Community Map Pack #1
« on: 28-09-2012, 16:09:20 »
Like the topic says! =) Lets all gather and choose few maps for the first Community map pack! =)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Some answers of questions that i forsee before anyone asks them:  ;)

Community? Yes, as the fans choose the maps themselves, then it cannot be called anything else then map pack representing the community of this great mod.

Voting? Yes, the maps that are mentioned the most will be the ones that will take their place in the first Community Map Pack. You choose which maps will be included!

How big will be the pack? 5-6 maps max, to keep the size some what reasonable = easier accessability.

Will it be played? Yes, when the map pack content is finalized it will be online on VBIOS #2 Server!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, for voting, i suggest following system, write names of anything between 1 and 5 maps, like exemple below (Names of the maps here are hypotetical):
Battle of Mars 64 conquest, Last Samuraj 32 capture the samuraj, Braindead 64, Battle for Vodka 64 objective, Pavlov's Dog house.
Map size and mode are only optional, those will not have impact on voting, but will be useful for the server managers for sure =)

After one or two weeks time, i will count all the votes, annouce the voting over, and like said before the maps that will recaive most points will be the ones that will be mentioned most times =)

If you are unsure of which map to choose, or maybe simply forgot the name, then feel free to make use of my little custom map list thread. Names out of this list works aswell ofcourse, as long as the map developer released the map to public =)

--Current Standing:--
7 Points = Warsaw Uprising
6 Points = Battle For Stonne
5 Points = Bloody Beach, St Mere Eglise
4 Points = St. Fromond
3 Points = Sedan Breakthrough
2 Points = Monte Cassino, Carentan
1 Point = Berchtesgaden
1 Point = Kelafonia (Pending)
1 Point = Kasserine Pass
1 Point = Valkenswaard
1 Point = Blood D-Day
1 Point = Operation Dynamo
1 Point = Arnhem
1 Point = Operation Nordwind FH1

So, Place your bets! Here house doesint win but we all do =)

Steal? ;P I never really understood that way of understanding using something by all means to its porpose, and what other porpose have a map if not play it? Its not like they sold it or anything, people who made those maps that was borrowed should be happy that someone wants to play them instead of "Nooo! Its my map, and only i can play it!", i had a good laugh at that thread honestly ;P But, its old stuff. As far i am concerned VBIOS admins removed all maps that creators didint want to be used by VBIOS some time ago.

Thats it about the past :) Now for the future, it is mentioned above that maps have to be authorized to public use for them to be included. Which means, i will ask the creators (if their map will make it here) if they would like the map to be for public use IF the map is not otherwise released to public allready (most maps are) =)

Soo, dont be shy, out with it! ;D

I dont think you should call it official unless the devs decide to endorse it.

Apparently you do not comprehend the meaning of the word 'modding'.

FH2 IS a mod for for BF2. The process of creating a mod is 'modding'. Making maps (mapping) is a process most importand within the modding process.

Thus making maps is modding (creating content), and and this forum section is dedicated to modding, so this is where mapping go.

I dont agree with you, modding does not mean creating content. From what i understand of word "modding" is that it is synonym with "modify", which means changing partly, which is what FH2 did to BF2. However, making a map, you dont "modify" content, you use what exist in FH2. Okey, at some maps there are parts of minor modifications, but those are very small, and still require FH2 as their base, in my honest optinion calling map pack a "mod" is quite over of what that word represents. Becouse if we would call all maps modifications, then every map in FH2 would be their own modification... I also question your decision becouse, if this is "modding", then what is "FH2Tournament Custom Map Event #1: Italian Campaign Weekend- Starting Fri Aug 24"? It also contains maps that are "modified" in the same definition that you use to define this thread... It also contains a map-pack which is ment to be downloaded the same way this one is and then played... Well, allright, i know. You just hate me and want to kick my ass when you get opportunity, whatever, its allright =)

Lets just vote =)

My five:
1. Battle for Stonne
2. Bloody Beach
3. Battle for Stonne
4. St. Fromond
5. Warsaw Uprising 1944  ;D

I voted only for maps which I have already played a bit. However there are some other maps that I really liked and some maps which look promising, but I haven't already played them...
