First off, hello to all you newcomers to BF, and a nod to the veterans. I am here to herald in the news of Soldier 9's Realism Mod v2.1. First off the features: VERSION 2.1 UPDATES
1. New tanks: Firefly (replaces Sherman) PanzerIV H (replaces original PanzerIV) 2. Firefly has a gun which rivals that of the Tiger, Panzer IV H has a more powerful gun. 3. BF109 re-done: MG's are now in correct spot (above the nose) and there is a 37mm nose cannon with 25 rounds. 4. Spitfire: Has 8 MG's in the wings and carries one bomb. It has a lot of ammo, but burns it fast with 8 MG's. 5. P51: Has 6 MG's in the wings, and has larger ammo capacity. No bombs. 6. Corsair: Has 6 MG's in the wings, and more ammo. Also has 1 bomb. 7. Yak9: Has 1 MG and one 20mm Nose cannon. (both are in the engine area) 8. Zero: Has 2 engine cowl MG's and dual 20mm wing cannon's. 9. Panzer4H and Firefly have full texture set. (New textures done by L3_Dog) 10. MG42 and Browning have new shiny skins. (They look more worn out) 11. New projectile's created under the common folder: a 20mm projectile and a 37mm projectile. 12. New flags. 13. M1 Garand Added to the game. United States Engineer carries this rifle. No4 Rifle still exists, and M1 is seperate.
VERSION 2.0 UPDATES
1. All statistics have been COMPLETELY redone. 2. Infantry weapons are incredibly lethal to other infantry. 3. Det. Packs are the most effective anti-heavy armor weapon. 4. Bazooka/Panzershreck 's are now most effective against Light Tanks 5. Flak Guns rate of fire is now correct. (wow) 6. Flak Guns can run out of ammo. 7. Anything that shoots a bullet can kill infantry in 1-2 shots. 8. Guns like smg's are only effective to about 200 meters.(Also: Thompson is most effective smg within 50 meters, after that, the Mp40 is more effective, 9mm carries energy better) 9. No4 rifle now correctly holds 10 rounds. 10. Infantry have tons more ammo. 11. Grenades Decimate infantry within 15 meters. 12. Tiger tank is REEEEEAAAAALLY slow. 13. New music, and new menu picture. 14. Tiger tank can kill almost any tank in 1 good shot. 15. Artillery can now kill things fast. (1 shell)(I mean... These were BIG guns.) 16. Airplanes bomb loads corrected. 17. Bombs destroy all. 18. Torpedo Loads corrected. 19. Allies better learn to use planes... that or Det. Packs. (How else you gonna kill a Tiger???) 20. Oh yeah, you can use a bazooka or two to the rear armor. (thin) 21. Wolverine (M10) is fast, a tin can, and a powerful gun. 22. T34 is a good tank. (Until you see a Tiger) 23. OT-34/85 is the most effective all-around allied tank.(Wolverine can kill but if Axis see's it... I pity the fool) 24. Sherman's arent cream of the crop anymore. They are fast with not much armor. 25. Chi-ha? Well thank goodness it only has to face a Sherman. 26. Well at least sherman can beat a Chi-ha (Panzer 4 if your really good or really lucky) 27. Jeeps and Kubelwagons hold 4 passengers! (Base work on 4 passengers, done by Petreak) 28. Tank turrets rotate slower. (Yay) 29. B17 has a new bomb loadout: 20 - 100lb bombs. 30. Katyusha and B17 Rate of Fire is way up. 31. Dive bomber bombs have a larger damage raduis, so do Battleships. 32. There is an extra spot on the Sherman, the Panzer 4, and the T-34 w/mg. This spot can serve as a place for a tank commander, or a place for the MG'er to hide. 33. Colt model 1911 now holds 7 rounds. 34. Artillery shells have higher velocity, and thus a longer range. 35. T-34 Cannon damage has been improved, its higher now. 36. Plane's Rate of fire is Sky High. (running out of ammo high) 37. Torpedo loads on Submarines has been re-done. 38. Stuka dive drag has been re-calculated. 39. Tank armor is more realistic. 40. Grenades do no damage to any tank, except for the M10 Wolverine, but even then it is only under very limited circumstances that it gets hurt at all. 41. Panzer 4 is just a wee bit more sucky. 42. Bazooka/Panzerschrek damage range increased, so is flight velocity. (Grin)
Now for a little more info on the mod we have Maj. Koeing
502 Robinson: So realism eh? People seem to shy away from that do you think that will detract from gameplay?
Maj. Koeing: Maybe....but I feel if you don't want realism, you would play quake.
502 Robinson: So I hear you have the M1 in game. Wouldn’t that make all allies have that? Kind of detracts from the realism wouldn’t you say?
Maj. Koeing: The No. 4 is still in place as a British weapon.
502 Robinson: I see that 2.1 adds new tanks. Are these Da Crapper’s I saw on the BF match forums?
Maj. Koeing: Yes. We have permission from him to use some tanks We will be doing our own models now
502 Robinson: So this mod is really growing?
Maj. Koeing: We have definitely grown from when I started; we have 3 very talented modelers…and one of the best coders in the community.
502 Robinson: Do you plan future versions?
Maj. Koeing: In the next update, we are planning things that have only been dreamed of. They are very complex, and Soldier9 is working a lot on the code.
Pek101: Can you give us a little more info on that?
Maj. Koeing: Let’s just say, you will be able to play weapon wise.....Thin Red Line, Saving Private Ryan and Enemy at the Gates, and be historically correct.
Pek101: So we will be getting new weapons for the Russians and Japanese now?
Maj. Koeing: In 2.5, there will be AT LEAST new guns for Russia and Japan. They will have their historical sets. They will also have new skins.
