I was thinking the other day about how great Bf1942/DC/FH was, but was disappointed with the capture system that was currently bf1942. I tired of the unlimited supply of everything, the constant behind the lines captures, the camping, The constant drone of the action.
I longed for something else. I remembered the days of Counterstrike, and the intense action that was Counterstrike. I guess it was the whole one life to live aspect that did it, but I didn’t think One life would be enough in Bf1942. Bf1942 scope is a lot larger then CS. BF1942 is about a battlefield, and not a small engagement.
So I started modifying a map in Forgotten hope. I modified units, weapon kits, created some new kits, adjusted vehicles to only spawn once, and to never disappear. I removed vehicle Map Icons, flag capture radius(now really big), added flags, limited spawn in kits, and gave trucks deployable kits. In all I got real familiar with .con files within the map.
I took out all of the spawn points within the map, and instead focused on Mobile spawns for spawning. I took some halftracks, and trucks, and made them a point of insertion. I also created a deployable Tent as a kit. Deploy the tent, and it becomes an easily destroyable spawn point for your squad. These spawns are highly vulnerable, and your only life line to take the map.
The first map I did was Forgotten Hopes “Battle of Foy”. The mission series map is MS_BATTLE_OF_FOY.rfa
The US Armies Mission is to take Foy and they have at their disposal 2 M3A1 Halftracks and 2 GMC trucks. Each of these is a mobile spawn, and can deploy 9 weapon kits each. To include 1 Medic Kit, 1 Anti-Tank Kit, 1 BAR kit, 1 Sniper Kit, 2 Grease gun kits, 1 deployable Mortar Kit, 1 deployable Browning MG kit and 1 Deployable Tent (Spawn Point) kit.
The selectable Spawn loadout for the US only consists of a standard soldiers loadout (1 Garand, 2 grenades, and a knife.)
The Germans Mission is to Hold Foy at all costs, the towns been shelled for several days, so equipment is running low. At their disposal for defense they have 1 sdkfz251 half track, and 2 opels trucks. Each is also a mobile spawn, and can deploy 9 weapon kits as well. To include 1 Medic Kit, 1 Sniper Kit, 1 Anti-Tank Kit, 2 carried MG42 kits, 2 Deployable MG42 kits, 1 deployable Mortar kit, and 1 Deployable Tent (Spawn Point) Kit.
The selectable Spawn loadout for the Germans consist of Close combat Mp40/2 grenade/Knife kits, and standard issue K98/2 grenade/Knife Kits.
Please download, and give it a shot. It’s at 126.96.36.199/ms_battle_of_foy.zip (11Mb), just extract it into your Battlefield1942/mods/FH/archives/bf1942/levels/ directory, and if you do not have a server, mine is up (although it can only support about 12 people) at 188.8.131.52 port 14567
I’m really looking forward to feedback, adjusting accordingly, and making more modifying more maps like this if there is interest.

LuddendorfI don't know if it's me who's stupid but were do you guys find the download link??
read the whole post :newbie:
Downloading now to check it out. I'll soon be on the server.
edit: My download stopped and now the server is down or something.
the download link is.... 184.108.40.206/ms_battle_of_foy.zip You have to copy and paste it into your browser though, it looks like this forums stops direct links due to advertisements from what I gather. The map appearance wise is the same as "Battle of Foy", I just heavily modified the gameplay aspects. [edit- My server only has 386kb upload, the file is 11mb, it's still up, but might act flacky depending on traffic. ]
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Run 4 Da Gunscreenshots please
...There isn't much to take screenshots of this is gameplay changes mostly.
Wow I just played a little 1 on 1 game with Walker42 and I have to say it would really be cool if some more people played. Even 6 people would make the gameplay really cool! It's got a neat little strategy of mobile spawn pionts that I like a lot.
Try it out guys, it's pretty cool!
Everyone should get this map!
Its really really good!
