Report article RSS Feed Modular Combat 2.0.0 RELEASED

With strength born from 2 hours of sleep per night, missed homework deadlines, and over 9000 cups of coffee.. Mod Fidelity brings you Modular Combat 2.0.0!

Posted by matthewdryden on Jul 8th, 2010

It's finally here!

This has been a long time coming. Almost a year ago, v2.0 was a vague idea in our heads. We knew what we wanted to put into the game, but it was a vague idea. We worked for 6-8 months on v1.77, and with every day, v2.0 seemed to slip further and further away.

Back to Basics: Modular Combat 2.0.0
The extra .0 stands for everything we've always wanted to do with Modular Combat, but we always kept getting ahead of ourselves. Yeah, we scrapped all the changes we made in the last year... BUT DON'T WORRY. Bit by bit, we will adding them back in and getting your feedback as we go along.

Here are 2.0.0's changes:

  • New maps: dm_backbone, dm_datacore, dm_deadtrack
  • Scoreboard now shows current map & gamemode
  • Fixed teleport blockers
  • Aperture faction buff now gives auxilary power instead of armor regeneration
  • Module: Flechette. Fire a burst of hunter darts.
  • Completely rewrote suit storage code. All account and suit information is now stored by SQL. Player databases now handle different version of Modular Combat, meaning that server owners won't need to reset their servers ever again.
  • Players now get experience for monsters that they damaged that are killed by other monsters
  • Various UI updates and changes

Mod Fidelity

We have a module for that.

(Special thanks to the Overgrowth team and Iiro Jäppinen for providing these nice icons!)

Wow, no offence but I thought by the last media post that it would take another month or so for a new release, but now this just made my day (or week). Great job Mod Fidelity team.

You can play without Ep2, but you will see ERROR-s.

The server you were playing on probably had not updated to version 2.0.0 and hence did not save 2.0.0 character data correctly.

Awesome stuff, first time I really got to play this, was alot of fun :D

I chose my suit to have 50 armor max though and when using the suit rechargers they would reset it to ~35 and start charging me again, never reaching 50 and the mega charger could charge me to 50(overcharge of 50 or oversight?)

All in all, great mod, keep on updating it!

DuckSauce Jul 9 2010, 2:02pm replied:

Seems I can't go over 37 armor to be exact when my max armor is 50.
Additonaly, swapping to a 0 in the clip 10 ammo reserve SMG due to the ammo regen when I'm clubbing someone/something can be really annoying, there seems to be no way to turn this auto swap off. Would be nice if that could be disabled in a future version.

Further intel, seems the armor regen buggers my armor amount, it stops regen at 37 and it resets it to 37 after using a recharger and going over that. The battery packages however don't cause this reset either.

I've also noticed an extreme annoying push from teammates, resulting in being unable to sprint properly if they're in front of you(they push you back), why not simply dissalow team mates to collide complete and remove the push. Would have been easier to code too :P

The Armour Regen is a bug that should be fixed in the next version.
The ammo regen autoswap is another bug I just added to the queue.
That push is in the orange box collision code. We have not modified it.

Modular Combat requires The Orange Box (Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch) + Source SDK Base – Orange Box to play.

Is there any way to simplify that? I don't have hl2:ep2...

mOoEyThEcOw Jul 13 2010, 5:56pm replied:

We have updated our site since, also, no there is not, hl2:ep2 is where we draw many of our models, textures, and particle effects. So if you play mod com with out hl2:ep2 you will have a couple of missing models, displayed as giant 'error' blocks.

Our aim, for the moment, is to be an orange box mod.

Ok loving that this mod is still being looked after but one thing that dissapoints me in 2.0.0 why did the module called resistance(the one that has you take less damage per hit) have to be taken from me i had my ultimate PvM character thanks to that module now i die in two hits
