Halftrack @ "Scorched Earth" - Realism Mod for CoH2

Modding for CoH2 is much too limited, so I dont think this will be ever possible.

Just try another mirror, if you have download issues.

Halftrack @ Battle of the Bulge

You know that you guys get everything for free, years of work and just because of people like us, the modders.
Indeed we share a lot, but we also are a community which pays respect to the work of the other modders.

The modding community has an unwritten rule,( and I think a lot of societies, too ):
Don't take whats not yours without permission.

Thats what happened, no matter if this mod has not been updated for years or if I got credited for the skins.( which is far from fully credited btw )
Besides, as I said before, I am not asking to remove anything really important.

There is a thing thats called RL which kept me away for several months. And I am not asking to remove everything, thats not true. I would have said yes to use quite a lot of content but definetely not to a complete assimilation of this Mod.

We do talk indeed, and there wont be ANY changes to the gameplay, I can assure you. Just a few maps and skins less.
I was always willing to share a lot of stuff, but not everything.

Halftrack @ Battle of the Bulge

Sure. If anything had been sorted out before, it would have been fine.
But instead EaW almost copy/pasted most of BotB
without permission and released it without consulting me.
I am not the one to blame here.

I tried it now and then on different systems and it always worked. Sorry, there is not much I can do about that, if it works fine in every test I did.

Halftrack @ Battle of the Bulge

What do you have in mind what could be completed?

Well , I had a patch with some bugfixes in the making , but no free time to wotk on it for ages. But I consider it as "almost finished" anyway.
I would love to have a SP campaign though... but have no SCAR coders.

Some virus scanners might block the installer, if settings are too strict.

Of course, the world would be much better if everyone just takes what he wants from others without asking properly.

Halftrack @ "Scorched Earth" - Realism Mod for CoH2

Yes. No time for modding, and no proper possibilities for CoH2.

Hey guys, glad that some of you still play BotB. Thumbs up!
Unfortunately I am very busy in Rl, especially work,
so I have no time to care for this mod at the moment,
and honestly I cannot promise that I can do it later.
I hope to at least be able to release a patch which is
waiting to be finished for more than a year now.

Halftrack @ Jagpanzer IV/L70 (Alkett)

numbers range between 278 - 327, so yes, quite a few.
Most of them seem to have served on the Eastern front,
but the Fuhrer-Begleit-Brigade ( which was part of 5th Panzerarmy)
listed 38 of them in stock on December 16th.

Halftrack @ Jagpanzer IV/L70 (Alkett)

The Jagdpanzer IV was a common sight during the Ardennes offensive,
and the L70 version saw combat in significant numbers for the first time -
although its offensive value was quite limited.
Anyway, while all other doctrines already have a Jagdpanzer IV,
I decided to also make it available for 5th Panzerarmy, too.
To add a little variety, I gave them the Alkett version.
( Old community model by DMZ & Eliwood )
Unlike the lower Vomag version, this one cannot be camoed for ambush,
but can instead be upgraded with Thomaschuerzen ( armor skirts )
While all other Jagpanzer versions got a buff in health, this one did not,
due to the more vertical armor plates and higher silhoutte.

no. onr nordwind map has pink sandbags, thats a known issue. no clue why,as pink means "missing texture", but sandbags and texture both are vanilla. :-/

Thanks, I really appreciate that.
BotB has a really small player base, unlike BK, EF or MC,
but comments like this keep me working on it, even after such a long time.
Unfortunately I am very busy with RL work and therefore
the time for modding is very rare.

Wait a minute? I cancelled Bastogne and Stoumont Counterack?
I recognized that Stoumont CA was not in the list in Version 3, but in 3.5 it should be in again.Isn't it in your version?
And I will check for Bastogne immediately.
( and there are still quite a few other bugs ;) )

I would go over, if "they" only would let me.
Rumors say that modding may be allowed after next patch, but that still does not mean anything yet...
I especially doubt that we will get hands on proper tools.

camo was used more at the end of the war, but the majority of german forces still wore fieldgrey.
