Haven't had much problems with friendly-fire for a long time.
Also seems that, at least on the servers I play on, the days of killing a team-mate so you can get a vehicle are long gone.

Loving this game, er, mod! :-)

I've found a couple of great DC team work servers. They have admins playing most of the time, who aren't afraid to ban people who a screwing up the game, people also switch sides when the game is unbalanced. It's just like every other game out there.

I played the other mods, they aren't that well polished, and have witnessed horrible tk'ing in EOD. It sounds like your blaming the DC mod for the players; it is not a fair assessment.

I will tell this too, DC is a lot of the reason that BF is being played so much, I would give it 45-65% of credit, and the guys at EA know this.

DC doesn't suck... my only beef with it is the ease of kills with stingers.

Sounds familiar. I bet they even teamkill a lot on publics so they can get the vehicle instead of a teammate...

the rest of my friends think it sucks also.

at least with forgotten hope and EOD, you can go on a pickup server and have a mutual feeling of teamwork. in DC, they don't give a shit.

31. reasons why DC sucks... Dec 21, 2003, 05:58 Merc248
 
1.) way too arcadish.

2.) absolutely no teamwork.

3.) each new version is just to appease the vehicle crack addicts... it doesn't seem like that there's any lasting gameplay elements in the mod like EOD or FH.

4.) the game ALWAYS ends up becoming a spawn camping fest. this is the thing that annoys me the most.

5.) and yes, the balance sucks. and please, don't give me the "OMG THE MOD IS STILL AN ALPHA". this mod has been out long enough and has seen enough revisions to superceed its beta status.

30. Good Upgrade... Dec 21, 2003, 05:31 Vexar
 
• The new vehicles, good!
• The new maps, luke warm. No Fly Zone is my favorite map.
• Upgraded older maps? Didn't see any changes, Bocage Day 2 could use the little bird and replace some of the black hawks, etc.
• The harrier is still a pisser to fly but I just need to practice with it more.
• New maps still need the screen shots that are shots of the actual level, etc.
• The all the tuning is awesome! Great job!
• I figure that we will have this patch for a short time; maybe a month or two before the next one comes out, at least the have a chance at testing all the new stuff before the new BF EA patch comes out with punk buster.

28. retail == pain? Dec 21, 2003, 04:23 mrBallistic
 
in response to post 21:

it not always the case that retail == lame experience. in some ways, i'd love it if more people played dc. for instance...

day of defeat is still quite fun... and it's been retail for a bit now. honestly, i think that cs is the exception, not the rule. besides, cs was full of smarktards well before it went retail anyway.

i'd really love to give trama my $ at this point. i've been playing dc more than 1942 for months now... the expansions were pretty much worthless (i think that i played secret weapons once or twice), but i play dc at least a couple of times a week (since beta .2, i think). great mod, great mod.

plus, i love being able to play as a sniper with a semi-auto gun

Any ATI video issues with anyone else ?
All of my text is blurry (again) hasn't been this way for a few alpha's now but it's back. Might have to do with the 3.10 Cat's ??
The mortar deal takes getting used to but it is the way it should be. That's why you can do Arty's with them as you are out of harms way.
Co-op is useless. (even more than it was). 50% or more of the bots in-game just stand around. I usually use Co-op to check out maps and with the new Gazelle your just picking off bots that are just looking around. But who cares about Co-op I guess.
The new weaps, vehicals, skins and all are nice but you can "Feel" the video hit the game is taking. I don't have a slouch for a machine and I'm curious to hear if others are having issues with ATI's and\or the new drivers.

The visibility range is the same I think, and its even harder because you fly jets now, which move about 2-3 times faster. However if you practice for a while, you eventually get to the point where you can fly the planes alot better and react to that shorter distance faster. Its definitly not easy at first though, and I know my comp could handle a much longer visual radius, if only they would allow me to view it.

how is it with flying fast planes and the visibility range? I remember playing BF1942 and didnt like flying planes because the visibility range was too low and you couldnt do your attack runs very well because of that.

Really, I want to know! Tell me!
In what way do you think it sucks?

If you don't like the balance, well, I'd have to agree. But it is still a work in progress. They have plenty of time to worry about balance, and it's getting better with each release. It is at least playable.

If you think it's too vehicle centric, well, that's the idea. That's just something you'd have to come to terms with, otherwise the mod is just not for you. Or if you are adament about getting into the mod (for whatever reason), you could stick to the infantry based maps like Lost Village, or Basrah Nights (which are both great maps) and it's various incarnations.

800 megs of content, thats insane, this is better then both of dice's gay expansions combined. Time for some heli action on new maps, cant beat those heli's.

Dev's making these games strive to get fan content like this, I'm glad BF1942 was the next game to hit it big with fan made mods, it deserves the attention, and only further cements the fact that good mod support is needed in game. Hopefully they wont retail this mod, while I would love the makers to receive a profit from it, retailing it attracts too many idiots and cheaters to justify doing it, just look at CS's downfall after it hit retail.

Nope. Total downloads are now over 1 million for Desert Combat on FilePlanet. The 250k is for the incremental patch. The full client is over 800k.

Um, if ever DC could POSSIBLY suck, the level of non-suckiness presented by this patch would decrease its suckiness level so much that it would, in fact, not suck.

Does that answer your question?

Seriously, I'm lovin this patch. Urban Siege is AMAZING, Operation Bragg is the first night map with air craft, and is pulled off beautifully. Gonna make for some crazy matches, and sadly, probably some increased friendly fire. And the oil rig level? I haven't played on a map with so many nooks, crannies, secret passages, and detail in a LONG time. Easy to get lost, but a master of the level will have an even easier time winning.
