BACKGROUND STORY:

Project 421 was the brain child of Dr. Adelbert Hillebrand, he developed a

way to enhance the strength and abilities of the modern soldier thru a combination of genetic

engineering and nano technology. Thanks to the major technological advancements in cloning

in recent years, they can also be relatively cheaply reproduced, making it possible to create

armies out of single human specimen. This called for the sacrifice of many unquestioning

and unaware young patriots to supply enough specimens to conduct the research required to acquire

a suitable production specimen. Narrowing it down to two of the choices, both had to go through

painful "physical enhancements" to ensure obedience and prepare their bodies for the strain and

conditions they would be required to endure. Five clones were made of each subject so that

thorough physical and mental evaluations could be conducted.. These first subjects were

terminated once it was determined that some of their memories had triggered a violent panic

state followed by a small massacre of laboratory workers. Due to the high risk of mental

overload or breakdown involved, nanobots were injected into the next set of subjects and were

used to inhibit the free will of their host by distorting and redefining signals sent by their brains. It

was then discovered that without frequent attention, the nano bots would become ineffective in

controlling brain activity and the subjects, now conscious of their fate became even more violent.

A rage was let loose against the facility cracking walls, destroying equipment and killing nearly all of the

staff. Each subject had been genetically enhanced to be more physically capable, this somehow

severely altered their DNA, causing unexpected results. Ignoring the most important breakthrough in

the history of mankind, the project's funding was terminated and all witnesses and records ordered

destroyed. The Dr. was eliminated during the attempted Biological Shutdown of these "Subjects" after

enabling their escape. Suddenly, all over the world an army of super soldiers started striking Military

and Civilian targets in a seemingly random fashion. Growing to great power, and calling themselves THE

HAND OF GOD, these soldiers seemed unbeatable. Demanding nothing and causing widespread panic,

Something had to be done. With the late Dr.'s technology in their hands, the United States Gov't

declares war on H.O.G. with the creation of their own Meta-Soldiers... The (M)eta(R)esponse (F)orce.

It needs alot of work but this Mod is rich with potential.

Any plans on getting this to Steam?

My current plans are to put out a few more small and quick releases. Ill be adding a few more weapons, grenades and maps. In the near future, I'll be putting it up for Greenlight. Recently figured out how many eyes are on mods just having them as a vote able option. Apparently, I am starting a new tradition of every release I do, I break the dedicated server...so....ya.

Do you have a "Roadmap" of things you'll be adding as you Develop this?

Yes, although, some of it is dependent on me getting assistance....in multiple areas. Part of why I have this out is fishing for folks who see potential regarding level design\scenarios.

So what other Guns will you add?

Will there be like a Burst Fire Assault Rifle, Revolver, Magnum Pistol, DMR, Crossbow, or Grenade Launcher?

The next weapon to be added is a taser for the pistol slot. Primary fire will shoot the charge and shock the target for a few seconds while secondary fire will work as a close range zap. I am working on getting it to tether to the target on primary fire but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it exactly right. Flash nades and C.F.E.;s( Concussive Force Explosives ) are the very next things to add. As far as firing modes\scopes on new weapons...yes there will be weapons that qualify for what you ask, however, I am not sure if I am going to make most guns modular in that sense or just come a certain way by default. No current plans for revolvers or nade launchers....a mini, automatic x bow might be a thing at some point. There are a few things in the design doc I might also let go of...have to wait until I prototype them before I decide for sure( lasers! )

Also sorry for the double post, MODDB wouldn't let me edit the other.

This Mod looks pretty Good, will there be any Bots for Playing Alone/Practicing?

I implemented the bots from the Fistful of Frags release. Right now, they just follow the nav file and find the opposite team and attack. I'll be slowly adding to their AI as I go along, starting with identifying\defending objectives.
