Fields of War: Normandy 1.00 and beyond WIP thread (formerly The 31st Normandy mod)

Recommended Posts

Lot of the things requested here are there already...although some of them not yet in the alpha.

Germans have the 8cm GrW34 mortar and US has the 60mm M1 mortar. Both are transportable by a group of men.

We also have these already ... PIAT, S-mine 35, US 155mm 'Long Tom', US 105mm howitzer. There are naval mines too...in two sorts.

AA-artillery: Allied AAA is not on the top of the list (but it is not forgotten) because Luftwaffe wasn't a big issue in Normandy. Allies have some AA anyway, like quad 50 cal, single 50 cal and 30 cal on few vehicles. Germans have 88mm and quad 20mm.

I know you guys do not have a Utah map,

Well your not entirely correct.

the map is Normandy in it's whole.

It contains Utah as well as Omaha,Sword,Gold and Juno

Infantry List.

Snippy

USA:

101st Airborne & 82nd Airborne

1st ID, 29th ID, 4th ID & 90th ID

2nd Rangers & 5th Rangers

British:

"Red Devils" 6th Airborne

50th ID & 3rd ID (camo netted helmets)

Canadians

3rd ID (camo netted helmets)

11th Armored Division

Polish:

3rd Polish Infantry Brigade

1st Armored Division

Banging a quick list together here.

But I'll see what i can do in the form of re-texturing the British for the other forces.

The Canadians and Polish were wearing British uniform or an earlier spec of it from what i understand so it should be easy enough to add them.

And as Aqu said we already have many of the things you have mentioned,

As well as many more ;)

It won't take much to turn the models I made into whatever US infantry we need. I was thinking about creating something a bit more special, if someone can tell me about some special units, its always the same ones in movies or games, there must be some that also earned the attention..

My Aidstation is comming along nicely so perhaps some medical units?

SAS specials units from British, " The Special Air Service (SAS) is the principal special forces of the United Kingdom and one of the most elite corps in the world. This unit was founded in 1941 in North Africa to carry out raids on the Axis lines and is now a model for many other special forces in the world. The SAS is the smallest and secret regiment in the UK but it is simultaneously one of the most popular. The counterpart of the SAS in the Royal Navy is the Special Boat Service (SBS), formerly called the Special Boat Squadron." cit. wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Air_Service

they were used in North-West Europe Campaign of 1944–1945 too

Is there a possibility of including a couple more British Divisions such as 15th Scottish Division and 11th and 79th Armoured Divisions? These divisions took part in most of the larger 21st Army group operations and played quite a very prominent role in Normandy.

i think only really field medic are useful in all honest.

But some pathfinder units with the M-227 Signal Lamp and PPN-2 Eureka Beacon would be cool.

marking drop zones for the invasion in missions or just making a marker on the map for Multi-player.

I'm not really sure on Special units.

But i think just making each unit look individual would be a accomplishment.

I think British/polish/Canadian troops would be a good project as well.

As for divisions we can include many division if you feel the need for them.

it would be just a few texture tweaks on the armored sides.

changing the patches on the Crew and the markings on the tank.

The SAS/Commando's would be cool.

For the pre-invasion sabotage role's

SAS would be fun.. though I wasn't thinking in the lines of special forces just some units that played some special roles but I don't really know if there would be much difference in the game the uniforms must have been pretty much the same...

Air force, navy personnel, french resistance, ww2 time civilians, Rommel, Montgomory, Eisenhower, ...?

I made a Goliath and the control box models, but it hasn't been fully completed. There were some problems make it easily controllable by a player.

Don't forget the dancers for the Moulin rouge ;)

Canadian and Polish can be easily worked i think.

Gliders could load vehicles last time should be no different.

It will only be the MB-2 jeep & Kubel Wagen i would imagine.

Maybe the Tetrarch tank in the Hamilcar if we include them.

Basically we'll include as much as we can but if we include everything we wanted, the mod would be for Arma 4 :D

- Fountains

- Benches

- Civil veichles(bikes too)

- Light poles

- Statues

- Units deaths bodyes

excuse my ignorance,is there a way to create some brutal effects like Brothers in Arms HH? for example a granada explodes next to a soldier ... The body is split in half, or miss a leg or an arm ...or a headshot literally splits the skull..make some brutality will incrase the realism of the mod...something like this

Nice Canis.

Looks nice. Maybe add some blood splatters on the stretcher?

EDIT: Previous question? The exaggarated ragdoll effects? I don't see it worth using time on adding more blood and blown off limbs right now.

Perhaps a large map of Normandy (I mean large, not the standard map on an easel.) and other objects that could fit a briefing room type situation.

@Babylon - Rip answered you, and I'm pretty sure he said no.
