If the game can survive at all, it might just be a matter of waiting for the hardware to catch up...

Yup. Just yesterday i was fumbling about in the FMB trying to make a bombing practice map. I laid down rows of tankers to construct a "grid" of sorts at sea level, so that i can then aim at the center of it and see how off center my bombs drop.

Well, i ended up with about 650 static ships and a slideshow, so i had to go back and revise things a bit

However, despite the amount of objects clustered together, the mission did load and the game didn't crash. There are contemporary sims out there that have a cap of about 200 objects per mission before they start crashing, so i guess that as CoD is getting optimized and better hardware comes around we'll be able to get really massive scenarios.

Not to derail the thread further, but I think the problems with the game are half coding and half being ahead of its time, if you look at the scale of the map and all the details...

So many negative people out there. you have bought the game already. You ain't getting a refund. One day it will be sorted out. Until then, get on with your lives.
