Balkan war mod w.i.p

Recommended Posts

I had some funny idea, to include songs like Ko to Kaze, Ko to Laze and Ustaski Becarac (Mene moja naucila mati) and other songs to have a more authentic feel into the actual mod... I am willing to release a script with all the songs and a description.ext for you to put in your missions, if someone sends me a list of songs for each side (5 minimum for each faction, so 15 minimum in general). Pozdrav na deeeeesno! :D

Hey all, (I'm new), I think I can shed some light on the arty issue as I too have it. For me, I have the .pbo's in my addon folder. I don't know what other people with the problem have done but I didn't want to have deal with the mod folder as I'm running CO on Steam (hassle). I think maybe making the arty work for when the .pbo is in the addon folder might help? Also someone mentioned effects on other non BWM items (standard D30 and M119 which seem to have disappeared alltogether even in editor lists etc.), this happens for me. Otherwise the detail and amount of new vehicles/weapons in this mod is awesome, keep up the good work!

are there any posibilitys of us getting missions or maybe even a campaign?

i was thinking like a Sarajevo style mission, where you start as a bosnian soldier with an m 80 and then rescues other groups of soldiers and then take heavy weaponry form the serbs

It says that I got wrong signature of abih.pbo but I clearly downloaded this to server and then from the server to my PC. Files are identical. Server keys are copied to server/keys folder. Cant figure out whats wrong...

Loads of errors too in log, shouldn't be like that. No disrespect just trying to help out so we can all give it a go :lecture:

Edit: Working on my local PC in editor but with few weird issues. Sometimes had to click twice on preview to get it loading. Might be some script messing up things.

Also tried placing Arty pieces but they just dont show up at all? D30 Nora VRS and VRB VRS.

Couldn't make bots not occupy vehicles whatever I set as parameter.

Map icons are not good at all use default ones instead.

General typos in names which can be lived with ALL CAPS is somewhat annoying, and it might be very hard to someone that doesnt speak "our" language to pickup the pieces. Some vehicles are way too much agile and seem to miss weight.

In general Id call it alpha needs more work. Ill keep testing and update with details.

Pozdrav iz NS :slayer3:

You are doing a great job SuperRat I really looking forward to the config fixes and the new units. I've always wanted the BOV family in a mod such as this, you making it happen, and that I am truly grateful for. The thing I would love to see in the future is the implementation of some air to ground and air to air fighter/fighter bombers. There are plenty of skill full airplane modders out there. Would been awesome if someone could make the J-21 Jastreb,Soko G-4 Super Galeb, Soko J-22 Orao coming to life used by SFR Yugoslav airforce and by some other factions during this time period. Then there is the MiG-21s and the MiG-29s, that also saw some action. The crafts themselves would be an excellent addition to a already excellent mod, and make great use for all those sexy anti-aircraft systems already found in the mod.

tonci plan for HVO is t55 gvozdinkaSPH mtbl some other weapons i know they had that i wont give them M84 tank even bosnian side i think had only 3 of these and 4 t72 i think most weapons gonna be in VRS (serbian) faction they had the most

Pathetic_Berserker that's the plan run down equip.:D

Mod is great but you are wrong in one thing Croatia have M84 from 1991 and other tanks including german Leopard tank but Bosnia army doesnt have tanks until 1993 speciali M84 and can you make some addon to give Croatia more tanks im sure that you see Operatio Storm :)) sorry i have bad english

mrki: this is HVO faction not HV from rep. croatia which had all of the tanks mostly tanks that were in bosnia supporting HVO belonged to HV army which was crossing border of course as i have more time ill give it a go for HV faction.

gibnica : ill look at the issues down the road as next update comes which will take bit time hopefully ill have will to do new units for all sides i know you want something like volunteers and JNA

alpha: i dont know how steam version works but it must be Operation Arrowhead version.. copy whole folder balkan war mod to your folder were game was installed start game go to expand and enble this mod restart game that should be it

opffever: planes take time this is huge mod i am one man patince.....

Yeah planes do take a really long time because a huge thing about aircraft is the flight model, which I can't really wrap my head around.

If you don't take your time with the flight model, nobody will want to use the aircraft because it'll fly like shit.

Are you going to make actual Yugoslavian forces? Are you considering translating the mod into english?

If you are gonna make JNA make sure it is JNA from 80's. They were better than the JNA from 90's. With their horrible M89 sljem's.

Exactly! JNA was great in the 80's, It was the 4th Strongest Largest Military in the whole world. Any Yugoslavs, Bosnians, Serbs, Croats, Add me! Im new to the community and am very much in love with this mod, Hvala SuperRat.

i advise you all to google battle of solibor. there is a guy who is at this moment working at a mission for balkan war mod. in the mission you will play as a member of the bosnian army and together with HVO forces, you must liberate serb held villages in eastern bosnia. the mission setting is from the croatian operation storm
