Wait so you added WW1 battle against other humans, but why? Surely the alien threat is more serious, or will you make a lore reason for the War?

Hahaha yes, but those human vs human battles are separated. They aren't in the campaign, only in the battle generator. It's name is FRONTLINES, as a mock to BF1's Operations. 

One of the first things I wanted to do when we started this project a year ago was to have real WW1 battles. And to be honest, an human opponent is more equal to the player's troops. You know, they are as soft as us.

Martians are toughter and our initial weapons are somewhat ineffective. Against humans no. A shot or two is enough to put down an enemy.

Also have you seen the great war of the worlds mockumentary? I can link one in English if you want, it would be really good inspiration, for example the Martain metal and dark matter guns as described during the war in the mockumentary.

Do you mean The Great Martian War? Sure, that's one of my favorite mockumentary of all the time. If you pay attention to details, a few in-game screens have images of TGMW. Some references are from that movie, like the Martian Metal (and later, Dark Matter)

If you have a link for the full version, I'll be forever grateful, is been a long time since I saw it.

Ok I see, here's a link that I used to watch it, it's not very high quality but it works.

Thanks a lot, Thunderwing280.

If there is any WW1 battle that you may like to see in the mod, let us know. ;)

A new weapon joins the armory, this time is the semi-automatic rifle Selbstlader M1915 (based on the real life Mauser M1916, on the lore of the game, entered service a year earlier than in our timeline).

This rifle stands out for its precision at medium and long range, equipped with a Warner & Swasey Model 1913 Prismatic Musket Scope to increase the accuracy of the weapon.

However, it is terrible in closed combat, it should be avoided as much as possible to get close to the enemy. Its fire rate is just too slow. Pick your favorite melee weapon instead. ;)

This rifle will be available in the next published update and can be purchased along with the rest of the Tier 2 weapons via research.

It will also be used by the various NPCs in normal missions against Martian invaders and German enemies in Frontlines missions. :D

Also, some weaks to improve some weapons, like the Mondragón rifle and the BAR, both in sprites and stats. You can see the old version on the images, below the new sprites. Also, if your weapon has a bipod, if you knee down you have a great accuracy bonus (most LMGs have bipods, but also some automatic guns like the Ribeyrolles Automatic Carbine).

Special thanks to Kzer-Za, we are implementing his updated non-random wounds script with many weapons and ammo. The melee weapons use the script, also high powered ammo. The K Bullets used by the whole Tier 2 weapons have better wounding capacity than the basic ammo of the Tier 1.

Join us at our Discord, we publish some quick updates before the main Release is live on mod.io! ;D

Thanks, mate!

Yeah!  8) I'm preparing a new translation file for you. But I want to rework all of the planned weapon War Codex entries (The new name of the UFOPedia) before send it to you, so you don't have to rewrite again and again everything. :D

A new update is ready now.

v.0.6.2 On Ne Passe Pas!

The new French update is here. Among several bugfixes, French soldiers are available for purchase, as well as their armament. Many issues from the preview posted on Discord a week ago, found by BlackStaff, SG_Barton and ? ? ?, were fixed. The full list of changes is on the changelog

The name of this update comes from the mythical order of General Robert Nivelle, "Ils ne passeront pas", 'They shall not pass' given to French soldiers defending the Fortified Zone of Verdun in 1916.

However, 'On ne passe pas' was used informally among the letters soldiers sent home, as a sign of courage and resistance.

In our alternate timeline, the Martians are besieging Verdun since Spring 1914 and a very important mission in the game campaign is to free Verdun from the claws of the invaders.

The new update is available to the public on the mod.io page available in the profile description, but we launched previews with previous content on our Discord server!

Special thanks to Luke83 for making and fixing all of the maps of the mod (and all of the maps of our projects), Hobbes for helping me solving some issues with the map generation of the three-stage Verdun mission and Warboy for helping me fixing issues related to Geoscape & BlackStaff for helping with historic references, the French translation and War Codex entries for the French weapons.

Hahaha there is a lot of new translations, but I want to include the extraStrings for the next update too (including new warplanes), that's why I'm taking so long. I'll send the file as soon as I finish it. ;)

Today is TGWotW Thursday!

For the past week we have been working on creating new terrains by mixing Trenches with other maps to give some variety. This time, Forest Trenches! In a collaborative work of me, Luke83 and with the help of Ohartenstein23 we were able to include new mapblocks via mapScripts. Let's remember that the No Man's Land mapblocks include a lower Dirt level that made it a little complex to mix with other mapsets.

Our intention is to modify some mapblocks of Trincheras to smooth their introduction in maps with grass, in the following days we will continue with this work.

Also, BlackStaff and I continue to improve the translations of the mod into French and Spanish to make it easier for French speakers and Spanish speakers to enjoy the mod.
