Yes People I have released a new map for this lovely mod Storm Of Steel Description: Storm of Steel is huge map for Forgotten Hope - bf1942. The map takes place in Russia, July 1943 and is the opening of "Operation Citadel". This place of battle is the Orel province of Russia, july 5th 1943. It is the opening of Operation Citadel and the scene of the battle is near the town of Maloarkhangelsk. The German Wurttemburg Regiments of the 216th Division has blazed through the area but has now reached the massive defences the russians have set up to stop the agressors before they reach Kursk. The Soviet positions, containing six defensive belts, were strong and deep. In front of each belt of strong points are vast mine-fields averaging 5,000 mines per mile of front. To aid their breakthrough attempt, the Wurttemburgers are reinforced with assault guns and heavy tanks. In the morning hours of the 5th, the Germans began to rumble forward in a storm of steel... This map is a rural tankbattle map, allthough both sides also have airforce and plenty of transport vehicles. The map is also divided by a large river on which both teams can travel using River-boats. The map has 6 Control- points (flags) plus two uncapturable main-bases. This map uses a semi-push map gameplay system, which means that some flags are closed until certain other flags have been taken, here comes a brief layout how the system works. Flag 3 and 4 are open all time, these can be captured and recaptured as normal Bf1942 flags. Flag 5 and 6 are closed for BOTH teams until the AXIS capture flag 2. Flag 2 starts as Russian and can not be captured by the Axis until they capture flag 1. Flag 1 however, can not be re-captured by the Allies once they lose it. When the Axis captures flag1 all planes spawn for both teams and this also supplies the Axis with an additional Stug3G tank. This map features a vast minefield, marked on the minimap, these mines do not respawn once blown up, instead a small red flag is put up at each mine that has blown up, this makes it possible for the Axis to push holes in the field and travel more easier through that area.

Nice site, as for server, you know I do and will.:D
hslan.koelschHow a editor have you used to creat this map ?? I surch an than i will creat FH0.7 maps too, please help me!!
Not to scare you off or anything Koelsch, but for this map I used these programs:
Battlefield 1942 v1.61b Forgotten Hope 0.7 Battlecraft 2.1 Editor 42 Discreet's 3D StudioMax 7 DICE's Mod Development Toolkit 2.75 Adobes Photoshop CS2 Crimson Editor - textfile editor NVIDIAs Photoshop .dds plugin CoinCoins Samplemaker
Additional production and codning were also made by other members of the forgottenhonor mappingteam. For ex the ATmines have been tweaked and a few custom kits are added... lots of stuff basically pounded into this map..
Allthough, to make a simple map you can start by just using BattleCraft, and when you feel comfortablr with that you can start tweaking more indepth files in your maps...
Good luck! Please use this map on your hslan FH server! Server files are included in the pack.. /Cheers
