PR:Vietnam update
Posted in: Uncategorized
Posted 2011-09-21 at 16:55 by Matrox

Well, most of the devs are now coming out of hiding after having a break from the latest patches. Our next stage of development has been focusing on what we want to do with the PR:V mod and how we are going to incorporate it.

We are following the route of including it within the next PR release, rather than a stand alone mod. That way, everyone gets to download it and people don't have to worry about switching mods all the time. (It also cuts our workload by a half, but thats beside the point :wink:)

We have started making further headway with the first release, and what we are anticipating to do with it. We would really like to bring back some of the older, now outdated maps such as Ghost Train, Tad Sae, and perhaps even Road to Kyonganinoningingoningsomething. We are also looking at developing some larger 2km maps, with the mindset that we would like some form of aerial presence in the form of helicopters.

Our main reason for deciding to bring back 1km maps follows our gameplay design for the weapons. We are looking towards focusing the battles at a closer distance, with a mixture of semi-auto and automatic weapons. The M16 we will be using for the US will only have 20 rounds in comparison to the AK47 30 round mag. To counter this, we gave the US 20 round mags for the M16, whereas the SKS Siminov will only have 10. It's assymetric, in that the NVA will probably fare better in CQB than the US, however we feel both sides should balance each other out.
I've created a list of the kits below for you to see what we have provisionally down. Our first release we aim to be looking at including just the USMC and NVA factions:

So as you can see, we have a fair bit of development to do. None of these lists are final, and we are trying to work out a compromise between balancing the factions and authenticity. What we would like to iterate is that development has picked up, the mod is not dead and it is moving forward. Over the next few months more information and images will come out as and when the other devs deem fit. Hopefully, there will also be some in-game screen shots in the not so distant future.

Seeing as all dev blogs need at least some images and not just a wall of text, have a look below:

    Great! Just great! So, in the next version of PR we will choose between maps or something like in "Battlefield: bad Company 2"? When in the main menu you can press "Vietnam" mod.

    I guess we'll find some vietnam maps in the pr:vanilla map roulation or perhaps even vietnam-specific servers.

    excellent read, nice to see that:
    A. a real team is working on pr:v now instead of a few individuals (all respect for Trahn Lee and Afterdune of course)
    B. pr:v is starting to take shape by now (sort of public design plan ftw!)
    C. 30rd m16 mags are being boycotted(yay!)
    D. SKS riflegrenades.

    just one thing guys: m16/AK47 UGL?

    We will form it so it should come up in the map rotation. It will allow the server admins to decide whether or not they want to play the maps, or even if they wish to have a vietnam specific server. It should give the community a greater opportunity to play the Vietnam mod.

    We are also looking into the possibility of releasing more maps after the release as DLC or map packs. That way, Server Admins who do run Vietnam only servers should have a wide enough variety to keep their server populations going strong.

    So good decision! And about AKM? Will be it in Project Reality: Vietnam mod?
