A question about map sizes, dont know if its been asked before so here goes. Will the map layout be the same as BF2 as in a 16,32 or 64 player size or will it stay as it is in BF42 either a large or small map?

Can't be positive, but I believe it's a yes for scalable map sizes.

What makes you believe that? (Just wondering, because I don't think devs have said much about it.) Pros of having 3 map sizes per map are different gameplay and vehicle settings. For example, hypothetically a 16 player Tobruk would focus on urban fighting, whereas a 64 player Tobruk would encompass huge tank battles with close air support. This way, tankers will be happy, and infantry folks will be happy, and everyone's happy. Cons are it might be hard work, what with having to move flag points around and deciding how small the map should be, etc. I'm thinking some maps should have 3 versions, others should have 2 versions, and others should have just 1 version. That would be best, imo.

Bf1942 had 3 map sizes IIRC.

The "Dynamic Scalable" BF2 maps were pretty much a crock, it was just 3 versions of the same map.

Will FH2 make their maps "three maps in one" style like BF2 or not?

I doubt it considering it means 3x the work balancing and testing.

yeah... bf2 was just lazy with thier "dynamic maps". it just means they only had to make 10 maps, and they can say they have 30.

I hope you make one size for clanmatches. The thing that I hate in BF2 is the fact that those 16 player maps are too limited and only one of them has jets. In a perfect clan map for FH2 there should be 2 planes and 2 tanks + jeeps & APCs.

I think...

That your signature is 11 pixels too tall.

On topic: Its Forgotten Hope. By defination, some maps must be absolutly H U G E.

I think it's 1 pixel too tall, but too tall it is. Please resize it.

Also FH2 maps can not be bigger than FH maps, which is maximally 4 by 4km and normally 2 by 2 km.
