The Fate of Finland DLC

Postby CC_Susi » Sun 19 Jan 2020 00:39

Hello Eugen Systems

I heard that you are going to release Fate of Finland DLC. Sounds cool and im going to definitely buy it.
How ever im little bit woried, if you are aware of all the great information sources possible to make DLC as good as possible.

Because no country in the world have digitalized so much of old things as Finland.
Example here you can find all maps of Karelian Istumus from year 1939 digitalized.

Its basicly like google maps but from year 1939.

On attachment you can see roud cross of Portinhoikka center point of Tank Battle

Housing in Finland

Hope devs will notice this topic so i dont write for nothing.
How ever lets talk about finnish houses and difference from Original maps.

On announcement of DLC there was this gif.

How ever i believe that this doesnt reflect colors of houses in Karelia.
In Finland all the houses in villages on countryside were painted red with white details if painted.

Other way paint houses and specially "important" ones like town hall and railway station is light yellow with white or brown details.
These can be seen mainly on cities.

How ever many houses in Karelian were totally unpainted on countryside or in poor districts of cities.

Quite modern Viipuri is other thing. But you can find good photos from 1940 Viipuri from here.

How ever the bottomline is. Haven seen many old wooden blue houses in my life. So what i see in gif is more like 1950 Sweden.

Ok, so let speak about how finns build their yards on countryside since thats also quite different from what you can see in original Steel Division 2. I have once again attached map of Portinhoikka crossroads, since i know its going to be map in game.

So like you can see finnish house yards are separatet from each other. There is allways some cap beetween house yards.
And also yard consist from 2 to 6 different buildings.

Basicly agriculture was main profession at the time, so one yard have following buildings.
Home for family
Barn for cows, chickens and so on
Buildings where you can store enough hay for animals over the winter
Home for your old dad and mom since there wasnt elder care at the time.

Those buildings form kind of circle around yard and thats why we call it "pihapiiri" which directly means yardcircle.

Next thing is shape of houses as country side houses differ quite much from houses in original game.
Shape of houses is quite simple and used allmost in every house. House it self is long and narrow. It doesnt
usually have any wing or attachment expect porch. Porch can be closed or open. And there is usually one of them.
But big ones can have two. However if house have two porch these are on the same side of building.
