South Stalingrad map

Having my interest re-kindled in Stalingrad from Jason Mark's Angriff, I decided to do some more Stalingrad map work. Some of the recon photos are terrific for map makers !

This is the 1st of a one hex = 100 meters Stalingrad map (the scale I use for my microarmor rules). I started with South Stalingrad this time and will work my way North. This area covers from the Leather Factory to most of Minina south of Stalingrad.

As with any map that has to conform to a hex-grid and a rule set, some design considerations had to be taken into account:

1. I rotated the hex grid 90 degrees, so that the hex grain is left/right instead of up/down.

2. I tried to capture the feel of the terrain, using the images I had available, but obviously at 1 hex = 100 meters, it is not possible to include every road and building. All images are stylized- a factory hex is actually composed of many such buildings, etc.

3. For the Factories (which in my game are victory locations), I tried to make them stand out a little more. Obviously a wall (such as around the Leather Factory) that long is silly, but it adds to the look and feel of the map for game purposes.

As a side note, I found out that the scale I was using for my Stalingrad 250 (1 hex = 250 meters) is about 5% too small- not much of a difference, really, at that scale, but frustrating nonetheless. I'll keep that same scale and map size for the other parts of that map series (Central and South Stalingrad), but they are currently on hold at the moment.

Can anyone recommend the robust Network Monitoring utility for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central desktop management
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!

I'm the kind of guy who passions to seek revolutionary stuff. Right now I'm building my personalized photovoltaic panels. I'm managing it all alone without the help of my men. I'm utilizing the internet as the only way to acheive that. I saw a really brilliant website which explains how to contruct solar panels and wind generators. The place explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I'm not really sure about how precise the information given there is. If some experts over here who had xp with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the site it would be awesome and I'd highly treasure it, cause I extremely love [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. You people rock.
