Get the mod over at realitymod.com This build is a public open beta across about half a dozen servers to fully stress test. There are some bugs, but they can be looked past when the maps, gameplay and a whole lot of extras have been brought in. It is out in the form of a 1.4 gig torrent that installs into BF2 and allows you to play vanilla or PR seperately without any problems. Like increased jet speed (to realistic values!) like one map so far at 4k x 4k x 5k ceiling height with 1k view distance added Brit, Militia, Insurgents forces, with appropriate vehicles, aircraft and hardware realistic deviation, sounds and damage. Bleeding out process, new medic system.
Yeah, I'm totally digging this mod! I wish the PR team could get Battlefield 2's source code because DICE won't patch BF2 anyway, so they could add some really amazing stuff. If you visit the PR forums' Suggestions section you'll see that there are a lot of answers saying "Sorry, we can't do that, it's hardcoded" ....
sweet i get to walk even farther now
There is a new Open Beta release out now with a large number of changes that have become obvious since stress testing with the large numbers of public players who joined in to help. New build is v0.605.
Sir.LilBond will be upping the file to Filefront itself once he has it down.
heres a basic changelog of what has cahnged between the two Open Beta downloads :
