Here we are again with another update from the US Intervention mod team. Progress is slow, however work still continues on map and gameplay fixes. We are nearly 50% ready towards the next release. We do not like the pace at which things are getting done, but work still continues. After all, we owe our dedicated fans who have stuck around for so long, this great desert warfare mod. Today we wish to show of 4 new items we have finished coding for USI 2.0. These items were almost cut from the next build, but with a little help, we got them done.
We decided to aid the rescue and medical field by creating medivac versions of the UH-60 and MI-17 helicopters. Pilots can land / pick up wounded soldiers and fly around out of harms way while soldiers heal up. Then they can return to the frontline to drop em of for battle. There are no weapons on these helos, so it is highly suggested that pilots get in and get out as quickly as possible.
We also added the BTR-50 and M548A1 Apcs. We have had these for some time but never included them in any builds since we already have so many vehicles to play with. So we figured “why not” and threw them in for all to enjoy.
Our AI codes has been getting some tweaks as well so that SP and Co-Op fanatics can still play if they can’t join any servers. SP will support 16 bots while Co-Op will have 32. These settings can be changed to have more bots if the player decides to but it is not recommended for low end computers due to lag. With the help from fellow mod members of Project Reality, our next update is due to show how we have added thermal imaging to some of our vehicles. Only vehicles that actually used it in the 91 gulf war will have it tho. Again to all those who still await our release, we thank you for your support and patience.
