Delays, breaks and absence

Very firstly, I wanted to appologize to have left you in doubt all this time. So why I have been absent all this time? There is 2 reasons :

- The main reason is something most of you know : my files. Indeed, after a trip that forced me to leave my desktop computer at home, my files got stuck on a laptop where I had put them while waiting for a new one : The internal hard drive of the computer was too damaged, and it was impossible to recover them. As a result, I lost nearly 40% of my files, mainly from Post-Soviet Conflicts, including all my works on Ukrainians, 2008 Georgians and a lot more.

- The second reason is university. Since I got to university, and that making the same work would take me too much time, I decided to pause the mod, and focus on my studies, at least until I start to get used at this life.

What's now?

Now, I'm getting back to work on the mod, and even if I lost a lot of my files, I was still doing some works from time to time. However, I have noticed something : Due to the large accumulation of factions (which represent a hundred of them), the mod beacame a litlle unstable with crashes and lags for no reason. Also I have noticed that it could have taken too much time.

So I have decideed to separate the different conflicts and put them into groups, and those groups will be released one by one and will be independants from one of the others. How it work ? If you remind the articles I put a long time ago which showed you the conflicts one by one? Those will be the groups. For example, Asia group will be released at a date, Africa will follow and so on. But the two first groups to be released will be Iraq (what has been up since the first version), and Post-Soviet conflict. So I was able to organize the development, so as to obtain the following quick-made board, and following some calculations, potential release dates :

Mod update

Ok, I will avoid boring you for a long time. For the occasion, I decided to show you some things new that been have done on the mod, and which was not lost.

Iraq trilogy

This is the basis of the mod, since it is the one we are working on since the first version of the mod. I call it a trilogy because it's containing three eras : Iran-Iraq War (1980s) Persian Gulf War (1991), and Iraq war (2003-2008).

  • So, firstly, in Iraq war, I have been expanding the Polish Faction, adding three more soldiers variations, in fact, it's the woodland version of their wz93 Pantera camo, which also seen use in Iraq. it was made a long time ago by our talentend texture artists MatthewsBF for Urban Conflit.

Similarly, the Polish are welcoming vehicles for the first time in the mod. So I added a Humvee to them, and a brdm2.

Flag of Kurdistan Peshmerga


The Peshmerga have also been changed, not that it forcefully better, but because at the time of 2003, Peshmerga wasn't so millitarized that it was in the mod. The one you see in the first versions of the mod is like a more modern one. But this more modern Peshmerga will be integrated in "Arab Winter group" in a enhanced way. This one is mainly PUK (Patriotic Union of Kurdistan).

  • Second, the Iraqis in the Persian Gulf War have have been reworked, with the aim of deferring them from the 2003 version.

Therefore, in addition to receiving new skins, Iraqi army is now reinforced by its military police in Kuwait

Always in Gulf War perspective, the SAS is welcoming another soldier variation (sorry for the bad picture btw) :

  • Third, in previous versions, the Iranians lacked vehicles compared to the Iraqis. Thanks to several contributors, I was able to obtain vehicles used by the Iranians during the war. Unfortunately, Persian voices have not yet been possible, likewise, an overhaul of Iranian soldiers is expected sooner or later. I want to thank Zachary Sex, from AK-interactive, for informations about vehicles used by Iran during the war.

First, is the addition of the chieftain tank, provided by Fast&FPS, skin by me. At this time , Iran was the first forreign user of the Chieftain tank, using it in large number.

There is also the addition, of the Ferret Armoured car, provided by A_Teletuby , skin by me.

Now, we welcome a Willy Jeep, famous for his use in the WW2 and Korean War. Its was also used by Iran, due to the vehicle be delivered to the Iranian Pahlavi Dynasty before the revolution. Thanks to Anthony 817 and BfKorea team for letting me use it

BF2 v1 5 3153 802 0 pid 5500 1

And to finish, we got the M109 Hotwizer, provided by Yak43 , skin by me

BF2 v1 5 3153 802 0 pid 16140

Post Soviet Conflicts

Now, let's talk about the Post-Soviet conflicts. Since the last article talking about it, I have been adding the requested conflicts as well as some enhancements, but as I said, most of my work on thi group has been lost. Here is what I still got from what i don't have showed yet :

900px Flag of Russia svg Russia


Behind United States, Russia will be the second most worked faction in Codename Flashpoint. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, both internal and external conflicts erupted betweens many of its members, and Russia participated in some of them.

Since we added the Tajik civil war, I have decided to put Russia on it, I have then made those skins, inspired by the 201st Motor Rifle Division, who was stattioned in Tajikistan at this time, and even now.

I also added them in Dagestan,inspired by Naval Infantry, as you can see the specops...

They also got a specific skin for the First Chechen war, inspired by the army.

BF2 v1 5 3153 802 0 pid 1588 2

I also started to work on the Georgian civil war, and worked on both Georgian Army (actual government) , and Abkhazians separatists.

To finish, I briefly started the Nagorno-Krabakh War, which is opposing Armenia and NKR (in one faction) from a side, to Azerbaijan. I have made at least one infantryman from both sides, but they're still in wip.

So, I think that's all I wanted to show. I said a long time ago that I was preparing a new HUD, it still have to be done. But for now, I am foccusing on finishing the main work, and hopefully, the release dates will be respected. Thank you for following me, and sorry for having written so much xD. If you have any question, feel free to ask me.

Sincerely,

This is looking good! I do think the modular release style is a good idea, it'll not only keep the game from bugging out, but allow people to customize the mod and keep the size down if they only want some of the conflicts contained within.

Sorry to hear about the data loss, but it looks like things are stepping up again, I'm loving the new content!

Thank you! I thought a long time before making this decision but it was necessary. You are absolutely right, especially since the mod size was starting to become very heavy.

Good thing, to sepertate the stories. Not many want to download a 16GB mods. :)
Better to have 'modules' and easier to focus for modders one by one.
Good luck !

Hint: Always make backupuouuz hahaha

I spent time waiting for this mode, but I'm sorry that something unsavory happened. It would be nice to buy an external hard drive or back up your files to a system like Web Clyde. I can't wait for Nagorno-Karabakhwar, Donvaswar, Russo-Georgian War Soviet Conflicts mode to be released.
