We have prepared a poll, taking in many bug reports and wish-list items that relate to the Normandy map. The plan is to collect “votes” from the SoW player base regarding their priority changes. We will then send a list of the top 10 voted items to ED.
You can submit 5 items in your top 5. More detail about each item is provided below the poll.

Remove large permanent hangars and brick structures from Allied Landing Grounds (St. Pierre du Mont, St Croix, Longues sur mer, Beuzeville). this is based on aerial photos which do the rounds on the SoW discord which show the absence of structures at least early on in the invasion. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c0/Saint-Pierre-du-Mont_Airfield.jpg

Add the St. Lo to Periers to Lessay road, which is missing from the map. This key road was the "start line" for Operation Cobra. https://www.b24.net/StLoPeriers.htm
Fix the railways around Rouen and the Seine so that they show in the mission editor when zoomed out. No reference for this, but when you zoom out in the mission editor, the railway network in the west remains visible. However the railways along the Siene river disappear.
Change the hard-coded minimum temperature down from 10 degrees to around 5 degrees. This means that early morning missions can be made with more sensible temperatures. https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/221009-hard-coded-minimum-tempreature-of-10c-and-no-snow/?tab=comments#comment-4106307

Guard towers and chain link fencing should be removed from the allied ALGs (at least St. Pierre du Mont, St Croix, Longues sur mer, Beuzeville) . This was raised on the forums within this thread: https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/160689-normandy-map-inaccuracies/
Anything that can be done to extend the detailed areas of the map, in any direction. This is a less specific request to generally expand the map's detailed areas. This is most obvious in the south-west, the east, and in England.
Implement the same coastline tech as used on Syria / Marianas maps. No reference.
Expend the map limits to the south to include Rennes and the airfield there. This would allow for the primary active LW airfield that was used during and after the invasion in this area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rennes%E2%80%93Saint-Jacques_Airport
Add missing town names to moderate sized urban areas in XV71, XV70, XU78 and XU38. See the mission editor/ map. These towns are obvious, but not named.
