Indeed a good reminder. I always joined the server if they ran Omaha that round.
I'm taking my own freedom
puttin' it in my song
singing loud and strong
proving all day long
I'm takin' my freedom
puttin' it in my stroll
I'll be hop-steppin' y'all
lettin' the joy unfold

Why hasn't Omaha been mentioned yet?

Because it's still a lot played map in FH0.7.

Haha, I thought I only had a couple of fave FH1 maps, but reading through this thread is one hell of a trip through memory lane. Didn't fully realise before how much FH 1 maps there actually were in total. And apart from a few exceptions they were all pretty cool. It really feels like yesterday since I was playing these maps but it has to be more than two years now. Even before FH2 came out I couldn't find any decent/populated FH1 servers anymore here in Holland.

I really miss the jap-maps. Iwo Jima and Tarawa being my favorite. There was just so much to do on those maps: dug-in stationaries, ships, tanks, planes, everything. Really liked the map design for those two.

Pavlovs House is one that comes to mind also. Really surprising to see that such a small map could stay so entertaining. Loved the constant flag switching (it rarely stayed capped by one side more than a couple of minutes) and the teamspirit you experienced when defending the house against german tanks.
Have some fond memories of Karelia also. The victorious feeling when you finally conquered the little beach as the Finns...
The same for Battle Of Stalingrad . Sometimes it could take ages for the Russians to get a foot hold on the beach, but it was all the more satisfying.


Man, I could go on for hours, but I guess my preferred maps were the more specific ones (like Pegasus Bridge), compared to the more basic maps where you just have two armies go at it with tanks, planes and all. And the ones which took place in a sort of "forgotten" (or niche-)setting of WWII, like Karelia (or Zielona Gora).

Hmm, before I get all mushy and emotional, let me just name two maps I miss per theatre and be done with it:

Pacific: Iwo Jima, Tarawa
Africa: My faves were Tobruk and Crete but we already have those in FH2.    :)
East: apart from the three already mentioned: Seelow Heights, Eastern Blitz
West: Gold Beach, Arnhem (I'm dutch so there  ;))

Honorable mention goes to Alpenfestung. I loved that one because of all the experimental hardware. Same for Black Knight although I had the feeling that one didn't really catch on.


P.S. While going through the list of maps on the FH1 site I noticed that Sicily was missing. Was that one not an official FH map, or is it just not mentioned becuase it didn't fit in any of the theatres?



FH2 is the game, DarklyDreamingDexter is the name.

Desert rose
The Storm, NKL-26 ftw  :D  
Hell of Bocage

Really enjoyed playing those maps

Why hasn't Omaha been mentioned yet?

Why the hell would anyone miss that piece of crap ??? I left server every time it came up.
Great maps you suggested ;)

And FFFUUUU with Omaha Charlie sector. It was a terrible map. It was one gaint Massive german whore fest. Allies recieve nothing as support, the germans had those impossible to capture bunkers, Then All servers gave the Germans(above the pak40's and Nebelwerfers) 15CM Kustengeschutz AND Todt batterie!
That map was three times the whore fest of PDH in the beginning, but then the ENTIRE round like that.

arnhem, remagen

Can't wait to see what FH2 will do to Arhnem, Einhoven, Nimwegen and the Dutch landscape once we break out of Normandy.  hopefully these might be map specific battles instead of like combining them all into one map as 5 points

Rhienuebung.  and Iwo Jima.  When Iwo comes around, I hope that its actual size and there are a couple maps to make up the entire island, that'd be awesome.

This has been my wish for several years  ;D The FH1 Iwo was so tiny. Yes, yes, I know, it was as vanilla map. I just hope, whenever it comes, that the FH2 Iwo will be much, much bigger.

Oh, and i'd also like Omaha, as it was my most played map in FH1.

0.65/7 foy was nice but that longstretched map just replaced a real pearl.



Agreed...They should have just named the new one "Another 300 yards north of that other Foy map" and left them both.  ;)
