  I looked around in the latest update:

  More wind and water and light and clouds on Utah Beach.  The commander can spawn a recon vehicle AND he or infantry can ride in it but not drive it.

   It's also much easier to drive than a tank.  Here's the greyhound on hill 400:

  Nope.  I was driving the greyhound around on an empty server sight-seeing and taking photos.  These days the biggest messes I make are with the occasional grenade thrown into over a distant hedge.  Sometimes I think I hear a howl or two of pain and I guess it is the howls of the enemy since none of my side's markers are in that direction.

   That's just the usual US 76mm for Shermans (US Shermans got the 75, the 76 and the 105).  The screenshot exaggerates its length.

   You should get in and play this week-end!  There's a bazillaion noobs on for the free weekend!  If you do some supply work you will seem 1000 times more adept than the average!

  Purple Heart Lane -- and this bloody line of dead Elitetruppen is indeed in the ditch right next to the main road.  The screenshot is from a few weeks ago but Purple Heart Lane hasn't been changed and I was fighting on it last night and I even managed to hit a few of the enemy with shots from my trusty M1 rifle:

Nice screenshots!  I really should fire this game up again.  Haven't played since it came out last year.

  Yep, it is a fine continuation of the Red Orchestra -- Darkest Hour -- Post Scriptum Series.  If you've played the earlier versions of this particular line of WWII FPS games, it is definitely an incremental improvement and it is itself getting more interesting (if not necessarily more satisfying).  I think Purple Heart Lane is still my favorite map -- the grim atmosphere is pretty satisfying in itself.

Can't play it. Once I start.... I will NEVER be able to stop, too OCD foe these things.  :idiot2:
