I would like to see the Maps in the Maplist sorted by year, for example: 1939-Fall Weiß 1940-Battle of Britain ... ... 1945-Berlin It would make things easier and its not too much work since it could be done editing the lexiconall.dat Do you also like that idea? Post your comments!

That's just a copy of Battlegroup42 - let's keep the FH system.

I'd also agree this system is extremely similar to BG42. On the other hand, I liked it there since you knew what year and what month the map is supposed to take place in. So you'd have a rough idea of what equipment will be at your disposal (tanks, aircraft etc).

Some Servers already host maps in that order. But since nodody plays the whole map cycle through at once, I dont think it makes a big difference...

I'd like to have it that way. Maybe even with a code in prefix too [year][quarter][theatre], for instance 19424A - El Alamein 1942 being the year 4 being Q4 A being Africa

i'd set this at medium priority, if accepted, as it should not be much work, and thus would not push aside other projects. And also that really is a welcome change for many. it also adds to the educative part of FH. Medium being less than fixing bugs, but more than thinking out new maps.

I think that he is talking about the way the maps show up in the selection screen. Yes it is server based if you play online but you should be able to change the maps from alphabetic order to chronical order too. A chronical system would be far better, i wish all server would be like that.

And who cares if other mods use an exact same or simular idea? If FH likes some ideas of XPww2/BG42/bf1918/.. they should be able to adopt the concept (not copy there scripts etc. though), if an other mod would like the dome concept from FH it would be fine if an other mod used that (again not direcftly copied the whole code). Infact i didn't even know that BG42 used this approach to maps (i never played BG42), this has happened in the past to... some people (FH,BG42, xpww2, ... devs/fans submit an idea without knowing that other mods already use (or plan to use) the same idea. either because they didn't played the other mods or it is on the secret to do list of the other mod.
