About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

by Judy on July 24, 2004 @ 1:14 p.m. PDT

Battlefield: Pirates is a mod for EA's Battlefield 1942. Shortly after the previous beta 3, the BFP team has released an updated v3.1 (as well as a smaller update patch) fixing various issues with the latest version, several game balancing tweaks, as well as adding yet another new map (BFP_CutThroat_Creek).

  • No more Fileplanet files bundled: no arcade or other files in this one, just a straight installer directly from us.
  • SkullClan Carpenter now has StoneAxes like he should instead of the PegLeg Throwing Knives.
  • Fire delay for both the StoneAxes and Throwing Knives now reduced slightly. Seems there is a problem with the netcode where the delay could end up being so long that you could kill your oponent before you ever saw the knife.
  • Shark Frenzies now do 50% more damage. They've sharpened their teeth and are now hungrier than ever.
  • And the one major bug: In Beta3, you could actually sink a Galleon by slicing an ammo keg about 30 times with your cutlass! Yaar! That thar exploit be no more!

Map Changes/fixes:

Tides Of Blood:
-Sloops spawns fixed to prevent beaching.
-Center now contains dinghys instead of additional sloops. Capture the center to allow your side the ability to use the dinghys to sneak up on enemy-held islands. (The docks now also show up correctly)
-Various other small tweeks to the terrain and objects.

-Fixed a terrain exploit.
-Pruned some objects from the city to reduce rendering lag on some machines.

Domes of Doom:
-No more CTF wackiness while playing a Conquest game.
-Added just a few more cottages to provide a tiny bit more protection from those pesky bombs.

Scurvy Cove:
-Wall hitpoints reduced by 25%. Blasting the walls should be an intregral part of gameplay, not an afterthought.

Mr Coconuts Island Getaway:
-SkullClan now drops kits, as was originally intended. PegLegs can now steal those kits in order to get better weapons. (the kits were actually not dropping for the red assault class on any map. It was just most noticable here.)

Mysterious Mountain:
-Various small fixes/tweeks/improvements.

New map!
This is mainly an "artillery" map with GrenadeMortars and 8pdrs a-plenty. This map was by Bunnysnot, who also created BFP_Shiver_Me_Timbers and parts of BFP_Mysterious_Mountain and should be especially good for things like clan matches. This brings our total of custom maps up to 20, for those of you counting.
