Athena is a substance that was developed as an easily renewable powerful energy source. Although Athena was initially intended as a replacement for most energy sources, it was discovered that it caused certain mutations, such as increased metabolism, strength, endurance, and speed. It can also be used for medical treatment through tissue regeneration.

Some of the world's governments have found Athena quite useful for their own endeavours and signed a world wide ban on civilian use of Athena to have better control over it.

In response to the governments' ban, much of the world's population decided to rebel and gain back control of Athena distribution by force. To eradicate the rebellion, the United Nations created an organisation known as the Athena Defense Force.

Hello fellow modders! We are a new team continuing Athena's development, which was on hold while most of the code was developed. This is our first news update for Athena and we want to give you an outlook on Athena's future.

The multiplayer code is complete (including vehicles+chopper) and we are currently busy creating the two maps for our first release. Here are some concept art and models:

Athena_Distillery Athena_foliage_tests
Concept Art by Sinking and foliage test and mapping in progress, by Neahc.

Truck concept AH-109b Concept
Talros made these vehicle and chopper concepts. He's currently working on characters.

Remington 870 Final + Texture Athena_content Mp5
All weapons modeled by Master, skinned and textured by iSick.

For the Rebel faction, there will be some original weapons as well, and the Athena Defense Force will use some Athena enhanced weaponry and heavy weapons of their own. I want to show you the finished arms model, too.


If you're interested in Athena, please take a look at our website and register at the forums. We'll update regularly and make good progress and your feedback is very welcome: There is a PDF-quickguide available for Athena, which gives you a first impression of what Athena is about.

Here is a teamlist of Athena:

  • McViolent - Team Lead; Coding; Modeling; Writing
  • Master - Modeling; Texturing; Rigging
  • Neahc - Lead Mapper; Modeling; Texturing
  • Jokerme - Mapper
  • SinKing - Concept Artist, Management

That's all for our first news update. We hope you enjoyed the update and we will continue to work hard to provide you with a mod that we will all want to play! ATHENA TEAM

How did you get grass onto the textures? It looks awesome!

I'm very interested in starting up a MP mod with a global level system, similar to MW2. My only catch with the source engine is how poor a lot of the graphics are. However, you guys have outdone yourselves. This looks amazing. You have inspired me :)

Poor the graphics are? They look at least 2-3x better than MW2...
