Hey guys. Another update! This time around we have something special to show you... something that a lot of you have been asking about, and something that no decent CoH mod should be without...Maps!

Below are six custom maps that will be included with Modern Combat when it's initially released. Our mappers have been working hard over the last couple of months to polish everything up to a professional standard.

So without further ado:

Dragon Valley
- Mapper: Cephalos
- Players: 2

A rural expanse of rice paddies and farmland, dwarfed by lush mountains and encircled by thick vegetation.

Juchao
- Mapper: Spanky
- Players: 2

Adjacent to a hydroelectric dam and power plant, the entire battlefield is divided by a immense dry riverbed.

Senlin Lukou
- Mapper: OnkelSam
- Players: 2

Set in a heavily-wooded swamp, players must slog their way to victory along a single winding dirt road.

Yangxin
- Mapper: MonkeySoldier
- Players: 2

A small rural community surrounded by scenic pines and rivers, and spanned by a strategically important railway route.

Zhouding
- Mapper: Beagletank
- Players: 2

An invaded industrial town located along China's southern coast, the region has been the target of numerous aerial and naval strikes.

Highway 303
- Mapper: Beagletank
- Players: 4

Once a major traffic hub, this war-torn highway has long been abandoned to the surrounding desert.

Pacific Outpost
- Mapper: OnkelSam
- Players: 4

A total conversion of the vCoH map Point du Hoc, the island is an important P.L.A. Pacific outpost, and an potential U.S. staging point.

That's all for now... we hope you like the maps we've made!

I like the diversity; the different styles affecting the different locations is just epic shows a lot of work has been put already into the mapping.

CoH maps were not very different in terms of 'terrain'; there seemed to be either urban or countryside maps or just a combo of both.

We would have liked to add 6 and 8 player maps as well, but they take an insane amount of time to build. So we decided to create a bunch of smaller maps first.
We may provide some big maps too, but remember that after release anyone has access to all our modern map assets, so that the community can build maps too.

hello,
I tried accessing the MC modules but worldbuilder automatically searches for WW2/data files, all other modules except for modern combat I've placed in other files, but it won't let me save my maps ! :(

I've been developing an 8 player map for some time now in an urban dock setting, but we lack the assets to make it not look like a vanilla CoH map.
