Crysis Wars EX?
This is the first time you hear about Crysis Wars EX? Then let me introduce you to the world of EX. It all started in a small forum where people from the community founded the Online Modding Group. During the next weeks they were working on schedules and feature lists to define the clear content of the project and ended up with 5 pages full of features and improvements and some weeks later the project got the name CRYSIS WARS EX(TENDED).
EX describes everything we do in one word. Our goal is to deliver more content to the community and improve the game together with all of you to make it a great Multiplayer experience.
Version 1.0 – Let´s get it started!
We are starting with the first version pretty soon. Of course we will keep improving the game after the release of 1.0 and will add new features to it.

Meet the OMG! Team: Vert-X
Welcome in the “Meet the OMG Team” section where we will introduce you to the different members of the Online Modding Group. It is always exciting to know more about the people that work on something you play and therefore we thought it might be a good addition to our regular updates. This week we start with our Lead Artist Patrick "Vert-X" Laferl:
Hello fellow modders, My name is Patrick "Vert-X" Laferl and I live in Austria. I am leading the Art Department of OMG! which keeps me pretty busy. My job is to model all kinds of assets and control the quality of the other artist´s work. My weapon of choice is 3DS Max which I am using for approximately 4 years now and I would describe myself as a good modeler. Of course I want to do something useful with my skills and that is one of the reasons why I joined OMG! Improving a game is a great experience and I am happy to work and do progress with my teammates. My current work, a whole-new weapon for Crysis Wars EX, demonstrates how well we work together. We are a friendly bunch of modders, that makes modding great fun and I am looking forward to our MOD.
