Welcome to the mid-December Road To The Future!
We hope that you all are as excited as we are this month. There are definitely some neat things going on behind the scenes right now that we may get to reveal to you later on. For the moment, however, we have some great media to showcase.
The development team is still in need of all positions. If you have skills in these areas and are willing to dedicate your time to the mod, please click here to sign up.
Last month we told you that Eero started skinning the new paratrooper model. In fact, you may remember it as a teaser picture of the boots. Eero has finally given us permission to show off the entire model under the condition that we inform the public it is still a WIP.
Stefan has recently been working on a sweet new model that will be showcased in another one of his secret maps. He wouldn't let us show you the map, but we managed to get our hands on a picture of the rendered model.
Now for the RTTF Q and A's.
1. Are there any plans to make it possible to capture objectives no matter how many people are on a server?
The Beta has already implemented a system that makes the capture requirement variable. The team that has the most soldiers at an objective will be able to capture it.
2. Are there any plans to "nerf" the axis in some way?
Balancing teams is an important aspect to creating a successful game. Any overpowering strengths that either team might of had, except that of axis being in a defensive position, have been resolved.
3. Will there be a possibility for mappers to raise or lower the population caps for each team based on advantages/historical accuracy?
There is nothing setup to limit the number of people on a team. If you are intending on restricting a team in numbers, you can lower their initial ticket count.
4. How many maps total with be in the beta release?
An exact number cannot be set, but there will at least be as many the current number of official maps.
5. Will TrackIR be implemented into the game?
There are no plans to implement TrackIR.
If you have any questions that you would like featured in the next RTTF, PM the Public Relations department (Hunnicutt or Murphy). We will do our best to get your questions answered.
Due to the coming holidays, some of the developers will be going away for a while (Including the PR team). This means that we cannot promise you an update January 1st. The PR team will do our best to get the update out, but worst case scenario we will see you all again on the 15th of January for the monthly Road to the Future.
