I dont want to bitch but I'm really want FH2 to come out a soon as possible. Checking all the updates I see every week another tank being made, a consederable amount at least.
This I dont understand, why focus on tank building? 2 for each side would be enough for the first release, I for one dont need every WW2 tank in the first release.
This brings me to infantery, I havent seen anything about that. While this is the most important, you can make the first release with infantery only since infantery combat in BF2 rules.
I think its very complex, seeing the beautifull infantery renders in BF2. But it seems that the mod team is focussing to much on tanks. Once again I dont want to critisize but I really want FH2 as soon as possible. BF 2142 is already on its way you know.
The problem is that the FH2 team doesn't really have enough skilled people to do infantry animations. The same thing happened with FH. They model hundreds of vehicles, but the infantry animations never get done.

They have skill to do the animations. BF1942 is just completely different and very hard to implement animations to the game.
But FH has been always about equipment. Who wants to play a game that has some Sherman for allies and some PanzerIV for axis..
The infantry animations are not done yet pure and simple. When you see the scope of what they have planed for how infantry combat will work you will see that's going to be the most long-term work. Not to mention that the FH team is made up of many memebers who are doing diffrent things at the same time. Maybe infantry Guy 1 and weapon guy 2 are not done with their parts yet but our Tank and plane people have their models done and skinned and ready for a news update.
its hard to make a mod and dont forget the fh dev still have jobs/schools
Firearms have been shown in newsupdates, FH2 policy is to show no WIP screenshots though so untill the playermodels are done you most likely won't see them ingame.
I for one do not want to see FH2 released "as soon as possible". I want to see FH2 released when the devs are happy with what they have done so far and judge it to be ready to be released to us. Only then do we know that we will have a quality mod released to us. They could probably slop together some alpha-alpha-alpha build for us to play with now but why would we want that? We've come to expect only quality from FH so why not continue with that? I think it's safe to assume that hardwork is being put on the infantry part of FH2 as we speak. Just because we see more tank updates doesn't mean they are neglecting the infantry. When they deem it good enough to be featured in an update we'll see it.
BF 2142 is already on its way you know.
Hah! I care more about the itch I have under my pinkytoe.

zero_zeroThis I dont understand, why focus on tank building?
It might seem this way, but I can tell you there are a lot of other things work in progress. But remember, FH2's first is the North African theater. Two tanks per side it certainly not enough. Most of the fighting in North Africa was tank battles.
1918 let out a small teaser mod to keep their fans "busy" and that worked for a while.I also would not say that the devs cant mod infantry that well, I f i remember corectly the player models in 1942 couldnt be moded they could only be reskined.I know for a fact that that is a little different with bf2.Frontlines ww2 mod already created a new player and it looks fantastic,i cant wait to see what the FH devs will do.Take ur time devs!!!!!
