------------- PoE Release v1.0 -------------

Thanks for downloading the Point of Existence
Modification for Battlefield Vietnam.

Release Notes:
There will be some problems, bugs, and imbalances because we don't have unlimited time to track down every problem. You may also find some unfinished parts of the mod, which will be finished in a later patch.

Some things you won't figure out because they wern't in Battlefield Vietnam:

The MBT's (M1A2 Abrams, T-90) and the Bradley IFV are equipped with an ammo switching system. There are two types of rounds:
-Armor penetrating Sabot round
-High Explosive HEAP round
To switch between the 2, you use your "hatch up/hatch down" keys. (Default up arrow, down arrow)
To fire a Sabot round, press the up arrow (assuming default control scheme) and shoot the round as normal.
To fire a HEAP round, press the down arrow (assuming default control scheme) and shoot the round as normal.
You do not need to press the arrow each time you want to fire a round, it will stay on the same setting until it is switched. When you first get into the tank, the rounds are set to SABOT.

A Sabot round is useful against Main Battle Tanks and IFV's.
A HEAP round is useful for killing Humvees or the Russian GAZ jeep, or infantry.

There is no sound or visual indication when the ammo type is changed, you will only be able to tell by the appearance of the shell and the resulting damage.

A Sabot round leaves a bright streak behind it, and a HEAP round leaves a dirty grey smoke trail. A HEAP round will have a larger and brighter explosion when it comes in contact with the ground.


The .50 Calibre machine gun mounted on the Humvee can be rotated 360 degrees using your strafe keys (default a and D)


You cannot switch from position 1 (pilot) to position 2 (gunner) in helicopters to prevent people from switching back and forth and using both weapon loadouts. If you want to switch, you must be on the ground, simply hop out and get back in, when you get in a chopper you will always go to position 2 if it is empty.


The AN-94 fires 2 rounds almost simutaneosly, which is why your ammo counter is going down by 2 each time you fire.
