New Desert Combat

The Desert Combat Website now offers version 0.35 of this modification that adds modern day warfare to Battlefield 1942 (thanks Ant). The main focus of the update is bug fixes and balance tweaks, though there is also an enhanced new weapons system, some new weapons, and a new map called LostVillage.

I haven't gotten to play .35 yet, but the last version was pretty balanced. Both sides win pretty frequently, and you can get lots of kills with any vehicle and class, if you know how to use it. That meets my definition of balance.

If they've improved on that, I'm gonna have lots of fun with it (if I can only pull myself away from Freelancer for a moment...).

and other guy #3

Just to be fair to you guys, AND the first poster....
He did in fact post it 4 hours earlier, however, he posted an extremely short sentence about it in the Doom3 thread.

I clicked his nick, saw the post, then clicked the post#, which showed me the thread he posted the information in and what time he posted it. FYI

Sounds cool, does this play in co-op mode at all ? (like playing on a LAN against friends and bots make up the numbers)

the new map is great. the level only has a single vehicle (huey with a rotary minigun for a passenger to use) the rest is pure FPS with house to house fighting. They spaced the ammo boxes far enough apart so it doesn't end up a grenade-spamming-fest like Berlin or any other *urban* style map.

I can't wait to see what they'll come up with next

just finished playing some... could only find 3 servers with the new version and even then i was in a game with 2 other people. at least i could get a good feel for the units and weapons since it was my first time...

it's pretty fun.. i think the game is more balanced but i didn't play for too long...

the planes fly very smoothly except i cant handle that chopper

i like the 2nd anti armour weapon...

1 thing i don't like is the different physics in the tank fire or anti tank weapon but that will just get some getting used too

FUN FUN FUN... now wtf am I still doing up?

So is this balanced enough to play now? I'm avoiding this mod until its properly balanced.

Now you know how Iraq feels ....
Plus the rest of the world that pisses off GW ...
Any game that requires a bunch of "Geeks" that don't know each other to try and put out some sort of organized team strategy against a bunch of other nerds is going to be un-balanced. Welcome to the world of Multiplayer Team style.
How could a game that pits the Allies against Iraq E V E R be balanced ?
It's still fun as allll HELL !!!

11. is it supposed to be a challenge? May 12, 2003, 23:48 5peed
 
The way the US armed forces pasted over the iraqi army, i don't see how this mod will be any fun. . .

I mean, if it's anywhere near "true to life" the iraqi forces will be vastly outgunned.

Yes, i realize that it's JUST A GAME and they're putting shit-tons of work into making a fun and different addon. TBH i'll probably try it out. But the premise doesn't seem that sound.

The comment was intended for our original poster, but your comment adds humor to the situation, because the poor sap wanted really badly to be given credit for reporting that.
