This will be my final release of Aerial Combat. If there you are mapper/modder and are interested in adding single player support for this map and/or modifying the map slightly for inclusion in a tournament or mod, please let me know and I'll be happy to allow it.
Well here it is, the Final version of Aerial Combat, a carrier/island map for BF2. There are several things that I never got around to finishing, like working vehicle shadowmaps, and ambient sounds, but this version is a big improvement over the Beta. I've made it much more difficult to get the Kuan Ti, and spent a lot of time trying to balance the map so it's fun for both teams. Jet lovers might complain that there aren't enough Jets in 32 player (and none in 16 player), but there are 4 a side with 64 Players so that should keep em happy. This map should have something for everyone, even those who can't fly to save there life (you might want to know how to parachute though). I've had a lot of feedback about this map, and I really do appreciate it. I have tried to take everyone's comments and suggestions into account for this release, and I think the map will be better for it. If you find an obvious fault that needs fixing, email me at email@example.com
Thanks go out to:
- [BITS] Djnapkin for hosting all early Beta tests of this map.
- [BITS] Drinno for starting me down the road of a carrier vs carrier map.
- All members of [BITS] squad who helped test this map.
- Totalbf2.com for publicising the Beta 3.0 version (and hopefully this one).
- Everyone at the bf2editor.org Forums (Anyone who's used the editor knows that making a map from scratch without the forum, is like trying to fly a helicopter blindfolded)
