I am going to start server side modding some maps in FH to fix some balance issiues,I am just going to stay with what the map has but add or remove some stuff,not adding lets say a KT in a 1940's map or anything like that,and maybe fix some of the game RFA stuff,I am asking before I do it as a courtesy if this would be ok by the DEV's,after I am done with each map I am going to place them on filefront or fileplanet for public download,it will be all server side so nothing will be needed for player download. I would also like to start some threads on some maps to get a feel for some of my ideas. CrimeScene
Ok,I see by the response that you all don't care if I do or not,I will hold off on releasing any for another 24 hrs,if you have any objections or would like to see them 1st you need to let me know. CrimeScene
I was just on the Deadmeat server playing Karelia and noticed they server side modded it. They removed the rocket launcher hanomag and replaced the katyusha with a stationary 105mm howitzer.
I disagree but this is a free world.
If an important server uses your changes the mod will be played as it was not designed by the FH dev. So now is your decision to realize if this is fair or unfair.
Yup it was done a long time ago now.
Ya, I know DM servers mod there maps nice work to I remember when LMS Pav gave you the first server side mods when you all were just DC. I will not release any MP or single palyer if you all feel that way I thought I would ask first,I don't see the fair or unfair I just have high morals, but I will say this you all got some weird idea's on balance.

I think it's better if you send a comprehensive list of things you think are unbalanced to the devs (or better: post them on the forum) and see it changed in 0.7. :)
I'm all for a server side mod that will fix the balance. Kharkov Winter for example, has been bitched about in 5 threads over 3 releases and still hasn't managed to be fixed.
In respect to the FH team just make sure the server name has something saying its running a SSM on it.
The other day I played a game of Gazala that had every airplane in the mod in it. It was actually pretty fun. A lot of neat planes that aren't in any maps like the French fighter and the B-25 w/ 12 .50 cals and rockets. Not realistic at all, but a nice diversion.
Replace all Vals with Oscars.
It has been brough to my attention that maybe I was rude about it,that was not my intent as you can see I asked 2x and waited 48 hrs for an answer,after I got the reply I honored the request not to do it,If I had a server I would have posted it was a SSM and explained what was modded on my web site,I have always included a read me with them.
