I recently heard a rumour from another mod that DICE and EA are not allowing any content from BF1942 or BF:Vietnam to be ported to BF2.
Hypothetically speaking the mods would have to use whatever vehicles and statics they have made and the BF2 content. This is not so much a problem since we all know DICE's quality and accuracy, and several of the FH models are BF2 quality (Tiger II, Panther G, and PzIII or so I have heard).
Based on that and watching all BF2 vids again I was wondering about what we would all like to see first?
Not having seen the BF2 map list yet its hard to say what statics will be available but Pacific and North Africa look likely based on the content seen so far.
Personally Im a fan of the North African campaigns (Big suprise for a tanker to like North Africa :D )
Assuming it doesn't "go Vietnam", some proper Finnish maps with nice woods would be awesome, as would Pacific maps. The Russian front is sorely needed too.
Why Finnish? Well, if we leave the obvious reasons alone: -Custom voices. I don't think it's a good reason to use the modern voicecommands that come with BF2. Don't fit for WW2 themed game. -Custom weapons and vehicles (except for DP1928) -Unique map theme. Something that shines over the desert and jungle maps of BF2. I for one would want to see something new with the first mods.
Anyway, since "From Barbarossa to Berlin" -choice isn't available, I'll go for "Barbarossa to Kursk".
But for the love of god leave the Normandy theme alone for the first few versions!
I would say whichever is easiest to get up and running the fastest. I chose africa because it seems like bf2 already has a desert aspect in it. Next I would have chosen Pacific or BMI for the same reason.
Eastern Front, this allows FH to show all of their german beasts and this allows me to drive a new T34 :D. But seriously, i hope its not Normandy to VE day, most of the WW2 mods on BF2 will probably center on this, and im sick and tired of seing the standard "US attacks a small german occupied village" scenario. Especially since theres gazillion games already focusing on that.
Whatever is easiest to complete.. probably the desert and a single pacific map or so.
if we think in BF2, we think in desert, right?
I think FH2 needs some snow teathers, european 1944, like DOD do in HL engine.
but I voted in poland to dieepe....
China-Burma-India. Seeing what nice jungles the BF2 engine can accomplish I wan't som clear jungle battles. And I love fighting as Japanese against the British.

Exacly! All the other mods are focussing on the vehicle rich western/eastern front. But the unknown battles are not covered, FH could change this ;)
Yes, but everything will have to be redone completely if we want a India-Burma-China front..
The western/eastern front wont be much better. These jungle maps are not vehicle heavy at all, unlike the other fronts i mentioned.
