Intro: short but

Story:
June 6, 1944 - Omaha Beach: D-Day

The Allies come to fight against the Nazis in the Normandy.
You are a soldier on his way out of the boat to the beach.
The Nazis shoot at You very sharp. Try to deactivate the 2 Towers.


Gameplay:
Action map! Many speed parts with jumps. Some may be lucky but with some practise u can do most with skill.
The way of driving is not very evolutionary, although i added some new challenges.
The exterior area is full of action.The interior part is more calm.

Technical:
Blocks: ~5.800
Mixes: ~500-1000
Building time: ~60-80 hours
Mediatracker-Timelines: 153
Canon Ghosts: ~20

The mod: Omaha-Beach.zip
Its my first mod. I used as basic the Asphalt Tango mod and changed the textures. Just the sky i liked and kept it.
Feel free to modificate the mod, i think there are some very nice textures like rust, concrete, wood and stones in it.
It was not especially made for the map, but it fitted very nice.
Omaha-Beach.zip ~ 14MB

The ambience:
Although the map plays in 1944 and its the war between the Allies and the Nazis, I tried to keep the signs and symbols very similar but I didn´t want to overdo it. Cos we play Trackmania and no war game. But a little environment had to be for the authenticy and the feeling.
Pesonal note: I dont like what happened in that time, so plz don´t get me wrong with that scenario!! Its just a story, nothing more!

Personal experiences:
As every Story-RPG I started with the idea: D-Day/Omaha Beach.
Cos of the scenery I needed:
- much water
- high towers

So I started at the very bottom of the map (failure #1).
I used every space of stadium (failure #2)
I used the whole capacity of the stadium.
But it got very hard to work at the edges of the stadium and even the work with the dirt in the water was very difficult.
If I would satrt again, I would start at the heigth of 2 and put the dirt and the water up. And I would also leave at least one block space around the map.

I did 47 perfect fitting ghosts (for the flying explosives) and implemented them in the finished map. I did the MT work, sounds and so on.
Challenge Editor didn´t work anymore with my map, cos it had now the size of 645KB (!!) (Challenge Editor just works with maps about 100KB i guess)...But okay i was finished with the map anyway we tried first betatest with ghosts+MT on the test server:

Map added: Error: Maximum Tracksize 256KB
Oh no! I had 645 KB! Okay i checked aseco and changed the max. tracksize to 1024KB...

Map added (it worked)...Skipped challenge: Nothing...the next but one was loaded. But not Omaha Beach...

I was checking all the used files and found out: One single ghost is about 10-17KB....and i had almost 50 of them...

Okay I was doing almost the whole MT-work again with less ghosts, about 20. Now the map has a size of 250.501 Bytes. (256kb max. ).

Thanks to beta-testers:

Another great track of yours. You really managed to create an intense "battlefield-like" atmosphere with all the great MT work. And that giant german shepherd dog suddenly appearing in front of me was quite a shock !
There's also lots of nice (and hard) challenges, too.
