Unexpected interview


Recommended Posts

Hey all, I haven't been on GR.net for a few months or modding for that matter, you might remember me as the guy that made the American Civil War mod and Section1 mod, and working on a few other mods.

Anyways, today my buddies and I went to North Carolina to play in a big paintball match just outside of Raleigh, and afterwards I noticed the guy who had been parked right next to us the whole time had a GR2 tee-shirt that says "Stonewall" on the back. So I talked to him about Ghost Recon and guess who he ends up being? Jeremy Brown, map-builder for Red Storm!!

I asked him questions about GR2 and GR3, he had a lot of positive things to say about Summit Strike, and currently he is working on the multiplayer aspect of GR3. He said more but I don't know if I'm at liberty to publicly divulge some of the GR3 things he told me(maybe PM me?).

Seeing as how I spent the better part of 5 years modding the hell out of GR1, I talked to him a lot about that, and encouraged him to visit GR.net. He said he designed the Farm map, Castle map (m06 I assume) and the docks. He told me that the original docks map was supposed to be about twice as big. A lot of map-modders here might be glad to know that even RedStorm map-builders have a tough time with Sherman levels! For GR2 he was responsible for Pilot down and another one that I can't remember off the top of my head(i'm not real big into GR2). He also told me what I had suspected for a long time, that GR2 PC was canceled due to the limited PC market(and Ubi wanted to focus on GR3 for XBox360), even though GR2 PC itself had already been completed by Red Storm(am I at liberty to divulge this? :unsure: ).

If anyone has any questions, you're welcome to PM me.

Unless he told you it was "off the record" I wouldn't worry about the UBI secret police kicking in your door at 3am and dragging you off somewhere. :P

But if your not sure if you can post things, don't. Its better to be safe than sorry, you don't want to get him in any unesscary trouble. ;)

That's somewhat hard to believe but if it's true they should let us have it free via download like they did Iron Wrath for the RVS fans. :yes:
