I've spent the whole of my day off trying to do this and I've realised that even if you import the heightmap from a bf1942 map, it won't work in BFV (at least the larger maps), BFV doen't seem to handle the size of the map... even if you get it looking right in Battlecraft, when you load it into the game, the coordinates for static objects and spawn points are messed up.

Getting the terrain (I presume you mean the textures) into your map is a case of replacing the texture .dds files in your BFV maps rfa with the textures from the original bf1942 rfa.. repacking your BFV rfa and then opening it up again in battlecraft....(did that make sense?) If you get one of the larger BF1942 maps to convert to a BFV map and get it running o.k.... let me know.... If this wasn't any use, then just ignore
