Alright - so lets get down to business....I wanna do something, my life at this point is boring and I need some sort of project to work on these days.

Basically, I wanna make a COD2 single player modification...basically almost a whole new game. Sounds like a lot of work I know but would anyone be up for it? Myself, I've worked on some older COD mod teams in the past but this is the most important factor...I dont know how to mod...what I used to do was collect data, info, and basically be a historian for the team and get the skinners what they needed to make the skins and models and levels and environments while other members used other bits of info in their work.

I want to do this...I wanna make something totally different and amazing. I'm prepared to work at it as long as I have a good team of solid modders out there and I dont care if u're not that great as long as you have dedication to it.

Right now - I have no idea what the single player mod will be...could be anything...I'm gonna brain storm over the next week or so about it but if anyone has any idea please contact me at [email]scotsman2288@yahoo.com[/email] or reply here...thanks

i think that just about everyone here would love to see a mod where you're fighting the japs. This could be really amazing if you could get sgthaarde for the skinning and tally for other crap. He's good like that.

I think he got a problem, a so big mod that sounds so good..... But you cant make mods?! Gonna be hard, or atleast use alot of time, try one of the tutorials at codfiles, think they gonna help. Or try the tutorial tally posted a sticky. Umm tally and he`s team are already making an "expansion" pack for cod2. Going to be great, hopefully. Would be a total conversation, or what?

You're best bet is to find one area of modding and stick with it. Not try and take on too much, as being the leader can be horrible and hard enough at times ;)

http://www.simplymax.com/ Go to that site to learn how to begin 3d modelling, it has excelllent video tutorials, and you should be able to find a trial of 3DS Max somewhere. Otherwise spend $700 odd bucks on the actual program.

http://www.photoshopcafe.com/ This would be your beginning for texture, skinning, and basic artwork. Pick up a copy of Photoshop CS, as you'll find that the best to use. You could also use The Gimp, a toned down version of Photoshop, but it is free.

As for coding, your best bet is to learn the basics of something like C++ or HTML to gather a background on how the whole coding system works. Once you have that ground knowledge, look at a game base files and explore to find out how the scripting works and such. Thats how I taught myself and Im having an awesome time!

Try these places; - http://www.codeproject.com/ http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/

I hope I helped, and in the next few weeks Im putting together a guide to working a mod team, might post it somewhere here. Best of luck!

There are tutorials on modding stickied at the top of the forum

But if you want to get involved with our COD2 expansion project called "Rise of the Resistance", sign up for it here:

http://www.cod2-expansion.com

It is both SP and MP.

Thats awesome Tally. I remember following that when it first came around. Might you be able to give any updates on progress for me? :p
