It is a LUA test/ alpha version to see how well the new coding language handles lots of units at the same time.
A few new additions where made as well like when running that dust clouds appear where the man has run.
New blood splatter and exit-wound mist too.
I like the smooth camera feeling. Dust clouds also give a nice indicator that this Ranger is in fact pretty noisy.
Still, there is a problem with ranger searching EKIA – you seem to have trouble giving him the command to do so. I think that change of coding language could be an opportunity to overhaul not only the mechanics but also the controls, so it would be more intuitive and capable.
Also, a standalone Recon version (not browser/online) could be the solution to disappearing profiles. Maybe it would be also possible to carry profiles with you (like on pendrive or in a cloud), so you can keep going with different devices.
Great to hear that some work is still in progress, as Recon is also my favourite M&B.
