How about getting started with map making for Close Combat? - This guy makes a map for Men of war series of games in 1min/10mins/100mins and achieves respectable results. - The same thing could be done with Photoshop or Gimp layers in order to make a CC-map - there are some map templates floating around, and textures too:) - Why not give it a try? : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XsTjs0itSM

Nothing special Just cut and past from original CC3 maps
Will put on line some maps during the week end
I am not on the level of the mapmakers we already see here CCS
Will not give names because for sure I will forget some of them

That sounds excellent Corsair. So refreshing to see some new maps for this game. I am sure the quality is more than good enough - I am sure looking forward to seeing them.
The Men of war 2 is on a Steam sale right now actually: The base game can be had for around 4 Euros!
It should be possible to make CC maps with it - or the graphical -exterior part of the map at least.  I am thinking lots of screenshots from top down and then use Photomerge function of Photoshop or some other program that can stitch photos together automatically. Polishing, Interior graphics, elevation and elements coding would be left to do of course.

I would advise you to get the Steam version, jusy because of access to the massive amount of mods in the Steam Workshop. I would say get the Men of war assault squad 2. I must add that I havent really played the game... I bought on sale for the editor..

Using the render "minimap" function in the editor with smaller maps will output a .PNG of the map in Ortograhic view to the main MOWAS2 folder.
This is a complete top down image and with smaller maps its resolution is high enough to use in a CC map!
Ground textures might need to be touched up or replaced and trees need to be removed too ofc.

You can get an interior render by placing a single soldier inside the 1-story houses and check" show interiors". - Placing soldiers around the map will "light" up the whole map image.
You can also get a heightmap from the editor making heightcoding in 5CC easy.

Well SL, its a good mapeditor, but it is very time consuming to get a decent map out of it. Those skilled in Photoshop or Gimp will produce a decent CC map in a much shorter time I think.

The last one for today
Those maps are in various stage of progress but almost all coded.
Need to create the RFM files in 5CC
I tried to incorporate the trees out of 5CC but do not know how to make it
Enjoy

easiest way is to clone out the existing shadows and add your own with 5CC

Dont you have to create and add a bunch of tree shadows and make a library to make that work? Or is there something usable already in 5CC?

In fact I am not talking about the tree shadows but the trees by themselves.
Is it possible to have the trees on the map by 5CC screenshot .......
On SL Winter War maps the trees were on the maps .......
