I think its time for the community to fix the things the devs didnt find time to. Idea is to create a not very big patch that fixes things that dont feel right. What we need are everything (lol) -We need someone who supervises the development, i would say at least two people. -We need mappers that can do things like lock guns, and eventually establish push modes on maps (maybe a coder has to do that.) -Coders -someone who can create the installer... (coder??) I think we wont need Beta testers, except the one FH already has. So if you can help in any of these, or think you can help with something else, contact me on msn: [email]jhor@hotmail.de[/email] or just post here. I do not want to be the leader of this project, i just want to get it started. Heres a (possible) to do list, feel free to post more ideas or discuss them... -88 accuracy (maybe also all static at guns) -MG cant turn 100% anymore, on Some shermans and the Kingtiger -RPG 43 and Geballte Ladung should be able to be thrown like a very heavy hand grenade, not like a block of concrete. -Glitches on Dice Berlin -Berlin Streets needs to get Push map, the cap radius of the 1st flag needs so be scaled down. -Falaise Pocket: All jeeps/trucks removed Possible push map bleeding needs to be worked over tanks spawning behind german main need to be spawning in it. 105s need to get into better cover tanks locked -Liberation of Caen possibly to be push map tanks locked -Meuse River line Maybe replace the Static Liberty with a usable one, that cant drive -Operation Blacknight Needs its push mode back -Goodwood Many 105s need to be replaced by 6 pounders -Panzer3 needs to get the realistic accuracy -m36 needs the MG gunner moved a bit into the turret -Panzer 2 turret speed needs to raised -Adak island/midway Japanese carrier musnt give ammo to the allied planes. -Daimler needs armour adjusted needs to have a reduced ability to shoot while running -Stug 3 Needs to get the 75 aim (minor thing though) -SdKfz7 external views need adjustment -Jagdpanther needs a weight adjustment (heavier) -Bazookas on East front All bazookas have to be taken out (they only got about 500-1000 in total) and be replaced with AT rifles/RPG43 -Stuka almost never had only a single 250kg bomb, needs to be replaced by other versions -MG42/34 Fire effects need to be scaled down -Pegasus Possible to not have the german KWK5 respawning when bunker is in allied hands. For the british it should be something they could paradrop, maybe a two pounder. I guess there is more, so then tell me your ideas, concerns...

ferrari makes a fine car, its very brittle and breaks down a lot, but we all still love to have it

putting a body kit on it would make it look better but it wont be a ferrari anymore

with that out the way, yeh fix FH, dont make some bugs of your own

-On desert Rose the stairs in the Uboat Pen are in the air so you can't use them. -Puma turn rate needs to be adjusted -the italian baby stugs gun has no flash damage at all, which makes it obsolete, since you cant turn the gun for one degree.

There are some things that are bugs and would be good to be fixed. But in most of cases what you want to have done is not a patch-fix but change the FH. It was created by it's devs and some tings were meant to be like this. Everyone can have different opinion on how some things should be done, but I belive that DH devs found compromise beteween historical accuracy and gameplay in most of vehicles and weapons limitations and possibilitys. Now it can't be just changed like this because you think that it would be better, if FH would be relesed to hands of all fans to do patch it would never be done. Everyone can think that things should look different, so everyone would want to correct other's "mistakes" after releseing such fix. Only few of these are real bugs, these could be fixed with help of coders and a little time spent by even one mapper. But I think that this have to be left to decission of FH devs.

The devs admit themself, that they would have done some of the things i mention, but wanted to release 0.7. Anyway, thats just a list of my ideas and subject for discussion.

So you want to create a new team of Devs to work FH1? As I see the Devs (real ones) have decided that it is time to move on and they judged that FH1 could be left in it's current state. I have total faith in the devs judgement so therefor I think doing a new "community-patch" is a little excessive. Even if you do get a team together with skilled people working on a FH1 patch I would much more like to see those guys working on FH2 with the old Devs.

[21PzStauffenberg] I think its time for the community to fix the things the devs didnt find time to.

I don't think the reason the devs didn't include/fix all they wished they could was because they didn't find time to do it. I think the reason was that they were satisfied with the current FH release and wanted to move on with FH2 which is were FH´s future lies.

id only be willing to support it if u got the backing of the majority of the server operators out there that they will run it when it comes out. considering theres only a few active FH servers as it is now, further fragmenting the community with half people playing official and half playing fan-FH would be sadness :(

Bah, why just make it a bugfix, lets all combine our powers and making it a Desert Combat ala Final version type.

You all know we just need to have more of Poland in Fh! :)

Yea, thats right, for success it would have to be an official, just not by the Devs made patch.
