Faces of War [WW2]

Dear Community,
Lacking manpower even after merging with Hell in The Pacific, we decided for a "DLC-like" thematic release schedule with every release focusing on a certain Operation. Hereby, on the 73rd anniversary of Operation Galvanic, in the name of Faces of War Dev. Team I'm releasing our first public alpha, featuring the assault on Japanese-held Betio island by the USMC.

But there's more!
The assets, infact, are not limited to the pacific theatre, British and Germans soldiers that fought on the western front are included in this first package.

Here a quick list of what you can find in this first release:

  • 4 factions (UK, GER, US, JAP) including many uniform variants and vests
  • 2 vehicles (LCVP, Willys Jeep)
  • 3 weapons per faction (Rifle, SMG, LMG)
  • 1 map : Betio Tarawa
  • bolt action system - you can either use manual bolting module (bolt cycling on clicking) or stick to the default system which triggers bolt operation upon releasing the mouse button
  • A module that limits the usage of the items stored in the backpack

 

It's Alpha because...

  • Weapons have no reloading animations
  • Majority of the island and some other assets are not up to Arma 3 standards
  • sounds are placeholders and their configuration is far from perfect

...But other than that it's fully functional and playable.

We're hoping to recruit some really talented artists (modelers, texturers, animators) from our playerbase to help us polish and extend the mod in the future.

Thanks and enjoy!

I've just had a quick play with it and its a cracking start to the mod especially the British, i've been waiting for ages to have someone get some Brits out so kudos to you!

 

Only issue I've had so far was with the M1919, as it shoots sideways the rest all work good!

The models for the units and weapons are fantastic! They are so very well done.

 

But why are the Axis factions under BLUFOR and the Allies as Independent?

Thats how it was in Iron Front so the US and the Russians COULD be on the same map fighting the Germans, otherwise ARMA wouldnt allow blue and red to fight greenfor.. I think anyway :p

A little off topic here, but is the team working on Hell in the Pacific the same ones that made the Hell in the Pacific mod for the original Medal of Honor game?

Excellent alpha release! This mod is probably the first of its kind in the game so far. High quality models, textures, and sounds, plenty of factions, weapons, and equipment, unobtrusive, and easy to install. Very good, great work.
