Making a team-simple map

I would like to see if there is any interest in making a "team-simple" map, like if the gamers and modders in here could work together and make a really nice bf42 map or two.

Or just use one or two of the existing maps as a base and make them a bit more modern perhaps. For instance one could make them "base-rape proof" if that is desirable.

Make map!

  1. Yes
  2. Nope
  3. Maybe
  4. f-off already

Re: Making a team-simple map

I voted yes. What kind of map could it be? What’s the theatre of war? I am currently working on Battle for Okinawa.

Re: Making a team-simple map

I vote yes too!
I think that is a great idea!
Maybe the battle of manchuria, it was a very unique  combat between ruusians and japaneses troops.
T-34 vs Chi-ra, seems interesting to me smile

I think I’d be willing to do it if I had more specifics about the kind of maps we’re making.

Stuff like the theatre of war, geographical region, time frame, factions involved, do we use custom objects or not, how big the maps are, the type of map (infantry only, tanks, or everything) and even the mods we should make the maps for would help.

Re: Making a team-simple map

Maybe a better Berlin map?

A big infantry map with some tanks and the Reichstag as last stand.

The factions would be Soviets vs Axis.

I dont know a lot about mods, i think the default game would be enough.

Re: Making a team-simple map

I know nothing about making maps, but I think it would be a great idea if all of you got together to make some new awesome maps.

I really wish BF42 was able to allow people to automatically download maps when they try to join a server with a map that they don't have. It would make things a whole lot easier to get these out to the public.


Crazy is as crazy does, and this crazy is getting shit done.

Your second paragraph is a very valid point, I think what deters players from playing custom maps is the games inability to have an automatic server-to-client download protocol. Unfortunately I don’t think the Refractor engine is advanced enough to do that. The best one could hope for would be a redirect when a client tries to join a server with a map he doesn’t have to a URL where the player could download the missing map, individually or in a ZIP.

The game would have a window pop up that says: “Map not found, would you like to download it?” and then when the player chooses Yes they are taken to the site where they can download the map in question.

Re: Making a team-simple map

How about one infantry map, one mixed vehicle map and one all-out map? (maybe one for plane nerds too?)

It sounds good. I’ll do it, but not right now, maybe in a few months, because I’m already working on a map.

Re: Making a team-simple map

As bud said above, I think it should be a map consisting of all 3 BF1942 Gameplays: Infantry, Vehicles, Air, and maybe a few boats thrown in if there is some water. I think it would balance it out nicely as a lot of people like to play infantry, but also like tanks, planes, etc... Just my 2 cents wink

EDIT: I would also be able to add bot support for it and pathmap the map as well, so people can play it offline or if they're bored

Re: Making a team-simple map

Would be great...

have to make sure people EASY download that map

(so advertise download link on REGULAR maps)

Also i think you should keep it pure cosmetic... just slap some SIMPLE textures around...

Or how about a XMAS map? Or is that too christian?

Re: Making a team-simple map

Come on people this is cool stuff... i would love to see a WAKE MAP remake or make-over. I am surprised of the lack of replies in here.

ANYONE OUT THERE?
