Yeah I just had a brain wave here. FH1 at completion of .7 was around a gig and a half in size. The BRITISH part of the AFRICAN campaign in FH2 is about that same size.

This begs me to ask, how big is this thing going to get? From the looks of things, it might get bigger than the original game itself.

There's quite a difference in how the size gets to be that big though. Forgotten Hope 0.7, which was over 2 GB by the way, had many, many more maps than Forgotten Hope 2.1. I think this was the larger part of the 2 GB. On the other hand, Forgotten Hope 2.1 has much higher resolution textures, most of them accompanied by a normal map of the same size and resolution. These improved textures take up most of the 1.5 GB of FH 2.1. If we ever get as many maps and vehicles in FH2 as we did in FH 0.7, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a 4 to 5 GB download. ;)

Even if FH2 grows up to 4 to 5GB in size, it'll all be worth it.

And to think, 45 years ago that was probably the capacity of the entire fleet of computers at NASA. And Bill Gates said we'd never need more than 640k....

That big? Thank got i got outer hard-drive (500GB) where i can backup most of my files if necessary. But even if FH2 will be that big, it'll sure be worth it. =p

Actually 26gb was probably bigger than everything bigger at NASA 45 years ago. They probably would have had 1gb at most.
