This week’s news post the team is celebrating our 50th News Post and our 2nd Anniversary as a mod team. "Geledonutt" started working with a few of the developers in November of 2003 and today we are a well organized development team. We appreciate that we have a great community of gamers that contribute to the success of the mod by always suggesting ideas and critiquing our work.

It’s fun being able to look back at where we began and then look at where we are going! We’ve worked very hard to recruit some of the best talent in our industry and our development staff consists of 29 members currently. We added two new developers to the team this week and we would like to welcome "Digital Assassin" & "Blanku" to our team. "Digital Assassin" has returned to our staff and he’ll be assisting the team as environmental modeler/skinner creating static’s for our maps and "Blanku" has joined the team as a music composer. We are planning in the near future to have our teaser movies include original POE music which "Blanku" will be creating for us.

Our first render for the week is the 9 x 19mm PP-2000 personal defensive weapon developed by Instrument Design Bureau of Russia. If you decide to play on Ukraine’s side you will have a chance to shoot your opponents with this. "AgentX" created both the model & skin.

The KORD 12.7mm heavy machine gun has returned, but it has been redone for PoE:2. "D_Fast" reviewed our PoE:1 model and it wasn’t up to our new standards so he decided to create a new model and Spitfire developed the skin for it. Expect this to be mounted on vehicles and possibly in sand bagged positions.

For everyone that has played Battlefield:2, have you ever thought that ground defense against aircraft was a little bit weak? With the breakup of USSR a lot of SA-5 surface-to-air missile batteries were left in Ukraine and we have decided to add them to our maps. You’ll get a chance to see the full missile battery setup in our map screenshots in the near future. All the credit for the jet killer goes to "Nello".

SA-5 Surface-to-Air Missile

The P-35 BAR LOCK radar, is an air defense radar system designed to work in conjunction with various surface to air missile systems. In PoE:2 the P-35 will be along side the Sa-5 shown above, the P-35 both model & skin by "Nello".

Our weekly in game screenshots are of the Su-24 Fencer developed by “Geledonutt”. This aircraft will be armed to take care of any threat have it be in the air or on ground. The Su-24 Fencer has the swept wing design and you’ll notice that in the following screenshots:

Some weeks back members in our German community pointed out the fact that an Ef2000 and/or Tornado would never take off from a dirt runway. We felt that the existing runways conveyed a much too developed runway system given the offensive nature of German troops on these maps. With that in mind we came up with a temporary runway which would have been laid by combat engineers to give the planes an airfield that was viable to take off from yet not a well developed airfield. (Two images are located in our gallery)

We wanted to do something special for our 50th news post / 2nd anniversary and what the team decided to do was create a video for your enjoyment. The one we provided last week was just a simple test for “Illicitfilms” to try new things and this week he has worked very hard to provide the following teaser for your enjoyment.


Lastly today we have a desktop wallpaper created by "Devil" for your daily viewing pleasure, comes in a variety of sizes to accommodate different resolutions.


So that’s it for this week’s news. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did creating it for you. Things are getting closer and closer to our .1 beta so stay tuned to our weekly news posts and our forums.

It’s time for us to get back to work……

While I still don't have Battlefield 2, I still think that any selection of screen shots that comes out for this mod look fantastic. This mod will be awesome, though I may never get to play it! :(
