Today I received an interview from the Over the Top team. We had multiple interviewees with loads to say. Here is a short sample of what you will find in the full interview. You can also find images in the screen shot area.

Timmay: What kind of vehicles will you be using?

aliencowboy: For now, our inclusion of vehicles is fairly limited in respect to many other mods for a simple reason: Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. For now we have planned to include supply trucks and ambulances. The Lieutenant who acts as the commanding officer in the field has the responsibility of ‘ordering’ what is necessary for the battle based on the conditions of the battle, be it artillery rounds, chlorine gas, mustard gas, ammunition, medical supplies, you name it. Those vehicles will be used to transport these items.

The Casualty: We don't plan on having drivable vehicles in our mod, this is because it generally distracts other players from completing objectives, instead fighting over "who gets to shoot the guns" or driving around doing nothing except blowing random stuff up with no purpose. However, on some maps there *might* be computer controlled vehicles such as reconnaisance aircraft, which will update a Lieutenant's map if he returns to base in one piece, or a few tanks which will roll forward and assist your infantry charges. However, the only vehicle we have confirmed right now is the supply truck, which will, obviously, be a big part of our unique resupply system.
