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!

Right, I've decided I'm gonna release the first Alpha of the mod as is, not gonna tamper any more with it,
so within the next few days there will be a Only War 2 Alpha 0.1 uploaded to the site and made available to the public.

However, keep in mind that it will be reaaaaaaaally buggy and all kinds of glitchy. So if anyone does take it for a spin, remember to
post everything you encounter in the bug reports section of the forum: Bug Report

I'll post another one of these devlogs when I've uploaded the bugfest to the ftp.

Hey folks

Been a bit ill lately so, not much has happened since last time, but I might be able to get it uploaded soon though,
need to do some test plays with someone first, the menu buttons can go screw themselves ..for now.
Stay tuned!

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.

People of the Internet! Hear ye! Hear ye!

Have no fear! We've managed to fight off the mighty hordes of video-game insanities that has
been crashing into the walls of our fair fortress of spare time and modding hours!

The last 4 months have been mad on the amazing game release side.. or at least it has been for me as the mad gamer i am
(and probably most modders with me) so work has been basically standing still but I've started work on a Shrine (name not yet decided)
for the Imperial Guard which will act as their basic source of income.

Also Only War 2 is now basically a One man show starring me (come to think about it, that's really how it's been all along..)
not counting the coding that was done a couple months ago by Torn.

Still, there's something for you to see and drool over until the shrine is done and I get on to the 2d bits (commandbars and such)
that need doing, the first pictures are some images we never uploaded of the now properly working
firing effect for the Hellhound, second is the.. well.. pretty self explanatory some more civ props I did a
couple months ago, and lastly there's the Marauder Bomber which we will be using as a Special Power and civilian prop
(and eventually most likely as a controllable air unit).

Until next time, whenever that may be,
Emperor Protects.

Oh, and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

Yo peeps, We're back with another update today but not a very significant one
however it has some niceness to it, the Armamentorium which would be the
Imperial Guard Barracks. As you can see I've gone for a basic bunker kind of
look so no windows or anything, after all they are keeping all sorts of explosives
in there.. I've also tried to keep the look similar to that of the Armamentorium
from OW1 (which i also tried to do with the Manufactorum), oh and yes the
door is supposed to be that gigantic.

I've now started texturing the Departmento Munitorum which is the
Imperial Guard Command Center, it should be done pretty soon actually..

Also we have decided that we will be releasing a first super-alpha build of
Only War 2 that will only contain Imperial Guard (so you'll have to imagine
your enemy as a heretic commander ;)), a unique resource system and probably
some custom map(s) and other things not yet decided..

We can't tell when but we're getting there.. Imperial Guard is basically done and
just needs some polishing once the buildings are done.

Until next time,
Emperor Protects.

UPDATE RECEIVED - VISUALS ONLINE.

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: Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Things have been busy of late. The Greenskins have amassed quite a sizeable army, including, but not limited to, the Killa Kan and Biker. However, the Imperium is not idle to this threat, for the armies of the Imperial Guard have been reinforced with the Sentinel and Hellhound.

Posted Image
The Ork Warbike, fast and surprisingly well armed for its size.

Posted Image
The Ork Killa Kan, a well armoured walking killing machine.

Posted Image
The Ork Fort is the nexus of any Ork camp, a huge fortified building with plenty of room for Greenskins to fight from the battlements.

Posted Image
The Sentinel, a fast scouting vehicle that is armed with a Las Cannon for eliminating any armoured threats it might find.

Posted Image
The Hellhound, a vehicle feared by infantry for its deadly flamethrower.

Thought for the Day: Inspiration grows from the barrel of a gun.



Lately, our planetary comm-station went down and we havent been able to reach the fleet in orbit for a long time (this due to a xeno incursion),
but the techpriests and enginseers have been working hard to get a forward comm-station up and they're finally done. This is the first word
we've been able to get off-planet for a long time, so we'll instead of making one big update, post two less big updates.

The first part of this report is about the reinforcements the Adeptus Astartes has been getting from the Fortress Monastaries on Ultramar
these last couple of days. The Terminators, fierce warriors in the best infantry armour the imperium has to muster and the deadliest
weapons any infantryman could ever dream of carrying.

Posted Image



The second part of this report is about some necron recon picts that were taken earlier this month by the scouts we sent out,
apparantly this planet has a large concentration of tomb sites, they've all been starting to come to life the last 3 weeks.
According to High Command, these little robotic things are little threat to even one single guardsman,
but thats the problem, they dont come one and one, they operate in swarms.

Posted Image



The third part of this report is about some more recon picts that were taken near the recently activated tombs,
this however is more disturbing than the reported scarab picts, because this.. is one of the heavier
necrons that could take out tanks, if we loose our tanks, we dont stand much chance against the looming threat of the necrons.

Posted Image



The fourth and last part of this report is something the navy wanted to put in as a note, they spotted greenskins while on one of their patrol runs in the system, they think they've got a base somewhere in this system.

Posted Image




Until next time, Emperor Protects.

Not much to say on Only War 2, however, much is underway in Only War 1...

Since most of Only War 1 is now finished, I'm now working on the AI... It's coming along quite nicely too, the entire Cadian AI is finished and a good healthy portion of the Tau one is done.

Aside from AI-ing, I'm doing a few tweaks to the code here and there, suffice to say... Only War will be excellently balanced.. I've been balancing it for months :p
