== A.C.E. Advanced Combat Environment ==
= Info =
Advanced Combat Environment 2 (ACE2) is a full conversion modification for Armed Assault 2.
Our primary mission is to create a wide variety of real world weapons, vehicles, equipment, and tactics so that those playing the ACE2 modification will be able to better simulate combined arms combat on a modern battlefield. ACE2 is designed from the bottom up with the goal of encouraging its users to employ real world tactics and strategy (fighting as a team) in order to accomplish realistic military objectives. We strive to create hyper-realism without losing sight that the mod must be playable by the “advanced” user. Our focus is not only on creating features and models which highlight realism but also on supporting the creation of realistic missions in which one may experience the full spectrum of virtual combat.
= Get involved =
We are currently looking for skilled:
* Coder GUI
* Texture Artists
* Modellers
* Island Makers
New challenges and opportunities lie ahead - share your ideas and take the chance to realize them.
The development of ACE2 will continue in the future and we are looking for decent and dedicated people!
Based on a good internal development environment (Git, ftp, rsync, Skype, forums) everyone contributes to the development as far as one's own available time, motivation, and skills in an organized and coordinated process.
Yet we are not solely looking for core developers - anyone's help is appreciated.
Take the opportunity and join the ranks

So these are just suggestions - we love to hear your ideas how to contribute!
