:eek: Great work, you know how to create new uniforms :D

I hope that project will be mixed with IOM ;)

So many people speak about the Western Front in this foprum and you just do it. And all we need now for authentic gameplay are maps maps maps. And some more late war weapons.


Maybe we could use maps like Myshkova and Winterwald (if it is possible to remove the Russian stuff) so we have 2 maps for the Battle of the Bulge (okay, the buildings looks very Russian, but it is just for the beginning).

And of course Omaha Beach (WIP) http://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=93521

You sent me off to find voice actors. And I've got 3 American voice actors lined up. These are proper voice actors with proper microphones. I also have scripts written up and everything. I've done this sort of thing before.

There's room for 1 more American voice. But that's it. Room for plenty of German voices.

So really anyone wanting to voice for the mod should contact me.

Looks great. What weapons/vehicles are you planning?
Nothing is set in stone, especially not for vehicles since they are the most difficult to create. For weapons, we most definitely want to have a Gewehr 43 and an StG 44. For now, we are using the G41 and MkB as placeholders since they are mostly the same when it comes to functionality.

For vehicles, it would be great to have a Sherman on the American side to counter the Panzer IV. Some form of transport vehicle would be great as well. We'll take whatever we can get and we'll work with what we have.

What exact texture files would I need to edit for the German uniforms. As I want to re-texture the German current M36 German uniform to a M42 or M43 German uniform. And maybe even try some Slate-grey shades some German uniforms were. I can extract them an everything but there's just a lot of options and i don't what ones the game actually uses.

Simply AWESOME! Great work and great pics. Was this entire project done by the two of you??!:eek:
So far, yes. We've been working on it for about a week now but we've come to a point where we need custom maps to get this playable online.
