Tech levels that unlock as you play are new in Gamma, and if that goes well, they will be tied to Tech Center buildings for future versions.

It started some years ago as just a downloadable mod package file for a bit of a niche FPS game you probably haven't heard of, C&C Renegade.

It's now entirely stand-alone, fairly incompatible with the original game, and through some talks we've had, entirely free and legal to play without having Renegade.

Not really, there is no recoil from firing longer; it's all built into the static cone of fire.

It's sort of a silly map we're trying just for fun, inspired by the silly expansion "lunar" map. RA_Luna has you jumping around in low gravity, collecting your crates back before the Soviets can get them.

In Gamma, 2.0.0, the Phase Tank has more armor and fires faster. It's worth the price for sure. Chronotanks will make it eventually.

We made this decision a while back. The unit in APB is a Phase Tank, a production-line model of the Phase Transport prototype from the RA1 expansion levels. Unlike the Phase Transport, the Phase Tank is intended as a combat unit instead of an infantry carrier.

If you have a computer that will run Windows 2000, you are likely able to play. If you want to run with anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, specularity and normal mapping, widescreen, while teamspeak is running with IRC and the forum in the background with your own music playing... then you need progressively more powerful hardware that will support these things.

For years I played with a GeForce Mx440 64mb card worth about $4. The lowest-playable specs are dreadfully low.

Check out Apb.game-maps.net (it is a fansite that has tons of APB-related downloads including maps and mapping assets)

APB will run on Windows 7 (tested on RC build 7100). LevelEdit will also run, but you should disable visual themes and run in XP SP3 compatibility for best results.

Be sure to verify your registry settings; a common cause for APB to not work is a video render device key with an extra " " on the end of the renderer name, and a common reason for LevelEdit to crash on load is an invalid path to your APB installation.

We're not really trying for "FPS shotguns" like you have in every other game with five-foot-range 00buckshot in a double barreled gun. Instead, both of our pump-action single-barrel shotguns have two uncommon ammunition types that serve a good purpose.

The primary mode for each is an incendiary round, good out to 40 meters. It is useful against people, light vehicles, the internal (no-armor) structure of heavier vehicles, and most buildings. The damage is based on how many pellets hit, but as long as at least one strikes you have about a 90% chance to cause a set amount of lasting burn damage.

The Allied secondary mode is a very accurate single slug that is effective out to around the range of the M60 & PKM, and it will one-shot-kill any soldier with a headshot, and it's reasonable against vehicles still.

The Soviet secondary mode is a cloud of death for rather close ranges, with a large cone of fire but no incendiary effects. It is useless against vehicles and buildings, but at closer ranges it will do a one-shot-kill as long as you hit the torso with most of the pellets.

If you are concerned about the shotgun appearance, a quick reminder: our shotguns aren't shooting buckshot, they are actually shooting a combination of zarconium and phosphorus. They are incendiary shells which is why you take lasting burn damage from them. You can check out some real ones firing at Youtube.com and in related videos.

This notice has been added to the original blog posting as well.

It's more of a branch off Renegade's W3d, which was off what earlier games like Earthbound used, than off SAGE itself. SAGE has gone through several incarnations/upgrades from Generals to Battle for Middle Earth through RA3: Uprising, so I agree that it doesn't make much sense to now keep certain things including us there since there's so many years and release builds between each, but that is just how the categories turned out. All W3d or SAGE projects are in the SAGE group.

We're not the advanced RA3 era SAGE but we're not stock Renegade era W3D either. It's something custom in between. I hope this answered your question!

They whistle as they come flying in now, too. Admiral-165, that probably was another 155mm shell like this in Fallout 3.

Yeah there are a lot of balance changes coming. The fact the M60s shoot so far as actually a mistake.

When you start the launcher, create a new name for yourself. The official server IP recently changed, so in the news browser at the top you can find instructions regarding how to change the old entry. Then, just select the server and hit join game; this will launch the combat sim and instantly connect to the server.

Eventually. We were working on the ants heavily a while back but got sidetracked with more pressing matters. There is still some animation work to be done.

If your video card supports it, you will certainly see them in-game on all vehicles and for the water (as of a couple versions ago). My video card does not support it, so do not expect to see any in screenshots I personally took.

For Luna directly, no. But possibly later in an alternate version or future moon setting. The problem is, it's hard to balance things out.

Crank up the 16x antialiasing and whatnot then =P The next version has widescreen support, if part of your $4k is the screen itself.

We'll give you the minelayers and the shotguns. It's up to you to lay the ambushes.

(real answer: Tanya's rate of fire has been subtly reduced in a way. And you can now lay 80 mines that are stronger, and detect infantry from farther)

I am not sure if you noticed, but this year both Released and Upcoming categories for Indie Games were combined into a single running. Some people are upset about that, but it's how things happened. Last year, Upcoming ones were barely recognized... so this is hardly unfortunate!

Congratulations, AR guys. You make us proud.
