In other news, purequaternion, the sun will only reach zenith within the tropics (That's kinda the definition of the tropics) Sooooo what you're saying is a little off.

I personally had assumed it was russian tundra not american northwest, that would put it at closer to 60 degrees than 45. Though my second guess would actually be the alps (which also lie at 45). I think the reason for my assumption it was soviet alps is the timing of the introduction, the Heavy update. My mind formed an obvious link.

As far as the actual location goes, we can only say it's below 47 degrees latitude so american Northwest and actual Alps works great provided it's midsummer.

Someone should email Dhabih Eng and ask. (He is the artist responsible for the skybox in question I believe).

Okay.

EDIT: didn't know the guys email, so I emailed Eric Smith, and politely asked him to forward the email to the artist or designer of the map.

If he didn't know, I told him to disregard the email.

Personally i'm not sure whether that much thought went into the skybox, but i'll be pleasently impressed if there had been.

The alpine theme is based on Northern California, Oregon and Washington.

I've been driving down from Portland on my way to San Francisco and it's incredible how much reference there is out here.

The Alps would be more European.

Care to provide examples? I can't see anything in lumberyard that wouldn't have fitted in just fine when I visited the Alps a few years back.

Good call, because no one else on a site devoted to making maps for a war themed hat simulator, wherein they tirelessly nitpick texture alignment or prop selection, is a nerd. Nope. Just the guys figuring out what time of day is depicted in a skybox.
