I didn't make it!
Real-BadSeedactually i made this map, but lobo set up the push sytem flags, and did the lightmaps for me. I didnt have my new computer then, and couldnt do it myself, due to limited HD space. im glad you like it, thx :)
awwww:( how mean is that lobo is taking your thunder:uhm:
I see that the suicide bomb kits at #5 are where pilot kits would usually be. Can you use them with the planes to kamakazi the ships? :lol: Or do you get no effect without selecting the suicide bomb?
Sgt.kar98What I thought that was awesome was the Sahariana window.It may look stupid,but is very complex.Try shooting at that square on that window... The bullet will cross that!!!!! Its not a simple draw that hides a solid thing.Its really there!!!!
Concur, that rocks. The Sahariana is way cool anyway--I just wish there were a map where it could be of more use! That model is fantastic.
FuzzyBunny...but I had a go with my trusty 1911.... ....but I think you'll agree that I can speak from a reasonable amount of personal experience making this statement! :-)
My man! You do know what you talking. And I see that you are one of The Chosen, and recognize the superior characterisitcs of the 1911 .45 ACP. IMO, the gun and the round form the Holy Grail of combat sidearms. (I haven't personally used the Glock .45, but I suppose, as with all Glocks, it's pretty much buttah.) But there is no finer military sidearm than a Gov't-model .45 for combat conditions. I haven't shot a P-38 in about 15 years, but they were POS-feeling (that yucky old-style plastic grip), and okay shootig but looked far better than they shot. Napoleon Soloand Ilya Kuriyakin made the P-38 look cool, at least.
That being said. In my own training and use (I've probably put about 10,000 rounds of hardball through various 1911 .45's, plus a Combat Commnader with the shorter barrel) and I hit hard and very fast with it. Not nice tight little groupings, but consistently lethal double- and trip-taps, either from ready stance, or holstered from belt, shoulder, ankle or just slipped in the small of the back, and under vest or suit coat or jacket. And running. And jumping. And crawling through windows. And belly-flopping. And reloading a time or two.
And using any 1911 model, even the short-barreled Commander, firing as fast as humanly possible, even at more than one human-sized target, an experienced hand can ALWAYS hit kill zone within three shots from 10 yards in, without conscious aiming, and sometimes just pointing, but always a Weaver or Cooper stance and double-hand wrap grip (yes, it takes a lot of practice to get to that point, but it's not Jedi kind of stuff). As you said, there's plenty of recoil, so you can't just hold it like a garden hose, and it really helps to have enough ass to make that hog submit, But I did it. And I ain't nobody special. I just worked at it for more than 20 years.
So I don't find FH 0.7's .45 at all unrealistic, except that it's not capable of the even higher ROF and greater accuracy (within 10 yards) possible when used by someone who is expert. Can't say for sure about the P-38.
I gotta say, the kind of dedication to testing and improving the parameters of FH that you showed is outstanding, FB. Good work.

It's, eh. I would never have bought it--I inherited it from a friend. What can I say, it feels badly made, all the parts wiggle, and there's no hammer. I mean, what sort of play toy doesn't have a hammer? Easy to shoot, though. And as we know, that's what gets girls. Especially large-bosomed Austrian girls named Hilda.

Well, not having ever seen combat conditions, nor ever intending to, all I can say is "W3rd, erm, I guess." It goes boom and puts large holes in things and keeps on doing it, which is great, except that I have the original mags which do the whole 3-point block crap fairly often.

Nothing NS and IK did would not be cool. Although I prefer I Spy, myself.
You de grand master at putting holes in things. *Bow*. I actually find the commanders much easier to hit stuff with, fast. Shorter barrel, go figure. I also usually try to keep running and jumping and screaming and whatnot separate from the shooting--I find I make the neighbors nervous otherwise.

OK, probably the usual smoke cracking miscommunication on my part, but the point was more to compare a bunch of real-life guns to the crackpot P38 and M1 Carbine and friends in FH. The .45 in FH is pretty mad powerful--I just had an insane 2-for-1 sale kill on Bulge today, shooting at a guy running up the stairs of the church, and mowing down him and his buddy without even realizing the second guy was there--I'm still not sure how fast I fired there. However, the other guns are just stupid. The Garand is actually one of the few semi-autos whose ROF I find right.

Actually I just wanted to go shooting (finished off with a fine round of destroying things with the Mossberg 12-gauge) and I thought of this argument when I was down there :-)
FuzzyBunnyOK I've got one the rates of fire for hand weapons are hilarious. Examples are the M1 Carbine and the P38. Find me an infantryman who can pull the trigger that fast, much less one who can even hit something. I just noticed this because I usually try to watch my ammo and aim, but pistols or semi-auto rifles seem like they've become the new SMGs. I don't know if this is new with 0.7 or whether I just never realized it before, but I would strongly put this forward as a candidate for "fix" in a patch.
Agreed. They slowed AT weapons down and thats fine, but this dosn't seem like something FH should have done. Anyone can pull a trigger that fast but the point is actually coming anywhere close after the 1st shot. The smalls arms seem to have gone to a more arcadish feel like CS, unreal tornement or one of those type games.
Saipan is a beautiful map, my favorite from .7 bar none, but it is NOT historically accurate. The Japanese forces made their last ditch defense in the mountains in the midpoint of the island, where flag 4 is, not the end where flags 5 and 6 are.
EDIT: Also, the island is rotated the wrong way by 90 degrees, and i can't see why. The southmost point in the ingame map, where the USA forces land, is actually the northern tip in real life. the island is still SHAPED right.
Wanna go Double Dutch?

"Saipan-1944" merged with "Impressions of FH" thread.
Saipan is a very cool map, me wubs!
OMG... I just got a 'reputation' for this topic stating 'you should be banned'. yeah THAT really hurt... ROFL

Barrel-suckers of the world, unite! Several years ago I bought a Mossberg 3 1/2" 12 ga., not knowing *blush* that there's nothing really magnum-y about the 3 1/2" shell, other than increased shot load...not a bit more powder. Drat!
Something cool to do with a .45 in right conditions: on a clear, bright day, near sundown with the light at your back, if you can get a little altitude and shoot slightly downward, you can actually see that old 240gr hardball bullet lumbering along at its 750 fps. I did it from an abandoned bridge about 30 feet above a creek, and the dark creekbed formed just the right background to see that gold-colored hunk o' copper-jacketed lead waddle like an offensive lineman downfield. Neat.
Sorry for the sort-of off-top.
