Tweaking and adding content mostly. Trying to get that shooter-feel we want. Lots of statics, effects, weapons, etc. all need to be done and meanwhile others keep tweaking the gameplay. It will be a while until we release, I'll just be honest on that. But progress is going well the past few months.

The most I can probably say is we're building content and maps.  It's going at a steady clip, but it will be done when it's done :P  We've seen a lot of reworks recently, completely redoing models from scratch and such. :)  If you look in the archives, you can find the initial version of the enfield and bren, the compare it to the actual models we're using that were shown above :3

I already signed my NDA and am currently working on the M1 Thompson animations for Traction Wars as my trial task to be a full time developer. Working with CE3 technology is quite complex but very rewarding to see your work in the engine.  ;D

I know the lead level designer. I was in the army with him. We were having a field exercise and were having a break at the military camp. In the welfare room of that camp there were computers and he was on the computer. When i look at his screen, a freaking Panzer IV H  with the ambush cammo JUST like the FH 2 pz4 h. And i shouted "wtf. Thats a panzer 4 h! Do you play forgotten  hope?!" And he just said no and didnt think i knew the name of the tank and that i just read the filename  :P

Anyways, ive asked him much about the mod, and I really look forward to this.  Asked him about maps, and he's working on Lebisey atm!! Good shit!

Good Lord that PIAT looks like pure sex. That engine could make dogshit look good.

What I found really cool tho was the dev blog on it. As someone who's just starting to REALLY get into textures and skinning things that was pretty informative. Wish there were some more tutorials like that but that go into more detail.

If he's 20 years old and is from Norway, then yes :p

He was the medic in our platoon, a damned good one too.

I think he's 20. But we only have one mapper from Norway. Unit was First Guard or something?

Awesome! I cant speak for Traction Wars obviously but so many mods have beautiful models that are accompanied by sub-par and sometimes just plain horrible animations. [asskiss]Love your work in FH[/asskiss]

Yep, animators are extremely hard to come by. We are very lucky that Chad wants to help as many mods as he can.
