A long time ago (2004, baby), a game named BFV came out. It was nothing revolutionary, but it was pretty fun. Four free maps were released for it through patches:
Defense of Con Thien
Operation Cedar Falls
Fall of Saigon
Unfortunately, all four maps were devoid of bots.
However, the great AI coders at Battlefield SinglePlayer managed to code AI for all four maps. They gave up on the tunnels, but the battles above ground were still pretty fun.
Two years later, I feel like playing BFV again. However, I've uninstalled it, and I did not back up the AI addons..... now I'm trying to find them again so I can play with bots on the above four maps. Can anyone help me? THanks

You can find some of the patches here

Silly me for not checking the obvious place. Thanks man.
Assuming the ones listed there are up to date, the only one missing is Fall of Saigon. That's the one with RVN vs NVA, I think, and it had T72s and a gloomy sunset to match the sunset of the South.

I finally found the Fall of Saigon patch here

Mare sea bow koo, or however you spell it.

They all have AI in POE SP. One of the tunnel maps even has bots running and fighting underground.

Here is some AI for Saigon 68. Bots do not use the tunnels.

Thanks. So now I have Fall of Saigon and Saigon 68.
wtf? The BFV Maps page is down!!!!! NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dude, I still need Con Thien and Cedar Falls. Cedar Falls AI was okay, but Con Thien was a blast.
Does anyone have these? Your help much appreciated!

I did some AI for Def of Con Thein. I will hunt it down and post it. I was never really happy with it, but never took the time to fix it up.
I also have cedar falls AI from either 4cents or Cajun Wolfe. I will hunt that down as well.

i've converted the old BFV maps.asp page to .php for you and have changed the links to go there. http://battlefieldsingleplayer.planetbattl...?pg=bfvmaps&g=4
