Since the first realease will be about the North African campaign are they going to add the Italians you think or at least some Italian equipment. I was just sort of making a suggestion and wondering.:)
Probably not in the first one, but maybe soon after.
Considering all the work being done on the Italians now, and of the usual FH quality (I assume), how much work would be needed to put the Italians into the first FH2 release? Maybe just on one map.
i guess the devs are concentrating their efforts on a reasonably quick release, so i doubt italy will be included. i wouldnt wonder if only the germans and the british will fight it out in the first release of FH2.
Please keep in mind all that we have to do in order to release anything at all.
- Convert or create a lot of vehicles
- Convert or create a lot of weapons
- Create a lot of statics, mostly from scratch
- Create new player models
- Create a new set of voices
- Create new maps
- Create new menus
- Create a base of new code for BF2 for all of the above
- Test the hell out of everything to make sure we havent made an unplayable mess
- More stuff that I can't remember at the moment
All of this has to be done on a new, more complicated, and still unfamiliar engine. Anything that has a trace of BF1942 in it has to be redone, and only a little of what comes with BF2 is immediately useable in a 1940s environment. We want to get something into your hands quickly so you can start giving us feedback on what is and is not working for you. Adding more armies will only delay the first release, so the Italians (or whichever is army #3 for FH2) won't truly get to your hands any sooner, by jamming them into release #1. Don't worry, we won't let Montoya's ugly beauties go to waste--their day will come.
take the time which is needed to give us a good quality first release of FH2. all the people who are loyal to FH until now, will still be loyal for the FH2 releases. player numbers have fallen with the relase of BF2, but now they are constant or even a bit rising again (check bftracks modstats). and the 0.7/final release for bf42 will give us lots of entertainment for the wait for FH2! keep on the good work! :)
:salute: I understand it takes a long time but if you could just put them in one map. It would add a bit more variety. PLS...Pls.
Don't put any more pressure on the devs than there needs to be! They are working hard to get it out ASAP. I would rather have it out sooner with fewer armies, since they will always be added later. I'm curious though, what kinds of maps will we be looking at? I'm betting we're definately going to see Tobruk (at least one of 'em), Kasserine Pass, and hopefully El Al. Are there any others that are in development that the devs would like to touch on, or are we just going to have to wait for another news update? Please tell me it's the former rather than the latter.
We will see if the italians can be added soon, I just say that as soon we have them I have a K-I-C-K-A-S-S theme for a map with them.
Sounds good i'm pumped.:D
