Episode 015 is here, with bells, whistles, and maps!

Now, we’re bit late with this and there’s a reason… we needed another 24 hours to integrate our newest addition to our collaborations. We promised you better maps when we reach $ 10,000 in pledges, which we did this week… so here we are!

Meet Eastory, master of military map animations and wizard pf precision. Eastory is already creating some of the most precise, best researched, and most detailed battle maps online on his own channel.

Together we will now gradually take that to the next level by adding even more graphic coolness, spiced with the unmistakable TimeGhost history pizzaz. Also - we want to support Eastory to increase his own output, so as the war proceeds we hope that we can help him do even more detailed and longer renditions of WW2 battles, maybe even entire campaigns on his channel - which would be somewhat out of our scope. In summary and other words: thanks to y’all here, and your amazing contribution going forward the TimeGhost HQ now has a cartography department!

I love the new maps, glad we made it to 10,000 (don’t know if that’s Euros or USD). Are the maps from the period ?


Congratulations on this achievement and milestone in your progress! The sky is the limit :smiley:


Yes, it’s US Army staff maps in scale 1:1,000,000 from WWII - as you can see in some places we have to stitch them - we’re working on getting the stitches more seamless.


Undeniable Rules For World War II

Nº 2
Do not invade Finland. While you may win, you will forever be remembered for stupidly invading Finland. They are armed with winter, Finland, exploding trees, and sissu. Go pick on someone easier, like the USA.

In all seriousness, awesome work as always Indy, Spartacus, Astrid, and all the unsung heroes in the background helping to make these videos are reality.


I believe if you leave them stitched as they are, it will retain a realistic face…

“Brilliant” plan to improve maps :smiley:
