Re: Heightmaps!

I would suggest, rather than making the heightmap entirely by hand, to convert a digital surface model (a real world heightmap, so to speak) to a RAW file, which is the format used by the heightmap file in level archives.

Has anyone had any success defining a player skin to a class and not the entire team?
What about using the player.active command and player.kit? I believe you could trick the client into displaying different skins based on the picked kit.

Re: New mod project: Secret Weapons of WWII Extended

I’d first like to see if anyone wants to join this project. It requires a team of modders.

New mod project: Secret Weapons of WWII Extended

Hi all, I'd like to start a new client-side mod project for Battlefield 1942 and possibly Battlefield Vietnam. Here is some info: - The theme of the mod is secret weapons and vehicles of WWII, from 1944 to 1950ish; - It would be a total conversion mod, meaning no vanilla assets are to be used; - The...

Re: BF2's commander role... how much of it could be replicated in BF1942?

Yes the binoculars that fire a missile strike. I had that code working a few years back, but this is not what I’m looking for.

What I need is the ability to do this while looking at the mini-map and picking a spot in it. I’m sure there’s a way to do this with the artillery camera.

BF2's commander role... how much of it could be replicated in BF1942?

Hi all, As the title says, I am trying to figure out how much of BF2's commander role could be replicated in BF1942. What I am really interested in is if it would be possible at all to provide supplies or artillery strikes by clicking on an area of the minimap. The minimap area that is clicked would...

Re: bc42 for xpacks

Hi, is it possible to set bc42 to read the xpacks as target locations for static objects, factions, etc? Specifically to make a mod for say, secret weapons in the secret weapons mod folder? Yes, you need to create XPack2.cfg and XPack2.lst files to point BC to where you have your XPack mod files. I...

Re: Versioning your mod/map/patch

I looked at that a while back, and they are all kinda valid in one way or another. But they are very focused on software development with controlled releases, updates, are managed very strictly. For a complete mod it make sense, but for maps and levels its not so useful. Use a "build number&qu...
