Title: What is FH2 needing most?
Post by: blander on 02-02-2018, 06:02:22
I´d like to contribute somehow to this amazing mod and community. Back in FH1 I made a few vehicle variants including coding, skin and model. I also tried my hand at mapping. I´d like to know what the community would like to have right now as priority so maybe I could work on it.

If you have and idea that is not an option in the poll write it here!

At first I wanted to vote for new maps, but then I thought about what is needed for new maps: new statics and maybe one or another new vehicle... Otherwise the maps look relatively similar, and the eastern front at the moment lacks a few vehicles and statics(as it is in its beginning)

Oh, and about the maps: the community maps(and I have seen all of the available ones) mostly are not that good.
I think the devs make a better Job at that.
There are some maps that I like, for example sidi muftah or el agheila, but if I think of westwall for example...

There are more mappers than modelers, so I voted statics.

Well more french houses would be cool. Right now all houses are 'fancy'.. more like town outskirts houses.There is no any poor people stone village houses,smaller ones. All village houses are pretty huge and cant be used easily.
 More french village stone houses size of eastern front ones would be neat.

Thats why when Im in editor working on village, I prefer smaller houses, but there only one small one and one which is not constructed made which I mostly use at the end. Village could get more ones.

Vehicles ,well if you want to make some,ask devs then which they need. As this community modding is not so active,vehicles would be too risky choice. Statics are always welcomed to devs

That´s great guys, keep it coming. After I have enough votes I´ll start a new poll with more specific choices to know what to work on.

I vote for maps.
But new and real gameplay map.
Not just a map you throw about a battle, with no gameplay.

Map with specific things (new faction, specific weapons to this map, special gameplay)

Again, creating a map is first about a good gameplay before creating art.
Creating static only come after.

Again,
when building a map, you must first get the basic setup and test gamplay. The statics and real art are only at the end of the map creation:
- 80% of the map take 20% of the time: create heightmap, create gameplay
- the last 20% of the map take 80%: create the real art of the map, create statics etc ...

I voted for statics because with unique custom statics, each map is enjoyable and has a unique feel which makes you quite happy. Maps with generic statics will end up looking like some CMP maps, and I don't really like that.

Most of what limits the devs from doing stuff like Market Garden, Southern France, Italy, etc, is the need for custom statics.  Without them, we can't get those campaigns and areas at the quality the FH2 devs are known for and are expected to offer.  So if you REALLY want to help out the mod and have the time and capabilities- learn to build statics.

This really. And I suggest to start with generic statics for existing fronts, preferably eastern front rural buildings similiar in the art style to what we already have in game so they won't stick out too much. Those can always be easily added to the game and used on any future stock (or custom) maps, so your work won't be wasted. Generic military object probably are good idea too, and if your statics will be proven to be good enough for FH2, I bet devs will gladly use a helping hand. Don't go for a battle specific statics if you don't know if anybody will ever create a map where you statics can be used.

I think what FH2 needs the most is to grow the number of daily players it has. But that's another matter I guess.  ;)

Voted for statics, wouldnt mind to have more  :)
