DC Extended DC 0.7 mods

Version 0.7.1L

Last updated : 16/2/2004 @ 21:45 EST


DC_Extended is an extension of Desert Combat for Battlefield 1942. It's purpose is to add certain weapons that I feel would make the game more fun to play, modify existing weapons to compensate for minor annoyances and to modify certain official maps to take advantage of the new weapons.

The idea is that using existing models and program code from Desert Combat you can tweak things here and there to make it a little more fun to play.

DC_Extended also provides the ability to use the modified vehicles and standard vehicles on the same map at the same time. Only certain maps will have this ability when all the map changes are complete.

Since the release of DC 0.39k, DC_Extended also addresses a lot of balance issues that were introduced with 0.39k. The damage system for most weapons has been overhauled to be more fun to play with.


These are the simple highlights of what DC_Extended adds to Desert Combat

- Player guided SCUD missile
- SAM sites
- Mobile SAM truck
- M.O.A.B.
- Parachuting Desert Patrol Vehicles
- More guns on Blackhawk
- Ural ammo supply truck. Also lays minefields.
- Destroyer launches guided Tomahawks and gets a helipad with a Seahawk
- Seahawk has defensive flares and drops guided torpedoes
- Phalanx guns on ships
- Ural tanker "suicide" bomb
- Artillery modifications to prevent "stealing" by other players
- Sub fires Guided Tomahawk and Guided Torpedoes and carries Navy seals
And many more...
