Hell in the Pacific 0.5 beta release

Finally after many years of development, we witness the first release of Hell in the

Pacific, a mod that tries to cover the events that took place in Asia and the Pacific

during the Second World War.

We decided to give our first release the rather arbitrary version number 0.5. We felt the

need to release the mod now for various reasons, but would like to point out that the

mod is still in beta phase as there are many unfinished and missing things we have yet

to implement.

This first release is dedicated to land combat in the Pacific and the India/Burma

theatres, mainly on the finished or at least almost finished maps 'Tarawa', 'Peleliu' and

'Kohima Ridge'.

We will include other WIP islands as well, so you can see what we are working on.

The same is true for many of the air and sea components of the mod. These things are

still in beta stage of development, but will be included as some sort of sneak peek

or preview.

Feature List

Below is a small feature list of what is included in HIP 0.5 beta:

-Three factions complete with vehicles and aircraft

-Three more or less finished islands along with some very WIP ones

-Several Modules that add new features like Logistics, Artillery, Suppression, ...

-A mission pack

Congratulations! I suppose the coop missions include respawnvive? Any chance for non-respawnvive missions or version of the existing ones without it?
