Hello and welcome back to the latest news update for Forgotten Hope. We have some new ingame images to share with you, as well as some informtion and announcements.
First, Forgotten Hope and Forgotten Hope 2 both made it into the top 100 mods for 2006 on ModDB.com, which means both are eligible for the second round of voting, that ends on January 1st. Thanks to ModDB, and especially, thanks to everyone that voted! Also congratulations to all the other mods who made it to the second round of voting.
Before moving on to the rest of the news, a few words of explanation — ModDB has several different categories, both for released and unreleased mods. So Voting for an unreleased mod (like Forgotten Hope 2) will not affect the voting for any released mods (like Forgotten Hope). Also, the votes of registered ModDB members count for more than votes by guests, which only affect the outcome in case of a tie between the votes of registered members. So visit ModDB, and vote for the mods you think are the most deserving. We hope one or two of them are Forgotten Hope!
OK on to the good stuff. First, we have a selection of first-person vehicle views including some narrow "sighted in" views, as well as some driver views, that give a more open perspective. The driver view gives a limited forward arc that is adjustable within narrow limits. Players can toggle back and forth between both views. Please note that all of this is very "Work in Progress", and will be further developed in light of future testing. The sights were modeled, textured and coded by ctz.
Next we have ingames of the Panzerkampfwagen IV F1 and Panzerkampfwagen IV F2. Panzer IVs, especially the long-barreled F2 version, provided the Afrika Korps with its heaviest armored striking power, until the eleventh hour arrival of the Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger, shortly before its final defeat in 1943. Both Panzer IVs were modeled and textured by Omni, coded by zapfcreations with sounds by Citizen Soldier.
That's all for this today, but be sure to come back for another news update soon. Visit our public forums to discuss this update. Don't forget to vote!
