I'm actually doing a map for FH2, in the same idea of "Red Dawn" (by Imtheheadhunter). So it will be a big sea, with airfields on each sides, 8 fighters who can spawn 10 times (each). This map will not be beautiful, this is my first map. I just hope that people will have fun on it ...

I'm just looking for a name ... (Yes that's stupid ...) I wanted to call it "Malta", but there's already a map with this name ...

What do you think ?

That's an idea, thank you :)

Screenshots availables soon. I can take them now, but the map is a pre-pre-alpha version ...

Put bombers, targets and AA, ala battle of britain or bombing the reich, an objective map. Make the targets tanks or something, like in operation hyacinth.

Do you really think I can do that ? lol No, in the map we'll spawn directly in the planes, and we'll have only pilots kits. Maybe I'll put some AA turrets, but this is useless

how can you mod using the FH mod? or any other mod, i'm using Battlecraft1942 to make my maps, i also have the battlefield mod creation kit or something, but that i don't use.

I think that spending lots of time on a map makes it more worthwhile if you make it so people "feel" it... I dont think people would download a flat anonymous map with just planes... spice it up, make a nice terrain and some mountains or something, apply a real scenario (research) and players will get more interested in it...

Its a learning curve, roughly 500-1000 hours of studying, research and familirize yourself with applications and file-structure, its about learning an artwork, it takes time.. (compare with learning Photography, painting or making movies)

Sure you can, doesn't sound like a good idea though... I suggest strategical targets like Radars, bridges, factory, depo's, airfields etc.. Also make the ground-troops able to defend the targets and also counter-attack the origin of the assault, meaning sending troops to the attackers airfield, and make them able to defend that airfield... then you have a combined assault and counterattack joint operation objective mode map alot more attractive for players than "a dog-fight map"...

depends on what you want to achieve.... :)

Well, I'm not a good mapper, I'm not a good modder. This will be my first map, and I want it simple, but funny. I always dreamed of piloting a Spitfire or a Me109, in dogfights. I want to do that. If peoples don't download my map, that's not important. I will have fun on it, and those who downloaded it will perhaps have fun. Maybe, when I finish it, somebody would take it and make it better, I don't know There's only one problem. Actually, I'm working really hard for the school, and I haven't time to do the map.
