View Full Version : Update Project Reality 0.40 Status Update 2 - July 10th

Hey Folks,

Thought I'd post a quick update here cuz euhhh... the previous one was about 2 weeks old.

PRMM v0.40
We've been hard at work on v0.40 over the last couple of weeks. We're a little off in our first release to testers mainly because of my Canada Day drinking escapades. This release has a lot more features in it than we originally planned for, so it's taking some time to bring it all together.

In terms of a few of the key items, here's where things stand:

- Kit Limiting looks like our approach is going to work!

- Kit Limiting means a class system overhaul which we have mapped out

- XTRACT game mode now includes the ability for a player to be the VIP and we're working on some "Blackhawk Down" type scenarios. We've also added "checkpoints" to this game mode that require the "VIP" to go through more than 1 location to succesfully be extracted. This game mode looks like its going to be a hoot and is coming together very nicely.

- SCENARIO mode is also coming together very nicely. This game mode will be more suited to the tactically oriented gamer, combining two different types of objectives: SECURE and DESTROY. Secure objectives are capturing CPs as BF2 gamers have come to know. DESTROY objectives are objectives to destroy particular assets. There's a bunch of parameters for configuring scenarios and they can be strung together to make for some varied game play dynamics

- We have some new maps in development as well as a bunch of new statics. Some of the new maps are looking outstanding. Some of you also tested the Community Maps and you'll be seeing a couple of these in 0.4. More than likely, we'll be releasing some maps ONLY in certain game modes. By that I mean that a particular map may only be avaible in XTRACT mode. We want to optomise some of the maps for specific game modes and this is going to take a little time with each map and game mode to get things right.

- The Light AT weapons for GB (LAW 80), USMC (AT 4), MEC (RPG 7) and PLA (PF 89) are all well into production

- All the small arms in the game have had an overhaul and we're continuing to tweak them to be more realistic

- The British Infantry are coming along nicely. We have them in game, tho they are using placeholder small arms in certain cases. I'm optomistic that we can get the Brit Infantry into 0.4

BF2 v1.4
It seems as though nothing in the beta BF2 1.4 patch has broken Project Reality v0.31. This is good news for us as we won't get distracted with a PR patch, which would take us away from our next major release. We hope this remains the case so we can stay focussed on 0.4.

The new map in BF2 1.4 Road to Jalalalalalalalabad looks like a great map. It's also very AAS friendly and should be a great Project Reality map.

Timeline
We hope to have the next release of Project Reality done shortly after BF2 1.4 releases. However, v0.40 is a major release for us in terms of features, so we'll know more about what's a realistic timeline as we get into testing.

Thanks for your continued support and enjoyment of Project Reality!

Time to get moving on the voice samples?

The game is getting to the point where the Reality Dev team need to buy matching t-shirts, go visit the EA Devs and giggle hysterically all the way through the tour!

The above question AND how manys sounds can actually be used in PR. Are we talking about 10 - 20 or 40 + ??? And how do they actually compare, is the PR experience enhanced greatly or just abit???

The tweaked weapons thing makes me think of optics being added for the riflleman class...

Seriously guys, give us some eye candy. This news is great, but throw in some sneaky peaky screenshots and we'll be even more excited. :D

eggman

BF2 1.4 should allow us to mix game modes again.

Sounds .. will update on that elsewhere shortly.

Screenshots are really needed, wil get some published once we get this build out to testers.

Good news Eggman. We are all anticipating this release. You guys are doing very good your progress, and this is a great stride for PR I believe. I think we can all agree.

Malik
2006-07-11, 19:51
I think it's time you update that old "PRMM 0.3 coming soon!/out now!" image to incorporate "PRMM 0.4 coming soon!", along with new images showcasing new media. 0.4's gonna rock, but let's just hope the community's a lot better when it comes out. I had a not so fun game today on PRMM because no one was working together and they were abusing support and sniper as usual.

Thank eGor and KoC .. KoC's crazy experiments have been used by just about every BF2 mod team in existence. And eGor used them to do some amazing work with the kit limiting.

Still some issues to iron out. I was able to uh.. confuse it the other day... woldn't give me any more kits even tho I should have been able to get them... but those kinda bugs are expected and, I hope, should be relatively easy to resolve (in comparison to actually finding a workable kit limiting approach).

Good news. Now don't get rushed in to releasing!
I know the pressure can get pretty high even from within the ranks... :oops:
But I'll stand by my words now, Take your time and make it as right as you can.

Looking forward to the release, whenever that may be.

Great mod guys and 0.4 sounding awesome. I cant tell you how much I am looking forward to class limits. I think it will really make the game better and discourage a lot of lone wolfing that detracts from the style of PRMM.

As always, take your time and ensure another quality release

Kudos

Huge thanks to eGor and KoC, then! Really excited about this (as I'm sure you can tell :-P) Now if only I could see these new light AT weapons ;-)

Since the VIP is playable will you make a new player skin for the VIP, or a whole VIP Class...

or will the VIP just be like a standard rifleman.


Thanks for the update

Dylan
2006-07-12, 02:17
Edub, I am thinking that they might (keyword) be making the VIP role replace commander on Xtract.

VIP will look different than the rest of the players. Optionally. Could be the same as the rest, but that wouldn't be too exciting. Initially will be a Pilot kit and missions will be pilot rescue kinda stuff. We'll expand on that in the future.

eggman
2006-07-12, 18:21
If 0.4 incudes all the stuff we are trying to get into it (Brit Infantry and a couple of Brit vehicles), the next release after will be 1.0 (remaining British assets).

Following 1.0 our current plan is to do a 1.1 release (any missing Brit assets as well as new stuff) and then are going to re-evaluate where we are at and decide what to do from there.

Once we're "freed up" from doing the Brit stuff, we can take a look at new directions for the mod.

Great to hear. It might be an idea for us all to start publicising this. Also could you create the signature thing again like you did when 0.3 was coming out so we can have it on all the other forums we might frequent.

Maybe a big ad on this sites homepage might also be a good idea.

In Australia (i.e. where I am), 11th of the 11th is Remembrance Day,
undoubtedly because 11th of the 11th is Armistice Day from WW1...
the 11th hour of the 11th day of the eleventh month being the enaction
of the treaty...

Is the release of 0.4 tied to this or just pure happenchance ?

thought it was a hell of a coincidence

Let's hope that before running off to boot up the mod some will take a moment to pay respect to those of all nationalities that have died in the course of trying to make the world a better place. Perhaps one day we will see war only in the virtual world, and it will become more fiction than fact.

Having said that, can't wait for the mod, thanks for all the hard work guys!

It's great new's to hear about the imminent release of 0.40, I haven't been this excited about a mod update for year's. I can't wait to see what you guy's have come up with. Of all the mod's that I have played for Battlefield 2 this is the only mod that comes close to that gritty level of realism that I alway's long for in my games. Ever since the day's of Operation Flashpoint & Resistance i've alway's felt extremely dissapointed with most of the the other FPS wargames that have followed, they all seem to have steered away from realism in favour of arcade action style gameplay, which may be fine for younger player's but for people of my age i'm alway's looking for something much more realistic and challenging. Project Reality just feel's so much better when compared to the other mod's that I have played. The increased realism add's so much more tension to the game. When I see other people actually ducking and taking cover to avoid bullet's instead of jumping around like a bunch of crazed rabbit's on coke, it's a much more enjoyable and immersive gaming experience. :mrgreen:

Thank's for all of your effort's, I can't wait for 0.40
