Hey guys, while roaming the internet i came across this nice looking custom map for FH: Its called ''Invasion of Sicily 1943'' and it's a remake version of the old RtR map ''Operation Husky'' made by some people of the LostDivisionClan. Pics of this fine remake can be found here: www.bf42.de And a downloadable version can be found here: http://www.lassomator.goracer.de/download/invasion_of_sicily.rar After you downloaded the rar file to your harddisk, extract the rar file with WinRAR. Put the outcoming invasion_of_Sicily.rar file in your Forgotten hope folder. (..\..\Battlefield 1942\Mods\FH\Archives\bf1942\Levels. And after go ahead and visit the LSD Battlefield Server (IP: 22.214.171.124.14567) to give the map a spin! Cheers, [NL]-=MarsUltor=-[NL] (It would be nice if one of the devs could check the map; because it can be a fine map for the future Italian campaign) All credits go out to the makers of this fine remake. :bows:
looks great but...jagdpanther?
There's a Jagdpanther on it? Sure it wasnt a Jagdpanzer IV?
Anyway, it's looks like a decent map but, isnt it illegal to use or modify Road to Rome maps and add them into a mod that doesnt need the expansion pack? If this is true, I cant see the FH team using it. If I'm wrong and the designers simply used Operation Husky as a blueprint to create their own from scratch, then I'd highly recommend it. Especially with the Italians coming to FH in a not so distant update.
EDIT: My mistake, it is a Jagdpanther. But werent they made in 1944?
If there is a Jagdpanther on the map, it has to go. Not historically correct...
Now, they may have asked if they could use the map, but I doubt they did... If not, they should soon, before the long arm of the law comes smashing down on them.
its just the layout without the statics
I loved, and still do, the RTR Operation Husky. But the remake for FH "Invasion of Sicily" looks, even i hate to say this, very ugly on texture wise. The basic is all good and so on but the textures are _standard_ BC textures :/ Plus, whats with americans attacking the beach? Nevertheless, i like this conversion, but it could be better! Good work.
this map looks amazing and it was always fun to play back in the RTR days
I liked the textures more actually overall, and think they did very with both taking advantage of FH stuff and accomadting the loss of RTR stuff.
It is a little wierd playing with germans instread of italians defending, which is ok since it the best option. However, I take exception at jagpanthers for which production didn't start in earnest until feburary of 44. Not that big of deal though.
If only there were Marder's in the mod, they'd be perfect for this map.
