Created the Half-Life mod "Sands of War" left it early in Alpha stage. Then started two very short lived mods. Arctika for HL and Uprising for HL2. They never made it into Alpha as our coder quit. Ran the gaming league Major League Online from 2002-2007. Its been inactive since but we still have a URL up.

Yeah and I dont know if you can tell by these pictures, even if you view it in original size, but the map is set in a thunder and lightning rain storm.
We will have day maps, rainy maps, sunny maps, city maps, country maps and jungle maps.

Gret ideas. For now its taken along time to get the game to alpha and beta still off. So French or Anzac forces or VC wont be for first release but maybe for a future release.
Officer class is not planned for Bet but is planned to be included one day. The officer will be able to call in air strikes, mortar etc.
For sure will not be in Beta and not planed for RC1.
But would be great goal for 1.5

Yeah I carry a Smith & Wesson .38 for work. Most BMX racers, the sport I come from, still race a 20 inch like we did when the sport was started.
Why mess with a good thing.

This will be a USA option
Green Beret in Vietnam: 1957-73
By Gordon L. Rottman
See Page 43

However we may replace it with this
Smith & Wesson Mark 22 Mod.0 "Hush Puppy"

Which one would you rather carry as USA Special Forces?

THe NVA Pistols are Makarov and Tokarev Pistols

Sure, but a bit of away from that. Fortress Forever (I come from the TFC fanbase) Is just now getting a Steam release and that game has been released along time ago. So we just want to get to Public beta before worrying about delivery.
Thanks Leon. I just know you will enter our mapping contest.
More details as we get further in Alpha.

We are putting together our next 2 ModDB news posts. 1 is about weapons. 1 is about our map by Chris. Don't forget we do News Releases both here and at our website. Sometimes throwing in a sneak peak in our forums.

Did I mention we now have 2 coders and 2 weapons modelers? Coding on our Alpha 1.0 is amazing. Adding all sorts of features we hadn't even planned on when the mod was started. Many have already been tested and are in Alpha. But hint, we plan to have a very realistic version of the mod. Maybe a fun mod. A zombie mod? Well that's not yet in the cards, sorry, but you never know.

Hope everyone is well. Im still trying to get the mod Fall of Saigon released. The first Alpha tests are underway. If anyone remembers me from my TFC days as [RzP]Racer or my days running .2xL guild say hi.
Miss all my old buds from Hostile Intent and Sands of War as well.
Possum and Mantis from SoW are still around and doing great.
The last game I was into was Insurgency for HL2 but it faded away it seems.

Hey guys thanks for taking the time to post here. Means alot. Dont forget to stop by our forums as well. We dont post all our pictures only here.

My favorite Zombie mod was Brainbread. That mod team rocked and made two great mods but both were HL and then HL2 came out and they never got enough traction.

Thanks for the pat on the back guys. Possum deserves it. Yeah Leon the maps are all set slightly different. 2 are sunny and 1 in a thunder and lightning storm and one is gloomy. Planning a Jungle Map contest with cash prizes. Just waiting till we get farther along.

The next weapon to be done is the M60 then the M16 or Sniper Rifle should be next. We could use a second weapons modeler.

OMG coming from you Leon that means alot. Thanks. For those that haven't seen Leon's work visit his website, stunning maps. Yes I tried to recruit him for FoS but he was just too busy.
We have been doing alot of updates on our website and teases in our Main forum room.
Drivable Chrome Angel, only if we do a SP. But we don't plan to start a SP till we have the MP out and of course the bugs worked out, sorry.

I think the truck looks amazing. Anyone care to make some models for Source for us, feel free to join the mod team and show off your skills.
Multiplayer on Source has its limitations, we will try to push those to the edge.

RacerXLR8 Dec 2 2012, 10:23pm says:

Yeah for sure we need something done with the eyes. Ive already talked with the texture artist. Not sure if there is something he can do or if the modeler has to do something. Or if its just the pose or lighting etc.

I advised maybe more wrinkles or the dark look under the eye. Maybe just more darkness to the blue of the eyes. I dunno.

Anyhow we are always looking for help. If you already know how we can make this model better, then please stop in our forums and join the team, even if just to help us tweak things.

Appreciate the kind words and constructive criticsm
This map is just underway, just trying to get several maps ready for Alpha. By Public Beta this map will look even better.
As for the backgrounds, some maps will have dense jungle and mountain backgrounds, some more open to vary the feel. Your just looking at one view of this map ;)

I agree the gun needs more used look. In fact it has it, it just isnt showing up in this video, but check the images elsewhere for other shots of the gun.
This is all for Alpha. Still have a ways to go for Beta and Release.
Thanks so much for taking the time to post your thoughts. Please do the same in our forums to help lite a fire under our team :)

Thanks for taking the time to post feedback, compliments and constructive criticism. This is just for Alpha. So it will be tweaked by Beta, with your guys specific feedback so thanks.

Today I actually bought a Vietnam Helmet. This darker helmet is actually just used late in the war. Its the version I bought. Early in the war they used a much lighter simpler camo. The guy I bought my helmet from had one of those also. Finally some helmets had plain covers and others were greatly faded and the camo almost invisible.

Kartoon! man we need you back. We have been making much progress since your weapons were modeled. But you didnt leave us the weapons on our file share. Help. If you could also finish up the M60 we would have enough weapons for USA Beta test. But if your not interested in finish up the weapons, can you just get us the ones you made. And help Unknown with his animation render lol. His video doesnt render as nice as your render. Player models are finishing up quick. Rifkeman (M16) is done, just need your M16 lol. He is working on Sniper now.
Please visit the mod team forums or shoot me an email
