Most of the buildings are down now, so you can get a feel for the layout of the battlefield. Hopefully this will be a citymap that is not just karkand spam, lots of thought has gone into the spacing and how it will play out. The next main phase is the detail of getting it looking like a real messed up place! :o

Nice, I love your map, really accurate !

What's that shadowy square in the middle of the fields west of the city ?

Nice, I love your map, really accurate !

Can you grab an ariel pic of Fallujah for comparison? I was under the impression most maps were just random and named after somewhere.

Afaik The maps just take the general feel of a place and try to imitate it as best as possible, after all we can't support the real size of these places on BF2

updated first post with google earth reference. Not exact copy but layout is near enough

I'm proud of myself, I found the location of your map in 10 minutes :)

You really had me with the reflexion for a while, I was sure it was a rotation so it toke me lots of time to find it :p

Anyway, what's that square ? I can't see in on Googlemap so I'm guessing it's some kind of VCP ?

Sadist_Cain
2007-12-27, 05:04
Dam you duckhunt!!! I just spent the past hour scouring google earth for that location.

I was looking for ages for a spot with those features, that style of camera, and the green + river runnig northwest... I then look with more detail and discover the google photo has been twizzled and flipped :P

Thats evil... pure evil

Love the fact its an actual real rendition of north fallujah :D awesomeness

The more I look at this minimap the more I'm drooling and my imagination is getting out of control :goodvibes


Now please tell me that extraction will make a comeback... this map look perfect for it. I can already see myself driving an SUV from the building to the south (the one that look like a palace surrounded by walls) to the mosque then go to that weird VCP like shadow... :drool:

Looks like there will be some intense CQB going on here.

Looks great. Insurgency mode I suppose. Is the US base going to be built in that field in the shadowy area?

"RPG RIGHT!"
"AK LEFT!"
"MAN DOWN, SOMEONE MAN THE .50!"
"DAMN! LAV IS DOWN!"
"DISMBARK! WE HAVE TOP PUSH THEM OUT!"

nice!!

2007-12-27, 12:06
Looks very interesting:-) It's not 100% accurate but it sure is accurate enough:thumbsup: I'm surprised that you've put the buildings all the way to the edge of the map if this is a complete minimap. I wonder how it looks in 1p b/c I'm having issues with this making my own map.
I'm really looking forward to play this:-)

2007-12-27, 12:44
Oh my god with with new spotting system or lack there-of ;)

This will be the best insurgency ... or AAS whatever it ends up being - The depth of a real city in CQB that is new to us will be so nice...

Thanks again for making my day!

It shall be awesome. US Army + Insurgency please!

G.Drew

excellent map! cant wait to play on it with the US! ACOGs will play a key part in this map methinks

Wheeter
2007-12-27, 20:33
This will be so awesome if it allows for room clearance + cqb (we could make more use of flashbangs and those openable doors), maybe rooftops with walls that you can crouch behind for prolonged gunfights, I can imagine now... :D

Outlawz7
2007-12-27, 20:46
Please no uber-unreachable sniping spots like the current hotel rooftop in Basrah. Pwease?

Wheeter

Maybe they should get rid of extremely tall ladders up the side of buildings, and put a stairway inside them instead? :lol:

If you cant get someone off the Hotel Roof you need to stop playin PR. RPGs do wonders against infantry in hard cover. So do SRAWs, LAW80s, and grenades. Oh and Grapple Hooks. Oh and 30mm HEAT Rounds. Oh and 40mm launched grenades.

This map is amazing, had the pleasure of taking a look round it with Duck the other day, it is gonna absolutely rock! ;) CQB taken to a new level of realism and quality, I can't wait!! :D

Couldve left it with Duckhunt = Allah :P

At least until Taxi's new creation, which will then be coutnered by Duck, then trampled by Rank, which will then be outright wtfpwn3d by Paramedic, and then decimated by Duckhunt yet again.

Hmm, I like this map..

But I prefer bigger maps..

The bigger the better! :D

But I still like to do smaller maps as well, and this doesn't look too small, and it's quite realistic.

Anyway, good work so far! :D

I think these kinds of infantry focused maps are going to get a big boost with the current 0.7 updates and future changes. I think the infantry game is one thing that PR can do very very well.

Will there be destructible buildings / assets in this map?

Did you not see all the destructable biuldings in the minimap?

That's a rhetorical question, isn't it?

Sgt_carbonero

erm, is there a way to tell from the minimap?

or are you just pulling my leg?

duckhunt
2007-12-30, 21:58
yea there will be some destroyable buildings in the rural area of the map, mostly with basements included for hiding ammo caches! The map is same size as op ghost train, and there are alot of interiors so it doesnt really feel that small. Bigger size city than albasrah anyway.

Sgt_carbonero
2007-12-30, 22:18
wow, thanks duck,
since basrah is my favorite map this is looking to replace that.

My absolute best fun is in CQ combat in city areas.

I can't wait!!!

Duck, if you ever decide to use some truly Iraqi advice, PM me and maybe we can start the neighbourhood area I lived in back in iraq, my home was near the US Airbase so it'll be a awesome map

Did they fight in your 'hood or just for geographical correctness?

agentscar
2007-12-31, 04:01
It's as big as Op:Ghost Train,and bigger city than Basrah?Thanks Duck,what version of PR will we see this in? (estimated)

What's that shadowy square in the middle of the fields west of the city ?

i think its like a vcp

BabaGurGur
2007-12-31, 08:51
Let me give you a little feedback.

When I was in Iraq, the only city that had nice roads was Baghdad Green Zone, other areas of baghdad had either ok roads or really bumpy ass roads, some areas had no cement roads at all

2nd of all, heres a little but realistic detail, I dont know what they call it in English, but in my language, its called Seean( See-On), its practically a little 10cm gutter thingy in the middle of road that collects water from when people clean their driveway, let me tell you, this Seean thing looks toxic lol :D

3rd, Iraq isn't like America, we dont have the exact number of houses on a block, Iraqi blocks are, lets say, they dont look like the block next to it, some blocks are a few meters, while others can range up to kilometers, also, ALL, iraqi houses have gardens, beside the driveway either on the left or right, i didnt have one in iraq because my house was newly built, (they finished my house about 2 weeks before i arrived to iraq).

Of course, these are minor changes but affect the realism greatly.

you know if you change your color tiling for your mud and sand to 0/0 and re-paint it will look more like the google map, just a suggestion. Other than that it looks great.

I thought this was only the minimap of the map itself and the rest of the map is a WIP. I didnt see the oil pipeline and street from the screen shot I saw last time. They looked beautiful and I doubt that was scrapped.
