I just lost all my progress on Update 9 that I was trying to push out since I wasn't sure I was gonna have time Saturday, so sucks to say but you'll have to wait till Monday.

Sorry.

On the bright side, I have all the images and only lost the story (Which had to have been my best to date not gonna lie) so that's good.

Breaking news: Mann Vs. Mod postponed, author caught attacking convicted criminal "Unpainted Bill the Taunter". Assisted by co-illustrator, the duo mowed down the opposing team. Innocent, or guilty? Who knows.

>>Return to first page

Update 9
Spoiler:
Image
Coldfront, the location for some of the most heated battles between RED and BLU. While it isn't common to see a shoot out or any huge amount of fighting, it became famous for other things. This includes the daring escapades of spies stealing intelligence, explosions on a mass scale from a sabotage, and killing sprees that would strike fear into a veterans heart. Yes, Coldfront almost seemed like a movie set for some Spy Action Thriller.
Spoiler:
Image
Alas, that was no longer the case. The Mods had taken over some time ago, nobody really knew when. There had been a long and drawn out battle between them, but it ultimately ended in defeat for both RED and BLU. There were rumors about the way the Mods got rid of the bodies blocking the doors and paths.
Spoiler:
Image
Sadly, most of these rumors were true.
Spoiler:
Image
Soldiers stood at every corner, looking out towards the horizon to find traces of life that may stumble their way to the Mod ruled base.
Spoiler:
Image
In the distance though, was a lone BLU spec, watching their every move.
Spoiler:
Image
"I-It's freaking freezing out here! Can we hurry this up?" Crash's teeth chattered as he spoke into the radio.

"Then hurry up and give us some intel so we can get through this faster Crash." Patrick's voice crackled through the radio, irritated at Crash's constant remarks of the cold.

"Yeah yeah, whatever."
Spoiler:
Image
"There appears to be a few Snipers keeping lookout, but they can't see much with all this snow."

"But there's not that much snow," Aidan said.

"Robot vision is really bad in the snow man, don't know what to tell you. That's why it took them so long to take this place." Crash glanced around the area, looking for more points of interest.
Spoiler:
Image
"Towards BLU there seems to be some defense, but not very much. Their right side is especially bare."
Spoiler:
Image
"They all seem pretty intent on guarding those boxes. Supplies must be getting low. Hey, what do robots eat and drink anyway?-"

"CRASH!" Patrick yelled.

"AGH, yeah yeah I know! Jeez, I'm just curious is all. By the way, there's a sentry on lookout over there, so be careful," Crash added.
Spoiler:
Image
"I recommend using that hallway if you can. Seems to be a serious lack of security." Crash finished and unscoped, sighing. "Freezing my balls off just to point out things they can clearly see."
Spoiler:
Image
The rest of the squad made their way past the courtyard and sat perched on a cliff overlooking the area outside the BLU base.
Spoiler:
Image
"Alright listen," Enzo began, looking around, "I think I can sneak past that one Soldier over there."

"Are you serious?" Aidan asked, glancing over to Enzo.
Spoiler:
Image
Enzo stood and pulled out a cigarette case. "Of course, these idiots will believe anyone if they have some sort of hat. I can take them." He cloaked off and walked away, his footsteps muffled by the snow.
Spoiler:
Image
"You think he'll make it?" Patrick asked.

"Nah," Aidan replied.
Spoiler:
Image
Enzo approached the Mod and shouted, "YOU THERE!"
Spoiler:
Image
The Mod stiffened and his motor whirled, turning to face Enzo. "SIR, YES, SIR!" it shouted.

"Get over to mid this instant! We need more hands to burn those bodies Soldier, MOVE IT!" he shouted, pointing towards mid.
Spoiler:
Image
The bot immediately hauled ass and made their way towards mid, yelling for people to get out of his way.
Spoiler:
Image
"Well whaddya know, the old man did it." Aidan looked around and nodded to Patrick, giving the go ahead to move on.
Spoiler:
Image
Enzo rubbed his chin and turned to face the two Users. "Listen, I already scouted ahead and it doesn't look pretty."
Spoiler:
Image
"They've got the area on lock down for some reason, must be something important going on somewhere."
Spoiler:
Image
"That's why I'll be doing this next part alone. I'll need you two to stay back and keep hidden. If I need backup, you guys can push in and rescue me." Enzo gave one last glance around and nodded. "Stay safe."
Spoiler:
Image
Cloaking, Enzo made it around the corner and out of the sight of the Mods. As he uncloaked he took a peak around the corner. "Alright good, nobody saw me."
Spoiler:
Image
He quickly began making his way towards the main room which housed all important information.
Spoiler:
Image
He stopped though, his eyes widening as he looked in horror at the picture in front of him. "Oh my god..." he whispered. It was a nuke, a giant nuke sitting in the base. Was that there before? It couldn't have been, he would've noticed for sure. Enzo shook his head, thinking of what might happen to all of them if this thing launched. Luckily, it looked like it wasn't ready to launch just yet, meaning they had some time to destroy it.

Enzo took a few snapshots of the nuke before continuing, his mind still in disbelief of what he saw.
Spoiler:
Image
"So ok, humor me here. Why the hell are we infiltrating some cold fort that wasn't even a major part of the war?" Crash asked, scouting the area still for when they needed to escape. "Also, why don't I get my REGULAR gun? This hunk piece of crap looks like it ain't too stealthy."
Spoiler:
Image
"Quit your whining, without that gun you'd probably be as blind as those Mods. Variable zoom, thermal, night vision... That thing is a great sniper." Patrick smiled and leaned back on a wall.

"Our mission is to sneak in and obtain all the info we can on what's going on here. Measure up their defenses you know? They figured that the Mods still haven't looked through all the files on the computer, what with them just winning the base, so we're allowed to destroy those files. Otherwise, orders specifically said not to touch anything so that they don't realize we were ever here. It doesn't make much sense though to be honest, why wouldn't they want ALL info destroyed and out of the hands of their enemy? I get it's supposed to be the whole 'leave everything untouched to give us the upper hand' but it just feels off." Aidan tinkered with his medigun before sighing, annoyed at the vagueness and conflicting nature of the mission.
Spoiler:
Image
"Well, he's the boss. If they want that info in enemy hands, let them have it." Patrick twiddled his fingers and cracked his neck.
Spoiler:
Image
"You think there might be something else going on? That's why they don't want us going through too much stuff? After all, Enzo is taking the flash drive part. I mean we are RED members technically, we might find something about a battle plan for the war or uh... Some other major war document." Crash rubbed his eyes and sniffled.
Spoiler:
Image
Aidan bit his lip. "That's a big possibility, but who knows." There was something going on here, Aidan knew it. What though?
Spoiler:
Image
The last control point was empty. Strange, but good news. They must still be low on Mods from their battle against the Users here. Enzo sneaked towards the door and opened it slowly.
Spoiler:
Image
Plugging his flash drive into a computer, he began to copy and remove files in the system. Hearing voices, he peered into the other room to examine what appeared to be a meeting going on.
Spoiler:
Image
"Tell me Scout, what has your team recovered about the bases I asked you to examine?" the bot in a hat asked, their voice seeming very familiar.
Spoiler:
Image
"According to the report, most of the bases are either on their last legs or abandoned. They'll be easy to take over with a small group of Mods. Mannhattan is still recovering from the attack, but otherwise seems to be up and running. Not sure if we can crack that nut again, they are a lot more defended than last time." The Scout clanged and shook, his motor producing a steady line of smoke.
Spoiler:
Image
"You let me worry about that. Demo, what do you have for me? How's the battlefront going?" bot in a hat demanded, the voice shaking Enzo.
Spoiler:
Image
"With the addition of BLU to the war, it seems that they're keeping our forces at bay for now in their major cities. However, we predict that eventually they will run out of supplies, or Users, and will be forced to surrender. We will win, slowly but surely." The Demo's gears spun and he coughed, a black cloud of smoke flying out.
Spoiler:
Image
Bot in a hat chuckled, a mechanical, heartless, chuckle. "They offered me so much to join their cause. 'We're going to destroy Chao Island. If you join us, we promise to make it worth your while. Money, power, material objects. If you join us to destroy Chao Island, we promise to give you whatever your heart desired.'" Hat bot stood for a moment, their engine giving a soft hum. "Thing is though, the moment they said 'We're going to destroy Chao Island' I was already in."
Spoiler:
Image
"I, Renaethecat, will destroy Chao Island if it's the last thing I do." She declared, yelling these words as though everyone on Chao Island could hear her.
Spoiler:
Image
"So that's who you are..." Enzo took the flash drive out of the computer and cloaked, quietly taking pictures of any other important documents in the room before making his exit.
Spoiler:
Image
Suddenly, a voice crackled through the radio. "Can you two hear me? I need you to meet me back at Crash's position as fast as you can. I'll explain when I get there." Enzo's voice disappeared as fast as it appeared and the two looked at each other.

"Let's head out," Patrick said, making his way down the tunnel, Aidan right behind him.
Spoiler:
Image
Back at Crash's position, the three silently waited for the approach of Enzo. "W-Where the bloody hell is he?" Crash asked, looking around for any signs of him.
Spoiler:
Image
A figure decloaked next to them and jogged to their position. "You guys, there's a lot of stuff I need to tell you, but there's especially something I need to tell you now," he said.
Spoiler:
Image
"What? They have some big bad army of bots? I think we can handle that yo." Aidan asked, sarcasm dripping from his voice.
Spoiler:
Image
"No, but... uh..." Enzo stopped and thought a moment before continuing, "...Renae is their leader and it looks like she's going to be attacking Mannhattan soon..." Enzo's voice trailed off at the end as he made his own conclusion to where that nuke he saw was going. They never specifically said it but he knew. That had to be where it was going.
Spoiler:
Image
"What?!" The three cried, fear striking their faces.

"They convinced Renae to join them? But... How? Why?" Patrick declared, stammering through the words.
Spoiler:
Image
"I don't know Patrick, I was just as surprised as you. In any case, there's a lot more I need to tell and show you all about what I saw in there, so let's move out and head back to base. They need to know about this." The squad packed up and began to march back to the spot they had parked Crash's van.

Enzo hadn't told them about the nuke, unsure if that was info he was at liberty to tell them. The nuke was news to him as well after all, their top Spy, so clearly it was something top secret. What he did know about the files on their computer, and what was inside them. He wouldn't be showing them those though. Orders from the top said to keep all that under wraps from these three. So he guessed that the nuke was supposed to be under wraps too. For now, he'd simply tell them that the Mods had read through the files, and that they must have copied and deleted the important stuff. Sure, he'd show them a file or two with a log of communication between two important Mods, but otherwise they'd be entirely in the dark.

Oh the joy for the life of a Spy. Always deceiving those around him. Foe or not.

They're making a moonbase
The clear plot twist here is that the nuke lands on the moon, and the mercs have to fly there to defeat Renae once and for all!

bone merger tool
works with both, it "locks" the weapon/hats to the bones, so they look exactly like in-game

Be warned though, the weapons don't connect unless you're using animated props (Which is what I use to make them stand perfectly, aside from good ol fashion phys gun posing). If you're using something without animated props, just made the weapon have no collision and you can manually pose it.
