So, here's a list of all of our members to date:

  • 'Sceluk' (mapper)
  • 'SharkYbg' (3D modeller and coder)
  • 'Schlechtwetterfront' / 'Ande' (3D modeller and main coder)

We also currently talking to a few other potential members about joining the team. If you want to join, look here: Moddb.com

Now, as you'd expect with the increased in the number of members in our team, we have some sexy new models...

Schlechtwetterfront's been working on a kick-ass Snowtrooper for Hoth and hopes to make a Rebel trooper very soon:

We are also looking at suitable textures for Hoth (made by Sceluk), but unfortunately we don't have
anything to show you for that.

Member Andy_Ftw is learning the vehicle code in CE3 so we will be able to get the
vehicles all up and running in no time.

Finally, [RES]Sev has made an awesome page for over at resholonet.com (needs updating): Resholonet.com.br

That's all for now folks,

May the force be with you...

With Crysis 2 at so cheap on Amazon, and this, I actually have a reason to get Crysis 2. I gotta give you guys credit for that, because I disliked the game in demo form.

I see some people are still mislead by the saying that this is Crysis 2 mod. We are using CryEngine 3 Free SDK and from my perspective you don't need to buy Crysis 2 to play it unless you want to try it out no matter what the demo was ;)

Well it is useful to buy Crysis 2 if you want (one: support crytek, buy it on steam if you can, dont give money to EA on orgin). and also you can get an idea of the grpahics and AI and tech possible.

Yea, that's also true. We couldn't have done anything like this without crytek.

I... have not had the best opinion of Crytek. I have not heard the best things about their company, and their games always seem like they'll be a Skyrim -- better in concept than in the final execution.

Also, I have CryEngine 3 already installed on my PC thanks to an indie project I was volunteering for a while back, so I know how it'll handle on my PC. With my new AMD card, I should be able to handle it. In theory I'll even be able to handle most DX11 options, granted that without optimization the game would probably run at about 20-40 FPS.

I've got CryEngine 3 already on my PC from a project I did some volunteering for, so I know I'll be able to handle it.

And... I've not heard the best things about Crytek to begin with. And I'd probably get it through Amazon, they have way better prices than Steam usually does (outside of the Steam Sale bonanzas annually)

Ah, I merely said that because of what the ModDB page says. Sorry for the misunderstanding. And no... I don't want to play Crysis 2.

the demo was no representation of the actual game. IT was just a rushed slapped together console port. The actual game is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT and AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

Um, the streaming demo for Crysis 2 via Origin that allows you, within the time limit, to play the first two whole chapters of the game? And lets you try all approaches?

The MP demo also was very... very... questionable. Very badly done.

Crysis 1's demo however was amazing by comparison. It felt like a genuinely unique shooter, totally different from the others I had tried up until that point. That said, that was a long while back when I first played Crysis 1's demo... but I still find it superior to what I experienced of Crysis 2. The former had me locked in and ready to go. The second felt like a generic sci-fi story from network television.

The hoth troopers look a little disproportional, their heads are too elongated.

CANNOT WAIT TO PLAY!!!!
