Thanks, give some more feedback to those have it and screenies if you can. Its going to be a while before I get it downloaded.

It's a very enhanced version of DC. there are more vehicles and aircraft. guided missiles will turn any n00b into a pro. It's only a beta so far, but a very good one. A few of the minor bugs are: SAW being able to shoot down choppers, SMAW's never hit helicopters (from what i've seen anyway). A mojor bug for me at the moment is you can't play Single Player instant battle properly (at least me and my flatmates can't), and you can't run bots on the POE maps yet. apart from that, everything else is all good. Major fun when you've got a Tunguska vs an M1 and a Commanche.

Damn, I just deleted BF:V! If this mod is as good as DC it will be worth reinstalling.

Just 1 thing I need to know: do the helicopters have the same controls as they did in DC? If so, I'm downloading this first thing tomarrow!

Just finished playing it and its awesome. The models and the maps look great especialy the Serengeti. It looks much better than DC and will be as big as it I think and I find it better and a improventment to be honest. The next release of DC will be the final they say so I think alot of the hold outs will pick up BF:VT just for POE. I love the missile seek, but it can be very easy to destroy an ememy. I am looking forward to the updates on this one. :clap:


A few random misc shots.

Lag? I usually dont get lag. May be your settings.

I play this at highest settings with my FX5700 and i get a good 60-70FPS. I play with my 5900XT and i'm gettin a good 90-110. At least so far they haven't capped the Framerate. The Helicopters are very easy to control, but are still a warning point for n00bs. *warning to flyboy wannabee's, don't fly the choppers or planes until you've learnt how in single player.

I don't feel that the game is choppy either, im playing on P4 3.0 ghz, Radeon 9800 pro and 1 gb of RAM.

Anyway, here is some random screens i took after 15 minuttes of gameplay:

Great mod :)

More screens coming when I capture any good ones...

I have done some of the flukiest Sh#t in this mod. Like shooting down an Alligator with a Commanche Anti-tank missile. And shooting down an Alligator with a SAW. And getting a commanche to loop the loop. Sideways. While escaping an Anti Air Guided Missile.

Bleh... looks very average.

I tried this mod somemore tonight, and really enjoyed playing it.

Yeah there's a lot of bugs in it, but that's what makes it more fun to play at the moment I think. :)

Wow there are already over 200 servers. I cant lie the heat seeking missiles are newbish but awesome and make sence. That Jet that takes of vertically is the cream of the crop. This MOD looks better than VT itself.

Some more shots.
Fun with C4 and tanks leaves not a dent.

08-27-04, 11:14 PM
Awesome jet, takes off vertically.

08-29-04, 04:02 PM
There's some pretty sweet stuff in POE. Personally i like the alligator, the apache and the Superflanker.
