Hey Buck-- just one brand new map: Lebisey Woods. It's in there.
A couple of old GJS maps replaced with TLD maps, but otherwise the same maps. All maps are getting recoded (40% done) for consistency, to eliminate existing map LOS bugs, and match the new, modified GJS elements. Also, all new .btds. Most VLs will now only be accessible to infantry.

Right now there are 9 static bgs (occupying every beach map and then some). There may be more. The Allied challenge will be to punch through the static BGs as fast as possible and rush inland as fast as possible before the first potent German BGs arrive and counterattack/resist. It will now be just barely possible to reach Caen by the morning of June 7. (may be three turns per day). A skilled German player will not be able to stop the Allies on the beaches as was possible in GJS 4.4. Now it will be a matter of how far will the Allies get between June 6-7 before potent German BGs arrest progress?
Lots of dynamic, strategic features possible with LSA engine that were not possible before.

The 2 BG's per map will make a big difference in the game! Can't wait to be able to play the updated classic mod....
Any tips on converting old mods to LSA would be appreciated....
The inclusion of static BGs is one of my favorites and it translates well to GJS. Many of the changes from the GJS tLD thread still apply. Still making minor tweaks to stratlayer, fixing some glaring geographical errors in map arrangement, and adding a couple new battlegroups. Nearly done with all the interface graphics that had to change when ported into LSA.
No interesting tips off the top of my head, the big challenges to converting a mod to LSA boil down to forcepool data, screengadg and CCPix rearrangements, and a different approach to data with regards to large-caliber gun performance.

I remember from more than one years ago , TLD GJS mod was announced . I think that mod is more than be real is look like dream or making busy the close combat fans for never end waiting.
I did not understand why the TLD project did not finished and every things changed to making LSA mod !!! I am certain that another year shall be waiting for this one and then changing to another story.
I understand the challenges of mod making for this game , but suddenly change from TLD to LSA is not clear ! I think it shall be decided long times ago.
I hope to see this mod sometimes published and can be played !!
