Your right, the game engine and the limited map sizes makes long ranges impractical from a tactical perspective. It doesn't fit the scale of the game, sadly.
But from a video making or custom scenario its still interesting.

For me the range is dependant on other factors, such as if the battlefield has been designed with the range in mind or if other mechanics are adapted to fit, like the AI engangement ranges etc. Vanilla worked well in its own way and worked for tactical perposes with the original limitations of the game. The MowAS versions increased ranges stressed out playablilty on some of the smaller maps when using anything more powerful than infantry.

A lot of things in the Movies don't make a whole lot of sense. Often things are changed or omitted that end up losing a great chunk of the character/detail/logic from the books & the things that are valued by many are left out. Leading them to be 'Peter Jackson's' LOTR & not Tolkiens.
I give these guys (devs) a whole lot of respect for setting the books & manuscripts of Tolkiens Arda first and walking a finer line. Especially as this isn't a movie but a rpg game where greater immersion and depth is greatly desired.
So let them create their project as they see fit. They are gracious & modest enough to recognise that views will differ on something so grand & engage with the community of enthusiasts of book & film to better the results.
Frankly I may not agree with every nut & acorn (so far I mostly do) but I'm not the one putting in the hours.
So for me; "The road goes ever on and on...
...And I must follow, if I can..."

Attacking with a mine is known as suicide. They are intended for defence. They are great at protecting areas like flanks. I love making the enemy fear them. Mines are great because you don't need many to make the foe think twice about a charge and its sometimes good to let them know you laid some.

I might have forgotten how the smoke fx spawns but if its an already crashed/distroyed vehicle at the start of the game, then each smoke fx is its own entity and can be located and deleted. I may have misremembered but thats how I think they can be prevented at the start of the game loading. If I'm way off, someone will correct me I'm sure.

Therefore the logic argument deconstructs at the point at which the "imagined" character in the "imagined" universe is controlled by "imagined" fictional supernatural constructs of nature as definded by the creator.
That is to say, by accepting the conclusion that it is a fictional concept and that the characters ability to act in a fashion resembling the living is entirely ficticious, one can conclude that the suggested logic is no longer applicable within the said context.

It shouldn't need any additional advantage, other than the fact it can probably engage from a greater range than most. So if its not in the line of sight of a unit or firing its weapon it will most likely be far back enough to stay hidden. I guess it will best be deployed in combined arms tactics (as with most units) so forward units can reveal targets for the Laser Distroyer to "snipe". Basicly the role of a typical tank hunter.

I love good quality sounds. It's sometimes lacking in games, often treated as a secondary feature. I'm glad its being taken seriously.
Great sound is a good way to raise the immersion level, I somewhat prefer it to shiny graphics.

One question; will the game have 3d sound and interact with the environment?

Top quality, top design, huge improvement and very elvish. I do love these Mithlond Nobles. My favorite that I have seen thus far.
Great job.

Ive been waiting an age for the Sdkfz7. Finally I can use the Sd.kfz.251 where it belongs. This is the proper workhorse.... well except for all the actual horses they used.

It's all very well saying this looks amazing. Which I can recognise and understand from an artistic and technological viewpoint. But with regards to 'realism' of the visuals this is far from accurate compared to 'real life' (despite peoples zealous fanatical reverence).

My point is about the game creators attempt to render an environment as close to reality as possible, an aim since the dawn of computer gaming. Yet the tendancy is to make 'stylistic' choices to hide differences or embellish visuals using certain graphical techniques.
In Battlefield 3 it seems they have gone overboard with high contrast and unnatural lighting (or atleast missed out important considerations).

There is a key difference between "photo realism" and "optical realism" its a massive mistake to follow "photo realism" in a computer game. Great for still images and dramatic movies but totally totally unrealistic for actual gameplay and at worst a hindrance (in a game like this).

No one seems to makes the distinction between the two and I note a great number of people are swept away by the strong contrasts in the lighting and I put forward that its due to the natural excitment to the dramatic effect it produces, just as a powerful highly contrasted black and white photo can be a strong and intense image. It should not be confused with the 'realism' of the average human eye, which adjusts to light conditions unlike battlefield 3 visuals.

Basicly in short, the lighting is a mess.

p.s. I have played the game.
It's not the only game to play this cheap gimmick trick , its dramatic, it looks like a movie, it probably sells.

Just tested your mission.
I'll provide feedback and opinion.
Firstly if this is your first attempt at a men of war map and mission, I can say you got some basic things right and others quite a bit wrong.
Firstly the good points:
It didn't crash during my play through.
It included environment and lighting.
It included objectives (although incomplete/lacking detail and explenation)
Objectives as apparently designed seemed to function and were achievable.

Lack of map detail
Lack of script detail i.e. things like clustered unit movements.
Lack of story
It lacked the infomation for objectives to explain task without guessing.
Setting/battle seemed random and confusingly ahistorical (russians vs germans alongside usa??)
Units under player control did not have their movement set to 'hold' by default.
Most of the scenario was conducted by the AI (not always a bad thing aslong as the player isn't left out).
Overall effort seems a little rushed, thats despite taking into account your statement of being amateur (we mostly all are around here), I would expect a little more 'finished product' than this before posting it out into the community, including play testing or getting friends to give feedback beforehand.
If this is your first attempt and your looking for lessons on how to improve, I recommend reading the forums at DMS and looking at other maps others have made to get tips. One good map for a beginner to look at is Bonus mission 3 Battle of Vernon. Its simple enough to learn the basics of how things can be done and you can modify it and practice changing things (it wont overwrite your game just save it as something new)
Best way to learn is to look at whats been done before and trial and error. Sadly I rate this one as mostly error but dont take it badly, it just needs quite bit more work. Making a great mission takes a huge amount of effort.

Im interested in the sky map and lighting settings, look really well done, lets hope the latest mow:as patch hasn't ruined the look, for me it messed up the contrast levels etc.
