Streety Posted July 3, 2012 Share Posted July 3, 2012 I've just uploaded a Beta version of this new mod set at GaJ's CMMODS website http://cmmods.greenasjade.net/. This conversion contains over 9000 bitmaps split across 7 large zips, and much thanks to GaJ for agreeing to host it for free - please donate!). Although fairly complete I'm still calling this is a "beta". Please only give feedback on any errors or pinking, permissions or credits I've missed out, or offers to help add to this conversion (please no feedback about historical accuracy or other preferences or wants...) thanks. Either ask on this thread, or PM me or use the email address in the zips' readme file (especially email me if you are reading this some time from when it was written, or if I don't answer via the forum within a week). What is it? This is a massive collection of bitmaps that changes CMAK into a Sealion & ETO game. The "All Combined" theatre and (from the winter of 1943/44 onwards, the "Italy" theatre also) becomes England or France. There's a lot of new (remodded CMAK and CMBB) scenery, buildings (modded or tweaked Sealion/ETO English and Normandy stuff), as well as recoloured armour, and renumbered and tweaked uniforms. The "North Africa" theatre also becomes an Operation TORCH or Mediterranean or winter-Africa (i.e. greener, cold-weather uniforms etc), but in this beta the Med/winter-Africa conversion is imcomplete. Why a "Total Conversion"? Most of these bitmaps are desatuarated (i.e. less colour, and often darkened/lightened to match together) and so probably won't match most other mods very well, and they are converted to 8-bit colour where possible. Also, although in the past there were several good efforts on Sealion (such as CMWest), it was never 100% complete and looks-wise the other Sealion mods were a bit of a mish-mash of ideas and theatres/periods. Anything not included? I'd liked to have included Gurra's Westfront Interface mod but I haven't yet heard from him. But I recommend you use it with my conversion. Why also add another version of ETO? Because my conversion is desaturated, you couldn't just use the early part for Sealion and yet also keep Inglett's current ETO in the same BMP folder without some disparity. And my ETO is not identical to Inglett's, though it reuses a tweaked form of many of Inglett's (and some others') ETO mods. And I've just gone for looks, and matching tri-camo where possible, tweaking for visual consistency, over any concerns of historical precision. My version also includes new snow-versions for some models not previously provided for. Credits: Me (took 2 years), but I also re-used ideas, and recoloured or tweaked many other modders' works as well. And so they should share all credits: Major credits (in no particular order): MikeyD, Andrew Fox, David Inglett, Mark Ezra, Wicky, Tanks-a-Lot and Juju. Other important credits (in no particular order): HeinzBaby, Gurra, Alexoscar, Gordon Molek, Aristoteles, Marco Bergman, RockinHarry, Caffino, badjuju_4, Gautrek,Junk2Drive, Pat, Vossie, Ypenburg, Navy, Sequoia, Limey, Tracer, Samurai_man, Lucky_Strike, Daffy, UncleTgt, and probably others too (please let me know if I've missed you out! and I apologise and will add you in).
