[Models changed]
 - Changed weapon model: M4A1

[New weapons]

 - Added battle rifles for Assault soldier. Adjusted the specs of battle rifles.
 - Reduced the duration until pulling out sidearms greatly.

[General]
 - Removed recoils from SPG (self-propelled gun) and MLRS.
 - Removed recoils from a machine gun mounted on vehicles.
 - Removed TV screen effect from TV camera missile. Player can select day/thermal just like other vehicles.

[Tank/MBT]
 - Added damage reducing to tanks.
(The amount of the damage depends on the angle that the AT projectile hits the surface of the tank. 50% of the damage in maximum would be reduced)

[Aerial vehicles]
 - Adjusted specs of countermeasures. Flares falls slower, but it stays shorter amount of time.
 - Any AA missiles would no longer chase the target after they fly past the flares.
 - Added turret icon on the gunner's seat of attack helicopters. Player will know which direction he/she is looking at, regarding the direction of the helicopter.

 - Decreased splash damage of MK19 on MH-53E.
 - Increased ammo count of MK19 on MH-53E.

 - Increased the flying speed of JASSM.
 - Changed lock-on distance and duration of GBU-27
(so that player can lock on the target from slightly farther distance)

 - Removed gunner's seats from SPGs and MLRS, so the driver is also the gunner.
 - Set the maximum ammo count on SPGs and MLRS.
 - SPGs and MLRS can now rearm from ammo pack.

(so that player selecting AT kit will see both SMG and AT weapon on the respawn menu).

 - Changed some of the explosion sound.
 - Changed some of the explosion sound heard from distance.
 - Added new firing sound for some handheld weapons (M4, M16, XM8, MP5, MP7, Tavor, and AK47).
 - Added new firing sound for any handheld weapons heard when firing inside buildings.
 - Adjusted the timing of firing sound for some weapons and vehicles
(so that the sound and the animation would sync).

RENDERING


 - Changed shaders
   The effect when receiving explosion blast is increased, so that player's view would be more blurred, and the corners of the screen would be dark for a short while. Also, the visual of thermal vision screen is adjusted so the distortion of the screen is reduced.

 - Extended view distance of objects
   The visual distance of infantry, vehicles and some other objects that are essential to gameplay is extended so player can see distant objects better than before.


Finally, we introduce some of the people (=developers) who contributed to the release of v0.4.

 - SuzukiWYS
   Worked on: new M4A1 model, new G3SG/1 skin

 - Bobthedinosaur

Nice to hear from this mod again! But: You wrote we should play this on servers with unlocks available. Seriously? AIX is a Singleplayer/Coop mod. There has to be a way to unlock more kits for singleplayer/coop! It's a shame to have so many weapons but you can't use them all because the alternative kits are missing.

Apparently, the Minimod is focused more on multiplayer than Singleplayer/Coop. Thats what I read on the description on the front page.

Unfortunately, nobody plays this online! Would probably be cool as a LAN-game, but when you look in the server list, you're lucky if even one server hosting AIX (+minimod) pops up. Not even talking of people playing on it.
So Singleplayer is still the most important thing on such a modification IMO. Would love to see improved bot AI and such things.

They did do something to the AI, "Enhanced Strategic AI (Powered by Void)". All maps have bot support. Running this mod through the BF2SPCC program that came with the original AIX2 allows for promotions, but, I'm not sure about unlocks, though.

your wrong about online servers....
Still the AIX2ex_MM homesite runs this in CoOp.
and on my site it runs 24/7 also in CoOp (use "gametracker" to find it)
or try this IP: 188.40.34.103:19573.
The BF2 ingame browser does not ever works correctly.
