Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
We are showing off a render today, but before we get to that we have the link to the files needed by server administrators to get their servers set up and running in time for the release of 2.53. You can find these files here. You do not need to download these files unless you administer a server. The files required to play 2.53 will be available through the Launcher.
The original design of the Suomi KP/-31 had not included a muzzle brake, and the addition of the lengthy device in 1940 was opposed by Aimo Lahti, who had originally designed the weapon. It was of questionable effectiveness, and since roughly half of the weapons in Finnish service did not have the new muzzle brake, we have got Stubbfan to remove it from Seth Soldier's original model.
The Nebelhandgranate 39B is a smoke grenade based on the German Model 24 stick grenade. The explosive filling is replaced by a mix of chemicals that when ignited would produce a dense white smoke that was emitted through holes cut in the base of the grenade's body. The white lines were added to the body and stick to aid identification, and Seth Soldier has also included the grooves that were added later to aid identification in the dark.
To go along with this render, we also have a handful of screenshots showing some of the new content coming in 2.53.
Finally, Ts4EVER has posted a blog update giving a nice overview of the four new maps. Go read it here.
That's all for today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
