Vietnam Total Mod (W.I.P)
« on: January 04, 2012, 08:22:37 am »
Hello All!
First of all, THIS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wx0k7U56xpc&feature=related gotta be the theme!
I just love that song + it is a vietnam war song :DDDDD Tell me your opinion about the classic 60's ;)

Well however, I'm currently working on a Vietnam War Total Mod - here are the basic ideas (May be much in your opinion)

Name: Vietnam - 1946-1976
Scenarios:
French begin the Indochina War, 1946.
Viet-Minh fight the French 1954, Dien Bien Phu.
Vietnam is split in 2 - North, the communist and south, the capitalist.
South Vietnam and North Vietnam start a war.
America sends Advisors to help South Vietnam in war, 1956.
A bloody war between the U.S. Military and South Vietnam fighting against the NVA (North Vietnamese Army) and VC (Viet Cong).
The Vietnam War.

Well back to the mod  ;)
You will struggle for survival in following different battles:
1946 - 1954 (French and Vietminh)

Hill Defense (1953)
The French are Defending a hill from Viet-Minh, which seems to be getting overrun.

Convoy (1949)
A convoy of the French is Ambushed by a way to big force of vietminh.
A loss is sure, but atleast some Vietminh will die with us!

Bunker (1946)
The french prepare to attack a Vietminh bunker.

Dien Bien Phu - Gabrielle (1954)
The fortified hill gabrielle is being attacked by Vietminh battalions and heavy artillery.

U.S. Army and Marines vs NVA and Vietcong

Bombcrater:
U.S. Marines are defending a bomb crater from reinforcing NVA forces at the Bo Ho Woods. (1968)

Battle for Hue:
U.S. Marines battle the Vietcong for the Citadel of Hue. (1968)

Red Dawn:
U.S. Army soldiers fight the Vietcong in the jungle. (1967)

A-Shau Valley:
Soldiers from the U.S. Army try to capture the well fortified Hill 937 in the Ashau valley, Nicknamed "Hamburger Hill". (1969)

Khe Sanh:
U.S. Marines defend the Khe Sanh combat base. (1968)


More maps/ideas coming soon.

Tell me what you think, and if you want to help me somehow.

FINISHED MAPS:
Supply Defence (1966)
Hill 796 (1967)

Well let me start off by saying that I'm happy with your enthusiasm, but it takes more than enthusiasm to construct a mod of this scale.

I'm willing to help you with some of the interface Gfx work if you want, but don't expect too much, as I'm prepping for college again.

With these formalities out of the way, what experience do you have with map making/sound effects/in game graphics? If you don't have any former experience with these prior to starting this mod, get ready for a world of frustration. Remember, you might get a few sound files for explosions, or rifle shots, from other people, but the majority of the work will need to be done by you.

http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=36880.0 You can take what you want from this link. For more specific weapons, just ask.

I mod 2D and some 3D game textures and sprites etc already since 2006, i personally have much fun modding 2D games especially easy ones like soldat :D.
