Post news RSS BF40K to merge with UT40K

Due to lack of interest from my last post to the public I have searched for another mod team to donate the BF40K artistic assets to.

Posted by on

Due to the lack of interest from my last news post requesting volunteers the mod will now be merging with UT40K.

This is the only viable way that I can see the mod continuing and not see the artwork that was created over a 3 year period go to waste.

Sadly no-one took up the offer of finishing BF40K from my last news post on here, BF40K website and BF Editor.org.

BF40K was very close to completion and only required coding and testing for infantry only.
With additional help from artists the vehicles could of been finished off and included later.

I was set to release the BF40K:BF2 0.98 alpha to generate interest but due to objection from our sound developers I ceased this action.

It is not all bad news, with the Unreal Development Kit mods can now be published independantly in their own executable. Meaning to fans you do not need to own Unreal Tornament 3 to play the mod.

Geodave releases monthly updates to his build on ModDB.

You can find his page here:

Moddb.com

If there are any UDK modders out there we would definately appreciate your help.

I don't think it was a lack of interest, I think it was a lack of skilled coders. I'm a modeler for my own mod, and I can tell you that **** is damned hard. Coding requires a patience that is beyond me. Don't lose hope, just persevere, and things will pull through.

My last coder was moving house and I had not heard from him since early March. I know he had some major complications. Without him I cannot get the 2142 edition finished. Our BF2 coder left the mod last year.

If you need someone testing the Mod, I could do this. You mentioned Infantry Only Testers. That's no Problem for Me. Unfortunately I'm no Coder or anything close to that. But I'm afraid this comes too late...

Well all work has ceased now on the BF mod I had no other choice with the last skilled coder not present.

As said, Geodave releases public monthly Unreal Development Kit builds that require you to not own any game to test as it is fully independant and will run on its own.

It is available to download now. Can test that and provide feedback pls.

you cant even put out a small beta? like one map to 3 maps? i know there is a beta for '42 but a lot people have bf2 also, anyway i hope you could give a small beta like one map for marines vs guard(like in Kronus where they battled each other), one map of marines vs tau, and one map for tau and guard.Maybe one map for all but that might not turn out well. Anyway, it is sad this mod never got completed, i do hope you or someone else might restart the mod.Sad that the BF40k had to end,anyway, you had a great run and i hope UT40k turns out well even though i don't have that game and that they deleted the download for the people without it.In short, Noooooooooo.

Small question, can you actually release the stuff you have so far?
I am the coder, and I feel the great lack of any kinds of custom models for my personal mod.
