Post news RSS July Progress Report

The team is back for our regular monthly update. This time we're giving you a peek at one of our alpha maps and saying hello and goodbye to a few of our developers.

Posted by on

July has been a relatively quiet month for the team. Alpha testing has continued at a steady pace, and we are proud to say that for the most part we have reached feature lock for our upcoming public beta, which means that we are focused on the content development front (primarily maps) and ironing out bugs by playtesting, rather than coding in new features or making drastic changes to the gameplay. We are aiming for four complete maps to be ready for our beta; you've already seen two of them, Somme and Passchendaele. Today we're giving you a peek at some work in progress screenshots of another one, wickit's map ww_devilswood, set on the outskirts of a small town.

We also have some sad news - one of our developers, Tomi "Ztormi" Lammi has left the team in order to fulfill his mandatory service in the Finnish Defense Forces. Ztormi contributed a great deal to the mod as a mapper and our primary coder, and without him we wouldn't be anywhere close to where we are today. Hats off to Tomi and best of luck to him in the military! On a happier note, we would also like to welcome Jobye "deceiver" Karmaker to the team, where he will be helping out in the modeling department, particularly with prop models.

That's all for this month. Modest update, I know, but we should have something very tasty for you to munch on in our August post. Thanks for reading and remember to add us to your ModWatch if you haven't already!

Looks great really looking forward to this mod :) On a side note, I was just reading about Sonata Arctica's former lead guitarist Jani, and he got imprisoned for not fulfilling his mandatory service of the same thing I think, strange coincidence.

Will we be able to play as an ottoman soldier? If so that will be great. it can cause many Turks buy HL2 just for this mod. think about it.
