Alpha 0.75 release: New map, A.I radio chat, Teammate A.I overhaul and lots more…

Dear Gamers,

After several intense work days, I finally release to you this new update. The least we could say is that this update is going to greatly enhance squad gameplay tactics.

First of all the number of squad members passes from 4 to 6. You can now add 2 more teammates to your team and their fully customizable. In addition you can now decide how many teammates you bring on mission with you. A other big Improvement in this update is the complete revision of the squad command orders menu. You can now give many more orders to your teammates individually or as a group.
- Place/Diffuse mines / C4
- Deactivate turrets / alarms / jammers…
- Regroup orders/ copy stance / Close and loose formations…

Activating the command menu will slow down game time for better and more precise command and execution of orders. Your missions will become more tactical and strategic.

Also squadmates will now communicate via radio during missions. They will report all events and actions carried out (spotted or neutralized enemies, target hits, injuries, grenade throws and more…). This will greatly enhance game immersion.

The next big addition to this update is the new map baptized: Redwood Forest.
A medium size map where vegetation is dense, military Bases and river streams mix alongside each other.

Like always this update completes itself with a multitude of improvements and fix’s. As usual I hope this new content pleases you and don’t hesitate to report any bug reports and suggestions.

Stay Rock and roll, long live beer and good wine.
