i submited 2 maps... my 1st and 3rd map i ever made actually. lol i heard about contest 2 weeks before deadline. so only had time to revise them. they were originally made for vanilla. one is SP\coop and the other is multiplayer only. they are named "the farm" and "Battle For the Scheldt" if you want them, send me a pm. and i will arrange to send them to you, somehow.

my maps are available so if someone takes the helm of this project they have my support. There's been a lot fo talk about this sort of thing for a while and in fact BUGS reported that the FH homepage will be redone to include listings of custom maps. They also talked about putting out more fan mappacks as well without the contests. Whatever is decided if it looks like this will be an ongoing thing maybe a catchy name would be useful and then with each new pack just add the number. Examples: WaW FH mappack1, 2 Theatres of war mappack 1, 2 FH fanpack 1, 2

It would help clients and servers alike keep track.

Uhm.. might as well call it "Fan map pack a la 0.5".

Seriously, if your map didn't make it into official FH, then it's not good enough. That's all there is to it. No one supports unofficial packs (for steady use), and never will. Two reasons; questionable quality, and the ignorance of its existence, due to unprovided official support. And the reason for that is obvious.

I suggest re-touching or re-making your map, and then try and submitting it again. FH team members are experienced, and perfectionists. What may look awesome to you, may look mediocre, unfit to them. Just keep trying..
