Close Assault: Close Assault v0.4 Update

Added by TheCaptain over 6 years ago

The Close Assault project is now public and available for browsing. I've been spending what free time I have on coding, so I haven't uploaded files, documents, put together the wiki, or assembled the FAQ yet. The repository will be available (and linked into the changelogs) sometime next week.

The last major portions I have to code before v0.4 can be properly tested are the spectating interface, the debriefing screen, and the in game briefing and 'how to play' descriptions. Before a public release, I plan to improve the teamswitch code (especially within vehicles), the sector capturing code (right now captures are instant), and write a scoreboard replacement so those playing can have quick updates about the other players and map status (time left, players, sector status, etc). There are also a few odds and ends to be worked out, but most major systems are in place. I'm waiting on some new computer hardware to design the 'real' maps as all my testing has been done on ramahdi, the only island my poor macbook can load. As I've stated in a few places, I've been working on exams, but I'll probably be able to finish most of the remaining items before the end of the month, and get both private and public test versions out.

(As a bit of a bonus, last night I coded a scripted manual mortar system which will make its way into the first release (hopefully). Executing a proper assault or defense requires some indirect fire or suppression, and as I've been putting off the off-map support options, I wanted to see how players would do with indirect firepower at their fingertips, without the simplicity of a map-click-boom system. Using an invisible Mk19 or Ags-30 duct taped to the back of an M113 or BMP HQ, the player can maneuver the mortar into place and manually aim the launcher using the mouse to select the correct elevation and bearing to hit a grid square (appx. target location is updated in real time, as well as needed bearing and distance to hit a map-selected point). The shell is fired from the launcher at the correct trajectory, making for realistic flight path and flight time. The mortar is effective between 100m and 3000m, and is accurate to within about 10m with a blast radius of ~20m (D30 or M119 shells), flight time of 30-45 seconds, and credits kills and rating to the gunner. Almost unfair, in practice.)

Warface (formerly WACO): Warface v1.1.7d released

Added by Doomguy over 6 years ago

The first official release of Warface! ;-)

ACE 1.07 stuff added: Bizons, Konkurs launcher, and sandbags. Fixes and AI tweaks. Ranks can now be earned.

Here is the full changelog:

  • Added ACE 1.07 content: EAST: Bizon (SD), crew-served Konkurs
    launcher. BOTH: sandbags.
  • More squad leader fixes: Squad leader of independent air team
    is not respawned as team members anymore. Also, AI squad leaders
    could somehow join other teams: resolved by having them re-join
    their own team upon respawn.
  • Updated briefing and in-game help menu to better reflect Warface features.
  • Gear menu: Team member number displayed accurately now.
  • Fix for map coords on dedicated server: sent to client first
    before conversion.
  • AI teams of heavy type will attack enemy base more
    offensively if the income level of the AI side is above a certain
    threshold (200). Also, AI teams will divide their attention between
    fewer towns to capture.
  • Delays added between unit creations to prevent hickups when
    approaching a town.
  • Ranks can now be earned. Players start as sergeant, and
    receive promotions based on their score. Score is increased by
    neutralizing the enemy, and capturing camps and towns. For now, the
    ranks are merely "for fun," but they may become a requirement for
    the player to use certain weapons, or team size.
  • M107 and OSV-96 made more expensive: $300 for rifle and $30 for magazine.
  • Added new Warface logo to mission briefing and GUI.
