Ok - so I posted a quick thing in the mod section for a mod that I want to make but what I want to ask in here is what you - the call of duty 2 players - would like to see?

As in what do you want added to the COD2 expierence? You can name anything...weapons, levels, details, add ons, whatever you can think of...I'm basically looking for ideas here for something I would want to do.

Rather than starting from scratch here you may want to mention some of the ideas you have and ask others to give their opinions and add to them. You are already up against pretty stiff competition in WiCoPP's Reality mod. It's really just a compilation of other's mods he assembled, though he did so very well with great stability. The 2.7 version of it goes too far IMO though adding a very annoying blackscreen damage effect to simulate blacking out to replace the red edges around the screen. I'm not sure I like the way the latest version adds difficulty either. It seems like there are now 1 in 10 troops carrying a Panzerschreck. It's nice to have some here and there but too many make for an odd and unrealistic way of adding challenge. The smoke trails COD2 uses for that weapon look totally fake too. Personally I'd like to see something very similar to Reality 2.6 but with the addition of nade cookoff, no zoom on the iron sights and some additional enemy troops, maybe 10-20 or so per map. Too many extra troops and the FPS drops a lot. One thing I think those that add extra troops don't always think about is that depending on the weapons you equip them with, you can add lots of challenge without adding too many jerries or dropping the FPS. A few snipers well placed with good AI can easily provide as much challenge if not more so than 10 troops with MP40s. It also makes the game less run & gun and more tactical. I have added my own mini mod to Reality 2.6 putting cookoff on the nades and taking the zoom out of the iron sights without any problems, so I know it's pretty stable. Mod stability is important to me, I can't think of one mod I've ever used that I did not want to change slightly in some way. When I removed the zoom from the iron sights on the Beyond the Call of Duty mods for COD and UO for instance, it resulted in artifacts, which was pretty upsetting to me.

I would really like to see a full SPR mod for single player. I know that at the moment it's practically impossible to make huge new single player campaigns, or to do realistically scripted and animated NPC's. However with a huge amount of work by the best CoD2 modders, it could be pulled off within 1 (2) years? I know that it sounds rediculous but, that's what I would like to see.

Hi, I know this is a bit silly but I would like to see more good MP maps. Generally with any game I will go through the SP once or twice (unless its HL2 :p) but then I will keep coming back for the MP. However as with nearly every FPS game I think there are way too few maps. And all the maps have theirown stratigies, like the Egypt map is a sniper-map and so is the huge green feild map. I think the weapons are pretty blanced (excluding PPsh which is ridicilous). Nade cookoff is simply a must. I mean honestly, some of hte most competent and hardened troops ever cant count to 5? WTF? Its just silly and lame. I also think it would be good (but very difficult) to have an MP emulator , say MP but with bots for all the people who cannot enjoy MP, or who want practice etc...

Dont know if you guys are aware or not, but a big group of prominent COD community members are making a full-fledged Expansion Pack for COD2 called "Rise of the Resistance".

It will have 3-4 new SP missions, and a new MP gametype plus other new MP aspects.

We are expanding on what COD2 has already done, but drawing in new areas. This time, the resistance movements from France, Italy and Poland.

Check out the progress here:

Just a few things to say. I agree that no one typically plans to make a mod with no modding experience. Even WiCoPP whom for the most part assembled the work of others with Reality had to have certain skills to pull it off seamlessly with stability. It even works well with mini mods such as minor weapon script changing. Rise of the Resistance sounds awesome and the screenshot looks really good. It's about time a project focusing on these unsung heros was made. I read the list of positions open and saddly I don't qualify for any of them. I can only offer to help beta test when the time comes, but that will no doubt be quite a while from now. It appears this thread has quickly changed direction from the original poster's intent. Perhaps the RotR mention and link could have and should have been placed in it's own thread, like it was on CoDBoards.com.;)

>Omen< - dont worry about abilities. We need as many people helping out as we can.

I know you have ability, even if you dont have the knowledge. Im sure you would gain an aweful lot just by coming and joining us, as I would find you stuff to do which I know you would be able to figure out.

We dont expect everyone to be able to go away and finish an assignment unsupervised. We expect all sorts of questons/problems to crope up and we would solve them as a team.

Get yourself over to the site, make it known that you want to join in the thread about applications to join and I'll make sure its approved.

If VOP2288 also wants to come and join us, and lend us his time and efforts, we would very much like that.

OK, well I did stop by the site. I guess it was the list of volunteer positions that seemed daunting to me. Like I hinted at I've only done minor weapon script changing, but I'd love to learn more or adapt to some simple work that might be similar to that. I'll get over there again, register, and introduce myself this time. I generally only give my screen name out online though. If need be I might also add that I have some basic video editing skills and could put together a trailer when they get enough work compiled. I still can't believe such a huge project has not been given it's own thread here yet though.
