[size=2]ArmA Chechenya War Mod
[/size]


Mod Info:
The project is ambitious: recreate the units and ambiance of the second chechnya war.

For this, we'll need to create:
    Both sides units, winter and summer
    New vehicles and aircrafts
    Some reskins of all kinds
    A sound mod
    Some new maps, winter and summer
    Some new functions

As the work will be long and hard, we decided to release the units as soon as they are ready, then a pack when necessary.


Team members:
Crionyk
datakill
Dev

and some regular contributors as:
Dante haguel
Nullmorpheme


Recruiting:
This mod can use any help so if you can make camo pattern pictures, 3D models, textures, etc feel free to contact them at their website.

Is this the same Chechen Mod that was mentioned at gamedev.net back over a year ago, then ceased development due to lack of interest?

Hi guys! If you need I'd be happy to work on the aircraft section =) Modeling, I suck at texturing though but I'd love to be a part of a project and actually contribute with something =)

Hi guys,

I didn't realised you added the WIP info here and I was about to do it, but the infos about our works "escaped" itself due to an Cryonyk interview on http://www.arma-fr.net (In french). No big deal though.

To give more details about the team members:
_Datakill
_Crionyk
_Dev

and some regular contributors as:
_Dante haguel
_Nullmorpheme

@Opteryx: no it's not the same project, and I've never heard about the one you're talking about :)

@Ripperbat: For sure we'll be happy to count you as a member of the team, contact me on our forum ;)


Alright, now the info is official. I'll post more screenies here really soon



@foxhound: i added some screen in my armaholic folder but it seems like I can't post them as thumbnails, doesn't work...

Very nice work, looks like you have a good start. Are you planning on creating SP/MP missions along with it? Would make it really worth playing.

Yes, for sure. As soon as the last fixes will be done on the MVD units and the weapons pack, I'll start to work on some MP missions as we have our own server now.

To make thumbs work here we have a very easy system, check this guide we made.
Scroll down until you see "Additional information - Thumbs, how to make them".



I am looking forward to see more screenshots of the project. I was very pleasantly suprised seeing this project and wanted to be sure we had it in our forums, sorry I took away the chance to post it yourself.


BTW, thanks for the additional info (team), added to the first post.

I have always been real interested in the Chechen war, practically any of the Muslim conflicts. I used to read a lot about it and look at a lot of photos before I joined the Army, there was one particular gallery that had LOADS of pictures in it, and I know of another site that has really HQ pictures of Russian arms and clothing/camo/equipment.

http://www.pbase.com/igor01/chechnya&page=all This is the gallery I was talking about, hope it helps you. I forget the link to the other one, if you want it I can find it for you.




EDIT: And I just looked at your new pictures, I really like the sniper in winter camo, but the mask looks a bit odd, I'm not sure if it was the model or the texture. I can't say what to do as I am not a modeler/texture artist, but I figured you would like some constructive criticism maybe?

Thx for the link. I already know this website as i spent hours on google pics and youtube to find some documentations about uniforms, weapons and all.

About the mask...I don't think it's the texture but we're doing some fixes before the first release, so, for sure we like constructive criticism. ;)

Thanks for the reply. I was saddened to hear about that Mod failing. I hope this project gets far as I think it's an intriguing theme.

Best of luck.

Ebolax : the mask looks a bit odd, I'm not sure if it was the model or the texture.

It is just a "face.jpg" (profile face) during screenshot takings. The main thing was the whole camo suit with hood, and the face was slapped on to look a bit more cool for the screenshots. That will be changed in the first release.

Some news and screenshots:


-We are all working hard and some new dev team members joined us to give a hand.
Guys like Tobias Rieper and Ripperbat are doing some great job for the mod as modelers.
This way, the units are almost completly reworked and we decided to make some changes in the first pack that will be released.

The first pack should include :

- A weapons pack:
# AKS 74 from BIS original weapon : will come in gp25, silenced, PSO scope and 1P29 sight
# VSS Vintorez
# SVD with wooden grip and synthetic grip + camo version
# Bizon come in silenced, non silenced
# AKMS
...and more

- The MVD units (in urban and woodland reed camo with M22 "Tarzan" assault vest)
- The Chechen rebels
- KA50, MI17 (transport and rocket version), BTR80 reskined.

The beta test for this pack has been released to some members few days ago

The winter pack will be released later in a separated pack.


-The island is still on work but slowed due to a bug on the airport building.


-Few days ago, the "Vityaz Clan" was born. This clan is the CWMod partner and will play missions based on the mod.
Vityaz clan members are french at this moment but recruiting players from all over the world, able to speak english.
We have our own 14 slots server "Vityaz clan / CWM" 1.08 version where the first CWM beta tests will be proceeded in a few days.

-Some missions are on the work. We are currently playing "Domination" for RHS pack V2 on our server and this mission will be modified for the CWMod and released.
(Thanks to "Xeno" for the permission).
Some members of the Vityaz Clan are also making some great missions.

-The forum still need another Russian / English speaking moderator. No huge work, just need to know the mod and answer the questions in the Russian part of the forum

The whole CWM dev team would also like to thank all the forum members who offer and provide some help in all the kinds of work we're doing.
"Abica" from www.red-alliance.net, "Rus_alpha" and his friend for the russian voices in domination R1, "sobr" for the technical informations about the weapons, and all the others for their support and suggestions.


Stay tuned ! http://cwm.servegame.com
