Rising Sun Source Online (Working Title) RSSO

About this mod: We are making Rising Sun Source Online as a complete conversion on Source Engine the goal is to release this for free and recreate the great memories, community and joy that Medal Of Honor Rising Sun(PS2) provided us. Using the Source engine will allow us to do some really cool things. While we are deeply committed to authenticity we feel that we can make some really cool improvements from the original that will help the game while still staying consistent to the original game we all loved.

About us: This is our first exploration into game development. We figured that we should create something that is very near and dear to our heart while learning about game creation and modification. We both played MOH:RS exclusively for years and were a large part of what was once an incredibly vibrate online community. While this is our first mod and we nowhere near experts or professionals we are incredibly committed to every last detail. This is something that we have been considering doing for years and finally at the beginning we decided to go for it. We really want to be thorough and professional with our work. With that being said we are first time modders and this requires a lot of time that we put in on our own. We have a goal for releasing in November of 2014 but it is almost impossible to tell if we can achieve this we are working in uncharted territory.

Project Overview

Our goal is to have both original maps and your classic favorites. In this process we have decided to remove some classic maps. This is not to say that they may not be created but they may not be around for the initial launch.
Here is what we are thinking.

We have completed 2 maps so far and they obviously have are 100% Confirmed. These maps are measured 100% to the centimeter.

Calumpit Chaos - 100% Confirmed (Note these images are early and also running on DOD:S)

All done just has a few touch ups.

Shima Field - 100% Confirmed

All done just a few touch ups needed.

Death in the Orient - 90% Very Likely
Will be in the game and is next in line for creation this will happen as one of the big three maps in the game.

Idol Assault- 75% Likely
We really love this map and want it in the game should be next after Orient. Also could do some really cool things with the esthetics of the map. STAY TUNED.

Hangar Havoc - 60% Probable
May be the next in line, kind of a low key map but it plays well and could be cool in source.

Battleship Raiders - 60% Probable
Could also be really cool in Source a little difficult but need to just make one boat and mirror it which helps make it easier.

Boxcar Brawl - 50% Maybe
Its possible only time will tell.

Solomon Showdown - 25% Unlikely
This is kind of a sad one for me. Its one of my favorite maps I put it fairly high. But lets face it, its an ugly map and poorly designed. In order to recreate this map we have to really take away from the powerful tools that Source provides us with. There is a possibility that this map comes in a new form like in a cave or something like that. But right now it seems out.

Mauraders at Midnight - 0% out
Lets face it the black sheep of the maps. Hardly played and not very easy to look at. I dont see us creating it at any point.

Custom Maps ---- Stay Tuned
We have also explored maps from other games that we thought may fit our project from games like COD:FH and Medal of Honor Frontline. Ultimately we didnt find anything we needed to be there. We have other ambitions, we like the idea but right now it will have to wait. If anyone feels ambitions we would love your contributions.

Weapon sets: We are still unsure exactly what we will do with this it all depends on how many gun models we decide to make. I can pretty much say Duelist, Rifles and Infantry will be in there anything that uses those weapons. Thompsons and BARs will probably be in potentially a sten. Again time will tell. t11 t99 not sure. Bazooka will be out. Possibility for other guns is there but we will see. Frags will be in as for Smoke they will have to be different then the absurdity that was from MOH may go with no nade mode or something we will see.

Game modes: DM and TDM I would love to explore elimination modes and 3rd person play but for right now just two.

Side note we hope to be fully functional with PS4 controllers and/or XBOX controllers.

Hello I would just like to say thank you for continuing your support of this mod. I'm very excited in the steps we have taken the last few months. There have been many challenges and a lot of successes. Just wanted to give an update on where we are right now. So as it seems we've gotten some guns into our game and are working on them right now. Been having some issues of course, if anyone out there can animate in XSI we could always use some help with the Welrod reload and the melee attacks. We would love to hear from anyone who can help us out with that. If not we will strive to perfect it. As of right now we still only have the two maps. However we are going to be revealing Death In the Orient very soon so please come and check it out. Right now we may release with 4 maps possibly 5. The other maps will be released after we can put something playable out. Idol Assault will be next in line and that looks to be the most challenging one after that will come Hangar Havoc. Then the remaining Boxcar and Battleships maps. Solomon Showdown is looking less likely unless we do some serious changes. As we said before we will not be making Marauders at Midnight. I promise to update this page much more frequently....stay tuned!

Hey man, so far I'm liking the idea of your mod. I hate seeing Medal of Honor dead just because it strayed so far from its roots. So I like seeing other people who still think that Medal of Honor has potential. I just have two questions; is your HUD going to be the same as Rising Sun's, and are you guys still working on it?

This is amazing. Medal of Honor: Rising Sun was one of the greatest games of my childhood. I wish you the best of luck in developing this mod.
