  • [W.I.P] Avante-Garde (cinematic map)

    http://img813.imageshack.us/img813/2...nguardlogo.png

    Vanguard (originally named Avante-Garde) began as a cinematic project I was working on using GEM Editor. It evolved in to a singleplayer campaign mod, where player can choose to play as either of the faction and take command of the troops to accomplish the objectives.

    Men of War: Vanguard is a singleplayer modification for original Men of War series, set during World War 2 in the fictional war-torn European settings.

    Storyline and map is still W.I.P so the quality isn't up-to-par, but it'll improve over time. Mod was inspired by Sudden Strike, Blitzkrieg, and other RTS games.

    Features:
    - Brand new singleplayer missions
    - Complete overhaul of environment textures
    - New units
    - New storyline

      Be sure to track down some good looking skins as well, the community has alot to offer, just be sure to get permission to use whichever skins you'd like.

      It could be handy for making your soldiers stand out. to use a different skin for any one you want to stand out.

            Thanks guys for your feedbacks. I'll check the skins out, Ulrek, and see if they're fitting to use.

            Not much has been added to the map except I extended the beach slightly for realism and to include more area of access. I spent too much time on the scripting for past two days. But enough scripting for now, I should put my focus on completing the map layout before starting on the triggers. This might end up becoming a singleplayer and multiplayer co-op mod. A short video can come afterward.

            At least I got the endless LCVP landings, looping artillery bombardment, and infantry waypoints done.

                      I am not certainly sure, the project began about a week ago. It depends on how fast I learn how the MoW modding work, I'm still trying to grasp it but I'm getting somewhere. Maybe between a month to three months? There are many things I must do after completing the map itself, such as changing the GUIs, modifying the skins, changing the ranges and such.

                      And a question, I'm use to modding files on Source Engine. On Source Engine, the modified files in its respective folder will automatically load when a user start up the game. I was wondering if this work the same way as well for Men of War? Or must I modify the files then compress it in to a .PAK/.PAT file?

                        men of war modding is really simple and you dont to create paks because all .Paks are is compressed files to keep the size small if you downloaded a mod already it should help you learn the basics of it and all .pak and .pat are openable with winrar. Anyway the map looks great cant wait to see the finished version.

                          Awesome map looks a lot better then my St.Lo!
                          I have one question: Can you release that map for public after you have finished the movie?
                          Would be great to storm that beach in MP...

                            @gamerliker8 Ah alright,thanks for your suggestions. I went and downloaded BBWW2 as you suggested and took a look at its directory setup and found just exactly what I needed to know. Thanks!

                            @Cappe! Yes, the map will be release as a singleplayer and multiplayer co-op campaign mod.

                              I'm almost done with the landscape itself, I just have to finish up the textures and props and fortifications. There are some places in the map I am not satisfied with so I'll have to go back and revise those areas.

                              Once all that is done then I can get start on the difficult part: scripting the map. -sighs-
