can generate the shadow work for the map if some people want it though. Still looking for someone to do the AI.
