  1. [blurb]The update everyone has been waiting to see![/blurb][thumb]thumb_apb.7.png[/thumb]Hello everyone! Welcome to the late night update! The update you've all been waiting for the past few weeks! I'm your host, Coolrock-o! I bring you an exciting new showing of what's been in the works for the past few months. Let me tell you, it wasn't easy getting this all ready for the fans that have been sticking around all these years. Be happy that Pushwall is here, otherwise none of this wouldn't be possible! I know I have a lot of you on the edge wondering what this is all about by now, so let's get to it! Kennel There’s no dog in the next patch! (THIS WAS A JOKE. THERE’S NO PLANS FOR A DOG.) Oh sorry, you're still here? That's great, because I have way more shinny stuff to show off! MiGThe MiG is finally finished, and will be added into the game come the next patch. More details will be released in the developer blog! For now, I have a very nice render to show off the final product. This should be a nice flash back for anyone familiar with the Red Alert cutscenes. Model by @Sir_Phoenixx | Texture by @Fabian| Render by @Dghelneshi With such a flashy new MiG being added into the game, which threatens the Allied Navy, we decided that it was also time to overhaul the naval units. Let's face it, the older models have served their purpose! Gunboat While the best looking of the two ships, we still felt that this ship needed a new look to match the other detail wise. Here's a look at the new Gunboat! Again, more details will be given once the developer blog is released. Model & Texture by Omegavision | Render by @Dghelneshi Let's jump right into our last update for the night! DestroyerThis has to be one of the biggest improvements to a vehicle this game has seen in years. Hands down one of the best looking vehicles currently in the game. This will be your go-to when protecting your fleet from incoming Yaks, MiGs, and Hinds! Model & Texture by Omegavision | Render by @Dghelneshi Along with all this happening, the Soviets also need to see an update also. Currently a WIP, but I wanted to share this with you guys anyways! Missile SubSorry for the picture quality, but it's the best I have for this sneak peak. Hope you guys don't mind! Model by @Kane000 This one won't be ready for a while, but it'll be coming with hopefully a new Attack Sub later this year! With all that said and done, I hope you guys enjoyed this little teaser. I swear I'm forgetting something though Oh that's right! How silly of me! Cruiser Model & Texture by Omegavision | Render by @Dghelneshi IT'S HERE NEXT PATCH! GOODNIGHT EVERYONE!

    I just want to bring up a helpful advice that all land-attack seacrafts (Destroyer/Missile Sub/Gunboat) are actually really good against tanks. For the Destroyer/M.S, not only do they out-range every land unit except the V2/Strela/Redeye (yes they outrange Volk and Tesla Tank), they do damage equivalent to a mammoth tank, and their missiles track so they don't miss. The gunboat is even more effective in terms of damage. It has shorter range but has the DPS of a phase tank. Players should consider using ships to counter land units more going forward.

    Hi all
  4. These would have been useful years ago but tomson extracted the 3D renders you see in PSX RA''s game stats screen spinning around which makes a nice reference for any modeler since it shows the sides and backs of all the buildings and units you never see. though they are only 64x38 some stuff can still be made out though they have a odd perspective. Also some structures like the War Factory have things never seen in-game or cut scenes like having chimneys and Soviet Barracks having a back door but the Allied tent doesn't plus others. psxscorescreen360renders.zip
  5. Hey Guys, this is my second attempt at making a map for A Path Beyond. My first attempt ended sadly when my first computer (JC9000) bit the bucket, that computer ran faithfully from 2002 till a few years ago, oh well. I am getting back on the bike and trying again. This time with a more power computer, and many many back up saves. So like all good maps, I needed some concept art. Anyways, then after drawing inspiration hit me! Allies and Soviets fighting over a gem site. Its a start, but then I realized this map would be a worse sniper disaster since the least liked map of all time of APB Camos Crossing (not made by Raap by the way) Lastly Camos Crossing was so bad it never made it past version .9935 So then I thought... add more space, more rocks, some platforms and this could be doable. Yet I felt the straight line fighting might get boring/tawdry. So back to formula on ways to avoid this. Then Inspiration hit me... why not bend it into a Y-shape. Keep one bridge, and add some lower elevation/ledge spots. Then to prevent more sniper abuse add rocks and a cave. This^ is a more cleaned up version. I figure I should add a cave, and sniper towers, and crates, and have one of the lower ledges a lot lower with a cave entrance. The lime green is the "kill zone" / falling to death area. Anything outside the lime green could be flat trees or just more grass not sure. The above is all I have at the moment to show. I will soon fire up 3ds max 8 again and make this map. But before I do, any thoughts or input into the design? Lastly this will be an on going development so don't expect anything before Christmas.

    For those who have played Siege a decent bit, what do you think of the different roles these two Soviet air units occupy? Do you feel one eclipse the other? Or do they complement each other?
  7. Soviet MiG-29 Update Hello everyone! I'm excited to bring you another update on the MiG. Fabian has been working very hard to detail the MiG to be one of the best looking models we've ever had in Red Alert: A Path Beyond. He still has more to do, but we're too excited to share progress with you! Check it out below! The MiG is currently going to be a hard counter to the Allied Cruiser in the future. The team has been doing a lot of discussion on how to handle and balance it. We think everyone will love it once it's finally in-game. Stay tuned for more exciting changes coming soon! [blurb]Check out this exciting new update on the MiG-29![/blurb]
  8. Hey guys, I figured that it is time for a new thread since this is no longer an "uncategorized" project! This is an upcoming Red Alert: A Path Beyond core gameplay level, and for the first time, this is a mission set on US soil. But as I do not wish to spoil everything in advance, I will keep the remaining information such as the background plot close to myself until release... But here is what I CAN share! The level features a large number of 4096x4096 diffuse textures, created from real photography and edited by myself. All photography was paid for, as I could not have taken them myself given that I live in Europe! The level features a lot of experimental graphical effects, the bulk of which could not have been rendered in older versions of the W3D engine and game tools. The level geometry uses some of the most complex meshes that W3D can presently support. Everything you see is still a work in progress! Here is a video demonstrating some of the environmental effects, such as periodic overhead dust storms, persistent distant dust storms, full screen colour filtering, full screen dust particle animations, and some decrepit old windmill, because reasons! [NOTE: Unfortunately, YouTube murders the image clarity a lot, so the smaller details are hard to spot, but in-game these will be much more visible!] As always, let me know what you think, if you have suggestions, or whatever. Post words!
  9. Red Alert: A Path Beyond Update General Stealth shaders have been re-enabled, and there is now an option to disable them if they are hindering your performance (Extended Options -> Effect Shaders Enabled) Infantry Grenadier No longer available to Allies No longer available without a Barracks Price down (200 -> 160) Mechanic Health down (70 -> 60) Speed up (7 -> 7.5) Rocket Soldiers LAW back to being non-tracking and 100m/s LAW/RPG splash damage up (22.5 -> 25), radius up (6 -> 6.5m) Spy Soviet players will see a Soviet flag when targeting him even when he is inside a vehicle. Shotgunners Inaccuracy down (3 -> 2.5) Vehicles If you kill a vehicle that has the "instant pilot death" property (planes and naval units that aren't beached), you now get credited for killing its pilot and passengers. Chrono Tank Can now be purchased on Tech Level 5 maps for 2400 credits. Acts as a tank destroyer (it stands a better chance than a Medium Tank when facing down a Mammoth Tank) and a building harasser (while its anti-building power is merely on par with a Medium Tank's, shifting lets it evade base defenses and take attack and escape routes that other vehicles cannot) Press Q to open the overhead map, then left-click on a destination to chronoshift there. You can only shift to places that are within 250 metres of you (this range is shown by the white circle around your map icon) and are free of any obstacles, and after shifting you will not be able to shift again for another 30 seconds. APC Points value increased (75 -> 100; now equal to Light Tank) Minelayer Fixed 2 AT mines leaving heavy tanks on 1 HP. MRJ Price down (1200 -> 600) MGG (and variants) Windows no longer have the opposite shader settings that they should, so now they actually reflect like other windows. Phase Tank Price down (2000 -> 1600) Is now visible on radar. Gunboat/Destroyer Now have the same property as subs/LSTs, where being in open waters prevents the pilot from ejecting and causes the pilot to instantly die when the vehicle dies. Bobbing animation now includes them rocking from side to side slightly (1 degree) Gunboat range up (105 -> 110m) LST Radar dish is animated again. Lowered target bone so that flame towers aren't so prone to missing against it. Should no longer explode and instantly kill you if you eject while not fully inside a beaching zone. Attack Sub/Missile Sub When surfaced, they should no longer explode and instantly kill you if you eject while not fully inside a beaching zone. (They'll still kill you if eject when submerged though. So don't.) Attack Sub range up (110 -> 120m) Attack Sub projectile speed down (75 -> 50m) Hind Band-aided the terrible unwrap on the tail rotor. Yak Fixed scaling; it is now half its previous size, and comes to about the same length as a Heavy Tank - which is more accurate to the real-life Yak being about the same length as a T-80. Physical collision box now covers a little more of the wings - though due to the size reduction it still has a smaller collision area than it used to. Health down (300 -> 250) to compensate for the reduced size. Has its old "lenient in-flight hitbox" again to compensate for the reduced size. Homing weapons now home in on the tail of the Yak instead of the nose, so they are better at catching Yaks on the retreat. Build limit up (2 -> 3) since they take up less space on the runway. Maps Reduced random field rocks on various maps Complex Tech Level downgraded; only T3 vehicles are available, but T5 infantry are still available. (Do you really want to see Allies getting Chrono Tanks on a map that's already biased in their favour and would let them do base-to-base warps?) Keep off the Grass Removed the wall near the Soviet OT route/CY. Moved Tesla Coil out to where that wall used to be. Removed Flame Tower from WF side. Moved Refinery Flame Tower closer to the empty field for reasons. Soviet resource field downgraded to ore. (It takes about as long to make a trip as it does on Camos Canyon anyway.) Allied OT now takes a little longer to get ore, to help keep it on more even footing with the reduced Soviet economy. Ridge Racer Ranger physics redone; now heavily based off the standard gameplay Ranger (less flippable), main difference being it has less drag and a less restricted gearbox. Instead of just the original two Allied and Soviet ranger colour schemes, you now have 8 - the 4 standard Ranger camos, 3 of Pyryle's classic colour schemes, and hot pink. Technicians no longer receive damage from falling (a common source of accidental deaths when jumping through the portals due to how fall damage works) or from the finishing-line wall of barrels. Moved the walls backwards at the final turn to make it less obnoxious and less likely to result in pile-ups if multiple people race. Jukebox changed to the old theme song of Fissure: RenAlert Jam. Ridge War Fixed VIS error on roof of Allied storage shack. Seamist Allies now get an additional Light Tank when the 5-minute chinook drop happens. Tesla Coils downgraded to Flame Towers like in older versions of the map. Added environmental sounds (surf+birds) [blurb]EVA: Chrono Tank ready.[/blurb] [thumb]thumb_apb.2.png[/thumb]
  10. Hey guys, I was digging through the server statistics to find some information on what works well in the current gameplay meta and what should be avoided. Turns out, Siege and Hostile Waters are the least played maps (especially HW), the only maps less played are not in the default rotation but admin-triggered special maps. So while I won't be able to do major reworks on these maps, I cannot help but feel the need to ask, given that these were my contributions, what the problems are within the gameplay on these maps today? For Siege I already know that most rounds end via time-out. This is very unpopular but unfortunately it is how the map was designed intentionally. How has the game been since Pushwall added the extra bridges? The data here is hard to read as there is no patch filtering available. Did the extra route make the map more enjoyable and less meat-grindy? Whatever the answer, know that I will not create tug-o-war style maps again given their lack of popularity. And how is Hostile Waters nowadays? I noticed it is barely being played, despite having received more revamps than most maps in the history of APB (YES! I BEAT FOI'S RECORD!?!?). I brought it back from the pre-Beta days based on a LOT of requests when Delta launched, I redesigned it from scratch, and overhauled it twice afterwards. It uses experimental gameplay and graphical effects and all of this creates a very non-standard gameplay - could this be the simple fact that non-standard gameplay just isn't enjoyed enough by most people? Or is it something else? Anyhow, just trying to figure out where I went wrong with these maps. I might be edging towards repeating mistakes if it turns out that most people dislike anything that deviates from the core gameplay, so better for me to take the hint early and avoid doing it a third time. Thing is, my aim is typically to deviate - and perhaps my aim is off. Let me know!

    what would be a good keymapping set for a playstation controller i am using antimicro i bought a logitech that has analoge sticks so that should make it easier the software can select one button to switch from keymap to keymap https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro
  13. Red Alert: A Path Beyond Update General Fixed a bug with tracking weapons that caused the tracking to frequently fail. To further accommodate the tracking fix, a bunch of tracking and formerly-tracking weapons have been amended; see below. If you are equipped with a tracking weapon and aim at a vehicle, you will get a lockon marker showing you what part of the vehicle the rocket will try to home in on. You can no longer access purchase terminals through walls. Scrolling your mousewheel down during gameplay no longer causes the sidebar to be scrolled down 1 unit next time you enter a purchase terminal. This should solve all your quick-buying troubles. Turn-restricted turrets (like the Heavy Tank's) will no longer get "stuck" aiming in a particular direction if you rotate the camera to the other direction through the space that they can't aim at. First-person infantry camera now has 75 FOV instead of 90. Weapon positions may look a little different as a result. First-person hand models of Tanya, Flamethrower and Shock Trooper are now more accurate to the clothes they wear. So flamer/shocky no longer have thief-size gloves and Tanya no longer wears flesh fatigues when using two-handed weapons. M60 now has animated recoil in first person. Fast infantry now properly do the walk animation when holding spacebar. Ranger no longer has side cameras. Ore Trucks have a visible Technician in the driver seat again, and unlike the last time they existed, they don't cause the truck to take extra damage or be damageable by teammates. Fixed smoothing on the Heavy Tank's fuel barrels. Kill icon font should now work properly on all systems. Infantry Grenadier Returned to having armour and 50 health (results in less survivability against fire, electricity, heavy projectiles, machineguns and the Remington, but better survivability against all other small arms and explosive splash damage) Grenades now bounce if they hit anything less than 10 metres away from the user that isn't an enemy unit, similar to how they worked in Beta. This can save you from a lot of accidental self-harm if you're trying to throw grenades from behind cover, though it makes it even more difficult to use grenades for point-blank self-defense (but you should be using the pistol for that anyway). Flamethrower Health up (50 -> 60) Limited-ammo flamethrowers (DM maps etc) have more ammo (5 -> 8 ) Spy/Thief Silenced Beretta damage up (10 -> 12.5) Shotgunners Damage to infantry slightly improved all around (Remington: 20.625 -> 22.5 vs armoured, 27.5 -> 30 vs unarmoured, or +9.1% damage in total. TOZ: 24.375 -> 26.25 vs armoured, 65 -> 70 vs unarmoured, or +7.7% damage in total) Rocket Soldiers M72 LAW now has homing (as it did in Beta). If you don't want to use homing because of cover around you or your target that might get in the way, it still has non-homing missiles on right click. M72 LAW projectile velocity down (100 -> 75m/s) Redeye/Strela now have homing (as they did in earlier versions). Redeye/Strela projectile velocity down (400 -> 150m/s) Redeye/Strela damage down (110 -> 90 Redeye, 80 -> 70 Strela) Redeye/Strela damage multiplier to Yaks raised (0.625 -> 0.75) Redeye/Strela range down (170 -> 160m) No longer have pistols. LAW/RPG splash damage increased (17.5 -> 22.5) Vehicles Naval vessels Rebalanced health, resistances and anti-infantry power. Basically, boats are tougher against most things - mainly in ship vs ship combat - but don't decimate shoreline rocket soldiers quite so hard. Healths: Gunboat health up (300 -> 400) Destroyer health up (450 -> 600) Attack Sub health up (300 -> 400) Missile Sub health up (225 -> 300) LST health up (400 -> 500) Armour multipliers: "Longbow" up (0.8 -> 0.9); 15.6% downgrade (needs 1 more hit to kill all naval units). Damage drops by 75% against submerged subs instead of 87.5%. "Destroyer" (dest+missub) up (0.45 -> 0.5 vs health, 0.225 -> 0.3 vs armour); 10% downgrade. "Artillery" (arty+v2) up (0.9 -> 1 direct, 0 -> 0.5 splash); 2.8% downgrade for V2, 1.8% upgrade for Artillery "AntiAircraft" (redeye+strela) up (0.625 -> 0.8 vs health, 0.5 -> 0.8 vs armour); taking the redeye/strela base damage tweaks into account, this is a 11.6% downgrade for Redeye and 5.5% downgrade for Strela. "Grenade" up (0.4 -> 0.6 vs armour, unchanged vs health); 1.6% downgrade "Fire" (flamer+tower) up (0.5 -> 0.75 vs armour, unchanged vs health); 3.6% downgrade "Hind" up (0.3 -> 0.375); 6.25% downgrade "AntiSub" (depth charge) up vs submerged subs only (1 -> 1.25); 6.25% downgrade "BulletAT" (APC) up (0.5 -> 1 vs health, unchanged vs armour); zero change in effectiveness vs boats, but 60% upgrade vs LSTs "BulletAP" (captain+ranger) up (0.375 -> 0.5 vs health, unchanged vs armour); 16.7% downgrade vs boats, 6.7% upgrade vs LSTs "Electric" and "ElectricTrooper" (shock+TT+coil) up (1 -> 1.25); 6.25% downgrade "C4" down (1.2 -> 1 normally, 1.2 -> 10 vs submerged). Engineer C4 now does 500 damage and thus does not one-shot anything except LSTs or submerged subs; Tanya C4 still one-shots everything except destroyers. Every other weapon, due to not having an adjusted multiplier vs the raised HP of naval units, is effectively downgraded 20% vs LSTs and 25% vs combat vessels. Splash damage vs infantry: Attack Sub down (60 -> 45) Destroyer down (30 -> 25) Missile Sub down (25 -> 20) Destroyer/Missile Sub Projectile velocity down (200 -> 100m/s) No longer has a 25% damage bonus against aircraft (it shouldn't need it now that it can reliably hit them with homing) Range down 10m. Phase Tank Projectile velocity down (100 -> 50m/s) Longbow Projectile velocity down (200 -> 100m/s) Mammoth Tank Tusk missiles projectile velocity down (200 -> 50m/s) Tusk missiles damage down (70 -> 60) Tracking weapons (and targeting of bots/base defenses) now attempt to hit around the top of the main chassis, instead of the very lowest point on the vehicle (which sometimes caused them to hit the ground instead). Suspension should no longer freak out and get you stuck when going off cliffs. Light Tank Max speed down (14 -> 13.5m/s) Ranger Max speed up (17.1 -> 18.7m/s) Turn rate down 20% Takes longer to reach its 3rd gear, so it is slower when accelerating from a full stop or coming out of a tight turn. Chinook Speed up (20 -> 24m/s) Turn rate up 35% Health down (300 -> 225) Yak Rearming rate halved (gains 5 bullets per tick instead of 10) Damage to aircraft up (1.4 -> 1.5) Minimum speed limit is now enforced 2 seconds after cruising mode begins, instead of being enforced instantly. Since acceleration gets enforced before the speed limit, you should no longer have to worry about the possibility of dying during takeoff unless you ACTUALLY crash into something. Minimum speed limit when cruising up from 20m/s to 30m/s. The delayed enforcement of this limit provides FAR more than enough time to get up to speed on an "imperfect" takeoff, so don't worry about that; this stricter speed limit just means you're more likely to die if you crash into the side of a hill/mountain while flying. Death explosion deals 300 AntiAircraft damage within 20 metres. Not a perfect fix for the "Yak crashes harmlessly into Longbow" problem, since it doesn't always explode in midair and doesn't kill Longbows that are in fresh condition (so as to discourage spam suiciding a $800 unit into a $1200 unit), but it's a stopgap until we can get a proper solution. Buildings Airfield Removed the invisible ramp from the end of the runway. This was originally there for the old flight system to give people time to ascend so they don't immediately crash into the ground, but it's been rendered obsolete by the new auto-switching control scheme, and it was also complicating matters for people who tried to land on the end of the runway. Planes parked on the runway when the building is destroyed are no longer able to rearm/repair/sell in mid-flight. Barracks Is no longer weaker on infantry-only maps. Naval factories Naval units now create instantly, which should hopefully prevent boats from getting stuck in each other Bots Ants no longer bunnyhop. Vision cone of human bots is now only 150 degrees (was 270 so they could see mostly behind themselves) Increased weapon inaccuracy. Can't refill in combat anymore. Maps Canyon River Raised terrain around Soviet service depot so you shouldn't get stuck on it anymore. Hostile Waters Gem Silo income down to 2. Neutral Ore Silos now give an instant boost of 100 credits to the first team to capture them, jump-starting your economy a bit so you should still be able to start buying boats at around the same time as before. Tech Level raised to 5 - can now buy Tanya and Volkov. Metro Manhole covers no longer render on top of phase tanks. Fixed a spot where you could jump out of the map. Rock Trap Back in the game! Level geometry is scaled up x2, except for the cave behind the waterfall. Domination points no longer exist. Both teams now have a Barracks and Ore Silo; the Soviet base is where the northeast control point used to be, and the Allied base is where the southwest control point used to be. Like with Fissure, the silo is out of reach of repair tools, but unlike Fissure, it is positioned in such a way that it is easy to defend. The area previously occupied by the southeast control point is now a depot containing very frequently respawning crates containing weapons, C4 (this is normal C4 so it should only be placed on the barracks), max health boosts, radar invisibility, and extra money for your team. These crates will not give character changes, so there are no consequences to snatching up all the crates you can get. Added some extra tunnels to the map; two for each Barracks leading out of the basement, and one in the middle connecting the riverside to the western cliffs. These are more spacious than the tunnels seen on other maps, hopefully providing better infantry combat; other maps with tunnels may receive this treatment in the future. Added "Ammo Clip" (from Renegade) to the jukebox. You can no longer jump off the cliffs overlooking the rivers on the north/west sides of the map. Now supports bots. Siege Terrain lighting levels are more in line with Canyon River's. Shortened range of cannons from 350m to 240m; base-facing cannons can no longer hit the entire base - just the frontal defenses, frontal SD, and a minor main building (Soviet CY/Allied Dome). Added a crag in front of the Allied Barracks to protect it from the Allied-side cannon, so that both base-facing cannons have a roughly equal set of buildings to hit. Moved the pillbox at the Allied side entrance slightly forward. [blurb]Bugfixes abounds in this APB update! Homing weapons, Heavy Tank turrets, boats milling around the Naval Yard, and quick-buyers all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Oh, and there's some balance too. Be sure to check out the full changelog![/blurb] [thumb]thumb_apb.9.png[/thumb]

    I'm getting the error installation failed: It also fails to extract when trying to update W3D Launcher. I've tried the solutions elsewhere on this forum, like deleting the launcher folder in AppData and downloading it again, but to no avail. Can anyone help me out?
  15. Pushwall

    So we already know that Seamist is set up to end the game if the objective building dies. Lunar Paradox has the same thing going on when the WF dies (though I believe it's not been seen yet) because the map also contains a helipad that is invisible and therefore unkillable (which had to be done to make aircraft purchasable without making room for a "real" helipad). I now realise that I could combine this feature with the "trigger an event X number of times" logic used in FoI and Siege to make it so that if a team loses ALL their production buildings (Barracks, War Factory, Helipad, Naval/Sub, and arguably the Missile Silo) on any map (except Seamist/Hostile Waters where one specific building is an objective) then the game ends after a short time (say 3 minutes), giving the win to whichever team killed the production buildings (or in the case of mutually assured destruction, whichever team did it first). How does everyone feel about this? I'd say that while it is possible for situations like that to lead to surprisingly tense kapitan/truck wars like the one on KOTG last Sunday, in almost all cases having no production buildings on one side just leads to a long wait for death, and having no production on EITHER side means both teams usually can't make any headway, and in both cases, leads to people quitting because they're bored of waiting for the next match. And it's certainly much easier than trying to figure out how to make the PP/Dome/Ref/CY extremely vital to a situation where you can only buy sarges and caps. And, you know, means we never have to deal with any Ransiks.

    Hey everyone, I noticed that it's been over a year since the last time someone posted on Reddit. Crazy considering how big the platform is and could bring in a lot of new players by just talking about the game, sharing pictures, and so forth. I decided to make two quick topics on r/gaming and r/commandandconquer. It would be extremely helpful to go upvote and comment on these and get them noticed. Please take some time to do this and get some new faces on the servers!

    hi all, i'm a student and was wondering if i could get the magnificent 3d models from here. i'm doing a project in my school, evolving the favourite game of mine - Red Alert, and wanted to do a homage, which envolves real footage and 3d models. can you help me please? thanks!
  18. Coolrock

    Why does he suck so much now? I know that people said to try it against a tank, but that's why Soviets have a rocket soldier for, right? I can hardly seem to kill infantry at all with him now. Maybe I just remember how good he was on maps like FoI and Fissure. Not exploding on death was kind of a let down too. What're your thoughts?

    I'm curious on what everyone's thoughts are on the current state of the Shock Trooper? I could be wrong, but is the range shorter than I remember? I find it hard to believe that the Rifle Soldier was always able to out range it. Also, I really miss the splash damage. Probably because out of habit, I'm constantly aiming for the legs. Still seems the same when it comes to vehicles. Haven't noticed anything that sticks out. Seem to do roughly the same damage to them that I remember.

    Hey guys, I am hoping that I may be pointed in the right direction on this one. I seem to either be lost, blind or dumb (unsure what one). I am coming back to APB after a very long break from the game and was hoping to get some practice in single player before a US/NA server is set up. Does APB have any AI maps, or am I remembering a feature that never existed in the first place? If it does have AI maps, how do I access them? Thanks for the help everyone, I am excited to come back to this game.

    Last one for tonight! What happened to unit pricing and money in general? I found it so odd getting my first Ore Truck dump after returning all these years, only to get $350. I decided to check the PT, and noticed a lot had changed. Ore Trucks are only $700 now? That seems a bit crazy to me. I see plenty of people buy an Ore Truck right away, and by the time you get your next dump, the game has already entered end game. What I mean is, it feels like there's no early game now, minus the usual infantry rush to the other teams base. This has also changed, as you now start with $350. This leads to people rushing with Rocket Soldiers early on, which also means that you hardly ever see V2/Light Tank rushes anymore. Maybe this is what people prefer now, but I personally don't. I've also noticed that Volkov now has a price of $1800. I'd assume because of his recent weapon changes, but even then it doesn't seem he needs such a high price. For $1800, he shouldn't be killed in a single head shot (which I thought he had protection for at one point). Seems a little steep to me. Tanya also remaining at $1200, while he's at $1800 seems odd. Tanya can destroy an entire building in 30 seconds, while killing most things coming her way (depending on the player), while Volkov has been made to be more of a sniper now (I haven't had much success). I liked the pricing how it was before. What're your thoughts?
  24. https://www.w3dhub.com/ranks/apb/ Thanks to the hard work of moonsense715, rantanplan and the team , our APB Stats page has just been completely overhauled! Sporting a more modern and clean look, our stats page is a sight to see. The overhaul itself was primarily made to better support mobile devices. The menu, located to the left, offers easy and convenient access to the other pages of our statistics. Find your place on the Overall Ladder, check the Rankings to see what it takes to be promoted to Praporshchik, and read over the Achievements page and understand what you actually had done to earn them! On the front page, you can see what is currently happening in the game. The front page offers you detailed information from the current map, the number of players in the server, and which buildings remain operational and which are destroyed. With over a year in production, we expect everything to be in order. If you do find bugs or issues, please report them to our bug tracker and moonsense715 will be happy to look at it! Now take your time and look around on the Stats page. Revel in your K/D, see how you stack up against the others on the rankings, manage your clan, or just be in awe of how amazing it all looks!

  25. Good Evening all. Having played for a while I have accrued some sounds from the years that I game with and would love to share it with everyone. Some of the sounds I didn't like and replaced it as such and others I thought could use a little bit of a change or some spice. I hope you all enjoy, add some new flavor to your game and play on!
