ok, i love half-life 2, and i love WH40K Dwan of War. Each has its its own qualities. Half-life 2 has pulse-pounding action, while Dawn of War has strategy and gigantic, beautifully rendered battles. The problem is, neither of these games has wut the other does. Half-life 2's battles are never truly large-scale (thousands of units on-screen), and Dawn of War's battles are long and not-so-pulse-pounding. So why notsmash them together? i want to make a mod for half-life 2, in which u play as a terminator space marine. You will be able to use almost any weapon or vehicle from the WH40K universe, and we will have a large campaign that will allow u to fight all the different creatures from Dawn of War. Orc, Tau, Necron, Chaos Space marines, we got em all. There will be generally two types of missions. The infiltration missions will be more like half-life 2's Nova Prospekt level, where there is constant action, but u still dont want to tottally let loose, cuz u could get caught. Then, there will be the large-scale battles. You will fight alongside hundreds, or even thousands of space marines, against equal or even larger numbers. The action will be amazing: tanks firing, thousands of soldiers clashing in long range and melee combat, giant units like the orc squigoth and chaos blood thirster terrorizing the battlefield. This mod has the potential to be amazing, and i would really like to get started soon. So e-mail me at [EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/EMAIL] if u r interested in joining. We need pretty much everyone: mappers, coders, concept artists, skinners, modellers, everyone, so if u have any modding skills, just send me a picture of one of ur works, and u can join the group!
maybe you can team up with these guys, they also are makin' a 40k mod :D
Ive wanted to see something like that for a long time, the only problem is that the sorce engine cannot handle that much AI (it has trouble with a couple dozen) but it should mainly be SM (you) vs Lost and the damned traitor gaurdsmen cuz that makes the most sense fluff-wise instead of just going up against other CSMs... boring, thats always what happens when people do stuff like this, its always SMs vs CSMs where you take over a clip of bolter amunation to kill eachother.... orks would be cool too. if you played as IG you would have the opporitunity to make things more realistic...just god, i dont want annother SM vs CSM game.
heres a link that say more about this. http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=291772
thats not true. i play monster onslaught w/ garry's mod, and i just put cover like dumpsters and stuff, and spawn like a gagillion resistance fighters, and a gagillion combine and some striders, and have this massive batte. its awesome! and theres absolutely no lag, plus the ai does coordinate, take cover, and move in on the enemy, so it could work.
