"So long as it's not the exact same arsenal as another nation"
Romania had 3 unique tank destroyers & 1 plane, everything else came from Czechoslovakia or Germany. All of the Yugoslavian & Slovakian equipment was from other countries.
Sweden on the other hand has enough unique units to fill several nations. I have 6 different tanks to choose from just for the post-war mode etc.
I plan to start work on missions once all the sides are complete, that however may take some time. Tech structures will be included in the next release.
As far as I know it should work.
Finland didn't produce enough equipment to make it a playable side, some of their units will be available via bonus crates tho.
Sweden however built up an impressive array of weapons during WW2. Many of which were on par or even surpassed that of other European nations. They also sold some of them to other countries, Finland being one of their main clients.
The Germans confiscated most of the French equipment for themselves after the armistice & blocked several efforts by the Vichy government to produce more. Only the French forces in North Africa were left largely intact. When the Americans landed in Morocco they fought back for a few days but then soon sided with them & joined the Free French.
The OpenRA engine is still in development & currently does not have all the features necessary for D-day.
Once OpenRA has matured more I may consider changing engine tho.
China, Poland & Sweden are planned for future releases but it will be some time before they are ready.
Vichy French is interesting but they used the same equipment as the Free French forces so the only difference would be their name & logo.
You haven't installed/launched Ares properly (glitchy buildings). You also have files from another mod in your RA2 folder that are interfering with D-day (only Engineers).
Japan will be add in the next release & the French buildings in the version after that.
Please post more information in the forum and I will try to help.
Japan will be added in the next release.
Naval units are still being worked on and are not available in the current version. I hope to have them finished for the next release though.
No, you can see Japan's amphibious tanks here: Ppmsite.com
I'm still learning things myself, soon after posting this I found another variant of the Type 98 Ke-Ni that I never knew about.
Yes it can be difficult to tell some units apart but that's just the way they were designed. I am confined to the limits of historical accuracy.
Can you elaborate? In FA2 you can access overlays from the menu on the left or the drop down menu on the right.
D-day's new terrain isn't compatible with the original RA2/YR maps or any custom maps that aren't specifically made for D-day.
Because Britain would get 15 types of tanks, France, Germany & Russia would get 2-5 & everyone else none...
There is still lots of tanks left for me to make :P
There was a WW1 mod for YR but sadly it didn't get very far. I would like to add a WW1 mode to D-day but it would be very unbalanced.
In the past tanks had secondary machine guns but they were removed for balance reasons. They may return when the infantry get reworked & expanded tho.
The "boat" is a Type 3 Ka-Chi tank :P
There is a large difference between a pre-war light tank and a post-war heavy, the heavy being able to flight of 10 light tanks etc so to keep things balanced the heavy tank needs to costs 10 times more.
Many people have also complained that the amount of credits you can gather is to high and thus the expensive heavy tanks to easy to obtain, making weaker cheaper light tanks pointless.
The economy will be redone in the next version of D-day to fix some of these issues.
If you mean the P-1000 then yes.
I'm still working on the Japanese buildings, it will probably be several months before I post any of them.
You can use Final Alert 2 to make maps for D-day, however it needs to be set up correctly for it to work. I'll write a tutorial in the future explaining what to do.
Yes, you also need to patch YR to v1.001 for Ares to work.
Without Ares 75% of D-day wouldn't work :P
How/were did you install the D-day files? If you got the vanilla version of YR & didn't even see the D-day loading screen or menu then you've install the files in the wrong place.
Launch Base is no longer supported within the community and dose not work with D-day or the latest versions of Ares.
My main problem is finding suitable aircraft, specifically bombers.
China will be added in the future but not Brazil.
