I have to start by saying this is a great mod far before its time

I reinstalled this after realizing I never played it all the way through. I am starting to remember why ...

Primary cause ... a oft encountered frustration from back in the good ol days of JA 1. The impenetrable "Iron Shrub"

The Iron Shrub stymies your best marksmen, shots bouncing off it sounding like they struck a tank. All the while that red shirt Stands behind it mowing your squad to pieces ... apparently Mercs are allergic to Iron shrubs and thus cannot take cover behind them. The Iron Shrub also likes to bounce grenades back into your face. Occasionally they do this to Red Shirts but not nearly as often as they do to Mercs. My team has started leaving grenades where they lie.

Is there something about JA 1.13 that "fixed" the Iron Shrub or do I just run into alot in the vegetation rich jungles? I want so bad to just play through it but I can't.

Secondary - pea shooters . It was with a tearful eye I discarded a pile of the near legendary Mosin Nagants into a trash heap. Maybe it was souly the fault of that insane VC armourer that coverted them to shoot AK rounds. It didn't seem such a bad idea, but it takes 10 rounds to kill a VC. Hmmm maybe they only shoot VC friendly smart rounds? Those guys ARE clever.

Despite my whining hats off to Becoming X for developing such a cool mod full of vitnam era flavor. I just wish I could finish it. I wish I knew anything at all about coding so I could try to make a 1.13 variant (or any mod for that matter ) Sad

Never played it .... yet...but certainly 1.13 hasn't any place in SOG , it was made waaaay before it came out.
Maybe Will can help out if he sees this post .

Hi Lockie,

Oh I think I was just musing that the ol Iron Shrub effect doesn't seem to pop up in 1.13 mods and wondering if anyone had a concrete reason for it. Not a big deal. I think I will try out Legion. I haven't played that mod either.
