What is "Against the Rising Sun"? It is a mod for "Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30". The mod will be split into campaigns, with the Australian campaign in Papua being released first. The main focus of the mod is the fighting in the pacific against Japan during the Second World War. Who do we play as? In the first campaign, you will play as an Australian digger, fighting along the Kokoda trail, Milne Bay and the battle of the beach-head during mid 1942 to early 1943. Other campaigns will include the "Chindits" during operation Thursday in Burma, the 3rd New Zealand Division fighting on Vella Lavella, Green Island and Treasury Island, and a continued Australian campaign in New Guinea, Bougainville and Borneo. What will be so special with this mod? Historical accuracy and realism are the key features. Alot of research is being done all the time to ensure every aspect is historically accurate. At the time of writing, the "Lithgow Small Arms Museum"...

Originally a mod for Brothers in Arms, Against the Rising Sun is now for the upcoming game Armed Assault (made by the developers of Operation Flashpoint and VBS-1).

"Interactive documentary" is the goal of the mod. Currently, the Lithgow Small Arms Museum and Australian War Memorial are both helping out to make every aspect of the mod as historically accurate as possible. A big thanks goes to Lithgow Small Arms who provided me with detailed pictures of the Australian designed and made Owen Gun - this is perhaps the first time the Owen Gun will appear in a computer game correctly modelled and with the correct camo paint job.

Here is a work in progress shot, rendered in 3ds max.

A work in progress shot of the Owen Gun in "buldozer" (the modelling program for OFP, which will also be used for Armed Assault) can be viewed in the image gallery. Several other WIP's can be viewed on the website.
