It could def be used on multiple maps for CMP. It looks much better than the FH1 port imo. The cockpit model looks nice as well. Just needs a bit better re-texture imo.

who made it? was it bought from a site?

I think the only 2 maps FH2 could use it on is Bastogne and Meuse River since apparently the Army Air Force didn't start receiving them until September of 1944.

It could be cool on Meuse tho since it's a semi-fictional map and the planes are meant for close-support ground attack purposes.

I think Stubbfan will be the one to talk to about this. Afaik, only the CMP could use the 'Invader' but the Corsair was made by PointBlank, an FH2 Dev. I haven't seen him around in a while tho.

Nice 'Invader' :)

M/21? Finland only had about 200 of these right?

If Cobra got a 16 layer, I think it should be an inf fight in Hebecrevon. The town is realy well suited for that.

The 32 layer could be a tank KotH. I don't think it's good to keep people locked in vehicles, but a big cap radius and lots of tanks sounds fun.

I don't understand the roads thing either. I think it will search for splines that aren't 'connected' or something. I just hit no as well

General Discussion / Re: Isnt it time to make FH standalone?
« on: 09-09-2017, 04:09:08 »
I'd like to see FH go stand alone just for the small handful of players it will bring in. But I sometimes think people over estimate what it would do; whenever someone brings it up, it seems like they think it'd be something that shoots FH2s player numbers up into the thousands each night.

Standalone would make it easier for people to download and you'd get a nice influx of new players. But imo only a handful of them would stick around and keep playing after a few weeks. FH2 is an almost decade old mod for a decade+ old game that also has a high learning curve and tight knit community. Its hard for new people to break into that and find it enjoyable enough to hold their attention over other games.

Also remember, the FH devs don't host this website ( & it's forums). And it's not advisable to host technically illegal content on a website without their permission.

as a country :P plus, a lot of the early Native American settlements weren't preserved, and so not much is still standing today

Thanks, it really is. America is only ~250 years old so we don't get the same amount of history as Europe. It's interesting to be able to visit remnants of these battle in our own country.

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

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

Got to visit Fort Sumter on my trip to Charleston, SC this week.

Here's a photo of the fort as it stands today;

It's now designated as a National Monument. Inside the museum there is a very nice model of the fort as it stood in 1861 just before the American Civil War;

Also, a 100 pounder Parrott rifle;

I don't believe these guns were ever mounted at Sumter during any of it's battles. I think one of them was used by Union forces in a counterattack later in the war.

It's quite an incredible sight to walk around such a 'small' fort. It's very different being inside the walls where 85 or so Union soldiers held out while being surrounded by the enemy on 3 sides. 2 days of artillery shelling and not a single casualty is almost hard to believe.

An interesting fact that the tour guides liked to share was that Pvt. Daniel Hough was the first soldier to die during the American Civil War; not from enemy fire, but from an accident caused by a cannon that went off prematurely during a salute to the flag. Sadly ironic.

Here's an actual photo of a Confederate flag flying over Sumter after it was surrendered in 1861;

I just watched it from Charleston, SC. The most incredible sight I've ever seen by far. Everything gets dark and there's a ring of fire in the sky for 2 min.
