Post news Report article RSS Feed BFVA 0.50 released!

Battlefield Vietnam Arsenal 0.50 it's out! 3 unfinished maps where left behind (Phu Cat River, Ten Clicks North and Coral Sea), so we could release the update a few days earlier. BFVA 0.50 is heavily focused on maps so you can expect new levels of all genders. Plant and Defuse (“CS Style”), big maps, close quarters, Vietnam War, First Indochina War and WW2 maps are available. All with support for bots.

version 0.50 (January 2009)

- Fixed Colt Commando muzzle flash (used the standard M16 'birdcage' effect, now a more appropriate one).
- Increased rifle grenade and grenade launcher velocity.
- Added an 'easter-egg'.
- Added new sounds for some silenced weapons.
- Balanced some kits adding grenades (Anti-Tank, Anti-Air and Flamethrower kits).
- Increased the damage of all bolt action rifles. It blows the realism, I know, but now these rifles will be useful.

- Added A-7 Corsair II with 18x Mk.82 bombs.

- Added the japanese Type 97 Chi-Ha tank for the Viet Minh. Model and code from BFV_WW2Mod mod, new texture by Odanan.
- Tweaked handling of MiG-17 and A-7 Corsair - MiG-17 has a slower roll rate but better turn, Corsair no longer flies like a UFO.
- Added the M8 Greyhound combat car for the french in the First Indochina War. Model, texture and code by Dice (from SWoWW2 expansion).

- AI-controlled tanks engage infantry with the machine gun rather than cannon.

- Stopped the American AI trying to destroy their own tent mobile spawnpoint.

- Updated ambient sounds on Defending the Port (rain and thunder).

Hi folks,

after the installation process there are two folders:

Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BFV_Arsenal
Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\bfv_arsenal_ww2

the second one, ww2, contains only five maps. Is this a bug or a feature? :)
