Here we are again with some new highlights of our progress. The month has been busy and successful again, so we have got plenty of stuff to show. One big achievement is the successful implementation of custom infantry models. So, finally we are able to import our US-Soldier, including all the necessary equipment. You may not know how much effort Darkbladecr has put into this (animation, rigging, etc.), but let me tell you that this is nothing less than another milestone in our development! At this point we also want to thank Michael Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) for providing us with the US Soldier model. Some of the infantry skins are still to be done, but we don't want to leave you without at least a first impression of it. Just take a look at the crew of the M106A3 Mortar Tank. Except the bare head, the whole model is new, with proper body armor, helmet, communication, etc. This enables us to create infantry as we need it, completely without model mixing, which harms performance.
Now you say, "M106A3 Mortar Tank? Did i see that ingame already?". No you didn't, it's one more vehicle that has been properly imported and animated in the meanwhile. The same counts for the Type 59d Main Battle Tank, the Type 89 Tank Destroyer and the ZBD2000. They are all completely functional ingame by now. Here are some more pictures of them in action.
If you don't know where you can find these units in the faction layout yet, or you want more information about the mod, we suggest you to have a look at our homepage. Also make sure to drop a comment on our forums. See you on moderncombat.blacksandstudio.com.
