If it's just OFP w/ different models, what's the big deal?

I heard it was being developed for the US marines quite a while ago. What 'm interested in is if you can buy it or not. :D Though i doubt that if they sign a contract with the Marines, they are going to put it in a computer games shop for the public to buy. :rolleyes:

Its not unheard of, DID's F22 is both used by the USAF and is avalible to the public, ofcorse the public version is lacking a few secrets, and that shows in the cockpit (buttons left blanc).

I was more interested in the OFP expansion... so I saw this mentioned but didn't think much of it.

Yes, that is a camo'd box on the gun.

That's exactly WHY it's a big deal. BI won't release the tools to edit the game directly, so it is difficult to mod for it. A lot of people were interested in a modern-day mod, and if this will be available to the public, then it is just what we are waiting for.

Have they updated the physics of this game?

Else some soldiers will be surprised by seeing they cant use satchel charges to make tanks fly 50 meters.

Oh, and they might find that the "lawnmower jeep" tactic to clear enemy infantry is probably a little bit harder to implement in real life. :p

Just hit them with a jeep at high speed. For some reason it works pretty well :)

I prefer to use a Ural for that , can absorb more damage and you have more cover :)

1 : it's very unlikely they'll release VBS1 to the public
2 : that's why they are developing several expension : "Resistance" and "Independance Lost" in which you may have access to some units from VBS1
3 : They are about to release the mod tools! just wait a few weeks. anyway there are some free tools that allow you to create models and even islands! http://www.ofp.info
4 : I'm hungry

They will not release it to the public since VBS isnt even developed by Bohemia, but they are supplying the models to the creators(some australian company i think), so its a very good chance that they(the models) will sooner or later be released to the public.

:lol: You are funny.

This software is going to be used by real army guys. Don't you think they need to learn real strategies about war?

In all cases, I'd like to be a beta tester in the US army to show my CO that I completed the virtual mission by taking a truck and running over the whole enemy platoon.

But I guess they wouldn't like that heh?

:p

I'll only be happy when they allow you to import your own models. As it stands, modders can do nothing more than re-texture and tweak the settings of the current weapons/vehicles.

Someone made an 80mm recoiless rifle using the LAW model, which is hores<u></u>hit on so many levels.
