A long overdue update on the progress for Operation Remembrance V1.1, including a projected release date.

Posted by on

Hey, everyone! I'm sorry for the long time since my last update, but I've been busy with a lot of different things, both in modding and in real life. Since publishing the last article, I've implemented the vast majority of the changes I said I wanted to make for V1.1. The ammunition and vehicle repair systems have been overhauled as indicated in the previous article, the new armor/damage system is approximately 95% of the way finished, the kit system has been revised to remove handguns from most kits and add a number of useful tools, a large number of general gameplay tweaks have been implemented, and all of the existing maps have been updated to include some new objects and vehicles.

At this point, all that's left is some rather extensive debugging and fine-tuning, and overhaul the additional thirty maps that are going to come with V1.1. Three of these maps are already finished: Hue Slums, Operation Quick Justice, and The Cost of Living. Two more maps, which are up for renaming, are almost finished, while the remaining twenty-five still need significant changes. Not considering possible future name changes, these twenty-five maps are:

A Shau Camp

Battle of Dong Ha

Battle of Da Nang

Defense of Ngoc Loan Outpost

Firebase Whiskey

Hamburger Hill

Kon Tum Crossing

Ky Hoang Thunder

Mekong River

Night Patrol

Operation Bolo

Operation Hickory II

Operation Linebacker

Operation Rolling Thunder

Operation Shellshock

Operation Snow

Operation Starlite

Operation Steel Tiger

Red River Raid

River of Blood

Saigon Coup

Special Forces Encampment

Tet Offensive

Valley Assault

Village Patrol

For anyone who hasn't seen it, I released a video on my YouTube channel covering some of the new features. You can watch it here: Youtube.com

Unfortunately, the estimate I gave in that video for a release date sometime later this month or in October has turned out to be overly optimistic. Some things have come up in my life that need to be taken care of, so it looks like I'll be taking a break from development for about a month. I'm hoping to come back sometime in mid-October or a little later, so at this point, I'm aiming for Christmas as a release date again. Until then, here are some pictures from Operation Remembrance in its current state.
