Hello there!

 

Forgotten Fronts: Holland 40-45 is a ww2 modification for Arma 3 mainly focussed on re-creating the Netherlands over the course of the second world war. The inital project is to include a variety of maps, objects, units, weapons and vehicles used by the Dutch during ww2. As of now it's not much. But we do have alot of interesting stuff planned in due time :f:. We aim to eventually make our assets as detailed as possible with as many variation as possible and to stay away from demanding requirements as much as possible. 

 

Here's an overview of what you can expect:

We eventually hope to tackle all of the above in a well functioning Arma mod for all to enjoy! Any help, tips and comments are very much welcome :smileee: we're a relatively new bunch of chaps when it comes to Arma modding.. slowly piecing togheter this immense project.

Hello again!

 

Thanks for all the likes and comments so far! It really means alot to see so much support for this project. Below some pictures of the NBS. The NBS were ex- resistance fighters whom were turned into an interior fighting force when parts of the country got liberated in 1944. Equipped by the allies the NBS was tasked with helping out the allied forces in any way possible and carry out arrests in the name of the fatherland. These awesome shots were made by Zhivets and feature a sten gun from Faces Of War (We will eventually have our own)

Very psyched up for this one, guys! Question: for the British Sector of Market Garden map, are you doing Oosterbeek, Driel or are you going to try and go so far as to make the western side of Arnhem up to the John Frost bridge?

The British Sector map will cover roughly this area.

Can't say that I expected Wolfheze or Ginkel Heath, but I am pleasantly surprised! Thank you for your reply!

Hi lsk323941, 

 

The retexture pack is just something i made for my unit. Wich shares the same name as this. I also use that to test some things from time to time. But this is not the forum for that particular project. This is for the Forgotten Fronts: Holland mod wich is still being worked on.

That being said. Let me update you all a bit on the project. It has been a while. 

 

Work continues with the great input of all developers and external helpers. the project is really shaping up to much, much more than i couldve ever hoped and learning along the way i myself, and some of our modelers often re-do items for the sake of quality. Wich means it takes some time for us to have something we are happy with to show you guys. Most of our updates have been on discord. However allow me to show you guys some more stuff. 

 

The German Faction

We've decided to go with the 3 most active factions in holland during the maydays of 1940: Wehrmacht, SS-VT and Fallschirmjagers are going to be a part of Forgotten Fronts. As of now SS-VT and WH are already being tested and worked on and Rikugun has been working on a fallschirmjager with some amazing variants wich will see action with the mod.

Some early and late war configurations for Wehrmacht and an SS-VT smock in the making (Left). The late war models will be used as enemy for the resistance and allied factions.

The Dutch Faction

The dutch faction has had some upgrades since the last time i showed them. More work will be done on variation and ranks for the dutch. But i havent found the time to do so yet. They are still the main focus of this mod.

Other Stuff/ Etc. 

 

For other stuff we have been working on some buildings togheter with lennard from faces of war. We have also taken on some Spanish Civil War assets from our spanish brothers from GCE. Wich will be worked on alongside the content for Forgotten Fronts: Holland.

Other than that plans and guidelines have been set for a release, and plans are being made for after said release. We really just want this to be as polished and purrrfect when we release it. We plan to add more early war factions from the lowlands as we progress in the project. 

 

P.S. for the recent spike in developement i really want to thank Simcardo, Petrlach and Rikugun for alot of help on assets and sharing their work, without them this simply wouldnt have been possible.

I'm really keen on seeing your new Maps! If they are suited (big enough)  I have a cool idea for a mission.

Hi Part,

 

The terrain I'm working on will be big enough to cover ALL Commonwealth movement during the landings and the action in Oosterbeek and Wolfheze. The map features all Landing and Drop Zones. It even supplies the Supply Zone Y which was ambushed by German forces just northwest of Arnhem. Because it is hard to make a good looking city with the limited amount of assets I have at my disposal I could not bring myself to doing it. The map is made with Dutch and Allied maps from the time and I try to recreate is as good as I can, with a very small amount of freedom to work around missing assets and to prevent a too big of a workload. 

 

If I don't forget I shall post some more images of the terrain in the near future to keep you guys updated to that aswell.
