Well... this could change our planned scenario around somewhat!

We'll have to go and have a look at the site again.

I guess you could argue that this is what you get when there's no security on site at all... I'm amazed it wasn't done years ago...

is it burnt "to the ground" or are the walls still up, it may be a good backdrop for some photos,

as the germans we could say "heres one we torched earlier"

on a serious note i hope it dosent affect the game too much.

It wont affect the game design. maybe the mbience a little as i would have like a less destoryed building for some bits of the plot but it wil all be fine.

If you look at footage of oosterbeak and arnhem by day four very little hasnt been set on fire or caved in...

I'm hopingthe shell is still gamable and safe.

I doubt they'll let us in the shell...

I also suspect it'll be cordoned off with some rather unfortunate modern looking fencing.

We'll just have to see.

Hopefully it will still be there on the 22nd for a background for some photos - it will have to be demolished soonish as it is close to the railway line and it has been deemed as risk.
