Title says it all. These were some really awesome maps that the DC Devs never included in the full mod release for whatever reason. I think these are very awesome, so I'm reviving them by sharing them here with you guys. How did I get these? Well, a few days ago I contacted a DC Final tester from 2003/2004 by the name of "myne", and he sent me a bunch of unreleased Desert Combat/DC Final content (including the maps) that he had kept over the years. Keep in mind that I DID NOT make these, they were made by the DC Devs back when DC and DC Final was still in development. And yes, I did get permission from myne to upload these, he said "at this point, go for it, its been over 10 years". Again, special thanks to him for digging through his old harddrives and sending me this great stuff! smile.gif

Maps:
DC BeachInvasion - A nice map similar to Omaha Beach
DC Five Inch Friday - An open map with a few docks, factories, a carrier, would be fun for inf and dogfighting
DC Hot Sand - Big open desert map with a few outposts scattered across the map
DC Iraqi Dam - Unfinished map, but has a very cool dam, similar to the one from Kubra Dam in BF2
DC Liberation Of Kuwait - Probably my favorite, a big city with lots of cool buildings and tanks
First Light (Old Version) - Old version of DC First Light before it was included in DC Final

Version History:
v1 - First Release
v2 - Updated version of DC Hot Sand added, and fixed the grey tent textures at the US airfield on First Light
v3 - 3 more unreleased maps added: DC LODtest, DC radtest, and DC Medina Ridge Day2

Amazing. After all these years to see this! cool.gif Remember it was Frank Delise and his Desert Combat team that went on to help develop Battlefield 2, so much of this may have be the precursor to some of the ideas that went to BF2.

Thanks Jim (and myne) for sharing this with the community. Truly cool stuff!

This is way cool!

I installed the new maps to the Desert Combat mod location. Here's what I found:

DC_Five_Inch_Friday and DC_Liberation_of_Kuwait show up for Single Player. The remaining 4 levels show up as Conquest.

I haven't played any yet (maybe tonight), but these files are like finding water in the desert!

Thanks for posting these!!

Awesome! I tested DC Liberation Of Kuwait in SP and it crashes. DC Five Inch Friday in SP works, but its a bit buggy, as the ships are bouncing on the land

Really good you open this work public to us. I read, the singleplayer COOP didn't works correct. Could you fix it Jim2102? It's possible that this maps interests for another mods like superDC. Should they use it for their mods if they mention the owners?


It's a good topic to create a desert combat news. Thank you for the news informations Jim2102.:-)

UPDATE: I have found 3 more unreleased maps in all of the unreleased DC content that myne sent me. They are DC LODtest, DC radtest, and DC Medina Ridge Day2. LODtest is a map that was used for testing the DC vehicles, and you can find almost all vehicles on this map. radtest was presumably used for testing DC building objects, very small infantry type map. And Medina Ridge Day2, it is not a push map like the regular Medina Ridge, you can cap the flags in any order you want, and there are no choppers
