Well, my suggestion here is rather short and simple. I think maps chosen for the official fan mappacks should be, in the next official FH release, incorporated into the official FH maps. That way the map count in FH2 will be further bolstered and favorites won't be lost. I know some of the maps did get that treatment in FH .7 (I think Pegasus was one of them?), but it would be nice if all of them were. That way there would be the following benefits: 1. More maps for servers to choose from. 2. More motivation for the fan community to make maps. 3. Fan favorites won't be lost (I heard Ortona was popular, but I never got to try it).
Ortona... why am I drawing a blank?!?! Anyways, Yeah that. If they can make it into a mappack, keep them in for good. F hard drive space, thats not the mods problem!!!
I already see that alot of the 0.7 Mappack maps are played rarely.
They are? What server you play on?
Ortona was an older map which, I believe featured some of the Road to Rome Statics. I seem to recall a very long railroad on a bridge.
Usually either WOLF of danmed priest.
Uh, I play mainly on WOLF, and those mappacks that weren't removed because they're buggy are played quite regularly and with gusto.
Actually, I think only the most recent mappack is played on WOLF, and that being only because it's the only one everybody owns. I could be wrong though.
is your game name johannes de nova?
I think it's really sad that mod developers don't typically incorporate fan-made maps into their official releases. I can understand the arguments about wanting to make everything in your mod yourself, but there are so many wonderful maps out there that do not get played simply because they are unofficial and thus not on server rotation. There were several maps made for Galactic Conquest that really were of high quality, but which never were played by more than a very small number of players because they were not official. It'd make me very, very happy if the Forgotten Hope team could incorporate unofficial maps into their offiicial releases (after having received the approval of the designers, of course).
