Project Reality and Black Sand Studios

Black Sand Studios is a group of mod teams who have formed a "studio" of sorts to help each other out. The teams share ideas, resources, assets and .. most importantly .. share the goal of creating great mods on the Battlefield series and other mod platforms in the future.

The mod teams participating in the studio include:
- 21st Century Warfare
- Battlefield Korea
- Battlegroup : Frontlines
- Eve of Destruction
- Operation Peacekeeper
- Project Reality
- Rebel Insurgencies
- US Intervention


All the mods in the Studio retain their own distinct game play styles, settings and objectives, but we assist each other to help each mod team further their respective goals and objectives. Ultimately, as a result, the players are the winners because mods in the studio can now deliver more content as a result of pooling our resources.

The v0.4 release of Project Reality marks the first release since the team has been collaborating with the folks at Black Sand Studios. Keep your eye out for more great releases from the Black Sand Studios mod teams in the near future!

So whats this? There's a BF2 modding studio where you help each other but retain the mod objectives? Sounds good to me, look forward to alot of those other mods too

I was hoping for mods to team up.

Does this mean that PR can swap, say, the limited kit system for a bunch of vehicles or statics from other mods?

That's certainly the idea. Mods cooperating can achieve a lot more and a lot quicker than a mod working solely.

Sharing of resources, tips and ideas can only be good for the community of gamers, making sure credit is given were appropriate.

By creating a larger resource deposit of material and artistic/intellectual material that is solidly hosted and well known a launch platform for tomorrows computer and art staff is provided that will become a sort of Myspace for those occupations.

Should allow for higher quality releases in the future for PR. And hopefully BF3 is another mdoern combat situation so you guys can MOD the hell out of that.

Its a good idea. If one team needs a T-55 and another team already has one, why not share? Will mean faster mod's, better quality and a good way to share ideas and resources.

Reminds me alot of E-Studios, Slipstream Productions, and Derelict Studios for C&C games

Yes, it is the way forward in terms in modding. Teamwork on all levels for PR!

Would be nice to get the website up and big thanks to all who have contributed.

Wow I was surprised when I saw you posted it here, egg :)

Exactly. We also share knowledge about certain things. I wanted to edit some HUD things and then 2Slick4U came up with some ideas and code lines that helped me alot while doing our own HUD. I love this kind of cooperation. Lets see how this turns out in the near future. Glad to work with the other teams :-D

What an inspiration too, to share rather then to horde what you have.
Glad to see the community working together for their fans, a great example to all what can be achieved this way.

Any chance you can get POE on board and the PRify that mod. That would be the best thing ever.

That would be great! The standard artillery sucks. :twisted:

I'd pretty much left BF2 scene, but POE2, and then PR inspired me to come back. Only PR now, though.

Sounds like a great thing! Glad people see the light in sharing to build up these sorts of things.

Note: The PRICE is low but the COST is high but not as high as if you had to do it all on your own. Price is what you are charged for a good/service, cost is what must be put in to creating that good/service. The price can be free but the cost is always something even if it's just the time to pick up the thing from the ground (like a rock). I will step off the economics soap box now.

btw, Rebel Insurgencies mod?

Sounds interesting, anyone got a linky?

The rebel insurgencies modification died a long time ago, because their leader decided to quit BF2 modding and start modding for Armed Assault.

There are many Great Mods out there for vBf2 (Bet its only Mods now that make peaple buy the Game :D ) Though some stay with the Ways of vBF2 they have the Greatest of Content and some have actually Totally Converted it from a Middle Eastern War to a Number of other Ways Both Past and Present which with the vBF2 Engine can be called Spectacular to the Highest Level! So heres to vBF2 Modding and all its Glorious Mods out there! ORAH!

Personnaly I think that this would be the greatest thing happenning for BF players. I am pretty much disapointed by ET/QW gamplay, tryed other thing like Americas Army ect but PoE2 and PR are wht realy gave me some good moments... Now that PoE2 is loosing players focus, it would be fantastic to
have those two greatly talented team to join.

I think that itwould be 2 bad that PoE's team got forgetted with all the great stuff and maps that they gave us.

BTW , you modders got the same kind of big problems with EA's counter-mod mesures...
you definitly should feel like close freinds...

I think POE just dont want to be part of the BSS because they had some arguments with OPK.
