Project Reality v0.96 Progress

Since the successful release of Project Reality v0.95, we have been developing the next installment of Project Reality: BF2, the v0.96 patch. This patch will focus heavily on the optimization of the entire PR:BF2 modification and will also contain multiple bug fixes. Of course not all of our work has just been code related; we have also been developing brand new in game assets for you to have at our disposable while playing PR. Here is a preview of just a few of them:

Militia: BMP-1 Infantry Fighting Vehicle

The BMP-1 is a Soviet amphibious tracked Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV). The BMP-1 was the world's first mass-produced IFV and it was a revolutionary design, combining the properties of an armored personnel carrier (APC) and a light tank. The Soviet military saw any future wars as being conducted with nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, where unprotected infantry would soon be either killed or incapacitated by radiation or chemical and biological agents. A vehicle like the BMP would allow infantry to operate from the relative safety of its armored, radiation shielded interior in contaminated areas and to fight alongside it in uncontaminated areas. It would increase infantry squad mobility, provide fire support to them, and also be able to fight alongside main battle tanks. The design is so good that many nations across the world still use this vehicle even though its well over 40 years old.


Russian Forces: BMP-2 Infantry Fighting Vehicle

The BMP-2 is a second-generation, amphibious infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) introduced in the 1980s in the Soviet Union, following the success of the BMP-1 of the 1960s. Although the BMP-1 was a revolutionary design, its main armament, the 2A28 Grom and the 9S428 ATGM launcher, quickly became obsolete. Therefore the Soviet Union decided to produce an updated and improved version of the BMP-1. The most significant changes are a new two-man turret armed with the 2A42 30mm auto cannon and the 9P135M ATGM. The commander now sits with the gunner in an enlarged turret and its occupants are protected by slightly improved armor.

PLA: Zhi-9 Light Transport Helicopter

The People's Liberation Army's (PLA) Zhi-9 (Z-9) is a Chinese, licensed-built version of the Eurocopter AS 365N Dauphin II. The Z-9 is possibly the most produced helicopter in China, with over 200 machines delivered to both military and civilian customers. The Z-9 fulfills the role of light transport and utility helicopter in the PLA. In PR:BF2, the Z-9 will be able to fly a full squad of troops quickly into battle and deploy them in small landing zones where larger transport helicopters would have not been able to.


PLA: Zhi-9WA Light Attack Helicopter

The PLA Zhi-9WA (Z-9WA, aka WZ-9A) is a light attack helicopter based on the Zhi-9, light transport/utility helicopter featuring a pair of external weapon pylon, a under nose mounted observing and tracking unit housing a low-light camera and an infrared search and track (IRST) camera, allowing it to operating in all weathers, both day and night. In PR:BF2 there will be multiple versions of the Z-9WA, each carrying a different load out of weapons. These different load outs will be used on maps and layers that suit them best, with the option of mixing the different load outs among multiple helicopters.


We hope you have enjoyed this Project Reality progress update. We will be showcasing some more exciting assets in the next few days, so be sure to a keep close eye on the Project Reality forums for updates. Also, don't forget to go vote for Project Reality: Battlefield 2 in the MOTY 2010 competition.

Only one with effort put into it? WTF?

You're obviously retarded. Forgotten Hope 2, AIX, OPK, PoE2? They put shitloads of effort into their mods, and the results were good. PR has the most content because it has the biggest team.

Ye like the other two comments above me, there are plenty of other decent BF2 mods out there, in fact one of my votes in this years MOTY when to FH2 (a BF2 mod) since I thought they did an awesome job on there new release. The problem is BF2 is not a mod friendly game and you need something with totally different gameplay etc to really take players away from the "ranks" etc.

Epic mod. So epic.

MW and MW2 may be fun, but they CANNOT beat a nap-of-earth insertion of infantry in Muttrah City, flying through the streets in a helicopter. That's fun for the pilot and the passengers :)

Also, someone should probably update what it says in the summary...the last release was 0.95, not 0.91...
