About War Today: Five-Day War with 0 comments by Aleksandar_Djokic on Sep 21st, 2013

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.

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.
