History

Double-Cross Studios was founded by me, Herr Sturmfuehrer back in 2015 as a forum to unite all contributors and members that use moddb, however, the project at its core started back in late 2008 on a totally different foundation.

I originally set out to create a lowly skin pack for the niche fan favourite RTS, Men of War. This original idea rapidly escalated to encompass a complete human soldier model pack as my skills and abilities broadened allowing me to fulfill my aspirations to create a somewhat realistic mod for Men of war.

Before I knew it however what started out as a skin pack, slowly morphed into its owned full fledged modification. The name changed many times, eventually settling on Totaler Krieg 1939-45 which was chosen to represent the mods ethos of a German orientated take on WW2, which was in essence a total war waged by Germany from 1943 onwards. I had grand ambitions to create a mod which followed the German war machine from the very first battles to the final curtain call in Berlin 1945. This, I soon realised was overly ambitious, however I eventually decided to create a good enough foundation, based solely on realistic values, introduces new features, overhauling all human models, vehicle sounds, weapon sounds, ambience, entourage models, interface and Ui changes to create a seemingly totally different gaming experience to that of the base game. I ultimately hope that once completed, Totaler Krieg will be in such a finalized state that once released to the public, the community as one can add in the content such as maps, missions and campaigns that I as the sole developer was unable to finish.

In addition to the core coding, models and image assets created for Totaler Krieg, I have also dabbled in creating game music for the modification and have spent some personal funds developing models and commissioning artwork assets such as logos to watermark and promote Totaler Krieg.

Hi all!
I just wanted to use this space to formally thank Heer_Sturmfuhrer for inviting me to the group!
A little about my history with the mod, simply put, I remember the original thread on the DMS forums when it was only intended to be a skin-pack, and I remember loving those skins as they were, let alone what Sturm went on to do here!
I enjoy mapping, although most of my maps are incomplete for one reason or another, but there are many I've started that are well researched to the IRL battlefields such as the Kall trail and Crucifix Hill. As for what I do for the mod? Absolutely nothing tangible, I've suggested some things for the mod to Sturm prior, some are outlandish, some are already done, most are in between I'm sure. Besides that Im here as a long-time supporter!
Also, I recognize a lot of the names in here from around the community and you guys all do great work, I'm positive that this mod will be played as much as VMoW:AS/AS2 when it comes out! Keep up the great work you guys!

Currently making some progress on a map based on a scene from the film 'Saving Private Ryan' which I'm sure many of you have seen.

Working alongside TheSoldier, Shockeros and geronymo123 to get this one polished off.

Also finished up the last of the civilian headgear, will preview it all later today.

Cheers,
Sturm.

Just to keep everyone informed of progress, I have been working on German Afrika Korp models, hats and apparel over the last week or so. Most are now done, I will thus move onto creating a British desert model with shorts, afterwhich I will focus on exporting out the winter models. That will then conclude all the exporting that is needed to place the Singleplayer models used in the campaigns.

Once all that is done, I will upload the patched version for the latest version of MoW.

Also, stay tuned tonight for some previews of what I have been working on, and a little sneak peak of Warmongers latest map : Stalingrad Outskirts (1943).

Finally, I'd like welcome Grenadier to the group, an avid follow of the mod, he also helped to set up the Russian based .vk website to help widen the demographic to Russian and Eastern European gamers.

Thanks again,
Sturm.
