Return to Castle Wolfenstein is built on the awesome Quake 3 Arena engine by the id Software team. The game itself is loosly based on World War II seeing the Axis and Allies do battle.

The games flawless attention to detail, fluid multiplayer and single player gameplay means that it has already been modded a great deal! These mod's do not let this game down either adding to it's wonderful single player campaign and also creating new multiplayer environments which see's this somewhat arcade war simulation taken to the next level in excitement...

now get this damn game and load up some mods because it ROCKS!

Kept you waiting, huh?

It's been almost 5 months since the release of RealRTCW 2.1. I recieved a lot of valuable feedback since then. This will help me to further improve and expand RealRTCW. Now, let's talk about upcoming content.

Custom maps

Trondheim and Project 51 addons are still on their way. But list of the upcoming RealRTCW adapted custom maps has expanded:

  1. Operation Trondheim trilogy (WIP)
  2. Project 51 (WIP)
  3. Alone at War
  4. Arkot map pack
  5. Ghosts of War
  6. Hindenburg
  7. Pharao's Curse

And more...

For now I decided to concentrate on this maps. You can expect new weapons, rebalanced AI, improved UI and sounds.

Arsenal is expanding!

I decided to improve the behaviour of the old weapons and add completely new ones.

There is no allied sniper rifle in RealRTCW, except top secret snooper rifle.

Now we have one - Scoped M1 Garand is coming! Scope thing is working just like with mauser - you need to pick up scoped rifle to attach scope to the rifle.

As you may know, sniper always need a reliable secondary weapon to defend himself in the close range. Now you have a Revolver - a slow but powerful pistol with 6 rounds.

You can watch gameplay with new weapons below.

Sadly, this is all, that I can tell you for now. Currently I'm experimenting with the various weapons, trying to make every single one of them unique and fun to use. Also there is a couple of new features, which I'm not ready to talk about. So you can expect more in the future articles!

WHEN?

The new version of RealRTCW will be released this year, along with the Trondheim trilogy and Project 51. No release date for other maps.

Cheers!

Am I the only guy here who hated the default weapon models, I mean look at them they just look hideous. The FG42 model wasn't too bad but I still had some gripes with it. But everything else was just horrible, no offense to ID Software but I wander what was going through their minds when they modelled the guns

I love almost all mods and maps that had being created for this game. But I am curious to ask if anyone ever tried to fix some minor problems from the Original game that it appears also in mods.

1) If you equip the flamethrower and kick your enemy, he will react as he catch on fire !!!! WITHOUT EVEN SHOOTING LOL !!!

2) Create if possible "auto-reload off" option. I mean seriously when the clip is empty then you should switch to another weapon, but that is not possible ?

3) One option that I disable from the game is the "cg_autoactivate", basically the auto-pickup of items and weapons. I love this option to disable it because is adding a little bit of realism. The only problem with this option is that is a little tricky where you have to aim on the object or item you want to pickup. Another problem is when you reach an altar full of spikes with a treasure on it, you cannot pick it up.Is in the map "crypt2" at the end of the level.

Which mod has better AI? RealRTCW or Venom Mod?

Generally, AI is the same in both mods. Me and Hellbaron, we only altered .ai files(accuracy,reaction,health etc.). In realrtcw i also altered some ai stuff through source code( for example melee damage for undead). None of us have skills to do major changes to AI. It requires much more than simple editing of .ai files and source code.

It would be awesome if someone made a mod that has all the stuff that was exclusive to the PS2 and XBOX versions.

Totally agree.
This would be absolutely nice.
Maybe I'll try once my mod's development over.
The PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions were awesome.
There is much to use in both games; exclusive content.

Are you still planning to make that mod for Return to Castle Wolfenstein that will add all the new content they added to the Xbox port to the PC version?
