Forgotten Hope 2 Mapping in Pictures.
« on: 29-04-2009, 16:04:45 »
"Samnadine" from the Forgotten Honor Mod made a Fantastic Review of some of our Maps and what makes them feel so natural. I think he pointed out perfect how many small Scenes and Love for Detail our Mapper put in their Maps.

I would suggest that every Person who want to create a Map take a look on this.

Enjoy! ;)

OBJECTS





No empty corners!



Tents with objects covered



All buildings have furniture inside, light effects are cool



Inside a house



Check the wood panel and sandboxes around



Defensive statics don't have to be really symetrical placed, it could be that they were moved to let a friendly truck to move in



Streets are not empty



It's fun to stay hidden in a bunker, see how many objects they have inside



How a bunker is decorated with metal sheets, all sized boxes, tents (even on the bunker), barrels and others



Usually this building is placed empty in our maps, barrals on metal sheets or wooden panels gives a good atmosphere. Sandbax on second floor.



Indiana jones has been here? this looks as an acheologist excavation



They digged in the AT barrier, barbered wired on front. But they hadn't enough supplies to make a big line



They make chairs here, beautiful isn't it?



You can take cover from every direction. Check the details of the tire next the boxes or on the truck. See the building's entrance



Cities have lights, 30' style



Soldiers make a quick and improvized barrier with some furtniture from the buildings



Cities have shops, you can buy bread here (metaxas knows what it says :wink: )



The building alone is boring, this makes it interesting to see. Barrels, rusted 'beds', metal sheets, camouflage/tent on the side with supplies under it..



Just a little detail. Always ammonition next to it!



Same than before



Nothing is empty, lonely wooden panel at the wall



Camouflage, wooden panels and sandboxes



There has been living someone here..



Mainbase tents



Airdrome details



Planes may have problems with fine sand



More tents, half platoon sleeps here. They have table and bench



Waiting times can be boring...



At nest



Bar, happy hour at 5!



Vickers



This looks like a real garage



Beach time... Italy has also nice beaches for germans on vacations!



Happy times, see also the plant!



Benches and bike



This is a city tree, fountain well placed and a nice old cart lying there



Fruit trees, people have jobs



Hide our AA guns!



Agriculture is really important, specially in these times



No empty buildings!



Armory



A park



They were making improvements in this room before war/battle



Check these wooden panels and the tent at the truck



Defended building



Harbor, before battle started



Truck, allies were improving defenses before germans attacked

BUILDING DESIGN


*  *  *



Walls and stairs nicely placed



2 ground levels, check the right side. Big fence and smaller fence.



Cool defense point, trenches combines with camouflated AT nest and bunkers



Use of stairs, arch and wisely placed buildings



More use of stairs. Check the light on the corner. Buildings positions are not symetrical, small street which turns a bit



Beautiful. The stairs and the fence on this stone building placed on a hill makes it really good looking. Don't forget objects!



Electricity cables are a mess, typical of southern countries (Italy), specially these times



More electricity cables. See the fences of that building, a little courtyard and at the right side a small street



Stairs and a combobuilding



Arches are important



More stairs, this is tipical in Italy, it's not flat and old towns are build like this



Original combination of buildings



Awesome use of stairs, walls and fences



sidewalk



This makes it really special, there was not much city planning in 'old' times, this is very common. Claustrophobic streets, balcons on the walls, archs and stairs



Defense nest, strongpoint with different elements



Better than above



Town wall, with a little fence outside.



Nice, isn't it?



More use of stairs and archs



Stairs and stairs



Coastal town and a passage on the beach. Benches and lights on the passage



Stairs and wooden panel creates a lots of options to go



Continuation of before, you can go in different rooftops if you want!



wow



Arches and wide stairs, looks like an important walkway. See the lights and the electricity cables



Back ways



Yes, looks ugly, but this is how they build here and 100-1000 years ago, different levels



buildings are not placed alone



original path



bomb crates, there's broken wood panels and trash there



Sand has been moved by the bombing, different color



A building exploted and some furniture landed outside



this looks as a main road, see all the details



Nice picture eh? guess what it is..



Stairs with wooden panels detail



Nice building combo



Arches and lots of ways to go



beautiful....



another awesome combo, no comments for it



same, stairs+archs+levels+well placed plants+some cool statics=fun play area



You can even feel confused of so many ways!



See how the bunker has been placed with the trench. Other details are added to make it more impressive



Actually this bunker design is really cool, but how the buildings with the walls are placed looks awesome



The other entrance lf that underground bunker



More stairs, arches and levels

LANDSCAPE


*  *  *



South Italy is dry, not that wet. Good example. Also see there are some bushes there



Ground textures colors



Small farm, old fences



Rural area. See the stairs and that little wall!



It's not always necessary to place lots of trees, a few of them well placed is enough for south Italy



Barricade



Another small farm



Same, fences, specially those of stone are common in openfields



stone mountains



another view



mountain road with a fence



nice picture...



it's not necessary to place everywhere grass



farm

Well, just to add that descriptions have typos and it's focused on the current Italian campaign on FHT, that's why some descriptions are related to Italy, same for landscape pictures.

I will keep this updated when I've got more time.

Thanks to all mapppers for their awesome results, I'm just showing you how good are their maps  ;)

Haha, I already wondered why you kept calling a Greek village Italian  :P
It is very usefull though, nice to scroll through and this makes you look at things you usually never see in battle. Like Taverna Toddel  :P

These are awesome pictures of awesome maps. Some of these static placements just blows my mind. A true inspiration for a amateur mapper it is.

Those pictures are hosted on one of forgotten honor's servers which is under maintenance for few days. Pictures should be back in when maintenance is over.
