I hope this hasn't been suggested yet or at least not lately :rolleyes: : How about a night map? Is there maybe one already in the works? Cheers, Mick

It has been brought up a couple of times before, it might be fun for some specific maps so they (or fans) coud make a fun night map. It is possible to make a good looking night map with a good gameplay, so why not?

I loved the night maps in EoD, especially Badmoonrising by Dan Taylor. I wished he'd port his maps "Bastogne" and "Bastogne, a Nightmare before X-Mas" to FH. Those would be perfect, as they are really vast. Lot's of tank action around Bastogne and infantry action in Bastogne. Cheers, Mick

There are a few nightmaps in the works, and more to come. Right now our mappers and coders are figureing out how to make the best looking night possible, and I must say... they are looking REALLY good.

I hope they are at least to the quality of DC or even better. Besides DC, all other night maps in other mods are merely a night skybox with fog and, at the most, different textures.

DC night maps are actually dark, not just the skybox. You are always in the shadow, thus making models much darker, and when you walk into the light, your model actually gets brighter! Too bad they can't do real dynamic lighting from the explosions.

Compare BF:SW's night map and DC's Operation Bragg. In the first one, although the sky is dark, you can see the enemy tanks all the way accross the map shining green/grey. In Operation Bragg, you can't see sh!t 10 meters in front of you.

Lots of people dislike Bragg cause it's very difficult to see, but that's the way it should be, it's dark at night and difficult to see, duh!
