Why won't you just join Discord and be up to date with FH2 and its community? Forums like this are relics of the past.

Also this:
You're the public, so if you want it then you can organize it.
But of course you just want to seat there and do nothing, while others will invest their free time in things that may please you.

Discord? Ill look into it.

#1. I dont have a server or a website for promotion. Nor the time. I own a business & have a family
#2. FH2 does...(see previous post regarding a official FH2 event)
#3. The player pool is so small, a private effort to launch an event would not get the required publicity nor the players.
#4. My interest in FH2 (12 years) has been reduced to a couple of post a year.
#5. Jan you have always been an asshole on the FH2 forums. Nice to see you haven't changed.

auf Wiedersehen,

 I would like to see More Public Events to generate interests & help keep the game on life support.

 How about a cool Xmas tournament with snow maps and squad vs squad (12 vs 12) or larger battles....

Maybe mod Bastogne with a xmas theme....

Plenty of things that'll keep me busy for years.

 You dont have 1 more great Flippy map?

For old time sake?

General Discussion / Re: CMP Map Question
« on: 10-01-2019, 02:01:02 »
Are there any plans to update the CMP Map Pack so that it will work with the current version of FH2, or will it already work with it?  Just curious because I've not see any of the maps in rotation on the 762 server lately.  I miss the Pacific maps with ships.  :(

 My inside sources tell me it may be wise to wait a bit before going all 2.54 compatible.

 Word is that Flippy has decided to get drug free & will be releasing the French Army & 1 new map called "Operation White Flag"

@Jimi I don’t wanna derail this thread
that’s all well and good, but fair use doesn’t apply here. There’s no law saying that we can’t use that content. Even the Chinese mods that steal FH2s stuff get no real reprocussion because nobody has the time or patience to follow up on that stuff.

It’s more a question of morality. Those people worked really hard on their models and textures, and there’s no telling if they would’ve really been okay with others using their work for something else. Some (most) of them might not give a fuck, some of them might get legitimately angry that someone is using their work out of context. It’s not our position to say what they would’ve wanted.

Also, if we start just taking content for use in our own projects, it gives us no moral backup when we see others stealing our content.

To top that off, afaik the FH and CMP devs won’t release anything that hasn’t gotten explicit permission from the previous owner to be used. This is just a courtesy to other modders.

Keep working on the map, I’m curious to see how it plays.

 Agreed. Its a fascinating project!

I created a thread in the BG42 forum which has less than 10 threads in total. It is the only possibly active place someone could know about the devs. Places where there actually is a conversation about this are from 2008. I will probably never get an answer from someone that ditched the mod.
Then don’t use their content, ”ditched” or not, it is still copyrighted material you are not allowed to use.

Mat, I will not wait a hundred years until a savior modeler arrives. I will release the map as soon as it is ready with whatever assets I have available. After all, I won´t make another map, I just wanted to contribute with something nice.
BGF assets are not available for you without owners permission. Welcome to the world of modding.

 Seems to me....

1. If the community is dead & an honest effort has went into contacting someone after a reasonable period of time without any contact = Public domain.

2. Its not like he is selling this map for a profit. Its free to the community

 I made a Pearl harbor map for 42 back in 2010 using content from several mods without permission & shared it with my clan. No lawyers came knocking on my door.

3. There is always "Fair Use".

Fair use is a doctrine in the law of the United States that permits limited use of copyrighted material without having to first acquire permission from the copyright holder. Fair use is one of the limitations to copyright intended to balance the interests of copyright holders with the public interest in the wider distribution and use of creative works by allowing as a defense to copyright infringement claims certain limited uses that might otherwise be considered infringement.

Anyways.....Good Luck.....

The street layouts are not historically accurate at all. I just made a mix of many reference pictures and tried to create different gameplay possibilities across the different sectors of the map. In short, many areas of the map are "based" on real pictures, the rest are completely fictional.

Copying a real place in a 1:1 scale would have been bad because:

1. Inappropiate statics
2. Limited gameplay possibilities
3. Lack of mapping skills

 Yeah i see what you mean. Due to the enormous size of the city of Berlin, i always envisioned a map based off a sector of Berlin, say "The Brandenburg Gate" area.

 However im sure nobody in ANY gaming community has ever made a static of the gate.

Looking good so far.

 Just wondering blander will the street layouts historically accurate or no?
