Total Conversion modification for Men of War: Assault Squad & Assault Squad 2 (TBD) .

Introducing a WW2 modification for DMS, 1C and Bestway studios title, Men of War.

The goal of 'Totaler Krieg 1939-45' is a unique one for an RTS title. It doesn't focus on balancing, or anything 'game' related. No, this modification's sole aim and goal is to bring the most historically accurate portrayal of WW2 as made possible by the GEM engine to your screens - "A total revamp and historical conversion".

Nothing is left untouched. All assets, models, textures except those such as fauna and buildings have been, or are being completely replaced. Each faction of each alliance, Axis powers, Commintern, and those of the Allied alliance will be represented in some form or another with no detail spared; uniforms, helmets, weaponary, soldierly equiptments, voices, soldier portraits, flags and other faction specific items will be present. Each individual texture has been painstakingly recreated with the greatest attention to detail and care in order to preserve the integrity of the modifications goal, and also to honor those who served and fell during the greatest conflict in history.

For those out there who have longed for a game which puts the highest emphasis on realism, regardless of the advantages and disadvantages exposed on the battlefield, then this work is for you.

Support me and you will be rewarded with an experience never before seen in a game.

- Every faction represented to some degree, greater emphasis on the larger powers such as (Commonwealth, Soviet Union, France, United States of America, Hungary, Romanian, Poland, Italy), co-billigarent nations such as satellite, puppet and non-allianced nations for example, Croatian, Georgian Ostruppen, Belgian SS, French SS, Polish Forces in exile, French & Belgium forces in exile, Norwegian SOE agents, Spanish Blau Division, Austrian forces in the Wehrmacht will also feature.

- Historically accurate uniforms and equiptment variations for all nations, for all time-periods from 1939 to 1945, on both the Western and Eastern theaters of War.

- Weaponry and ballistic characteristics have all been incorporated to their realistic values.

- Each armed force of each faction will be featured, including the Army, Airfoce, Navy and other specialist force such as the Waffen SS

- Correct Squad, Section, Platoon and higher configurations of each army to match their war-time numbers.

- Completely overhauled Menu, interface, Ui and Music.

Thanks for reading & maintaining an interest in my work.


When Will Totaler Krieg be released?

"The modification will be released as soon as all work has been completed in correspondance with the current progress report."
Will this modification be available for MoW, MoW AS, AS2 or BoE?

"The modification was originally conceived for the original Men of War, however I have now shifted focus onto Battle of Empires. This was due to a number of reasons, one being improved stability and performance."
Can you list all the nations / nationality of soldiers that will be present in-game?

"Yes, playable nations will include: Britain, Canada, France, United States, Germany, Soviet Union, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Belgium & Finland. Within those nations, other playable units will include Georgian, Czech, Dutch, Swedish & Spanish native soldiers."

Do you still take donations?

"Yes, located below is a hot-link that will direct you straight to the modifications donation fund."
Do you still take Beta tester requests?

"No, not at this present time. Therefore donations do not entitle you to a place in the Beta-testing team, although you can still put forward suggestions that will gain precedence . Your name will also be added the the modifications credit list."
Do you require applicants for the DCS developer group, i.e Texture Artists, Composers, Modellers e.t.c?

"Yes, I also offered paid positions, however as of now I do not need applications as the development team is currently scouting the above mentioned positions on a professional level."

Faces Of War

Today I like to demonstrate what I have been working on during the last two months. These are still works in progress, but they are at a stage where they can be revealed. I had a goal, to create unique faces, hairstyles, facial features and war scars to allow me to have enough variations present in-game to give the impression of individuality and a degree of randomness between soldiers appearance. Therefore I created 16 totally original face models. I then began to minimally tweak these to create new facial structures and expressions. Finally I began to apply various hairstyles, bruises and blood stains to increase the different iterations. What you will see below is a fragment of these designs, soon to be completed I hope to have in excess of 50 genuinely different facial personalities ranging from Western European, Northern & Nordic, Eastern European and Slavic. I hope you all appreciate what I'am trying to achieve.

Once again I would like to praise the community for it's continued support, it was a momentous landmark reaching 1000 trackers, and for that I'am truly grateful. There will be another news update within the month outlining how the port to Assault Squad 2 is shaping up.

Thank you,

Everyone should unite helping sturm write new excuses for future release delays!!!
I'll start
1)sturms keyboards are working on AAA batteries and all batteries died. So release will be next friday.
2)sturm has problems with his girlfriend and she breaks his monitor. So release will be next friday.
3)Sturm is perfectionist. So release will be next friday.(ups my bad this excuse was already used)

@NawM8 do you really think that we would have the mod if Sturm uploaded it..NO! Sturm has delayed like 4 times this is the 5.
I don't see how we all are getting this mod.. since all the delays.

Its not the upload that is taking a while, sturm sent a flash drive containing Totaler Krieg to an individual who is capable of uploading it. Sturm has said it might reach it today or Tuesday, so you can't necessarily blame Sturm if the package doesn't get there on the time promised.

*Yawn* Guess I'll come back tomorrow and see if the mod is out. Currently the comments entertain me more then this ******** we are being spoon fed. Just buy ******* Gates of Hell people and get over it we can't do anything more. I don't see why you are getting all worked up about something you can't change. This is a MOD for game that is being made by the author yeah so what obviously they aren't finished as they say they will release and use the state of completion as an excuse. Just wait for ******* Gates of Hell and stop wasting all your time on breath on this mod. Because from what I've seen nothing you say or do will make a difference. So just go find something else to do with your spare time instead of obsessing over this absolutely phony "mod". You would probably have more luck developing your own game engine, making a decent WWII RTS, then making your own completely realistic TK similar mod. So yeah if you need something else to do instead of donating your money to these shitbirds I reccomend several titles avaliable on steam. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat is a really fun survival horror shooter, and it becomes especially intense and challenging with the MISERY mod here on moddb. I'd rather be getting hunting down by a pack of bloodsuckers then even ******* pay this mod nothing more then a quick peek to see what the new excuse is. For people interested in Grand Strategy I would reccomend Victoria 2. If you have played CKII i'm sure you'll like this. It takes a little learning but once you get the hang of it you can do anything you please. A great mod for this is the POP demand mod which rebalanced the economy and different citizens of your nation. These are both avaliable at around $20 base price but Victoria will be more since you need the expansion packs. If you are really bored I would get it immediately but you can probably wait till the Christmas sale. TK's Christmas present to us is going to be another botched release date. Hey fun fact want to know the difference between TK and the mods for the abovementioned games? These great mods actually came out. Not like this absolutely cringeworthy, revolting and complete **** up of modification for a game. Oh sorry I meant games as in games times ******* 5! Can't wait to see 6 later! Anyways just go on Steam and waste your life in a game rather then contribute to this gathering of absolute absurdness. If anybody wants to talk to me add me on steam IzzyTheGreat. P.S. No offence but are you guys ******* Nazi's or something. All I see is pictures of German this German that. Not trying to diminish or belittle Germany's fight in World War II but try and maybe cool it down with this **** please? It creeps people the **** out.

Buddy look at some of the comments you've made and you're trying to tell me I've wasted my time? You probably spent more time crafting this clever reply then even considering the fact that the mod just isn't ready.

NawM8 Nov 24 2015 replied:

For 1. The reply took me like 5 seconds to come up with 2. The mod is a lite version so its not ready anyway so i knew that already 3. If you had done a little more searching you might have found comments stating that it was a lite version.

SirIzzy Nov 24 2015 replied:

And yes I know it's a lite version. What does this have to do with anything? Obviously this lite version isn't ready for release. How bout we just stop arguing with each other? I just made that comment because I was fed up with the ******** and I wanted other people to see the light. I mean this mod WILL be badass IF it comes out and I'm perfectly will to spend money on the game I was simply trying to tell people to stop wasting their time by using some of mine. So really all 3 but one of your points has been nullified now can we just get along?
