An ambitious total-conversion modification for Relic's award-winning Company of Heroes® franchise, Modern Combat
transports players into the midst of a high-tech war between the current-day Chinese and United States armed forces.
Incorporating all-new factions, units, doctrines, gamemodes, artwork, music and maps, we aim to craft the most
immersive and enjoyable strategic representation of 21st-century combat possible on the PC.
.
Our team has adhered wherever possible to the unique and innovative gameplay mechanics that made Company of
Heroes®
the stand-out real-time strategy that it is. Players will need to rely upon a variety of traditional tactics in
order to succeed, whilst at the same time utilising to full effect the highly-advanced weaponry and equipment
employed by the militaries of today. Modern Combat caters to newcomers and veterans alike, and incorporates both
traditional and 'Hardcore' damage systems.

Hi again everyone!

Just to avoid any confusion from the get-go: yes, it's been over five (!) months since version 1.019 went live... and no, this isn't in regards to a new patch.

There are two reasons for this announcement:

.

Firstly:

As some of you might already be aware, Modern Combat has now been Greenlit on Steam via the Company of Heroes Mod Initiative, and will soon be downloadable just like any other Steam game (a huge thankyou to SgtConti for setting everything up!).

This will hopefully sort out ~90% of all issues that people report regarding installation, particularly BAT file issues, directory misunderstandings and download interruptions. It will also make Modern Combat accessible to the entire Steam community (and hopefully give the mod's dwindling playerbase a shot in the arm).

There are several major obstacles that need to be addressed before the release can go ahead, but if all goes to plan (which it almost never does) then expect our Steam debut in approximately two weeks!

Upcoming Steam Release!

Beta version of the Modern Combat Steam page.

.

Secondly:

Several times over the past few months I've mentioned a proposed rework of Modern Combat. After many months of personal experimentation behind the scenes, I think it's time to elaborate.

The plan is to create - for all intents and purposes - a Modern Combat v2.0 for CoH1. This rework would involve a complete overhaul of factions, units and doctrines, all with the intent of:

  • Making Modern Combat truly stand out, and less of a stylistic imitation of the original CoH (with the implementation of unique game mechanics entirely new to CoH modding).
    .
  • Breathing new life into the mod (taking the familiar and making it fresh again), as well as making a few select additions to the rosters of both factions. This would be an extremely efficient way to make full use of our existing assets whilst also giving the playerbase something novel to re-explore.
    .
  • Merging the US Army and Marine Corps into a single US faction (no more half-arsed standalone USMC faction), and then offering players the use of both factions (US and China) regardless of the DLC they own (or don't own).
    .
  • Taking the opportunity to incorporate long-requested additions and weed out the most unpopular elements of the mod.

I've already created a private demo build of the rework, and following small-scale internal testing have received some encouraging feedback, particularly concerning the unit overhauls and new game mechanics.


Experimental Air Superiority doctrine (as of five months ago). Read the description for details.

.
However It's currently a solo project, with vital team-members like Darkbladecr inundated at university and DMz and Beefy working tirelessly (not punny?) over at Eastern Front for the past few months. Very little can be done in the realm of 3D modelling and animating until/unless these team-members are able to return.

Nevertheless, should this rework end up going ahead as planned, I'm eager to involve the fans moreso than we did during the initial release of Modern Combat in March 2012. If the community seems interested enough in such a project then I'll upload the current faction design documents for everyone to scrutinise and discuss.

.

All the best!

~ Spoon, on behalf of the Modern Combat team.

Work still going for this?

I need to play again as the Marines, but I remember them being a little too similar to the Army

If at all possible, it'd be awesome to replace the Marines with NATO, and add Russia to be allies with China

The Marine units could still be used by making them a doctrine for the United States. If you select them as the doctrine, you would lose access to Army units and buildings, and gain access to the Marines instead! Ive seen in CoH mods where selecting a doctrine or a technology will deactivate/activate certain units, so that might be an idea

That way, you could make NATO the second allies nation, without having to fully create a new faction. NATO's doctrines could represent various countries. Germany, France, and the UK

Anyway, great mod, just got back into playing it, and its great :D

USA IS NATO.
Yeh, a lot of things would be awesome, but as it was mentioned countless of times before there isn't enough people to work on it. It's not the imagination that MC lacks it's the manpower that it lacks. :P
I too look forward to an update to this mod, sometime in late June would be cool cause then I'm on a vacation (lol as if my schedule of free time means anything xD) :D

I think the new update will be that the US Marines will have new units and new command tree's since its pretty the same as the US army in game.

and everything you've said seems like the same as the ostheer faction on EF if you select assault all support units will be disable and If you select support all assault units will be disable.

Hi guys. How do you import the models for map creation? Do you use vanilla world builder or Corsix?

i do not understand very well what are you asking...

if you want add new map in modern combat mod from other mod, you need use Corsix mod studio "SGA" files.

choose the map and extract in the respective modern combat map archive.

World builder is only to creat new maps starting from "0".

I think it's a great concept and everything, but really it's just Vanilla with reskins and different voices. That's what I felt when playing it, though I am a Blitzkrieg follower I prefer my tanks to kill light armored personal cars in 1 shoot and not 4 shoots, I also experienced sligtly problems playing with infantry as PLA does a pretty bad job against Amerian infantry but when I get my tanks I dominate the Battlefield. It's like the AI never really deploys tanks but only light armored cars, even…
