    Desert Falcon - Reinforcements for Assault players:

    The characters give the player the feeling of beeing a member of a military unit. This is extremly funny in most of the Assault missions, where they fit perfectly to the enviroment.

    The pros:
    The suits are looking great and the "desert camo" does much for the athmosphere.
    The team members are very variedly.
    The portraits are at right size and in right pose, so they give the right feeling.

    The cons:
    The teamcolors are not as recognizable as they should be. But a to "heavy" colorsheme would obviously ruin the entire suits. An understandable choice.
    Portraits have been reported not to work in some cases in game.
    Characters lack any bio.

    Words by reviewer:
    This skinpack provides perfect conditions for hot assault showdowns. Not for the extremly futuristic ones, but on all others they work great.
    Get another military sqad skinpack (for instance: the olympians) and enjoy the show!

    If you want to ad bios and the team choosable as character for Single Player, you can take the Bio made by Starry Might and my patched upl (added string to bio, an entry for Bot spawning and made the team chooseable as character for SinglePlayer) from the attachement:
    Retail version users take the DesertFalcons-retail.zip, unzip the DesertFalcons.upl to the \UT2004\system-dir (overwrite the original upl).
    Then copy all contents from the DeserFalcons.txt-file and ad this to the Xplayers.int.
    User with the latest patch simply copy both files from the DesertFalcon.zip to their \UT2004\system-dir.

    Total Score: 7/10

    Nice review, MäxX. I have this pack and like it quite a bit. :) 8/10 from me.

    I've noticed that when you're playing with them in an actual match, most of their portraits don't work properly.

    Oh, and as for Bios, I've made up my own for them (unfortunately, you would have to edit the .upl file to add Text strings that point to these Bios in XPlayers.int or something like that, though):

    Slaughter, if you're reading this and would like to use these Bios in an update of this pack (assuming that you do one, of course), give me a holler via PM. ;)
