I was surfing the web today and found a site that has an assortment of new maps. And I see that there is one for Pearl Harbor... I tried to get the links, I don't know if there really busy or if you have to register there. or what's going on But I thought I'd share it with all you. Here's the link below. Oh it is a german site, with some english here and there. I just tried out the map and Looks pretty cool But! It needs Buildings, houses , hospitals, repair depots , ammo dumps. Maybe link to the editor of the map to get permission to edit map with more buildings and trees, give it more of a real feeling of bombing a real Island.

The Link Below is the peral Harbour web page if you can't get the map from link above. Just download the rar file. and extract it using winrar to your mods folder.. http://www.kg-stadtmitte.de/Bf1942/

I think thats just the limitations of the way they're making the maps. We don't actully have a map editor yet.

Yeah there will be. What you do is Take an envolope put about $50 in it send it to EA that way they can just make another game with no map editor or SDK.

ok...this is like the hundredth time i've said this..but i'll say it again.

In a IGN Insider interview DICE said the offical Mod Toolkit (SDK) that includes a Map Editor would be released sometime early this year.

My personal theory is it will be after Road to Rome, they're holding back the SDK because they're trying to control the community. They don't want any maps that could rival there professionly done ones yet because they want as many people to buy Road to Rome first.

When I say this alot of people usually go "Yea...stupid EA...all they want is money" But keep in mind guys, they're a big company, they don't want anything but money. So in a way I can agree with them. Its a wise business decision. Yes it sucks for us to wait, but thats the way the world works.

This site has a map editor and other useful tools for map making . It works pretty good too ..

Here's the link check it out .for those of you that want to try map editing I agree on the map making the way that people do it ..When they came out with coral sea. It installed to the correct files. and not the mod file. Why is it that we have to put maps in mod file instead of in the main file so you don't have to active it ? That would be nice Like UT has where if you dont have the map when your joining a server it automatically downloads a cache file of the map in your directory. and then your ready to play... Anyway heres the link for a editor

None of the download links seem to be working, maybe the servers down or something?

There are map editors and unoffical SDK's out there, but they're far from as good as the DICE one would be (I assume) Killjoy was complaining that the custom maps around right now are boaring and crap compared to the offical ones.

Just saying, don't be disapointed if your not able to make maps like DICE did. Unoffical SDK's and map editors is all the community has been able to scrap together until the offical ones are released.

Well ..I have to say that link was working yesterday. I was there and got the zips myself.. Could be that everybodys downloading it, Filefront use to be like that. I could never get any downloads cause I would always get the message "Can't display website error thing" Well I was at another site that had a editor but I forgot to save it , oops !. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Quote;Killjoy was complaining that the custom maps around right now are boaring and crap compared to the offical ones. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know about that .. the Peral Harbour is pretty fun Lot's of ships, Infact to many, it seems that when your around the ships on line you get a little lag .Other then that it is fun, but needs a little improvment. But ! They did a good job on it, being it takes alot of time and effort to make maps, or edit them. Also the map Coral Sea is a good map but I never play it that much anymore because you just fly over and bomb a ship. Ok ! I think the editing that MoonQuake did on that map with Coral Insomnia was excellent. he added alot of features that the original didn't have such as the control points and Boats. But then again everyone has different tastes. Now the DC Mod was really cool but I don't even play that one anymore because it needs alot of fixes. such as the chopper, you can't even fly it unless your playing single player. But they did a hell of a job on it.

Many good people out there with artistic talents. Wish I was as good..

Boring Yes you get really bored of the maps after a while, Unless you find a person you can work with as a team or everyone works as a team. It's hard to find a good server with team work, because there's usually TK's or some jerk that just came on line to play and thinks everybodies a bot! Plus the teamspeak really helps.I use ts with Target_X and we know whats going on all the time, and who's on the way over to get your flag, Because you don't have to type a message out. Specially While your Flying , lol

Also the Mods. I usually DL them just to check them out. and if there good i use them here and there.

Again MoonQuake came out with a good mod BogcagePlus Final very fun. But couldn't connect to anyone on line, a few bugs. Wish he would get that fixed !

Oh well enough ! P.S. It would be nice if ea /dice would come up with some good maps or mods that you can download, Like you can do with HalfLife, Now they had a lot of updates with teamfortress and cs and a few others. trying to enhance the game and keep people coming back for more..Plus you can get all those mods on line for free. Makes a customer (game Player ) happy. People are the buyers and are not happy when you pay out alot of money for a game and it's very slow with patches or updates or free mods or maps. Look at what all the people said in the forum when it took so long for a patch. They were not happy consumers, Nice to have a change in a game .

just airing my thought .. Have a g'day
