Masirah
 
We are pleased to announce that a new map will be featured in the next content patch for Project Reality.

Masirah, based on the real life location of the same name, is a map by Rabbit that has been sitting on the bench for a while. Thanks to some free time during lockdown we've been able to bring the map up for inclusion.

Aside from a new locale we're also introducing some new gameplay features. Main bases for both teams are, currently lacking a proper model, a Mistral class lookalike carrier situated outside of the map, similar to Falklands. It will be up to both French and MEC teams to utilise their air and waterborne assets to reach the mainland.


To deal with base protection in outside terrain we've now implemented a Python-based DOD system coded by
[R-DEV]AlonTavor that replaces the vanilla DOD system which otherwise doesn't work in outside terrain. The end result is roughly a 6x4km playable area seen below with adequate base protection for both teams.

MEC carrier? interesting

Yaaaaaay! Another French forces new map! Can’t wait! Only French vs Mec version? And AAS only?
Thanks again for new content guys!

Nice!!
With this concept of no fixed landbase for both teams, I think CnC would actually be a very valid and interesting gamestyle.

Maybe cool to test with a dedicated event?

Interesting map, would be interesting to see the flag layouts regarding to the carrier locations.

It will take forever for amphibious vehicles to reach the shore and from there, the frontline. Consider this.

Also, I suggest swapping MEC for China, MEC is overused and widely disliked. Besides, China is about to get 2 new LHDs.

That is why BMP-2M has 10 minute respawn time.

THANK YOU,

More maps please instead of useless fiddling with shit that does not need changing. Dont experiment with us.

Could we get a co-op map for this map as well?

No worse than muttrah and Pavlosk.

VTRaptor 2020-07-05 17:31

Re: Masirah
 
Well on Pavlovsk APCs start their engagement while still in the water and the distance on Muttrah is shorter and travelled quicker as AAVP is pretty fast in water and has 7,5 minute respawn, plus Muttrah is 2k and Pavlovsk up until now has been the only such map.

In any case, seeing same bluefor factions fighting same opfor factions over and over again got too boring for me. Why won't we see FR fighting GB? Or GER fighting PL? And I'm not talking just about this map, but all maps. It's like we are being denied any new unique experience. There's just nothing to see, just another "russia+china+mec bad" "nato good". I can tell that the map is good as i've played it on local, but as a player I got too tired of repetitiveness, even though this game stands out in that regard.

Maybe you should make a map then and use those factions.

Do you have numbers on how MEC is widely disliked.

We have like 4 French maps right now and only a single one with French vs MEC, so this is hardly the same BluFor as on everything else.

Indeed! It’s crazy people are never satisfied whatever the amount of new content you guys still manage to provide since 16 years now on a Free now standalone game ... this is so sad...

Btw I’m totally looking foward for this map it looks pretty neat! Keep up the good work guys!

VTRaptor 2020-07-06 15:25

Re: Masirah
 
Never said there's something wrong with the French, but I see that the actual point I've stated clearly got straight up ignored. Out of ~50 modern faction maps (no vietnam, falklands nor ww2) there's like 15 instances of mec, mostly as opfor. These are the numbers for you.

Why can't we have Germany vs Britain, France vs Poland, Canada vs USA, Netherlands vs IDF? Why can't we have nice things?

Because muttrah isnt that far from masirah as both are part of Oman and it would seem strange that it wouldn't be mec.

This would be really nice to have some Of those BLUFOR clash of the titans been waiting this to happen for years, even tried a suggestion thread that was never followed :(

Re: Masirah
 
If you want NATO vs NATO maps then start making one. Going around and suggesting it will not make map.

VTRaptor 2020-07-06 16:30

Re: Masirah
 
Like one map would make a difference, right. Diversifying factions on current maps is far easier and changing a lot more than creating a single map and was done in various map packs, events. But these were again, events.

I'm not around anymore, but some time ago I've heard that actually making one map featuring many different factions using their own commo rose voices is doable and at a low cost in disc space.

If that is possible, then why not.

Yes the PRTA tourney did it recently, it's basically a map loading files from another map.



The idea is its own discussion.

Replace bmp2m with bmp 3. Bmp2 is just going to get deleted in nearly every engagement instantly. At least the bmp 3 has the cannon launched atgm.

wut, bmp2m is better than the bmp3.

PatrickLA_CA 2020-07-06 20:02

Re: Masirah
 
Yeah, everyone knows 1 ATGM is better than 4 ATGMs that can be launched near instantly one after another.

Well there is a delay on the firing of the atgm for bmp 2. FOr the bmp 3 its instant and almost like a cannon.

Maybe a working catapult and working runway restraints? that seems possible seeing as (Atleast the last time I checked) the french jet has a tail hook.

If that works ^ the next thing is to just make the carrier have a angular deck

Re: Masirah
 
Mistrals are not American carriers and they can not support fix wing jets. For that, you would need to make complitly new carrier static.

We could use the british carrier and modify it abit to allow the tail hook to actually work and mean something. (Unrealistic but who gives a shit rn, we've been having russians on a cargo boat for years!)

Then what about mec, should they get fighters too to balance out? What should they be using? Now you just enter a rabbit hole no pun intended.
