Not quite sure about the "Polizeiwagen". It certainly looks the standard design was more like the Wartburg below. But if you search the Internet for "Polizeiwagen DDR", you find surprisingly many which look like the @chuckdyke Trabbi.

This one looks more "Lada" than "Wartburg". I think it's Lada.

How about this for a flavor object? :)

The US Army used to give its troops tours of the Border wall. For VII Corps the tours were conducted by a special detachment of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment. Part of the tour included passing through the town of Hölle (Hell) Germany. Here's  a link to a famous resident. I was there once in the winter so Hell was frozen over.

Do you mean this thread or are you referring to another thread where ice cream trucks were prevalent?

But more seriously, I think almost all civilian cars would be gone by the time the Soviets got close. Fleeing civilians blocking the roads was a serious concern of the NATO planners.

Most civilian cars are probably gone, yes. But I guess, a reasonable amount of them would have been abandonded as well. What if you ran out of fuel, or something broke down or was broken down, when the russians were coming? What if you were too slow to flee, or wanted to pick a loved one up when it happened?

@ Dr.Fusselpulli

The good news is that flavour (or flavour) objects are easy to create with Photoshop or similar. I hope BF CMCW will have similar numbers of slots and independent  buildings like BS, rather than SF2 which has fewer spare slots and no indie buildings which reduces options.  There's a guide to creating flavour objects somewhere around too.

HI @Dr.Fusselpulli (and anyone else) here is the link to Umlaut's guide to making new flavour objects.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/0g35it41bg7sskz/Adding+Extra+Flavor+Objects.doc/file

It is pretty easy.  Two things to note:

1. there are 9 slots to each flavor object class. So you can use any of the other slots - e.g ATM is a fave because you can use up all the other slots e.g. ATM2 could be a wrecked truck, it doesn't matter.

2.  The mdr naming convention might seem strange- you have to adhere to it *exactly* or things won't work.  I keep paper notes of all the bits and pieces I am making so I don't get it messed up.

Though this was for Black Sea it will work for any CM game, they all function in exactly the same way. Stick your new flavour objects in their own folder in the Z folder and you will be good to go.
