    Those bastard developers on the desert combat team decided to release DC 0.3 on saturday. Saturday is the first day of my exam week >=-(

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..........

    It's a mod for battlefield 1942. It's basically replacing all the world war two era weapons and vehicles with modern day warfare. So instead of lame stukas and zeros you have migs, AH64 helicopters, A10 warthogs, etc..

    Also AC130 gunships and cargo planes. Yays.

    Battlefield 1942 owns, www.desertcombat.com

    I'll probably get the new mod update tonight since there was a pre-release today on fileplanet. I'm sure someone has cracked it and released it to kazaa by now.

    That would have to be totally unrealistic to be a good game. The American armed forces are too one-sided to make a game of. For example, the M1A1 tank is covered in depleted uranium armor, it's almost impervious to most equivalently sized munitions.

    I just finished downloading the new 0.3 update and messed around a bit with the hind gunship and took out a mobile SCUD launcher.

    The warthog rapes everything, but it looks like there are more planes now, and it is in less maps.

    More tanks too.
    Are those the same tanks that the Iraqis destroyed with an RPG? The same RPGs that bounced off crappy british tanks?

    There were two tanks that were destroyed by RPGs. Both tank crews survived and were airvacuated after a warthog mowed down the ****ty little pickup with the iraqis in it.

    Might have been bradleys though. I'm pretty sure they were the big tanks.

    bradleys most likely. M1A1 tanks can survive a direct hit from anything but a HEAT shaped-charge round.

    I win again.

    I love the AH64 chopper. Fly around owning tanks, scuds and infantry. Sucks when the migs shoot you down though, then I just steal the Hind from the enemy base :ninja:

    me = explosive diarrhea

    Here are some pics, but they are a bit messed up. The in-game screenshot thing on my computer seems to have a few problems with transparencies, so instead of rockets you'll just see transparent, also for windows and a few other textures.

    So you can see them here but be aware that the transparency doesn't exist in game.

    15 shows me in base as assault class, AA gatling tank on left, machine gun humvee in center, bradley on right.
    16 shows bradley on left, abrams in center, AH64 chopper in center, mobile artillery on right
    17 close up of AH64 chopper
    19 is me shooting a vehicle (tank) with rockets from chopper. Hud view.
    21 is me bombarding two tanks with missile and rockets from chopper.
    22 is me shooting an iraqi amphibious APC transport with rockets
    24 is rear shot of C130 aircraft. Acts as a mobile spawn point for coalition forces, has a minigun, gattling gun and machine gun. You can see them on the left side. Pilot doesn't shoot, you need other people to man the guns inside.
    26 is me finding an iraqi tank hiding by a lake
    27 is me shooting rockets at said tank
    29 is a shot of their base, tanks on the left foreground, aircraft in the background. Hanger on the right, repair pad on the left background and an AA gun centre background.
    30 is a shot of the background, mobile artillery on the left, scud launcher to the left of that, amphibious APC on the left, HIND chopper in the back with two migs and a fighter jet.
    31 is exterior view of my heli shooting SCUD launcher with rockets.
    32 is said scud launcher blowing up.
