Mod Leader: RequieM
Project Reality is a modification for the Battlefield 2 engine. The developer's aims are to rework the original game engine developed by Digital Illusions of Sweden (Dice) to recreate a realistic combat environment. This includes adjusting the game's various elements that include physics, visual effects and gameplay. Along with changes to how the game handles, the PR team intends to include additional factions such as the British Military, and add to or alter existing factions so that they resemble real life military elements found within their respective environments.
The name 'Project Reality' is not solely for the purpose of throwing around a catchy title. Project Reality's team has a group of dedicated individuals, several of whom have backgrounds in armed services. Whose sole task it is to provide researched findings and statistical information to the developers tasked with creating the mod itself. If you are looking for a fact based FPS shooter from the perspective of a Soldier, Project Reality will be there to cater to those needs.
Inspiration for this modification has come from interviews BF2 Developers have participated in, to quote:
“Battlefield is all about fun, action-oriented gameplay. We'll leave the truly realistic experiences to the mod teams who thrive on that type of action.” (DICE)
“Battlefield will always be first about fun and secondly about realism. Realism implies complexity.” (Sean Decker)
The mod is now going through its 3rd installment, Project Reality Mini-Mod 0.3. The Mini-Mod series began as a platform to experient certain realism changes and analzye their gameplay impact, more importantly though it has become a product that is frequently released in order to provide the community with something to play.
The goal at the moment is to develop and release PR 1.0, an evolution up from the PRMM series where we will incorporate a complete British faction, including new Soliders, Weapons, Vehicles and so forth.
