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.

Will this modification be available for MoW, MoW AS or MoW AS2?

"The modification was originally conceived for the original Men of War, however I have now shifted focus onto AS & AS2. A Previous MoW beta version has been made available to closed beta testers, however that version has since been pulled offline."

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,

But you must understand that people lose confidence about a modification that takes this long and no release date in sight.

Why I say that? There are severel mods out there which are even close to being finished but were never finished, take for example Blitzkrieg II(total conversion generals ZH) or Baldur's Gate 2 Redux(DA:O).

It is sad that modders invest there time on projects which never get a happy ending.

Like here Sturm overdoes the work with tiny things like NEW skins which are not really needed. I don't say that they are useless but as long as you just release maps with bare grass or wood terrain or even with cityscape, you should be fine.

He even pronounced an 'OPEN' beta which never came and that is more than 1 year old, even the info about that 'OPEN' beta was entirely removed. I am sorry but to say that YES we love that you do that but don't make us wait to something we might never get hands on. And don't come with the argument you don't have to follow this mod or else because you know there are rare to no mod which is even close to this one.

So my last word to this is, please more transparency and no more lies and hopefully a release before march this year.

I remember he promised an open beta, "In december 2012".
It is called double-cross studios for a reason.

I agree 100% with Jimopl, and I personally do think patience is key here, do not take any offence Lucianus, but you seem to be very impatient. Now, understandably so: Yes, we have been waiting for many YEARS for this mod to release. But at the same time I think you fail to realize the immense size of the mod. It takes a lot of time to completely redo an entire game (If not a bit of the engine) and stuff like that takes Game Studios some time to do, and that's with a TEAM of people. Double-Cross studios is only half, if not, a quarter of that size.

So it does come down to patience, and not berating the mod developers who are working hard for YOUR PLEASURE. It is a bit out of line, if you ask me, to beat them over the head when they are doing this for free. For you.

It is understandable that you would be mad over the vagueness of their release dates and mysterious disappearances. Well, guess what? **** happens and they can decide whether to tell you are not, just deal with it man, they are only human, and they can talk about what they want to talk about, they are in no shape or form obligated to release any that information to YOU or ME if they don't want to.

That is all I really have to say on this matter. Thanks for the discussion though.

I look forward to release. 'Keep it going DCS!'

In the main thing I didn't say anything else or different than you do. I just told the things obviously people experience here and why people are upset(like me).
But to the point YOUR PLEASURE can only be my pleasure when this mod(may be enjoyable for me and be released in a rational time).

Additionally, asking for more transparency is nothing too much to ask for. Any good developer do that, they even big companies speak about testing dates(Alpha Test, etc.).

Totaler Krieg mod started in 2008 simply as a skin pack, it hasn't died since then, instead only becoming more and more ambitious through the years, so I don't see it dying anytime soon as it has been nearly 7 years. It comes down to patience. Anyone here can plead as much as they want but it doesn't mean itll come any faster will it? With an almost guarantee of the mod releasing someday, all we can do is wait and watch! If that means waiting a few more weeks than that's great! If we have to wait longer then so be it! Sturm is a man of excellence and doesn't want to release unfinished work, and rightly so!

I didn't say he has to release unfinished stuff, lol.
I didn't know of that Totaler Krieg was a skin pack, I joined watching 2011, the same time I got known about Men of War(1) at that time it was around to be 'finished'.

But I know what you mean. Yes, RELEASE THE FINISHED WORK! Not unfinished crap. Well, even I think that this current state of the mod is even better than any Men of War in vanilla or any other mod.
