The cake is a lie.
APB and AR have two seperate teams. There is overlap and people work on both projects but they are somewhat seperate in the content creation stage (models and textures etc)
I'm more looking foward to A Path beyond version Pi or Omega :D
THe download mirror is up here at moddb now as well as a newspost. THey took a little bit of time to upload and get approved :)
There have been quite a few but it's still something to do in the future. We have an idea of what to do next but seemign we've just released gamma we'll be fixing that first. Same with the Iron curtain I guess.
If you are 'watching' or 'following' this mod you'll see the news posted here once it isreleased.
Otherwise, keep an eye out over at www.apathbeyond.com and the forums Apathbeyond.com
I'm actually a Melbournian too and am studying games design at VU. Sadly I didn't get a ticket to the freeplay talks (sold out) and I didn't know experimedia was free or else I would have come and had a chat.
I was suprised to see the mod up on their website listed as a demo, good job.
RA: A Path Beyond
Bring it on!
It is already free to play. It's a standalone mod using the C&C renegade engine. That means you don't need C&C Renegade to play it, because it's self contained. (Yes we have permission)
This makes me quite sad.
This is correct, with some minor modifications which the westwood renders had.
The earth is still WIP :p Well the whole night sky is, seeming the engine defaults it to an earth sky, it still has an atmosphere.
And the earth still has the halo around it, which would not be present.
I think we were going to go with an actual 3d model of the earth and not a 2d plane or at least get some updated nasa images :p
Thanks for the support. Don't forget to check out the blogs and other news posts on the website/forums :)
It has been modeled and was being used as a prop in a map. But the (then) leader of the mod, halo38 left. Dunnoif it'll make a return, probably will but not for a long time.
Do you remember which issue, if you can remember? or if you mean a previous issue thats mentioned on our website.
Even if you've found it, it's on the main website in the menu under IRC. :P
It's hosted on the n00bstories.com network, channel #apathbeyond
Magic. And if you don't belive in magic, merlin will kill you. :(
This game has some pretty crazy things so no breathing apparatus for infantry isn't too bad :p
Just a bit of fun to mix things up and introduce a new game mode.
Yes, Turkey was an an allied nation, not directly (that we know of) but supported them. This map takes place near turkey (would be todays georgia) on the border of the USSR. which would explain why there are bases there, why they are fighting (border control+oil and supplies) etc. :p
Why don't you keep the insults to yourself.
Can't wait Although I hope there is still a written component, not just the videos.
looks pretty poor if a mod has to say it's still alive.
Also, leave the posting upto the news guy, or the leader.
w00tles. Been following this since you posted the topic months ago over at SA. I shall watch it here too.
You can read about the histroy of the project right over here: Apathbeyond.com
It's a bit of a read but you can skim over bits.
Not for awhile. Testers are getting a new internal test build this week sometime, but we've still got lots to do.
The pipeline is a map prop which infantry can climb on using ladders (yet to be added) which will lead to small maintenance shacks which sit on top of the pipeline, giving a little cover for infantry.
Red alert 1 plus it's two expansions.
Reading that big block of text at the top of the page will explain a bit, more info can be read up over here:
/me waves goodbye to his last newspost.
Yeah, if you don't know yet i've stepped down as the PR guy for reborn. So expect updates form dark or someone new from now on (ps, I made this one, darks just trying to steal my cred :v )
People wanted a bit of change in the scenery, we either have green grass or snow and ice :p
We figured a deserty type map would be fun to make and fit in well with the story. Seeming things were mentioned around the eastern Mediterranean (Greece, Turkey) we thought the oilfields near the black sea would have been the eastern front in RA1 great war.
War did take place in the middle eastern areas in both our WWI and WWII so it does work. Soviet expansion into allied controlled oil fields etc. Just a bit of fun :p
Yes, it should be good for tank combat but there will be a lot of cover for infantry with some safe routes.
Once bought helicopters fly in from off map and land next to the helipad where you can get in. It takes about 10 seconds for it to land after being purchased.
If you cany buy one you either don't have enough credits, the helipad has been destroyed or the helicopter limit for your team has been reached.
Sorry about the lateness, friended. (well, like 2 months ago, but i forgot to say something :p )
Once we have an initial release we'll see if a torrent is needed to lighten the load on server mirrors.
Thanks for the tip though.
