To all mappers

To start I would like to say thank you to all of you and congratulations for your creations. Because of you, Call of Duty remains a very interesting game.

I have a web site offering custom maps for CoD & United Offensive your maps,( soon for CoD2 ), and since the time that I offer these maps, I noticed small things which I would like to speak to you about.

The Swasticas:

This is the Nazi Flag ( SS ), and the Swastikas is forbidden in Germany. Activision and many others make special version for our german friends, without Swastikas. They are a lot of players too. So if you want your maps played all over the world, please think about putting something else to replace that sign and/or flag. Look at RaveKniven's Bismarck GE version. It will gives you some idea of replacement.

Name of maps:

Many maps have the same name or almost the same name. There's a hint: when you and your clan or friends make tests on the map before it official release, make a contest between you to find the better name for that map (just an idea).

Who are you?:

The last thing... one of the most important: fill up a "README.TXT" and add it to your PK3! Many, many maps don't have it and if there's no informations on the loading screen" we simply don't know who made the map! Not just that. Players, server admins ( and me lolll ) want to know who made the map, is it for CoD? UO? What game type? DM, TDM, etc...
Is there a story behind this map? We need infos about all of this. Moreover there's a nice and complete "README.TXT GENERATOR" here on ModsOnline, free! So, Let us know who you are!

NO README = NO CREDITS to the author... think about it.


Finally, thank you all for your hard work. All those long hours behind your computer, every research you've done, for all the times that your girl friends and/or wife were shocked after you about these long hours spent to conceive these maps, from all the CoD community ( and me ;) )THANK YOU[thumbs_up]

Well I have the ├╝ber swastikas, but for the sake of efficiency, I was going to include the no swastika version in the same pk3 as the swastika version. Think that would be acceptable? I was going to do a readme auf Deutsch anyway, so they would know what exactly is the right version to look for when starting a server.

This is normal because there's a lot of content. But it's only for the first time login. After, when your cookies will do their job, it will be faster.

Yea I guess, my CoD clan has a website on php and it takes ages every time...

Posting on forums is a pain when it takes along time...means I cant spam as much...

Hey Capt.Com,

That is a beautiful point you brought up about the Nazi flag! One of my maps has two huge flags on the front of the building and I didn't even think about it until I read your post. I've lived over in Europe when I was a teen as my father was in the Navy and remember some of the laws over there.
It's great to live here in America where you don't have to think twice about it because of Freedom of Expression. I would never make something to project hate or a symbol of hate, but at the same time, you're right, if I want others around the world to view my creation, then I need to respect their laws too.
Bad things is that symbol adds so much realizm to the game! Of course I live here in the south, I could always replace my flag with a Confederate Reble flag! [devilishgrin] And cause a lot of debate that way! [lol]
