I wholly agree. BF1942 with Desert Combat mod was, IMO, peak of the Battlefields. Yes, it was buggy. Yes, compared to today it was graphically crap and the levels were pretty barren. Still, it was a huge blast to play :) I have many fond memories of LAN parties playing BF1942:DC for like twelve hours straight. Tons of custom maps, easy to modify the files to make custom vehicles and stuff ( lol). Helos were my passion. I loved the helo controls in Desert Combat. It was fun to watch newbies hop into a helo then cry about how hard they are to fly after crashing, hehe. I also loved how the collective control in DC was a momentary setup.. i.e. let go of it and you drop. Made nap of the earth flying easy, better than the adjust-and-it-stays type in Vietnam and later.
