Update 1.71 out inculding community box #3

Hey Runners,

in update 1.71 we continued improving the game and added some new content which will please especially the online invasion players, but we of course also have goodies for the campaign!
For those who have the Pacific DLC, you should know the final map of the campaign, “Operation Downfall”. We decided to convert it to be added to the vanilla online invasion map rotation.
There has been several changes to better match the vanilla experience. The challenge is tough and we tested it with a couple of beta testers the last couple of days and we loved it! :)
We also added a “reverse” version of the assault map “Rattlesnake Crescent” where you start at the Mosque without any combat vehicle while the enemy is constantly pushing with mass of vehicles – the freshly implemented Radar Tank being one of them!

In this update, we also added a special lonewolf sniper. He is equipped with a ghillie suit and a suppressed sniper rifle and tends to go behind enemy lines taking out enemies without them to notice. If an hostile enemy unit comes too close, he will crouch and retreat to the closest cover in hopes of not being detected.
At least they don’t have any body armor under their ghillie suit and are therefore relatively easy to take out unless they notice you first! Sometimes, when they feel that stealth isn’t helping as they would hope for, they might call Elite reinforcement, which is a new radio call, of course also usable for the player!
It paradrops 4 special units, 3 armored paratroopers with unique SMGs and an elite medic which can heal indefinitely (and fast) while having a very strong armored vest! It tries to stay back from the fights focusing on its duty but has a taser as primary weapon in case.

The first 2 community box projects were a great success! This is why we launched a new modding contest to bring even more community creations into the game.
This time we focused more on useful and realistic items rather than goofy stuff. It’s fine to run in a banana costume but it won’t always help you during war :)
We at Osumia Games were especially pleased with the fact that some scripting efforts have been done to extend the boundaries of the average modding work that has been done so far for previous community boxes, nice!
This goes from repair crane vehicles that can (over)-repair vehicles to GPS laptops to locate strategic enemy locations on the map. We even have a repair kit to fix your broken vests but of course we also have some new and unique weapons, neat!
Here again, there has been more stuff submitted than what we expected, so we had to make a cut at some point, but those ideas aren’t buried and rather get a new chance for the next Community Box!

Don’t forget to join our RWR community on Discord and leave us a review on Steam if you like the game, it always motivates us a lot!
See you on the battlefield!
