In the summer of 1942, As part of the operation known as Case Blue, Adolf Hitler ordered the German 6th army, under the command of Friedrich Paulas, and its associated Luftwaffe air units to secure a city on the Volga river, to tighten the Wehrmacht's grip on Soviet oil supplies coming from Baku, as well as to defend the northern flank of the remaining units of Army group south in their assault on the Caucasus. This city, Stalingrad (modern-day Volgograd), was defended by the forces of Vasily Chuikov. Chuikov, in accordance with Stalin's call for a no retreat order, was to hold Stalingrad at any cost, while reinforcements were moved westwards towards the front line. In a fierce battle amongst the ruins of the shelled out city, the Soviets managed to slow the advance of the German army, drawing out the battle for many months, until, in the dead of winter, a pincer movement by two Soviet fronts to the north and south of Stalingrad succeeded in surrounding the 6th army, prompting Paulas to surrender many weeks later.

In this, our newest map, we have created a large section of the city of Stalingrad, containing some of the epicenters of the fighting, including the Red Square of Stalingrad, the ferry docks, mamaev kurgan, and the stalingrad grain elevator. This map contains very detailed buildings, many of which actually existed, and models of Tanks and airplanes. All vehicles have their equivalents in actual war machines, and are accurate to the time and place.

A separate pack of WWII vehicles for you all to use will be released soon!

We hope you enjoy this latest creation from us, and be sure to stay tuned! More stuff is on the way!



Many thanks to Nati797 for the amazing renders!

Absolutely THE MOST amazeing map I have seen in my days on Planet Minecraft. The level of detail is unexplainable. The trailer itself is already over the hill. This certainly deserves respect from everyone

Amazing buildings and terrain! Could this possibly be an SG-map?
  • Cephyr
  • Level 67
  • High Grandmaster Architect
  • July 19, 2015, 8:53 am
Sadly, no. Although it would make for an interesting game, there are far too many enclosed spaces and obstacles for it to be a SG map
  • LouizZ

  • July 19, 2015, 11:00 pm
Oh I see
Maybe you could make a second version, wich would then have less obstacles and would be uplouded as SG map ;) Could turn out very nicely in my opinion! :3 I've played a lot on your wonderful map kikoshi islands and the "gameplay" on that map is fantastic! I would not mind a new map with similar gameplay. You seem to be good at making SG maps, which not only look good but are very nice to play on aswell.

Hello,
first off this map is amazing love it. second, im considering doing a world war II map either battle of the bulge or north africa. any tips on making tanks and other vehicles
Thanks Matt_O123

Well, seeing as the hardest parts of the tank to build are the treads, I would recommend that you look at the treads on our Tanks to generate some ideas. The turret and chassis kind of build themselves, so long as you make use of slabs and decoration blocks to make the build flow more easily. For vehicles in the battle of the bulge, the German Tanks would look a lot like the Tanks at Stalingrad, while North African models would be sand-colored, so maybe make those mostly from sandstone. I hope that this is helpful :)
