Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. Our team would like to wish everyone a happy belated Easter. We brought some gifts for you as well. Hopefully this update will have something for everyone, whether you are infantryman, a pilot or tanker.
We would like to kick off the update with the Supermarine Spitfire Mk. Vb in its tropical plumage. In total, 6,479 of the Mk V took to the skies during WWII. Considered to be one of the best fighters of the war, its armament consisted of four .303 machine guns and two 20mm Hispano cannons. The FH2 Spitfire was modeled by Rad, skinned by Toddel and coded by ctz.
The main attraction today are some interior views of the Daimler Dingo scoutcar. The Dingo was a speedy and rugged vehicle with four wheel drive and five gears in both forward and reverse. The rugged and dependable Dingo was so successful that it remained in service until 1952, and the design influenced scout cars developed during the war, in both Canada and Italy.
We especially wish to draw attention to the lavish interior views created by jodonell, who is resting comfortably now, after his exhausting experience replicating the internal layout of the Dingo in excruciating detail, and then suffering through a lengthy optimization process.
Last but not least it is time to unveil what our animator Killi Vanilli has been up to. This video shows the animations that bring the weapons created by McGibs, Rad, and Omni to life. Sounds for the No. 4 and K98 are provided by out betatesters FatJoe and Freggel from actual vintage weapons, with sound engineering by Bizness. Coding on the falling clipper strip was by ctz.
That's all for today, but be sure to come back for another Forgotten Hope update. And don't forget to join us on IRC. Feel free to visit our public forums to discuss this update or other news. And We are looking for a talented Sound Engineer to help further in sourcing and engineering sounds in FH2.
