Next in line: a flavor objects add-on. Three new civilian vehicles can be added to the game, ported directly from combat mission shock force and adapted for the local scenario.

I will add a few weathering effects and release these three as a package:

For reasons out of my comprehension the windshields/Windows don't work. Besides that these models are not optimized for CMBS (some problems concerning shadows) and they are not "solid", so they won't give cover, even though the infantry appears to be lining near them realistically.

Thanks Macisle.

 

I hope these will be useful, I already started populating maps with some vehicles, and at least now the parking lots feel a bit better.

 

Officially, it's not possible to make flavor objects. Unofficially yes, it is. First of all you need to know your ways with a 3d editor program, then, I would point you to this thread: http://community.battlefront.com/topic/118928-combat-mission-modding-tools/

Kieme CMBS additional flavor objects  2 (military vehicles)

 

This mod adds 2 new flavor objects to the game, in form of two military vehicles (a BMP-1 and a T-54b, stripped of most external accessories), textured as long-time abandoned hardware. The models and textures were ported from combat mission shock force game with some adjustments and heavy weathering.

These flavor objects are not present in any game map created since now, but they will be available for map makers from now on if they decide to use them.

You will find these in game's editor, under "vehicle" in the flavor objects 3 Group.

 

Note: these flavor objects do not provide cover, don't block shots or vehicles movement and are sometimes glitchy with their shadows.

Thank you.

If I understand this correctly, it would be possible to include for example blown off turrets or much bigger objects as flavor objects, too?

Could Kohlenklau place flavor object ships on the "isles" at the Malta coast?

It's really an unknown land that one. CM games have never been moddable in terms of 3d objects (they were not inteded for that kind of modding and therefore they don't support that), and the games are not yet 3d-modded today.

The one person working on this is sbobovyc, of the pointed thread, and he knows how to use computer software very well.

When it comes to 3d objects who knows if there are dimension constraints, polygon bugs or whatever. Anything could be. One thing is for sure, if you want to add the statue of liberty you might even get it right, but don't expect it to walk (i.e. programming and interaction with the game is really out of any mod scope).

 

My posted mods are just a ports from another CM game, which all took was some renaming of files. Theoretically, all CM2x games are compatible (from CMSF to CMRT), so you can inter-change items, there are differences between the 3d engines, but the basic rendering system is the same. There might be glitches and little problems though.

WYSIWYG breaks down severely with larger flavor objects, which is why BF has generally imposed an upper limit on their size and solidity.  Swapping them out with radically different objects may be aesthetically pleasing, but it could introduce gameplay problems, especially for players who do not understand the limits of flavor objects.

Next mods will be dedicated to Russian BMP-2 and similar vehicles. I have the intention to make green only version of these.

 

I am experimenting with the BMP-2M by adding the "M rated" equipment in a different color to differentiate it and emphasize the retro-fitting (or modernization) concept, what's your opinion on this?

Overall it looks great but would the additional components really be a different colour.  If they would be then sure but my gut says why would the look any different the whole thing could easily have a fresh coat of paint after the upgrade was done.  Unless some one chimes in and says - yeah all the upgraded stuff comes looking like that then I would not use two different colours.
