File Description

This is just a great idea- edit the Battlefield minimap so that it shows important resource locations like ammo boxes & health cabinets. The first map SpikE has made this change to is Stalingrad. The map itself hasn't been altered or reconfigured, it simply displays the new minimap which gives you the valuable resource locations. :thumbsup: Since the file is in .rfa form it's just a painless drag-and-drop installation to your Levels folder.

This is a simple edit of the Stalingrad level Minimap.  It adds icons to the
minimap itself to show where ammo boxes, and Health Cabinets are located on the map in relation to you.  No more "Does anyone know where the nearest ammo
box is??????"

This is file is ready to play just open your Battlefield 1942 folder, then goto
Archives, bf1942, levels.  Remame your existing "stalingrad.rfa" to "stalingrad.rfa.bak" or move it out of that folder.  (This is incase you decide you want to go back to the installed version of Stalingrad.)  Once it is renamed just extract the stalingrad.rfa to the levels folder and then restart the game.

ex:  C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Archives\bf1942\levels

I finished this map and had my color drain out of my monitor.  Will be working on a new icon for health and ammo boxes if anyone has suggestions for the icon's please email me.  The icon's need to be small and a different color on stalingrad it is easy to see the ammo icon.
But on other maps because of the green background it is a bit harder to see.  Any help would be greatly appericated.
