It does scare off alot of potentials, however it cant be changed.
I dont want to see alot of classy content and sounds cut because people have cheapass connections.
We are still waiting for the goddam Nazi Texture pack anyway...
That nazi texture's pack will not have an official release. I think that I saw it in other thread. But i don't need these swastikas to be a happy FH player :D

Well I have read a lot of different things too, maybe it's better not to jump to conclusions on this matter.
The size definitely scares people away, but as we all know, the mod will never be able to start shrinking. I had two good gaming buddies who used to be in a DC clan with me, who simply would not get FH because of the ungodly size. After a few months of that, I got off my lazy ass and burned the installers (3 files, which IMO is pushing it, at least .61 is small) and brought it over to their places and installed it for them in the right order.
Anyways, the moral of the story is the size of the download is definitely hurting the playerbase, but as loyal fans of this spectacular mod, it is our duty to help get our friends hooked on the game, and keep posting positive things about the mod so more people will stop being lazy and download the damn files already.

Woww!! is FH a sect or anything? :lol: Yep, 3 of my friends now play FH because I've downloaded and toasted the FH. ... Oh my godddddd, I've fell in the tramp!!!!. Another FH's slave ;)
Isn't possible to optimize the current version a little bit? To check about fat textures, optimize some models like you guys did with Tiger and KingTiger, etc. Am I wrong or in the files are there still some unused models in? (not available ingame). If so, they could be removed and added in the future versions which use them.
I know it's not easy to do as it is easy to say, just a suggestion.
Pretty sure they are optimizing all the time. But it's only going to help out performance when you're in the game. It'll have a negligible effect on the overall size of the files you have to download. And having to download 2, 3, or even 4 gigs of files would be a small price to pay for playing this mod. Course, I don't have a download limit with my net connection.
WEll, I think its sth like this..
People dont know how good FH really is and they think "1.2GB just to try it out and delete? no way".
HD space is so cheap right now that no one should complain about 4 gigs . . . . . for 80 more it is like $70. The DL time can be a pain even with broad band due to where you are getting it from. My suggestion is that if you have gamer friends who don't have it due to DL size, burn it to a CD for them. Get this mod distrubuted, it is a great mod and the more players we get the more server's go up.
Hey now watch it! We prefer the term "advocate" to slave, and "cult" to sect. :lol:
