The only thing you have to do if you want to use anything from my mods is that you ask me for permission and tell me what your working on and also credit me, I'll probably let you but I just want to see where my work goes. Except the things that are in the third party folder, they are not mine and I cannot give them away.

HOTD 1.5

I recently burnt out while modding video games and am just tired of doing it, it became boring and very taxing on myself after years. I always came to walls most of the time I tried to do anything and I just gave up after trying to get the music working for HOTD warband, I did everything right and still it didn't work so I didn't even bother releasing it. I did though for the M&B version but not for warband because I didn't even have the game installed and sorry to say but at that stage I didn't give two shits.

I don't think I will ever mod again and I don't plan to, I just wanted to make this clear but for those interested I have moved onto something more constructive. I needed to occupy my time with something so I started researching how to translate Japanese video games into English. After getting help for more than I week I started to make progress and fully understand the process of the trade, I am a fan of Magic Knight Rayearth and want to play the games but sadly most of them weren't released outside of Japan so I am taking it upon myself to translate every single one of them. It is myself and Niiri on moddb who is translating the game, I asked him for help since I can't read Japanese, he does a rough translation into English which I 100% of the time rewrite but he is still crucial in the process.

I haven't gotten the response I wanted to on Romhacking but in due time I hope more people take notice and get interested. This is what I am moving onto from modding and I actually enjoy translating this game unlike what happened to myself at modding. I first wanted to translate Magic Knight Rayearth 2nd: The Missing Colors as I thought it was a game based on the second season of the anime but sadly it has it's own story separate from anything else so no Nova...... grrr. Anyhow so far I have roughly translated around 50-60% of the game so progress is going really well, I made a release of the first third of the game nearly a week ago so if your interested please check it out on my blog. I am also interested in what you guys think as just because I won't be modding doesn't mean I won't be hanging around Moddb so what do you think.
Here is also a video that I recorded not long ago showing off the English translation, all the mistakes in it have already been corrected so all is good.

Hey as you know i'm a big fan of your work.
But once again I have some questions.
1. Will it be possible to get a Riot uniform? (Riot helm, thick bulletproof armor, soldier boots)
2. Sorry if I've already asked about this, but will it be possible to make the assault rifles automatic?
3. How much bigger will the map get? (With that I mean how many factions will there come, how many town etc.)
4. (Extra things) Will there come zombie dogs? Would there come zombie soldiers?

One of the things that are really incredible is that you take your time to answer us in here. That is something a lot of the other need to learn. It is an amazing mod and I hope you will continue with good work.

Why thank you, I really appreciate what you have said. I was thinking about adding a riot costume in way back last September when I was creating the police uniforms but I didn't know how to go about doing it so I just didn't create it.

I wasn't much good at texturing or modelling before but now I have gotten better, I even collected reference pics of a ton of Japanese police uniforms including the riot police. I could create one for a future release as im looking into modding Men of War Assault Squad at the moment.

Don't mean a year from now but perhaps between weeks - months from now. There were some problems with M&B as it can't properly display see through objects such as glass on riot helmets and shields, that's really bugged me with modding M&B.

I have asked how to make guns automatic but other modders gave me the code shoulder, 1866 western developers that was. There is OSP for warband but not regular M&B so we'll have to stick with single shot.

Don't know about adding any new factions or locations, haven't planned any as I have created all I wanted to so far. If you want to suggest anything then go ahead and I'll see what I can do.

Don't want any zombie dogs as they don't appear in the anime but I doubt they do in the manga either so sorry about that. Don't know about zombie soldiers, as far as I know none appear in the anime or manga. I want to stay along the anime so don't expect American Military soldiers but possibly Japanese SDF soldiers but at the moment I don't know.

I like it when people ask questions and such as that allows some form of communication between the modder and those who play the mod, some other modders are kinda arrogant but not all. Thank your for your questions as that's what kind of feedback I am looking for, thanks again and im glad you enjoyed playing the mod.

Thanks im glad you think so, lower your graphic settings as it crashes because the memory has overloaded due to the total poly and textures in the scenes. It is much more than native so you shouldn't play on the highest graphics settings, I never play with shadows on so take optional stuff like that off.

Yes they are but in the current version they don't have any dialogue done. I have done it all since then so in the update coming soon they'll have all that done.

Anyways great mod... played it for a bit. I hope you continue adding stuff and bring this mod to greatness. And one other question. Will there be any open ground areas, where you could spread your army of survivors or will it be only streets ??

Thanks im glad you liked it, there will only be city maps for the mod since it's based in Tokyo and that's more or less a concrete jungle. I could make an open area map but I would need to base it off a real life location so if you know of one then I'll see what I can do.

well If I think about only Tokyo then Open ground map could be Imperial Palace and Yoyogi Park (or basically parks)

Both locations seem like a good open area to fight in, if I do one it would probably be a park area but I may or may not create a new scene.
