CA Compatibility Mod - WWII Asset Pack

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I completed this mod some time ago and thought I would share. It's a CA compatible WWII Asset Pack mod. You will need to own the pack itself for this to work and the mod can be downloaded here:

 

"Original link deleted HERE"

 

After you have downloaded and unzipped, place the resulting folder in your saved games tech folder and you are good to go. All the vehicles can be located in the ME under CATEGORY "Armor". Each vehicle will be labelled e.g. *TigerII in the dropdown and are available for any country. The mod does not replace the existing asset and they will still be selectable as normal.

 

To my knowledge 3 items appear not to have collision models:

 

M2A1 HalfTrack

SDKFZ251

Higgins Boat

 

I have also given the Higgins Boat (named*HigginsWWIILC in the ME) the ability to get to the shoreline and lower it's ramp when it stops (when being driven in CA). Also the two half tracks will raise the armoured window slots for better visibility. Please enjoy.

 

UPDATE 18/04/19:

 

The pack has had to be updated owing to the fact that the WWII Assets pack has been adapted to use different Args for wheel and track animations. I have done my best to make sure this mod incorporates those changes but working blind is difficult. Here is a link to the updated mod pack.

Let me be the first to say,

 

 

Thank-You!

(How did you know?):D

 

 

Awesome work Mate!

 

 

Long Live the British Empire!

"Yeah, and though I work in the valley of Death, I will fear no Evil. For where there is one, there is always three. I preparest my aircraft to receive the Iron that will be delivered in the presence of my enemies. Thy ALCM and JDAM they comfort me. Power was given unto the aircrew to make peace upon the world by way of the sword. And when the call went out, Behold the "Sword of Stealth". And his name was Death. And Hell followed him. For the day of wrath has come and no mercy shall be given."

Hi Magot,

 

Thanks for the feedback but to be fair this is a mod and uses those elements that are currently available in the sims base code. It only provides CA functionality and just goes to show what can be achieved with a little effort. If the sights were currently available I would use them.

 

I am only sharing this now, as the wider WWII community has been asking for this for a while. I am not about to put serious effort into producing sight reticles for a payware item. For that I would suggest raising the issue with the developers, after all they benefited from the sales, not I. It is probably one of the reasons why CA is currently lacking in the pack.

 

I just hope you and other community members enjoy the mods additional benefits over the stock items. :thumbup:

Yes but does it work is is it static? In the screen above the range is set to point blank for the coaxial MG. Can the main gun range be set appropriately?

First you need Combined Arms, of course, then you need to add a tank to the map editor. You will also need to add a "battlefield commander" slot, I think it's called. It's on the tool bar in the mission editor. I think it's the icon with the two flags facing away from each other. You can select blue or red side, or both.

 

 

 

Run the mission and select the tank. There is a button on the map somewhere that allows you to occupy the vehicle. I can't remember where it is.

 

 

This is all from memory, so it should be enough to point you in the right direction.

hmmm I tried it. It was work on 10 minutes :)

 

 

Again you miss the point of course its possible as per my bespoke image below and yes I can make it work with the mod via JSGME but the real point is..... it should already be available without the need to use a mod.

Great mod!

 

What if I create a mission using this mod? Will other users without your mod be able to play that mission?

 

 

Edit: I just wondered if you could add Combined Arms support for WW2 AAA units like Flaks. That would be awesome.
