ToolBox and I are announcing the development of a new map, set in the deep jungles of Guadalcanal. The Americans are closing in on the Japanese strongpoint within the hills, but they must defend what they took during the previous day's fighting. The Japanese stage a last ditch midnight counterattack, hoping to overrun and conquer.
This map is a remake of the middle third of Guadalcanal that includes...tunnel complexes and a dense jungle that separates the two forces. We are also trying to incorporate a conquest-capture the flag hybrid style of play, either in this map or in others. Watch out for screenshots!
Oh this is gonna be the 1337 map that we talked about. With a new game mod. If we can fully pull it off like we talked about earlier, it will change modding. And I'm not just trying to hype it up, it is original and it brings new elements to BF42 (in general) and will be a change up from boring Conquest. This map will (if I'm correct) feature a lot of close combat and will be very quick paced and intense. The tunnels will make it combat for small areas with little to no camping. While the jungle area will be dense making it easier to hide and making it, if I dare say, a bit scary and intense. *edit* I might be totally wrong, because we talked about two map ideas and I might be mixing both of them up, so if I'm wrong TELL ME!*

sound cool hope all is going well :)
Yeah it will be good, I know it will because it just sounds so 1337. We haven't started the map making (but that is from wht I know which is about 12 hour old information, so I might be behind.) The coding will be tricky and me and Dime have talked about what we can do to make this new game mode work.
by 1337 do you mean jeeps packed full of explosives
No, if you would of read what I had said fully. As in more than one sentence you would know I was talking about the map.
sorry but i have a short attention span that........ooooooh a paper clip........:uhh
Dime, I had a good idea for this map, I'll IM you the new idea. I think it is pretty good.
what was to idea. and what are the new elements you talked about earlier
I don't know if I can, at this time, discuss what we are adding. Dime can, but I can't.
