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

Not until 2.0 is released. They are adamant about that. I have been trying for a long time now lol. Even offering to help financially. They just don't want to display a "beta" product (even though 2.0 will be free so don't take "product" out of terms)

I just want to say that, The 3rd Marines used to be a great group, and I loved it and played tons of it, but over the past few months, they started to act like children, they kick people for no reason, they get mad easily all of a sudden and cant take really light jokes, and i'm wondering what had happened since I last played with the 3rd Marines, any one have any ideas?

Give us some time, I kept that group under a iron fist for three years as it's leader. The new leaders are just getting into the swing of things and the improvements have been very noticeable. I am willing to bet that by 2014 you will see a new and improved 3rd Marines over even that of the old days.

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…
