http://media.realitymod.com/headers/prbf2_update.png

After a long wait, we can finally announce the next major release of Project Reality: v1.5. This will be our 38th major release! Thanks to some changes on how we make releases, we were able to build a total of 20 patches between v1.4 and v1.5. This has allowed the team to focus on new big content updates for this and future releases.

And speaking of a big content update, we are really excited to finally be able to present you with something the community has waited for a long time: The Polish faction has finally made its way into PR! Being in development for years, the Polish faction was brought together by dozens of community members (see below) working on it together with the PR-team, once again highlighting that this mod, more than anything else, lives off and grows with the dedication of its community members stepping up to the task. Thanks to all of them for their hard work!

Next to the Polish Forces there are a few new additions to other factions including the Russian GAZ Tigr-M armored jeep and a brand new DAF YA-4442 truck series for the Dutch Forces. As well as a few gameplay tweaks, optimizations and bug fixes. More will be revealed in the coming days when we will post the full changelog. But for now enjoy the screenshots below.

We also want to take this opportunity to show off the new player manual (https://realitymod.gitbooks.io/pr-manual/content/). We have gone to an online system which allows easier community translations and updates with every PR release. It's already updated to v1.5 so if you have a keen eye you can already spot a few gameplay changes v1.5 will bring. We will continue to update it over the next few days and weeks to include video tutorials and more chapters. If you are interested in helping out go over to this thread (http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f10-pr-bf2-general-discussion/75501-official-pr-manual-call-translators.html).

We do not have an exact release date yet for v1.5 but the wait won't be much longer now! Unforeseen complications could always push it further. Stay tuned to our social channels and the forums for more information, media, and of course the release.

Just like rearming, requesting kits from crates will deplete the supply crates. Each kit will cost 200 points, with light crates having 1500 (7x kits) and heavy ones 3000 (14x kits).

Well, it clearly states that this isn't a changelog and the full changelog will come in a few days. Besides, this is a good change, it will make logistics even more important, this way, we'll have to use more of those awesome DAF trucks. That might as well be the most real model I've seen in PR so far.

To request a standard, infantry or limited kit you need to meet the four requirements:

You must be at the correct location
You must be in a squad with enough players to request that class of kit, without it being taken already
The requested kit must be available in the kit pool
You must be granted permission by your Squad Leader to request the kit

Does this mean what I think it does?

Hype!

As a mainly co-op player, will any of the new maps be co-op compatible, and are any updates planned for the previously released map packs or should they work fine with 1.5?

Looking forward to release!

Unfortunately none of the new maps will have coop support. That will hopefully come not too soon afterwards.

Map packs should work fine though with v1.5!

1) Nobody in team had time to take a focused look at this for implementation. Hopefully soon we can see if we can get this in or at least with a toggle.
2) No, kinda same as above I guess.
3) Never happening. We choose to focus our available computing resources elsewhere.
4) That's a concept not an actual working menu.

Thanks for the quick answers!

1) I tried it and now can't play without it. It really makes a HUGE difference, and it already works perfectly it would just require to update one file on PR.

2) Haven't tried it myself but seems like CASualTY put a lot of effort on it... would be a shame not to use it "officially" at some point.

3) Well that is a shame, having tried it myself it certainly brings a massive improvement to visual fidelity, also its been heavily tested on PR and shown to cause no computing resources diminishing whatsoever as these particular textures are made to use the VRAM (GPU's RAM) and currently PR uses only about 512MB of VRAM so modern GPUs run these HD Skyboxes and other textures like butter. I run them with no FPS loss, not even 1FPS and I am playing on a crappy 512MB Integrated intel GPU (Macbook pro touchbar on windows 10 bootcamp).

4) Yeah, great concept thou :D

Few things that bothers me in manual.

First is that gray font colour. "It is even possible ammo sources deplete before you're completly rearmed." - this is very important but in manual it's barely visible and a lot of people could just ignore it. Usually in other manuals there is shiny symbol or something that will get your attention.

We know how many points crate have and how many cost kit. However we don't know how many points have ammo bag and how many points need rocket, ammo bag etc. Is it better to get kit or wait for rearm my ammo bag? I don't know.

NOOOOOOO!!!!

WHY?????

It was already bad enough, so many assh*les too damn lazy to request Rifleman kits to rearm off of, crates never last... and now this???

It was already difficult enough to get crates on the battlefield of late, so many bad Trans pilots who think they're flying aces.

And what about mortars? Someone on the DEV team have a hard-on against mortars? It's already difficult enough to make those work.

Bummer... what's the rationale for this dastardly speedy exhaustion of crates?

Is the DEV team at least willing to reverse this misguided decision once they see the devastating effects of it out in the field?

Mr.VdHeide
2018-01-29, 23:21
We will make sure to keep it working, also, mortars dont need another nerf. That is definitely not the plan. Some maps might require and additional logi or trans heli as a result of this but we shall see.

You really should consider turning on your brain before you complain. Supply crates, both big an small received an almost three times increase in their capacity (500->1,400; 1,000->2,800) to make up for the fact that the kit request now costs supply points too. Just rearming now is cheaper than ever before, with up to 28 ammo bags out of a SINGLE big crate. Yes, you could potentially have no limit on the crate with abusing the kit request, BUT it would take you almost an hour to do so by youself(28x2 min=56 min). I mean, if you run 8 man mortars like NA does you could abuse the request mechanic more effectively, but it would stilll be 8 minutes before the new behaviour is less effective than the old one.


On the upside, with your post it's now time to finally switch the PR Forum Alert Level to "OMG - These changes have ruined the mod even though I'm yet to play it".
