Lobo said in his post that modellers and skinners are still doing modells for future release. So I wonder if the dev need this? I would try to find some if needed. I can imagine if there's several maps of chinese theater in FH2's future release, there will be a lot more chinese BF players who know FH2 and play FH2. For the moment, although I keep advertising for FH2 in many chinsese BF forums or pcgame forums( through translating weekly updates into chinese, and deliverying the dev's idea ), there's still few chinese players concerning about FH2( I'm really sorry about this:( ), because many of them know too little about the euro theater, the pacific theater, but they have deep feeling about fighting with the japanese.

Uniform refs can be interested. Also interested info about small arms of Chinese army in 1937-45. Also need info and refs about armored cars, it's most unknown part of chinese army armor. I have refs of foreign armored cars in chinese army, but not homebuilt vehicles...

We don't have any specific plans yet to include the China theatre, but you never know. There is a lot of interesting material.

People outside China talk a lot about the Flying Tigers and so on, but there was a lot of fierce ground combat involving Chinese troops over a long period, as WWII started up in China long before things had gotten hot anywhere else. If we don't get to it, I hope some talented Chinese fans will start a minimod.

Shanghai is cool, but I don't know about military museums--there is a general history and culture museum there that might have some things.

I was thinking the same thing. I'd like the Pacific theatre to be a lot bigger this time, but naturally that means a lot of work for other people. If I can find the time, I am going to try and design a few maps or model a few necessary vehicles.

This might sound silly, but I hate watching a group of Japanese kids or Chinese kids playing Pacific theatre maps. I can't count the number of times I've played in Hong Kong based servers where everyone would change to the allied side when the game started, or in Japanese servers where everyone would change to the Japanese side.

I've never seen the hardcore HK and JP servers do that, because they tend to be run by adults who aren't propaganda fueled idiots, but I've seen it on others.

About chinese theater... In principal, it's not too hard from unit-list position. Chinese army use foreign armor, foreing aviation and foreign small arms/artillery. Only for 1937 maps to need lots of armor - Vickers Mk.E, VCL M.1931, VCL M.1936, Vickers-Crossley Armored Car M.1925... But i not sure about high priority for chinese theater. We can make him only after Pacific theater.

Sorry. Can't wait that long. zju_wangyi, let's make a bunch of maps for the Chinese theatre, starting in 1931, and get a mini-mod going.

I'm trying to find some pics which can show chinsese and japanese uniforms. Yes, you are right, most of the armored vehicles of chinese troops at that time were from abroad, such as British Vickers.

I was born in a small city of china, studied in Hangzhou, and now are working in Nanking. I'm not sure if there's a museum in Nanking, but I'm sure no photo can be taken in museums.:(

I'm sorry to say there's too few talented chinese modder.:( Some chinese players did make some minimod of BF2, but the quality is not that good, especially comparing with FH2.

I live in south china and I've never been to the north. Shanhai is near to me but I've never been there, either. Nanking is also a nice city which has a lot of places of interest which are worth visiting.;)
