Sorry, but I don't see what the problem is. I know that FH2 had a limited developement team, and I surely don't expect them to be able to develop every weapon, vehicle, aircraft, and map that I listed if they do decide to add France to FH2 at some point. I also read through the Suggestions forum, and saw no mention of France, and I added lots of detail to this thread.

There isnt a problem. You are suggesting something that is really obvious to the devs. Asking/suggesting to add the french is almost the same as asking/suggesting to add the italians.

Also, what detail did you add exactly? All I see is a long copy & paste list (presumably wikipedia?) of whole bunch of things without much of detail on them.

There are already french weapons and tanks in the game  ;)

I know that there are some French weapons in the game, but why does nobody want to add France as a faction?

They do, one of the devs is french. They said, WE ARE BUSY WITH THE EASTERN FRONT, FRANCE WILL BE NEXT, JUST GOTTA WAIT.

Maps. Make a (good) French map and France will be put in-game. Mapping is probably one of the more time consuming process. Atm there are no complete French maps to be put in-game

How do I create maps for FH2? I would willingly do so if I knew how to.

Not just mapping of course.  Player models are another huge issue.  Animations for weapons.  Making the weapons/tanks and testing all of it.  Not to mention all the brand new uniforms/tanks for the Germans.

Refurbished French Hope maps don't count. France 1940 deserves a full patch, with a few high-quality maps, new tanks and playermodels. If only...

Finally, a Dunkirk map!

Whether it counts or not, you will be able to play it next month when we open the CMP campaign.  I think it has a French armored car on it, sans reticle.

Did you ever taught of making Meuse also as 1940 map -named "Crossing of Meuse" , french holding flags. Maybe stupid, and time-consuming  almost as new one
