Title: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Oberst on 24-03-2011, 11:03:57
As the old thread got closed, because of - well - private chatting, I decided to start a new one.

As news are rare at the moment, I want to start with a summary.  What do we know about the next patch, especially the BotB content as Russia is very far out. I mean the already shown stuff, as well as for example the maps and names spotted on the test server. And some speculations, what is missing and a "must have".

Since the last patch was shown:

Is there still something very very important missing? A weapon, a tank? The most important thing are the US winterskins, which need to be done or better to say, finished and shown to us.

The next list will contain the names of maps, which were spotted on the testserver (a Part of this list is taken by a list made by Kelmola in the old thread):

That are some Maps related to the Eastern front, the next 3 maps are maps related to normandy (Ok, the overlord map seems to be a testmap and comes up for years now.)
Then there are maps, which seems to portray to the BotB fighting. The last maps are related to the Hürtgenwald battle, which is already german territory.

I will finish my post with some speculating.
One of the map sreenshots, which was shown in the january news, has some similarities to kettcars signature. So I guess: One map might be done by kettcar:

(http://www.abload.de/img/fhforumbanner3ufsl.jpg)
(http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/screenshotsfh2/news/110117x/map03.gif)

Next I remember there was a "hurtgen forrest"-thread in the modding section. The screenshots on the january update made me remember that. The map shown in the moddings section contained a forrest with a lot of fortifications and even some special statics, like westwall bunkers. In a short search I couldnt find the thread anymore, nearly all evidence in the public part of the forums are gone. But I found a thread, where torenico asked what to do next (Hürtgen was an option) and in the "battle of aachen"-thread he showed a very WIP of such a bunker. Next he said, he want to redo his "battle-of-aachen" map.

Very, very WIP sreenshot of a bunker made by terenico, 1 year old. The ones from the hurtgenforrest map, looked different and were more or less finished.
http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/1424/r503rndr.jpg

My randomn guess: The hurtgen forrest map from the modding section had enough potential, so it got moved to the internal forums and might be one of the maps of the release.

Thats it, I hope this thread will not be closed because of chatting. I hope we can summarize all the infos, which are written between the lines and such, as we got a lack of news at the moment.

Oberst

PS: I nearly forgot, the tank warfare will be reworked, which was said somewhere in the suggestion forums.

usually you never ever see any stuff before the news / relaise.
They only showed us the 4 pics of the wip maps because we won the moddb contest.

I remember going through this thread! Thanks Irish for bringing it back up! I sincerely hope that FH2 continues to be developed! Lately have been growing more and more afraid of opening the forums and finding the dreaded final post....."Sorry guys we are going to move onto new and fresher grounds. FH2 will not be developed anymore"  :'(

@Irish: Thats the Sreens I meant, that is even the Map I meant, but thats not the thread I ment. I am damn sure, there was a thread in the modding section and its name was "hurtgen forrest" or something. I remembered your behind the scenes thread, but I forgot, there were so much screens. Thanks!

Your example of the Eihandgranate shows, sometimes stuff is shown, of course unintentionally, but shown.
I am not so sure, we will never see this map again. And somehow I cant get rid of the feeling, that some Devs and/or betatesters sit infront of theír computer sreens and just cant tell, they want to, but cant.

Well if lightning doesn't want to tell you, your best bet would be asking the dev who posted the stuff in the first place for a comment ;)

i think it was the application map for some dev, we playtested it only few times, it had some issues on performance for some people and later we did some skirmish in the maps urban areas. which was always quite a lot of fun with just a handfull of people. not really sure what happened then. focus went on next release in terms of testerplaytime spend on maps. and then nothing. or at least nothing i can remember. i dont even remember the devs name who made the map.

i liked the maps setting, dug in italians in hillside vs british supported by artillery and some tanks. however balancing this map would have taken quite some time i guess. and as said before back then that time needed to be spend on maps closer to being finished.

Keren is in Eritrea, not Ethiopia.

The map hasn't been worked on for several years, so it's unlikely it will ever be in a patch.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: psykfallet on 24-03-2011, 17:03:36
that's cool, didnt know there once was a Keren map, kinda wanted to make one myself. Perhaps it could added back someday what with some new italian stuff like the cannone 47 and fiat 626 has been made since then.

Back in 2002/2003 FinnWars had maps called 'putkisaatana', peloikaspossu' and 'minttu'. That was clever.

we should be happy that the devs dont call the test maps " A1" "B2 " ect. then we would have nothing to conspire about^^
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Ts4EVER on 24-03-2011, 22:03:17
Do you really think the devs are trying to be sneaky and hide stuff from you? In that case they could just use an unlisted server and noone ever would know what maps are tested.

Well, I am sure there is a thread in the internals, where they make fun of, what the puiblic thinks. [/trolling]

Seriously, I am not always sure, if every map has the right name, which it will get later.
And dont forget: This is the conspiracies thread. Conspiracies are all about guessing total random information with no real reason and seeing everywhere a possible lie or intentional missinformation. This thread should be settled somewhere between a little trolling and real, information based discussing.

Conspiracy

1. An agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act.
2. A group of conspirators.
3. Law An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action.
4. A joining or acting together, as if by sinister design: a conspiracy of wind and tide that devastated coastal areas.

Is it just for reasons of kindness that the FH2 devs promised to discuss the offer of developing another FH under the umbrella of an official publisher? Will they really do, though we know they've always stated, that this is a non-commercial project? And finally: Was that offer a fake by some troll or what is going on? Questions over questions...

And that's no exaggeration either. British in North Africa, still my favorite player model - And the Chevy!

I do wonder if any of the former devs just happen to have some models or maps still in test or just waiting for the right time to emerge... Some North African or Normandy Map, or some seriously cool vehicle out of nowhere... Would really love to see that someday....Age gives models class :)

Wasn't Omaha originally Lobo's baby?

However, I agree that what I would really love to see is better utilization of the fan community. Say, the devs would like to see a map X in the mod but none of them is interested enough to do it or more likely, is otherwise occupied already. So they just start a new thread in the Modding forum, announcing their wish for a map, promising only that they might consider testing the map if it is beyond commercial quality. Also, while tournament maps as such are not the same thing as proper release maps, the FHT and WAW guys should really start considering seriously which of those could be polished and tweaked enough for official release. I would see great potential in there.

---

By the way, whatever happened to the "smaller updates but more often"? At this rate, the interval between 2.3 and 2.4 won't be much smaller than between 2.15 and 2.2 ???

We want good maps. What it's about is (almost) entirely irrelevant to us.

Also, while tournament maps as such are not the same thing as proper release maps, the FHT and WAW guys should really start considering seriously which of those could be polished and tweaked enough for official release. I would see great potential in there.
There are multiple maps in 2.3 that started out as tournament maps already.

By the way, whatever happened to the "smaller updates but more often"? At this rate, the interval between 2.3 and 2.4 won't be much smaller than between 2.15 and 2.2 ???
Since 2.4 moves us to a new theater of war, which requires new vehicles, new statics, reskins of pretty much everything, new playermodels, etc... we did not take the "fast and small" approach.


Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: djinn on 25-04-2011, 22:04:05
And personally, I think we should stay off that sort of approach - No offense, but I would rather have the one-year long maps that are almost exact to RL locations and play epically like PeB or PDH - I rre-aally hate CObra.

I was so excited when I heard the 'dont touch it till I'm ready to do it' for Omaha and was waiting to experience the real to life deal map - With exact mg positions, bunker layout and all, then... Nada...

And now its like, oh, that ol' thing, its just another map - We really weren't planning on making it ..

Dude, its OMAHA! It must be!

Anyway, guess i needed to let that out someday... Well, pitty to hear. Guess that's it for d-day then...

Since 2.4 moves us to a new theater of war, which requires new vehicles, new statics, reskins of pretty much everything, new playermodels, etc... we did not take the "fast and small" approach.
there are a few more Normandy maps yet to be released.
Hmmm..... Fallschirmjäger and US paratrooper models confirmed?

Well we have a lot of maps that are started but never finished. I don't know if someone ever wants to finish it or if it's worth finishing. All I know is that now we are not working on an Omaha Beach map.

make a contest! everybody make a as real as possible looking Omaha beach map, the best map will be tweaked  further to met the demands and looks of every other fh2 map.

set some outlines for what such a map needs, how big, what kind of bunkers, gameplay ect.

Yer, also make the effort to make it real to life - I might be wrong, but with 2x2km map, we can even have it to 1:1 scale - Also gives the Allies an area to flank from if the beach is that wide and more to do when the beach defenses are taken i.e. Ohama Fh1 meet Gold Beach FH1 (Best of both worlds)

@Beufort, then its a American or Canadian beach then...

omaha will fail in the game imo.
32vs 32
32 Us guys running over an open beach vs 32 entrenched germans, with tank bunkers and hidden mgs.

That just work when you send 1000nd soldiers at the same time to rush the beach.

I don't see why you guys need a sanctioned contest from us to make any kind of map. If you like mapping, create a good map and apply as a dev. Do you think Toddel waited for a modeling contest to create stuff for FH2? Do you think Guderian waited for a mapping contest to begin work on Villers Bocage? Pfft I say.

So in other words, not as intended?

Will those things ever get released? Cuz I think it would make for cool gameplay - Especially in Singleplayer. Its been so long since they were announced and then nada - And now the devs always seem to sidestep the question - Almost like they used to do Omaha

If an object is spotted for so long on a battlefield, it is no longer spotted, but mapped... Either that or its a mirage.

In other words, Omaha, either exists and is some insane map that needed 3 years of work to balance, OR ... it classic misdirection... Heck, maybe overlord its Berlin or Saipan, named that way to throw everyone off....

The ostfront/every army from FH1 that isn't already added never gets added (Gonna get sick of playing all the "over-credited" factions eventually, right?)
The Ju-88 is never added
No paratrooper maps besides Invasion of Crete will ever exist for FH2
Bfewaw's amazing ships aren't added at least as something servers besides WaW and the Jpn air map servers are on

Considering that FH1 still gets 32+ players on a daily basis, hasn't had an update in 5 years, and was never anywhere close to as popular as FH2, your fear is quite irrational.

Based on statistics we can rather safely asume FH2 will have players for the next 5 years. Based on insider knowledge of all the upcoming surprises for 2.4, I personally think FH 2.4 will be more popular than ever. But I can't base that on statistics.

Honestly, even though I havn't been able to beta-test for the last 2-3 months because of school work, I can definitely say that 2.4 will definitely be as or more popular than the release of Normandy. Its really great and I suspect the community will love it as well  ;)

We havent seen any maps yet. And its not likely, that they release them without showing the maps in several news. And there are no american skins for BotB.

So they might show the first map. And then maybe every week another until release.

But its not likely to post such a thing on facebook using morse-code. That was only used for the "big announcement". So it would be likely that it is something total unexpected, like an omaha map or a market garden map or whatever. I would rather expect market garden, as a lot of things are done, "just" maps are missing.

Give up the old rigs, please. I did, too, and even when I still had it, I didn't bitch about the next-to-nonexistent hardware demands. If you want your FH2 to look contemporary and better than that other mod, you can't expect to play it on a gaming rig several generations behind the current. Fact is, if you buy a top-of-the-line system now, it will be "average" the next year and in the bargain bin the year after, three years on and you can't get a slower PC unless you go for an office PC with mobo-integrated graphics.

As for conspiracies, <Palpatine>all is as I have foreseen it</Palpatine>. The REAL reason for the lukewarm reception of fan-vamping Aberdeen into Kasserine was that the They (devs & tadabesters) knew all along that a Kasserine map was already in the works.

However, extrapolating on that one, what else they have in the works that they are in public vehemently denying or half-reluctantly disawoving? P-38 Lightning is "not needed" because it is already in the works?

When I first joined up a month or two prior to 2.15, in 2008, I had a wild conspiracy that Normandy was taking so long because they were working on Russia in secrecy, probably around 50% done.
When I got the developer build I was kinda disappointed. Normandy wasn't even half-done, and I was among those tasked with finishing it.

Yeah, when you have the money for it, it is no problem. When I had performance problems while am Forgotten Honor event, there were some people, who couldn't believe it (there maps are not good optimized). And I always play pure FH2 on highest settings without any problem.
But the fact is, that not everybody has a strong PC or at leat the money to buy one. ;)

Didn't we some screenshots of this map in the modding section some time ago? To say it better, in the French Hope section. I am really looking forward to this map, since the layout seems to be very interresting. I hope it will find it's way into the French Hope release.

Edit: Sorry, there are only screenshots of Sonne from very early stages. They layout is from Sedan.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Kelmola on 22-08-2011, 13:08:12
Yes, there were screenshots. And, Stonne (along with Sedan) was supposed to be put into public betatesting on Bastille Day, but 2.4 kind of stole the wind and that event was cancelled.

But curiouser and curiouser, later in the evening the player list of "Kev's" showed several more devs and tadabesters, so this can only mean one thing...

...pending an official news update, French Hope has been accepted into official development.

I skipped a bit through the French Hope threat. Two other maps were mentioned. A map called "Bir Hakeim". There are different possiblities for this battle if you use wikipedia. 1. The Battle for Bir Hakeim in Lybia, what would add one more african map with one more faction for the african theatre. And 2. the resistance group of "Maquis Bir-Hakeim". This would be very interesting, but I think the first solution is the more obvivious one.

Second map shown in the threat and also spotted on the test server is "Operation Dynamo". There are some screen shots of the cliffs and other spots on this map. Could be some layout as the 32 player version of PdH but much bigger. Brittish and french forces get pushed to the sea or something like that. This could be very interesting with mixed forces. But we will see.

In the modding section I explained to someone, what software is needed for mapping or modeling/texturing etc. and I gave a little hint, that mappers could be needed more propably. Then a Betatester or a Dev, don't know exactly, added that they have more maps than they can test. So maybe there is a good chance to see alot more maps in general (also for eastern front), maybe not in the next patch but afterwards when eastern front is coming. Also Lightning stated that there won't be any eastern front maps in the next patch. I could imagine, that the focus is more on finish the Bulge - as Djinn mentioned - and ofcourse I hope for French Hope included as soon as possible. This would add a nice new dimension to the mod.

Post by: djinn on 24-08-2011, 16:08:29
I would rather have the Russian maps 2 releases away than one, and here is why.

Some amount of gameplay tweaking needs to exist to maintain the current mode of play while making FH2 unique in the Eastern front. Otherwise, once you've played Vossenack, Totalize and the like, you've played the Eastern front.

AND I think we have just one major update to finally include any missing Normandy battles we think worth exploring, and more Bulge maps like Foy. After that, I imagine suggestions upon suggestions coming out for moar and moar Eastern Front maps and then Early war. It will be bad politics at that time to turn back.

You know that Wake Island is scaled quiet real? I think it's a much bigger in reality but all in all it looks the same as in BF2/in FH2 WaW. It is just an island in the middle of nowhere. Just use google and you will see.

Yeah. In this case you are right. But If you consider, that the whole area is around 17 square kilometre in reality and we have a max size of 4 in BF, then we have to make compromises. Ofcourse a FH2 version of Wake would need alot of work, but I am still dreaming ...  ;D

In bf2 we have a max size of 4km long map which result in 16km2, am I right? And according to Wikipedia Wake Island has 7.38 km2 so it is possible to make it 1:1 scale map or really close to 1:1 but gameplay on such thing should be different from vbf and from what we remember from bf1942 to make sense and be fun...  ;)

We do not hate ships, we do not bear any life-long hate for ships. And I'm not really quite sure where you got the idea that we not only hate ships, but bear life-long hatred towards them.. I can relate it to the fact that we don't have ships in FH2 yet, but that's only due to us not having released those yet.

Fact is that we've already spent some time working on ships, some very long time ago (around a similar time as when we didn't release that leaked U-Boat video on youtube..) and re-visited perhaps a year ago or so. The thing is that we don't like our options on how ships work in BF2, we would have to look at compromises to make it work in a way where everybody is happy with it and with everything else going on, we haven't put any focus on it until perhaps when we'd reach the pacific, where they should play a large role in.

It just makes me sad that you think we hate ships just because we haven't implemented them in a way we like yet, or gotten around on finishing it. We don't hate, we love! :'(

HAHA! Joe.

You crack me up. Ok, fine, you guys don't hate ships. But the avenue for them coming in a format you may accept already exist. But I will elaborate this in another thread - Might have to dig up some old dusty 'Pacific/ ships thread' but still...


@Wilhelm
More like Forgotten Hope 3 or Forgotten Hope [Put Engine Name Here]

For me, I'd keep my eyes on 1944 Operation Overlord.. you know, that game that promises to give you real time WWII... Well, it'd probably not work, but the engine may have something we like.

All I'd want to see for the next FH, or it wont justify a migration is:
Total internals for vehicles and armor.
Ability to move in and around the inside of a tank,
proximity communication either by quick comm or VoIP, engine kill,
Garand mid-clip reload
All magazined-guns mid-clip single bullets reload
Up to 512 player maps
Complete and realistic environment destruction, including ability to create craters, etc
Ability to completely determine damage of various weapons to allow the conical damage area for grenades.
Multiple ammunition for weapon 0 i.e firing with bayonets.
Random faces and clothing for EACH player
dismemberment, visible blood damage and animated death that is taken over by ragdoll physics.
Modular destruction of vehicles.
Ability to mount LMGs on any surface that allows you to aim over and fire.
Graphics that allow for knee length coats.
Ability to pick up single weapons, rather than kits, so you can customize what you have on you.

Anything less, and we're better of staying right here.
Once those are in, I see No-o reason NOT to migrate  8)

No, I get that. But it takes 5 seconds to run its width across each arm.. Not sure that will work if you want a Fh2 version. It feels too much like a battle arena at that size than a battlefield that was.

Yeah. In this case you are right. But If you consider, that the whole area is around 17 square kilometre in reality and we have a max size of 4 in BF, then we have to make compromises. Ofcourse a FH2 version of Wake would need alot of work, but I am still dreaming ...  ;D

we need just a remake of the FHSW Iwo Jima Day 1... there will be a lot of party underground tunnel/bunker fights, and sudden Japanese squad with katanas charging to your flanks...  **dreams** ...until a flamethrower guy come and ruin the day by TKing all his teammates.

Lol, we have been through this before Lightning. I know where Keren is, but for the sake of simplicity and association with our existing theatres, it is best to relate the Battle of Keren to our existing North African campaign maps. (unless you want to promise a NEW East African theatre, and you surely do not)

 For those who wish to know, Keren is an ancient province of the Kingdom of Ethiopia (During WW2 it was still Ethiopian, under the control of the Italian's, but is now part of Eritrea).

- IS 2

HOWEVER, seeing that there were so much changes to stuff on current maps i think that stuff will be released
- Bishop

- Luger etc.

but im bad at guessing anyways

actually people should know how a patch is released.
It starts 1,5 month before with showing maps, and then 3 weeks before with Road to 2.XX 1, 2, 3. So that everyone is informed, not only the "nerds" that live in this forums :D
So you really think we get a patch out of nothing?

follow this to change vehicles in fh2 maps in singleplayer:

C:/programm files/EA GAMES/Battlefield 2/mods/fh2

then open the objects_vehicles_server.zip or objects_vehicles_client.zip, then look for the vehicle's name, example: vehicles/land/US/(copy or write the name excactly of vehicle, excample: M26_Pershing).
After this open the map you want to put it into, example: fh2/levels/(map name, excample: alam_halfa) and open server.zip/gamemodes/sp3/64/gameplayobjects.con with notebook. (please back-up this file)
Look for something like this:

ObjectTemplate.setObjectTemplate 2 m3grant

And change it into

ObjectTemplate.setObjectTemplate 2 M26_Pershing


If you can't save  or open the file start with dragging the gameplayobjects.con out of the zip file, then change the last 3 letters from .con to .txt and save it, after this follow the steps above and at last drag it back to the location in the zip file and save it.

After this you can play, but sometimes the system crashes to desktop, this is probably the problem the vehicle isn't finished or hasn't got an ai file, you can't do much more then.


I hope this informs you well enough.

 :o bangalores... and the ever so sweet word upcoming along with it.

I few weeks ago, I spoted a map called "test map" on the test server, must be a map about a super-hyper-top secret operation of ww2, as you cant find anything about operation "test map" on the internet.

The researches have done a great job!

I made that pic with a lot of help from FatJoe. There will probably be more in the future as the release draws closer.

That's weird. Look into your Forgottenhp2 folder under documents. There is a folder called LogoCache in there and in there the pics are usually stored under xfh2.infihada.com

So lets up this thread again and speculate about stuff in the new patch.

I'll start with maps:
- Keren (confirmed)
- St. Vith (confirmed)
- There must be at least one map with Americans in North Africa
- Apparently Puffendorf, St. Mere Eglise & Gold Beach have been spotted on test servers..

Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: djinn on 19-03-2012, 18:03:53
Already mentioned many patches back. Overlord is just a test map, NOT a map in development.
Sadly, no conspiracy here.


One of the things on that list has already come true though hasn't it? And the first is at least partly the case.
Keren was shown as was St. Vith. That's italian and also Bulge, no?

I guess our processes are now too airtight, huh?  ;D

I'm sure the keen minds will pick up a bone in the next couple of weeks.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Oberst on 19-03-2012, 18:03:08
Atleast overlord could mean anything. I dont think 4 years back in time is the same as it is now.

Expect the unexpected. The Devs are more nasty than years ago, atleast I feel so. Short (with that I mean still months) before a release, you dont see the maps, which make it for the release build on the server. Suddenly there comes an unexpected map out of nowhere.
Thats why I expect something like st mere eglise with airbourne troops and parachuting out of AI-planes, nobody would expect that.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: djinn on 19-03-2012, 18:03:06
True...

And I notice that people don't scrutinize media the devs show as much as they used to. Especially when the devs showing screenshots and videos right off the maps without removing conspiracy elements first.

Monitoring test server is one thing, but there are ALOT of sources for free-flying data.
Keep your ears to the ground, boys :)

I just looked in past updated and saw Horsa glider, german flare gun, banglore, churchill AVRE, LCVP, and an pershing is in the files from which I shown earlier also an flyable C47 in is the files too, so very likely we can see an paratrooper map and an beach map in the future and maybe also an 1945 Germany map for the pershing use or even alpenfestung 2.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Kelmola on 19-03-2012, 20:03:39
If anything, the devs are more devious now. What is that elusive Test Map A? It could be a test map as the name implies, but then again, it could be some map they want to remain as a complete surprise until the day of "The Road to Forgotten Hope 2.45". ;D
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Ts4EVER on 19-03-2012, 20:03:53
It is another map. Testmap B is St. Vith (now renamed after it was shown on the website)
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Master_of_Pain_25 on 19-03-2012, 22:03:19

I made those trading cards. Azreal posted them late at night on 1st April and wanted to make it look like a leak, but everyone was asleept already. This is how I wanted to post them:

Quote
Hello and welcome to another update of Forgotten Hope 2
Since 2.4 was released, we took a good, long look at the mod and decided something was missing:
Money
That's right, we will no longer keep doing this without some proper pay-off. I mean, who are we, the salvation army? It is time you deadbeats ont he public forum started pulling your weight around ehre. Sadly, the terms of use for BF2 preclude us from making any money with a product using the engine. Luckily we thought of a solution during a particularly long blackout. We present you:

THE OFFICIAL FORGOTTEN HOPE 2 TRADING CARD GAME (TM)

(http://www.abload.de/img/volksgrenadierdjj2b.jpg)
(http://www.abload.de/img/shermanwyjtw.jpg)

That's right: Soon you will be able to play Forgotten Hope 2 without contributing to global warming! All you need to do is purchase one of two attractive starter kits (either "AXIS STEEL (TM)" or "ALLIED INVASION (TM)") as well as the 1490 page rulebook (in colour!) and you are good to go! Gather your friends and family for hours of card playing fun. Feel the excitement as your Kingtiger tank rumbles down the streets of Bastogne (disclaimer: streets or rumbling not included). Feel the rush of finally meeting a spawn camper face to face and breaking his fingers with the FORGOTTEN HOPE 2 BASEBALL BAT (TM) (sold separately).

(http://www.abload.de/img/mg42yajac.jpg)

(http://www.abload.de/img/flare4qkkt.jpg)
 
Of course we don't want to totally give up our less profitable electronic game venture. In fact, the FORGOTTEN HOPE TRADING CARD GAME (TM) will be tied into our official award system. Each award can be redeemed for one of our extra  rare cards, like this one:

(http://www.abload.de/img/stg44zfo0jk1.jpg)

But wait! Before you send Lightning your cash, we have some bad news: The Forgotten Hope Online store is not online yet. Our monkeys are working on it, and it should be up next weekend, along with detailed price lists. Our online robot store clerks are looking forward to meeting you!


Obviously this was designed to make people laugh, not to fool them ;)

What's there to laugh about? I see this a perfect opportunity to get more ppl interested in FH2! Make the trading card game! NAOUW!

The church tower is indeed very similar to caen's Saint Etienne's Church (http://media-1.web.britannica.com/eb-media/49/5849-004-7064D7AC.jpg) and that map was no doubt made to represent Caen (it's not a real map, just 10 building and a church to show off in game things), but it is not Caen's church. It belongs to a different town.

Isin't there a town in west germany called Rhine?
or "Rhineland"?
Ah, you mean that nice little industrial town the French occupied back in the 20's...
Damn, are you serious? :p Surely you can't be European?

There is church in Cherbourg, another Notre Dame, that resembles the church shown somewhat. But I thought it was already said there had been a Cherbourg map in the works whitch was scrapped halfway? Oh and wasn't Sidi Bou Zid already more or less confirmed?

Interesting how? By typing each town in Normandy? Each French gothic church looks almost the same...  ::)

Edit:And who told that it must be in Normandy?
Edit2: Somebody mentioned Cherbourg - is this bombed in 1944 church - link (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbaye_Notre-Dame_du_V%C5%93u) But, it was bombed...

About the church... I forget if someone guessed this before but the one near the Vierville Draw is the only one I can find that looks vaguely familiar (even if the bottom isn't totally right)

http://216.119.140.139.static.a2webhosting.com/main.php?g2_itemId=2200 (http://216.119.140.139.static.a2webhosting.com/main.php?g2_itemId=2200)

also wasn't lobo's old omaha map (was mentioned somewhere) centered around that draw?

I thought about it and idk if those player models even matter for that map. Since it takes place in the winter I assume the Americans would use the same winter player models as the 101st in Bastogne?

would be a great remake as that map was always fun to play in FH1

natty's post in the 101st renders news:
I wonder what maps we can see these soldiers in :)

and another one from a thread concerning night maps
Pretty much everyone in the team looks forward to a Sainte-Mere-Eglise map where you jump out of a plane and fight your way through the iconic town with the church and everything. This is highly likely to happen some day :)

my conspiracy sense is tingling...

On the first page it says "Ste Mere Eglise" was spotted on the server.

So I don't know anything anymore.

They are probably in the "frantic testing before release" phase and don't want to spoil it for us... It would also explain the general lack of (beta) players on public servers and the fact that even the forums are a bit dead...

Note that this is just my tin foil hat theory and might be completely false.

 maybe, maybe not.

all it really says is that we can't see the Fh2 dev server.


 If you want real conspiracy, check to see how many Beta-testers and Dev's are on these forums when they are supposed to have testing sessions. It used to be on Sunday (noon'ish CET) and Tuesday (later in the afternoon/ evening).

That's your proof of development. Ideally, a release before everyone goes back to school but not so much pressure that the team cannot enjoy their summertime. Some of us live in countries where the good weather needs to soaked up before it gets shitty again.

But Hs-129, can we haz B-3 subvariant plox? A flying PaK40 would come in handy knock-knocking the heavier Soviet tanks. WHERE IS YOUR STALIN NOW?

Re the "501", it's probably the vehicle number of the Ferninand of schwere Panzerjäger Abteilung 654, immobilized (and subsequently photographed) at Ponyri during Battle of Kursk. Incidentally, this also tells that there is a non-Prokhorovka map of the battle in the works, probably indeed centered around Ponyri, "the little Stalingrad".

Naval battle!? Probably still no really big shipts put mayba an attack by Sturmboote at static british carriers!? And on thoses carriers you might find the swordfish.

I dont remember the name of The FH1 map but there was one on which you had to destroy a column of british ships including multiple carriers by stormboote, Ju 88 (and other planes) and Submarines i think.
the setting was at nigth and somewhere at the norwegian cost iirc. You knows the name? Awesome map!

Looks like you guys are doing the eastern front in random manner... unlike how we go through FH2 to FH2.45? The Western Front especially, when we saw the theatre progressing from Normandy and then to Battle of the Bulge.

mfw people only think of Crimea 1944/Kerch/Vuosalmi/other too obvious choices when I made a very detailed suggestion met with positive respone about combining riverborne invasion AND paradrop for Eastern Front, namely the Lower Dnieper Offensive based on 110% accurate historical IT ARE FACT CUZ IT SAYS SO IN WIKIPEDIA (also shamelessly plagiarizing an ancient strategy game called Panzer Battles)

Hahah yeah I once managed to fool a Panther by turning my turret sideways and point the barrel downwards, then drove up against some pile of rubble... I took that as an experiment because I wanted to see what would happen. I jumped into the hull MG and pointed the sights at a gap in the hedgerow from where the enemy tanks would come through eventually.

Then the Panther emerged through the gap. He saw me in the midst of the ruins next to a wrecked Panther static... I saw him point at me and I was certain he wasnt fooled. He didnt fire, instead he started moving towards me and then took a left turn, exposing his right side to me. At that moment I jumped into the 1st seat, lifted my gun, turned the turret and started taking aim. By the time I had my sights on his side, the gun was ready and I fired.

The Panther blew up and a moment later the driver told me that he was using the freelook and noticed that my engine deck started to smoke and my turret started turning, he was literally shitting himself but was too slow to turn his turret. Hahaa, funny moments.

Too bad that tactic doesnt work every time. :)
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Slayer on 11-08-2012, 17:08:21
A variant on that tactic is the "this Bren carrier/APC is empty" tactic, where you switch to seat 4 or something like that and duck down. I have survived several infantry onlsaughts like that, because they simply walked by me.

My APC tactic is to just bail it (so it's empty on the map), but hide under the tracks to shoot people. Only works with the American/British APCs, but at least you can be outside the Purple Heart Box when you earn one :D. Really works quite well, if people think you're near the APC at all they think you're behind it, and the tracks work well at deflecting bullets. You're quite boned if someone riflenades you though.

Wrong. Tiger P is a rival to the Henschel design that became famous as the Tiger we know. After prototype phase it was rejected, but some 90?ish hulls were already complete. So they built TDs out of them, known as both Ferdinand and Elefant.

Whats the difference?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: pizzzaman on 16-08-2012, 15:08:51
Stug IV uses the Panzer IV chasis.
Stug 40/III uses the Panzer III chasis.

Take a look:
(http://militarymodels.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/Panzer-III-in-grey.jpg)

(http://www.cyber-hobby.com/shop/images/modelkits/6320.jpg)

Same chasis.
Not much difference between the 40 and III.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: hyperanthropos on 16-08-2012, 15:08:49
Yes I know of the different chassis. But is there any difference between a Stug III and a Stug 40 or are this only different names?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Lightning on 16-08-2012, 15:08:00
StuGs on the panzer III chassis were initially called StuG 40s, because of the PaK40 gun (technically StuK 40) they used (at least the later versions F and G), but when the StuGs based on the panzer IV chassis went in production, they changed the name of the StuG 40 to the StuG III to avoid confusion.

So it's a difference in name only.

-Elefant
-Fernindad
-Tiger ausf P

These are all essentially the same vehicle...  :P

Wrong. Tiger P is a rival to the Henschel design that became famous as the Tiger we know. After prototype phase it was rejected, but some 90?ish hulls were already complete. So they built TDs out of them, known as both Ferdinand and Elefant.

And? I'm still right!

If its in the changelog it would be Panzerjäger Tiger (P), FH2 doesn't deal in prototypes, meaning they are essentially the same vehicle.

Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Steel_Lion_FIN on 17-08-2012, 08:08:43
F is the sixth letter in the alphabet. However the devs have said somewhere that Sidi bou Zid was testmap A and St. Vith was Tesy Map B at some point. Latest patch brought us three maps, A B and C. So I'd say there's at least three maps. Though the F could be there just for trollings sake. Or F for Foy..

Why do you think they are trolling? They need to name the maps somehow and giving the map its real name would only create buttload of silly conspiracies (such as the "omaha" test map).

Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: pizzzaman on 21-08-2012, 00:08:08
Ok,
So A-F test maps = 6 maps.

And so far we have 12 here:
-Stonne
-Prokhorovka
-Crimea 1944
-Kuuterselka
-Pegasus Bridge
-Ste Mere Eglise
-Gold beach
-Juno beach
-Mount Ormel
-Puffendorf
-Foy
-Operation Nordwind 1945

And ruskies arn't arriving next patch so:
-Stonne
-Prokhorovka
-Crimea 1944
-Kuuterselka
-Pegasus Bridge
-Ste Mere Eglise
-Gold beach
-Juno beach
-Mount Ormel
-Puffendorf
-Foy
-Operation Nordwind 1945

Now down to 8 maps,
my bets are everything except the 2 beaches.

Official word (via official news update) is this:

"In other news, we are still working hard to get the Eastern Front ready, and you should expect to see some more Soviet and German equipment from that theatre in the news. But we might also have a few other surprises before the Eastern Front patch. Keep a look out for some new scenarios and content in our current theatres."


And ruskies arn't arriving next patch so:
Not necessarily correct.

Devs, kinda. But I think you and I were both saying the same thing.

Here's something conspiracy-worthy. Just remembered this from back in June:

Now here's a good thought. I know the AVRE was designed to destroy fortifications, but it would be so awesome to have that monster for close infantry support. I feel it would be pretty balanced too. Slow, slow reload time, but kickass firepower and armor.

dont worry, i have better plans for that tank  8)

I know there's been some "Juno/Sword/Gold (can't remember which) Walls" in the change logs as statics. Mounting evidence for a Canadian/British beach map?

Sure, custom maps can make use of many unused pieces that are currently in the game files.. one could perhaps even use the Lightning (but I don't know if it's been coded or not, only saw the model... which might not even be finished yet from the looks of it).

Some things just don't have renders.  Others were never added, and hopefully I'll be able to track these down.  Some are FH1 ports (and reworks) of non-'FH2 ready' vehicles - the FH1 renders may or may not be able to be used in these cases.
any special reason the mosin-nagant was not included in the weapon section for the soviets?
Because I haven't made an icon for it yet.  This one (and the DP), might take a while.

-some houses look too shiny thats worth fixing,
- the landing craft should be Spreaded a little bit more to make the battle for Lungomare and Other first flags more intense,
- making the flag Hidden Supplies more dangerous, its not worth defending,
- making the castle more vulnerable to attacks, maybe with a tunnel, a destructible wall etc... Another sneaky way to get into the castle,

Tbh that was something different, they were moving onto a new platform, but it was still a Battlefield game with mod tools. There will be no more mod tools for the new Battlefields so that comes off the table and I don't think devs would move to a different engine any time soon. Or at least I hope they won't.

The mod tools for BF2 were made by the community, they weren't packed with the original copies.

Ultimately, by actively looking for this stuff, you will eventually disappoint yourselves.  You'll find something that an FH2 dev has made and put in their portfolio and think to yourself "wow, I can't wait till this is in FH2", and then you'll wait forevermore, as the crushing reality that what you found will never be in the mod grows ever stronger.

Also, you piss me off, because I like surprising people with stuff in the news.

To me it's not about if it'll ever appear in FH2, I don't care about that. It's just nice to see such stuff made for the Refractor engine, which can only mean there's a higher possibility of the model appearing in game one day. No matter when that might be.

I believe EU was saying that if you dig up things that haven't been officially announced, you're opening yourself up for dissapointment, as there is a possibility that it will not be added to the mod.

Devs try very hard to limit some information about what is being developed so noone will get dissapointed/angry when something they want and think is coming happens not to be included.

Not: "Looks like they discovered our secret models, 'eff these guys! We're not going to include it!"

To be honest, I somehow like all that stupid conspiracies but I am patient and rather wait for the news with all the details. Not sure if this thread makes things worse. Probably the discovery of the personal developers websites made things worse indeed.

I think I'm not gonna read here anymore as people will post the new pics from their websites all the time. That's not a conspiracy to me and takes the surprise away. Finding those websites was a huge success for this thread for sure, but I would not want to see new pictures from there all the time.

Battle of Kuuterselkä in 14th - 15th of June 1944 between Soviet Union and Finland.

After the succesful breakthrough at Valkeasaari, the Red Army advances towards the second line of defense, the Vammelsuu-Taipale line. They mount a large spearheaded attack against the Finnish positions and puncture a deep hole at Kuuterselkä.

A strong attack against the Finnish defensive line results in a breakthrough and loss of VT-line. A fierce counterattack by the finns is repelled and the finns are forced to leave VT-line as a whole.

Look what I found on PR's Forum:

Quote
Lastly is not related to the French, but news about a recent development with our developer friends over at Forgotten Hope 2, we've decided to trade usage rights of the No. 4 rifle with the SMLE MKIII* pictured above. Reasons being that it is by opinion of the team a higher quality asset, and (in the case of the sniper variant) can allow for the use of the iron sights even with a scope mounted. The Enfield will remain in common use with the Taliban faction, despite us implementing the Mosin Nagant series. In fact as BLUFOR, you might be running into both of these ancient yet powerful workhorses at the same time.

So will we finally see this also in FH 2, or the devs are still just considering it?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: McCloskey on 26-09-2012, 15:09:31
dafuq, did they slap the No.4 scope on the No.1 rifle? also had no idea No.4 with scope couldn't use ironsights :(

and tbh they are going to implement it, when I posted it in the suggestion thread, Lightning's response wasn't a dreamcrush but an approval, actually. ;)

Foy was actually a good few hundred yards away from the Bois Jacques, unlike in BoB where they depict the town a stones throw from where Easy was dug in.

But less geography and more conspiracy please...

Wasn't a stone throw in the movie. They looked through binoculars during the movie, remember.
And a fww 100yards is still in 88 range. Shelling with 88 at that distance will be inaccurate, but quite possible.

And they DID run quite a bit to get to it, no? In FH1, that distance was almost half the effective map.
I think the distance was reasonable.

Shelling with 88 at 100 yards is inaccurate? Dude, that thing had an effective range of 16 200 yards on ground targets. I must have misunderstood you somehow.

Eeehm yes. You say 88 is inaccurate at 100 yards, wghereas FW states that the 88 has an effective range of 16200 yards, which is 162 times higher.  ???
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Kelmola on 09-10-2012, 01:10:06
Umm.... 100 yards is point-blank distance for the 88, there would be hardly any shell drop (about 6 cm), if out of nowhere comes a 25m/s storm gust (for which the gunner has not compensated) directly perpendicular to the flight path, the shell will land a whopping 1,67m off target. Wartime manuals estimate that 50% of shots at range of 200m would hit in a 10cmx20cm box. It still packs 1kg of explosives and 8kg shrapnel, so this is rather negligible as the would-be target will be a pile of bloody pulp anyway.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: djinn on 09-10-2012, 01:10:42
Shelling infatry with 88 = firing a straight tragectory weapon against a wooded area with unseen infantry.
I'm not speaking of how accurate the gun is, I'm speaking of how accurate it was in Foy's instance.

I'm referring to playability as a result of keeping realistic distances and yet getting the effect in the BoB series.

We WERE talking about distances in real life compared to the movie... I was just using the 88 shelling as a means of saying, the movie may have been more accurate than it seemed.

it was a casual point, really not supposed to be overly dissected this way.

Official word (via official news update) is this:

"In other news, we are still working hard to get the Eastern Front ready, and you should expect to see some more Soviet and German equipment from that theatre in the news. But we might also have a few other surprises before the Eastern Front patch. Keep a look out for some new scenarios and content in our current theatres."


And ruskies arn't arriving next patch so:
Not necessarily correct.

says who exactly?!?
Devs, kinda. But I think you and I were both saying the same thing.

Do you have any info that they are?
Read the news updates.

I like this thread.
Must be real fun to watch us fall over ourselves trying to figure things out :)

I will say very good job with trying to determine the test maps pizzzaman :) A quite scientific approach to the ongoing investigation.

When you say really buggy, can you be a bit more specific?

We are of course working on a new version where we will address bugs along with adding some new content.It will not feature Russian Front nor Pacific though, and that's all I can say about the contents of the next version..

Before X-mas would be preferable, but we won't promise anything..

After 2 months, I rest my case.

Post by: Biiviz on 19-12-2012, 10:12:30
In the beginning phase we tried getting the Germans out by shipping them by train or by sea to Norway or elsewhere, but eventually the Soviets demanded that we take up arms and force them out. This resulted in what is known to the Finns as "The Lapland War", as most of the fighting took place while the Germans were retreating through Lapland towards Norway, utilizing the Scorched Earth tactic throughout. The entire city of Rovaniemi was burned to the ground, for example.

This was tough on both parties as we had been brothers in arms for years, and the Germans (not the Nazis) were liked by the Finns.

On the other hand, the fact that there hasn't been anything heard of KnoffHoff ON PUBLIC FORUM doesn't mean there wasn't any progress of his map.

Elefant=hull mounted MG for protection(late war)  Ferdinand in midwar doesnt have that

I was just a bit confused if we are getting the Elefant also in FH2.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Butcher on 06-01-2013, 03:01:19
Elefant also had a cupola. Would be nice to see the thing for a 1945 Germany Ostfront map, there were a handfull not fighting on the Italian front, south of Berlin if I recall correctly.

Post by: Turkish007 on 06-01-2013, 07:01:15
Also it shouldnt br hard to make because the devs allready has thr model and could easily make the Elefant.

Maybe it's a type of map that allies have to escape Malmedy with no weapons or ammo? That would be an interesting map.

Stavelot is a town near Malmedy, but not Malmedy. Kampfgruppe Peiper's route runs through it. A US engineer battalion and tank destroyer battalion attempted to prevent the Germans from crossing the bridge over the Amblève river there.

Stavelot was not the scene of the Malmedy massacre. Malmedy was the scene of the Malmedy massacre (duh?). (Actually, it's a T-section just outside of Malmedy.) The civilians massacred at Stavelot is a separate incident.

Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: TASSER on 31-01-2013, 00:01:03
Here's a REAL conspiracy for you:

There are three confirmed test maps. In alphabetical order they read A, M, and P. This leads to two theories: One is that there are possibly 14 test maps in development. If the code letter is assigned alphabeticaly, and P being the 16th letter in the English alphabet, there are 11 other maps yet to be officially acknowledged!

I however believe the code of the test maps is leading us towards something much darker and more sinister... The FH2 Development team has paired with the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and is being funded by a black operations branch within the agency to produce the mod. What's their agenda? The secret lies deep within the industrial-military complex, where elite world bankers are secretly dictating the progression of world politics... You want PROOF? It's right in front of you eyes... This FHer has successfully broken the code, and in fact, the truth is more terrifyingly simple than you are willing to comprehend.

BE ALARMED. What I am about to reveal to you will shake the very foundation of your beliefs. If you take the three letters of the test maps: A, M, and P, and restructure the order of the first two letters they read: M A P. That's right, map. Simple no? BUT THATS NOT EVEN THE BEGINNING OF IT. What could the Devs be saying to us? Are they in fact being forced to mod against their own will? Is this their way of communicating to us? Is this the beginning to an even longer code? What if the next testmap to be revealed is Z? MAPZ? The humorous spelling of "Maps" can only mean one thing... What else has a Z in it? You're right. Nazi. The Dev team is being held hostage by a renegade group of Nazis who are forcing them to continue to develop the Mod!

Now quick! Hide yourselves away in the basement and play FH2! It's the only way you can help the Devs! I am likely already doomed for exposing the dark inner workings of the Dev team. I'm holed up in a remote location with an arsenal of American flags, Russian bears, British bagpipes, Canadian maple syrup, a single French baugette, and half an Italian Lasagna ready to fend off the sinister Nazis. Why? Because those items beat the Nazis back in 1945 and the fate of the free world sure as hell depends on them now... (Well actually the French baugette isn't really good for much, it'll be stale in a day or so. And the Italians only sent half a lasagna, other half went to Germany before they changed their minds).

Sooo yeah... Bottom line here is that I thought it was funny how they spell map. Thanks for reading.

It would definitely pique Ms. Piggy's interest as a potential destination for her and Kermie's next vacation.

Those would still require a whole new set of Italian statics. Iirc the Devs have said that they wont include maps without proper theater specific statics to match. Even to the extent that Market Garden Maps would need Dutch houses.

Unless the Devs have been stockpiling Italian houses I don't think they'll be included that easily.

You guys do realize that no map needs to be accepted by the fh2 devs and implemented into fh2 in order to be played on a public server? So im not sure what all the fuss is about for the devs to accept maps or not. They are allowed to set any standards for their mod when accepting content. Find all the maps you enjoy and maintain a fh2 server, its really that simple.

Yeah then you can sit on your server alone and marvel at the maps. Outside of events custom maps usually have little shelf life.

If custom maps were good enough people would download them and play as regulars if any popular server would only have them in its rotation. Unfortunately, most of them isn't good enough so I can't understand all this bitching about implementing them.

Well with that type of mindset and attitude, yes... i would agree. However, all one would really need to do is gather the better custom maps mixed on a server with the more popular fh2 maps. Then have players interested enough to download those custom maps. Although WaW does events and during the campaigns use a private server, i have yet to play much of, if any of the standard Fh2 maps over there. Yet every custom map battle is a blast. It is possible, although highly improbable.

Really? So please answer me, did that happen with the custom maps that were officialy implemented in the mod? Did people play it as regulars in the servers BEFORE they were implemented?

FH2 devs gotta be more open minded... It is just like that guy that suggested to change the Menu FH2 video to another one, and a dev/beta tester said the movie sucked and it would give false propaganda to the players cause it had ships, did he ever dared to look at the CURRENT fh2 menu video that has submarines, ships, strategic bombers...

The Stonne map for instance is great, and with just a little optimization it would be FH2 dev standards i think. Warsaw uprising could use a little changes, specially to the crazy house placement.

 The problem is with the Dev team and not the players.

 We are far more forgiving and much more open-minded than we get credit for. Outlaw's map ports kick ass, the tournament maps have some real gems and even the odd fan contribution should be inplemented.

My PR duties covered providing you ingame screenshots of new maps and vehicles. I'm not a propaganda guy in any way so I have no reason to lie to you, hence so many "you suck" posts.

Remember one thing, if we would have so open minded devs who don't take so much care about details and high standards this mod would be dead a long time ago. It's a little bit like with religion, you know: "opened church is a church from which everyone will run away" according to one of polish sayings. If we won't stick to high standard there won't be anything special about FH2, especially when you face the fact how old this engine is and how limited it is comparing to new games.

Adding custom maps would require the maps to have a trule amazing quality and attention to detail in order to avoid situations like mentioned by Baskabommi. It's their mod, and we should be happy about the fact that it even exists. Remember, these guys use mostly their free time and don't get paid at all for doing this. And there is a lot of pressure on the devs by the community to get shit done, so it's obvius that tensions get high. So leave the devs the fuck alone and let them work at their pace in order to keep this amazing mod in high standards.

And since it's a conspiracy thread: the devs started this flame war here just to keep us occupied because we got too close to figuring out what they're up to.

My 2 cents.

Why not just make a simply vote. There has to be a hand full of custom maps the devs would feel are up to or close enought to their standards. Say they find 8 good maps, they allow the community to vote on 4 of them they would like added to the next release.  That way the community gets new maps, and the only work the devs would possibly have would be to do a few touch ups on the maps.  The key is TO LET THE DEVS FIND THE MAPS, AND NOT HAVE THE COMMUNITY SUGGESTING TEN THOUSAND MAPS!  This will just cause the devs to say the hell with it.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: LuckyOne on 02-02-2013, 18:02:42
The thing is "a few touch ups" soon become a full "run of the mill" in terms of time taken to fix all the issues of a map... So they might as well make their own ones and be sure not to make "beginner mistakes" most inexperienced custom mappers tend to make...
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II

Problem is that FH1 had many custom mappacks. FH2 doesnt have any... FH2 has something like ~20 maps where 10 of them are server killers/unplayable and other 10 are simply overplayed. You jump on the server you play the same maps at the same time each day... And when the server reaches the fifth map, it crashes and all "fun" starts from the beginning... In FH1 times you could jump on the server and play different maps EACH evening... People are simply getting quickly bored and stops playing it...

What's the problem, the devs are working as hard as they can, the mod is great, the people are (mostly) awesome so I don't see a big problem....anywhere?

I mean surely FH2 isn't living it's full potential (which would mean at least 2x more developers and 4x the player base), but as it is now I think it's far from "objectable", if it's such a problem that there simply aren't 100 available maps, why don't you start making them yourself? Or get in touch with the guys from the "modding" boards and make something nice which will be accepted and implemented?

I played most of the custom nontournament maps and they suck in many ways. In some cases these are gameplay wise issues or basic desing problems (by looking on some maps you can easily see that some mappers didn't even have a good idea when they started) Non logical static placement and lack of details are the most common problems, many bugs, lack of historical accuracy (even if it is possible to get without map specific content like statics and vehicles) balance issues etc, etc. It's hard to write about all maps together - some are made of pure fail and some are quite good, but even the best maps are about 80% finished when you consider amount of work needed to polish them. Small issues mean that devs would need to spent time on bringing them to FH2 quality, no one have time to do so and original mappers usually aren't interested in finishing their maps or just don't cooperate. When it comes to tournament maps, they can be great but only on tournaments where gameplay is completely diffrenet than public play.


Also: I found funny that most of custom map lovers usually play on low details and they bitching about implementing them when they can't even see difference between good quality map and shit (good graphics is one of aspects which make FH2 unique)
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: sheikyerbouti on 04-02-2013, 00:02:33
 Lots of the tournament maps are of the same calibre of gameplay (if not way better) than anything Fh2 has officially released. In addition, some of the maps we enjoy were created by pubbies (like Schism-RTVL).

 World at War and Forgotten Honor have long put out material that plays well, looks great and has sufficient 'detail' to provide immersive sensation. Their gameplay does not require tournament participation and the 2 tournaments, apart from bolstering a weak fan base, have also contributed ideas to the mod that prove (without any doubt) that Fh2 still has a long way to go, in terms of the maps, statics and theatres that the entire FH2 fanbase could enjoy.

eg: Fh1 map ports, Italian theatre, French Hope mod, NAVAL WARFARE!!!, static and vehicle ports from FH1 (proof of concept courtesy of RAD), etc.


 The biggest argument that is raised is the red herring of "Fh2 quality", what exactly is Fh2 quality when the Dev team has constantly changed members over the years. Was it Lobo or Rad's quality? Was it Natty, Gunnie or Azrael's? Mr. Cheese, Benseras, Ts4, DarkPepe, or Snoox's? I could continue ad nauseam.

The greatest issue to having public submissions accepted would be to actually provide a public overview and a set of expectations so that all potential contributor's could actually participate, which is contradictory to the Fh2 practice of protecting all materials from public release in order to prevent speculation. By not being transparent in their goals and desires, we the fanbase are left to speculate, when we could have mobilized our skillsets to contribute  (an example would be to hold public competition for certain items like houses, vegetation or minor environmental objects.)

 To all of those who question the development process, we must bear in mind that FH2 doesn't even test full servers and their Beta test group is far too small and over-populated by nepotism. Bear that in mind when we are given limited opinions from a very small group that dominates the conversation by being so-called 'experts'.

 Tons of us would love to be testers but one must be invited, so if you don't belong to an elite cadre, you are shit out of luck regardless of the opinions, skills and professionalism that we could actually provide.  (for example, I have professional experience as a game tester on 4 released titles with 2 separate studio's yet my past requests to contribute to the team have all fallen on deaf ears.)

 Russia was announced years ago, but nothing yet...  Finland has been promised, but nothing yet... a French team mobilized, but was shot dead...  Pacific theatre is never to be...


 How hard would it be to actually ask for help one of these days?

facepalm'd. you don't really notice the details, that's why it's called details. but if they aren't there, you WILL notice they are missing. it's like audio in movies, there's millions of various sounds your ears take for granted so they have to be in there even though you focus mainly on the video, because it they aren't, the movie sucks... and I'll take quality over quantity any day when it comes to maps, some of the tournament maps are just so bad I can't force myself to play more than a couple of rounds on them anymore because when you take the details out, you have crap.

Well this is how i see it.  Mapping is the hardest and longest process for the devs.  And there is a community out there willing to help, but their help is turned down do to their skill level.  If I had mapping skills I wouldnt try because I know my maps wouldn't get in.  If I was a dev I would encourage newbies to keep trying, even using their maps just to give them courage.  There are several maps in the game that have been worked, reworked and re-reworked and some still aren't perfect.  If the devs want this game to stay alive there gonna have to help the new guys.  The devs were not born master mappers and modders.  You never know you may pick up a new mapper or two and then they have a buddy whos starting to model and what do you know your numbers are growing.

To the devs, I don't mean to offend anyone, I'm simply saying what i feel.  Your doing a great job and I hope you stay with it, even with the community breathing down your neck.

 The Devs have made some shitty maps themselves.....

-Seige Of Tobruk
-Aberdeen
-Hurtgen Forest
-Gazala
-Alam Halfa
-Ramelle Neuville
(mostly africa maps)

and some great ones......

- St. Lo. Breakthrough
- Eppledorf
- Purple Heart Lane
- Bastogne
- Port en Bessin

 I could map in BF1942, but BF2 mapping is a whole different animal. I just cant do it.

 but i agree with Chad.....more maps are needed & if the Devs look at a custom mapper & require them to meet the current mapping standards to even be considered, then finding more help will be very difficult.

Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Surfbird on 04-02-2013, 19:02:11
Ah, about those shitty maps...Of course the earlier North Africa maps are kinda simple and have different gameplay than the latest maps. But it's an developement and I sometimes enjoy this simplicity very much. I don't think that Gazala, Siege of Tobruk, El Alamein and Alam Halfa are bad maps for example.

The way I have fun on those maps differs a lot from most other maps though. Nothing better than sitting in Alam Halfa crater after placing mines, with tanks just on top of you. But I know other people feel totally different about this and that's fine.

About this custom map discussion:

Generally, mappers in the community should not be discouraged on the one hand, but jan_kurator was right when he said, that many of them are too confident about their work. I mean, it's their maps,
they are free to do what they want. But neither they, nor the community should expect the maps to be in the mod then. I don't think there are that many people that really want their map in the mod and are willing to sacrifice certain features to make it eventually happen.

Anyway, if someone is really coming up with a serious attempt to get a map in the mod, it's the devs that should look if it has potential and work together with that person in order to bring the map in the mod. Give tips, feedback, things that are obligatory to be fixed/changed etc. I doubt someone who does not know the standards exactly is able to make a map that exactly has what the devs want.

So, cooperation with open minded mappers that know how to map is the way to bring maps in the mod. Custom maps are great for tournaments as it's fun to play something different. They also fit there because of other playstyle in tournaments but would do a lot worse in public games.

Because creating good maps for public games is what the intention of the FH2 devs is, they set the standard there. They have shown that they are good at it and in the end I also want to have quality maps in the mod, not half-worked out custom maps. What's needed from the devs is, that they are willing to give feedback and share their knowledge and I doubt they deny that when someone comes up who is open-minded and has potential in him and in the basic map idea.

And why should I compare group as a whole when we have maps with americans only in normandy and bulge, except sidi bou zid, which has it's own vehicle setup?

Foy? where?
in Battle of Bulge

On the test server
Maybe it was but there is no Foy I know about atm. I think that limit of Ardennes map is reached.

AVRE was used at the landing of gold beach, operation epsom and the initial assault on caen. They were used in support for the Second army.

The AVRE saw great use in the battle of the scheldt being the 1 Assault Brigade and Assault Park Squadron. Aswel as Ostend and Le havre.

The AVRE was again used during Operation Varsity, during the crossing of the Rhine river  were it lay waste to many german defensive positions aswel as providing other support the AVRE was supposed to do, like providing Bangalore torpedos.

Well it's not that a mic/headset is that expensive... I got a crappy one I got for birthday present (some no-name brand worth approximately 1.99$) like 6 years ago and it's just fine for the tournament... I'm not used to chit-chat so it's ok for the few acknowledgments and contacts you have to report during a tournament, and the few jokes you make while sitting in a ditch for 15 minutes with no action on your designated flag....

I was so dug deep by that Stavelot church static that I did some thinking: What map would feature Stavelot? What battle would it been? Why am I trying to figure this out? Until I found something quite plausible to be a map in FH2.
               
My guess:                                                 Trois Ponts

First, there was an actual battle there. and second, it's west of Stavelot.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1b/Map_of_Malmedy-Stavelot_December_1944.png)


I don't know anything about that battle but this is my guess of the church static.
      Or that the devs are just trolling us
So what are your thoughts behind the church?  ;)
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Turkish007 on 06-03-2013, 21:03:42
So some areas have specific churches? Roughest example; like in South of a country, churches are red and have a longer tower, but North, the churches are white and shorter towers?

If so, this FH2 map sounds possible.

So if we are recieving a "Stavelot" map and Trois Ponts is just to the west of it by some miles, why wouldn't we have both towns in one map? We have had maps in the past covering more than just one battle within it. Wouldn't it be more logical and less work for the devs to group up the towns for just one big map?


Well what the hell do I care. I'm probobly chasing my own tail on this one.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: CptdeS35 on 07-03-2013, 22:03:00
Actually, remember that planning to add several villages and tpwns on one map, make you use scale, so you loose historical accuracy, and sometimes some of the things you've planned on the map don't go as you've expected, for example, the bir hakeim flag on gazala 64.

And finally, Kraetzer surprised us with a nice gift: he bequeathed to us three Japanese AFVs, which were originally created for another purpose for which they are no longer needed. They are the Ha-Go light tank, the Ho-Ki APC and the Te-Ke tankette. All three of them were already in BG42 for a long time now, but in a much worse quality. The new models however are very detailed and nicely textured.

I wonder what the original purpose was?  ::)

Still, these look pretty FH2.

So, at first FH2 devs wanted to create the pacific, but then they saw the end is near (noo... noooo.. dont even think about it) and they gave up on pacific? According to this scenario.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Matthew_Baker on 26-04-2013, 23:04:02
The devs have made many models for many fronts mostly as proof of concept iirc, there was some Pacific front stuff made to see how boats, carriers etc. would work, a French plane, Rad made Ranger player models for Operation Torch too I think. Not all of them have been used not because the devs think the end is near but other things are more practical atm.

There are so many houses like this here around me, but that looks disgusting as fuck. I bet Russian immigrants who go from villages to farms would be clever enough to build an apartment near an apartment.

And guys, dont forget the fact that some maps can only be used as a testing ground, we cant be this sure about the map with lots of trees.

It is a joint project between schism and me. Since schism is a dev, it is at least half a devmap.

How many maps can Schism make at one time? Isn't he also making this map below?

I guess that is why he made the map together with me.

-We have received a mysterious image from Ts4ever two days ago of an image depicting a Lenin statue obstructing a Soviet town in the background.
(http://imageshack.us/a/img24/6447/promorussian.png)
The Lenin statue looks to be the same one from FH1:

Interesting. What theaters do we think are possible to do now?

Market Garden - We have all the equipment in game. Would just need British paratrooper skins (depending on what is being depicted) and maps.
Poland? France? Per the identified vehicles in Pizzzaman's post.

Or it could just be Jan being Jan :)

 Im guessing, due to previous release patterns and absolutely no inside information, that the following possible scenarios for 2.5 will occur:



1 - 2.5 will consist entirely of new maps for previously releases fronts + various updates & fixes

2 - 2.5 will consist of a combination of a small collection of Eastern Front maps & 1 or 2 maps for previously released fronts + various updates & fixes

3 - 2.5 will consist entirely of several new map for the Eastern Front + various updates & fixes





 I tend to lean towards theory 1 as i believe the Eastern Front will be delayed for a later date so a full 2.5 to 2.6 release can be made once 7 or 8 maps are available.

I think the new front referred to in that news update was Finland. There could be more coming, though the clues aren't really lining up.

Here is the original of the announcement:

In other news, we are still working hard to get the Eastern Front ready, and you should expect to see some more Soviet and German equipment from that theatre in the news. But we might also have a few other surprises before the Eastern Front patch. Keep a look out for some new scenarios and content in our current theatres.

I would honestly prefer that situation. The worst nightmare is an Eastern-Front expansion with a broken or not sufficiently worked out tank system. And by worked out I mean tested on public servers.

When u talk about fixing tanks, do you mean the penetration bug?  Imho, worst than that, it's the inability of some tanks to start moving forward when facing any kind of elevation.  It feels so wrong.    :-\

Post by: Surfbird on 24-05-2013, 02:05:55
It's the same for halftracks and even jeeps. It was added to make driving slopes somewhat realistic, but it's overdone indeed. Sometimes you can't move forward at all because of a tiny bump in the ground in front of you. Especially the halftracks are horrible with this.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Roughbeak on 24-05-2013, 03:05:24
I have noticed with half tracks and jeeps that when you move up a hill, you just need to wait a couple seconds to "take effect". :P
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: x4fun ODIUM on 24-05-2013, 06:05:42
Yes, if you tried to hold your heavy armored vehicle on a slope like that in real life, with the engine revolving and your clutch gripping, you would probably overheat your clutch and make it jam. But hey, it's 2.45, everything is possible ;)

We once tried to go just a few yards uphill in reverse gear with a Volkswagen T5 bus on a ski tour in the alps.
Well, we all sat in the thing, 8 ppl including snowboarding gear. Let's say by the time we got it rolling and going backwards uphill to the intersection we wanted to get back to, the clutch could be smelt very well inside the vehicle ^^. That's what I always remember when hanging on a slope in FH2 nowadays.

I'll say it again... Guys, there are roads on the map for a reason. Use them!
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Surfbird on 25-05-2013, 15:05:12
Well, it's kinda weird when you have to use a road while dtiving a halftrack being somewhat designed for offroad transportation and even can't drive up a tiny bump after stopping.

As Roughbeak says, it often works after a few seconds, but I've also seen this thing being unable to move forward at all, which forces you to reverse, gather speed and then pass the bump. Sometimes it's also good like that, because the slope is so steep that driving up it while standing seems unrealistic. Especially for jeeps and trucks.

But especially a halftrack should manage slopes without many problems, as the tracks guarantee it does not lose traction, but currently the situation in halftracks is the worst of all vehicles.

I sincerely hope for a German amphibious assault.

Question that can be answered by devs/betatesters/everyone "in the know", will the availability of MP40s, G43s, Fausts and STGs be greater/better than currently displayed? I mean, it was a big front and certainly had the priority in distribution of new and better guns than the west front, so will the limited kits be a bit less limited?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: hyperanthropos on 25-05-2013, 19:05:59
Pretty sure kit limitations are placed around balancing issues, rather than historical issues. The only way it makes sence in my opinion. What you decribe could be added via pick up kits if this better supply is a fact.

Yes but it will be used by the germans.

That map is not a map, but an environment made by sorken to showcase his work for his portfolio IIRC.  ;)

I found a song called french_tune in the FH2 map load musics. I dont think its in any of the maps, because I never heard it in FH2.


And more interesting is, there is also a Ormel_load, which is in Polish language. So as Jan_kurator said, we might see Polish forces in the west some day. I'd rather have September 1939 though, but that's not gonna happen.

The only reason you've never heard french_tune is because it's usually toned-out by explosions and MG42 fire.

 According to Knoffhoff's Dev post, Prokhorovka will be in the first release & set during the Battle Of Kursk

 also

It will be a 4km map comparable to Gazala - El Alamein



 Is this a sign that the devs are looking at future releases with 128 players in mind?

Oh man, it would be great to have Warsaw i FH2. But I believe thats not gonna happen. And the name of the song is Ormel, so its probably Poles in the west.

It's in the 2.45 files far as I know, it's just that whatever map it was planned to be used on was cancelled/postponed, most likely based on a naval battle. At least, that's what probably has happened.

Im not losing my right ball, because there has to be somewhere they keep their unreleased stuff. ;D because they said some content are older than 2 years, so there are more which were sone in the past and are being kept in a safe for future Forgotten- awesomeness - Hope 2 releases!

Post by: hyperanthropos on 16-06-2013, 11:06:06
There must have been some point in Fh2 history on which the devs decided to drop naval maps. So that is probably when the swordfish and the subamrine became unnecessary.

If you want to have naval battles join WaW or FlH. I remember the naval event that was organized like one or two years ago for the public players. Sneaking with the submarine through two engaging battleships? Was no problem.

This is certainly where alot of potential was/is unused, but you all know the problem: manpower.  :(

But what about the Swordfish? I'll leave the submarine out, but the Swridfish looks epic. Would it only work in a naval map? I really wanna see this stuff released :D

If you want, you can make your own map with the Swordfish and the submarine and the ships on it. Naval maps have the reputation of not being so difficult to make ;)

And the kidplane is just that: a plane for kids. One of the devs made it for his kids so they could toy around with it in FH2. Or so I heard, at least.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Turkish007 on 16-06-2013, 17:06:30

By the way, can someone make an only-sea map without any land or details, and put the ships in there? I would love to play with them in an online match, since now 762 has one of its servers for custom maps!  ;D

How many Finland maps are being made at the moment? The only map we are aware of is Kuuterselka.
As stated previously in this thread, below is the skybox for it.

http://fhpubforum.warumdarum.de/index.php?topic=14169.690

But which one of these maps is using that texture?  ???
Unless neither of these screens are of Kuuterselka...

(http://i992.photobucket.com/albums/af43/BGF-Kraetzer/Preview%20render/screen464.png)
These two screens above look like the same map. (I could be wrong here)

Then we have another, more green Finland map:
(http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/screenshotsfh2/news/121216/stream.jpg)

So by my estimate, there are 2-4 finnish maps being made/finnished at this moment.
That is all.  :-*

^ rofl

I'm not being critical and I understand things take time, a lot of time, but the russians have been been in development for a loooong time now, do they still not have a map complete? Or do you have maps complete that are just waiting for statics?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Turkish007 on 25-08-2013, 17:08:31
We have spotted Russian statics in Knoffhoff's Prokhorovka.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: titsmcgee852 on 26-08-2013, 15:08:09
That means nothing, it takes a lot of statics to make a map look finished.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Turkish007 on 26-08-2013, 19:08:21
Still, the Eastern Front has been in development for quite a time. Im guessing most statics would be ready.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: hitm4k3r on 26-08-2013, 20:08:02
It is not a matter of statics. The dev team has very skilled individuals who are able to pump out models quite fast in a damn good quality. It is the mapping process that takes a shitload of time and where the most help is needed atm. So if you have some mapping skills, roll up your sleeves and help.

In my opinion that's not really true. The development team needs statics modellers a lot more than mappers.

In other news, we are still working hard to get the Eastern Front ready, and you should expect to see some more Soviet and German equipment from that theatre in the news. But we might also have a few other surprises before the Eastern Front patch. Keep a look out for some new scenarios and content in our current theatres.

I have decided to make a list of ideas for what "new scenarios" could be present in the current theatres:

-More East Africa
-Maps featuring French forces/Vichy France/Free French
-Italian/Sicilian Front
-Battle of Britain
-Beyond Siegfried line into Germany
-Maps featuring Polish forces of the West
-Operation Torch
-Southern France/ Operation Dragoon
-Operation Market Garden
-Narvik
-Naval battles
-More Greece
-Airborne maps
-Beach landing maps


What are your thoughts?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Turkish007 on 01-09-2013, 20:09:39
Plenty of French vehicles have been digged out of the changelog as we all know, so my bet is on Frenchies.

But I wouldnt mind other scenarios too. Its a pity we arent having Poland 1939 though.

-More East Africa
I don't see them making any more of these maps. Iirc Keren was made by a community member and a few years later was good enough to be turned into an official map. I think a dev had some spare time to make some East African statics.

Quote
-Maps featuring French forces/Vichy France/Free French
I could see the French making an apperance, like others have said theres a bit of French stuff in the changelogs and I have a feeling the Devs/ French Hope map makers have been working together to get those maps up to par... I could be wrong tho :P the biggest thing would be French player models to do it right.

Quote
-Italian/Sicilian Front
seeing as the team is hurting for static modelers right now I don't see this happeneing as it would require alot of new statics. FHT has some good maps for it tho 8)
 
Quote
-Battle of Britain
would be fun, someone made a 4k fan map for it which was a blast. It would need some new planes to make it proper and not many new statics. I don't see the devs going there tho

Quote
-Beyond Siegfried line into Germany
Certainly possible and would be easy to do, just need maps

Quote
-Maps featuring Polish forces of the West
there are polish vehicle skins in the files right now. would be nice to see a Mt ormel map someday :D

Would a 1944 polish soldier need new player models, or just new kit geometries/skins?
 
Quote
-Operation Torch
Seems possible, but I think I recall a dev saying that Sidi Bou Zid was the last map featuring africa that was being worked on atm

Quote
-Southern France/ Operation Dragoon
That'd be a cool map, just need someone to make it. I have a feeling nobody's working on a map like this tho
 
Quote
-Operation Market Garden
I want to see a Market Garden map sooooo badly. Invasion of Crete style with gliders being spawnable and being able to be flown in :P Idk how different Holland statics would be from French statics. Maybe just a few iconic things would need to be made like windmills etc... seems like less work than a whole other front tho

Quote
-Naval battles
sadly I don't think we'll see a Rheinuebung in FH2 :-\
Quote
-More Greece
I think Olympus was a one off that took a good FHT map and made it up to par for pubby play

Quote
-Beach landing maps
I'd say Gold Beach is in the works ;)

Finnish m/32 by Krätzer. Maybe this model will add to FH ::)

(http://cs323722.vk.me/v323722292/8fb4/6YzqM-9Sdpc.jpg)

Idk how many tris this is but for a relatively low poly weapon like this it SHOULD certainly possible to add it to the BF2 engine with relatively ease. Might just need a bit of optimization on the model (or not depending on tri count and how the devs handle performance) Maybe some PS tweaks (idk what texture sheets RO2 uses that are different from the BF2 engine) it would probably also have to be re-setup in a different hierarchy for the BF2 engine. and could probably use the Nebeleihandgranate 42 animations by the looks of it :P I've never modeled for RO2 tho so there might be some huge roadblock I'm missing. Would be fun to see this and Kraetzers Pacific models for that ArmA2 mod in FH2 someday 8)

It was not just a summer break, things been literally dead for several months, not only for the summer. But now people are getting that much needed injection of motivation (not to mention all that precious time needed for such projects) to get the work done for next release. Mind you, next release is still a long way ahead but now at least there seems to be a future, which you couldnt say the same few months back.

The guys over in the development and testing team is doing grand job with the hands they have. If you have any sort of talents when it comes to BF2 modding and you can spare the valuable time that we all have only a limited amount of, you should definitely take a chance at offering any kind of help you can to those guys.

Playing the other day, I got a suspicion.

What if the devs are going to troll us and remove everything except the Finnish and African front? Existing Normandy/Bulge maps are just renamed and vehicles and some statics replaced (and in some cases, attacker/defender reversed). St. Vith will become Viipuri, Hürtgenwald will become Ihantala, etc.

No. Wait. Africa is barren... Lapland is barren... they are going to transform Africa into Lapland War! Bardia will become Kemi, Tunis will become Rovaniemi... How does shooting down Stukas with a Brewster sound?

What you said just doesn't add up. There are many questions and doubts I have about Malmedy:

-Was this a personal project for yourself/the public or was it aimed for the mod?
-Why on one pic of the map the minimap shows but on the others they are covered- looking at the minimap, it doesn't really show much of the map, so why cover the other ones?
-Lastly, if this map was for the mod, are you testing it with the tournaments?

Sorry for all the questions, it just seems odd you openly announced your map, instead of keeping it a secret..

It was always my dream to have a map in the mod, however, that takes practice and lots of maps that dont make it. This was one of the maps I made internally to practice and show off some skills. Maybe it will end up in the mod some day, although it would need some custom models.

(http://imageshack.us/scaled/thumb/822/iaxd.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/822/iaxd.jpg/)

This is the minimap.
It plays in the very early morning hours of December 21 1944 near Malmedy. The 150th Pazer Brigade, equipped with Panthers and Stugs modified to look like US vehicles attacks US forces with the intent of capturing Malmedy and the important cross roads there. In reality the assault was stopped by US artillery at the train dam after the early morning fog lifted.

(http://balagan.info/wp-content/images/war/crossfire/scenarios/malmedy/malmedy_PzV.jpg)

This is one of the fake M10 Panthers. The chimney in the background belongs to the Paper Factory, which is also ingame.

I made three game modes for it. For 64 players it can either be played in objective or sector push mode. In both modes the map is an infantry heavy "meatgrinder" type map, but with an emphasis on long range combat. The Germans will need to use their tanks to full effect in order to break though the American lines.

For 16 players there is a king of the hill mode where you fight for malmedy church.

I finished the map to teach me techniques like texturing, color correction, advanced lightmapping etc.

Some time ago I was approached by someone from Forgotten Honor because they needed maps for their Bulge campaign, so I gave it to them. I dont think it would work well in a tournament setting due to its meat grinder design, so I'm sure they will modify it heavily.

TS that map sounds awesome from a situation point of view. The thought of an FH map with modified/ deceptive equipment sounds awesome. 8) I'd love to see how it plays out and if it could be worked for the actual mod.

When you say it needs new models, the only thing that looks different on the Panther in the picture is the sheet metal welded onto its turret to disrupt is silhouette.

Could that be done the same way the shermans in-game carry different equipment and loadouts? ie the firefly is just the sherman V with a modification in the file telling the model to have a different turret?

So it could be done so that someone just had to model the sheet metal part and not remodel a whole new panther?

EDIT: also a reskin of the panther & stug into olive drab with the 5AD-10TB-BCo. Markings

Well I don't recall seeing anything about this in the thread so far, but it's obviously been in the files since 2.45 came out. This thread has been a bit quiet for a while so let's go nutjob (like 'moon landing' conspiracy) here 8)

A few weeks ago I noticed a USMC texture for the M3A1 Stuart in the files. ;) which (to my knowledge) can only be used on one front. So is it the wishful thinking of one dev making a texture JUST IN CASE development gets that far? Or is there a larger conspiracy a foot! :o

Conspire....

Post by: Turkish007 on 19-10-2013, 18:10:50
Pacific you mean? I think the devs made some stuff for all fronts in the start, but some fronts got cancelled. Remember the conspiracy about the origin of the models Kratzer donated to BG42.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Matthew_Baker on 19-10-2013, 19:10:59
News updates would suggest that this version of the Stuart was made more 'recently' as a vehicle strictly for Sidi Bou Zid, and then Pointblank decided to make a Pacific skin for it for some reason. Another theory could be that Pointblank made this version of the Stuart for a Pacific front that was scrapped long ago, and he reskinned it when someone created a map it could be used on (a la Sidi Bou Zid). Another theory would be that the truth is something completely different ;)

Less drastic conspiracies: there have been Shermans and other vehicles with 1st Polish Armored Division markings in the files for some time. Mt. Ormel map still being worked on?

no conspiracies for almost two weeks? come on guys, don't dissapoint me.

Alright, I have a conspiracy for you all:

So after reading some of the book "The Blitzkrieg Legend", I have become more interested of the Battle of France in 1940. French Hope's "Stonne" was a brilliant and accurate depiction of the real life battle, generating a possibility to see it in the future FH2 patch.

So my conspiracy I have today is that what if the French are the main focus in the upcoming patch? And all this "gold beach", "Ste Mere Eglise", "France 1944"  are all diversions from the fact that devs are actually making France 1940 maps to go along with Stonne, since Cpt Bocquier seems to be inactive, with other duties. Think about it, in order to comfort the feel of France in 1940, it would require more than one map.

This all may be crazy, but what do you all think? (awaiting dreams to be crushed)
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: jan_kurator on 20-10-2013, 19:10:03
That's a good conspiracy actually but unfortunately Cpt Bocquier is inactvie on the internal forum since August (he's a beta tester) so nobody know is he still working on French Hope. Maybe that's the reason he's inactive, maybe he's just busy with mapping but I think that he would show up on the forum from time to time if he wanted to apply with his map. ???

Dreams crushed much?

Western Front AEC Dorchester could be conspiracy enough. ;) iirc someone had said the mappers were mainly moving away from putting commander assests on maps because they were useless.

The fact that they decided to put one on a new map (and take the time to give it a new olive drab texture I'm assuming) could mean they've devised a plan for commander.

As there is a lot of great things upcoming I will let myself to crush your dreams on this one. The big leap in development mentioned by Ts4EVER isn't related with gameplay, new models, maps or new fronts (but you can still be excited about those :D ). The "leap" isn't even a thing which will make a big difference for a regular player, at least not at a first glance. But it is a thing which affects development process and will make future work much easier. In the end it will improve FH2 overall in long term.

Because I know that you guys have traded/given things in the past so it wouldn't be out of the question... Besides, if there was anything that would've been traded/given, it would've been the auto-updater because it would've been shit hard to make from scratch, especially given that there isn't that much manpower left.

It's probably the only reason. He can't understand that for most people Finland is nothing more than a lot of trees and few saunas. From that perspective map is 100% acurate. Basing on my personal memories I would only add some mosquitoes to it  ;)

To be serious, map is great and it has one of the best infantry gameplay so far, just imagine those finnish and russian SMGs with crazy rate of fire and big big ammo capacity on both sides ;D but I can understand that Flippy doesn't like it. If someone will ever create innacurate map about polish 1939 september campaign I most likely won't like it (and hang the mapper by his balls on a dry branch)

Kuuterselkä in a nutshell  ;D
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Lightning on 09-11-2013, 17:11:36
Funny story about Kuuterselka.

During testing we got some very strange FPS drops that only happened when there were more than 20 people on the server. We figured (logically) that it might be a problem with the new player models, so we had everyone meet up in the centre of the map, but oddly, there was now no lag at all.

As we're discussing what the problem might be, the beta testers start screwing around and suddenly we notice the lag creeping in again.

Getting an idea, I asked everyone to suicide and come back with either a PPsH-41 or a KP/-31 Suomi. So everyone meets up again and I say "Ok, at the count of 3 shoot your entire magazine up into the air. 3... 2... 1...".

My FPS dropped from 60 to 0.5...

Turns out the little empty bullet shell models we far too complicated and 1200 of the little buggers interacting with the environment at the same time was more than any PC could handle.

I don't think that such things happen very often but performance checks on WIP maps are common thing and we often find random FPS drops here and there which need to be fixed before map will be released. The reason of those is in most cases different, though.

There were some weird bugs in 2.2 (Normandy patch), like when a Brit entered a Hanomag on PeB and then switched seats, the server crashed. It had something to do with teamlocking.

And there was the infamous Zwilling bug  ;D
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: jan_kurator on 10-11-2013, 15:11:53
Server crashers are the most annoying bugs. When there is something what causes crashes, server is running and we managed to join the map, there is always "don't use xxxx" spam all over the chat/teamspeak so we could at least check if other things work as intended, and then some late tester join the game and says "hi guys" making last warning disappear from the chat, unaware of crasher he spawns with bugged kit or use broken vehicle and we're back to square one again :D

Post by: Eat Uranium on 10-11-2013, 18:11:46
What was the weirdest/funniest bug that happened during betatesting?
The time during 2.2 testing when we discovered that the grappling hook was causing problems.  Basically, there was 1 hook, that was modified mapside for PdH to have a longer throw and longer rope.  The problem was that your client would remember the throw length from whatever map you joined the server with, causing people to be unable to throw the ropes up to the top of the cliff on PdH, or more hilariously, to throw the short ropes miles on other maps.

This was extra hilarious, because the server would take a second or so to work it out, so you would throw the short rope a short distance, people could get on it, and then the server would correct the throw to a far throw, causing mass teleportations.

This is why the grappling hooks are no longer on Giarabub (as shown in the 2.15 trailer).

Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Matthew_Baker on 11-11-2013, 02:11:02
Italians in that map have a hard enough time defending, if we have the grapples back.. wow...

Really? ??? There's only 6 or so entrances to the fort + unlimited recon class x 2 s-mines per class. From my experience, it's a massacre at every entrance with Aussies either prone crawling and getting murdered as they pour through the holes in the wall, or ignorant teammates wiping a squad with one run through the 'minefield.' A slightly coordinated Italian team can leave the Aussies sitting in their base all round imo.
The times I see otherwise are during 64+ rounds, when the sheer numbers are too much for the Italians and the Aussies eventually get a SL through. (after Stalingrad type death numbers at the walls)

Although overall I think this map is balanced and don't think it favors one team or another. Grappling hooks MIGHT undo that a bit. But thinking back, I don't remember a time in 2.15 where grappling hooks were ever being complained about as giving the Aussies an edge (but I don't remember them being in 2.15 tbh :P). If anything I'd think it might take away from the blood baths at the entrances and open up the map a bit more.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: jan_kurator on 11-11-2013, 09:11:32
Well, yeah. I'm with Roughbeak on this one. Giving grappling hooks back, no matter how cool they are, would make this map extremely unbalanced.

On the other hand, limiting recon class (just like on Tunis) could be cool. There should be more shooting instead of blocking every bottleneck with mines.

Wake Island nad Adak Island (on both americans defend and japs are landing). I don't know do you want other army than USA or GB that lands or map without them at all. If we're talking no USA or GB no matter which side they are, then Battle of Stalingrad. Also there was Anzio and Juno in one of (official) map packs AFAIK (Juno is D-Day map with Canadians and you could use landing crafts on Anzio and there were Canadians as well)

Being realistic I'd say that scenario is just another way of saying map, as Gold Beach is a new 'scenario' in the current 'theater' of Normandy that's been in-game.

64 player maps are 128p compatible 90% of the time. What makes 128p so great is that it allows high player densities on fairly big 64p maps.

About my own map: It's about an obscure battle in Northern France, I wouldn't bother with it.

^ I vote for Pegasus! A remake (with the increasing trend of remakes) would be in order! It's a relatively small map anyway, the only thing that would need lots of work to make is the bridge itself (or is it already made  ::) )

Or Eglise... But that wouldn't be a remake. :P

THE EVIDENCE

1 -Sainte-Mère-Église:

3 - Pegasus Bridge: - No mention of this map except from a custom mapper that hasnt updated progress for 2+ years



4 - Juno Beach:

First seen on "seen on test server": 10/2009

- Mention of Juno has haunted the change-log since 2010




It looks as if 1 & 3 have been cooking in FH2's Lab for almost 5 years now   ....hmmmmm


Im going with Sainte-Mère-Église.......bring on the Screaming Eagles!!!

Which remakes? You mean Gold Beach? It covers the same battle as FH1 map but it isn't similiar to that one at all, I would never call it a remake.

It was stated multiple times in the past and I thought it was a common knowlegde already but I will repeat it again for those who have any doubts for what ever reason: upcoming patch won't include eastern front. But well, I usually lie about upcoming stuff so who knows?

I don't see any Caen in suggestions.

 The list was spur of the moment, but i tried to only include maps that had actually been seen on the test server.

 I would assume there are maps the Devs have never spoken about or allowed to be seen, that are 4+ yrs old & that will eventually be released at some point.......

Am i right?

Is there going to be prone animations for all weapons in FH2 sometime?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Ts4EVER on 14-03-2014, 12:03:27
No, because they screw up reload animations when you prone while reloading.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Viikkasota on 14-03-2014, 13:03:40
No, because they screw up reload animations when you prone while reloading.
But they add so much more immersion. Project Reality has them and the screwing up reload animations part don't bug me. FH2 already has going down and standing up animations for some weapons, MP-40 being one of them and those screw up reload animations too.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Ts4EVER on 14-03-2014, 13:03:31
Yes, because the MP40 and Thompson M1928 were the first weapons animated and that's when they noticed.

My guess is they said: "Well I guess we won't need to do these animations anymore, but since these two are already in..."

Please add the proper crawling animations for all weapons. I just looks so utterly retarded the way it is now! Besides you cannot continously reload while going prone in real life either. That is just like dolphin diving and bunny hopping. Something that ought to be discouraged and eliminated by any means.  :-\

We don't have active animator ATM, so sorry, no crawling animations for now, but I think we can look on it after the release. I admit that it is an immersion killer but it isn't a game blocker. Also, disabling reload while in move in prone position is probably not possible codding wise.

btw, how was that a conspiracy?

Post by: Viikkasota on 06-04-2014, 18:04:29

Well I started the discussion about crawling animations and I thought that it may be somehow related to this thread because people in this thread are discussing about possible new things coming to FH2 and another reason, I posted here is because this thread is popular. But maybe I could have posted to the minor suggestions thread too.

Not a conspiracy but how much maps are confirmed or "almost sure" to be added in 2.46?

Hopefully it wont be like 2.45... No offence meant of course, but waiting close to two years for three maps, one which i absolutely hate (sidi bou zid) quite sucked.... Not that im that worried since im most certain i will love Omaha and specially Gold beach!

hurr durr map sucked because I don't like it!  ;D

You have to keep in mind a long development brake after 2.45 release but don't you worry, there are many WIP maps still to be finished and released sooner or later. I think upcoming patches will only be more and more interesting ;)

Soooooo,

Do you guys think there is the rest of the H39 Hotchkiss tank turret that is present on the Omaha map?  :D Or even more French stuff? We have seen a couple French content in the changelog, I should remind.

Yeah i know there are like close to a dozen wip maps and most spotted on those Test servers, im only wondering how much of those we'll see at 2.46.

Interesting to see that even after the Tsar Bomba (Napoleon Bomba?) -sized dramabomb and its fallout and after devteam's assurances that there are no American infidels in Baghdad plans to pursue France 1940, Stonne is still being developed and French content is still actively added including the MS406 (of course that can be used in the Finnish maps as well).

Kharkov - is this one or two maps because it is referred to as both Kharkov and Kharkov Outskirts?

Also, He 111. A sign of more medium level bombers incoming?

Dragon Fist - now this sounds interesting. WHAT ARE THEY HIDING FROM US?

Hold Ground gamemode? Wut wut?

Finally, should we already start calling 2.47 as the "Paralympics" due to Pegasus and Ste Mere Eglise?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: McCloskey on 13-04-2014, 02:04:11
He 111 - I bet it's just for map flyovers. Anyway, I noticed there's already a "jump" kitmesh for the Americans - helmet chin straps included.

The tracks you're looking at in the editor will not render alpha texture maps properly, ingame they look different. If you want to see it properly go to the modding section and find Remduls Meshviewer.

If you wonder now what an alpha texture or alpha mapping is:
it's a technique in 3D computer graphics where an image is mapped (assigned) to a 3D object, and designates certain areas of the object to be transparent or translucent.

Typical example are tank tracks.. they would end too high poli.

 You should be proud when YOUR map gets the greenlight & let the community follow along while its being made. You might .....

Post by: Ts4EVER on 15-04-2014, 20:04:38
The road to Omaha was a bumpy one... Lobo originally wanted to make it for 2.2 (I believe that is when the special bunker statics were made), but he had to leave for personal reasons. Then Mr Cheese (of Sfakia and Lebisey fame) wanted to finish the map, but it turns out there was something wrong with the heightmap, so he made a new heightmap. Then he also had to leave. This was shortly before 2.45 IIRC. After that, the torch was picked up by Remick04, who sat down and fleshed out the beach part so it could be tested. It worked quite well, although sadly he had included SPR style bunkers which stirred some controversy. Then real life struck again and he had to leave. Then in the autumn of last year I took over the map, deleted all unhistorical stuff and built the village and church area. In the final stretch before release, Stubbfan also added more details and he also coded the ship and made the tank turret. So it was finally finished  ;D

Indeed that is correct, it is also a technique to blend the sides of the road to your terrain texture, at least in CE.

It is Slovakia Prešov Region, Kapišová.

The remains of Soviet combat techniques from the time of the Carpathian-Dukelská operations are remembering the events of 1944. The aim of this offensive was to combine the operations of Soviet and Czechoslovak troops with insurgents in the Slovak National Uprising.

Part of the battlefield was Dukelského and crew 3rd Czechoslovak brigade, whose reconstruction of the original form is now freely available at the village Vyšný Komárnik.

I also have no idea what AT weapons the Russians fielded in WW2. There were the AT grenades and mines and of course the AT rifles. But other than a Lend Lease Bazooka or a captured faust, did the Russians have anything handheld and propelled? ???

Post by: Ts4EVER on 09-05-2014, 01:05:39
Russians had no launchers themselves and only received very few bazookas. They captured lots of fausts though and even printed a manual for them, so that is what they get in 1945.

No idea, but you can see the pointy end of the stick made to stick it in the ground, the shrapnel sleeve and the detonator above which is supposedly able to be connected to a wire or an electrical detonator. Anyhow, not a smoke nade. Right devs? Where did you dig up this mine, I searched and found nothing.

As promised!
The NR-40 (from Russian: нож разведчика, nozh razvedchika, meaning 'scout's knife') was a Soviet combat knife introduced in 1940 and used throughout World War II. The NR-40 has a 152 mm blade with a clip point, a large choil, a black wooden handle, and an S-shaped guard. The guard is "inverted" (unlike most S-shaped guards, it curves towards the edge) because standard Soviet Army grips called for holding the knife with the edge towards yourself (most useful if you are, for example, trying to sneak up on a sentry from behind).

OK, I feel obliged to defend my translation. IMHO, "Istrebitel' tankov" (tank destroyer/hunter) still sounds better and more official (even cooler, if I may say so) than "Granatomyotchik" or "Broneboishchik". Besides, we already have too many "-chiks" in the kit list :)
And yes, the term was used for AT infantry (all sources are in Russian):

Well, source #1 used the archives of the "8-й ОИПТ (Отдельной Истребительной ПротивоТанковой)— 30-й ОИПТА бригады из архива Министерства обороны СССР".
And source #3 was written by a reporter and participant of the war, so I expect some basic knowledge of terminology from him.
Sorry, but a collection of general dictionaries (academic.ru) or unsourced quotes from Wikipedia don't make the "ГРАНАТОМЁТЧИК" and "Бронебойщик" official.
One more thing about the "Гранотомётчик" - it is too vague and describes any soldier with hand grenades or a grenade launcher, while the kit is specifically AT.

AT stands for anti tank so anti char is not quite far of especialy when you consider that there are french tanks called "Char B1 Bis". Good point about Wikipedia though. It is not the good to rely on it only but to check different sources.

At the end it should be the most historical accurate term.

"... Если в уничтожении вражеского танка участвовала группа бойцов-истребителей танков, то сумму премии поднять до 1500 руб.* и выплачивать всем участникам группы равными долями..."

To be fair, as I understand, the quotes above are mostly about soldiers armed with AT grenades and Molotov cocktails, not with AT rifles.

EDIT: Sorry, I just can't resist...
On bdsa.ru, a rather large collection of archive documents, Yandex (a search engine, it's better than Google in dealing with Russian sites) could find:
"Granatomyotchik" - 16 pages
"Broneboischik" - 11 pages
"Istrebitel' tankov" - 248 pages, about 1/3 of them are related to the "tank destroyer on foot".

So if a certain word is the most accurate, but it doesn't "look like" anti-tank kit, I still think we should go for it. It's not like I know Italian that well, but when a player uses the voice commands, I know what to do without looking.

Garvant: For AT infantry kits I came with a head-on translation - "Istrebitel' tankov"
Now on the forum we have the argument if "Istrebitel' tankov" is historically accurate or it's more correct to name the kits as "Granatomyotchik", "Broneboischik" or "Strelok PTR"
My opponents are saying that "Istrebitel' tankov" was used only for antitank self-propellled guns
I'm throwing "otdelnye istrebitelnye protivotankovye" battalions and brigades in reply
Taranov: Танкоистребитель (tankoistrebitel') or противотанкист (protivotankist)
Garvant: As I understand, "Granatomyotchik" and "Broneboischik" are informal terms despite their usage in some documents?
Taranov: Informal

Oh boy, that Russian spawn menu makes me excited.

Are any of the carbines M44s vs M38s?

Also I think the wood on the full size 91/30s is too red.  That dark red color really only came when they applied the shellac finish at post-war re-arsenal prior to their storage in cosmoline.  During the war they were more of a natural wood color.

The barrel on the carbine M38/M44 is too long.  I am not sure if this is supposed to be a bayonet, though, as if they are M44s?  Either way, if it is a bayonet, it is too short.

If you need any photos of Mosin Nagants,  I have plenty.  I have 6 91/30s, 3 M44s, and 3 Chinese Type 53s (same as M44.)

I also have a Yugoslavian M57 and a Romanian Cugir TTC which are the same as the Russian TT33, if you need some photos of that as well.

I have a question for the Char B1 skin(s), Are there multiple skins made for the tank featuring different names (ex: Eure, Gaillac, Ricquewihr, etc.) or is there only 1 standard default skin?

Well 762 already uses their ranking system, and basing on the fact it's sadly the only FH2 active server, making new ranking system is completely pointless...

Maybe im wrong, but i believe all remaining ranking systems will have to start from zero after 30 of May.

Thats why im saying that having only one ranking system running on every server will be positive.

Correct me if i am wrong please.

PS: Im dont care about ranks, but most of the public players do. And FH2 needs them.

Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: nysä on 29-05-2014, 22:05:25
Aaah, thanks for the clear-up. It's a bit early for this... but I am curious how the Ferdinand will hold up against the heavy Soviet armor, like the IS-2?

According to some accounts, the Ferdie's frontal armor was "invulnerable in the front" and could take several hits from the IS-2 "without any effect". Being rather slow and without secondary armament, maybe this could be the balancing factor?
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: Ts4EVER on 29-05-2014, 23:05:41
The Ferdinand and the IS2 probably very rarely met each other, since the Ferdinand was used on the Eastern front in significant nmbers only during 1943, before the IS2 was introduced.
Title: Re: Conspiracies Thread Mk II
Post by: nysä on 30-05-2014, 00:05:06
That's true.

The example was from "Combat History of Schwere Panzerjäger Abteilung 653", describing a battle between the Elefant and IS-2s, dated 12 Jan/1945. But if I have understood correctly, the frontal armor was still the same (200 mm) and they only increased the armor on the hull bottom.

Ok I'm kind of going out on a limb but can't missiles be homed in a target in BF2?  My thinking is that the goliath kit comes with a pair of binoculars and you simply point at a target and click the goliath spawns next to you and makes its way towards the tank/vehicle you spot.  I would assume it would need a time limited to represent the cable length.  Any chance this could work?

Whatever this map is; the Russian main sports an IL-2, two SU-76Ms, and a Lend Lease M3A1 Scout Car.
Slightly overcast? or bright blue skys? (can't tell) obviously not the sunset autumn feel of Dukla Pass which TS said doesn't have planes on anyway.

So we are in Germany on the Eastern front in 1945. I can't see much more hints than in the picture with the Panther with this one.

I only noticed the 88 in that garage on the left covering the street (Or is it optically misleading and is in front of it?) Wouldnt fit into a village of 10 houses if you ask me. More like the town entrance to something bigger? ;) Also writings on walls only make sense with the respective spectators seeing it. With that first picture everything leads to the conclusion that it's Berlin, but other towns are still possible. Like, as others mentioned, the town of Seelow might be possible too.

Just checked something: (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i215/Schummi/berlin.jpg)

So this one is indeed from Berlin, found also another picture with the 2 slogans from the last screenshot being on one sign, but no clue about its location. I rather think you devs collected slogans and put them where you think it fits. Anyway, as this picture is kinda well known, I wouldn't be surprised if the map is indeed about Berlin. Especially as you copied the writing style

I'm more psyched for the Eastern Front than ever 8)

Could be a stupid question but it looks like some of the graffiti is actually on there and not just post-photoshopped onto the picture :P; is some of this graffiti actually on the map in the form of custom skins? or just a clever way of dropping hints?

It is on the map, like those graffities on the walls in Tobruk.

So history lesson time; I guess it was common for the Germans to paint motivational messages on vehicles and buildings late in the war?
