The last 10 days (and until the model is finished and textured), André aka Torix has been making the mutated Ucanax model.

Here’s what it looks like so far:

Modular Combat 2 Special Live Stream

April 06, 2018

One of our new modelers is just about to start working on the Mutant Scientist (aka Ucanax) model.

We are going to do something most game developers don't do; that is show you in real time from start to finish the creation of a 3D character model. Please note that it is a long and slow process so some of you might consider it boring.

Starting today, every day at 5PM EST to 7PM EST Torix will live stream creation of this character model. Some days Torix might not be able to work on it so...

Engine Change

April 05, 2018

We were originally planning on devloping Modular Combat 2 in the Unity engine but after reviewing shortfall's in it we have decided not to use it. Modular Combat 2 will instead be built in the Unreal engine.

Aside from much better graphics quality, the game (and demo) will be more stable.

In other news, we don't have any new screenshots to share right now, but in a few weeks we should have something for you....

Let's Play Together Aka Game Nights

April 05, 2018

Lately, interest in Modular Combat has been revived with lots of players complaining that the servers are all empty.

7PM EST is equal to times in the following timezones:

  • 6PM CST
  • 4PM PST
  • 12AM UTC
  • 11PM (UTC+10)

Full Demo Reveal, New Websites & Steam Greenlight!

April 05, 2018

In an effort to get the demo Greenlit, we have released everything it will contain. Here's a few highlights:

  • All 3 teams are aliens. Nanites, Mutant Scientists and Hostile Plants.
  • Map will take place on a space station and include elements from 2 popular maps (dm_richland and dm_runoff).
  • Game will be darker, not quite horror but not quite happy either.

The team names may not be final ones and may change during development.

You can discuss the demo from...

Nanite Weapon Concept Art (modular Combat 2)

Our next concept art reveal is one of the Nanite weapons. This weapon is called "Freezer Burn" and it fires shards of ice which explode mid-air into smaller shards. Do enough damage and your target will freeze solid for a few seconds.

Concept Art Reveal

April 05, 2018

As mentioned last week, here is some information on what this character is:

It's a supercharged hyper-evolved artificial intelligent lifeform called a Nanite and it's one of the 3 playable teams. Their bodies are made of billions of small nanites and they can reform themselves into new shapes.

Each team has weapons themed for that team, with their own unique models and sounds. Nanite weapons (not modules) deal electrical and technology based elemental damage.

Here's a picture of the...

3 Teams
