-Project Reality v0.71 Patch Update
With the release of Project Reality v0.7 now over two weeks old, we have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the community, but our work is far from over with v0.7. As expected with any major release, some issues have been identified that we are currently working to address in a patch, including the well known commander asset bug. Our current plan of attack is to release two separate patches on two separate dates. The first will be a server-side patch that will address some of the more critical bugs found in v0.7. Shortly after the server-side patch, we then plan on releasing a client-side patch. More information on what will be fixed and changed in the patch will come at a later date, but rest assured we are working hard behind closed doors to make the Project Reality experience the best it can be.

Your continued feedback is always appreciated and greatly received by the PR Development Team. If you encounter any bugs that have not already been reported, please post them in our Bug Section (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f26-pr-bugs/) on the Project Reality forums (https://www.realitymod.com/forum/).


-Royal Air Force Harrier GR9 W.I.P.
We have also begun pre-production on our next release, Project Reality v0.8. While still in the very early planning stages, we would like to present you with some eye-candy from what we plan on being one of the center pieces in v0.8, the Royal Air Force Harrier GR9. We decided to completely scrap our original GR7 model and replace it with the jaw-dropping new GR9 model and texture from our very own [R-DEV]Stigger. To complete the new Harrier, Stigger also modeled its entire payload, including the Lockheed Martin Paveway II LGB (Laser Guided Bomb), AGM-65 Maverick missile, and the Brimstone Anti-Armour missile. These new ordinance models will not be limited to just the Harrier GR9, but will also be outfitted on various other aircraft.

Can't wait til the server side patch. That commander issue really needs to be resolved. This is why I am glad that 0.7 was released sooner rather then just wait for it after New YEars because something like this was bound to pop up. Hopefully, the G3 issues will be resolved too or at least balanced.

Yeah Great job on the part of the devs! Also any chance we will see the Russian, and Chinese equals to these modeled and placed on their aircraft as well? It would help out a lot in the realism department to have the other nations have their stuff as well. Plus it would make the mod stand out over normal BF2 where all bombs look the same, and all weapons look the same on aircraft.

BTW: GJ on the missile models! Finally we will have proper A10 Thunderbolt twos with Maverick missiles! I can't wait for that! Man I hope we get some new pilot only squad commands like shooter shooter/ Maverick Maverick......... and the like.

It's code for the A10s to roll in on target and shoot off their Maverick missiles at the target. Stuff like this would help out a lot for pilots. We could say watch you six! and other stuff that would make the player feel like they are rely flying a jet in a combat zone.

Also any plans to include two seater aircraft? We know it can be done with the BF2 choppers. Why not with jets as well? It was cool in BF2 to sit in the back of a F-15E Strike Eagle and use the TV guided missiles to attack the enemy with.

I was wondering why the Devs don't make any adjustments to the Humvee or any of the other jeeps that are ingame? Jets are cool and all but I for one and I'm sure there are many others who barely fly in them cause people still TK over them and also there are such long lines.

Heres to hoping that you guys will make some adjustments to the humvee. Specifically I would like to see a humvee without the open back but a closed one instead. That isn't that big of a change.

That was funny... :p Hauler, things are more complicated than they seem, and remember that we are a team of volunteers doing this on our spare time. ;)

2008-01-19, 01:43
All I'm saying is that making a completely new Jet must take a lot of time so I'm wondering why you guys don't make realistic Humvees. I feel that would be so much more widely used by many more people then the Harrier. I understand that you guys are doing this out of your spare time but all Im asking is for a realistic humvee not a jet or huge tank or something. Is there anything that you guys are working on for the very near future with that? Of course I know that the Humvee can't just be made in a couple of hours but it would be awesome to know that you guys are working on something for the future and at least have the thought of making one.

The problem is that usually people just think about the US stuff (like you did). What about the chinese and MEC vehicles that are open as well? These are all stuff we need to think about.

I took sometime off from the game and I will be the first to tell you that I was a huge advocate of making and upgrading the MEC and Chinese stuff when I would post more regularly. I just ask about the U.S humvee cause I mean it was just on my mind, but please don't be mistaken I would love to see improvements to the other factions stuff as well. You can even look at my previous posts that I did around 0.6, 0.5 maybe. The devs do a fantastic job all Im wondering is is there any kind of thought going into the U.S. Humvee at this time?

It is being worked on by a member of the community:

The main aim of PR from the start, and still is, is to complete a British faction. The only core element missing from the British faction was airpower at this stage, so the Harrier GR9 has been created. This is far more important to gameplay (and to mapping also) than working on an already existing vehicle.

Where human resources are concerned, we have limited numbers of staff who can provide input to the various build stages of a new asset ingame, but as you can see, that doesn't in any way take away from the end product. Unfortunately it invariably means slower output, so we need to carefully prioritise what we need, and when. Hence an overall design plan which is worked on and followed with each release.

So, reworking an already ingame asset just to put topcover on is lower than finally providing the UK faction with air assets, which will complete the whole 'tri-service' element of the BF series for the British forces.

However, you will see in the next major release (0.8 wise), that we will be reworking the US faction (all being well).

Give it a couple of days to be edited and cleaned up by the Xfire Team or the R-PUBs.

There was a lot of text and it was pretty fast paced, so give them some time to make it look nice and easily readable. We should see it up soon.

Speaking of Xfire... I'm not sure if this is the place to suggest it, but I know we have a PR Steam Community, but steam doesn't really track us when we play BF2/PR... so I'm wondering if there are any plans to add a PR Xfire Community?

First off I would like to thank all the Devs and everyone who has taken part in creating the best gaming experience I have had in over 20 years of playing computer games:D

I know you Devs are pretty busy,how ever I would also like to see the FAMAS available and if you also have time the Leclerc tank not to mention Mirage2000 or Rafale.

If you need any tech. spec. we have many pages of lifted info all put together in our forum at the =MBO= website http://mbo.clangrid.com/main.asp?page=dp&dis=829109

I am more than happy to try and obtain what ever images and tech info you may need in order for you to accomadate my request.

Thank you once again, you are a fine example of what team work can achieve from the basic game play right through to the continued excellent development of PR We are not worthy.
