Command massive capital ships to turn the tide of war! Introducing the U.S.S. New Jersey Battleship, modeled and textured by BombProofVest as a final farewell. He has accepted a position at Vicarious Visions to work on games for a living, even though it is bittersweet for us, he sure went out with a "Bang." Next is the epically huge U.S.S. Enterprise Carrier, modeled and textured by ScreamingCricket. For those who command the carrier, it allows for massive air strikes by the planes it carries.

Screen shots include from left to right: White Phosphorous, Dog Fight with a MIG, Jungle Patrol.

Thanks to our fans we've made it into the Top 100 on Mod Database. Now is the time cast your final votes!

The Vietnam Team wishes everyone a Merry Christmas!

Second Batch of Beta Testers Announced!

The next set of testers are up for their tour of duty. They will be contacted with instructions by e-mail or PM and have until friday the 17th to respond.

Beta Team 2
ChineseICman
Mr.kanga
prophet of the pimps

Ranger_Logan

We are currently at internal beta 0.2 which implements what we call Village Logic. This allows players to occupy and control villages scattered throughout the map. Since villages will be key to game play and acquiring money once your starting supply dock goes dry, players will have to go out and secure villages. This will be major hotspots during conflicts, which brings in our morality system. Villages work as follows:

To capture a village, you must capture the Master Hut and then have $2000 worth of units within the immediate area of the village. You will be rewarded with $600 every 30 seconds for achieving this.
If your forces leave the village, money will stop being supplied to you from that village, regardless if the master hut is captured. The more villages you control and occupy, the more cash you will receive. Larger maps contain more villages.
Moral System: If you attack a whorehouse or village structure, villages will refuse to provide you with money for a length of time depending on the building ( a warning will flash up ). If an important structure is destroyed, the villagers will rebuild it eventually - so it's not the end of the world. This will encourage players to think strategically in liberating a village from another player, lest their supply of money is hindered. You will not be able to garrison village huts since the morality penalty is involved with huts being attacked. Other civilian buildings and structures you will be able to garrison and attack (without morality penalty) that are not part of the villages.

Private Testing to Begins Today, October 30th! Media Releases End Today!

Today the Beta Testers get their hands on the first internal Beta. It will be trial by fire as the Devs take on our Testers. So for our last day of media releases, we want to show off some more units in game that we have not previously released. First up we have a line of the M102 Towable artillery show in it's deployed position and firing. While artillery has a long range in the game, it's field of view is small, thus requiring a forward observer of some sort. This also holds true for the M110 mobile artillery.

Next is the B52 bomber, modeled and textured by JohnRambo before he left to work for Tripwire Interactive on the retail version of Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. The B52 will drop a realistic number of bombs, leaving a path of destruction. The B52 can be called in by the Marine Force Recon unit. Last up is just more napalm and things burning, no more no less.

Our media event wraps up today as we begin testing. We hope everyone enjoyed our media release as we were able to show off some of our hard work. As mentioned friday, the first group of beta testers was small to make sure everything we have set up goes smoothly. If all goes well, the next batch of testers will be announced soon afterward in the following week(s). As the testing continues, more and more groups will be announced.

Those of you itching to try our mod and are interested in helping us get all the bugs out, sign up in to be a beta tester if you have not already done so. Signing up doesn't guarantee a position, but it puts you on the list we choose from. If you're not on the list, there's no way to become a beta tester. So go sign up!

Private Testing to Begin Monday, October 30th! Media Releases All Weekend!

While we begin making final preparations and last minute game tests before the beta testers grab a hold of the first beta build, we continue our media onslaught. The U2-R makes its in game appearance today. A later level ability, the U2-R can be called in from off the map to take spy photos of the area. The other screen shot is a napalm run on a village at the edge of the jungle.

 

Our media event is finally wrapping up before we begin testing. Check back again tomorrow, Monday 30th, for new media. As mentioned friday, the first group of beta testers was small to make sure everything we have set up goes smoothly. If all goes well, the next batch of testers will be announced soon afterward in the following week(s). As the testing continues, more and more groups will be announced.

Private Testing to Begin Monday, October 30th! Media Releases All Weekend!

 

Today we are showing some redesigns not yet released. We have decided that one or two Airfields should be all the american forces would ever need. Since the USA has a strong focus in air support, we have upgraded our old airfield to include 8 planes now. The previous version held only 4 but took up twice the build space. Although extending the runway would be more true to life of a real airfield, we have kept it the same length as the one in Generals because of the space required. Playability won over realistic.

Next we have a retexturing of our M113 APC. While the old texture served its purpose, it just wasn't up to the same visual quality as the rest of the units. The retexturing was done by Lynx. The door will open and close as troops enter and exit the vehicle.

 

Our media event is in full swing. Keep checking back every day through Monday, 30th, for new media.

Beta Testers Announced! Private Testing to Begin Monday, October 30th! Media Releases All Weekend!

It's been awhile since the last update, but we have been working very hard on getting the Alpha into a Beta. Many people have signed up to play the beta in the Beta Sign Up thread on our forums. While we couldn't pick everyone to start testing immediately, we decided to start off with a small team of testers to make sure everything goes smoothly during the first week or so. Once we are sure things are working correctly, we will announce the next batch of beta testers and slowly increase testers as things move forward. So the first batch of beta testers are:

Beta Team 1
Fighting Phantom
Professor
Ubermedic

Beta Team 1 testers will be contacted by E-mail or PM with further instructions. Testing will begin Monday, October 30th. So be sure to respond by then. Beta Team 2 will be announced soon. Keep in mind the first set of testers is small, we will gradually increase team size when the testers are announced.

But to celebrate the beginning of testing of the Pegasus Release, we will be releasing media all weekend leading up to the day of testing. Today we would like to show our custom jungle trees in game to give everyone a taste of what the maps will look like.

 

Check back every day through Monday, 30th, for new media.

Since last time, we allowed you to vote on what you guys wanted to see in the next update. It seems it didn't matter as long as we just gave you guys more, more, more. This week we will show off particle effects, all made by CBoidy8888. First up we have the A1 Skyraider dropping 250 lbs bombs and their resulting explosions. Next is the F105 dropping 500 lbs bombs. The F105 and A1 will also have the option of dropping napalm, an effect shown in previous updates. The M48 Patton tank has new smoke particles applied to it resulting in a more realistic firing sequence.

CBoidy8888 also created a very nice missile effect and smoke trail. AultN8R continues modeling the NVA infantry, this week we are showing the NVA Officer who will command the NVA squads.

AntiSocialKindaGuy, our resident coder, has been grinding along getting the USA side ready for the Pegasus Release. He believes we will be ready to begin private beta testing in a month. That's right, in October, we will hopefully be able to begin selecting beta testers. If you have not done so, sign up to be a Beta Tester! Be sure to read the instructions on how to apply or your application may not be selected. We will be sure to keep you all updated on when exactly this will happen, provided no major bug pops up. All selected beta testers will be contacted by e-mail and announced in the forums when it is time.

Although the USA side has been locked with the current content, the NVA and VC sides are still open to your ideas! Stop by our forums and tell us what type of features YOU would like to see in the mod. The Idea's thread is ever growing and expanding with ideas from the fans. Let your voice be heard and check it out here.

This Month in Vietnam - August 4, 1964
The captain of the U.S.S. Maddox reports that his vessel has been fired on and that an attack is imminent. Though he later says that no attack took place, six hours after the initial report, a retaliation against North Vietnam is ordered by President Johnson. American jets bomb two naval bases, and destroy a major oil facility. Two U.S. planes are downed in the attack. On August 7, 1964, the U.S. congress passes the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, giving President Johnson the power to take whatever actions he sees necessary to defend southeast Asia

AultN8R continues his onslaught of infantry for the NVA. He has finished the NVA Sharpshooter who has an SVD Sniper Rifle at her disposal. The team wanted to represent women soldiers who also fought for the NVA with the inclusion of a female sniper. The sniper will be stealth when not moving; she will be able to lay down to increase her firing range and accuracy; as well as crawl, which will allow her to keep her stealth ability active while moving. The Mechanic, shown on the right, has the ability to repair or rebuild vehicles in the field, essentially "healing" damaged vehicles or recovering destroyed vehicles to working order. He is armed with a TT33 side arm. Both infantry were modeled and textured by AultN8R.

 

More updates will be coming your way soon, until the next time, you can vote if you want to continue seeing infantry updates or see more buildings available to the NVA. Go here to cast your vote now! --voting closed--

Incoming enemy mortar fire, location unknown - please advise! This week the NVA Mortar Team is called for duty. AultN8R has continued his media blitz with 3 more soldiers that make up the NVA Mo tar Team. All 3 soldiers act as one unit, having the soldier that aims the mortar, the soldier that carriers mortar rounds and loads the mortar, and finally the spotter. The mortar team is able to move to different areas and deploy where they are needed. A unit of soldiers that are mobile and able to lay down a suppressive bombardment on enemy locations will make the Mo tar Team a valuable unit to the NVA.

Coding progressively moves forward on the USA infantry. AntiSocialKindaGuy has coded a brilliantly working squad dynamic for the USA fire teams. The new squad dynamic allows for quick and easy move and attack commands for the entire fire team, and is even flexible enough to let the player micro-manage each individual soldier in the squad if they feel the need. Squads can also be tailored to different situations, such as a squad for attacking tanks or a squad for holding a location. The idea behind dynamic squads is to allow for epic battles but at the same time being able to quickly control your troops with the least amount of micro-management. More details and videos showing how squads work (and the advantages over controlling just a single unit at a time) will be shown in the coming weeks.

Reports out of Vietnam show troop movement coming from the north. AultN8R has been hard at work supplying troops to North Vietnam. Everything shown this week is his work, both models and textures. On the left is the standard NVA infantry. In the middle is the RPG Trooper, and the right shows him upgraded with the SA-7 for shooting at aircraft.

Now that school and college is out for everyone, the pace of things should pick up more. There are many little details that must be taken care of as the coding continues. AntiSocialKindaGuy is working on making sure the code for the infantry is as perfect as possible, which is good because infantry is the focus of our mod. I know it is taking awhile, but we do have 9 infantry types that have a wide range of abilities. We want to release the best mod we can so you keep coming back for more. Just hang in there, soldier, don't go AWOL on us yet.

There are a lot of things going on behind the scenes right now, which we can't talk about yet, but we will release bits and pieces in the coming weeks. The only thing I can say at this time is that what we are doing will make our mod unique and completely different from any other Generals Mod currently in development. That should be enough to keep you in the jungle for another tour of duty.

Stop by our forums and tell us what type of features YOU would like to see in the mod. The Idea's thread is ever growing and expanding with ideas from the fans. Let your voice be heard and check it out here.

Fresh from the Jungle, BombProofVest completes the Incinerator for the NVA. This building will power other NVA structures. ScreamingCricket has completed the NVA Bunker and Barrier. Made from stone, dirt, and wood, these structures are the equivalent to the USA barriers shown in the recent weeks. The Bunker is essentially a corner for the wall that can be garrisoned , seen below are 4 bunker segments.

Our new member, AultN8R, has begun work on the NVA infantry, so keep an eye out in the coming weeks for them. Check out our NVA list to see all the Infantry the NVA has at their disposal. Remember we will have 9 buildable infantry types per side to start with, so it should give the players a wide range of options depending on their play style.

The other recent addition to the team, Hattori, has begun working on modeling some vehicles. So we should be able to keep a stream of content flowing to you all. Coding progresses and we'll be showing off some of our special features we've come up with as soon as we can. We can't wait to share some of things we have planned.

As promised, more USA barriers this week. The Sandbag Bunker will line up nicely with Sandbag Wall (shown in the last news update) and act as a corner to the wall. The bunker will be able to hold infantry as well. The Sandbag Bunker was modeled and textured by ScreamingCricket. Mapping continues as well, below is a shot from Nuka5's new map "Dong Hoi Costal." Dong Hoi Coastal is a realistically large cove with many routes into each base. Expect artillery and aircraft to play a pivotal role, plus beach assaults!

 

Work has started on the NVA buildings; expect to see some in the near future, as well as barriers for the NVA. As usual, coding is coming along and we can't wait to show everyone the results of what we're doing. So hang tight.

We've also had 2 modelers join the team, so some you all should start seeing a steady increase of more stuff soon. As always, stop by our forums and tell us what type of features you'd like to see in the mod. The thread seems to have gotten pretty popular, check it out here.

Much has been going on behind the scenes this past month and we'd like to share just some of what's been going on. BombProofVest has turned out another amazing model and texture of the PT76 Amphibious Tank used by the NVA. He has done some excellent texture work on this tank and as you can see, it turned out very nice. We've also been creating some barriers for both sides. The USA will get the sandbags shown below, model and texture by ScreamingCricket. There are more barrier objects that will be shown soon.

 

Progress on the mapping side has been proceeding along as well. ScreamingCricket has been working on an epic 8 player map that will also allow for naval warfare. Dense jungle will bleed into dense, dusty city streets. Rivers sprawl throughout the map and through the large city along the middle of the map. Below are some screens of the map in progress, but we wanted to let you all know we still are working at a steady pace.

Work steadily moves forward on the mod, and we have some things to show off. First of all, BombProofVest has completed the towable ZPU4 Anti-Aircraft gun and it looks amazing as usual. It will require men to operate the guns once it's deployed, but take out the gun crew and it's yours to tow away. Nuka5 has been creating some great maps; the two screen shots below are of his four player map "Outposts." This one should turn out to be an excellent jungle warfare map.

ScreamingCricket has also been hard at work creating a 6-player map called "Jungle Delta." This map was also built with some naval warfare in mind, and includes some wide beaches to assault, as well as some local towns and villages to take over. Below are some shots of the map. It's still being worked on, but is shaping up nicely.

For those of you that are unaware, we have started adding cameos to the NVA section. Feel free to check those out and let us know what you think. AntiSocialKindaGuy continues to sift through code as he tries to make sense of all that has been done by the coders that came before him. In many cases he has had to rewrite a lot of things to get rid of bugs or make the code more proficient. I know many of you cannot wait and some have even grown inpatient to the extreme. Just hang in there, it may take a little longer than planned to get to first release, but we want to have a solid mod free of as many bugs as possible. The Pegasus Release will happen.

In the mean time, NVA models are being completed at a steady rate, and things are being finalized for the Hydra Release. Planning for the Medusa Release has also started, and we will be releasing details on what to expect for that in the next few weeks. So as you can see, a lot of things are being done at a steady rate.

We have some new units to show this week. As our new coder begins to organize the code and fix bugs, the modelers have been busy starting up on the NVA. But as a last minute addition to the USA, the U2-R will be available to spy on your enemy. The U2-R will fly onto the map and circle it a few a times then leave with its intel of pictures. Once it leaves the map, all enemy positions will be revealed. But the U2-R can be shot down, and if done, then it's a race to recover the black box before the enemy does with a chance of still seeing enemy positions. If the enemy recovers it first, your positions will be revealed! ScreamingCricket modeled and textured the U2-R.

 

BombProofVest has dived back into modeling and texturing the NVA vehicles. He recently completed the T-62 tank for the NVA. We will now be able to start focusing on getting models done for the NVA as coding for the USA gets done.

Nuka5 has joined our team as a full time mapper, he has already starting creating a fantastic looking map. We'll be sure to release some screenshots of it once it is finalized.

We are still interested in taking on a modeler and/or texture artist as well. If interested, please apply and send samples of your work or site previous experience (with links if possible.)

A small update this week, but we want to show we are still working steadily. ScreamingCricket and BombProofVest have created some more menu art. ScreamingCricket created a skirmish icon displaying for the main menu, he also created the main menu art. BombProofVest created the last load screen featuring the M79 Grenade soldier.

SouthSideDiablo joins the team to take over Public Relations for the mod, this should give ScreamingCricket more time to work on more stuff for the mod and spend less time worrying about sending out news and advertising. So be sure to welcome him on board.

We are in desperate need of a Primary Coder, the mod cannot continue until we find one. We prefer an experience INI coder who has previously worked/working on a mod. We need someone who is reliable and has time to commit to helping us finish this mod. We are still interested in taking on a modeler and/or texture artist as well.

A few of the V|GO team work on the Retail version of Red Orchestra, more in game screenshots have been posted. GameInformer magazine did an interview with Tripwire's President about how it was just a mod that moved to retail game. It is an interesting read and gives some great mods hope to actually becoming a retail game. One particularly interesting topic near the end of the interview was how Tripwire got a hold of Soviet Military Documents that has never been seen outside the former Soviet Union. Look for Red Orchestra to hit stores in March.

BombProofVest
has created a loading screen for us, pictures surrounding a map of Vietnam, overlaid by flags from each side. ScreamingCricket has made the last building Cameo, which is the USA Supply Center. CBoidy8888 has been busy creating some fabulous particle effects for us. An example of some of the things he has done are below. First off is a nice no-lag fog effect, which will pretty amazing when we get our custom jungle trees into the game.

CBoidy8888 has also created a realistic M48 Patton muzzle blast and smoke effect, an artillery explosion, as well as worked on how we will be representing Agent Orange and Blue. The last picture is the C-123 (modeled by BombProofVest) spraying Agent Blue. Although in real life, it is white in color, for the sake of easy recognition as to what type of Agent is being sprayed, we have tinted the spray and mist a blue hue and an orange hue for Agent Orange. This should give you a taste of some of the neat stuff CBoidy8888 has completed for us so far.

Aside from looking for a good mapper, we are also looking to take on another modeler and/or texture artist since modeling for the NVA side will be starting back up shortly. If interested, please apply and send pictures of your work.

continues coding, getting all the current bugs out of the USA side. Since all the units are finished for the USA, work now turns to the menu art. We are showing some of the graphic work ScreamingCricket has done so far. The two shown are loading screens. We also wanted to show what an artillery barrage on infantry will look like, they do blow apart into bloody chunks. The Marine Force Recon soldier has the ability to radio in artillery support.

We also have some more screen shots to show to help tide you over. The first shows two M110 howitzers and a M48 Patton tank.. The second are a group of M60 gunners, two are deployed in front of a village, the last shows a group of M113 crossing a stream, accompanied by MUTTs.

We'll have some more graphics and menu art to show soon. Also CBoidy8888 joins the team to do particle effects for us, he does some fantastic looking stuff; expect to see some neat things from him soon.

BombProofVest
has finished texturing the Tango ATC he modeled. The Tango will serve as Mobile Helipad able to service and hold one of the smaller helicopters , such as the Huey, Cobra, or Little Bird. The Tango is the last USA unit to be textured, all that remains is for the USA is coding. It can also hold one ground vehicle below deck, allowing for an amphibious assault . ScreamingCricket has continued work on the USA command bar, there is still some tweaking to be done, but it is essentially finished.

 

We also would like to release some screen shots since most of the work going on now is coding. The first is the M110 Howitzer Artillery in the undeployed and deployed state, note the giant shovel it shoves into the ground to keep from flipping over when it fires. The middle shot shows the OV-10 Bronco circling the target area. And the last screen shot on the right shows part of the USA base, the A-1 Skyraider has just dropped its 500 lbs bomb. The A-1 can be upgraded to drop napalm bombs as well.

Work continues on coding and getting the rest of the units into the game such as the naval units. Graphics for the menu and interface has also begun, the splash image for when the game loads up is opened to submission by fans. The ones that are picked will be able to help test the beta.

We are still wanting to take on a skilled Mapper that can make EA quality maps, so if you have the skills and the time, Apply and send your best map or pictures of your best map for review.
