Fixes/Additions in 0.19 (March 15, 2004) [Internal Release]: -Lowered center of gravity for KAT and APC vehicles. -Increased turning radius of APC. -Added ability for dropship to pick up cargo crates containing vehicles and spawn that vehicle elsewhere. The secondary fire button will pick up the cargo crate when close to it. The "deploy cargo" icon will appear if it has been picked up. Land the dropship anywhere else, and press seconardy fire again to spawn that vehicle behind you. -Placing a vehicle build crate down from the commander's factory menu within close proximity to the aircraft factory will spawn a cargo crate of that vehicle instead of the actual vehicle. A dropship is then required to pick it up and turn it into the final vehicle using its new cargo transport ability. -Added ability for already built vehicles to use pitch up (default is the up arrow) to turn itself into a cargo crate. This ability is only available when the vehicle is at full health and a dropship which is not currently carrying a vehicle is within 50 units. Its health will then drop down to zero, destroying itself and leaving a cargo crate in its place. 10 seconds will be given to exit the vehicles, and a vocal warning of "bail out" will be given. The pitch up key must be held for 4-8 seconds. This cannot be done within 50 units of any other cargo crate. -Made commander's view become clouded when looking at enemy vehicles and buildings that were not close to friendly vehicles and buildings.

This caused instability in 9.18. -Fixed command tank's player spawner from not being killed off when it should've been after 3 minutes

Fixes/Additions in 0.18 (March 1, 2004) [Internal Release]: -Added new dropship model. -Made it so that players and vehicles can't go up the cliffs on Baen Island. -Reduced AT class' RPG splash damage radius from 12 to 4. -Removed models from commander's camera -Fixed commander unable to build things sometimes until he exited the camera and got back in. -Increased engineer's walls' resistance to collisions. -Added ability for engineer to enter a built wall and easily build connecting walls on both sides. -Fixed the engineer's corner wall icon not turning blue when disabled. -Moved variable objects from being attached to the command tank to attempt to reduce command tank lag. -Fixed dying while in the commander camera not letting anyone else enter the command tank afterward. -Once again, attempted to fix the resources going to 0 instead of 100 bug. -Fixed the external view of the command tank being very far away. -Altered dust effect for KAT to snow effect on glycen pipeline. -Reduced springiness of KAT's wheels. -Added shadow to scout's rock disguise. -Fixed engineer's "Kill Placed Object" menu item taking several times to kill walls. -Made scout's grass disguise map specific. -Added resource generator to command tank. Even if you have no resource points, you'll still get 1 credit per every 10 seconds.

This fixes the possibility of building two buildings at the same time right next to eachother. -Removed ability to build near a command tank which was a popular exploit to build on the enemy command tank. -Removed ability to build near static objects on the map such as bridges and bunkers. -Fixed crash when in commander camera and pressing "1". -Changed scout's rock disguise object to the rocks on Baen, made it enterable, and gave it hitpoints so that it can be destroyed. -Fixed walls from disappearing when not looking at their center and fixed their shadows too. -Fixed the supply bunker and refinery's shadows. -Increased expack's damage towards buildings. -Fixed AT's RPG to sit on his shoulder instead of going through it. -Removed the commander's ability to place kits until next version.

No one else can enter the command tank ever as long as one person is in the tank compared with before where one person could be in each passenger seat. -The command tank's overhead camera now always moves based on which direction you're facing, IE: moving left and right will always strafe the camera left and right based on the direction the camera is facing, not the command tank's direction. Also, the minimap is always centered on the camera's position and is viewable by all players on the team, not just when close or when using the call for artillery view. -Removed the cursor from the commander's overhead view for selecting the menu. The crosshair is now accurate in selecting menu items. -Eliminated minimap icon from invisible menu variable objects that would appear when the commander's menu would appear. -Changed minimap icon for planes to triangles. -Added 3rd person view to infantry. -Fixed 1st person infantry view to look straight up. -Fixed 3rd person view for aircraft from zooming out so much. -Changed gatling gun, pistol, and medic smg weapon flashes to match with end of barrel. -Change anti-tank's RPG to not drift downward at all after firing. -Increased the rate that the medic pack and repair wrench regain energy. -Added back in enemy vehicles and aircraft showing up on the minimap when near your team's radar building. -Increased distance around buildings that you can't build within. -Fixed KAT not blowing up when its associated team loses. -Removed minimap icons from aircraft and vehicle factory menu items. -Fixed KAT driver and passengers being inside the vehicle upon exiting. -Increased the mass of all tanks. -Added new flags for each side. -Increased gatling gun and scout rifle accuracy.

Fixes/Additions in 0.11 (Jan 15, 2004) [Public Release]: -Changed precache to actually work, which reduces sudden lag in game when having to cache a new object into memory and possibly fixing crashes.

Instead, the dropship has a build crate attached to it at start. The dropship can fly off somewhere, press alternate fire to drop the crate, and then the commander can build a vehicle using the factory menu next to it as if it were a vehicle factory. After one vehicle is created, the crate disappears. The dropship must go back to the aircraft factory to pick up another crate to be able to drop another one. This is hopefully temporary until I have time to go back and add a better method for keeping vehicles attached to the dropship or at least until Battlefield: Vietnam where everyone knows there's better code for picking up vehicles. -Increased rate that supply bunker gives out ammo. -Updated light tank vehicle to new tank model.

It no longer slips and slides around. -Increased time it takes for an engineer to repair an initially placed building before it's fully built. -Made the transport so that it's damaged when upside down and when in water. -Removed artillery view from vehicles that had secondary weapons since shooting them would switch to artillery view. -Added artillery view to transport aircraft, to all 50 cal gun position on tanks, and to APC and jeep positions. -Added shadows to all buildings and increased their armor. -Eliminated minimap icon from all infantry menus, infantry placeable objects, and some invisible variable objects.

Unfortuneately, these waypoints can be seen by the other team. -Fixed bug with medic's droppable healthkit and engy's droppable ammo not becoming enabled again after one use. -Removed all instances of the homing rocket targets from vehicles.

They still need work. The anti-vehicle turret works to some degree. The anti-air turret barely works. -Added homing missile to anti-tank infantry's bazooka that homes on vehicles. -Made command tank camera's minimap icon visible across whole map. -Added end of game when command tank is destroyed.

This means pointing at the building icon and clicking will now work as it should (like in single player). -Pressing "1" to go to the first position in the aircraft, vehicle factories, or the radar building will not crash the game now. Thanks Tom Hunt. -Gave almost all objects their own network info. -Fixed where building a refinery would sometimes build a spawn bunker instead. -Made commander unable to build any other building besides the refinery on a resource point. -Made commander unable to build on top of a vehicle or building regardless of what team it belongs to. Thanks Mr. Chimp. -Changed the way resources are deducted when a building is built in the possibility that is was causing crashes. -Gave the command tank more HP. -The aircraft factory now must be repaired to 100% by an engineer before it will operate. It first spawns as a destroyed bunker in its "construction" phase and then appears as the normal bunker when repaired. This is how all buildings will be eventually.
