I am looking forward to playing this map. ;D

Oh, by the way, is there place for grenade launcher practice?

Cheers,

Looks good, will be interesting to see how this progresses.

Any chance of having the targets fall down when you hit them? :)

I wish.... I once tried making the targets destroyable, but that didn't go so well...

coding the targets to fall down (and possibly come back up) is complicated...

The BF2 mod "Operation Peacekeeper" also has a training map that includes a rifle range. Their targets seem to be destroyable and fall down when they get hit often. I guess they made the targets some sort of model with a "life bar" and when you shoot it too often it gets destroyed. The destroyed model is then animated to collapse. Kinda like the doors in PR which you can shoot open with the breaching slug from your shotgun.

Not bad, tank training area also can be good addition.

This reminds me of the training center map for Medal of Honor Allied Assault. Check that out for some cool ideas. The map was quite popular in its time because it had a switch activated bash arena.

before I make a WIP release, I need to get the minimap in (it's blank at this moment).  The Axis and Allied barracks and training areas are literally on opposite corners of the map.  I've also added cars in the training areas due to the distance between them.

Also, I need a fitting map description.  Something that sounds like a message from a drill sergeant.... something like "Listen up, recruits!..."

Yep, in the .desc file. It goes like that:

<briefing locid="Your description here.">AFAIK you can also put unlocalized description here, but I guess it's not needed once you have one in locid.</briefing>

well.... I have the tank training thing set for "Boot Camp 2", but was considering holding off on that until the panzerfausts, bazookas, and panzerschrecks come in.

ok folks, here's a WIP release of the Infantry Boot Camp.  Tell me what you think and I'll try to improve the map.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=L6HF797S

The Axis and Allied camps are on opposite corners of the map.  The only vehicles here are either Jeeps or Kubelwagens.  In case you're wondering why there's a huge space between the Axis and Allied camps in the minimap, that area is reserved for the combat zone I plan to add.  Also there's no red borders.  It's not great, but it's my first map.
