Mod Synopsis: A mod sorted out as a personal mod that became a full scale project. Look into the features:
-3 new maps are included; desert city type, desert village type and a jungle map which has been requested my many people.
-8 new character models (and new skins)
-over 850 kits (300+ rifleman, 120+ support, 300+ demo, 100+ sniper) dont be overwhelmed by this number of kits, they are well named so you can modify or remove them as you wish.
-all new 32 characters for multiplayer games (8 for each platoon)
-actors packaged in sets so you can choose; marines, boonies, delta, lex: each set comes with is own set of specialist too.
-some new kit types for multiplayer; silenced weapons only, limited explosives (gives you only 2 frags) no support, SMGs only.
At the moment the mod is 70% complete. What it really needs is some missions so mission scripters are needed.

Mod Synopsis: The main aspect of the mod is a 1km by 1km map which includes in its centre the MSR which was the real B20 target. The mod will portray an 8 man set of chrs modelled in high poly with newly paint 1024x1024 textures. Each will come with full Desert DMP half and half DMP better at night, and both version with bergan or not. Aimed more at the multi player Coop experience the player will incounter things such as Scud Launchers, BMPs, arab village, SAM Batteries, Direction Finding radio transmission loacting sites as well as other things such as goat herds and their herder. The map will come in both Dusk, Dawn and Night Versions. Combat over these distance provides a new challenge to the player specially with the lack of a command map. Included with the mod there will be a printable version of the map in Ordance Survey manner just like the real guy have to use. So you will need to naviagte using landmarks and your map. Fighting as a small unit in a large area over many battles at such long distance should provide a new experience for the player and the desert is full of "wadis" and tank berms for players to ambush Iraqi patrols. The 1 mission will be included but it will have many objectives and off mission things to engage.
