i've never really gotten in to custom maps before, but i was just browsing forgottenmaps.net and some are really impressive! i must say FH has provided alot of tools and techniques, and some people are really talented at using the "FH feel" in their own unique maps. well while i was browsing i was wondering if the FH devs could take some time to look for a few custom maps that they could offer the mapper the option of including his/her map in .7 as an "official" map. i really think the officiality of it is kindof nessisary because not many custom maps are played on their own, and thats dissapointing because theres alot of FH-dev par maps out there! and alot of them offer a map that FH hasn't done before, such as new skins, new idea for a map.. etc, maybe it would shorten the workload for the FH dev's as well, by only having to create a "101st airborne skin" or whatever for a st. mere egleise map. if FH wanted to add, or improve the existing map, maybe they could with the author's premission. i think this would be in benefit where alot of maps could be represented, and add to the overall FH experience by adding new maps we haven't seen before, some examples include: - 101st or 82nd airborne drops over normady, st. mere egleise, etc. - a more realistic bocage.. - the list goes on... and also many maps offer a uinque feature, some examples include: - autopiloted planes flying over head - use of vegetation effectively - etc. new features would expand what FH has already done, pushing the bf1942 engine to the max! please give this idea consideration, your FH fans are missing out.. i'd also like to bring attention to cretan village, which looks quite nice :) i will be taking part in the testing today.

*Battle Of Ortona, with a fixed canadian army (right weapons and uniforms) this should be official *Nuenen, balance it and pick one country as allies. *Cretan Village, haven't played it yet but looks amazing. *Chartres, bit laggy though.

FH can't use maps with expansion pack statics like Kiev and Ortona. And I don't think el guettar and crimea are FH quality maps. If there is one map that needs and deserves to be included than it's In the Hell of Bocage by Otolikos imo.

To bad there aint no good custom maps related to Operation Barbarossa, it would be one nice subject for a map, or like Operation Torch.

I wasn't expecting to see Cretan Village or another version of Neunen and it seems that Cretan Village is gaining alot of excitement from community members and as well some of the devs; the author is being encouraged to submit it for the next map pack. It's great to see some great ideas being implemented in custom maps and some of them like you said are really up to par which makes it difficult to understand why they haven't been adopted by FH as an official map so I can only imagine the devs have their reasons.

you might want to check out kiew-1941.. its an infantry map, primarily, but it is based off of the early stages if barbrossa.. kindof has a RO feel to it. about xpack statics, maybe that is something the mappers could remove, so it can be made "official"?
