A historic-themed Rats project, originally for Source engine, new port coming to Unreal 4. New features coming: Enemy NPCs such as pests & pets - Fully interactive objects - Better transportation/vehicles; Gliders, better ropes, mine carts, zip wires - More detailed environment; no more blocky brushes, no more vertex lit MDLs, no more crappy collision.

There is also a Discord server & a Twitch stream.

This is the release of Version 5.3 for Pirates, Vikings and Knights II.
Previously, the only release for PVKII was Version 4.0.
This is slightly more updated (and of course different) than Version 5.3 for CSS.

I may do an updated release for Source engine again, but I'm focusing on porting the map into Unreal 4 engine, so that it can get a modern facelift. I'm a better 3D modeler these days, but I also learnt to code, and UE4 provides more freedom than Source SDK modding. Source still doesn't support lightmapping for models, and collision is terrible.

Download:
Moddb.com

And finally, testing code and engine features in Unreal 4.
These videos are from end of last year when I started writing my own code for the first time & were originally intended for sharing with other students, so the graphics part are not polished (I still have to port all the materials & textures)

Can also join me on Discord for more frequent updates:

Oh boy, this map would be so awesome in CS:GO. Hopefully you find some day the time to finish this great map up.

Truthfully I'm really sick of Source engine.
I was considering continuing this map in the new Unreal Tournament, Unreal 4 engine. Making things run and still look good in Source is 10x more work.

Where can I get the Nmrih version of this map?

I didn't release it yet. I had plans to, but became too busy with greater priorities and then forgot entirely. I'll release it as soon as I can. For now try the CSS 5.3.3 version to make sure it runs fine for you, cause that is basically what NMRIH will be using.

Well there ARE separate sections for CSS and Half-Life 2 on Moddb.

And you for some reason put it in Half-Life 2...
And this is clearly a CSS mod...

This profile was created before a "CSS mod" option existed.

"Can people read anymore?..."
IF you bothered to view the downloads section, you'd find a release for PVKII and Battle-Grounds 2. This is not a CSS mod.

Clearly you are a very unhappy person to come on here and vote down my comments as well as insult me by implying my reading comprehension is lacking;
When clearly it is yours that is lacking.
Go bother someone else, or better yet, do something more productive with your time.
