News Update - 101107
First off I'd like to apologise for not posting any news since the release.
Basically since the release of 0.1 I've pretty much fixed most of the obvious coding bugs that I've listed on the forums.
I've still got to sort out some of the cosmetic bugs such as opening doors and chimney smoke fx.

When all of that's done I'm not sure if I should make a missile launcher team or perhaps a Leman Russ, but I'm leaning toward the launcher team,
feel free to post any ideas on the forum as it's a bit quiet these days. After that I'm gonna start on the Chaos faction, I've already got one building
modelled and I've got a good idea of what vehicles they should get in order to counter the Imperial Guard. Their infantry will probably be pretty easy
to do since I can just use the Guardsmen and chaosify them,
add a little blood here sprinkle some unholy icons there.

Oh and hope you like the new website look, it's the new site for both Only War 1 and 2 now. Anyways, until next time!

And here it is! D-day, day of days, prepare for war (hopefully).
Only War 2 should now be online and ready for downloading, click the image below to download.

The mod weighs in at 56.9 MB's in a winrar zip file.
You will need to have Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars in order to run the mod. (Not compatible with Kane's Wrath)

To install the mod, go to your C:\Users\Boomerang Python\Documents\Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars\mods directory and create a folder and name it OnlyWar2,
then you'll need to extract the files inside the .zip file into the folder you just created (a .big file and a .skudef file).

To launch the mod you simply start up your Command and Conquer 3 DVD auto-launcher and select 'Game Browser' then go to the tab 'Mods' and it should appear in that list,
now select the mod and then press the 'Launch Game' button at the bottom.


The alpha 0.1 features:

1 1v1 Map (A bridge too short)
1 Faction (Imperial Guard)
4 Units (Imperial Guardsmen, Chimeras, Hellhounds and Basilisks)
4 Buildings (Departmento Munitorum, Shrine of the Ecclesiarchy, Armamentorum, Manufactorum)
NO AI (So grab a buddy if you want to try it out)

Right, maybe I should explain how the economic side of the mod works, basically what you want to do is always make sure you construct a shrine as soon as you can, because these will generate resources (or 'faith') at a steady pace for you, and that's pretty much it. Easy really.

Also I'll repeat what I said in an earlier post; keep in mind that because it's only an alpha version it will be quite buggy and all kinds of glitchy.
So if anyone does take it for a spin, remember to post everything you encounter in the bug report section of the forum: Bug Report

Good luck out there,
Emperor Protects.

Hello, you unfortunate followers of a slowly developing total conversion!

I'm finally getting around to posting some actual updates today, with sparkling new pics on top of that!

The state of the mod is that it's progressing really really slowly (curse you shiny new games!), however, I've got that map done that I was working on, man.. I didn't realise the amount of time it took making urban maps.. and it's not even particularly big either (1v1 map), now I'm just gonna try slapping it ingame and see if our massive imperial guard structures will fit in the zone I left open for building placement. And then I just might release a first version of this God-Emperor forsaken mod! (probably pretty unbalanced and buggy though).

And after that we'll see where I go, probably make some easy traitor guard/chaos units and add some kind of anti-tank infantry or a Leman Russ since there's currently nothing that can kill tanks except for the grenade launcher that you can upgrade your guardsman squads with (which is temporary obviously because they shouldn't be that good at killing armour).

And also, relating to the whole resource bit of the mod I thought I might mention that we're going without tiberium (obviously), and each faction will have a different type of building that generates resources or "Faith" as is the case with the Imperial Guard's "Shrines of the Ecclesiarchy". Chaos will have some sort of mobile taint generating deployable vehicle that spreads taint around it and weakens enemies who walk on the tainted ground (if we get that far), using the tiberium growth code.

Anyways, here's the pretty pictures of the Imperial Guard UI v0.9 (still a few buttons and cameos to replace) and at the same time it also shows a bunch of Basilisks both in deployed and undeployed mode (the second picture is the latest version of the UI (notice the slight difference in the button icons for structures and stuff).

Until the next update,
Emperor Protects.

Good day, ladies and gentlemen.

You thought we were dead again didn't ya? To be honest I thought so myself for a while there, and when I say we I mean the mod, and when I say the mod, I mean the mod team, and when I say the mod team... uh I mean me? It's been a slow year, as you may have noticed, not much has been going on since the dawn of 2009, but from time to time I've been doing some random work (Only in death does duty end :P).

I've decided to 'reboot' the mod, so I started by just recoding the mod from scratch, even though I had no idea how to code cnc3, but it's coming along fine, ran into a few bumps and stuff but most of it got solved. Currently working on coding in the blasted Basilisk animations that I just cant seem to get working for some reason, also at the same time trying to make it able to deploy with a button press. I've also had big issues trying to do something as simple as add resource generation to a building.

With this reboot I've decided to scrap Necrons as a playable faction because they're just too damn slow and the CnC3 maps are just too damn large and open for them to really work (seeing as they're slow as um well a bloody turtle or something). And instead of Necrons we'll have Traitor guard/Chaos who are much more exciting, and to be fair, easier to balance and easier to play around with.

You will probably see an increase in activity as the end of the year gets closer, for now, have a look at this wip screenshot of an Imperial Guard base (ignore the tiberium, commandbar and crazy hellhound :P), second up are some civilian props and random imperial stuff taken in worldbuilder (hence the freaky shadows... i hope), the third pic is a wip sneak peek at a traitor guard hellhound tank which I'll probably name a Cerberus tank (color scheme is temporary).

Until the next update,
Emperor Protects.

Keep in mind that the normal maps on the treads have been fixed since the making of those screenshots, and any
screenshots featuring the Chimera in the future will have the new tread normals.

Alright, since the release of the SDK we've not actually accomplished too much, our main coder and mapper has smashed his computer and is getting a new one at the end of the month, and our secondary coder has turned violently ill with some ravaging virus from the north pole!

However, that leaves me with these 2 improvements to previous models/skins that i've been working on lately,
we're also working on the Wraith anims which might get done this weekend.. So we might have some extra goodies for you by then.

Anyways, here's the two new improved versions of the Necron Warrior and the Imperial Guard Guardsman.

Thought for the Day: Thought begets Heresy; Heresy begets Retribution.

The servants of the Imperium have not been idle of late. The greenskin "Waaagh" is growing in magnitude and becoming a major threat to the subsector. This report includes images of a convoy ambushed by a greenskin force in the desert, losses were high for the commander was unaware of greenskins in the region. Convoys moving through the desert are advised to do so with greater caution, the greenskin invasion is perhaps more significant than we had feared.

Posted Image
The commander, though attacked unexpectedly, still performed admirably in forming a passable firing line to meet the three Ork Killa Kans that charged the ranks.

Posted Image
The Imperial Guardsmen were no match for the Killa Kans in close combat, but proving the power of drawing the line, the Leman Russes cut down the Ork walkers.

Posted Image
The front of the column was annihilated immediately, but the Sentinels performed admirably under fire, ultimately succumbing to Ork missiles.

Posted Image
The second firing line was still forming when the main wave of Greenskins hit them, if not for the superior skill and training of the Kasrkin, the line would have broken much sooner.

Posted Image
Many brave guardsmen died for the Emperor, but the vile Orks were ultimately driven back.

Posted Image
The Orks are very fond of grenades and explosives, whilst they may be of limited effect to vehicles, en-masse they pose a threat, and to infantry the weapons are devastating.

Be vigilant in the coming green tide commanders.

UPDATE END.

(These guys will be in Only War and Only War 2, they look fucking stunning, and they're not too heavy on pollies, so they work fine in generals and will in cnc3, albeit in an improved form. They're gonna be in ow2, so you'd better get used to the idea!)

Thought for the Day: The graves of the warriors who have given their lives for the Emperor now outnumber the stars themselves.

The planetary comm. station has been experiencing technical difficulties yet again. The servitors that carried out the poor quality repairs have been re-formatted and those that programmed them have been executed.

There has been little activity on the planet surface of late. The servants of The Emperor grow idle. News of Greenskin activity in a nearby system has however garnered the interest of the team. Expect reports on the Greenskin activities, progress here shall be halted until further notice.

Until next time, Emperor Protects.

UPDATE END.
