Global Storm version 0.5 is after long time waiting ready to play.
Global Storm is modification for Battlefield 2 v1.5.
Main goal of GS mod is to improve gameplay with semi-realistic style
GSmod has also a goal of making "BattleField 2 v2.0" that means improving game only with good stuff and to stay with original BF2 concept and of course to have the same system requirements as BF2 v1.5.
If you are looking for a mod that will drastically change gameplay, moving it away from original BF2 concept then this mod won't be attractive to you as other mods would.
Since so far I'm only one who is developing this mod, the progress will be quite slow. But never the less GS mod for now has a higher weapons damage, faster rockets, RPG-7v, 3D ironsights, new sprinting animations, Apache and Hind helicopters plus BMP3 from Special Forces exp, new weapons, unique tweaks and more. There's also a bigger Single Player map sizes thanks to the work of "Ti_GER arn354".
In agreement with "Void/ESAI", Global Storm mod is now getting better AI, from "Enhanced Strategic AI" mod
Special thanks to "dodek96_pl" because without of his nerves of steel and his tutorials this mod would be dead from day one.
NOW AS FOR NEW PRONE ANIMATIONS, THOSE WON'T BE IN THE NEXT V0.5. I JUST DON'T HAVE TIME TO DO EVERYTHING ALONE, SO V0.5 WILL NOT HAVE PRONE ANIMATIONS.
I can't believe that it has past a one year since first version 0.1 of Global Storm mod was released. Version 0.1 was released on 01.05.2012.
When I think that version 0.1 only had a changed values of weapons damage, rockets speed and few added items from Special Forces expansion. I'm proud to say that Global Storm has definitely evolved into more fun and exciting mod.
The changelog of this version is huge, but in short:
- Now it's better optimized mod
- New improved AI. (by Void from his mod ESAI v5.0)
- New weapons
- New 1P animations for all weapons;
- New firing sound effects;
- New textures;
and much more ! Full changlog is included in download.
MEC vehicles got new woodland and desert textures.
EU infantry got also new textures:
New minimap shape:
New weapons and a few examples.
In "Tutorial" video on main page you'll find instruction of adding weapons to infantry class.
This presentation is only a small part of features in v0.5
I Hope you like Global Storm v0.5, because I love it !
