The award winning Project Reality (https://www.realitymod.com) and Black Sand Studio (http://www.black-sand-studio.com) teams are proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Sandbox Beta!

http://media.realitymod.com/headers/prbf2_release.png

During development for PR:BF2 v1.0, the Project Reality Team talked to several community members, analyzed hundreds of games, and actually read the community forum suggestions and feedback threads. We realized that our game was missing some key features, and our player base was suffering because of it. Drastic change was required, and v1.0 was the best version to achieve this new goal.

The goal... Fun!

Project Reality: BF2 v1.0 Sandbox is our vision of the future for Project Reality. Hundreds of minutes have been poured into this new version, and the beta contains a small preview of what is yet to come. The beta version contains a single map, Sandin, which runs on top of Project Reality: BF2 v0.98 (https://www.realitymod.com/downloads#bf2). Please ensure you have this version installed prior to installing the beta.

New Features

New map - Sandin, featuring a "small scale" King of the Hill battle
Physics based objects that react to weapons and explosions
New textures and environment objects
Modified graphics and improved immersion
New vehicles
More fun!


Server Files
Due to this being a beta, server files will not be released immediately. Initially, two community servers have been selected to run the beta, CIA and 762, in order to consolidate players and ensure an enjoyable, controlled experience. The Project Reality Team would like to thank CIA and 762 for helping with the beta. If there is increased demand, server files will be released to more servers in the future.

We hope everyone enjoys the new Project Reality experience. Please remember that this is a beta, and there may be issues. Please report any issues or feedback you may have in the Bugs (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f26-pr-bf2-bugs) and Feedback (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f252-pr-bf2-feedback) forums.

Stay tuned for our third Devcast to be released soon, and please feel free to join us on our IRC channel (https://www.realitymod.com/irc) or visit our public forums (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/) to discuss this and other news. Also, be sure to connect to Project Reality through social media to stay informed and receive up to the minute updates, the occasional leaked bit of information and more! See you on the battlefield!

We did not want to give one faction a camo advantage, proper tan would've been a much better color to hide, while the enemy is all green.

There is a BF2 Sandbox

Mineral
2013-04-01, 15:50
there is not. What we mean with sandbox is an actual sandbox to scale, and the soldiers are made as toysoldiers that came to live. BF2 sandbox is a special gamemode where you can place object and so forth while ingame.

About the pictures that we can't enter their links:

1. They say "Download now". Which means it will come "SOON".

2. First one (from left to right) is Sangin.

3. The third one is "New mec kit geometries".

4. Second one says (not sure about that) "Improved immersion". The map in this picture is the map which it's loading music is called "Crusade of Steel" by R-DEV Jafar Ironclad.

5. There's something written in top right corner on these pics. No idea what it is. Definetly starts with "S" (Sandbox?)

No wonder PR 1.0 takes some time when devs use their time for this kind of shit.

You could have said it in a better way but I agree with you, they could have spent their time on developing the 1.0 release, or in other things. Maybe playing more PR instead of modelling, or have a nice trip with the family. I can't see the value of this game mode, I thought people were interested in reality and not in toy soldiers. Anyway nice April Fools, but I had rather seen a devcast than a game mode like this. But who am I to judge about that? Anyway, when can we expect the next devcast? And I don't want to hear SOON since that is a meaningless word, in a few weeks, a few days, that's an answer I can do something with.

Oh and happy eastern everybody!

To all the complainers:

This took maybe two days. It was a last minute job. One dev made the map, others helped with bits and pieces. I helped as well and it took me five bloody minutes. Nobody will tell me I need to spend my time on other things.

Enjoy what you get, see the fun in it. And if you don't, shut up and spend YOUR time on modding BF2 / PR.

I and I think many others can live with that. And I was just giving ideas mate, if I wanted to tell you what to do I would've used other words. :wink:

Well said. I was whining a bit as well although I have made something for PR 1.0, I'm sorry. I figured we want something that most of us don't truly support (with money or community mod work for example). I will make one donation from my money savings soon. I hope it will help you make PR 1.0 better whenever it comes out :)

If you search enough on that map you can find clues about the release date of 1.0 ;)

I don't think people are complaining so much as they're just kind of bummed. I think we were all hoping to play 1.0.

It's nothing personal, and I'm sure you all would like to release it just as much as we would like it released, if not more. It's ready when it's ready.

Still and all, the gesture was a appreciated, and was a lot better than a poke in the eye!

It was on April Fool's day what did all of you expect?

The sandbox map seems to be a representation of a small part of the upcoming map: Sangin.

2013-04-03, 14:38
Well, at least we know Sangin is coming in 1.0.

Also on the 3rd picture with the MEC soldiers you can see an LAV-25 in the back - there's currently no map with MEC on it that has an LAV, so that is a new map as well. Actually it's probably the same map as in the 2nd picture and the picture in the "Crusade of Steel" dev blog, so it's gonna be USMC vs. MEC and we can expect an F-18.

The 'Crusade of Steel' map looks much more open and I bet that they want to make it another kashan desert style map. So I guess it's a new map.

LOL knew something would be released while I was gone over the last 2 weeks, I was guessing it would be dev cast 3 but this is better. Reminds me of the army men RTS games from way back.

You could have said it in a better way but I agree with you, they could have spent their time on developing the 1.0 release, or in other things. Maybe playing more PR instead of modelling, or have a nice trip with the family. I can't see the value of this game mode, I thought people were interested in reality and not in toy soldiers. Anyway nice April Fools, but I had rather seen a devcast than a game mode like this. But who am I to judge about that? Anyway, when can we expect the next devcast? And I don't want to hear SOON since that is a meaningless word, in a few weeks, a few days, that's an answer I can do something with.

Oh and happy eastern everybody!

I don't like the harsh tone some use. Remember the DEVs, contributors and testers do this in their free time and berating them is insulting considering you pay NOTHING for this mod. Life goes on and if we get to play PR 1.0 or .98. Groovy. I think were almost there ;) and I'm feeling it y'all just be like coo man. You feeling me homie?

DDS, If I really wanted to be mean to them I would have used other words. At that time I was not happy that they made this because I supposed they had used a lot of valuable time to make it. Later on they said that it didn't took so long as we thought. I am okay with that, but I am not keeping my mouth shut for two years and wait for the next release. But I am over it, and going on and on about it not good since I don't have the rights to say anything about it, right?

And a question for you DDS, since you are the one that's revived this conversation, what if I pay $60,- this month . Am I then in the position to express my feelings without having 4 people jumping on top of me?

Just next time, don't go on about it, it is like reigniting fireworks. You will never know what is going to happen.

This took at least 2 days by a total of 4 people. I believe 3 were devs that and 1 tester. The map was already done due to Vapo doing things by himself when he completed Black Gold, the texturing was easy since you just had to replace colors. The large statics were done in a matter of hours not days. I don't get why your so upset over a game. Right now as people have said in the Ask Dev's thread, we're waiting for core features to be implemented, bug fixes, etc. We're still doing regular updates via devcasts and blog posts. The next devcast will be arriving very soon. And as DDS said, we do this on our time not yours.

Spush, I know, I just had to make him clear that I don't want to go on about it. I am not upset, if I was upset I would use other words. I was just irritated at the time since he found it necessary to react on a week old message.

And my first post was more to make it more clear what Tarruahan or whatever his name is said, and what my opinion was about that at the time. Now my opinion changed, no need to talk about that again.

About the bold thingy, I was upset at the time, not anymore. I explained that, so again for the fifth time don't keep on talking about it. I already explained it.

How dare developers who do this in their free time, devote their free time to something they enjoy, especially on April Fools of all days! The holiest of gaming holidays.
