easy font fix fixing to be in pure russian language for cold war mod ^^
The first campaign ("Airborne") is now in the scripting phase. All maps are first created, then scripted. As of now, the first campaign stands at only 4 missions, so I might add another mission following the Battle of Bloody Gulch where you hunt snipers in the Norman countryside (based on Band of Brothers). Brecourt Manor will also have to be redone due to the original version having serious pathfinding issues. Tasks as simple as making a patrol walk in an endless circle didn't work properly. Though despite that setback, I believe the maps will be 100% complete before the end of the month.
The following are just a few screenshots I've already posted to sum up the progress of "Airborne".
Make sure to hit that "track" button! It helps me out and you'll be able to see when I update (and possible release a few teaser missions ;) )
*Note I'm currently having talks with a team in helping them out with their mod. As I'm not sure if I can say anything about it due to not being sure if they've agreed on letting me help out, all I can say is that progress may slow down in the future, or come to a complete stop for a short period. Regardless, this mod WILL NOT die off at any point.

Assault Squad is essentially the shinier more visually appealing version of Men of War, I dont find that it adds a lot other than the skirmish mode, some new maps. some new units, and some new models replacing pre-existing ones. It's not exactly groundbreaking however, seeing as it pretty much builds off of the success of it's predecessor, I'm really not even sure why Assault squad was even made, my guess was targetting a streamlined Multiplayer platform, but the game is equally popular as a singleplayer…

Men of War is successful because each game naturally generates its own narrative. It is brilliant because it has character. It is great because (in campaign missions at least) you feel attached to your troops. Assault Squad is Men of War minus all of this, and is horrid. Its lone addition is the new Skirmish mode: a depressing, soulless grind against entrenched AI. Instead of wire-tight combat against a fellow human comes wave after wave of artificially buffed but simple-minded robots; in place…
