Warfront 3.51 Patch Update coming soon!

Warfront 3.51 Patch Update 


Today I share with you the contents of the 3.51 patch, as well as the unveiling of a new map for the 'Front... 

The Battle for Stalingrad  


This map is my attempt to copy the Stalingrad diorama located in the Stalingrad Museum. Although some of the paths have been changed, and some areas added for gameplay, this is about as close as you will come to the real thing...

Warfront v3.5 Full Version 04/19: Download

Warfront Bot Count Patch (for the Singleplayer needed) Download

 Currently there is a Multiplayer COOP Server online for you:








The Germans begin in the Northwest corner, with a formidable fighting force. Their objective: to capture at least 1 base to stop their ticket bleed, and 3 bases to bleed the Russians.



Their first target will most likely be the Worker's Housing area, which was the first area of Stalingrad to fall to the Germans in early '43.



After the advance through the maze of destruction and rubble, the City Park is next. An open area, it is best to let the armored vehicles fight this one out, as any infantry caught in the open make prime targets for snipers.



Heading south through the city will bring you to the Communist Party Square, home of the famous "Children's Khorovod" fountain. Although I have not modeled this fountain true to life, it is represented by a fountain that can be used for concealment.



To the east of the Communist Party Square is the Factory area. This was historically not in this part of the city, but I included it to pay homage to the savage fighting around the real Tractor Factory in Stalingrad.



Finally, south of the Communist Party Square is the Railroad. The broken down T-34's left here by the Russians led the Germans to believe that they did not have a formidable fighting force left in the city to defend it. I have paid homage to this with my own row of destroyed T-34s...and maybe one that isn't broke.



This map is in testing at the moment, with full AI support, and is currently getting all of it's lightmaps generated. Look for it in the 3.51 Patch!

Warfront: This is a patch for the bot count issue with Singleplayer mode!


Bot Count Patch  


A patch is available which fixes the bot count in Single Player mode. The slider will now correctly control how many bots are spawned in the map.  When selecting a map, the thumbnails show the suggested max number of bots for that map, but all maps can spawn up to 255 bots with the slider at 1600%. On some maps, setting the bot count to 255 will cause severe lag, so it is recommended that the suggested bot max on the thumbnail be used.






Warfront v3.5 Full Version 04/19: Download

Warfront Bot Count Patch (for the Singleplayer needed) : Download

 Currently there is a Multiplayer COOP Server online for you:


 

This patch also adds the Flammpanzer III to a few maps...Check the Eastern European maps after Feb 1943 to play it ;)

Warfront 3.5 Full Release!




The newest release of Warfront is upon us!. This is version 3.5, and is the full, final version of this mod. I will continue to update this version for awhile, and will certainly release patches for any bugs, but this will most likely be the last FULL release. It has been a long ride to get to where this mod is today, all the way from it's humble beginnings in 2005. Thank you for taking that ride with me. I hope you enjoy playing.

I am currently working on 2 brand new Warfront maps, as well as a background movie for the menu. These will by uploaded as a map pack and an add-on when I complete them. I will also introduce a few more vehicles and weapons as I get the time, either as add-ons or in map-specific updates. I am working on some AI updates as well for some of the older maps, but this will take some time. This mod isn't dead after this release by any means, but development has slowed considerably since I started my job. I will update when I get the chance, but I work a lot of hours so please be patient.

Many of the models in Warfront were downloaded from free 3d model sites. Some are my models, unwrapped to an existing texture that came from these sites, while others are the original model with a new texture by me. Some were used exactly as they were downloaded, with only the required work done to convert them to BF1942, and specifically, Warfront. To any mod team that sees their models or textures in Warfront, I am more than happy to give you full credit for the work, and I will share the site URL with you if you wish to speak to them about taking your models down. Any map that was originally made for another mod has been credited by me to that mod (with whatever information I had), and only necessary changes to convert the map to Warfront were made. All credit goes to any original map makers.

Kharkov (original BF1942 map, new conversion)
Khalkhin Gol (Warfront map by takiwa, with AI)
Battle of Tinian (Warfront map by takiwa, with AI)
* SP max numbers were decided by map size, number of objects on the map, game play, and lag. Some maps just aren't big enough, or have too many objects, to support 255 bots and you without lagging out the game (even on a newer computer) and on some maps, having too many bots made game play worse.
Single player max (total) number of players is decided by the slider in SP mode. 1600% will give you the max number of players listed on the thumbnail of the map. Adjust the slider to a smaller percentage to choose less total players. Team numbers are decided by map specific .con files, however. For example, if the map .con specifies Team 1 = 120, Team 2 = 80, and you choose 1600% percent on a 128 map, then Team 1 will have 77 players, and Team 2 will have 51 players.

Battlefield 1918: Bots incoming v3.2!



Today the Battlefield 1918 dev team is proud to announce that 3.2 will not only be adding new maps with bot support, but we will also be adding bots to some of the existing maps as well!

Um auch ein Mitspieler zu werden benötigt ihr:


1.) The Basic - für neue Spieler oder Tester, die sich von der Magie des Spiels und der Mod anstecken lassen wollen: Download

2.) Battlefield 1918 v3.1 Part 1-3: Download


Original News aus moddb.com, verfasst von dem Battlefield 1918 Mod - Entwickler  ACE1918:

Greetings and welcome to another news update regarding Battlefield 1918. We are happy to announce that we will indeed be adding more bot support to Battlefield 1918 in the form of new maps! Today we will have a look at 2 of the new maps that will include this much requested feature! A special thanks to Andrey15 for taking the pics you will see today!
The first map to look at today is one of our newest, the Battle of Cer! Inspired by the historical Battle of the same name, the Battle of Cer sees the Kingdom of Serbia and the Empire of Austria-Hungary fight in one of their first major battles in 1914. This engagement would ultimately see the first notable victory for the Entente powers during the war.

 

 

 

The other new map that we will have a look at is none other than Galician Fields. Set during the Battle for Galicia, also known as the Battle of Lemberg, this map features the Russian empire against once again Austria-Hungary in the first year of the war. The Battle for Galicia would see the Tsar's army claim a victory against the forces of the Dual Monarchy.





 

That is all the news for new maps, but for players wanting more I am also happy to announce that due to public demand the 1918 dev team will also be adding bot support to some existing maps as well. The first of the returning maps we will showcase today is Masurian Lakes. Set during the 2nd infamous battle of the same name during the bitterly cold month of February 1915, this map features the Russian Empire defending against the might of the Kaiser's armies. Players may notice that in addition to the bots, this map now features new weather effects in the form of snowfall.

 

 

 

Of course this isn't the only returning map to receive the upgrade of bot support, fans may now also look forward to news regarding another beloved map today, as Monte Piana will receive bot support in the 3.2 update as well! Set amidst the scenic Dolomite mountains in Italy, Monte Piana was hotly contested between the Kingdom of Italy and Austria-Hungary throughout the war.

 





We hope that you found this news to be to your liking, but before we end this news update we are pleased to announce that a new trailer has also been uploaded to announce this news as well. We may have slipped a few other features into it as well. In any case please stay tuned for further news!

Warfront v3.5: News Update pt.2



As the release of 3.5 draws near, I present you with another brand-new Warfront map, the Battle of Tinian...



Fought in 1944, the Battle of Tinian was part of the US push to secure the Gaum, Saipan, and Tinian islands.



Warfront 3.4Download





These islands were vital because they allowed the US to set up air bases that were within striking distance of the Japanese home islands.



The Battle of Tinian in Warfront consists of 6 bases on the island controlled by the Japanese, and a US fleet containing a Destroyer and a Carrier.



A landing on well-armed and defended beaches is necessary because no pilot kits have been provided...i.e., no parachutes!



There are a number of MG nests, bunkers, artillery and AT gun positions on the island for the Japanese to utilize, so it will be a hard fight for the Marines.

There are, however, 3 different landing beaches on the island, so it is very possible to spread the Japanese defenders thin.



During testing, I've found that the map plays pretty decent, the bots are responsive and will defend the island well. I'm not an AI guy by any means, but it works, and can always be tweaked 
Anyway, I'm getting closer everyday to the release, so your wait is almost over!
Until next time, takiwa
