Even more Normandy 2 screenshots showing off seasonal variation

Ugra Media have been busy on their section of the DCS World forums again and this time they are showing off seasonal variations on their work in progress DCS: Normandy 2 map. In addition to the summer time, the map also has spring and autumn seasons and they show this off to great effect with new screenshots and a couple of videos.

The seasons, they are a-changin’

Ugra Media have shown off plenty more screenshots in this latest update on their development thread on the DCS World forum. The thread shows off seasonal variations on both sides of the channel and the update is eager to point out that both France and England have been textured separately which means that spring, summer, and autumn will have unique visuals on both sides of the channel.

Here are just some of the screenshots that they have released showing both autumn and spring. And I’m going to make use of the fancy image compare feature to show off similar scenes.

Check out this coastal image as well.

And as seen from a slightly higher vantage point.

There’s also a couple of new videos that you should check out too which shows these seasonal scenes in motion.

Seeing this kind of seasonal variation is awesome. One of the things that I still appreciate about the somewhat old Caucasus map is that it does have support for changing seasons. Although that is harder to show off in the desert regions that have been covered recently, DCS: The Channel map suffers from a bit of a binary experience where its either winter or summer and the change over is quite dramatic between the two.

DCS: Normandy 2, on the other hand, gives a bit more of a graduated experience gradually going from spring to summer and then to autumn. No winter version of the map has been announced but Ugra do have a habit of going the extra mile (such as two expansions to DCS: Syria) and so they may ultimately do that too.

Normandy 2 does appear to be shaping up as the ultimate map for DCS WWII pilots. Its full impact on that scene is yet to come but it does look impressive.

Check out the Ugra Media development thread right here for the full information and even more screenshots.

      Yeah! Less vibrant than the summer ones. Looks right!

    I’ve been following this with growing interest. Ugra Media are doing a great job with this map development, keeping us informed and listening to the constructive comments from content creators and the community in general.

    In my experience, the greenness of the deciduous trees & grass kinda go hand in hand, so it’s a little incongruous to see green-ish grass & brown-ish trees.

    Nonetheless, REALLY looking forward this map.
