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.

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.

Hopefully soon enough (in upcoming weeks) we shall have better news of our new features. I am not allowed to tell you fellas what it is but I can hint it:
"one leaves a smaller pipe,
flying as a bomb,
where it hits it's a sight
flying over the comb.

the other one you can guide,
to make enemy scared,
as it flies cable stay,
so you get overturned."

Hope it helps figuring out two new features under development :)
(and that my little song is not that bad :)

Can't confirm anything (it's against common sense to confirm something that's not fully implemented) but let's just say one type of our rifle can plop something bigger than a bullet and some objects are flying in a rather controlled fashion :)
hope it helps

Some people always love to whine about weapon ranges. But in practice even 180 meter gun ranges are hard to handle when your not on totally flat open ground. Above that you cant see the target from your vehicle on the same screen in direct control mode, the enemy will be always on another screen than your own unit, this makes direct controlling a nightmare on maps with difficult terrain and obstacles. GEM engine map sizes are not meant for realistic ranges. When an Mp40 acts as a MG42 and kills a whole squad with 1 mag, you know something isnt right.
Also these people are a vocal minority. GSM and other mods went with longer ranges and enhanced lethality, but the greater part of players hate that.
AS devs made their expansion more accurate but still had to make a ton of historic sacrifices to not totally screw up the gameplay.
GSM and historical accuracy fans dont really care about that, they are ok with unbalanced matches played exclusively on the largest totally open maps, but even they sometimes moan, since they cant flank attack when even the smallest AT gun can kill a scout car/light tank half way across the map.

Hello,
I have a question. Will you adjust the ranges for this game?
I want battles in the distance of at least 150m for rifles.
In MoW and AS the ranges are ****. You always fight at ranges of 50m.
Great mod and keep it up!

I can confirm ranges are larger and are still under balancing. Our goal is to create "realistic" ranges, if that's even possible. Fair enough, you don't really fight on 300, 400 meters with assault rifles (you can fire of course but accuracy is low) but then again we don't want to limit you to 30 or 50 meters for a gunfight. Cannons and tanks have way larger range. Can't disclose exact numbers but it's going to be interesting, especially in the MP. I have a feeling people will tend to run to urban areas, to get some cover ;)

How will ATGMs work in the game? Will they be like RPGs or have a special guided feature?

Our programmers are currently working on this feature, to make it fully guided. Problem of course is that there are several generations of them which differ in accuracy, speed, guidance etc. Plus some of them are fired from the IFV turrets (and some from tank barrels). We hope that this feature works out, community will be by all means notified of the progress :)
