Have you ever been shot at with an MMI that launches squirrels? GR.net Consultant NYR can attest to how fun squirrel MMI wars are when he had a private screening a few days ago. The amount of laughter and explosive squirrels flying is a great "stress reliever" as NYR put it. So what are you waiting for you can download the mod and you can find the rules and IP's to RSi's server. More reading in our forums here.
"Well, here goes on a short tute on how to texture individual faces and polygons without detaching them first.... I'm going to use an earlier version of my CV9040C model as its one of the few models I have laying around right now without any textures applied."

Azz Cup Complete
Congratulations to all the ranking teams, and also those teams who didn't manage to place high, but still remained loyal to the tournament and turned up for every game, that in itself is worth a mention. The full leaderboard can be viewed here although it is not in points order at the time of this news post.
A huge thanks to all the [BAD] guys for the enormous amount of work they put into the competition - it's been a huge success!
Here's how Don Miguel describes it..
"This tool will allow you the player to configure your platoon to have up to 3 squads (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie). And will allow each of these 3 squads to have up to 6 men each. In the end, you can have up to 18 playable platoon members for your missions instead of Ghost Recon's default of 6."
Pretty neat huh? There are a couple of quirks worth a mention. After you launch the mission using the custom launcher supplied with the mod, you should press escape to access your Ghost Recon options menu, then return to the game - this will activate your own usual game settings. Secondly, to access each member of the platoon use the keyboard shortcut - not the pop-up command map, otherwise the mission will crash.
So, now you can replay any of the default Ghost Recon missions with huge backup coming in mob handed to make up for sometimes questionable friendly artificial inteligence! It's great fun, give it a blast. Download here, and leave feedback for Don Miguel here.
Also good luck to all the teams in the Azz Cup which draws to a close in a few days, when the winners will be announced here. The Ghost Recon community oes a huge debt of gratitude to [BAD] and Alpha Squad for these fantastic coop tournaments!

"The center piece of DYNACOMP is our non-linear campaign. That's right, a non-linear campaign. The choices you make in each mission directly affect the order of the missions for you."
"We've also completely overhauled the operative/kit selection process. Without revealing any proprietary details just yet, let me tell you that you will no longer have to wade through hundreds of kits to find what you want."

So what do you get for your 170Mb download? First of all this is an extremely immersive campaign based initially on the East Timor conflict of 1999 / 2000. There is some interesting background reading included in the installation, which I suggest you read as it sets the scene brilliantly.
There are far too many features in this mod to list here, so here are just a few of the highlights.
Finally, there were quite a few modders in on this project, please check the extensive readme webpages included in the installation for the full credit list.Forum discussion and mod buildup in the forums here.
Secondly, Operation Stabilise is being tested by GhostRecon.net Supporters right now, and Aus Viper hopes to release it very soon assuming there are no last minute problems! Read more on this massive campaign here.

GR Real Locations
The Castle, Vilius and Red Square are all based on real locations and thanks to Schenkanator's painstaking research we can now fully appreciate the work that the Red Storm team did in designing these maps. A series of nineteen photographs compared to ingame screen captures shows the stunning resemblance beautifully - check it out here!
