Fans of Quake III mods such as Urban Terror will probably be interested in an upcoming mod in the same vein. Enitled TrueCombat, it's described as a realism-based mod, this time with an even heavier emphasis on the realism factor, to the point of referring to itself as a "superreal conversion". Featuring a host of real world weapons and player models, the upcoming version beta 1.0 promises the following features:

  • Tactical mode wherein you aim using the iron sights of the actual gun; read: no crosshairs.
  • Two teams, different mission objectives, emphasising realistic team tactics.
  • Scriptable mission objectives in maps.
  • The ability for different weapons to penetrate different objects with varying degrees of success.
  • Realistic sounds for both enviroment and player.
  • The addition of C4 and smoke grenades to your arsenal.
  • New attachment system for weapon upgrades (scopes, silencers, laser sights, etc.).
  • Brand spankin' new models for the weapons and player.
  • A host of new animations for weapon reloads, player movement, etc.
  • Realistic lens flares, glare, and flash blend effects.
  • Voice commands for quick communication with teammates.
  • The choice between 4 different huds, including the old-school flavor from previous builds.
Beta 1.0 is currently scheduled to see release this Friday, June 13th.
