Vietnam | Glory Obscured IRC
In an effort to make communicating with the Developers of VGO easier, we have integrated a web based IRC. This will allow anyone easy and instant access to be able to have a live discussion with the Devs!
You can share your ideas about the mod, get your questions answered, talk about tactics and game play, or even challenge a Dev to a head to head battle of VGO!
Also talk with Beta Testers and other fans of VGO. It really is as easy as clicking here.
Pegasus Patch v1.1 Update News
We know it's been a few months since release and we wanted to let everyone know what we've been up to. We have been diligently working on patch v1.1 that addresses a number of things. Aside from the bug fixes, we have listened to all the feedback coming and have made some changes. One of the things we addressed were adding ranking for infantry and we've worked in some special abilities that unlock for those infantry that rank up.
So aside from some new maps and visual eye candy that will be in the new patch, the biggest issue we addressed was the accessibility of the mod to new players that are not use to the style of game play we have created. We will be releasing a tutorial map along with the patch that will take the players through all the new features in the mod and show players how to use them. For those of you who don't like reading the manual, this tutorial is for you!
A full list of changes, additions, and bug fixes will be posted when patch is released.
Look for Pegasus v1.1 Patch coming soon!
ScreamingCricket Visits the Vietnam Veterans Memorial
"Before working on the VGO mod, I had little interest in the Vietnam War era, but I wanted to work on something no one else was doing. As with all my projects, I began to research the war more and more, and started reading books written by soldiers that fought in the war. It was a different type of war that had never been fought before, and I wanted to portray that the best I could in the mod.
Over the last 3 years of working on VGO, the Vietnam War has captured my interest and I felt it time that I visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a place I had never been before. Since I live in the Washington D.C. area, I don't really know why I hadn't gone sooner. While I was there, I stopped for a picture with the bronze statue of The Three Soldiers. They are positioned looking at the Wall of names of the soldiers who died in Vietnam.
The walk along the wall was solemn and actually quite haunting. As you walked down into the earth, the Wall began to tower over you and it was quite overwhelming to see all the names as each panel as the stone slabs got larger. Anyone who has visited the Wall before will know what I mean. There were old veterans crying over lost friends and pictures left by the wall of the soldiers who died. With all the crowds of people there, no one talked, all that was heard were birds. It is definitely an experience I wont soon forget."
