Title: Let's Play: WH40k
Post by: ohartenstein23 on December 11, 2018, 04:23:41 am
Hi everyone, I'm starting a let's play of the WH40k mod on OXCE! I'll be playing as the Imperial Guard, so there will be plenty of room for recruits - let me know if you want to briefly see your name on screen before a bolter or lasgun vaporizes it. I'll begin recording the actual series once bulletdesigner and I release a new version of the mod where both the Imperial Guard and base content are combined into a single download. I don't know how often I'll post new videos as this is the first time I'm trying recording a LP, but I promise I won't spam too much here as advertisement for this.

Recruitment video: https://youtu.be/xwdZJY1I4_8
Youtube playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkcoV_pZgGtJjYhGk25lHW93wR_cyt_It

Edit: I'm attaching the mod I use for soldier names and re-recruitment if anyone wants to have a look how it's done.

The first couple episodes are up, enjoy!

I'm also looking for a volunteer to be our third Commissar, and as soon as the research finishes some ogryn recruits, speak up if you want them.

BEFORE I WAIT FOR MORE REPLIES - AND BEFORE OTTO OR SOMEONE DELETES MY REPLY/POST/MESSAGE ON THIS TOPIC/THREAD OR NOT (https://forums.nexusmods.com/public/style_emoticons/dark/sweat.gif)
@ohartenstein23
Hey, Otto. I've read your 2 posts on the thread earlier.
And i've finally watched 0-3 episodes of your WH40k mod LP. Also, i kinda liked your LP and your voice in there (no offenses), it looks a cool mod. :)

For now i'm kinda excited for now on. I'll wait for more episodes from you and YT later (also, i don't have a YT account. But i don't want one this year nor the future. Don't add me to the LP if you like, i'm good).


Cheers! :D

NOTE:
Also, i apparently uncomfortable with adding you as a friend/buddy on OXC forums, and asking you suggestions or ideas about new codes or new things to OXCE and other things right now via forum posts, forum PMs, Tumblr, FB or others (But not Discord. I'm not interested in that right now). But keep up the good work on the LP, Otto! ;)

Once you are done with this 40K campaign will you do the other factions (Space Marines etc.)

Glad you're enjoying the LP.

I'm not sure at this point. Since this is my first LP, I'll have to see whether or not I enjoy making videos in the long run before I commit to another series. If I do make another 40k series, it probably won't be right away in order to let the content feel a bit more fresh again for me.

Edit: Two new videos are up! I'm going to see if I can record a few more before Christmas vacation to release next week.

More Edit: In addition to the two videos from yesterday, I've recorded two more that will be released while I'm traveling, enjoy!

Okay, cool.

Good luck with your vacation and traveling this December. (Adding you on the buddies list just for the sake of my RL idiocity (NOT OXC, WC3, GAMING OR OTHER IDIOCIES I HAVE) in November to December 2018 then.

First new episode after Christmas is up! I'm still looking for a few more Ogryn recruits as that research should pop soon, plus there's a Commissar and a really accurate unnamed Guardsman up for grabs, granted I don't get them killed finishing the mission next episode.

@Otto (ohartenstein23)
Uh... Otto, sir? Before i watch a new episode of your 40k LP unless i wait for a week jic i'm in a mood or not.
Have you played any 40k video games as far as i could tell instead of playing 40k mod for OXCE? :)
e.g: DOW1 or DOW2? or Chaos Gate '98?

No, I have not - I was unfamiliar with WH40k in general before playing and now working on this mod.

Alright, cool. :)
I'll see new episodes of 40k LP next week of next month then.

edit because of new ep of 40k lp:
YEAH! NEW EPISODE THE LP! :D

And i thought the OpenXcom Extended 40k fairy was just a bedtime story.

Time to watch it now! 8)

With the end of February in the campaign, my second base is almost up and running! Now it just needs equipment, a craft, and live bodies to staff it. If you're interested in splitting off from the main crew to man strike team number two, let me know!

Okay, boss! :)
I'll watch EP 13 of it later if i'm not tired for today, i know the guardies like. 8)



edit (just for a like):
Speaking of which, when first watched (but finished watching) the new episode today instead of later.
Do Ogryns get fond of using lasguns in training in the 40k mod? Not the tabletop or/along video games, movies, TVS and other versions of 40k. ???
As far as 40k and their lore goes, their big guys right? ???

Though the training (excercise) mission kinda reminds of 6 year old game Planetside 2's VR Training Facility map too :D, and oh yeah; i'm not gonna be forgetting Planetside 2 videos again anymore since i mentioned it. ;D
http://planetside.wikia.com/wiki/VR_Training_Facility

btw, i liked the Heavy Stubber in this mod since it was my first time seeing the gunfire of it in the mod instead of the VG or other things. :) (https://openxcom.org/forum/Themes/InsidiousV1-k/images/post/thumbup.gif)
https://youtu.be/KitJsLiqjTM?list=PLkcoV_pZgGtJjYhGk25lHW93wR_cyt_It&t=1694

I get fond of non-ballistic/conventional MGs and Miniguns/Chainguns (including Cannons) a lot, specially Gauss ones too. ^_^

edit:
Finally episode came out today!  ;D Maybe after this, i'm gonna be getting a long shower will quick to help me stay up, and start doing something really important for me to play more of my own game (well), some vanilla with OG elements and 8 mods i might be using instead along OXCE+ Visuals; maybe OXCE+V optional or not, who cares. :-\
@Otto/ohartenstein23 (don't ignore this post please. 🤤)
Otto..... otto.....
while i was watching the new episode of the LP, i'm at 1:23 minutes away from the end of it.
I was so shocked about this. :o

^ That was from the training mission, silly. They got a lot of attribute improvements because they all got to make a lot of attacks against the unmoving targets.

Yeah, i know. That got me shocked while watching it 2 days ago. XD

That was so damn cool for me to see. :)

edit:
let's wait for Otto to do more episodes or maybe make some nice or mean replies on this thread (if he's good and busy); you heard what i mean. :-\

MERGE MY POST WITH PREVIOUS POST PLEASE BEFORE READING! I WANNA SAY SOMETHING NICE BUT COOL TO OTTO ON THERE WILL QUICK. don't anger me. ;D

--- if you insist; posts merged - Solarius Scorch ---
 @Solarius Scorch. Thanks! I was needing that to excite Otto for me watching his coolies! ;)
@Otto/ohartenstein23
You're the man, Otto! ;)

keep it up while i watch EP 18 and more, keep it up! :)(https://openxcom.org/forum/Themes/InsidiousV1-k/images/post/thumbup.gif) +100

edit:
speaking of which, don't Commissars specialize with pistols and swords (e.g chainswords?) or something else instead of these?  ???

just to be honest (https://youtu.be/e57-xskaa8E?list=PLkcoV_pZgGtJjYhGk25lHW93wR_cyt_It&t=1303)

In the latest episode of this LP (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFwVs9vApow), I give a preview of some new script code I've been working on to model crew-served weapon emplacements. I'd like to hear your opinions on the idea, and whether or not you'd like to see this replace some of the IG's heavy weapons like the heavy bolter, mounted lascannon, and mounted autocannon. The handheld variants will probably remain but get the extra TU penalty for overweight so that they can be used by Ogryn and particularly beefy Guardsmen.

Also, once I've cleaned up the script slightly, I'll be posting a standalone mod of the turret I previewed for testing it out in "vanilla" UFO.

Edit: Here's the topic for the standalone mod. (https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,6874.0.html)

With the completion of the latest requisitions (https://youtu.be/aVmUakSE7Ek), the regiment can now promote some of their guardsmen to officers! We have three billets available, so let me know if you'd either like your guardsman to be promoted, or if you'd like a completely new officer to be hired. I'll hand them out on a first come, first serve basis.

Sweet! I nominate Bulletdesigner to be the first one
Title: Re: Let's Play: WH40k

bulletdesigner is already a Commissar, becoming an Imperial Guard Officer would be a demotion.

Post by: The Reaver of Darkness on February 08, 2019, 08:58:11 pm
Really!? I don't see myself as officer material. :P

But Brave Reaver does as she is told.
Title: Re: Let's Play: WH40k
Post by: ohartenstein23 on February 08, 2019, 08:59:37 pm
Don't worry, you won't be an officer unless you volunteer. I can just recruit generic officers if nobody else is interested.
Title: Re: Let's Play: WH40k
Post by: The Reaver of Darkness on February 08, 2019, 09:09:59 pm
((I wanted to specifiy: it was a very kind offer and I'm flattered. Brave Reaver is sometimes too shy but might just need a kick to become greater. She just won't admit her own strengths sometimes.))

I'd say take anyone else if they volunteer, but you can promote Brave Reaver if you think she'd be a good officer.

Also I nominate Yataka Shimaoka's character if he has one (I'm not sure)((if not, you should getcherself an officer)), and also Bullet Designer.
Title: Re: Let's Play: WH40k
Post by: ohartenstein23 on February 08, 2019, 09:51:14 pm
Yataka is Gabrielle Maximus, and the both of you can be officers if nobody volunteers before the next episode.

bulletdesigner is a Commissar already.

Heh, looks like we might all four be high rank soon. =)

Also I nominate Starving Poet. Couldn't remember the name earlier. I am terrible with names. :P
