    We're Still Alive!

    My exams were good, thanks :) Anyhow, I'm writing AI at the moment, and fixing the bridges in the game. The birdges will probably be the last graphical work, along with some bugs, I'll do, since I want to have the Mod released now. Once Uni starts again I will probably fade away from the modding scene once more, so expect a full explenation of how and when the release will go about by the end of the month.

    Hey, I apologise for the very sparse updates, but the past few months have been pretty intense for me and I do prioritise my exams at university higher than Blitzkrieg. I'm done the 17th of June though, so expect something to happen around then.

    I've finished the damaged frames for the bridges - there're a few bugs, but they are easy to fix (Shadows etc.). Also the Churchill is visible, it has recieved an overhaul by Mig eater. Anyhow, have a look...

    Muslims Burn Norwegian Flag Over a cartoon

    Well, there have been around six announced bomb threats against Jyllands-Posten’s offices - I live like a mile from them, of all places - but they have all been phoney, and I'm sure there's been many more they haven't taken seriously. Security in Denmark is the same as always, according to PET (Politiets Efterretnings Tjeneste - Denmark's FBI/CIA) there is currently no reason to be on alert or tighten the security. Seeing Denmark in a game would be new. :D - In this context it would be, as pinbag said, bad taste. We have some very potent special forces (Combat Divers) highly praised by the American forces in Iraq, basically they go through the same training as the Navy Seals. Furthermore they also practice on Greenland, its Danish after all. Frømandskorpset - The official Danish site, it's in Danish though, the link below is probably more useful. Pictures They are heavily geared towards being able to be deployed using submarines and carry out missions underwater.

    Muslims Burn Norwegian Flag Over a cartoon

    It's not a government institution, and while he's the official person of their group it's not possible to remove him from "office," as you say, since it would be to intervene in a private operation. Essentially that would be just as bad as censoring a newspaper in some sense. At the moment, the Danish Peoples Party - as some of you might know from the news - are looking into the possibility of accusing the imam of activities which is hurting the country in time of crisis. Essentially treason, but the last politician, also of the peoples party, who used that word actually got a court case on her neck, filed by the Islamic Society in Denmark ironically - this happened a few weeks ago, when they travelled around the Middle-east. There's a lot of mud throwing going on here at the moment, so I'm quite curios to see how everything will be perceived in a few months and how this turns out. The whole thing seems to intensify by the day.

    Muslims Burn Norwegian Flag Over a cartoon

    Funny you mention it, there's a debate about the very thing at the moment. The problem is that many of the Imams have Danish citizenship - I don't know if Abu Laban has it, but he has been here for years so he might.

    Muslims Burn Norwegian Flag Over a cartoon

    We don't hear much other than about this incident in Denmark, gets pretty tedious - these pictures were published in October last year! Anyhow, it's first after the Islamic Society went to the middle-east to get the attention of various governments and religious leaders that it has exploded into this mess. The problem is that it has spawned a lot of rumours, for instance people wrongly believe that the Koran have been burned in large stacks in Copenhagen and that we're prosecuting the Muslims. It's ridiculous. However, I do understand the concerns of the Muslims, but they do have to accept that in the secular societies of the West religion is a private matter and freedom of speech comes before religious taboos. It is interesting though, that people of societies where they have limited freedom of speech demonstrates against just that, freedom. Not to mention that in countries like Palestine, where we’re sending millions of dollars in aid, they are boycotting our products. In various interviews it has been expressed by Muslims that the only thing which can ever settle this is if the newspaper - Jyllands Posten - is punished by the Danish state for having brought these pictures and the nation sends a sincere apology to Muslims around the world; even an editor of a newspaper in Saudi Arabia felt this way. Our cultures lie very far apart, and we’ve grown to recognise the right to say just about anything and we don’t take offence by political nor religious satire, since it’s mostly used in newspapers to prove or stress a point. The countries of the middle-east and Pakistan don't seem to comprehend the lengths to which freedom of speech extends in the West. If the Danish government was to apologies it would be to accept that there are limits - thus regulations of the press - to the freedom of expressing ourselves. People themselves, and Jyllands-Posten for that matter, should have the moral conscience not to bring such pictures, as they are very offending to certain audiences, but it is a moral obligation people themselves have towards others and not something which should be forced upon them by any state or institution. Going back to the Islamic Society of Denmark, the leading Imam, Ahmad Abu Laban, went on Danish television last night proclaiming that he would now try to commute to the Islamic world that Denmark had had no bad intensions and to settle the uprisings. However, it turned out that he later in an interview with Al Jazeera (Arabian TV-station) said the exact opposite and welcomed the support of the Muslim world. This is in my opinion an example that certain Imams have an interest in intensifying this incident to prevent integration - Ahmad Abu Laban have lived in Denmark for several years and all interviews he does for Danish television are still in English, he of all should try to integrate himself. It comes down to Voltaire; “I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.”

    I've been working on the damaged versions of the Bridge, and you can see how far I've gotten so far below. Along with the bridges you'll notice the new M16 and the modified Valentine Mig did for us. They look very nice, thank you Mig!

    Mig, if you would like to update some of our voxels, then you're more than welcome - let's talk over MSN though, makes it easier. :) Now, more civilian structures - I would love to add more civilian structures, but it takes a lot of time and I think it' more important to finish the more important things first.

    We never used a green Sd.Kfz 251 as a M16. The voxel in the screenshot below is the M16 we've always been using - it has been made bigger by Major Gilbear though. Mig, when are you gonna show us some new stuff from D-Day?

    I've updated the roads again, this is a texture I did myself, it seemed darker when i did it. It's a little light as of now, but I guess it's all right, what do you think?
  14. [DK]PHIL

    We're Still Alive!

    I updated the road, is this a no or a go? Personally I think it turned out fairly well, and I agree the old texture was quite overwhelming. Now I also find it easier to see the detail on the units, infantry especially. *Update: And here's one to show how it stands in contrast with the terrain, and what is actual dirt.

    Well, the latting issue was sloppy work in FA2. The problems with the cliff and bridge pieces have, however, been taken care of.
