Good catch. It's not going to be a big deal since this one is temporary due to the new model.

We've got a few changes coming for infantry, too! Sneaking around will hide your name and take you off radar, a lot of the weapons have been adjusted and there's a dynamic accuracy system, we've got sprinting and jumping changes, etc.

Soldiers also self-heal out of combat in case you win a victory far from your base or a medic, so you don't need to just jump off a cliff or suicide-rush the defenses. I'm not sure that's realistic, though, but it works well in testing.

Well, we've always got the option to revise it, but after an internal discussion with the test team we decided we were creeping closer and closer to getting maybe too simmy, with increasingly specific hit locations, shell drop, talking of making shell damage change based on range, etc.

We were starting to make damage change based on things like shooting the engines vs the different rotors of a helicopter, and thought, maybe we should step back for a moment :)

We've had real life issues crop up with a lot of our art guys, which has delayed the inclusion of new artwork assets. For example, the new hands need to be properly rigged/prepped, and before that can happen, new weapons and animations can't go in.

But that's been sidelined due to events and priorities, so they're not in yet. If you want to help or know somebody who does, let us know.

No offense taken at all. We actually had dialog with Renegade X much earlier, and did some experimentation on UDK ourselves after seeing their successes (porting assets, testing some gameplay, etc).

In the end we decided against it for a few reasons, but have taken the time to re-evaluate the option now and then. Seeing the UE4 SDK demonstration got us excited actually, and if there is a "UDK 4" we'll definitely play with that... although it will likely mean starting from scratch in terms of the gameplay mechanics.

That one I linked was supposed to have the option to skip it. I don't have a handy version of the current launcher build you can simply extract, but I'll try to get one up sometime. Please end a PM to Danpaul on our forum as he is responsible for the launcher and its installer and may be able to help.

We've had this feedback from several people so far and might look into making those changes, but we don't want to make it TOO complicated (although apparently there's an audience for more sophisticated damage models due to games like WoT and Warthunder).

Chronojam Jun 27 2013, 9:02pm replied:

To clarify what's happening, a ".NET Profile" is not your account/login/userinfo in that sense of the word "profile," it is an "installation profile" that describes a subset of the .NET Framework.

You may be familiar with some installers that have installation profiles like "Full" or "Light" or "Custom." The Microsoft .NET Framework has the options of either Full or Client. Because we do not require the full profile, the installation ensures you have a working copy of the client profile instead.

The installation/repair/handling (and naming) is poorly handled by Microsoft's installers.

As a side note, beginning with .NET Framework v4.5, Microsoft redesigned the deployment options such that there IS no client profile -- every deployment gets the same full set of libraries.

That's a good way of putting it. Don't expect a "Renegade reskin," there will be some fresher ideas at work. There are some neat things we wanted to try in APB or AR that wouldn't fit there but would make sense in this setting, too.

The M24 fits the bill in terms of size, firepower, role, movement, and general shape. The Pattons were actually medium tanks (around three times the Chaffee's weight) with much more powerful main guns, and much more armor.

Chronojam Nov 28 2011, 5:30pm replied:

After very careful deliberation, a decision was made to allow Nod to keep the higher-tier plasma-shooting footsoldier they had in earlier releases (with minor redesigns). This will allow them to fend off heavily armored GDI units when their single final-tier Cyborg Commando is unavailable. Otherwise, they would need several veteran Rocket Soldiers available. He's been renamed the Confessor instead of his old name, Kerubim.

As a consolation prize so that you can play Gamma vicariously, I've instructed the testers to start gathering some extra video during their testing. In a couple weeks we can put together a new video montage so that you'll have a better feeling for how Gamma plays out, even if we are currently not allowed to give you a copy of the game itself.

Sorry to be such a tease.

If you're not keen on hearing invisible tanks driving around and don't mind never finding a sniper again, sure. If announcements bother you, there is a toggle for just those, just as there is a slider for music and in-game sounds. It's really, really dumb to mute your game.

I unfortunately got less of the attack than I had hoped recorded there, but yes, I already had taken a few shells and was at critical health when the final shots whizzed up and lit me on fire, giving quite a kick to the screen.

These might seem little minor features, but they add a lot of feel and personality to the fights that was definitely missing.
