RSS FeReise and warrior300's COD WAW overhaul mods for AUTHENTICITY

Posted by on

I, FeReise and my modder friend, warrior300 have created a pack of overhaul mods for Call of Duty World at War's Campaign and Co-op. We aimed to increase the element of AUTHENTICITY into the game, and we really hope these mods should be able to provide you the gaming experiences even better than the vanilla version.

However, let me explain something first. Although I really want to see more of the historical and educational content in future video games, that doesn't mean I expect it to be 100% accurate. Due to the fact that it was NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE indeed to create the historical-based games with fully corrected historical details on them. Mainly because of the limited time, lack of information and insufficient research, gameplay, budgets, interference of publishers and the third parties, also present days political agenda and etc. Thus, I don't really want to be so serious with the details, just only 70-80% accuracy is fine enough for my expectation of the historical accuracy of videogames.

But the problem is, a certain amount of historical-based games were made so poorly, so many mistakes had been found and some of them are totally unacceptable. Just for my favorite here alone, Call of Duty World at War, I can only give the accuracy rate for (as estimate) 40%! (Well, I've already made my own articles about it, you guys can check them out from here: Moddb.com) And that's the main reason why we created these mods for you guys who really interested in the authenticity stuff. But due to the few amounts of original 'vanilla' materials provided by Treyarch, large scale mistakes that we have no idea how to fix them yet (like maps and environments), and some other technical problems while we were modding. So, I'm afraid its accuracy still not reached a satisfying level as I want it to be, but at least that what we can do for now.


In order to play for the best historical experience:

'Semper Fi' (mission 1) = The updated Pacific Theater 1.6 version with "zzz_IJN" and "zzz_USmakinhelmet" texture mods: Moddb.com

'Little Resistance ~ Vendetta' (mission 2-4) = Vendetta: Darkest Days 2.2 version -> Moddb.com

'Their Land Their Blood ~ Blood and Iron' (mission 5-8) = Fall of Berlin mod 3.4 version -> Moddb.com

'Ring of Steel' (mission 9) = Either Fall of Berlin 3.4 or Ring of Steel: Abandon all hope 1.3 version' -> Moddb.com

'Eviction ~ Downfall' (mission 10-15) = Fall of Berlin mod 3.4 version with Kriegsmarine Naval Infantry texture mod (inside 'For Heart of the Reich and Downfall' folder).
