Arabian Campaign

The Arabian Campaign is one of the biggest and most successful projects in the history of Original War. Its plot is based on Altar's original notes (OW creators), which could be found in the game's data folders. Play as the mercenary commander, Heike Steyer, and lead your Sheikh's troops to victory... or betray them and take a major part in creating the Legion. New maps, super interesting plot, complex missions, thousands of SAIL code lines and non-linear gameplay. It's more complex than 99% of the common mods and maybe even the original campaigns. Prepare for a serious OW-ArCamp addiction.

This is the same mod as "The Arabian Campaign WIP" but due to circumstances beyond our control that workshop item was corrupted and thus no longer functional. To get the newest updates you have to subscribe to this mod. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Believe it or not, the texture of each map is actually a picture that's "painted" over the default texture. Since noone knows how Altar made the original textures the standard approach when creating a new one is to copy-paste from existing maps (roughly speaking). It can easily take several days to make one.

Wait, how come you have to photoshop it ? You just cant change the texture with original war map editor ? :o

Thx :) As stated in the description not all missions have textures (which means they have the default editor textures which aren't very pretty). Neither me nor 0dd1 have the photoshop skills to put such together so we rely on sporadic volunteers.

Very very very good mod. I had a blast playing this mod. Definetly worth trying if you love OW. I just wanted to ask, i just finished legion part and im staying with the Arabs, but the maps look incomplete, very odd colors. Is there still someone working on this ? :)

I made a translation of the last missions for the Legion on the russian language, I can share with the authors modification.

After long fight i finally finish campaign on both sides. The mod is really worth recommendation. Many new interesting objectives, new look at the whole conflict. Easily 30-40h more playtime at just normal difficulty trying to get all the medals. There are still small problems and a little lack of feedback in new things. Still if you like original campaign, you will like this one. Caution, once you finish mission 11, prepare for much higher difficulty and planning 3 missions ahead.

Thanks for the praise :)

Such a great campaign, even better than original story. You moved the borders of the game so far, thank you very much.
