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.

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.

  • Major experience with C++ and how the source-engine works together with it. (previous work on mods for Source is a huge plus)
  • That you have enough time for this project.
  • Being able to communicate with the rest of the team and actively shaping the game from discussions and solutions we come up with.
  • Working with progress-docs and updating them as you make changes.
  • Being creative!

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

You need to look at the top of the page and go to the downloads section. From there download WW1 Source 1.13. Once it downloads (it is in installer), run it and set the path to (your steamapps folder) / sourcemods (need to make the "sourcemods" folder yourself if you dont already have one).

After it installs, RESTART STEAM!!!! Then head in game and search servers.

- You WILL NOT be able to see WW1 Source servers from your desktop, you need to be in game to search servers thanks to a Steam update back in FEB.

If you have any more problems reply back here. Your not the only one who is finding playing Sourcemods more and more difficult!

And join this steam group, we will start gearing up and hosting some large events in a few weeks:

You need a Half Life 2 game installed in order to play it. That can be DODS, TF2, CSS or HL2 itself. I would assume a pirated copy could work, seeing its the files that are needed, not the actual game. If you have one of these installed, check your library - tools - source sdk 2007 to ensure that it is installed. If it is not, install it and try WW1 Source again.

Expect some daily/weekly activity in game starting on August 1st all the way until the release of 2.0. Got a lot of returning groups to get the community back on it's feet.

I will be bringing my box of goodies (free games) with me as usual to help add fuel to the fire and jump start the community once again.

So if you have yet to have the chance to battle in 30-64 man servers, trust me, you do NOT want to miss out! Thats when the game truly shines.

We are also adding in a Zombie mod and/or NPC's for new type of events. Its going to be fun!

WW1 is one of those wars I've always had an interest in. Tragic stuff, and its great to see you guys paying such an excellent homage to it all. Keep it up. I keenly look forward to storming Beaumont Hamel, Passchendaele, and all those other infamous locales.

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…
