People were chatting on the server yesterday about this, maps like peenemunde and essen would be perfect late night/low player maps.  
So how difficult would it be to port them over obviously replace vehicles and make a mappack out of them, anyone tried it?.

Actually around April - June this year the Japanese community was discussing and revived a collection of maps, among which I found Essen and Telemark (which I saw people chatting about too). As far as I understand the maps were converted/created for an early versions of FHSW, as a result of some agreement. I think that only one of the maps in the collection needed to be modified to be compatible with FHSW 0.61. The others appear to be unmodified since 2008. Here's the list:

Code
Battle_of_El_Alamein.rfa
Essen.rfa
Mont_St_Michel.rfa
Normandy_Drop-Glider.rfa
StalingradWinter.rfa
Telemark.rfa
The_Fall_of_Tobruk.rfa
All of these were tested with FHSW 0.61 and worked (as far as I remember). So I think that all that is needed is to add newer FHSW content (vehicles, kits, etc. which can also be done via SSM) and balance the maps accordingly.

There were a few more old FHSW maps revived at the time, like Operation_Cobra-1944, Rheinmetall_PanzerFHSW and Battle_of_Corsica, but there was no Peenemunde.

I hope someone does it. I think most of the maps would be cool and attractive.

I like this idea too. Let's test them biggrin

EDIT:
The only problem right now, is that they all have PFC Mapping team brand on them, so I am definitely NOT sure if we can use them. Ideally we would need permission from PFC mapping team because they are still around/active AND I believe this is their property/viable for legal action against improper/unauthorized use. Correct me if I am wrong please, but I prefer the correct, safe, way here.

Yeah, I didn't think of that. I see it as a problem in a different way: it's like an advertisement for an organization of people with a reputation for dishonest, fraudulent and cultish behavior, which can harm people who have no clue about this. So I'm definitely against accepting any such brands displayed anywhere on maps, unless it's a completely historical brand and in historical context wink

Anyway, those maps are not needed. The original maps they are based on can be used to create new FHSW versions of them (with new names, not that they'd conflict with obsolete maps which no one plays). I think Peenemunde would be cool (hopefully with the Wasserfall guided missile)!

There have already been many FHSW maps based on SWWWII, RTR, BFVietnam and other games' maps.

Yep that is true Trolli, I fully agree.

Also, besides all that, I'd prefer to get old maps fixed sad
