Well, there are obviously some popular FH maps on servers aswell as some less popular maps. Unfortuanatly I´ve only seen the popular maps been hosted latley. These 15-20 maps tend to get booring after a while. Now I know not all maps are suitable for all amounts of players, but FH does have some 40-50 maps and I think most of them are worth hosting. So please admins, don´t just host the evergreens. FH has a bunch of other maps than can be quite a blast. You just need to be reminded of it. PS: What happened to that community mapping contest ? Are those maps ever going to be released ?
Which ones for example? There are in my opinion enough good ones for the game not to get boring, why rotate the worst ones then?
I like maps like BTR and Rheinübung, they are special and fun to play, but I don't really like the lame equivalents of good maps. There are lots of maps that offer the same gameplay, but twice as fun as their ugly equivalents.
The bad maps aren't just fun to play and usually have some major gameplay flaws, for example, the flag running ones, Orel and Saipan. There are loads of similar maps with a lot better gameplay.
there's probably a lot of talented programmers out there. can't you make a program that creates a random server list, based on two things: a request to the user on how many maps to add to the list, and a file stating the maps that can be selected? it can probably even be done as homework for some of you in some simple program language, such as VB or something (no need to make a program such as this one in binary, unless you absolutely want to ;) )
i heard from one admin that it was not likely that the maps would change on their server for some time, because of all the hassle of changing the rotation. this way we might actually see more of what FH has to offer.
Here Here. I have to say I for one haven't even played all of FH's new maps on a server as far as I can remember. Is there a limit to the amount that a server can have?
My ideal map rotation would be
Nordwind Battle of the Bulge Tobruk Kasserine pass Iwo Jima Battle Isle Wake Island Desert Rose Arnhem Gold beach Charlie Sector Breakthrough
& if your adding custom maps i'd run Otokilos maps too!

Well - actually you just need a voting script for which you select the maps available, count them up with the votes and save the results in the db. Once you want the most voted maps you save it to a file with the syntax of the maprotation list. Shouldn't be too hard to do. But you would need to copy it anyway. And to be honest - using BFSM and making a few clicks can't be too hard. So people would only need a voting script and that is included in any phpKitpage I know.
i agree but i'll add one BoBritain or BtReich - i simply love air maps
and i cant understand why people like the Kasserine Pass so much, but it is a matter of personal taste i think, because maps seems to be popular
we have an rather well visited 40slot european server, but there is a problem with some maps which are deemed "very popular" by some people.
i regulary see playernumbers fall with maps like for example "breakthrough" and other "populars" which i like very much, but do seem to lack interest for "normal" non FH crack players.
if you want a list of popular maps for publics i would suggest those (in no special order):
rheinübung arnhem foy berlin45 omaha charlie sector gold beach stalingrad falaise pocket supercharge market garden the storm
Strange, Rheinübung is probably the least popular map on FragThe.Net Bravo. We're currently holding a map vote which can back up my findings. Cheers, Mick
Umm I miss some custom maps. Frag the net has its "in the hell of bulge" server, but it would be nice if there were some server with a rotation list only with customs maps. I remember these custom maps servers of Day of defeat. I loved it!!
