MyrddraalBoW, They can't use RTR models or animations or anything because it is a copy right violation. Unless they came out with a FH: RTR mini mod or something that couldn't be played unless you already own RTR. They have to use a vanilla or custom models because this is an mod to vanilla. It sucks cause there are some great models they can't use, but alas legality prohibits it.

I think that is actually not correct. This argument came up during the BVF discussion aswell, and as long as they serve no commercial purpose, there is no copyright to worry about. Copyright Protection in BF only comes in once someone trys to earn money. So all R2R and SW Modells and weapons may be used by FH without having to worry about any copyrights...

I downloaded it because screenshots can't speak for themself, and I must say it has to be one of the best BF custom maps i've seen in awhile. I'm glad it won 1st place over at BF42.de in their mapping contest.

Okay... I actually tried it on an empty server... and despite my earlier quite stupid praise I don't think it's worthy any kind of Official map designation... on the other hand It's probably what you might expect from say a waw map pack. First of all the textures are not as great as they seem on the nice photoshoped screens, I think they are too "colorfull". Second the new skins on the houses are not pretty, although the bunkers look good. I also don't like the urban design (a square with boxes and fences around it??), but the nature is very good, I like the beaches and the trees, reefs and cliffs. And finally the most devastating thing is that he actually made the whole of Corsica in one map! And then Corsica is (my guess) probably atleast 10 times bigger than Guadalcanal irl. So I say it's nice try, doubtfull it will survive even as a vanilla map (custom maps rarely do), but I guess it could fit in Waw pretty nice.

I believe you are wrong. DICE said they would not mind if modders would use theirs stuff in mods as long as not commercially released, BUT the problem is all right lie with the publisher who is EA. As long as EA has not given a green light on using stuff from expansion packs I would not do so...

Actually, EA was the one who said we could use BF stuff in BFV, I was in that IRC chat... Although they practically avoided the question, they implied it was ok...

pretty much all you have to do is edit 1 line in init.con in the menu folder, change the classes to be fh specific, thats it. no need for such harsh language!
