This week, I've got a rather significant update for you guys, including some big progress in every department. I've brought along a good schwack of screenshots from our never-before-seen maps Vierville and Le Bocage. We've also added a few new members to the team, continued to work on new models, inserted more ground-breaking coding, started work on the new list of voice commands, completed more music and in-game sounds, as well as continued our quest for world domination... Err, I mean continued our quest to make one hell of a game!
I'll start with the eye candy portion of the update, as it is usually the most popular. Here are 13 of the first publicly seen screenshots from our maps Vierville and Le Bocage.
The first 6 images come from the map Vierville, which is being created by Th0rr and Disgruntled Goat.

We have also have hired unique1 as a coder, who has already started work on some secret projects that I'd love to tell you about, but simply can't just yet.
Lastly, we have our newest addition with the talented mapper (or "level designer" as he likes to be called) BXpress from Germany. He is best known for working on the "Bridge of Remagen" map, which can be found here.
Our modelling department worked hard at getting the final small arms models ready for the first release. With these models out of the way, most of them have moved on to smaller models such as lightbulbs, chairs, and other miscellaneous items. Guga-Nought, however, has been hard at work completing some rather large models including the Flak-88, Kubelwagen, German Half-track, the three of which can be viewed below. To top all these excellent larger models off Guga-Nought, and green1152 have completed the M1 Carbine model which nearly completes our list of small arms for the first release of The Price of Peace. Skinning is ongoing.
Our sound department is slaving away as usual with roland still pumping out menu and PoP Theme music while Sonic and his crew have completed 80% of the Higgins Boat (LCVP) audio package. They have also finished the audio for the M3A1 (Grease Gun), G-43, and the MG34. On top of all this, they have a growing array of whizzby and ricochet sounds.
I know you guys are itching for a release, and quite frankly the whole PoP team is as well. We're pushing forward faster than ever to get that first release out the door, but still have little ways to go. More exciting progress to come in the near future, and it just might include information on some of our secret projects.
