Default Point of Existence

Point of Existence is a free mod by the makers of Desert Combat that portrays some apparent future struggles over oil reserves in Africa. Utilise weaponary from either the Americans or from the Russians. This game requires BFV minimum specs, so don't expect huge numbers of players on the net at first. Following in true Desert Combat style, this mod will take place entirely in the desert.

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 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.

edit-

A few random misc shots.

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.
