Eve of Destruction - Redux

Our first map-selection for the demo was not very usefull and we've got a lot of suggestions for improvements.

Almost all these suggestions could be implemented and the changes are really extensive.
A significantly improved accuracy, a simpler weapon selection and display of ammunition/medicine boxes and repair possibilities for vehicles facilitate the operation. Take a look at the changelog below for detailed information.

Cot Moc

The new demo includes the new map Cot Moc wich has now much more vehicles.
Game modes are 'Tankbattle' and 'Combat' for varied virtual battles.

Will you be rewriting or improving some of the coding to make the game performance better? With first demo the game was unplayable with bots.

The game is updated daily and also the AI coding gets improved step by step.
But if it's unplayable like you said it may depend on a really poor hardware.
We've tested with lots of machines (some 6 years and older) and of course you need a good graphics card, CPU and enough RAM.

A game with so much statics and vegetation, huge terrain and endless number of vehicles will never run on a lower class PC.

The game was coded on a 7 years old mid class PC (i5-3570, GTX660-2048, 16GB RAM) and is running very fine without lag or performance problems.

So it can be a bottle neck, i.e. the GPU or CPU or a lot of applications running in the background.
Send me your specs and maybe I can help you.
