I know this might sound strange, and I understand that you guys are more focused on what you have set up, but what about adding in the war in South Africa as well?


I reccomend watching til the end

Here is a map I made for the African camping. Please not that this is the only African thing done by the IE dev team.

The map is mainly just a test but is fully done (you only have to change the background and it would work pretty well) I'm still deciding whether or not to add it in the next update so people can try out this style of map.

Looks awesome but the medieval wall and outpost kinda puts it off.

The map looks pretty great  :D Just need a more liveliness to it, like making the dirt in the village look less like dirt (like adding in some sand here and their) and some more plant life. Although seeing a bunch of Hons and Brits wearing heavy gear in the hot, desert heat is gonna be weird to see.

Also in Europe we have people from Africa, you know? :D . Anyway, I think African units might be a cool addition to the mod. Perhaps some colonial regiments for France and Britain may make it into future patches, having fought on the western front alongside other national units.

The map took me an hour to make as it was only a quick test to see if open rocky ground would work well for the game. But I never got around to testing it. I could spend a bit more time to improve it and make a few swampy or more open ground maps in the future though if we end up adding the troops.

Yes! I forgot that there was fighting going on in Africa (as well in Asia to a lesser extend) but these hidden heroes should be shed some light.
I hate it when people pass me a cup by holding on to the rim of it...

TBH, if you really wanted to, you could argue that ww1 continued on in the newly formed Soviet Russia as many countries sent men and supplies to fight the soviets.

Yes true! The Russian Civil war saw many of the allies supporting the White movement, It would be interesting
