I had heard about how Gatling guns were invented during the American Civil War: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gatling_gun . I had also heard that they usually were impractical, expensive, heavy, jammed, overheated, or something.
I was watching The History Channel and a tower in a prison in The American Wild West had a Gatling Gun to prevent prisoners from escaping. Some of them tried to escape over the wall or barbed wire. Then they fired the Gatling Gun and everybody stopped in their tracks. I had never heard of a second instance of a Gatling Gun being used a second time at that prison.
8 weeks is not enough time to finish a mod with extra coding. Maybe a year and 8 weeks might not be enough time.
I thought European involvement in World War II began in September 1939, the day after Hitler invaded Poland, or Austria-Hungary, or Czechoslovakia. Americans were already fighting The Japanese on isolated islands like Kisko and Attu before Pearl Harbor. Then Pearl Harbor happened in December 1941. I suppose that you're being technical and that you're saying American involvement in World War II was 1941-1945. In 1948, Israel became a country. I saw 24 Redemption, but I thought that it took place in Africa, not Israel.
We studied in History class what I thought was called The Tokyo-Rome-Berlin Treaty where Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito agreed to fight Americans. I'm an American and non-Japanese. My Dad's a pilot and knows about some of the planes used to fight Hirohito. I grew up 2 blocks away from a non-Japanese man that had a cannon in his front yard from The Pacific Theater. I was just a little child trick-or-treating at his house and too young to know about The War with Japan and Hirohito. Hirohito was literally worshipped as a what I would call a cult quasi-god. They thought that the first Japanese Emperor was the child of the sun goddess Amaterasu. I had heard that the Japanese never lost a war before World War II. So, I think that maybe it would be more interesting if you added in Japanese-themed levels. In Spear Resurrection, there's a Japanese boss that you fight and Japanese music is playing.
How detailed do you want the game to be? In the retail version of Unreal Tournament (1998 or 1999 version) there's a D-Day level on a beach: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-Day
When Hitler invaded Russia, it was the earliest and coldest Russian Winter in 250 years!!
It's almost unbelievable how many Germans and Russians died from fighting each other, from the cold, or from starving to death.
D-Day was in 1944, so you might want to have beach levels in the 1944 episode. Roosevelt died in April 1945. Mussolini and some other men were put on trial, dragged out into the street, shot, and hung upside down from telephone poles on April 28 or 29, 1945. On April 30, Hitler and his wife were surrounded by The Allies and committed suicide. I had heard that Anne Frank would have lived if the death camp was liberated a few days earlier. She died in May 1945. I don't know the name of the man who apparently took over for Hitler from April 30 to May 6, 1945. VE-Day (Victory in Europe Day) was May 6, 1945. The United States tested The Trinity atomic bomb near Los Alamos in June or July. Hiroshima (A Uranium bomb) Day was August 6. Nagasaki (A Plutonium bomb) Day was August 9. I'm confused as to whether Hirohito surrendered on August 10 or 15. I've heard that 100,000 people were killed in Europe in fights within 6 months of World War II ending in Europe. That's what I'll say about 1944 and 1945. Hirohito was apparently protected by a treaty if he surrendered. Hirohito died in 1988.
