    Furthermore we would like to make two other announcements. The revival of the Ortona '43 mod for CC5. As some of you might know PT commenced work on the Ortona '43 mod years ago. He shared images of his beautifully drawn maps with us as far back as 2005 and has kept us wanting to play this mod since. However there had not been any news about its progress for years. Several months before the Scheldt mod was finished Buck Compton contacted PT about the status of the mod. When it turned out that real life obligations would not allow PT to finish the mod we proposed to finish it for him and he agreed. Nearly all maps had been drawn (one map has been done by Buck) so that most of the work will be in coding, stratmap, the roof files and data. We expect to finish it this year.

    At the same time we have commenced another project, a mod for Close Combat The Longest Day. Thinking about which theatre of operations would be interesting for a mod we realized that there were hardly any mods dealing with battles on German soil. We again looked close to home and went for a Battle of the Rhineland mod. More specifically operations Blockbuster, Veritable and Grenade. Given the size and shape of the area we decided that the CC TLD stratmap was what we needed. We have a firm idea of what this mod should look like but have not made any definite decisions about which areas to include. This is definitely going to be a 64-map mod with a variety of nations and units. ETA: ask again in 3 years!

    Cheers, Buck_Compton and Pete
