The download is ready and should work now. Enjoy!
The mod is complete! Finally, after years of hard work, it's done!
NOTE: This project was originally for COD2 and WW2 era but because of the improvement in coding and background for the COD system, I transferred to COD4. I may go back and continue with WW2 but I may not. I love WW2.
This is a hobby but I like to share my work.
A quick synopsis from one of my voice actors, I couldn't have said it better myself. This sums up the backstory and the current (spoilers):
"There was a private military group, named SET that got picked up by the UN and believe that there is a terrorist group still active in Iraq even though they aren't leading Iraq, but no one believes them because Iraq is an ally. So they do undercover missions to try and snuff out the terrorist and when they catch him they find out that he got so far because of a traitor."
A fictional leader, Al-Kab-Dir, wants war on the friendly nations, the US, Britain and Russia. The friendly nations, have declared war on Iraq first. This is pre-WW3.
Heroes 7 strives to be realistic and may be a simulator in ARMA. There are some unrealistic events but Heroes 7 always have that sense of realism, especially when there are squads, huge teams, covers, battlechatter, evading difficult situations instead of going through it. Heroes 7 always going to have teammates unlike the later Modern Warfare game where only 2 "heroes" having super health and taking out everyone. We all know war isn't fought or won with 2 people. Even though part 4 and 5 is based on two people, there'll always going to be teammates or resistance in part 5.
A special forces group belongs to Special Elite Task (S.E.T) organization and is tasked to scout out a city for the main invasion or so it seems. This organization consists of many groups of soldiers, such as U.S. Army Rangers, Airborne, S.A.S, etc. This group is very diverse and is the largest ethnic organization. It is a global defense headquarters.
The special forces group consists of 8 soldiers called the "Heroes", famously known as "Heroes 7". They are in Squad 5 "Forward Strike". One of them is Colonel Markens, but since he died early, I didn't consider him a "hero" and he was technically an enemy before. Teaser! There are a few other squads supporting too for the invasion. However, everyone is a hero, it is a Company of Heroes.
Was it really a scout/recon mission or was it a suicide mission? Find out.
Heroes 7 spans over 20 days in July. Preparation for war starts on July 1. Training is on the 10th.
Day 1: Declaring war on Al-Kab-Dir
Day 2-9: Getting troops to deploy in England for training.
Day 10-13: Training (Part 1)
Day 14: Deploying in Iraq. Fighting on the road to Al-Kab-Dir city. (Part 1)
Day 15-18: Fighting
Day 19: Al-Kab-Dir uptown invasion (Part 3)
Day 20 - D-Day: Grand assault/invasion on Al-Kab-Dir city and harbor.
Day 27: Prisoner of War and Brothers (Part 2 and 4) - Make decisions to result in 2 different endings.
Day 66: WW3
Day 73: New York City Invasion - War at Home (Part 5) - Your Part 4 decisions/ending carries forward to part 5 (you may be able to reverse/change the consequences by making the other decision in Part 5) Make decisions to result in 2 different endings. Both endings are canonical but there is no next series/parts. 2 official endings to end the series.
After eliminating Al-Kab-Dir and getting ready to be evacuated from the area, Heroes 7 and squad mates' ride were shot down. They crashed into an unknown part the desert. Al-Kab-Dir's forces were in the area, or Al-Kab-Dir junior should I say, were in the area. Heroes 7 found a nearby jeep and decides to ride their way out when the enemies started firing on them. Captain Seewin fought with Al-Kab-Dir Junior while Heroes 7 tries to escape. However, they couldn't leave him, so they went back and try to rescue him. The enemies were too many and Heroes 7 were outnumbered. All of the teammates were presumably dead but a couple made out alive but still horrifying. Al-Kab-Dir captured the player and Captain Seewin.
Part 2 is "The Great Escape". Takes place a week after the event of part 1. The player and the Captain has been taken hostage as their entire team has been wiped out, as it "seems". They are on their own and has to escape the prison. Little do they know, they are at the heart of a war factory. Two groups are inserted to assault the factory but as it appears, they encounter the player and the Captain. The player and the the Captain are able to escape back to friendlies to avoid further complications.
Starting with part 4, the title changes since it is no longer Heroes 7. Everyone dies. :( Except the player and the Captain. Part 4 and 5 is called "Brothers" (literally). (All made up and not copied from real life)
Part 4 takes place on the same day of "The Great Escape" part 2.
Part 5 takes place less than a month and half after part 4. The allies are stationed in New York. Enemy counter attack. And the player and the Captain are considered "rogue". Friendly allies would target them but there are some "resistance" supporting them. An all out warfare between the allies, enemies and resistance. Find out what happens to the player and the Captain. An epic ending to the series. This is WW3.
Now, not every characters/teammates from Heroes 7 are deceased. ;) Find out who survives the devastation back at the desert. Still depressing, b/c most were killed. :( Heroes 7 salutes!
There are 5 parts to Heroes 7.
Heroes 7 Part 1 (outside the city and inside the city)
Heroes 7 Part 2 "The Great Escape" (Prison)
Heroes 7 Part 3 "Fall of Man" (Part prequel, part sequel, outskirt of city to inside of city)
Heroes 7 Part 4 Brothers "Endgame" (Find out who the traitor is and make your decision)
heroes 7 Part 5 "Checkmate" Homefront - War at Home (Epic ending to the series/story.)
Word of Dedication:
So much have happened every day and continue to happen.
I dedicate the mod to all the men and women that sacrifices their lives to save others, whether regular people or service men and women, dead and alive, past, present and future. Thanks for your generosity.
I also dedicate this mod to a friend whom I hardly knew but my brother does. I have spoken to him, not much, but we are all friends. He had an illness but thought he would recover. He's so young. His recent passing came as a shock to us all. Especially to me, he was only 1 year younger than me. Although, it was expected but we had the hope that he would make it. It's sad and difficult to see a young man go. This mod is dedicated to all people that sacrifice their lives and to him. We should cherish everyone when we have the time. Salute! This mod is dedicated to their names.
I have finally finalized the mod to re-release it a second time. Heroes 7 2.0!
Bugs and gamebreaking bugs are fixed, for the most part. Levels have been redone as well.
This is the final release of Heroes 7 2.0.
This is the release of Heroes 7 Mod 2.0. It contains all the files needed to play. It includes all the missions, sound, videos, and the mod itself.
An auto-updater is complicated to setup at the moment to setup. If I ever make one in the future, it would be a separate application. And it may be a .bat or any form of script file to keep things simple.
You could also go here to fetch the latest files currently but you'll have to manually place them in the Call of Duty 4 folder. Check the update.txt file for the date.
Be sure to read the readme for more information.
The mod has been revised. See changelog below. It also contains a custom main menu so it is easier to load the levels. You can create a new profile and start a new game.
- Heroes 7 Part 1 has been redone but you can also play the original version from the Mission Selection screen.
- Heroes 7 Part 2 has a slight tweak. No major changes have been done.
- Heroes 7 Part 3 Prologue has a slight tweak. Player now has to press the trigger to sleep to avoid accidental triggering.
- Heroes 7 Part 3 Episode 1 setup defense time has decreased. Tweaked the level a bit. Included the end-of-mission-credits in level.
- Part 3 Episode 2 has been reworked to some extend due to lost files. Should be mostly the same.
- Part 3 Episode 3 has slight modifications.
- Part 3 Episode 6 Harbordam has been redone to break an unplayablilty when entering the city. RTS mode is no longer forced. Also shortened defense time at the town square. Added additional savepoints.
- Part 3 Episode 6 D-Day has slight modifications. One additional airstrike to coincide with the Harbordam level.
- Part 3 Episode 6 A Bridge Too Far has been revised so helicopter gameplay is no longer forced. Fixed a critical blockage when trying to access the bonus ending. Other tweaks applied.
- Part 4 Episode 1 Yesterday has added additional savepoints mainly near the beginning of the level.
- Part 5 has removed a gamebreaking bug after the helicopter scene. There was no sound. Helicopter scene has been removed and is a standalone mission. The bad ending now exits the level.
- Added in some bonus maps including a helicopter training mission. It is also the standalone helicopter mission from Part 5.
- A few other tweaks and fixes have been applied.
A shortcut has been created. Locate the shortcut in the Call of Duty 4 root folder and place it on the desktop. Change the target and start in file location in the properties to the Call of Duty 4 folder. Or create a new shortcut of the iw3sp.exe. Copy the parameters over from the already created shortcut. These are the parameters: +seta fs_game mods/Heroes 7 +seta sv_cheats 1 + seta thereisacow 1337
Cheats are optional but the fs_game parameter is most important to run the mod.
Should you have any questions or comments, please post on the mod page at Moddb.com.
