The basic idea in creating this game is to bring realistic gaming to a new level. Game goal is to carefully recreate the events of August 2008, during the brief war in Georgia. One of the main goals is to create documentary project, following historic and personal records of the aforementioned events. Game development team is dedicated to create new balance and gameplay with interesting missions and places which include unique elements of the society on which them are based.

After months of work our programmer had finally managed to work out under barrel grenade launchers.
As you know, GEM engine strictly forbade to have secondary weapon on a rifle. One rifle = one weapon. There were attempts to overcome this by having 2 rifles on a soldier, one firing grenade, one firing rifle ammunition.

We now have functional grenade launcher. Currently we have AK-74 with GP-25 which is working but planning to add even more. Principle of work is quite simple:

1. select a soldier that carries AK-74 with GP-25 (another good thing is that whole operation is not linked to a soldier but to the rifle itself so any soldier can fire it)
2. select appropriate action (grenade launcher)
3. click on a place to fire there

Or you can take direct control and click right mouse button (to load the launcher) and left mouse button (to fire it). Simple and effective. And most important thing is: as soon as you fire it you can fire assault rifle ammunition, as visible here:


We also plan on some GUI enhancements to ease up exploitation of this new feature. This will surely change multiplayer a lot, no more super squads armed with RG-6. Grenadiers are now in their true form.

Maybe they are also working on Crimean expansion pack. Or saw the Wargame Red Dragon naval trailer and want missile cruisers in it too. ^^
We rarely see ships used in GEM engine games. :(

Now that the games development is dragging on you might as well change the subject to the upcoming ukrainian civil war to make it more fresh and exciting. ^^ Though you would need some new art assets in case of a EU/NATO intervention.

They should do status updates _at least_ monthly. And you dont need an overpaid PR guy to tell the would be community how are they doing. But yeah indie companies still sck at self promotion.

When they get a publisher that will put it on Steam. Or get a Greenlight campaign going. And what good would a blank Steam page do us? Game wont be finished faster.

Also the paid early mini campaign idea got shelved it seems.

If indie devs are wondering how to do proper PR without actually paying for anything, they should check out Star Citizen. CIG comes out with daily+weekly development updates, and what do you know, people give them millions of dollars every month just for lulz.
