0 comments by Luthorian on Sep 12th, 2013


Due to the recent wave of "Mod dead!" and "When is the release?", we decided to release a small article to explain what's going on at present with Men of the Emperor.

This is not the same mod that started in March 2011. The original team has since dispersed and went on to do their own projects or left modding altogether, as of March 2012 the team consisted of team leader ☢SRB-CausesOrange☢, mapper RaZzOR_334 and modeler Chompster with the recent arrival of Luthorian as exporter and coder. With his arrival, it was decided that all old assets from the previous team were to be discarded and the mod started all over again with a new story, new factions and using only models created by our team (which you can find in the gallery).

As such, the current Men of the Emperor: Burning Horizon officially began in March 2012, with the team members written as well as a few more that have since joined to help with other duties, sadly none of them involve texturing although there have been a few texture artists that offered their help with specific models.

We have plenty we want to show you in-game, we just refuse to show untextured models outside of renders. So once again I welcome the help of any texture artist that wishes to help us bring Warhammer 40K into Men of War. Until then we won't be able to release any content for our watchers but work will go on all the same.

One more thing I'm interested about information, what are the current regiments of imperials and the hostiles/heretics?

For now, Cadian Shock Troops will be representing the Imperial Guard against a rebelling world's militia (or so they think ;|) loosely based on the first Vraks book and list.

Chompster, I have a simple question, well, it goes for all of us here...
When this mod gets close to beign done or releasing, are you going to end up like The Great War Mod for MoW?
They started just like you, and now we need to buy it to play it.
Well all I'm saying is, if you end up like them, working in your own cause not the players and follower's cause, you'll brake some many hearts...

I do not think that will happen, because this mod is a 40k inspired, but still does not have a 40k licence. If they wished to release it as a game they would need to talk to 40k licence holders and then with the BestBuy/1C (or whoever) to make it work (+ it would be really hard to make a profitable deal with both of them at once).
I do not know why is "The Great War" mod still in a mod section, when it is not a mod anymore. It is a "game" now and holding it in a mod section only looks like a cheap commercial and offends us, the moding community.

Regarding the commercialization subject, we here at Men of the Emperor: Burning Horizon have no plans to turn the mod into a full game. We are making this project for fun and intend to share with the community when we feel like it's in a fully playable state.

What he said!

I highly doubt we'd get the right to from GW even if we wanted to. So you really don't have to worry about that ever happening.

Alright then, thank you all for your answers and informations.
I, and most of your fellow followers and fans thank you with all our hearts for your great work, I still want to play this mod before christmass c: Take care mates, and great work!
Btw, If you'd accept my advice to you for this mod, I'd reccomend you making couple Xeno's planet mods, like free roam, so we could have damn more fun in the Editor, thanks again.

We take into consideration any and all suggestions within reason, but the current scope of the mod is focused around Imperial Guard and non-CSM Renegades. At a latter stage we may expand towards MoW-friendly xenos.

Only mod team members get access to the mod for now. I know it sucks but everyone else will have to wait until we're at a point we feel we can release something.
