Project Reality v0.6 Update
We're going to be releasing Project Reality v0.6 within the next 10 days or so. We're just wrapping up some details and putting together the final test build.

The Open Beta process has been invaluable for us in ironing out major kinks and issues with v0.6. A HUGE thanks to our community members who have given us feedback and helped shape this release of the award winning Project Reality mod.

Some of you might be wondering why some bugs identified in the Open Beta were not fixed. We'll never see a "perfect" release of Project Reality, but hopefully each release is better than the previous one!

Expect a v0.6 release announcement shortly (assuming all goes well in the final stage of testing).


L3DT
With the release of v0.6 Project Reality will introduce a 17 square kilometre map. We'll be continuing to stretch the limits of the BF2 engine. One of the tools we'll be using is "L3DT" or "Large 3D Terrain Generator" from Bundysoft (http://www.bundysoft.com (http://www.bundysoft.com/L3DT/))

L3DT is a fabulous terrain generation tool and is a "labour of love" by a very small development team. There's a free version and a trial of the Pro version. The purchase price is only about $35 for the full Pro version of this fantastic tool.

Recently [R-DEV]Rhino won the "image of the month" competition at Bundysoft. The image features a sneak peek of Project Reality v0.7 with the Challenger II and Rhino's latest map creation called "Battle for Qinling". This is a 17 square kilometre map featuring a full British Forces arsenal squaring off against the PLA.

Great job, Rhino. that screenshot looks awesome :D
I voted for you guys, i hope you win that gamflood contest, you deserve it!

Amazing work as always!

One question comes to my mind, though. It's 2:37am and my mind isn't particularly sharp at the moment: is "Battle for Qinling" the 17km map that will be released in 0.6? I couldn't tell if that specifically was the map that we would see in 0.6, or if you were referring to two different 17km maps-- that is, one in 0.6 and another in 0.7.

Thanks in advanced, and again, truly amazing work you folks are doing. We appreciate it!

The battle for qinling will be in .7, Kashan Desert will be featured in .6

Qinling is a v0.7 17 sq km map. Kashan is a v0.6 map that is also 17 sq km.

whats the usual size for pr maps?

How about make a countdown menu to release? I think it'll be pretty good ;)

Desertfox

whats the usual size for pr maps?

1024x2 (Kashan is 1024x4) The main map of kashan is split up into 4 grids, think of a map the size of Al Basrah in each of those squares.

Went and voted, of course.

17km map sounds amazing, BUT: Will it be playable? 64 players on all that land? Or do you have a workaround for the 64 player limit planned?

they are playable, we have proved that with the open beta.... If we did not think they where playable, we would not make them....

Also just to let you guys know, I used L3DT to do the colour maps, overgrowth and undergrowth of the map, but all of that has been edited using photoshop and the BF2editor, + other tools I use :)

we are just planning on using L3DT to 1, speed up production of the maps and 2, give a better quality finish :D

*drools at the picture*.....:o

please say 0.7 is going to be open beta aswell! :p

GREAT WORK DEVS! 0.6 is the best yet, cant wait for the full release.

i have also voted for PR and left a comment.

thanks again, pete

:EDIT:

will the tornado be finished by 0.7, i know harrier and ef are in proving grounds in the beta so im guessing their in it.
(the reason im asking is that i love it, its so damn loud!)

again, thanks for all the work.

Rhino
2007-07-10, 12:29
there is a 98% chance v0.7 will have a Open Beta, if it dont I think I would quit my job as its soo hard to play test maps with only 8 testers max on :p

The picture on gameflood, featuring 0.32 release material really needs updating. Just put the new Rhino challenger pic up.

Good news. I will look how far I will get with the guide. Will post a new revision within the next 24 hours.

Was using the shovel a lot today while testing some things. I have a hard time looking at those anims... maybe I can get some emergency fixes done before 0.6 release... maybe...

Rhino that picture is a work of brilliance, it has been my desktop since i first saw it. Good to see up top of the pile (as we deserve). So, what is PR going to do with the winnings?

Rhino

So, what is PR going to do with the winnings?

already posted in the other topic, going to use it on the site server costs, they are like 150$/mo which is pretty exspencive... the server also runs lots of other stuff for the devs too.

maybe also on some hoocker 'n' blows if theres any spare cash :p

the current one

the EF2000 is abit small in that pic, would upload anouther but aint on my pc at the mo, but you can still see the one ingame at the mo has white wings, and then a gray body, where a real one is gray all over. thats just a start :p

Hey Folks,

Please dont try and spam their downloads and views stuff.. it just makes the community and the mod look petty. We appreciate the thought, but would prefer to be evaluated on real metrics and not an artificial representation of the mod and the community.

thanks.

Our lead has slacked off but I think it's safe to say that with about 36 hours to go, we're going to finish in the top 10 and enter the second round of the competition...

Trigz07
2007-07-15, 19:14
We are already in the top ten i believe we are 3rd theres an rts mod and and rts map thats ahead of us.

I think you only win 3,000 dollars if you get 1st place.

Dropped back to vBF2 the other night and had one moment of something resembling team play (minus any VOIP though) that I realised I have come to expect and love from PR.

I think you guys could have quickly made a RTS or RPG out of the commander view... but thats just me. ;)

And Rhino, I don't wanna send you another message due to reasons given in your response, but here's my apology. And I totally understand.
