17 comments by Luthorian on Jan 10th, 2015

It's been a while since we've last updated and we felt it would be insulting to our watchers to just leave it as it is without saying a word. Over the last few months progress had slowed to a crawl and with it, motivation, to the point where it bordered on becoming a chore as opposed to an enjoyable experience. As such, we are officially declaring this mod on indefinite hiatus and apologize to fans of the Warhammer 40k universe as well as Men of War players who took interest in this attempt to convert an excellent strategy title into the brutal universe of WH40K.

Hey Chompster is your mod will include all the main enemies AKA Xenos and a Imperial-Class Titans?

Well, depends on exactly who will volunteer to help out in this mod and when. As of now, the mod is pretty much at a standstill. Titans are WIP but hopefully at some point in the future if anyone picks up this mod and dusts it off, they can become functional. As for xenos, Tyranids are mainly melee based and they are bug like creatures. Extremely difficult to put into the game with the original MoW engine. Orks are half and half so maybe eventually you would have seen some shoota's in the game, but the mod was/is mainly focused on Imperial Guard and Renegades. The Space Marine chapters were going to be added in right after.

Hey guys, I've got a DCG build for Men Of The Emperor ready to go. Would you be willing to open up the download settings to allow non-team members (ie. me) to upload here?

Would it be possible for when you have the enemies complete few maps maybe, you could release that so people can play it within the editor and give feedback on any player bugs and what can be improved and what we all love about it :)

Cheers keep up the great work I'm willing to wait for years for this mod.

As said before, the MoD is basically at a complete standstill. The only reason this content was released was basically so we didn't leave you empty handed and so that the content could be given for public use in case anybody wanted to contribute to this mod as help is something that's a huge requirement.

Will there be any plans on moving this to Assault Squad 2 once you get a steady build?

Perhaps release one version for original Men of war and then work on expanding into Assault Squad 2 as well?

If we can get a stable team setup it'll definitely be something to consider. The way AS works(with smaller skirmishes) it might work better to release small "missions" while working on a larger, narrative campaign for vMoW.

Many thanks and kudos for actually releasing what you have done instead of just going dark! You guys deserve a big round of applause for that!

The stuff you've done so far is incomplete as you say, but it's still pretty cool!

If I can figure it out (no promises), would you mind if I uploaded a DCG version based on your stuff sometime?

Cool. It didn't take very long actually. I tried to follow your FAQ and made two sides, Cadia and Chaos, and one planet, Cadia. The Cadians have plenty of troops for a few squad types, but Chaos has just one squad since it doesn't have many types and they still look like Germans :P

I gave both sides the same vehicle sets and used your maps. In dusk environments they look very moody and nice.

I played a couple of battles: both times I purchased a Leman Russ - the first time, I had some allied Chimeras running around and the enemy had some too along with some support weapons (lascannons or something) - then a platoon of enemy Leman Russ tanks showed up and disabled me. The second time, my allies and the enemy were all infantry; once I realized that, I just drove around and let the side turrets blast them, since the enemy had eliminated most of my infantry already.

There are two big immediate problems for me: one, you don't have minimaps for your maps (unfortunately, I'm not the DCG person who makes those, so I don't know how). Second, the functionality of the tanks is missing alot - they drive and shoot great for the most part, but the damage model and vision aren't really working (as you probably know), and I don't know how to fix that myself.

Anyway, what's there is fun enough, so I'll release it along with our regular DCG release sometime in the next few months...

(if you'd like to see or approve it before I release it, pm me)

While lacking(from our side of course) that still sounds like quite a bit of fun. I'll be sure to give it a try!

And no need, release when you feel like it :)
