Videogames featuring the AFP
« on: June 03, 2019, 02:50:57 AM »
By the way, are there videogames or game modifications that feature the Armed Forces of the Philippines as a playable character/faction? I heard there was this game mod for a game featuring the AFP but I cannot find it.

there's this game called "Fleet Command" released around 1999

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleet_Command

Fleet Command, previously labelled as Jane's Fleet Command, is a real-time tactics naval warfare simulation computer game released in May 1999.[1] It was developed by Sonalysts Inc. and published by Electronic Arts (EA). The game licensed parts of Jane's Information Group's military information database, which was used as an in-game "Jane's Library", reference material that the player could refer to while in-game. Jane's also licensed to EA the "Jane's" name and the "Jane's Combat Simulations" logo, and the game was marketed under the "Jane's" name, much like the previous "Jane's Fighters Anthology", also published by Electronic Arts.

it can be a single player or multi-player.
released for PC, 1 CD/DVD for install and update
later on it can be downloaded on "STEAM" website

upon install, there was only one unit that belonged to the Philippine Navy, that was the Bacolod Class
later on there was a software where you can modify/add/subtract units to the game,
some die hard players who have the a 3D software that can create/modify the 3D files of the game made and added units to it (some boats that was not on the initial list of ships that can be played)

you can also create scenarios, there are already some scenarios included but you can also modify those

it is mostly about naval tactics but you can also add air force units and army ground units in it but are limited, especially the ground units

i still play the game sometimes,
my copy of the game already have the Del Pilar Class, Rizal Class, Jacinto Class (still have to modify the weapons and sensors a bit more),  Tarlac class and the Malvar Class. also have the F-5's, F-8s, OV-10 and T-28s, UH-1, still trying look for the S-211s in it

7,107 Islands
One Maritime Nation
One Navy

There are a lot of Game mod for Command & Conquer/Westwood Red Alert 2, Command & Conquer Generals, and Arma featuring Philippines.  This are made by enthusiast, most of it are still in Beta and free to download...

But if like to play first-person shooter video game, you can try Medal of Honor: Warfighter

Plot

The game opens at an undisclosed ship dock in Karachi, Pakistan. Task Force Mako is the newly designated team consisting of the previously known U.S. Navy SEALs of "Mother", "Voodoo", and Tom "Preacher" Walker, who are assigned by DEVGRU to sabotage a black market arms deal involving an Al-Qaeda jihad movement. They successfully plant a charge on the truck that they intend to destroy. When they detonate the charge, a secondary explosion destroys the shipping docks and sinks a cargo ship, forcing the operatives to fight through the chaos and flee. They are later debriefed by their mission handler Dusty, a U.S. Army Delta Force operative from the previous game. With satellite video taken, the entire team finds out that the docks and the cargo ship was carrying PETN.

The SEALs determine that the shipment was due for the Philippines after a car chase through the streets of Karachi, and quickly follow the lead to Isabela City. During the height of a typhoon-induced flood, members of the Abu Sayyaf Group kidnap several hostages for ransom. Mako, working with the Philippine Army SOCOM (Task Force Tiger) forces, led by General Barrera, attempts to identify the ringleaders and successfully recognize Marwan al-Khalifa conferring with another 'unknown' terrorist head. At that moment, they witness the other 'unknown' leader shooting one of their own men.

Preacher requests permission from Barrera to inquire an ID check on the other leader as well as taking down Khalifa, but is refused. At that same time, Barrera orders his own sniper specialist and team leader, "Tiger 12" to take out Khalifa and deploys the NAVSOG to begin the hostage rescue. Just as the operation begins, the terrorists and hostages hastily escape. Mother and Preacher join up with Tiger 12 and the rest of the special forces, tracking the hostages and fighting their way to the capitol building. After a failed door breach resulting in some casualties, Barrera orders Tiger 12 and the others to withdraw, intending to negotiate with the terrorists. Tiger 12 defies the general's orders and assists the SEALs in liberating the hostages. During the extraction, there are three more casualties, including Tiger 12. Links with the Abu Sayyaf, the PETN, and a man known as "the Cleric" are then exposed. The aftermath of Mako's operation results in Mother and Preacher receiving pending honorable discharges from the Navy, while Voodoo is appointed leader for Mako, and operative "Stump" serving alongside him.

At this point, Mako has their manpower replaced by Dingo and Tick. The four remaining operatives were assigned with Task Force Grizzly to Mogadishu, curtailing piracy in the area. Shortly after the operation, Mako is assigned to the USS Bainbridge, where a stand off takes place with Somali pirates and the U.S Navy involving the hostage situation with a U.S. captain just off the Somali coast.

Thanks for the help though.

I also heard there was a Command and Conquer Generals mod that features the Philippines.

I created a companion thread for this discussion on the forum's FB extension. Interesting responses

What was a good discussion. By the way, there are software out there to mod or create indie-style games, but few are willing to tackle the AFP.
