About

This is a mod in progress for MoW:AS2 changing the theme to the Star Wars universe with new high quality content, new non-linear RPG gameplay and new game mechanics like functional bacta dispensers, blast doors and much more. Please check out the F.A.Q. section!

Gameplay

You will command small commando squads and special weapons, forcing you to use them very carefully and think about every step you make. Sometimes you will be playing a specific character (prepare to use the slowdown function and to direct control units ALOT) with AI-controlled companions by your side. Some levels will feature indoor enviroments - hallways and hangars, accessing control panels and opening gates to reach your objectives. Dynamic/random events and side objectives:killing a specific person can cause mercenaries to attack you, or you will recieve supplies from somebody you helped earlier - even the enemy can gain strength from your decisions.

Support & Donation

We put alot of work into this with the bit of free time we can spare. If you want to see us making more progress, please share this mod and our newest stuff with your fellow gamers and friends! Even if you are no modder and can't help us directly, you can still tell other people about this (who might be able to join us). You see, your support is really important for us to get the full project done faster!

You can donate here if you wish to support Buzztron personally that way.

Gameplay video

Hi Troopers,

I've uploaded a new video to my YT channel, demonstrating the updates from the last article in action.

On a side note, I fixed some issues with the map props which caused the AI to behave dumber than they do anyway. I mean, let's face it. The AI in the MoW series isn't great. They bunch up on cover, have a bad general concept for cover usage, they love to throw nades at their friendlies, bandage in the middle of a fight, run straight into gunfire, etc... but back to the news!

AI vision

You may have noticed in previous videos that the AI wouldn't shoot through open doors unless they were being fired on first. They weren't able to spot enemies through open doors or holograms, shields and armored glass either. Well, now they do, as you can see in the video. They shoot anything through opened doors (and no longer go crazy shooting at closed doors) and holograms on sight and see through all kind of shields and armored glass walls.


YouTube:


While I keep working on these kind of things, there isn't anything going on in terms of models. Please, if you have skills in making 3d models for MoW or know someone, support this mod and make sure you/they get in contact with me. Thanks!


Part 2:


Cheers,

Buzztron

Vehicles are not in the demo and make sure you have the right AS2 version. Do you really think Buzztr0n would upload broken things? Just check the installation section.
