NEWS!
I will be ending the official open beta phase now and work on a small patch to fix a few things. In light of this what are your guys suggestions on the immediate and essential changes or additions that should be made? So far my list is as follows:

-Add missing green heavy cavalry captain uniform texture
-Fix faulty spawn points on 2 maps
-Name capture zones to make them easily identifiable
-Create better visibility of capture points so that it is obvious who owns them at any time
-Add some kind of payoff for winning team (music?) so its not such a hollow thing when you win, to encourage playing for the objectives
-Lower musket/rifle accuracy

A competent scripters help would be appreciated for help with future releases



About the Mod:
CONQUEST is loosely based on the 7 years war. The mod is being built around the Conquest game mode which has been slightly altered so that players no longer spawn at their teams owned flags but at their teams initial spawn point throughout the game. The mod aspires to create a fun simulation of combat during the 7 years war time period and offers a large number of customization options for each troop type to allow players to create their own unique regiments. The combat system has been created to reward skilled players and offer fun options for different interests.


A Word from the Mod Maker:
The main interest I have in creating this mod is in trying to create a realistic (as much as possible) 7 years war combat simulation. I didn't live back then and experience the combat myself, but I'll do the best I can to paint a picture that is as accurate as possible in this mod. I also always thought it would be interesting for people to be able to create their own regiments and make their own uniforms, which is why I've gone out of my way to create a large number of customization options for each troop type, so that players can pick their own uniforms and have a unique look that differs from other player made regiments. I've also tried to balance the troop classes correctly, giving each a slight advantage over their "nemesis" class but not to the point that skill won't determine the winner. Most importantly I want combat to actually reward the good players instead of the spazzers. I've played many mods and they all seem to end in spazzing or players having too many choices of things to fling at one another. That being said, I'm happy with what I've been able to put together so far and plan to continue expanding upon it.


Currently the mod features:

Factions:
Yellow
Blue
Red
Green
Purple
Black

Troop Types:
Riflemen
Infantry
Light Cavalry
Heavy Cavalry

Ranks:
Private
Sergeant
Lieutenant
Captain

Overhauled combat sounds

Ranged gunfire and bullet impact sounds  ---  Video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWcVoMvyKmU&feature=youtu.be
Several other smaller things

Efficient models/textures ready for large scale battles!
400 bots in a moshpit = 0 lag for my sub-par computer with M&B graphics at about medium quality (everything on except AntiAlialising and shadows)

Future Objectives:

-Objective point names
-More animation improvements
-Musicians
-Training faction and a useful training map for easy regimental training
-More custom sounds
-More maps
-More custom placeables
-More officer ranks (colonel - general)
-Single player (nothing groundbreaking, but a simple and functional one)
-Better balance for multiplayer bots
-Better NPC formations system

(speaking as third in command of the black brunswickers and participant in the closed aplha/beta)

One of the great and interesting things for regiments will be the ability to customize a uniform, first there are 6 colour factions to chose from, 4 different style uniforms, and then 4 different style lapeles, in many different colours. It will take a while untill all possible combinations are taken, and its will be interesting for regiments so regiments can be identified.

we have already been beta testing for a while so the next batch of beta testers will enter a semi-balanced/balanced beta. All in all for a pretty much one person made mod (excluding the making of the maps) its pretty damn good and will continue to be improved (guaranteed). it has potential and i do recommend everybody to at least give it a try.

Great work so far is all i can say.

Its the Fire and Sword Volley fire, which was added in the latest patch. Doesn't work as well as I'd like though, I'll be trying to find or make a new system for that later.

Heres a video of me messing around with Andreas on RISK to show off some of the combat sounds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBdHa13B4lY&feature=youtu.be

This might be the musket mod in development I like the most. I like how you go for accuracy without historical countries. It will allow much more flexibility which will be much beneficial.

Keep it up.

Good luck boys! This mod sounds like a general get on, and shoot your friend to pieces type game. ME GUSTA. Can't wait to sign up and show it off. P.s: nice animations. I applaud your usage of proper loading animations, especially considering the height of the musket.
If you dont have a condom, try to pull out early. If this doesnt work, turn it into a legitimate rape, because the female body has ways of shutting that down.

In single player there will certainly be an accurate game map, but single player is not my main interest so it will not be finished until sometime down the road. Multiplayer will be created around the Conquest game-mode and will feature some high-quality maps based on different real world locations.

Spearing! Hope your doing well old chap, and thank you for the kind words, that reload animation was a real bastard to make!

One of my main reasons for using the RISK theme was to do just that, I think it will be alot of fun without historical factions/regiments etc. Here you'll have to make your own history! :wink:
