6 comments by PlayerHOI on Apr 20th, 2014

Hi everyone, this dev diary will talk about the bookmarks that will be introduced in beta 4.

Modern Warfare is set to be played between the year 2000 all the way to 2020. Since its initial development a lot has happened and the recent events in the Arab world will be represented in the mod. Let's take a look at the bookmarks that will feature in the mod and recap what exactly happened at that particular date.

Please note that in Beta 4 only the first bookmark will be focused on, later versions of the mod will focus on future bookmarks, do not expect to be able to fight the Syrian civil war with beta 4.

01.01.2000 -Y2K
This is the first bookmark of the mod starting in the year 2000 after the Y2K disaster, can you survive the computer driven chaos the world is about to be plunged into?

7.10.2001 - War On Terror

The war on terror began with the invasion of Afghanistan and continued until today. While the initial goal of the invasion was the capture of Osama Bin Laden the goal was later expanded to the establishment of a democratic state in Afghanistan with the removal of the Taliban regime. At the beginning of the game Afghanistan is divided between the Islamic state of Afghanistan (aka The Northern Alliance)  and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (The Taliban).

19.03.2003 - Invasion of Iraq

The invasion of Iraq began on the 19th of March with coalition forces bombing runs in Baghdad and later a ground assault. The Iraq war was initiated with a stern insistence by the US president George W Bush that Iraq had developed weapons of mass destruction and thus posed a threat to the world. Despite the evidence provided by the US many Nato countries did not rush to join this war due to some serious doubt regarding these allegations. After the conquest Iraq you will have the option to form a new democratic state in Iraq.

07.08.2008 - South Ossetia War

The South Ossetia War was an armed conflict in August 2008 between Georgia on one side, and Russia and the separatist South Ossetia and Abkhazia on the other. The fighting started after a shelling of Georgian villages by the South Ossetian sepratists. After a swift responce by the Georgian army Russia intervened to help its ally South Ossetia.

18.09.2010 - The Arab Spring
While the Arab Spring is not a military conflict this bookmark is meant to jump start the players to the events that led to the overthrow of leaders across the Arab countries and especially in Tunisia where the Arab spring began with the self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi. The events were followed by the mass demonstrations that led to the downfall of Husni Mubarak the Egyptian president and later Muammar Gaddafi in Libya.

15.03.2011 - Syrian Civil War
The Syrian civil war began with peaceful demonstrations following the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt. The protesters were met with an aggressive response from the regime led by president Bashar Al Assad. The conflict rages on until today with a long stalemate between government forces and various rebel groups.
These are the bookmarks to be featured in the mod, future updates to the mod will enhance each bookmark until all of them are playable.

There will be faction specific war machines like tanks, aircraft ...etc? And if yes it will be great if you can order new vehicles from another state, or just buy licence to make them like it works in real

Well there will be nation specific war machines like the "Eurofighter Typhoon" but not faction specific. And like in the vanilla game you will be able to buy a license to produce them yourself.

Will north korea be considered a superpower i.e. will you be able to start WWIII by say an event or just by declaring war on North Korea? (of course nobody will help them)

It certainly is not a superpower, if you manage to turn it into one that's a whole different story...

You can start a chain reaction since the USA has a guarantee on South Korea so in an event of a war they will join the south to repel an invasion from the north.

This could lead China or Russia to join the war...

thanks for the quick response and answer to my question.

I was mainly wondering who or what would start WWIII. I mainly play as the US in HOI and will be starring as Uncle Sam in your mod, with this i realize the middle east will be the main theatre of war. I thought about such events such as demonstrations of North Korean might (as if they had any) could be cause for war. Like if a nation was building nuclear weapons would one be able to use that as an excuse to invade and utterly crush them?

Keep up the good work

Well right now there are no plans to start WW3 in the mod, this is just a historical simulation of the events that happened between 2000 - 2014.

Obviously if you want to start a world war you will be able to do it practically anytime.
