AIX 2: WIP contents for upcoming version

Postby buschhans » Tue Oct 23, 2012 11:01 pm

Image

Today, we introduce some of the contents that would be available in the next version of AIX2 Expansion MiniMOD.
These features are not such a big change as in-game contents, but they might bring a new perspective of gameplay of this MiniMOD.

"HMMWV MLRS"
Image Image Image

From times ago, we've been considering to add a new kind of weapons/vehicles.
However, we decided to modify some of the vehicles that exist already since we didn't have developers who are capable with creating new 3D skins.
This vehicle "HMMWV MLRS" is kind of a mobile rocket launcher.
Besides USMC, which has Humvee as their own weapon, we're also creating counterparts that would belong to CHPLA (China) or MEC.
These kinds of vehicles don't exist in reality; however, if we hopefully get 3D models for these vehicles, we would add these as a replacement.

"Night Vision Device"

We also are working with adding a night vision device (NVD) that is known in the official expansion pack of BF2:Special Forces.
Upon adding NVD, firstly we have to solve copyright stuff between us, Dev team of AIX2EMM, and EA/DiCE.
AND we suppose that it would be avoidable if preparing our own texture for the NVD.
Fortunately, the NVD shader is already contained in BF2 game and it should all okay to use them as a part of our in-game content.
Of course we noticed that the shader itself needs bugfix, therefore it's quite possible that we give up having NVD in-game if the defect turns out to be unchangeable.

Note that these in-game contents may not be added if they are considered to be unnecessary upon examining the contents in the beta testing.

See you then!
AIX2 Expansion MiniMOD Dev team.

Good and Bad News, and Developer Wanted

Postby buschhans » Tue Oct 23, 2012 11:02 pm

Hi there, it's getting chilly over here in Japan, and the translator's residence, NY, too.
Here are some good news and bad news coming in today.

*Introduction of the anti-tank rocket launcher

Fortunately enough, we are happy to welcome the new 3D creator into our team.
He's already got his hands on the new job that would be available in upcoming version.

Image

Here is a new AT rocket launcher called "SMAW"
We are going to replace the USMC AT soldier's kit from SRAW to this SMAW.
Also, we are ready to create PF-89 or DZJ-08 as CHPLA (China forces) counterparts.
By this change, every faction has only a rocket launcher as an anti-vehicle weapon and the AT missile is only available as pick-up kit across maps.

*Delay in the release date of upcoming version (v0.32)


We just noticed in the last news update that it would be between this November and December that the upcoming version is released.
However, unfortunately, we eventually learned that the development is taking a little too longer than we expected. Therefore we decided to extend the release date.
So far, an expected date of release is in the first half of January, 2013.

*Next Thing to Do, and Developers WANTED


And lastly, we officially announce our organizational structure, development plans, and our recruitment of modders.

We, as "AIX2 Expansion MiniMOD Development Team" is a small group
that consist of Japanese volunteers.
On this website ModDB, there are four members enlisted and working, and officially we have a team leader who is also working on this mod.

As stated above, we are a very small group. Therefore, we don't have the clear views and milestones.
Every member gives ideas and they create on themselves, and then we get them on the actual version of this mod through beta testing.
Since we have to be really careful about the gaming balance of the mod, it's not quite possible to put whatever contents.
However, we almost freely come up with the hundreds of ideas and keep on developing.

Currently, we are planning to implement additional and new contents, and we need 3D model creator and level creator.
If you are an expert in creating these elements and are interested in participating in the development, you're welcome to MiniMOD team.
Upon communicating, we use our ModDB forum. We are all Japanese but if you are able to get in touch in English, that would not be a problem.

So far, we are receiving tens of great comments, feedbacks and cheerings from you guys.
Thank you for these warm messages. We'll continue working on this project appreciating those who like this MiniMOD.
See you soon, soldiers!
