PR 1.6 [PRE! release] changelog

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

It has been a long time coming: it's finally time for the 39th major release of PR:BF2 - v1.6! The Project Reality modification for Battlefield 2 is now in its 16th year of ongoing development and this new update is a big one.

With the release of v1.6 right around the corner we wanted to share a preliminary list of all new features, new assets, improvements and fixes. The major addition with v1.6 is of-course the WW2 theater of war being added with fully equipped US and German Forces playable on 5 new maps. What once started as a mini-mod for PR will now be fully integrated into PR:BF2. Next to that we also introduce some new vehicles for other factions as well as a brand new map, countless other improvements, fixes and new features. Read all the details below!

We plan to release PR:BF2 v1.6 in the next two weeks, but unforeseen complications could delay it further. Stay tuned to our social media channels and the forums for more information, media, and of course the release. The wait is almost over!

When its coming ?

Not too long - most people notes that over the years they drop the changelog a week or few before the actual release to build hype and get the word out, get people used to what will be new, etc.  They don't release changelogs just to keep people from wondering if they are still working on it, etc.  Hope that helps you.  No word yet, but you know it's gonna be sweet!  We'll run some events and such after we get things tested, make sure certain maps we want to run work, and those that don't we'll add to the disabled list.. Will be a feeling out process as always, but we'll figure it out in time.

Rereading the changelog I see that they also updated the HUDs for various vehicles. I was wondering for some time now when they'd do that. I had assumed when they introduced sharper HD text in game that they'd be working on vehicle HUD improvements too. The BTRs, spandrel, and BMP ATGM sights definitely needed it.

 

Edit: They forgot to fix the Fennec 50 cal's lack of overheating. But I'm not complaining. ;)

Based on the number and type of changes, very likely this will not exactly be the fastest update in VG PR COOP history - likely every config is gonna need to be made from scratch. 

But like always, whenever they release it, VG will be updated within a few hours.  And as always, when that happens, it won't be fast enough for some people .... so let's all just remember to be patient this time 'round

The VETERANS-GAMING Project Reality COOP Server is now online in 1.6.0.1 -- and sorry to report, it's already full.  

We do not yet have all our settings in place, but we will be adding these in the next day or few as we get up and running again.  All Admins will need to be added back, as you enter the server, you will appear in our logs, so just message =VG= m823us, and he'll get you added to the list (then - in game just run the !init command to make it active)

Thanks for everyone's patience! We had quite a few curve balls this time, and troubleshooting meant backing off changes, etc, then slowly adding them back into place.  Even then, as careful as we are, little mistakes happen, you forget one thing you changed just for testing, and boom... another 5 minutes wasted... you know the drill.  Glad to report it's all well now, and any issues with maps, please report here or our website, and we'll get them forwarded to the correct group and add the map to our Disabled Maps list.

*On that note, the VG Maplist Randomizer System is not yet up and running, and this is only because we need a day or two to evaluate the maps and what works/what doesn't.  So it's restarts to Muttrah after a crash for just a day or two, then we'll get everything back to normal.  Cheers!
