  1. Downloaded and unzipped Mord's radio chatter mod v1.21 that I understand is for SF1 and SF2. Mac folder for the mods is Applications / CMSF2 / Data / Z (I have Vin's animated text working from there) but installed this and zilch, no sound from any vehicle whatsoever. Take this out and the sounds return OK. The voice mod also seems to result in very little verbal activity from the squads too (but that might just be down to doing a short test with two squads but not a sound when they've been given a move order and nothing when they spot enemy infantry. Not sure if it's a Mac issue, MY Mac with an issue or a mod compatibility problem. Shame was looking forward to using them both, binned for now
  2. Future task for modders (or BFC). "Wet looks" for vehicles, infantry and maybe objects in wet environmental conditions (rain, fog, mist...). The upper two pics is Aris original Stug IIIG late. The bottom one has the textures (with stock games muddy tag) slightly increased in color saturation, while the same time somewhat darkened and increased in contrast. Also added some crude normal maps with NVidia tools normal map creator. Difference is not huge, but most "weathering" is made only with consideration to dry environments and it doesn´t look that convincing in non dry conditions IMO.
  3. Contains invisible floating unit icons for standard CMBN + CW forces. Unpack into data/z folder. https://www.dropbox.com/s/bqq3xoi2p8rr6hs/Z_CMBN No Icons.rar?dl=0 This is not really a full mod. I consider this as experimental toolset for selectively replacing any existing FLOATING UNIT ICONS with invisible ones in CMBN (incl. CW forces). The main idea was to make enemy floating unit icons invisible, while the same time preserving the friendly ones (for quick access and overview), but also to add additional FOW while removing the possible distraction from enemy floating unit icons possibly covering larger parts of the game map. ALT+I does the same, but it´s all or nothing. ALL floating unit icons for german, US and CW can be replaced with invisible substitute icons. To achieve invisibility, alpha layers were made opaque by filling in all black with Photoshop and saved in 32Bit BMP alpha layer format (the standard). The folders contain all the invisible floating unit icons unpacked by default and a RAR packed file contains these as backup additionally. So if the mod rar file (Z_CMBN No Icons.rar) is unpacked straight into your data/z folder, EVERY floating unit icon in the game is replaced by invisible ones. Now the purpose is to selectively remove those icons you don´t want to be seen in the game from the sub folders. In example if you play as the US player vs. a german opponent, just delete those files from the friendly "USA" folder and leave the (invisible) "german" opponent ones in, if you don´t want to see german floating unit icons. This leaves any original or modded USA unit icons visible, while making german ones invisible. Also delete the files labeled "icon blue..." (used for US and CW) from the "shared" folder and leave the german ones (icon red...) as is. The two files from the "contacts" folder should be deleted, as these are needed for friendly FOW purposes. A packed backup file is always present in every sub folder. The backups contain the invisible floating unit icons. Original floating unit icons, as well as modded ones remain untouched off course. Note: Off course you need to switch floating unit icons ingame to ON (ALT+I). While the floating unit icon graphics are invisible, the actual icon objects are still physically present and if needed you can click/activate them as usual if clicking slightly above a unit in 3D space. Game manual: "Over the center mass of the units they represent" Another interesting use would be to just delete the files containing "fow" (fog of war) in filename, while preserving every other file in a subfolder. The "fow" files are contained in "british", "german" and "usa" folders. What happens in game is that just the "generic silhouette + question mark" icons pop up occasionally, indicating something has changed among the enemy force. Game manual: "Unknown or previously spotted but now out of sight units, as well as pure sound contacts, are shown with a generic silhouette and a question mark." I haven´t tested all SKILL LEVEL modes, so it might be possible that some of the above mentioned procedures need to be adapted or changed in order for the particular SKILL MODES handling of floating unit icons works the way you want. I usually play in IRON. RockinHarry Edit: Also works fine with CMFB. Ignore British folder or delete it.
  4. I know there´s already a couple floating around, but I had to try. Figured ingame ROF for MG42 is set at 1200 (50ms) and MG34 at 850 (70ms) RPM exactly. Single shot replaced with x2 file to avoid that odd mixup and stutter. Anybody likes to try? I deliberately set these somewhat low on bass to give a more distant sound, yet the MG42 rips still into the face. Sound file sources is from CMBB (MG42) and ripped from YT live fire footage (MG34). MG34 has two variations. Unzip/unrar into data/z as usual. https://www.dropbox.com/s/cmvj4p7rl1osuiu/RHZ_MG 34 %26 MG 42 Replacement.rar?dl=0
  5. Her is my latest menu mod for Combat Mission Shock Force 2. This will work for the demo as well. The file Includes multiples UI screens and a full set of module icons. I will be updating with more mods in the future. Cheers, XACTO Download page: Xacto's “Camo” Theme Menu Mod for CMSF2
  6. So I've been playing around with the explosion graphics in CM - I've enjoyed the ones from the various mods, but it always bothered me how huge and cartoony they looked. So I set about making an explosion inspired by Project Reality and Squad: And ended up with this: I'm in no way completely satisfied with what I have, but I'm lazy and was wondering what you guys thought - good direction to head in? You can download it here: Google Drive Extract into the Mods folder in My Documents, or the Z folder in the game directory
  7. While waiting for the final release😉, i decided to create a menu mod for Combat Mission Shock Force 2. This will work for the demo as well. The file Includes multiples UI screens and a full set of module icons. This is my first mod, so please let me know what you think!

  8. All, A link for my Ukrainian/Pro-Russia Separatist skin is included below. Back in early 2016, I did hours of research and created a set of skins for the Ukrainian government and separatist forces based on several preexisting mods (Veins' Russian and Ukrainian Infantry skins, Stagler's Russian skins with gorka and flora camo, Blimey's "Separatist - UKR Digital Slot"). The resulting product is a line-up of government and separatist forces wearing a motley of different camo clothing. I would like to thank Stagler, Veins, and Blimey for your wonderful contribution to our community! But if any of the original content creators object to my usage of their mods, pls message me, I will make revisions accordingly. This is my first post, do let me know if you encounter any problem with the download or the mod itself, I will fix it. Also please share your thoughts on how we can improve this mod together, I want this project to belong to our whole community. Hope you guys enjoy! Description of the mod: 1. Ukrainian government forces: The government soldiers wear mostly the new digital camo pattern, mixed in with some uncovered green/gray helmets and the old bytan-pattern camouflaged helmets and ballistic vests. 2. Pro-Russia separatist forces: I chose the digital slot for the separatists because I feel that, notwithstanding reports of Russian arms surfacing in Donbass, the separatists' equipment is still predominantly the same equipment used by the Ukrainian government forces. What differentiates this mod from Blimey's version is the inclusion of a different mixture of motley camouflage and helmets, rebalanced to reflect (in my opinion) a more authentic look for the government forces and the separatists. Based on my research, olive gorka suits and Russian flora patterns are fairly common among separatist ranks. Occasionally, you will also see some separatists wearing equipment in the new Russian digital pattern. For identification purpose, separatists tie white bands on their arms and legs (Government forces sometimes use yellow tape for identification, but I left this feature out b/c this practice appears to have become less common since the adoption of the new digital pattern). This mod reflects these observations accordingly. Furthermore, I reintroduced helmets for the separatists for several reasons. (1) I can't add bare-headed separatists without also having to remove helmet chain-strap from all Ukrainian models. (2) In intense battles (e.g., Second Battle for Donetsk Airport), video footage showed many frontline separatists wearing helmets. (3) This game reflects the conflict in 2017, it's likely that the separatists have become better equipped.

  9. So I finally finished the DRA skin mod after seeing that a new request was posted today. They are not perfect, but they are a lot better than the originals. The mapping on these skins is not the best and that makes modding them to a good result more challenging. You should be able to download it from here: http://cmmodsiii.greenasjade.net/?wpfb_filepage=dra-skins_2-zip
  10. Well, my trial version of Elements was running out so I pulled the trigger and got the full version on Amazon at 40% off last night. So, looks like I am back in the modding game. Here's what I need help with. I need a list of German Divisions that were in the Western European Theater from October 44 to May 45. Not having to reaserch this will cut at least a month off the time it'll take to get this mod made. So, if you guys want a portrait mod I could use the research help. (Following cut and pasted from my RT mod thread) If you choose to do it, this is how I'd like to see the divisions listed; For Heer: (number) Inf Div (number)Pz Div (number) Pz Gren Div For Luftwaffe: (number) Luft Div (number) Fals Div For Waffen SS: (number) SS Div (number) SS Pz Div (number) SS Pz Gren Div For Volksgrenadier (Number) Volks Gren Div Keep all the branches together and div types together like above (Heer Infantry first, Heer Panzers second etc. with the division in numerical order), and I can easily scan through them without jamming my brain up. Seeing that is how I name the bmps when I mod them it's like muscle memory and makes it easier on me. You guys could keep adding to the list, and when the next guy has new stuff just cut and paste the list into your post with the updated divisions. An example of what I am talking about would look like this; 85th Inf Div 89th Inf Div 148th Inf Div 2nd Pz Div 9th Pz Div 11th Pz Div Etc. When Fizou helped me (with the RT mod) he got a lot of his info from the Panzer Campaign series, if any of you own them they are a good place to start. Mord.
  11. After Zaitzev requested something be done to DRA-heads I have tried my hand at re-texturing them. Texture size increased to 512 x 512.
  12. Hi guys Im returning to this awesome game soon, but unfortunately I lost all my data from a hardware failure. Is it possible for any of you to give me a link to your mod folder. I remember CM FB taking a very long time to mod the last time. Thx in advance!
  13. I have been browsing looking for a uniform mod to update the Kriegsmarine skins and i have found one but i do not see any download links and cannot find it anywhere. If anyone would be able to share the mod with me or a download link id be very appreciative, Thanks
  14. Dear ladies and gentleman, I know that I'm rather late with this, but some real life issues kept me away (finally mary the wife some time ago, for example...). But now it is done! You can download this mod from my site Pimp you Combat Mission
  15. This is a collection of infantry, vehicle crew uniform and gear textures that provides a ‘dusting of snow’ over the base textures from Combat Mission Final Blitzkrieg. It was inspired by @Umlaut 's work with the German Uniforms in Fortress Italy. Ever since using those files, going back to clean uniforms while fighting in a snowstorm has appeared a little off. The base textures are 99% from the Final Blitzkrieg base game with a handful of others from the community for increased variety in the snow set. Special thanks also to Umlaut for giving permission to use his CMFI Uniform snow effects where applicable. All files in this package are already mod tagged, so the snow textures will automatically appear each time the ground conditions of a battle is set as ‘Patchy Snow’ or greater. Should encompass all uniforms covered off in the main game. (Even for those odd snow battles in September ). I live in one of the hottest climates on the planet and have spent a grand total of six days of my entire life in snow. If there is any snow grogs out there with suggested improvements just let me know in this thread.

  16. Hello I`m new to CM and I wonder where do you get all the mods from and if there is a modmanager where you can see all the mods. And if you have any recommendations for mods i should use. Thanks, Erik
  17. Ive been making some maps for Stalingrad, set in winter 42-43, ive built loads of new builds which can be entered and used functionally, before i design build from the modular set but they couldnt be entered, ive designed the builds to use a door and upper set of windows. The maps arent huge but have loads of destoyed building in them. Mod tags work great Im using the brill Umlats Factory Mod, and Aris Vehicles plus all the new winter mods. I wanted to see if I could really get a flavour of Stalingrads ruins shells this meant taking out all floors and ceilings and roofs. Using loads of textures from the internet ive been building blocks like this. Which look great and are awesome to defend from. Bit of fun for flavour, as we cant make staues ( not that i know of) ive tryed to work one into a build, not sure but is a work in progress. More flavour with the Soviet flag Destroyed apartments Destroyed apartments heavily textured to enhance the ruined feel. A good one to show the size of the builds. A big work in progress but let me know what you think when i'm done i'm gonna put all the files in a drop box )as there are loads) mod tag them as stalingrad then upload he scenarios. Ive only made 2 maps so far so a way to go. I aim to make at least 10 maps. Cheers let me know what you think. Nige
  18. I was reading that the Pat and TaL building mods are not the right style for Market Garden scenarios. Do any of them look accurate for the area? If not, I assume I should disable all the Pat and TaL building mods if I want my MG games to look more accurate? I'm using: Pat TaL Modular buildings 1 - 4 Pat_TaL_independent_building_1 - 2 Pat TaL independent commercial buildings Tanks a Lot's CMBN Barns Tanks a Lot's CMBN buildings Tanks a Lot's CMBN Church 2 Thanks.
  19. Hey guys. In Granny, sorry, mistress Wetherwax's words: I aten't dead! And I've made a new mod too! What I've always missed in CM's cities are roads are kerbs. Also, I've been wanting to do typical Dutch style city roads and pavement for the Market Garden module for a while now. The result looks quite good, but there are some issues users should be aware of: -This mod will not look optimal on existing maps as, due to the addition of kerbs, proper use of the appropriate segment, its placement and orientation is vital. This is not always the case on existing maps. - The kerb and pavement effect also works best when used together exclusively. This, also, is not the case on most existing maps. So, when creating new maps using this mod, avoid mixing in different types of paved ground, as the end result will not look good. Also, when used together, make sure you put a pavement tile underneath each road segment as well. Remember, the Dutch like things neat and tidy! ;-) - Many road configurations (for which the game's road system often just isn't designed) were always easy enough to fake with the stock roads, without it being too obvious. Once again, due to the kerbs, not so much with this mod! The mod is intended for CM:BN's Market Garden module, but can basically be used in any CMx2 game. For now, here's a screenshot. I will upload it to CMMODS in a couple of days!
  20. can anyone post a dropbox (or any) link here so we can download it (someone who already has it) thanks mod or mods is/are : veins russians , veins ukranians for CMBS
  21. Since most the incomplete info is scattered across the board and nothing at all to be found in the CMBN game manual, I´d like to post the basics here, mainly for people who play and work with CMBN only. 1. The mod tag name must be lower case only. I.e "ground dirt red [yourtag].bmp" 2. The mod tag name must be ONE single word. I.e "yourtag", not "your tag". Otherwise the game looks for two (or more) different name tags (your, tag), which most likely do not exist then. 3. There needs to be a space before the brackets [....] with the tag name. 4 The text file to be imported in the editor just needs to include the single word, lower case tag name and any additionally to be used tag, seperated by a space, comma, or line feed. For the above example, the to be imported txt file just includes yourtag. If the tagged files are named [yourtag] and [othertag), the text file needs then to contain yourtag, othertag, or yourtag othertag, or yourtag (line feed) othertag 5. The tagged mod file goes anywhere into the data/z folder. 6. Any game file can be mod tagged, ie. *.wav, *.bmp (including UI elements), *.frag, *.mdr and maybe more. 7. If the txt file is loaded/imported into the editor, the tagged mods become active, once you load the 3D editor part (deploy units, 3D preview) and exit again. Can´t hurt to save the mission file with the newly added tag, exit editor and reload. That´s what works for me after some trial and error and bits of info found here and there. I do neither have CMRT, CMFI or CMBS and it seems these games have info in the manuals not contained in the CMBN one, thus not available to me. Additional comments, hints or error corrections welcome.
  22. can anyone PM me or give me link to vein's CMBS ukranians/russians (and maybe americans if they exist) thanks this is the mod http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b506/Vein71/Russkies_zps01415f3a.jpg (hes been inactive for 4 months)
  23. Hi Guys I've been building scenarios and maps for about a couple of years now, I thought it's about time to show you guys what ive been doing. Below are some screen shots of a Normandy town (loosely based on Caumont) its not meant to be a battle map but to see what looks good and ive made all the building skins etc, although there are bits from the brilliant Tanks alot buildings and Kiemmes Modular builds. All the skins are textures from real Normandy buildings, the windows also, but they dont neccasarily come from the same building, when building a map I try to put my mind to a Street planner and try not to do things that wouldnt happen in real life, then i put my mind into the owner of the buildings for gardens etc, basically most towns/cities in western europe have Streets with houses, places of work ie factories, shops, or farms and religious buildings. But i also add in little touches like market places etc. Anyway see what you think and if you have any questions feel free to ask. Cheers Nige
  24. I figured I'd get back into some Combat Mission, but I'm not feeling up to continuing The Road to Montebourg yet. I got ahold of the Euroscape mod and fired up Task Force Thunder for a bit of fun. Aside from needing to swap out some weapon sounds (damn "brass tinkling" sound effect gives me a headache) I had a lot of fun. Check it out.
