A mod that mixes the tactics of TFC with the realism from CS/DoD. Set in 2023, advanced weaponry creates the ultimate war. Well balanced classes that support each other work together to control flags around the map, no waiting for capture to keep you on your toes! Desert setting in maps is accomplished through excellent use of textures and design.

Take up the fight of either the CODE or AIM soon!

"The desert heat scorches your soul, War is HELL!"

2 comments by Zacker_lvldsnr on Apr 16th, 2006

Our final version of Sands of War 1.6 is now public available! We finished it some weeks ago, but we were too busy with the SoW2 beta 1.1 release back then. You can download it right away from our download section.

This is the end of a long era which was started several years ago by some creative guys who set out to develop a mod. Many doubted that we would finish the mod, but so we did. We did not just release it, we kept on improving it and releasing new versions. The final version, SoW 1.6, is now ready.

As SoW1 is now done, all crew members will focus their time on SoW2. Just as with SoW1 we will continue to improve SoW2 based on the feedback from the community. In our next news post you will get to see a nice remake of one of the old popular SoW1 maps.

Our download page looks a little weird, but everything is working.

When we first started the mod waaay back when most of my playing time was in TFC. In TFC soilders could use RPG or grenades to launch themselves up onto a roof. Not very realistic, from what I saw CS wouldnt allow you to do those at it aimed at realism and for its time it was.
When I first came up with the idea of the mod it was to blend TFC, CS and DOD and make it like ToD but set in the desert and not in the jungle.
Zacker did an amazing job as did his mod team after I left taking it to levels we hoped for. But the mod always seemed to trail behind the curve since it got a late start.
Some maps that may or not be in 1.6 that were in earlier versions were pretty awesome. Anyway if you have never treid to make a mod it is 50 times harder then making a map. And making a great map is 50 times harder then pubbing or even playing in league matchs.
