That one is really nice ^. They're mentioning that the animations and muzzle flash is WIP.

I'd like to try out their Overlord-Lite. Looks like I need to start looking into a new computer for this and RS2 :)
Or you could reshade FH2  :)

FH2 won't be the last FH. ;)

Despite how much I love FH2, there are definite limitations with BF2 engine.

So I like to keep an eye on newer engines. :)

Is there a possibility to modify the BF2 engine??

Most of the features are hardcoded.

If they weren't, BF2 mods would have done extra incredible things by now. :)

How about the 2124 engine? It is a modified refractor 2.

Again, even that's an old engine that lacks many modern features a future game would want to have.

Btw, let's respect this thread for only TW content from now... :)

 Guess i have been proven correct. Vaporware.

Shame. Looked promising.


Good Day.

Well looks like Traction Wars really is no more...











Because they're now called Vanguard: Normandy 1944 ! ;D

They've also decided that it's best for the project to move away from the Free To Play model and towards dedicated servers. Looks like they're also shifting focus from large scale to smaller infantry focused engagements.

All in all, looking interesting and will probably be worth 15 $ for the Early Access just to see Pegasus bridge in its next gen glory:

Interesting, here's the press release explaining why they changed etc...

https://www.vanguardww2.com/news/dev-blog/2018/08/turning-over-a-new-leaf/

Nice to see they're still working. Looks like they're scaling down quite a bit, which might not be a bad thing. Maps like Pegasus, Merville and Lebiesy are fine for scaled down tactical gameplay.

I'm curious to see some actual video, and also how this competes with Post Scriptum. Both are "hardcore" and "tactical" featuring British vs Germans in the NW Europe. :)

Focusing on small scale does make the game stand out from all the post scriptums. I hope we'll see openable doors.

Good change, good change! "Traction Wars" really does not give associations to WW2 western front.

vid semi related.
