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!

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.

Yes, yes we're still alive..

It's been like 2 months since we posted anything, but work has been done in the dark
but it has been slow work, really slow, considering we have only one texture artist on
the team right now and loads of models that are just waiting for a paint job,
that's why I'd like to see any people interested in helping out email or pm me
(you can find my email on moddb or on our forums)

Anyways, I did mention that work has been going on in the dark didn't I?

Well what's been done is we've gotten the Basilisk ingame albeit without any of it's fancy
animations we've made (two guardsmen crewing it, doing crew stuff), ran into a snag
when we tried to export it so we had to remove the crew for now until we can purge the
filth that is keeping us from doing the Emperor proud.

We also decided to throw in a screenshot of the new improved normal map on the
chimera treads.

Also we should have some space marine related news along with some more shots of the
basilisk coming up in a couple of days..

So until then, enjoy these screenshots,
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.

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!)
