I wasn't sure where to post this, so here goes. I am curently working on a custom scenario map of Omaha Beach. I had it near finished about half an hour ago, but the game crashed and I lost all my work. Let me know what you guys think of a Omaha Beach map. Here's the description: Honor our veterans by building one amazing theme park sticking to the theme of D-Day (black and white) and our veterans.
Let me know if you guys think this is an inaproprite map. I am also planing on making a Carentan, a Bercourt Manor, and an "Eagle's Nest" map. I don't plan on including any rides or attractions in these maps. Just custom maps. Let me know what you guys think. I don't know how to upload stuff, nor do I know how to mod stuff to make different scenery items, so these maps are all made from stuff on the game.

Or Saving Private Ryan, or played MOHAA, or BF1942, or any thousands of other things.

Or maybe he's just doing it because he felt like it....

Looking forward to the map:D :up:

Omaha.......Nebraska?

I think he was being sarcastic...

Sorry, I don't have any pictures just yet. I have a photobucket account, so that won't be a problem. But can anyone help me out with uploading the map, I don't know how. I'll try to have the map done today. I don't have any modded objects like hedgehogs, so it's not quite the same. My pillboxes are made from castle building parts. I'll come post when I have it done, and I'll have some pictures. Oh yeah, I was watching Band of Brothers when I thought of the idea. I've read the book, and some of Ambrose's D-Day book. I've also played and beat Call of Duty and Medal of Honor AA.

Looks good, but a little small.

greyfox24
11-17-2004, 08:03 PM
Yeah, i guess it is small. 150X150. I know i have some inconsistences in sand level. So I don't know. Just got the game a few weeks ago, just messin around and still learnin about the land editor. I suck at buildings. The rest of the picks are uploading now, I'll post em as soon as their done. And remember, feel free to make suggestions.
EDIT: or did you mean the pictures are small. I don't know. Is the park too small or the pictures?

greyfox24
11-17-2004, 08:39 PM
Ok. I have all my pictures now. Feel free to make suggestions, and as soon as I figure out how to upload a park, I'll put it on here. I know my pill box is a little awkward, so I plan on fixing that.

By all means, make a suggestion. I don't have any extra stuff like hedgehogs to add. My stuff is based mostly off Medal of Honor AA and Frontline and Pictures from Omaha beach, and Saving Private Ryan. So please, if you think I have so much more to do, explain what you think that might be. I have no intentions of releasing this with rides and a park setting, it is only a map. And for those of you who download it when I'm sure it's download worthy, please post pictures of your parks on this map in this thread, I'd like to see what yall do with it.

Ok, as soon as I upload the map i will post it, no one seems to want to make suggestions, and no one really seems to care for the map anyways, but I'll still post it.

Ok, I have two problems, I can't find in the folders where my scenario is, and I'm not sure how to host it and then post it for download.

An excellent source of Omaha Beach pics besides real ones is Forgotten Hopes Omaha Beach map. Oh...Wait...You already finished...doh I was a little too late.

Remember though, I'd like to see pictures of parks that you guys create using this map. I'm interested in seeing what you can do with it. Especially some of you guys taht are really good. Feel free to modify it in any way though to make it more realistic, I'd really like to see a more realistic map. But remember, post pictures of your parks, heck, put your parks on here so I can go down through them and visit them.

Wow, GREAT MAP. Very orignal concept. may i suggest doing Bastonge next?

P.S. , BenRosser, FH is the best BF1942 mod out there!. i hope they make it for BFV.

Bastogne would be an interesting map to do, but rather hard. Bastoge is rather featureless. The question you have to ask is should i make a map of Batogne, or a map of the Ardennes overlooking Foy. Foy would be the easier of the two, cause the trees are all in straight lines, i could make holes in the groud for foxholes near trees, then have a hill going down into Foy, complete with little cottages and haystacks, but, i suck at buildings, which counts out bastogne, and it would be difficult for me to do a realativly featureless map acuratley. I could try to coppy maps from Call of duty, do it just like those, but still, i'm just not real good with low terrain and buildings. My sand in omaha beach map sucks, it's really bumpy and rises out of the water too sharply. So, I therefore pass the WWII Map projects on to someone else, I have started something, honoring our veterans of foreign wars, please, do not let it die. Perhaps a Peral Harbor, or Iowa Jima map should be in line next. Good Luck to whoever picks up the torch.

Who all has downloaded this map? Have you built any parks on it? Post them if so, I'd like to see what yall did.
