Hello all. To cut straight to the chase we have a nice big showcase update this month with a little bit of something from everyone on the team (All 5 of us, lol.) To kick things off we have an excellent new map to showcase from DasRoach called "Canyons." This is a 1024x4 sized map which for those not in the know is an absolutely huge size. Made primarily for dogfighting and tank wars, canyons has plenty of action on the ground, in the skies and amongst the canyons. Also on the map front we have a beautiful rework of an old classic called "Daqing Dawn." Clivewil has added a new and lush atmosphere to the familiar favourite to simulate the early morning hours over Daqing Oilfields.
On the Vehicle front we have 2 new showcases in the form of the F5 Tiger II and the new Notar Littlebird Transport variant. Lastly in our weapons cabinet we have the Beretta, Sig552, AK5, 2 minigun variants for heavy support firepower, The TPG-1 sniper rifle, GHS-18 pistol and Scar L with grenade launcher. On the subject of the miniguns, we have to agree that these weapons are one of the most fun things we've put in the mod. They are however balanced in a few cunning ways to stop the support class dominating. You'll find a quick overheat penalty coupled with high recoil help keep things in check. On top of this you can only be accurate while standing, so to use this beast you have to give up your cover and expect to hit absolutely nothing from prone.
Well thats about it from the team. We won't leave you with a release date, but we will tell you that we're starting to wrap up final content with an internal date set for testing. We can't wait to get AIX out to you all. And now for the screens!
