  1. So in laymans terms, how would I go about getting whitewashed hulls or vehicle textures? And then how would one go about copying them into the proper folder with proper variation? Sorry, but I'm quite inexperienced on the mod side of things
  2. Very glad to see this module released. Sadly, next week is finals week for me, so the temptation to buy the module and play instead of studying is gonna eat me up all week๐Ÿ˜‚.
  3. I thought Steve said the BFC website would release CW on their website this month. The Slitherine release was pushed back to June specifically because of multiplayer. I think some input from BFC on this would help clear it up though.
  4. I thought Steve said in an earlier post on this threat that CMCW is releasing on the BFC website this month and on Slitherine once the multiplayer stuff is done. If this isn't the case and CMCW has been delayed till June, I think it is only fair that the devs announce it so we don't sit here sweating like a Practitioner of the Oldest Profession in church (gotta keep it classy). No disrespect to the devs, of course.
  5. I will agree with you on several of those points, the ahisotricity of the opening engagement in TT was what first made me think it sounded fishy. The all-seeing Eye of Sauron drivers plate always makes me chuckle when i reread the novel as well. And I've always doubted there were regiments of IS-2s in winter of 43 in Ukraine. But since I'm well versed in the history and myths of the Eastern Front, I was able to note these and still enjoy the book as an entertaining read and a good story, if nothing else. (I didn't realize the Tiger crew positions were incorrect. What positions were out of place, if you don't mind me asking? It's been a while since I read TT and can't remember those sorts of specific details). I personally found The Last Panther to be a good narrative that captured the desperation of the Halbe breakout....minus the protagonist running into literally every German tank of the war๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. I respectfully disagree with you here, I also think the two books are works of fiction but I personally enjoyed both the stories and think they'd make for interesting campaigns in a CM style game Very much enjoyed Carius's book, still haven't gotten around to reading Panzer Ace (though it is on my 2021 reading list for sure!)
  7. Also, I never read TWW: August 1985. I have "The Untold Story". What is the difference if any between the two?
  8. I bought it on Amazon used in about 2016 ish for a couple bucks, lost it for a while, and found it recently cleaning out my room. Needless to say, Christmas came early that day
  9. Let me lead off by first stating that, if you haven't read Tiger Tracks or the Last Panther, I suggest you do. They are great novels. Are they actually memoirs of a panzer crewman named Wolfgang Faust? I doubt it. They read too much like historical fiction for me. However, the narrative content contained in the two books would, IMHO, make great content for a narrative campaign. Both books tell a very good and emotional story about the horrors of mechanized warfare on the Eastern Front. A Tiger Tracks campaign is probably doable now with the CMRT Winter Mod, not so sure if a Last Panther campaign would require assets from FR to complete. Anyone have any thoughts about this?
  10. Hoping for a NATO and NSWP forces module after the base game releases. Would flesh out the time period and the forces involved in a hypothetical 80s conflict very nicely. Another great module would perhaps be a late 80s early 90s module (situated at the twilight of the Cold War, if the USSR didn't collapse or instead decided to throw the dice in a final attack on Western Europe, as some allege they wanted to do).
  11. I've still got Hackett's book and Red Army on my shelf. Personally, Ralph Peters' writing style is very underrated IMHO (highly recommend his ACW novels as well). I think a possible Soviet campaign from the perspective of Captain Bezarin would be interesting (would be difficult to simulate the crowded autobahn engagement though). As I have no modding experience in CM (having only recently discovered this franchise and still too scared to play the multiplayer) I intend for this thread to be purely speculative until at least release. After that, I intend to try my hand at campaign modding so as to bring these wonderful novels to life
  12. There are a few battles with a Polish T-55 legion and East Germans too. So maybe something like this would have to wait until a NSWP forces module is released
  13. Correct me if I'm wrong, are you speaking about Red Army by Ralph Peters?
  14. So it's gonna release during my finals week. RIP ๐Ÿ˜ž
