Just a little something I found... I haven't played it yet, so I can't attest to how good it is. http://www.casey-williams.com/ndrop.html If it's any good, I hope I'll see it up on a server soon.

Its an OK map. Its way to big for infantry combat.

Id like to see it reworked to be a bit smaller and have the points closer together. It also needs more vehicles...and some extra details would be nice (plane wrecks/mounted machine guns/sandbags and barbed wire..... etc etc)

It would be cool if there was an abandoned base in the allied drop area that gave them some more vehicles.

I think the mapmaker was looking for a little more realism than that, crabcakes.

It's a good looking map, I like the way the fences keep vehicles to the roads mostly, and there are some well thought-out ambush and choke points.

However, the forests are going to be brutal to medium- to low-end comps. They could probably be thinned a little, without affecting gameplay.

I'd like to see a Normandy Drop map by the FH devs. You don't see many of these maps, and I'm sure they could do it well.

too big for a team of 25 ppl on foot capturing 6 points in the night but i love how many vechicles the mapper put on so you can steal it will turn out to be a FALL WEIS divided by 2 conclusion: this map will be torture and hell (8/10) for the allies but hell the war is hell and toture plus u can play an african american soldier (kinda) i love the apc and only sit 6 so the others have to run which is a downer but like i said ITS WAY TO BIG FOR INFANTRY with a low number of vechicles mostly stolen

There should be C-47's in this map so you have to be flown there, and there should be AA scattered around the map. Any night drop map would be WAY more fun flying there in C-47's. I think it should be like the Battle of Britain, with the allies having an airbase across the channel, and the rest of the map is France.

no.... map too small for plane activity and where will the airbase be? britain? that would make the map too big or like another crete. and last time i remembered c-47 pilots did not land with the paratroopers on d-day so IN MY HUMBLE OPINION i think the map should stay like that. but using a c-47 to drop troops over a base would be convient but if yur good you should capture a base and spawn there the only thing that bothered me was this map shows how bad the paradrop target site recognition was the landing site is no where near the coastal guns and artillery guns where they should of landed

FH needs to have more night maps. These custom maps are all great but in australia there are no custom map servers. I hope theyll include some custom maps in the next release.
