I'll be posing the info in a few minutes. I'm going to try and localize all mapping questions etc. into this one thread. So...chill out in here or somethin..
Is this for download or is it info just for mappers?
I cam back from Poland 1h ago...nice present. Thanks Pierce :mEk:
Weee! an elite map-contest ! ;)
Let's wait and what's the point :)
Btw. Matyas.... how was it ?
Finally FH has some decent CM-support.
I hope this support for CM will be maintained...
Poland was great. Gorzov and Poznan are great cities.
this thead is mostly so people can discuss what maps they're going to submit, or ask questions if they get stuck while making a map.
Theres quite a few interesting maps either already out or soon to be released that would get my vote for a fan map pack.
Firstly Rammelle Nuevile.It was the most popular FH custom map of all time and just had that special bit of magic that made people play it non stop for hours.The only down point is it uses Road to Rome and Battlefield Vietnam objects which despite adding to the map greatly, this would stop FH being able to include it in a release.I'm sure it could still be included in the fan map pack.
Next is The Arras Somme offensive map which is not yet released.The map looks realy interesting and of course will feature the French.The only down point is the map includes an army with unfinished equipment...
The Nuenen map also would get my vote once the final release of it is made.It features several custom statics, dead soldier statics and unique gameplay which reminds me of Call of Duty.Despite not yet playing the map online i'm sure with some tweaking it would settle well with the FH community.
Normandy Drop is a forgotten map based on the D Day drops over Normandy made by the 82nd Airborne.The map is set at night and has some realy cool ambience.I've not played or heard from the map creator since version 2 was released about 3 or 4 months ago but i'm sure with an update to 0.65 standards the map would be great.
what about some of the .5 maps such as crusader, nancy, korsun etc.. some of these maps were really decent.
some not like giza, which must not be included (mobile v1 launchers in 1941 and stupid island map layout..=
Hmm, look forward to see new maps. There are already some good candidates floating around, just depends on who's going to submit it. I think all good maps should be taken in though, the best should get the prize additionally. This is because mappers might feel that it would not be worth submitting if the chance is small it will be accepted anyway. Now the fan mappack doesn't sound attractive, since it has a bad reputation.
I suggest either taking the maps in the mod itself, or just plain reject it. With the current standard of FH maps, only quality maps should be accepted, in my opinion. I don't think many maps will make it though, since a good map takes time to be completed, and needs to be perfectionized. This means every mapper has it's own date of release, of which many might not make the date of the contest.
Ah well, we'll see.
