Hey FH folks -i have noticed alot of FH honor being placed on the old red Tractor -seems like in the first release that was even the symbol. I know one Dev has it as his Avatar. What is the background of the tracor symbol?

Lot of fans complained because they were thinking it was stupid to do such useless thing instead the nameless vehicle, so the FH team adopted the traktor as a symbol of our rebellion against the mainstream ideas

Random little things are fun! Norwegian Resistance has the sled, Finn Wars has skis, and Forgotten Hope has the tractor. It's a neat vehicle, although I think it could be added to by, say, having it tow ammunition or something, as I suggested earlier.

I thought it might be something like that -also perhaps a symbol of attention to Detail. And Lobo was the Avatar i was thinking of

Rad got bored one day and made some tractors. We showed these to the fans, and some of them started flipping out "OMFG!!11 WTF IS WITH TEH TRAKTER! THATS NOT A GOOD VEHIKAL! WHY ARNT YOU LAZY BUGGERS MAKING SOMETING USEFUL LIKE TEH TANKS N STUF!?!?!!?!?1112"

so we adopted the mighty tractor as our dev icon out of spite.

Its a well known fact that Traktors during WW2 were invisible to radar :naughty:

Well most traktor drivers are considered to be "neutral" when driving the traktor and most people leave them be. Its probably the reason why it doesnt display on the map. Of course I must admit I commited the crime of pulverizing a traktor with a Panther once :uhoh:.
