Post news Report RSS Bf2 Mountains Dogfighting

It's a pure Dogfight map, without infantry mode ! Many planes and helicopters on a very realistic terrain since realized from DEM data and orthophotos texturing.

Hello guys,

Something you have probably noticed is that, with Bf2 mod, there is very few maps, especially focused on aerial combat, so I thought it would be useful to create an extra, very wide, but, this time, with a huge mountainous landscape:

in fact, the presence of a strongly accentuated relief greatly improves the quality of the piloting by the fact that it's much easier to orient itself spatially during the intense phases of Fight ! For this, I used a set of Dem Data as well as a large aerial photo of the concerned region : finally, the map is 4 km by side and is surrounded by secondary terrains of the same origin and size: The whole is therefore 12 x 12 km; The whole textured in the same way, in maximum quality: which explains the weight of the final zip file........:

the view is increased to 3 km and the summits of the mountains rise to more than 2145 meters: under these conditions, the dogfight experience become Fairly impressive:


And, for an even closer experience of reality, I strongly advise you to use the Kestrel app of FreeTrack Project: BF2FreeLook v1.1


Thus, the cockpit view becomes panoramic and makes it easier to follow the positions of the opponents: immersion in the game is then greatly improved.

For better visibility, the video below was realized without HUD, which is not advisable in game: see rather ....

Note that for players interested in multiplayer, the map is now playable, online, on the Lost-soldiers server: BF2.LOST-SOLDIERS.ORG:17002

If you have any questions do not hesitate !

thanks

Like I said on BFSinglplayer forums, we sure would love to have you make a nice map for us of North or South Korea!

Top tier work, and it doesn't get more realistic than this!

Hello Anthony817,

If you try it, you will see that the map is only realistic plane view: therefore I doubt that it would be useful for your mod.

Exactly! I always thought that BF2 could use more maps focused on air to air combat!

The map has been uploaded but is still awaiting approval by the admins; And, yes, there is a bot support; But only in vehicles, all aerial: nothing like infantry since no navmesh

Perfect, it did not take too long !

And after checking it works on Bf2 patch 1.41 and 1.50, windows xp, 7 and 10. Therefore, there should not be too much problem

Anyway, i wish you good flight, guys !!

Hello Guest!

Another version of this map exists, with infantry and vehicles: its name: MountainsConvoyAirAttack; And as the name suggests, it is still a map for aviation, but this time with ground attack of AI armored convoys: quite amusing! I have to finalize details before upload .......
