*Tigershark puts his mature hat on and ignores the flaming*
Posted this in the OFPEC forums. I am posting this news but please be aware will not reply to questions raised by this. I think our approach has been explained and understood by many in this thread. Use this, if you will, to stimulate discussion amongst yourselves.
Vyper....as you quite correctly said...the darkness IS almost away. Guys...I know this being kept in the dark is a little frustrating. Let me be candid with you guys...the hardcore fans.
Believe me when I tell you it is just as frustrating for me, keeping these things quiet, as it is for you guys not knowing anything or getting cryptic answers.
The guys at BAS are doing some TRULY AMAZING stuff....stuff that I guarantee will blow your minds....Nagual's island continues to amaze me with each beta version....you simply cannot imagine what a rich and diverse playing environment this is. It represents months of work and thousands of man hours from various members of the team. This island will have something for everyone....and we plan on releasing just not the island .....you should have everything you need to get started mission making and MPing with it. Can't elaborate too much on this...use your imagination.
On the weekend we got to MP test the MH-60s as a team.....it was a sh*tload of fun.....the scripts seemed to work ok....visually it was stunning to see Deltas and Rangers fast rope out of the helo as I held it at a hover over the target area...dust swirling as they descended...these helos going to rock!! I was so impressed by them and by Naguals island I took a sh*tload of pics...if only I could share them with ya
The Deltas and Rangers look exquisite....Ebud has done a magnificent job improving on something I thought was pretty d**n good already. The whole BAS team is pretty much using these now....and we have a JAM beta that is now integrated with them so things are progressing there as well. Seals are also great.
The whole Desert vehicles pack will bring some of the best modernised vehicles to the game...with all the lumps, bumps and gear you see on vehicles in modern day conflict. Angusheaf was posting pics of the Abrams new aiming reticule/sight. The attention to detail in this sight alone should win over the hardcore fans of the game. In true BAS style, we spare no expense when it comes to attention to detail.
Then we have the OPFOR...of which you've seen some pics...this project is snowballing with it's scope increased and more units being developed literally everyday.
If that's not enough...we also have a script developing for a full blown campaign that will be part of a special project we will be developing with another party...we can't announce details just yet. But depending on the timing, we may even take this script and use it with Nagual's island and write another script for our special project.
I can't stress enough that there is some very COOL and WELL THOUGHT OUT sh*t going down at BAS....and it will all be shared with you guys in good time. There is a sh*tLOAD going on at BAS behind the scenes...and ITS ALL GOOD!.....so I'm sorry we aren't sharing all of it....but then again....we are bringing back the old tradition of being pleasantly surprised when something gets released. Within the next month....you are going to be inundated with new toys that are going to keep you entertained until BIS' next release. This, I can promise! Or you can have your money back
And then after any new BIS release....you can be assured we will be working to get our addons working with their new environments, weapons, techniques and units. The future is bright gentlemen. Thanks for your support and keep the faith!
