So here it is the next release of WWI Source First of all I would like to thanks all the players that have kept the WWI Source community alive over the...
WWI Source: Fight in the rain soaked trenches or charge over No Man’s Land to battle in the War to End All Wars. Use authentic weaponry to conquer the enemy, call in artillery strikes to take out enemies en masse, or use chemical warfare to disable your opponents! WWI Source is the first and only World War I game to be developed for Steam. All the current WWI mod teams (‘The Trenches 2’, ‘Fields of Horror’, ‘WWI Source’) have united to develop the best World War I game to the Steam community, using the latest Source engine. Please visit the official website for more information on WWI Source and the team.
Hi there, WWI: Source Dev team reporting in;
There's nothing new and fancy (well, other than a pair of screenshots) being posted in this news-update, we simply need to tell you that we're still in need of coders to finish this thing. Without a coder it's all going to be a stand-still for us. Actually I'm not exaggerating if I say the mod will most likely have to be put down if we can't find a willing individual. While most of the art is done, this means nothing when we don't have that individual who can put it all together ingame. If you are experienced with C++ and have knowledge of the source-engine or know someone who might be, contact me (ashton93) as soon as possible here on MoDDb. Here are some requirements we listed for the job back in November, unfortunately we didnt get any applicants back then. Hopefully that will change this time.
Perhaps this will encourage all of you mildly or very interested coders out there looking for some work, if so do as I told you and contact me (ashton93) here on this site. I will give you details on your work after that has been done
We're still really close, but this is impossible without that one guy who can do some magic on our codebase.
We're not really the type of guys who leaves you all empty-handed. Here's a recent screenshot of a German Bomber getting ready to toss a Stielhandgranate in Longueval, Delville Wood.
And another shot of the forest in the same map
Over and out,
Ashton and the WWI: Source Developer team

I don't mean to bring you down, but I found this mod pretty dreadful in its current state. Your attempt at realism by forcing the player to "pull the bolt" every time you shoot is annoying but I guess some people will like it. The Officers' ability to drop toxic gas and artilery is terrible. It's very frustrating to get killed randomly, and it adds nothing of value to the gameplay. The biggest problem I had when playing was really the red effect when you get hit. It paints nearly your entire screen…
