Prior to the Open Beta, I heard that Sinai Desert was in fact going to be one of the largest maps in "Battlefield" history. That was difficult to believe initially until I saw this image comparing its size to that of Silk Road?s.




That is a very very silly way of comparing map size. Silk road is most definitely larger the Sinai by a good amount. Just look at the furthest flag distances in game. From A to G on both maps(Sinai has since been flipped around) but on Sinai its ~450m and on Silk ~650m+. I've heard at one point it Sinai was much larger, but was reworked and downsized. It is still a large map but not nearly THAT big.



Anyways, I can't wait for rented servers and we can start changing some things up.

@elementofprgress

It actually isn't silly at all.

What is silly is the comparison where someone literally overlayed the Commander view of Firestorm (1920x1080) over the Sinai Desert overhead view (1920x1080) and called the two maps the same size. They were of course laughed at and I'm having trouble digging it up.

ChineseToTheBone's source actually scaled the images using flag distances.

Here is the original post.

Here is the user's comparison with Bandar Desert.

Passive Spotting is the future!

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

So Symthic will have its own server in either US West or US East for "Battlefield 1"?

Surely the maps cannot be changed in any manner for custom servers though.

themapsthemselves no, but you can change enough variables to make the gameplay flow differently, i think(only had a custom server once like, 4 years ago)

Depends on what you can really customize. As of now, teambalancers seem out of question. I wonder if you can turn off the Behemoth or limit class usage. I am thrilled for my favourite server from BF4 to reemerge where there was a limit of four snipers per team, which should improve the gameplay drastically.

I doubt though that the options will be exhausting the possibilities though.

Yeah I've seen that, too. I wondered though if it is just a simple On/Off thing, or is there more depth to it? Like a limit, I mean limiting the number of scouts is a sensible idea, but turning them off completely is stupid, since one would create a totally new game with new dynamics.

Also differen options for weapons as well as classes, I do not know about that, since we have no more all-class choices. I was also hoping for a toggle for the behemoth, which I consider to be a crutch to make the new conquest system work.

Ah. So the upcoming Fog of War mode will probably have Nametags set to Off and Always Fog set to On by default.

Perhaps the limitation to only handguns and melee weapons is not set in stone either.

Seeing as Fog Of War and Hardcore are considered Custom Games rather than being separate modes, I'd expect both are simply existing base-game modes with their settings altered. Classic would be another of the same.

I wonder if the current Hardcore community will become divided in that case, since there might end up being custom servers that modify the full health of a soldier to be 60 again just like the previous titles.
