Update the server map rotation. There is old maps too often in server map rotation. I'd like to see more eastern front maps in.

We do not run the servers. You need to go and talk to the server admins instead.

I will.

About the optics again. Both Marder III seems to have Sfl.Z.F.1.a instead of Pak Z.F. 3x8° (correct in Marder I), and Jagdpanther should have Sfl.Z.F.1.a. The insufficent magnification of Z.F. 3x8 was quite common complaint among the Panzerjäger crews.

I have one suggestion,
I read that heavy DAK artilery battalion had GPF 155mm mle1917 cannons used in Africa. So can we maybe get one instead of LeFh105 on Gazala? It would be nice to get it there as LeFH doesnt catch all flags and this would (long range cannon) and it has bigger caliber.

Also a nice touch ;)

Shooting with sniper rifle :
Include a "stop breathing" while pushing a key for around 1-3 sec to decrease "shaking" and improve aiming.
Maybe like in CoD2.

We have the model in game already (it is the French cannon used on PHD right?), idea sounds interesting, but I guess someone with better knowledge should speak. If they were indeed used during the battle by the Germans, it could be a cool addition to the map and it shouldn't be too difficult to implement such idea. I'm not the one to make such decision here tho.

I think it would need to be exported again and re-coded. So a good bit of work, but the model and LODs are there so that saves time :) ATM our export guru Stubb is busy doing lots of other fun things, so it would be low on the priority list.

Do you know what battle they were used at or by which division? Like what map it could be used on, I’m curious to know more

His suggestion is to remove the LeFH and place this gun instead on Gazala. So if someone could find out if it was actually used at Gazala, then I'm all for it because the gameplay part of the suggestion is good.

Yes gun was used during Battle of Gazala, I found it listed under Rommel HQ but I suppose they were mostly north (Kusten) . Kampfgruppe Menny which had one abteilung was mobile group in Italian corp made from part of 90 leichte Division so I suppose they were closer south to the DAK and main trust.
But as Gazala map in FH2 is scaled from huge terrain and includes both Italian and German, I think its still OK to use it.

OBB Axis- Battle of Gazala
Panzerarmee "Afrika" – Rommel
------523. Kusten Artillerie Abteilung (-) (see KG "Menny") – 8 x 155mm sFH414[f] How.
------528. Kusten Artillerie Abteilung – 12 x 155mm sFH414[f] How.
------529. Kusten Artillerie Abteilung – 12 x 155mm sFH414[f] How.
------532. Kusten Artillerie Abteilung – 12 x 155mm sFH414[f] How.

Corpo di Armata XXI
Kampfgruppe Menny
----3./523. Kusten Artillerie Abteilung - (attached) (see Arko 104.) – 4 x 155mm sFH414[f] How.
----533. Kusten Artillerie Abteilung - (attached) – 12 x 155mm sFH414[f] How.






And to conclude; I think germans used in Africa mostly GPF-T which is actually with pneumatic wheels and some more minor differnces, but I think it doesnt stop this type to be used instead. Its really same caliber and range.

Does it needs to be re-export? This guy made it half worked and said it has everything working... I dont know really

Nice research! :D our Gazala map is super scaled so it would fit historically as a nice Easter Egg.
BUT
adding it to a map may be more complicated. Idk where the current leFH18 is right now, but if it's got stuff around it (sandbags, walls, etc...) they might have to be move. And if that's the case, moving statics could fuck with the singleplayer navmesh.

About the export, I'm sure Stubb could say more, but if we were to make it a thing I think it would need to be edited properly.

Speaking of artillery, I remember I once found some muzzle brakes in LeFH 18 files. Are there any plans to create leFH 18M for later maps?

Ahh shit. I dont know also if any statics would be need to move, havent played Gazala long time, but if thats the case its bullshit. Cant believe how much navmesh is shit in BF2 world.
So sole size of gun, as its quite bigger than Lefh,wouldnt break navmesh but if you move static then navmesh is in trouble?

Still hope it works or Stubb manage to bring it to life

Gameplay objects do not affect the navmesh.

yea singleplayer kills me sometimes. us beta testers constantly ask for minor tweaks to maps, but they would be too much pain for too little gain once you factor in the navmesh ::)

someone come up with a script so that we can just click a button that says "generate new nav mesh" after making a changes and it'll poop something out that we can stick into the map ;D
