Hi guys

with the train I created I got interested in armored trains and bought some books. Currently I don't have the will nor the time to create a complete train with multiple carts by myself but I still would like to see if it would work gameplay wise in FHSW and if it's "fun". So I took some existing models and tried to build (mostly code) the German standard armored train "BP-44". The model doesn't look anything like the real train I only recreated its features, armament and armor in the game. Since most ppl don't know much about armored trains I'll give you a quick overview what I did.



The max armor thickness in RL was 30 mm so that's what I applied to all wagons. The loco is a bit more resistant.

Artillery Wagon: 10.5 cm leFH 18M + 4 x MG 34
Command Wagon: 4 x MG 34, used for communication and most of the infantry was located there
Artillery and AA Wagon: 10.5 cm leFH 18M + 2 cm Flakvierling + 4 x MG 34
Tank Wagon: Panzer 38(t) which can be deployed
Tank Hunter Wagon: Panzer IV H turret on fixed hull

You can run inside of all wagons, they also have a couple of pistol ports for defense and you can open/close the side and front/back doors.

The train was symmetrical so behind the locomotive it had a second set of the above wagons in reversed order.

Full train:



It's a really ugly model and as I said it doesn't look like the original train. So the question is: Why did I create it then? Well I would like to test it on our server to see if it theoretically works gameplay and balance-wise, also as stress test. This is where I need you, I hope you're interested in trying out something which hasn't been done before in BF1942 and I don't think there are many other FPS games out there which have a train.

The map is a modified version of Stashuv Area, Germans can only spawn in the train and have to cap 3 flags in order to win (push map). Enemy are Polish Partisans (Armia Krajowa). I'm not sure how long one round takes, could be over in 5 minutes. I also have no idea how the balance is.

Date to play and download will be posted later.

Sure, I just wanted to see if it doesn't crash because it would be quite disappointing when we do a big test and it doesn't even load.

What about today @7 pm? After that I only have time again on Friday evening, Saturday is F|H and Sunday event.

I just launched the map...
Its amazing man! Thank you for your great work! I understand what it is painstaking work, I would never have the patience to do something like this. Of course, some elements of the train in serious need of improvement, but this is just the beginning, right?

Кому-то может показаться смешным, но сев в кабину машиниста, я испытал то, о чем когда-то давно мечтал в детстве.

First test was a success, seemed to run pretty smooth and stable. Can't say much about balance, maybe the satchels are a bit too powerful.

Great job EyE yahoo
Your train is "milestone" in BF modding. It opens new capabilities for FHSW, now I'm dreaming about maps with armored trains.

THANK YOU
