Hey guys, I had heard that IW put out a christmas themed version of the map crash for the players back in december, I could not find it on market place and asked a few of you I played with online about it and you had not heard of it or seen it ither. I found a video of the map on YOUTUBE it looks pretty cool but also found out it was only for the PC version. Too bad, I think it would be cool to put out themed maps once in a while for holidays on the xbox 360 version as well. But new maps are always welcome too, hopefuly they will get some out to us soon. Anyway the link is below if anyone missed it.

Wanted to ask anyone here that might be playing on PC and downloaded the map making tools how much freedom you have. can you control weather/time of day, how limited are you in size of map and number of items placed, how many items are available etc. Just curious because I used to make Maps for delta force extreme on pc and loved it, liked making maps more than actualy playing the game.

I've only seen it because my brother plays cod4 on the PC. It is really creative. I mean lights everywhere, candy canes, presents, and a huge tree right in the middle of the downed chopper. They really should of showed some love to the xbl marketplace.
I don't think he has tried the editing software

Ya, I dont see why they would not pass it on to the xbox players, it was made and released by IW.

2 possible reasons I can think of are.

1. Maybe could not get approved by MS soon enough, if they have to get permission/license etc to put up on marketplace, maybe they figured it would get out to us too late for X-Mas. or maybe MS wanted IW to charge for the map. I know they did this with the gears of war people. Gears of war wanted to release one of their map packs for free as a thank you to the Fans but MS and them went round and round and wanted Gears to charge, and MS won out.

2. The map looks the same but has alot added, alot of lights and extra objects there, Each item placed adds to the work load of the Graphics processor, Especialy things like smoke, fire, and Lights, and thats alot of lights, so if all the extra Items placed might cause even the slightest bit of lag on a 360, they or MS might say NO!, IW would not want people to start calling COD4 a laggy game over one map put out for fun, and MS would feel the same way about something lagging on thier product.
But if ms was worried about a laggy game they would take down the MP Frontlines fuel of war Demo they have up now, Man that game is a blast but the lag realy sucks.

Yeah, I have a feeling it is a problem on the MS side of things. That would have been stupid if they made it DLC and had us pay for a map we already have. Probably a licensing/approval thing like you said. I never thought about all the new textures, it could have been like a 40+mb download as well. I'll have to ask my brother how big it is for the computer.
