Just because I love to be annoying.....

Ghost Recon 1 has pretty much everything this one does, minus the third-person views I'm seeing.

backblast simulation

Too many times I've blown up my own men with the M136's backblast.

wound models

Yeah, you can get some pretty nice blood stains after surviving a frag explosion.

low-velocity grenade throws

Just tap the mouse key? No dorky floating measure arch needed.

surrendering and fleeing

Can be easily scripted in.

reloading on the move

Click R?

transpartent reticles

Always got that LOL.

body armor simulation

Can edit values of armor to make any levels of protection.

visible unit ranks

Easy.

crowd formation

Formation: Wedge, Line, Scattered.....

sound effect placement

Basic mission modding.

sandstorms

Fog set to low settings with sandy color, some nice wind sounds.

canadian forces

Sure there's a mod for that somewhere.

swedish forces

I know there's a mod for that.

water rendering

I thought that was basic stuff.

soft shadows

I love watching the Ghost snipers stalk somebody through a forest, love how the light changes on their suits.

high detail content

Everything is high detail in Ghost Recon.

high detail faces

.....

particle effects

.....

Sorry, just wanted to prove that Ghost Recon is still the best game out there. Anyway, now that I'm done being obnoxious, anyone know how you get a copy of this series? Or is it like for the military?

Like that is ever going to happen. :P:rofl:

Nice, Gordo! Makes me want to pull out my VBS discs again. Too bad my computer can't handle it any more. :(

Riley, you forgot a couple things:

being able to actualy drive vehicles

towing and vehicle recovery

limb dismemberment

bandaging

parachute

underwater diving!

terrain modification in editor!

In ARMA II and VBS2 you can parachute in outside your target at night and sneak around planting charges on things then quickly run away. In GR you have to pretend to have a parachute and are stuck with a fixed insertion location. Also, you can use bushes as concealment in ARMA/VBS, unlike in ghost recon titles where the AI have super x-ray specs.

You like realism, but GR has no bandaging! Plain old ARMA II does not, but it does if you use the ACE mod. (also, DayZ mod for ARMA II has bandaging)

*Edit

Now we just need lightspeed to do the base GR and Desert Siege missions for ARMA II to compliment his Island Thunder mod!

okokokok, this is not about ARMA, this thread is about VBS! Sorry. >_>

Zjj,

If you ever get a PC that can run it let me know.

@Rocky: No problem at all mate.

For the VBS2 PE users out there VBS2 2.0 will be provided to you guys as a free update as well.

Yeah, but I'll always be loyal to GR. Of course this looks very interesting. Ground Branch really does too.

Ground Branch is going to be a great title...no doubt about that. You only need to look at the heritage of games that group have delivered to the market.

ArmA3 is going to be another good title...and for the more hard core stuff DCS series is pretty damn good for the air side of things.

Anyway, where do you buy this?

Start with a PM to gordo requesting a quote. :thumbsup:

Riley. VBS2 is used by most of the Worlds militaries for training; we do sell a Personal Edition for serious gamers. But it's in no way priced like normal computer games and it doesn't have a campaign or any single player missions that ships with it.

It does however have a very powerful mission editor (3D) and the ability to record the action and provide an AAR and also run time authoring (changing the scenario on the fly). If you're interested shoot me a PM!

VBS2 is mainly a military tool. So it has some things that tend to set it apart from most other titles out there.

-very large terrain areas. VBS2 2.0 can support multi map technology allowing 500km by 500km terrain areas and larger

-After Action Review tool (records all the fun)

-Correlated Terrain i.e. Real World Locations

-HLA/DIS capability allows it to link in with other simulation systems

And yes GR1 is the grand poo bar for a lot of excellent FPS games out there.
