Finnish Minefield Markers

Recommended Posts

I've updated my Finnish Minefield Markers mod at CMMODS. The new version (version 1.1 as opposed to version 1.0) looks like this:


The sign on the left is the anti-personnel mine marker and reads "Danger ! Mines". The one on the right simply says "Mines" and marks daisy chains and anti-tank mines.

This mod should only be used in Finland, so be sure to back up your originals or you'll have these signs cropping up in the Ukraine.

Thanks to Sergei for help with the idiomatic Finnish. And belated thanks to Eichenbaum for his wood samples -- I didn't use them because I was in a hurry and constructing the individual planks, building the sign, and then weathering it is a bit of a chore. Next year if I have time I'll try to do a second version out of birchwood.

I doubt that I'll do much more modding this year. However, at some point next year I intend to continue the series. I have a prototype of the Italian mine marker sitting on my hard drive ("Attenti alle Mine !" and "Mine !"). But I'll need information, semiotic, and linguistic help for the Poles, Hungarians, and Romanians.
