Hey, everyone! It's been a while since the last status report. But now I'm ready to share some new information about upcoming 2.2 update.
New Feature - hand/foot skins
Thanks to Eugeny, we have new hand/foot skins in the RealRTCW 2.2. What does it mean? Well, BJ's hands and foot appearance now depends on the map. For example on the Norway chapter you will have snow camouflage, while on the Dam chapter you will have dark camouflage for the night mission. This feauture is also implemented in the Trondheim trilogy.
New weapon textures
Also, I was able to get in touch with the professional texture artist. He is not from the mod community. Since he have a big experience in drawing textures on Unreal Engine 4 and Unity Engine, I asked him to improve some of the RealRTCW weapon textures. He is almost finished. And I want to show you some of his work:
More in-game screenshots will be uploaded later.
What's the good news?
The good news is that RealRTCW 2.2 is going to be released in December. I'm not sure when exactly. It can be upcoming week, it can be end of December. Right now I'm testing the new version, trying to improve balance. With the new difficulty system you need to balance 4 .ai files not just one, so it's taking some time.
What's the bad news?
Unfortunately some of the promised content not gonna appear in RealRTCW 2.2. I'm talking about Scoped M1 Garand and P38. Why? Remember this weird bug with the dynamite icon in RealRTCW 2.1 (still persisting in 2.2)? Well, the thing is, RTCW have some weird weapon limits. So this bug appeared because I added too many weapons. When I added Scoped Garand and Revolver this bug "evolved" - Luger became two handed weapon for some reason, colt icon disappeared. So I decided to remove Scoped M1 Garand and keep the Revolver by removing Walther P38. Not sure if I'm gonna be able to resolve this issue.
Also the new difficulty system was successfully implemented in custom addons. RealRTCW 2.2 will be released along with the Trondheim Trilogy, Project51 and Pharaoh's Curse. Stalingrad, Time Gate, Capuzzo and Hidden Wolf will be updated.
