I've just been reading the BF:Vietnam interview at http://www.bfgamer.net/modules/freecontent/index.php?id=57 and noticed a very interesting question.

Mausen :

Given then the copyright and trademarks, would you allow a mod team to do this?, go ahead and say "We're creating this mod team now, our aim is to convert the Battlefield 1942 maps to the new game"?

A.J. Marini :

Yeah, I mean, copyrights and so and so forth, only come to play when you're talking about sales. If you plan to profit of it in some ways, we're going to have some objection to that. If you're just a fan, and want to convert it, do the work, I mean, we can't stop you from doing something that doesn't gain you any income, if people are profitting off of our work, ok, then we have to have some sort of say in that, to protect our interests. But if it's just enthusiasm, no reason.

So, it seems Dice won't have a problem with mods such as FH, BG, and XWW2 porting the required content from 42 to Vietnam, could also mean a BF42 mod for Vietnam with added features and such.

EXCEPT, that FH would have to cut a deal with EA, becuase they do infact sell .6 on a DVD, and im sure they make some profit off of it.

I'm pretty sure they're not making profits. they're selling it at a price that will make sure the costs are met.

Well if they don't have a problem with mods using stuff from Bf1942 in BF:V then I assume they wouldn't have a problem with mods using stuff from RTR or SWOWW2? Hello motorcycles!

What else have you expected?

Remember that Battlefield Galactic Conquest mod.

Don´t you think George Lucas would get very very angry if there is no license paid.

Well prolific games does not earn money with the mod (till now), so they needn´t buy any license.

non-leaning vespas are in BF:V

The vegetation system would be awsome for the maps, eurpoean and pacific.

I really do like to see FH in BF:V's engine, but we can't expect it anytime soon.
