One of the first rules when requesting help for a new mod, is to give some information on its likely content (you'll notice I said "likely" because almost every mod starts of with a bare idea, select of units etc.etc but is nearly always radically changed by the time major work starts), as this will give not only people an idea of what to expect but also possibly get modders attention. One question you also need to ask yourself is:

"What can I do, modding wise??"

Far to many times I've seen new modders with big ideas but the inability to get very far because all they do is attempt to run the mod and little else. A very good mod leader will nearly always have the ability to carry out certain tasks themselves. In my own case my current mod might lack some of the visual qualities of other mods but I do do as much as I possibly can, although its nice to get the minor help I do from time to time.

One thing to remember though, is to try to include a few unique features which other mods don't have. With non wars mods its not so difficult but when making a wars based mod it is far harder than you might first think.

To my knowledge free modders are pretty hard to come by as nearly all are involved in their own projects or have left the community. Moddelers are even harder to come by so you might find it difficult to find any that will commit. Finally, I would be extremely surprised if Warb Null actually joined you as he's never struck me as anything other than a freelance moddeler. Thats why he's not currently part of a team and releases the models he wants to.

Anyway, I wish you luck with this project and don't take my advice as criticism. Its just something I've learnt over the years.

Major A Payne is right. Having nothing but a mod title isn't going to persuade anyone to join you. And AFAIK this is going to be your first mod. You'll have to make due with the resources available and make the best mod you can. When you have something to show for people might be more inclined to help.

As for me, i won't join your mod. Nothing personal but i like the thing the way they are now. I make what i want when i want and for whom i want.

Best of luck with the mod.

Good luck with that...

I doubt anyone is gonna do that for you as setting up and rigging infantry is time consuming and re-doing a boatload of infantry animations is time consuming also

did you even take note of the advice people gave you in the last thread? Nobody worth joining is going to join a mod where no information has been given...

You may have noticed i have never made an infantry model. The reason i haven't is because i can't rig them. You'll have to find someone else to help you.
