It dawned on me that we have yet to truly update our ModDB to reflect our current progress...
Thanks in large part to permissions received from the Eastern Front Mod, we have been working on N44 v2.0 which WILL include the Soviets.
It will have all the current factions that are in v1.7, but they will all be expanded into a new faction/doctrine/sub-doctrine/sub-subdoctrine system. As an example, if you choose the US "Infantry" doctrine (which is called the "Omaha and Utah Beach Doctrine" in v2.0), you will then choose either the 1st or 4th infantry division as a "sub-doctrine". You will be able to then build units from either of those two divisions. From there, you can also choose a "sub-subdoctrine", which will be either more specialized units from that division, or other units attached to that division (as an example one of the sub-subdoctrines of the 1st ID is the 2nd Ranger Batt/29th Infantry division). Each doctrine, sub, and sub-sub is unique with their own strengths and weaknesses.
And, as stated, the Soviet Union will be added, and will be designed in the same manner as an ENTIRELY NEW 5th faction.
All in all it will be a much deeper experience and over 50 new models added plus ALL the models and skins from the Eastern Front Mod (thanks again to them :) ).
Coding should be ready for alpha testing relatively soon (you know we won't give dates ;) ) and as we put in the finished new models we will be able to start a Beta (it won't be soon but I hope to update often).
And, as stated in previous news, a HUGE thank you to Men of War (and all it's developers),
especially 1C, the members of the German Soldiers Mod, and the members
of the Dynamic Campaign Generator Mod, for allowing us to use some of
their models and textures!!! They were VERY kind to allow us
the use of their models!!! And this will certainly speed up the process of getting in new models.
Stay tuned :)
