Im so tired of games (or mods) that dont have realistic flags or uniforms. Like the german flag in FH2 why do it have to be a unrealastic flag instead of a real swastika flag (im not a nazi). Or the uniforms, in FH 1 the uniforms in normandy maps where all the same (except 1 or 2 maps) fieldgray wehrmacht. Most of the german troops in Normandie had some kind of camouflage (splinter, oak or pea) and there were Waffen SS divisions in Nomandie (Liebstandarte, Hitlerjugend, Das Reich and 17th SS panzergrenadier division) of which all had specific insignia. I would also like to se that the commander in the teams have a specific uniform (the british could have a Captain, the germans a Hauptmann or Hauptsturmfuhrer if it was SS and the americans a Captain). So please FH dev team pimp the mod :)

Man use the Search Function PLEASE! This has been discussed at least every other month and there are various good reasons to keep legally questionable stuff out of a game/mod.

Ah well... */me calls all the others in the forum*

Because swastikas in games are banned in Germany. Period. And FH2 is realistic enough, it doesn't really matter a lot whether you have a swastika on your flag or not. And I'm pretty sure we will have the correct uniforms, like in that FH1-map - american-german tank combat map, with that village in the middle, Hill-XXX or something, where the german team had camo uniforms either.

EDIT: *reaches a zippo to the following poster*

The reason the flags are different than they were in RL, is if i'm not wrong, so German players can play this aswell. Nazi symbols are no longer allowed in Germany, this symbol for example: CWswastika.png If these were added, I guess this mod would be banned from Germany. EDIT: Meh, Josef posted before me, buy now you know why.

German and Austrian laws prohibit the use of symbols of "criminal organisations" in video-games. Banned symbols are the swastika, the Sig-runes etc. That´s why FH2 doesn´t feature them....(although it´s allowed to show these symbols in films because films are considered to be art...video games aren´t considered as art..)

And I thought this was a well known fact. Oh and far from all troops had camouflage. The better divisions where wearing camo. Like the ones on the Atlantik wall those where mostly Osttruppen, poorly equipped units. The basic uniform for the wehrmacht was still Feldgrau. Most soldiers in units like, for example, the 130. Panzer Lehr would have splinter pattern overtrousers, camouflaged smocks or painted helmets in the Normandy colors. the SS divisions would have their own camouflage as you already mentioned. But the uniform was mostly 50/50 for the Wehrmacht soldier. Feldgrau and camo smocks. The Osttruppen where just wearing Feldgrau AFAIK. Mudra can correct me :P

The swastika's used by the Finnish army/airforce where introduced by a baron, right? He directly copied them from the Buddhist swatsika so IMO that can't be a problem.

Yeah. But now look at it as an average Joe and what do you think as the first thing that pops into your mind?

Aye, Nazi.

Look at it as the German law. Are they allowed to play then or not?
