Happy New Year Troopers!

Section 3 hopes you all had a happy and safe Solar New Year!
UrbanHolland


I will first begin by thanking all of our watchers and fans who voted for us in the ModDB 2016 mod awards!

Being billed in the Top 100 mods of this massive and talented site is quite the honor, one we owe in no small part, to your unwavering support and encouragement!

You all deserve a round of applause through text [INSERT APPLAUSE].


It’s now 2017, and in the spirit of the new year and resolutions, we’ve decided to share with you a little about some of our project goals for this year!

Please keep in mind, that (like actual NYE resolutions), these aren’t commitments or promises, and they’re subject to change.

But these are things we’d like to achieve this year, and what we’ll strive to complete!


1. The Winter Contingency Demo:


We’ve talked about it, there have been many questions about it, and we know how much you all want it.

With our full release date still pending, we don’t wish to keep you on edge til whenever that will be.

To that end, we will endeavour to create a standalone demo that will include some basic content and a replayable mission that will tide you over.

We know that many of you are running other mods and or your own content, and so we don’t want to break anyone’s game or negatively affect your existing game experience.

For that reason, our demo will refrain from modifying the core files, and we will try to keep the gameplay as close to the vanilla content as possible (but still delivering cool new assets and toys for you to play with)


2. Vehicles:


Yes, Winter Contingency is still lagging on the vehicle front.

But we’re pleased to announce that we’ve made advances here over last year.

We’ve graduated from: “having no idea how to export vehicles”,
To: “we have no idea why the treads are moving the wrong way”.

Rest assured, we have things well in hand, and we’re hoping to showcase more tangible progress with vehicles this year!

3. The Spartan Project:


Our little-big reveal this past year was our completion of the first spartans for Winter Contingency!

It took a significant amount of time, but we now have a solid start on integrating everyone’s favorite Non-Warhammer, superhuman xeno slayers.

At present we have a single, male, Mark V armor set, with functioning energy shields and fx!

For 2017, our goal is to:

  • Implement complete MJOLNIR armor sets for both Male and Female spartans
  • Create custom voice sets for spartans
  • Include special armor abilities for spartans, including Active Camo, Bubble Shields, and Armor Lock
  • Special weapons created specifically for spartans
  • Unique Spartan II and III types, which will offer different advantages

4. New Branch: UNSC Airborne Infantry:


A unique subset of UNSC soldiers will be produced, featuring unique weapons, models, and missions.


Our friend Ishi, from gmod, has agreed to let us make use of his excellent weapon models, which we look forward to introducing to our existing armories!



These are some of the major goals we have for this year, and what we’ll be striving towards making!

Again, bear in mind that we can make no promises. At the end of the day, we’re still human, and subject to the whims of fate. Maybe one of us will be horribly maimed by a loose tiger, that might set us back.

We will continue to publish Section 3 updates throughout the year. I’m hoping to feature some UNSC forces for our upcoming update. In the meantime, thank you all for your continued support. Your comments and questions delivered to our page sustains our efforts through the most dreary of times.

Stay tuned, and we’ll hopefully be back with a new Section 3 update!

The Jackals are relatively complete, I just want to add some more things to them before showing them off. They hold shields with all sorts of different animations and aim properly with any weapon their using. We don't have any plans to use any Halo 2 Anniversary character models in this mod. Though, down the line, in the far, distance future, we might make Halo content for other eras.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! *Turns to an excited Grunt*
Also care to elaborate on the project or is it classified for now?
Also if making a campaign, how many missions you plan on doing? And will there be missions for all fractions (UNSC, Insurrectionist, Covenant)?

Hi i am new here and i saw this amazing mod how could one get it, when i said "New" i meant i haven't been on here for quite some time and i would like to get this mod. Uh the reasons for wanting this mod is to see how Halo Reach marine's fair against Clone trooper's and USM's. :D
Also is this really for MoWaS1 or 2?

Considering that Galaxy at War and Winter Contingency are two separate mods with (mostly) different developers, they're probably not balanced for one another gameplay wise.

I will say from personal experience that GaW units are hilariously underpowered when used against other mods. They have low health and damage, which is unfortunately necessary for a game like Men of War that doesn't properly simulate effective use of semi-auto weapons.

Hey if one was to be stuck with the plasma grenade, would the other units attempt to get away from that unit?

in normal mow the units next to a grenade will run away and dive, so since how its programming should be like a grenade it should happen

It's an older mod of λpone, it's not WC.
