Brotherhood Rising is a mod detailing the rise of the Brotherhood of Nod. Not from its infancy in the BC times, but in modern times when the Brotherhood was revealed shortly after World War II (Red Alert) and slowly became a force to be reckoned with. The Brotherhood bombed key locations, such as the Grain Trade Center for example. It had the highest stock in Tiberium trade since the first meteor struck near the Tiber River. Tensions grew high around the world and the Free World held its breath as the United Nations' sanctioned Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood began clashing in Africa and Estonia, and soon the world was engulfed in what would become the First Tiberium War.
There are many sects within the Brotherhood vying for control and fighting to gain favor of Kane, the Messiah, the one to lead the people into their Tiberium future, into Ascension, and to crush their GDI oppressors. One specific sect, the Followers of Kane, competes with the Black Hand, to get into the spotlight as Kane's favorite and most valuable group to eventually ascend into greatness.
Once the First Tiberium War ended, with Shepard and Solomon celebrating their victory with the supposed death of Kane from the power of GDI's space based, orbital Ion Cannon, the very brutal Reunification War begins soon after as once loyal members such as Hassan becomes a GDI lackey controlled by Solomon, and arch enemy to the forever and fiercely fanatical Anton Slavik, and other supposed Nod leaders wanting to "reunite" the Brotherhood under one banner and proposing prosperity under a web of lies and deceit from their own greed and lust for power.
And this is where this mod is open-ended and open to interpretation by anyone who wants to make missions for it. It's not completed and still under construction and I am going to be making the Arma 3 version soon and converting a lot of this to Arma 3 standards, however I am getting help from *certain famous members of the community* on some things and I think we should be okay on that front. Kane lives! For the technology of peace! Peace through power!
Just when we thought Macser was done modeling for the mod, mainly from lack of time and concentration in other projects, along with his graphics card going belly up, he came back to me with a new surprise!
Modeled after the M2 Bradley IFV, he made a Brotherhood of Nod specific Bradley for the mod! He got it into game and it just looks marvelous.
This is going to replace the model I've been using, which is a re-skinned BIS model. I really love this model he made and it looks great in-game! Here's to hoping there are more models in the future (still need a team to help me out).
As always... PEACE. THROUGH. POWER!
This fixes the version to be compatible with Operation Flashpoint 1.96. I changed it from 1.99 (CWA) to simply 1.9 (1.96 and sooner), for those who play...
This is considered a demo rather than a "full" release, because it's still in beta.
