CMRT Winter Scenario Writing Head Start

Recommended Posts

Just my humble opinion:

The CMRT Winter Mod is coming over the horizon towards you all. It is fairly massive and cumbersome to get uploaded. Uploading is in progress. I have some helpers. <Thanks guys!>

Everything we have should be uploaded to cmmods by Christmas. 

But in all seriousness, this is actually a great opportunity for scenario authors to start writing CMRT winter scenarios using the mod. Start now.

It represents a head start and they should confidently know that even if with the drawbacks of the mod..well, eventually the real deal BFC official module will show in a year or 2.

I think their scenario work done prior to module release will be easily adaptable to the module. Just clear the modtag, perhaps revise the map here and there, adjust the weather, the date.

Revise purchases but assign the same AI group number to match the AI plan.

All I can do is put the guitar, amp and "how to play the guitar DVD set" under the tree for Christmas. Becoming Jimi or Eric or Jimmy or Stevie is your job. :D

If the mod is a flop and I don't think it will be but it is self correcting and all this will drift slowly to the dark older pages of the CMRT forum and subforum.

But meanwhile, my head is dizzy thinking of some cool Ost Front winter vignettes.

For all of you who are not Bulge fans and have no intention of buying CMFB, this Winter Mod is really for you to enjoy. Once CMFB comes out we will borrow some new uniforms and such to

add to the CMRT Winter Mod and it should be even more flexible for portraying late war Hungary and such.

Get the juices flowing! I was even going to hold another scenario contest and give away some prizes. Nobody even entered the last one!

Thank you...  Maybe years down the road I will pick it up (CMFB), when it may be on sale and such.  That time period just does not do it for me.  Can't wait for earlier war stuff (North Africa, Barbarossa /Kursk, France 40...).

If you have CMRT there will be a battle in and around Winter Storm '42-43 and another Cherkassy '44 right from the start. I know it's not '41 but those epic winter battles are looking really nice with koh's MOD. IMHO.

Kevin

Awesome.  Anything Ostfront from 42-43 will be fantastic.

On another note, when the Kursk module eventually comes out, with the older vehicles that will be included (PzIII's for example), will it be possible for someone to make earlier (1941) eastern front scenarios /ops?

To create older Ost Front scenarios NOW in the immediate future VERSUS waiting what could be 5 to 7 to 10 YEARS.

...you have to have some flexibility and acceptance and tolerance of certain adaptations and workarounds. 

Also we would probably NOT go after the larger full unit on the map scenarios. Maybe we could but probably much easier not to. Stick with vignettes.

Your idea about vignettes was the correct approach. That's what I have been working on. Once the mod catches on, the sky is the limit for the winter months - with a little imagination and creativity. Even an all infantry winter '41 is possible if you keep it fairly basic. I am not a small arms guy so maybe there would be technical inconsistencies.

Hi @kevinkin so I tried out the scenario Happy New Year.

Some screen shots attached to see the Winter Mod.

Ok, didn't last long....one PZ IV is immobilized at the start and I managed to bog down and immobilize my other one very quickly...no mas good as the HORDES of T-34s come sweeping over the river.

Overall, I could see the butt whipping coming a mile off, so am going to restart...

This is going to be a challenge...not a lot of AT weapons to slow down those tanks..and the darkness does not help a lot...will try a different set of ambush tactics...see if my Germans can use their Panzerfausts to slow them down...but DANG, that's a lot of tanks to stop with a couple of platoons and 2 banged up tanks....Screen_Shot_2015-12-20_at_1.02.55_PM.thuScreen_Shot_2015-12-20_at_1.03.14_PM.thuScreen_Shot_2015-12-20_at_1.03.25_PM.thuScreen_Shot_2015-12-20_at_1.03.54_PM.thu

Thanks for playing and I can subtract a Red Army Tank of two if need be. I think you got real unlucky with the bog since I only had 2 or 3 in a 12 or so tests. It can happen for sure. I agree with the ambush tactic ... one well placed Panzer ... How was the look and feel? Does the scenario due the Mod justice?

Kevin

Update for scenario writers!

What are the holidays without Falling Snow!

You can download CMRT Winter Mod Snow shaders from updated CMRT Winter Mod Dropbox 3 link  (expires Januray 1st 2016.) https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6wdug2pzj4842ll/AADTsX5G20iHBTGGU8yybJs1a?dl=0

 

There is no falling snow in CMRT.

Those shaders only change the look of the rain particles and rain weather conditions. They do not simulate physical behaviour of snow particles. “Background rain.wav” is a mix of CMRT default “background fog.wav” and “background wind.wav” to simulate sound of snowy conditions. It replaces CMRT default “background rain.wav”.

For “real snow” You will have to wait till official Winter Mod Pack.
