Road to Basra (Road_To_Basra.rfa) v.0.35 Alpha Release

A Desert Combat, Conquest Map. (Unofficial)

This is a composite map based on events, places, and written & broadcasted news reports about the war on Iraq.

This map contains most of the land and air vehicles featured in the DC ..35e Alpha release.

Map Objectives:

There are 2 permanent flag bases; The Iraqi Military Command Center, and The Coalition Staging Point Base.

There are 5 Primary flag points to capture (AreaValue); An Iraqi Airfield (30), The Republican Guard Base (25), The Oil Refinery (25), Iraqi Government Building (20), and a Small Village (20)

There are 2 Secondary flag points to secure; An Outpost near the airfield and a Hotel in the city. These two have zero AreaValue but it has strategic value; it brings you closer to the action.

Release Notes and Issues:

v.0.35 A (May 12, 2003)

Updated for DC v.0.35

Added BDRM2-Spandrel Vehicle Spawns.

Added A-10c Cluster Bomber Spawn.

Ingame Map Redone.

Re-balanced team inventory.

Still just straight multiplayer Conquest for DC. No Single Player mode, CTF, Co-Op, TDM, S&D, RTR, or BF1942 support.

v. 0.3 A (May 10, 2003)

Added machinegun points.

Added Coalition Destroyer with "Cruise Missile" (DC v.0.35)

ObjectLightmap Shadows NOT finished. I am having trouble with 3DSMax 5 settings.

v. 0.25 A (May 8, 2003)

Added vehicle spawn; 2nd coalition blackhawk.

Added Heliport @ Coalition Base.

Fixed floating buildings.

v.0.1 A (April 24, 2003)

On the load screen, the progress bar fills up then refreshes numerous times while loading. I don't know why it does this (in my machine) but it loads just as well.

I'm having difficulty creating a MaterialMap file (I followed every Tutorial out there but the file still crashes the game), as for now I am using El Almein's MaterialMap. :(

Map Shadows and textures need improvement and Object Lightmaps are not done. Next upgrade...

For now its just straight multiplayer Conquest for DC. No Single Player mode, CTF, Co-Op, TDM, S&D, RTR, or BF1942 support.

If anyone with the mapping resources, tools, time and skill would like to help further the development of this map, please contact me at [email protected]

Slows or lags (momentary freeze) during flag capture or multiple vehicle spawns. Watch out for the city area's high FPS rate.

Map balancing... Not done yet.


Created and Tested on BF1942 latest patch and Desert Combat v.0.35e latest as of May, 13 2003.

Runs smooth on my 1.50 GHz processors with 260 MB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti 500 Some slowdown and lag during flag capture and near the city or around complex modeled vehicles. The DC team is still working on optimizing certain vehicle models. (as of May, 13, 2003)
