Operation Market Garden (OMG) is a persistent multiplayer only modification based off the award winning real time strategy game Company of Heroes. We put a strong emphasis on balance, community, transparency, and fun. Currently in an open Beta, we are constantly improving, adding new OMG features and content.
Through our website the player tailors their company, customizing it to fit their play style and needs. Through our simple and easy to use launcher they join battle with their teammates against the enemy. There's no in game resource management, no base building, and no gimmicks. It's just pure combat, building on the already superb platform of Company of Heroes, and it's pure fun. Win or lose, your surviving units stick with you throughout your battles. The war persists, your troops persist, and its all at tip of your fingers.
We've entered a new year of OMG development, but before I talk about the things to come in 2011 lets take a look back at the progress made in 2010. Throughout the year veterancy was completely overhauled with its effects and requirements underwent multiple revisions. Also, there were two new units updates. One to Wehrmacht in July and the other to Opposing Fronts factions, British and Panzer Elite, in November. Operation Market Garden now features 25 custom made units not found in vanilla Company of Heroes. Each of these has custom models, textures, and statistics made to fit their specific role. Additionally, some of the 48 custom maps to offered by the modification were either revised or added in 2010. Beginning last February the OMG:Wiki started a massive renovation that finally finished in October. In November it dramatically expanded its in game statistics by adding roughly 200 in game weapon entries. It now stands as the most comprehensive Company of Heroes wiki around. The balance team stayed busy as well gathering community opinions, game play experience, and statistics resulting in several balance updates. 2010 was OMG's best year yet.
Building off of those achievements 2011 will have two main focuses, Doctrines and War Control Panel Three. Both of these project are already under development. Look for further information and previews in the coming weeks. However, today we have a long awaited feature that has finally come to fruition. Gliders are now working and available in the War Control Panel. Enjoy!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Operation Market Garden. We love games like Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
