Just went and checked 'em out.  Looks like a terrific mod.

I'd like to see buildings you can destroy.  Further character animation 
improvement (did I see any in there?  I'm not sure from the lo-res 
movies).  Hillsides you can put craters in.  Day/night 
cycles.  Rain.  Civilians.  Windows you can break (they had'em in Duke 
Nukem, presumably it can still be done!)  Ability to dig trenches.  Cut 
down trees (or, preferably, mow them down with machine gun fire.  Tough 
damn trees in bf1942 world).  Take trees and pieces of buildings to build 
fortified positions.  And, of course, more porn.

I could go on for hours.  In short, the only things that bf1942 is lacking 
in a big way, more interactivity with the environment, stuff deep in the 
engine itself.  I expect this would take a couple years.  Everything else 
is just interface tweaks and new weapons, and I for one will be 
disappointed to pay for it, just as I have been in the past with countless 
too-soon-to-be-real-upgrade sequels.  Grand Theft Auto: Vice City comes to 
mind.  Give me half of the above and I'll be elated to pay for it, and buy 
copies for my friends (again!)

A built in mp3 player would be very nice too.
