The Battle for Qinling is a British vs PLA maps with lots of hilly frosty terrain that will feature mainly Combined Arms combat from jets to infantry all needing to work together to be able to archive victory on this map!

Briefing:
With constant skirmishing across the Chinese front lines, British forces decide to strike a deadly blow into the Qinling mountain region. Both sides have established air bases in the foothills of the mountains, and are preparing to launch a large scale combined arms offensive through this once tranquil region.

A Small USMC mechanized unit has been attached along side the British Forces as part of a joint coalition operation. The area has a large coal deposit, crucial to the Chinese war effort in this region. The stakes are high in this large scale operation, and neither side can afford to lose.

What is this black crater, some kinds of coal mine ?

And what's with the horizontal line with no/less trees by the middle ?

This map look really cool, can't wait to play it, but it's a shame that the rapid effect is so out of the way :(
Edit: Oh, just noticed the road going along it ! :D

Yes, seems like a fair question. Especially when such a nice static (the water movement) is off the (seemingly) linear CP design/placement -which makes the effort irrelevant. OTher than that, the technical detail in this map is fabulous and very artistic! Well done Rhino.

Now you see, I made a bunch of flag setup concepts in the begging of the development stage of the maps and stood back and looked at this one after I did it and did you know what I saw? BF1942 Gazala. http://intel.planetbattlefield.gamespy.com/Gazala_map.png

Thou still some bits are pretty diffrent, like the lake bang in the middle of the 2 flags not making a strait passage and stuff is off, I think this will work.

What it will do is concentrate the ground forces on the map into this area, which also allow lots and lots of room for flanking, choppers and jets.

I think you will come to like the flag layout more than you will for something like kashan ;)

1, spot on, the black crater is a open pit coal mine :)

2. that is in fact a clearing of trees where some big ass power cables run right down the map, looks odd via the minimap but looks gd ingame ;)

and ye, the river rapids will still have quite abit of combat around it, one of the main routs from the brit air base go along it ;)

IronTaxi
2007-12-12, 23:19
think the flag layout is perfect...doesnt need any more flags...remember the travel distances folks...id rather fight than travel all the time this way we can hopefully have very focused battles over each flag or group of flags...

Rhino
2007-12-13, 00:13
+ each flag is around 1km or more apart so we are talking a huge area even so for infantry.

This is going to be one Epic map.

Question. There will be planes, but what about choppers? 32 and 64 like Kashan?

combined arms so you will have both jets and choppers, aswell as tanks, infantry etc.

tbh we dont have quite the players numbers I would like but still think that we can pull of a good combined arms map with 32 players a side.

By the time you walk from that rally to the flag, 0.8 will have been released.

2007-12-13, 01:05
I love it. My only worry would be the lack of cover for infantry but I'm sure some ambushes will benefit from the trees and encourage some new infantry tactics.

Rhino
2007-12-13, 01:08
the Infantry will really need to stay Mech Infantry for them to be really useful but no dout a squad on foot could easily slip behind enemy lines ;)

Viper5
2007-12-13, 01:09
Yeah. The ridges seem like they could create some very sweet mech inf + armor vs. mech inf + armor battles over long distance. Will be sweet. Other thing I like is that because of flags in order to cap a flag you really need to secure the area, not just the flagpole because otherwise the armor is gonna HEAT your ass to death as the flags arent particuarly defendable locations themselves, but the outlying regions are.

The lake really should have small streams going into it with the volume of water leaving via rapids, if that water is coming in then it should have a similar sized river flowing out unless the ground is very porous. Either way it needs more rivers of it would probably dry up/empty, depending which way the big river is flowing.

It just doesn't seem right to have one river to it. The water level should fluctuate a lt if it does, and the village on the river side would not have been built there because of the risk of flooding.

maybe a good idea.. next time when you take screenshots turn your Anti Aliasing on it gives the picture a nicer look.. just my thoughts.. Reality nice map btw, cant wait to take everyone down with the Attack Chopper!! hehe

Rhino
2007-12-13, 17:33
the river is flowing into the lake, not out, there are many lakes like this in the world that only have lakes flowing in and no rivers flowing out and also seen plenty of lakes with loads of water flowing out of them but looking rather small and nothing flowing into them.

EDIT: AA is on, just not on full, these are just my normal play settings and as the Map is swill WIP, no point straining my pc, when its final i will shove my GFX upto full ;)

Outlawz7

Coal mine looks a bit bare, maybe a fence on some parts, since these sort of areas are usually secured, maybe some wrecked trucks etc.

Also new guard towers and hesco walls w00t

Rhino
2007-12-13, 17:44
the Coal Mine has been evacuated with the British advance, thou ye have thought about doing a fence around the perimiter top but that would stop tanks moving upto the edge, and would be a barrier for AT rockets / tank shells, aswell as the main problem as they do not join at all well unless they are done on the grid as the top wire just overlaps, docent meet and looks crappy etc :p

Rhino;549301']the river is flowing into the lake, not out, there are many lakes like this in the world that only have rivers flowing in and no rivers flowing out.

So there are, just looked on wikipedia.

I would still prefer a few more rivers, or at least riverbeds, leading into/away from the main lake. It just doesn't look right to me, there are large areas of land with no obvious drainage channels.

The pylons look really good, BTW, can you climb them if you get to the ladder which should be 3-4 metres off the ground? Just to look around.

Are the sand bunkers destroyable?

I love this map..

Is it as big as Kashan or way smaller?

Ok looks great and Outlaw i get your point it is a bare area. Maybe us it as a Rp spot and Hide a car and stuff up there, But otherwise looks great cant wait to play it.



And use it to make AA sites :D

well the nice thing about woods is AAVs love to hide in them. You can hide a AAV in the trees soo easily and just lock onto and shoot anything that flys over, and they are never going to see you if you place yourself correctly :D

indeed! ;)

but i think it would be nice if replaced the apache with another merlin instead of a apache coz i dont think a apache fits on this map, but thats just me

Edit: or maybe 2 merlins and 1 apache
Map should be abit concentrated on transport :wink:

the apache will love this map! with all the valleys, trees etc it can easily pop up from behind a hill, fire, and go back down behind the tree line like its meant to in r/l :D

2 merlins is really out of the question, main thing you need to remember is that there is unforintly only 32 players max on each team, so the weapons i have kitted out for each side reflect that player count, putting anouther merlin on would mean that you would use up 1 more player flying around, and as there are 2 merlins no one is going to be transporting any one as 1 merlin is more than enough for transport when already have the guys are in tanks, in APCs etc ;)

A Small USMC mechanized unit has been attached along side the British Forces as part of a joint coalition operation. The area has a large coal deposit, crucial to the Chinese war effort in this region. The stakes are high in this large scale operation, and neither side can afford to lose.

Hmm, what does that exactly mean? Linebacker AAVs? Guessing since British don't have an AAV yet.

correct, you must use the taxiways. I am going to be getting the testers to make sure over the next few days that it is not possible to take off without using the runways via taxiing etc over the next few days but all my tests ive done so far have showed its not possible to take off without using the taxiway to get onto the runway etc ;)

anyways qinlings taxiways aint like that, they are "razied up" to avoid a bug (not the one above) but also helps this problem too.

because there is only 32 players per side on the map. I have planned this mod for 10 players to be crewman, 4 pilots, 6 mech inf, 2 inf squads on foot / jeeps / using the transport chopper, + any other snipers etc. Now that is 32 players, as it is only 2 infantry squads may want to use the transport chopper, both can use it but shuving anouther transport chopper on the map is not going to help any one.

thats a intresting jet, never seen it before. Reminds me alot of the F-16 with its wing formation etc.

But for now we will use the J-10 as the Chinese fighter jet as its already ingame and it requires alot of work to make new assets.

I hope you have the "suggested team ratio's" on the description, so everyone knows how many pilots/armor/inf should be.

its the same for any map, you work out how many assets you want by what kinda ratio of diffrent types of gameplay and spread that over the player numbers... players learn how many assets are on maps and how to use them in the best way. even if you did state the amount ppl wouldn't dedicate ppl unless its in a toruny, large clan game or teamwork night.

Oldirti
2007-12-24, 18:09
It would at least discourage noobs from trying to take assets that are already dedicated to a different squad.
