Just curious, but why can't FH use RTR maps at all? All I am suggesting is placing FH objects on the RTR maps without any other significant changes. You should still be able to use the RTR statics and just leave the levels as they otherwise are. If I am not mistaken, I have seen both DC and BG42 do this with no backlash. I would love to see real Italian weapons in the hands of the Italian soldiers in say, Operation Husky, for example. You could have static Breda Machineguns instead of MG42's and the kit class load outs would be basically the same except for the use of Italian weapons ( Carcanos, Beretta pistol and SMG ). I wouldn't object to the use of German Potato Masher grenades, since modeling the Bomba a Mano would be more work. I fully realize everyone is working toward FH2 now and most of you guys figure it is pretty pointless to devote any time to FH 0.7, but I guess my general question is, that you COULD do that and not get in trouble from DICE for it, right? Just my 2 cents worth. Jing
If other mods realy didn't got any troubles after doing it then I guess it's okay. As for all other questions, you have anwsered them yourselve.:)
I fancy tweeking some maps. but its to late :(
I have been reading Gross Admiral Donitz's ( sorry, my computer keyboard has no umlaut ) posts on how to make FH maps, and I'm willing to take a crack at it. I'm wondering how an altered RTR map for FH0.7 would be received?
If I can get it to go, I'd like to be able to share it with others as long as noone objects or DICE doesn't go bananas and accuse me of piracy. If there is any interest out there, I'll go ahead and give it a try.
OFF THE SUBJECT ( HIJACKING MY OWN THREAD ) Incidentally, your splash screen with the Fokker G-1 'JachtKruiser' is awesome!
Not long ago, I read Bram Van der Stok's biography, "War Pilot of Orange", and was enthralled by his and his squadron mates accounts of going up against the Luftwaffe in their Fokker D-XXI fighters.
I'd love to see an early war map of the invasion of Holland with some good dogfights with these planes, but I fear that this little-known battle might be considered not significant enough to rate a map in FH2. Still if, my vote counts for anything, I'd be for it!
