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.
Operation Market Garden is a Persistency modification for Company of Heroes & Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts. This release includes all 4 factions (British, Panzer Elite, American, Werhmacht)fighting battles in a persistent environment where every kill your squads get makes them better (If they survive the battle!)

99% stable version of Operation Market Garden (only one crash bug left)
Persistency: Every kill your troops get on the battlefield gives them more experience and makes them better for the next battle - Every win comes at the cost of squads you've grown to rely on from previous engagements!
All 4 Factions in and fully playable
Fully functional WarCP that will let you build companies, buy upgrades, etc.
New Features like Halftrack Loading, Paradropping Fallschrimjaegers, Weapons able to garrison emplacements, etc.
New Doctrinal Units (only Americans have new units at the moment) including new tanks & infantry all of which are quite balanced to fit in the gameplay and don't overlap existing units
6 new & exclusive maps
Simple battle file downloader that you tell where you installed COH and it puts the battle files and .UCS in the right place for you
A single installer that brings it all under one roof
Comprehensive Launcher 1.0 will include Battle Creation, Chat, Battle File Downloading & Automatic Version Updates - ETA 2-3 Days
Comprehensive Launcher 2.0will include all of above + company creation & management + automatic map downloading (maps will be selected before game launches) + Dynamic warmap integration - ETA Mid-February
DOCTRINES - While some doctrine UNITS are in, the complete doctrine system has over 600 unique abilities, many with multiple levels, so will take a while for Bonte & Marcus to get them in - We estimate 4-6 weeks for full implementation but we may roll them out a tier at a time i.e. week 2: All T1s Week 3 All T2s, etc.
For those of you who have never played OMG or EIR before, you can get acquainted with the army creation process through this video
And finally, this is a community based modification - Communication is exceptionally important & the way we communicate/organize games in OMG is through voice chat software Ventrilo

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).
