Pegasus v1.4 Release
We've been hard at work on the NVA faction and as we balance and optimize things, the USA faction gets it's share of fixes, additions and balance tweaks. Rather than sit on all these wonderful changes, we felt there was enough content added to the USA to warrant a version update.
Below you can see some of the new features we've added, a new unit, new maps, a new music track, and tons of bug fixes and balance adjustments.
Download Full Pegasus v1.4
- Be sure to UNISTALL any previous version of the mod BEFORE installing Pegasus v1.4

PEGASUS 1.4 PATCH NOTES
New monetary system - villages provide some funds even when unoccupied (but provide far more when occupied!) and each player gets a constant stream of free funds.
New Optimized fast loading shell map
Fire propagation - when trees catch fire, the fire can spread to other trees
Agent Blue causes trees to become "poisoned", considerably damaging infantry until trees regrow
New Font for main menu
Broken Arrow Overhaul - rather than one large strike, you get smaller more frequent strikes. OV-10 Bronco is sent in orbit the area and you can select where the air strikes hit, much like how targeting works for the AC-130 Gunships.
New special effects for napalm
Visual improvements to the jungle trees
New Unit - Monitor:
A floating weapons platform, can switch between weapons:
-- 105mm cannon turret
