OK, how about this ? I started this sortable list of maps because I started getting lost in all the different game modes and possibilities. There's over 50 maps for FH now including Forgotten Honor. Probably a lot more for MP as I'm only covering Coop/SP maps at the moment. So this might be a nice way of presenting all these maps on the FH site for people trying to select an interesting map for their server.

I don't know if this is technically "minor" but what about the idea of adding destroy able objects that affect the battlefield.  Something like destroying a fuel tank may reduce the number of tanks and/or vehicles one side gets.  Or another may be destroying a radio in a flag zone, eliminates the ability for the controlling team to spawn there.  It would just add another layer of depth to the battlefields.  The objects are not meant to be the main focus of the battle but could help determine its outcome.

^I've thought about this a long time ago. :) On a map like El Alamein for example. there's a fuel pipe near each teams main base. If you destroy it, the other team's vehicle spawn timers are increased. It gives people a separate objective outside of normal gameplay (special forces so to speak) and give engineers something more to do.

It seemed like a good idea for huge maps like that where a battle was scaled down so much. And back in 2.0 the gameplay was more arcadey and it was a way of adding depth to a conquest game. But since then, I think FH2 has moved more towards 1:1 scale maps, more realistic fighting etc... this kind of approach just wouldn't mesh well with a map like Pegasus or Dukla etc.. Idk if it would fit in FH2 anymore.

Just look how gameplay changes can end up when applied to maps it they don't belong. Good example is artificial sector push mode on Op. Cobra, or weird objective mode on Anctoville. IMO it can fit only a map which was designed with such feature in mind, I don't see a change to a tank balance or ability to spawn on a certain flag as a minor thing.

Could devs make a TK messages shows like a regular note about earning points? Now it shows only in log in the left upper corner and its hard to control. I dont understand why useless message that you're punished are showing but about TK itself are not. I would like to see a clear note about my mistake, my TK instead of looking at log after every shot. If this is pointless then I tender my apology.

Ability to turn off vehicle engine without getting out ? I know you can switch to another position but if the vehicle is full it's not going to turn off the engine. This would allow listening out for enemy movements, esp approaching tanks.

I have always thought of that. Depending on the map (Cobra, Goodwood) and when utilized properly, that would certainly make the advance more difficult for the offensive side.
But the idling and hiding under the trees works almost the same, especially with the low silhouette vehicles.

Could you add a "Thank You" voice command?
That other thread failed miserably and if you try to spam or flame here, I will break your arms.

No. There is no such voice command available in the BF1942 voice messages set. A decent person writes things like "thank you" and "sorry" on the in game chat, wherenever he/she needs to and it works like for more than a decade now.

And can we have an "Observe" order for fireteams, like in PR?

Did you even bother to read what Jan just said about adding new voice commands?

But the "Demolish and Mine" orders are without voices.

How about a panzerschreck and a suomi?

It is doable, possible, but no guarantees that a faust/schreck + suomi combo would happen.
