DC Black Hawk Down is based entirely off of the popular movie, which im a big fan of. I undertook the task of making this map for a few reasons. The main one was the dissapointment i have with earlier attempts at a Black Hawk Down map. not to insult the makers of those maps, but in my opinion they did not put enough effort into truly bringing scenes if the movie into their maps (for instance putting ural tankers, stingers, and a bunch of those white lostvillage houses on their map - just didnt make sense to me what they were thinking when they made it). Im not sure they understood what was really goin on logistically in the movie. This map is as close to the movie as i could possibly manage. flag areas and city sites were constructed using screenshots and video clips i took of the movie (using Fraps). Gameplay has been significantly changed from normal DC as well to reflect the movie style of combat. With this map, I also wanted to explore bf mapping-which can be a tricky business at times. in addition i think this map stands as something of a tribute to a great movie. a true fan of the movie i think will truly enjoy this, while the novelty will no doubt be lost on some. a lot of work went into this, so enjoy it as much as you can, at the end of the day - you dont lose anything.

\/\INSTALLATION: simply extract the DC_Black_Hawk_Down.rfa file into your Mods\DC_Final\Archives\BF1942\levels folder.

start DC Final and wah-lah

-I realize the file size is very large compared to other maps- this is due to the numerous map specific objects in the map.  the only method i knew to get them in required copying many texture and standardmesh files from other maps.

(To remove map just take file out of your levels folder or delete it.)

//////////CHANGES FROM NORMAL DC\\\\\

BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN READ WHOLE THING!!!!!!

-PARACHUTES DON'T WORK - NO PARACHUTES
-KITS HAVE BEEN HEAVILY CHANGED:
	(however i couldnt change icon on some i.e. it may say somali sniper, really just another assault.  also random icons will occasionally show up on inventories even though you dont have weapon, just ignore it)

	Somalis
		Icon says:	Actual Kit:
		Sniper                   Assault (AK-47, Browning pistol, and knife)
		Assault		Assault (AK-47, Browning pistol, and knife)
		Anti-Armor	Assault (AK-47, Browning pistol, and knife)
		Heavy Assault	Assault (AK-47, Browning pistol, and knife)
		Support		Assault2 (AK-74, Browning pistol, and knife)
		Special Ops	Assault2 (AK-74, Browning pistol, and knife)

	Americans
		Icon says:	Actual Kit:
		Sniper		Sniper (M-25, pistol, knife, binoculars)
		Assault		Assault (M-16, pistol, knife, grenades, grenade launcher, binoculars)
		Anti-Armor	Anti-Armor (SMAW, pistol, knife)
		Heavy Assault	Heavy Assault (SAW, pistol, knife)
		Support		Assault (M-16, pistol, knife, grenades, grenade launcher, binoculars)
		Special Ops	Special Ops (Car-15, pistol, knife, C4, smoke grenades, binoculars)

	Pickupable Kits (Press G to pick up a kit)
		-Somali Anti-Armor (RPG-7, pistol, knife)  -  there is a total of 7 of these in the city (2 at Bakara Market (main spawn), 2 at Target Building, 2 on rooftops at Wolcott_Crash (large crashsite to north), and 1 on rooftop north of 				target building
		-Somali Heavy Assault (PKM, pistol, knife, grenades) - only somali kit with grenades.  8 of these on map (4 at Bakara Market, 2 on roof north of target building, 2 on roofs of Wolcott Crash)

-TO MAKE THE OTHER TEAM "BLEED" TICKETS:
	Somalis need at least either - Wolcott Crash
			     or      - Durant Crash (smaller site to south) AND Target Building
	Americans need at least either - Both Crashsites
			        or   - Wolcott Crash and Target Building

-NO ONE CAN SPAWN AT DURANT CRASH, EVEN WHEN YOUR TEAM HOLDS IT
-IRAQ SKINS CHANGED TO SOMALI MILITIA ATTIRE
-AMERICAN HELMETS FOR SNIPER AND SPECIAL OPS KITS CHANGED TO DELTA FORCE HELMET
-3 CUSTOM SOUND WAVS ADDED TO ENHANCE MAP

//////End of changes

Notes:
-I realize that this map is very rough around the edges, and there are bound to be a few bugs, and the size of the city will likely cause some people framerate problems.  I had meant to address some of these issues, but due to the lack of time i have, the amount of work i already have put into this, and the fact that my broken wrist makes it 3 times as hard to get anything on the computer done, i decided to release this as is.  

-originally i had a sweet Delta Force like skin for US, but DC Final changed the US soldier model.  for reasons already stated, i did not attempt to get old model in game or skin something for the new model.

-I am interested to know what people think.  send your praises, criticisms, suggestions, comments, etc. to hearnhardt@hotmail.com

Special Thanks To: 

-TheRabidRabbit, PaladinX, Night Hawk, and everyone at DC mapping forums
-Sawsun (showed me how to diversify those bonds)
-Jamal Lewis
-Ridley Scott for makin a sweet movie
-Desert Combat team for an outstanding mod (www.desertcombat.com)
-Fraps for the handiest little program out there (www.fraps.com)
