The map contest is over. 23 maps have been sent in. We would like to thank everyone who participated. At the moment we are looking into the maps and rating them. That takes some time, especially while we are trying to finalize the patch, but, apart from that we will do our very best to bring the official Fan Map Pack #2 out to you ASAP. Stay tuned to get more information about Fan Map Pack #2 soon, as well as a declaration of the winner of the contest.
And for the infantry, here are some new toys, as well. We have the MAS 38 SMG designed by Djagg and McGibs. And last but not least the French grenade Ṃdele 1937 that was done by McGibs.
You will get the chance to field-test this equipment on a map called Counterattack that takes place in the year 1940 in the fields of eastern France. The map was made by Armin Ace and depicts a first attempt of British and French troops to take the offensive against the advancing German forces.
We're very grateful you decided to stop by the site and check on our progress, be sure to visit by our public forums and discuss this news update. Come back next week for another news update from Forgotten Hope.

The deadline for submissions is next Friday, the 26th of November. So don't forget to send your map in in time for it to have a chance to be part of this pack. For the last tweaks of your map we have setup a new version of the Forgotten Hope Modding Tool Pack V1.1.
Not only our coders are working to ensure you get the patch ASAP. Our modelers are designing new content while skinners are improving and creating new skins. And our mappers are not idle either.
So now we'd like to show off some stuff that has just been finished. For today we have a new map, Kasserine Pass, that takes place in the year 1943 in the hills of Western Tunisia. The map was made by GI_JOEJK and depicts the first confrontion between American troops and a major German armored offensive.
