Seal Team

We need a modern remake of SEAL Team!


SEAL Team is a Vietnam War video game which was released by Electronic Arts for MS-DOS in 1993. It was the first ever tactical shooter game. The game uses 3D vector and bitmap graphics of the modified LHX: Attack Chopper game engine to recreate 80 historical operations of the four-man US Navy SEAL teams in the Mekong Delta area of Vietnam. The game featured an unprecedented amount of realism and is referred to as "tactical combat simulation" by IGN.

You were able to play a Seal team member through various years of the war, with equipment and weapons evolving over the years (for example, some weapons like the M16 weren't available in the early years of the war).

It featured a realistic damage model, far ahead of its time. Stray bullets could damage individual pieces of equipment, leading to scenarios like being pinned down in a riverbed with your squad uninjured but your radio trashed, preventing you from calling in air support (a situation I once found myself in, still imprinted into my brain 30 years later).

This is a game that is in desperate need of a modern remake.

      This took me like 20 minutes to figure out how to publish, cortex is super buggy, and the error messages aren’t informative.

      TMWTB is there a place we can submit bugs to? Like an email address that feeds into your ticket tracker or something?

        Maybe make a Cortex article about it?

      Oh. You mentioned the Flight Sim Engine.
      Also it had ballistic arcs and tracer rounds (at accurate intervals) and random patrols.
      I was once saved during a fierce nighttime firefight where we were being pushed back to the river, and a PT Boat patrolling the OTHER bank heard/saw the action, did a U-Turn and came back up our bank lending the fire support we so sorely needed.

        It was so far ahead of its tome tat nothing has managed to eclipse it, yet. So much crazy unpredictable shit can happen when the physics are modeled like that.
