Arrow Project Reality v0.85 Features Update

With the upcoming release date (Friday 23rd) drawing nearer, we feel that now is a good time to release some info about the features of Project Reality v0.85.

Project Reality v0.85 Manual
As with with every release of Project Reality, [R-DEV]Spearhead has put together a detailed PDF Manual explaining all the new, and old, game play changes to accommodate both beginner and veteran players. This should make for some good reading material while you wait for your download to finish

Taliban Faction
In v0.85, the Taliban will take over from the Insurgents on all of our Afghanistan based maps. Gameplay wise, the Taliban will be similar to the Insurgents but with certain aspects of "PR Conventionalism". They will have Rally Points and the ability to request kits from weapon caches.

Chechen Rebels
We've redefined the former "Militia" as the "Chechen Rebels". Upgrades include new kit load outs for both spawn and requested kits, as well as their very own Chechen Flag

Kalashnikov Series
Over the past few months the PR team has been expanding our Kalashnikov collection. There are five brand new Kalashnikov's for you to play with across multiple factions, each with many variants and additions!
- AK-47
We could no longer justify using the original BF2 model to represent the most iconic rifle in the world! Modelled by [R-DEV]Katarn, Skinned by [R-CON]FIST, Exported by [R-DEV]Katarn and Animated by [R-DEV]Chuc, the new AK-47 really gets the detail it truly deserves and adds a lot to the Insurgent, Taliban and Chechen Militia Factions. Many players will be feeling very content spraying some Soviet era ammo down range with this beauty!

- AK-47 Bayonet
Modelled by [R-DEV]Katarn, Skinned by [R-CON]FIST, Exported by [R-DEV]Katarn and Animated by [R-DEV]Chuc, the AK-47 Bayonet really gives you some added reach for those bayonet charges.

- AK-74M
As previously showcased, the AK-74M is the main assault rifle of the new Russian Forces. Ironsight, 1P29 Optics, and GP-25 variants are all included.

- AK-74
The original AK-74 series used by the Insurgents, Chechen Militia and the Taliban.

- AKS-74U
The AKS-74U is a shorter version of the AK-74, designed to be small and lightweight making it perfect for vehicle crews and for combat in small, enclosed spaces. Used by the Russian Forces, the Insurgents, Chechen Militia and the Taliban its going to be a very popular weapon in-game for those who want a nice, small, fast firing weapon. The model is courtesy of the United States Intervention mod from Black Sands Studios.

- Al-Quds
An Iraqi made heavy-barrelled version of the AK. The Al-Quds is a good medium for both laying down suppressive fire as well as being used effectively on the move. Yet another weapon courtesy of the United States Intervention mod from Black Sands Studios.

T-72 MBT
With Project Reality v0.85, the MEC will be using the Russian made T-72. In a future release we plan to replace this with the T-72M1M, which is the modern export version of the T-72. Again, thanks goes to the United States Intervention mod from Black Sands Studios who have done a wonderful job on this tank.

PF-98 Heavy Anti-tank
The PLA have finally received their own Heavy Anti-Tank weapon. The PF-98 is essentially a 120mm bazooka. Unlike the SRAW, or the Eryx, it has no guidance system. It can, however, be deployed quicker and still packs a deadly punch.

Full List of New Features in v0.85
If you want to see the full list of new features including new weapons, vehicles, maps and gameplay changes, check out this Developer Journal post for it!

Mod of the Year 2008 Phase 2 Voting
We would just like to put out a reminder about the MOTY Phase 2 Voting for anyone who has not yet voted in Phase 2. We ask that you vote for your favorite mod(s) from across the board. If you think Project Reality deserves your vote and deserves the MOTY award, we would very much appreciate it. Every vote counts - registering is free, quick and easy and registered users votes are worth a lot more than guest votes so please register before voting if you really want your vote to count! For more information on MOTY and how to vote, click HERE.

Project Reality v0.8 Server Release Information
All server administrators with current licenses will be sent the Project Reality v0.85 server files as soon as they are available via the Licensed PR Game Server Admin CP. Those of you hoping to run new Project Reality servers must first complete a Project Reality server license application and become approved before you can get the server files so the sooner you do it the better since processing of your application may take some time.

Important note regarding 0.85 download options

As with the past several releases, we've been bombarded with requests for a 0.8->0.85 incremental patch. Unfortunately, we won't be able to provide one. This decision was made so that the development of Project Reality could be far more efficient. We've had problems with having incremental patches in the past which hampered bug fixing efforts and slowed down development. As such, we decided to go with a full install for the development of v0.85. Hopefully all of you with bandwidth limitations will be lenient with us for making this decision.

That's all from us for now folks, keep your eyes on the Project Reality site and forums for more information on the much anticipated v0.85 release!

Yea! Awesome update. This didn't have anything to do with the nagging on IRC, did it? I'm joking, if anything it probably delayed the news

Good work, and let's see this build role into action. Thanks DEVs
