Hi,

No I only have the one with the short barrel.

I have to make up my mind yet.. I want to start with a Panzer III of With the Tiger 1.

But I have to know what TW plans to release.
If they plan to release the Panzer III in the next DLC.. then I'm not going to make one.
I wish they can comment on that.

I have the SDK now, so I can start to look into how they setup the tanks.

I will keep you posted.

I know they are working on the PzIII and that will be their next released tank, although I don't know if it will be the short L/42 length or long L/60 barreled 50mm cannon.

Still, a short or long barreled 75mm StugIII would put you in good graces with my unit; Stug Abt-245.:D

I can post pictures of them. there are some in the first post.
Don't know if you can see what versions they are.. I don't know the differences between versions (yet)

as for getting them ready for ro2.

I hope there are people here that want to do that.. that's why I posted I'm willing to donate a model to the person who thinks he needs one.

There is the pzIV already in ro2, so no need to make that one.
I believe tw is working on the pzIII, so no need to make that one.

I plan on modifying the pzIV to a StuGIV,
or do the Tiger 1.

I'm not sure yet.

the StuGIII should wait until tw releases the pzIII, as it's less work I guess to modify it then to do it from scratch.

All I need to do now is study the pzIV in the sdk, as udk is new for me.

Standing behind you
It may be common knowledge, but Ill just post the tank "segments" for reference, each is it's own static mesh.

- Driver Area: seat, fire extinguisher and steering equipment
- Hull Exterior: is the body hull and a very simplistic interior, the animated tracks are also part of this model.
- Turret exterior: The exterior turret without the gun mantlet or gun barrel
- Hull interior: The itnerior "body" of the tank, does not include turret, hull mg or driver equipment
- Hull MG interior: The seat, MG cupola and any radio equiptment are part of this model
- Interior Turret: The interior body of the turret, does not include the main gun or any seats
- Turret Details: "details" of the turret interior.. including optics, wires, mg ammunition, etc
-Turret Basket: Contains seats and any "lower details" from the turret
-Ammunition: Self explanatory.. ammunition storage
-Interior Gun base: The base of the tanks main gun, as seen from the interior
- External Gun base: The gun as it's mounted on the turret
- External MG base: The MG as it protrudes from the MG cupola
- Barrel extension: Extra length of a gun's barrel if the gun is multi-part


Aside from theres, there are also some details that differ between the tanks, such as the interior commander's cupola or any extra hull details.

Hi oldraven,you say you have play T34 vs Tiger so by any chance do you know to export the tank interiors from that game so that way we could easy have both t34-85 and the tiger :D that would save alot of time till we have tiger and 85 .

I'll take a look at the t34 vs tiger editor to see if it is worth a try to convert it somehow.
But those models are not very high rez..
I think you're better off modeling it from scratch.
If you have the right reference .. that shouldn't take long.

which would certainly be completely legal and wouldnt get you into trouble at all.

So you want an Artillery and a heavy tank destroyer on the small-medium ro2 maps???
And at least the ISU wasnt really common until the end of war anyways

Actually we already have the ISU 152 in RO1, made by modders.

You can see it here in the streets of Berlin:



It was more an self propelled tank, over the IS2 chasis than any arty concept. It was designed to face the KT and against bunkers. I think it would be necessary, but after we have the IS2 and so.
