So what? So keep the Kursk map and rename it something else. The point for me is that's a straight head to head battle with no room for flanking or escape. It's intense and small. Bigger and expansive does not mean better. I also like the Bulge map for Vanilla even though that's not historically accurate it's a fun battleground. Bocage sucks dicks so rename it and add an extra flag or two and voila!, whole new map with no connections to the history. I don't care what anybody here says about removing all FH maps, the best map ever for this mod is a Vanilla map, ............ El Alamein.

I think that the only thing that needs to be done is for those old maps to be "FHized". The mappers now only spend their time making new maps, not fixing or adding to old ones. Take Guadalcanal for example. Add more vegetation!!! And Market Gargen? A city please! And Bulge? As I have been reqesting repeatedly...add to St. Vith. It's too bare and doesn't look like a Belgian city.

The oold Vanilla maps have a certain charm about them. We shouldn't forget our FH heritage, that we came not directly to FH, but from Vanilla. ;)

Redo them don't scrap em all! some are good, some are not made for FH and I could also say that one or 2 maps should be in vanilla not in FH *cough* *cough* battle Isle* cough cough* God I hate that map, sounds too vanilla for FH, though I like the suicide kit in it hehe.

But come on, all vanilla maps arnt scrap

keep, I think there fine and most play pretty well. Only thing I could see doing is changine textures, and maybe replacing some of the statics with FH ones, aside from the usual fh tweaking.

I say just add to them with the usual FH standards in mind as of now. The Vanilla maps are way under par and need to be brought up to speed.

I agree that some vanilla maps do provide fun gameplay and could imagine them redone not completely scrapped and ppl will love them again.

Gotta say, Im in the minority. I know the maps may not be "realistic", but damn... we have fun playing them

Everyone always forgets at the core that this is still a game.

I happen to like Midway. Open naval and air combat. Played Berlin the other night on my server... was great. See-Sawed the whole time.

It kills servers when people jump because they dont like the map. Go to the servers host sites and offer suggestions. Most will welcome it so long as you arent rude about it.

Of course the maps can be reworked, but you can say that about any map. Anyways... just pipping in.

I like all the maps...
