Hey Capt.Com,
... I live here in the south, I could always replace my flag with a Confederate Reble flag! [devilishgrin] And cause a lot of debate that way! [lol]


Hi Andy [wave] you could be sure to have a pretty big debate! lolll... This was an old post but I think it's a good thing that someone post on it ( I don't need to bump it loll ) because I think that what I wrote as suggestions was and are importants. Not only for the Swasticas but also for map's names and the most important of it, the readme.txt file.

Like I said in the original post, mappers can look at Bismarck(MTL) to see what RakeKniven did to replce the originals glags and signs. This is really good and the design and colors are kept.

edit: Just saw it [drink] Thanks Peter!

The Swasticas:

This is the Nazi Flag ( SS ), and the Swastikas is forbidden in Germany. Activision and many others make special version for our german friends, without Swastikas. They are a lot of players too. So if you want your maps played all over the world, please think about putting something else to replace that sign and/or flag. Look at RaveKniven's Bismarck GE version. It will gives you some idea of replacement.


For some strange reason, the German Government banned the design. Now, I say "For some strange reason" because, unknown to a lot of people, but the Swastica was never created by the Nazis... It wasn't even created by a German. Some of the earliest Swastica designs were descovery on Shields used by Skirmish Infantry on the Italian border dating back to the Bronze age.

The Swastica is used in the Hindu religion as well with a dot in each of the four sections (I think this represents the 4 sessions or Life or something similar... Unsure though).

It was used in the Norse religion, both styles, (Clockwise and Counter-Clockwise) as the Moon and Sun symbols. In Ireland, a Laundry company was called Swastica's Laundrumat.

Even in the USA, Native American such as the Apache used the Swastica in their decorational patterns, but due to the trouble in Europe, they gathered together and signed a treaty to never use the symbol again as it was being used as a symbol of evil.

For one group of peoples greed and insane lust for power, a simple design consisting of eight (8) small lines, is now banned throughout an entire nation and is frowned upon by the world...

Good post Capt.Com. Some interesting points made. A definate "Need-to-Read" for mappers.

For as far I know, a swastika is a Hindu symbol for Reincarnation. Hitler used the symbol just because it's a strong symbol, and because he thought that Germans were reincarnations of an old race that conquered some land near India..

Greets,

I think that it was put at part of a treaty at the end of the war. Which was made by the allies, so we said that there not aloud any swastica's.

but think was my mum that told me that so.....

I can definitely see why these symbols of hate are legislated against and I sincerely hope that any ******s idiotic enough to be goosestepping and doing the Nazi salute while they're enjoying their bratwurst and bier at the World Cup are slapped up sharp and deported back whence they came.

But surely banning the use of swastikas in what is supposed to be a historical reenactment is taking it too far? Do they blur the Nazi symbols in historical footage? Give Hitler a Groucho Marx moustache? Put a wig on Himmler? If we erase these things too much we are in danger of forgetting the power they had.

Just my tuppeny's worth.
