The Wrench - August 2018

Recommended Posts

Hey Squaddies,
 
With the hot summer finally slowly coming to an end (yeah, we're totally ignoring your winter here, ChanceBrahh. Get on our hemisphere.) and Modding 2.0 coming closer and closer, we can really look forward to the future. For now, let's do a quick check of what happened in the past month and see what our Modding Community has been cookin' up.
 
Join us on the Community Modding Discord where you can join discussions and meet the modding community. It's a great place to share your ideas and passions with like-minded people that will happily help you create something awesome.

Skrunda-1 by Pyrokills

skrunda1.jpg
 
This map originally started out as a one to one replica of the real world location which is a Russian Military Radar Base disguised as a civilian town. As things went on the direction shifted into Pyrokills' interpretation of a STALKER/Fallout mashup. The current plan is to take the different zones of STALKER games and incorporate them together with Skrunda into a large 8x8km map. Will be interesting to see for sure!

Swedish Armed Forces by Kim "Megadeth" Norman and Team

The last few months have been exciting for people who are looking forward to new factions. This Wrench edition has a full force update from a lot of them including a newcomer to the scene! These two brave souls who are part of the Swedish Forces Pack from Arma3 are working on introducing the Swedes to Squad now. Skön!

Training Range Map by IIResidentII

A very nice Training Range map is currently in the works by IIResidentII who is building it for his platoon, Salagi, to train in different conditions. It includes a plethora of different ranges and will be available on the Steam Workshop in the future.

Squad Zombie Mod by Smed & S1RHAWK

No, Smed isn't talking about the new players (ahem... future squad leaders!) on free weekends of Squad, he made a real, PVP players vs zombie mod! Armed Forces are fighting to eradicate two zombie hives while fighting against endless waves of spawning (player)-zombies in this fun addition to the Squad mod scene.

AI Civilians Mod by |HSR| Antol

 

Antol has been working steadily on his AI behavior for civilians and the progress looks great already! With the help of community members Mitsu and wasti, he was able to create one of the main behaviors for his AI, featured in the video above.

Canadian Armed Forces by CAFMod Team

 

Progress has been steady in the Canadian Armed Forces Mod. With the player models currently being expanded to take new gear into account (backpacks, new Tactical Vests), modelers have been working on finishing up the Carl Gustaf M2 and put some final touches the base C7A2 while continuing to work on the attachments and accessories for it. (Cadex Front Grip, C79A2 scope, M203A1, etc.) Furthermore, the first public playtest happened! While it only included infantry and a placeholder scope, people seemed to have a blast (especially with the C7A2 sounds by TheScrub), eh?

Schiessplatz Wichlen by Alac

Ah, Switzerland! Home of great things like cheese, Heidi, Helvetica, cute knives, and our community member Alac. They're working on creating a training map based on a real-life training location in Switzerland. Compared to the other training maps around, this one is aimed at vehicle combat and is already being prepared for the release of MBTs.

Finnish Defense Forces by FDFMod

fdf_mod1.jpg
 
Compared to the Swedes, these guys are already well-established in the community and get begged for updates on our Discord quite often! After some quiet months, they are back with goodies made over the summer. Some of the smaller gear has already been implemented in-engine and some new weapons like the 81mm mortar and the KvKK (courtesy of the Arma FinMod team, who they are now collaborating with) are in the High Poly modeling stage. On the mapping side of things, they are working on creating props and buildings, as well as incorporating them into the world.

Mount Storm Mod by [TACO] Moosieus

moose1.jpg
 
Based around Lake Storm in West Virginia this map by Moosieus (a.k.a. A rather small moose) is defined by dense forests, a large reservoir lake which is flanked by power plants and a wind farm to the east. He's also kindly supplied some animations to bask in.

If you see all these mods and wonder: "These are great, but where can I really play some mods?" NG has got you covered! New Generation have launched their custom server and it's now public! You can try the best mods and maps the community has to offer and they plan on adding content over time. In addition to hosting weekly events every Wednesday, the server is permanently open for all to play.

As a note: We're aware that some of the Sketchfab embeds aren't 100% working, but the links beneath them should supplement until they do. We'll keep poking at it from our side -- it looks related to the forums.

I feel like it's a bit too complicated, the best logos are often the most simplistic ones imo, like the current wrench logo, it does all it needs to do.

Ha ha, I think it's too plain jane the current wrench logo.  It needs some flash and romance, heat, and intensity, flare and grabs your eye and makes you wanna join the wrench.

Nah, it needs to tell you what it's about within a second, and nothing more or less, that is all. And currently it does that.

It's about the guys who make the mods, and they are not plain guys represented by a plain logo....give us some heat,  a hundred mile an hour fast ball over the plate, a pitch that you can hit a home run off of, you know some originality.

Maybe:
