For those of you who have played the old version of Project Ozone, you will be glad to know that the mod has been completely overhauled and now is in its first version for a fresh new way forward. Here, you can experience what it is like to play a more realistic and fully modelled Ozone game. Here’s a quick rundown of what the new changes have to offer.
The first big difference in the new version of Project Ozone 3 is the level of detail that has been added to the game. Previously, the game had been very empty with just a few choices to make about your character and a few places to explore. The scenery consisted of some forests and factories but the island itself was just one big empty space. The new version has taken this to the next level by delivering a near complete replica of the island. There are over 20 brand new shops, buildings, monuments and of course, the airport, which makes the game look as though it has actually taken place in the real world.
It is now possible to fly the military helicopters in the game. Previously only the police and fire-fighting helicopters could be flown. This includes both the armed forces and the special operations forces. You can choose to play either as an army soldier or a marine officer and undertake missions that range from capturing airports or bases to taking out targets of high value. You can also get to pilot jets such as the EA-14 Blackbird or the AC-47 gunship. These two types of planes can be used in any scenario of the game and are also available for civilian aircraft.
Project Ozone also gives players the opportunity to build their own flying craft. With the help of a simple construction kit you can build a speedy, strong and highly manoeuvrable helicopter which you can then fly in the game. This allows you to experience all the features of a real helicopter such as the lifting power, agility, speed and handling. You can also choose to have increased control or increased speed. The mod also introduces a new mission making it more exciting and adding a whole new dimension to the game.
For example, you can now rescue survivors being held prisoner by terrorists and then return them to the safe zone. You can also go for a solo mission and soar through the sky in your personal helicopter. If you are a military buff, you can enjoy a close combat encounter and shoot down incoming missiles. There is a new military chopper available called the Black Cat and its primary weapon is a laser which does extra damage on enemy helicopters.
The mod also introduces new aircraft and these include the F-5 Tiger, the EA-6 Hornet, the CH-3 Cougar and the EA-3 Tracker. These are all armed with guns and come with new features including fully functional cockpits and firing systems. They are also designed according to the rules of the game and if you lose your plane during the game, you will be able to repair it on the downed plane and fly it again. Other aircraft in the game include the H-uge, the Blackbird, the P-duct and the Hawker Hunter.
