I liked the Island System actually.
I liked the Island System actually.
It's the only practical solution to have logical limits in the maps. But I really wonder how BIS wants to set up the new environments without islands.

Whatever the case. Bigger maps= Bigger campaign = Bigger Realism = Bigger fun. Isn't that what we all want!
Can't wait, no matter what the outcome.
I know I shouldn't encourage such behaivour, but it's drunken comedy gold.

I like the big islands better. If we have to have these "Walls" you can forget about flying you'll smash into these walls than what happens ? You would simply keep augering into them and you wouldn't move. We can not loose our islands in my oppinon Islands are better than these miniature worlds.
I think they said in an interview, that there would be no real limit on map size...
I wouldn't have a problem if they used islands, as long as they're much, much, much, larger than the ones now.
Other than walls, and islands, they could just make the whole world in one map. (by the time a mission loaded, OFP3 would be out ).
well for sure there wont be a "invisible wall" for planes because it would look stupid seeing planes stop in the air and explode. Maybe they will put warning zones where u get shot down if u pass it "?Originally Posted by (Drill Sergeant @ Aug. 07 2003,20:49)
Ísn´t American continent an Island??
Isnt Europe+Asia an island??
Isnt Africa an Island??
Islands are perfect !!!! *** *** ***
Now getting serious...
First it was anounced that this game was gonna be in the 70´s conflicts...one step backward in my opinion. And now it maybe won´t bring islands....another step backwards... *** ***
I think the current islands (cept Nogova) are perfect, they have nice terrain, lotsa forests, nice display of buildings and bushes everywhere, then they decided to give us more and better and Nogova turned out bald and felt empty , now they want even bigger environments and i wonder if that will sacrifice more detail from the terrains , i know many like planes and jets and want to fly @ mach 2 but what about infantry? Or jungle in nam, can they create dense jungle in a endless map? with decent colision detection and cliping probs fixed? They should keep the size and improve quality, we dont need bigger for most aspects of the game (infantry, armor and helos), even BF1985 huge mission only uses what? less than half Nogova, hmmm .
Well than I guess we still lose our oceans. No realistic VBSS or little islands in the middle of no where.
If it's only in the seventies I don't think it's worth buying either. What was happening in africa in the seventies?
Mabe the yomkipour (spelling) war. The Kontras and blah blah blah. All the US was involed in in the seventies in africa was covert ops helping people use stingers to shoot russian aircraft out of the sky. And a few embasy problems but not much more. So OFP2 is a Vietnam game now. What a let down. Modern Delta Force and NAVY SEALs opperating with high tech eqipment in Sigon in the Hippy Days. They had better leave the addon system oppen and send all the tools out with the game when you buy the cd. Vietnam is a good setting it's just not verry modern or easy to adapt modern themes to. But who knows mabe they'll change the theme.
And if the terrian is unlimited can we have huge map of Vietnam and parts of Cambodia an Laos? And mabe part of china? Than I would buy it and rate it #1 Vietnam game.
As for the shooting down and destrying plaers when they leave the mision area that's not exactly a good idea either.
