My helmet? I wont take that off and risk a bullet in my head. The boat floor will have to just cope with it.

On the water issue though I find it strange that RO can't have decent looking water, I remember BiA had nice looking water and that was using the same engine wasn't it?

I asked the same question awhile ago at the Gearbox BiA forum about how they did their water surfaces. Found out from one of the developers that they heavily modded the Unreal Engine for a variety of effects they created for the game. Same goes for the effect weather has on foliage in the game...it's just a little more than using texpanners or oscillators. although in RO this can work nicely as I found out myself. But generally speaking, BiA's goodies are all hard coded.

I am curious about the loading animation for the M1. I remember how easy it was to load a clip (and how you had to do it right or end up with M1 thumb, owwww). Does the M1 load faster than the bolts?

Since the loading is done at waist height is there a change in perspective?

the reload animation for the garand will be done in normal view...i.e. you wont necessarily have a change of perspective however yes the reload times will be accurate.

How far is the mod going to reach?
Is this a march to berlin also and it would be sweet to have a last stand battle @ berkenstag at the eagles nest. Yeah I know its not real but would be a blast.

I dont thing they got mortors on the beach, from the allies point of view until the beach was in advancing forces control. For the Axis oh hell yeah they had mortors raining down.
