this is a sequel to the Gizmotron user-mod for Axis and Allies. there will be new types of weather, more territory maps in skirmish mod, (larger maps in skirmish mode as well). new experience ranks and bonuses (regiments keep getting bonuses up to 2000 exp points). nearly 100 special ops, new water-based units like cruisers and submarines (with torpedo attacks). nations to be included are Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Communist China, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Nationalist China, Netherlands, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. more nations available for WW2 mode, see images for details. tentative Alpha-test release date is March 2014, the final version will hopefully be done by November 2014

to say again, this is not a finished mod. the WW2 map has been dramatically changed and will definitely have bugs and be prone to crashing. dozens of new territories have been added into the Metagame. I've also found a way to integrate a lot of minor countries by using generic 'star' generals. This way Yugoslavia, Sweden, Spain, Philippines, and Greece can be included in WW2 without having them controlled by a major Axis or Allied nation. all of the minor nations default in their allegiance to the Allies for the time being. In later versions of the game I will investigate the possibility of making them a third, 'neutral' team. but I'd like to change the AI first so that they don't take aggressive action against their neighbors first.

I've added Belgian defensive armies to the Netherlands faction in WW2.

I know that there are some missing skins for Finland and the Netherlands. since those two factions were donated to us by Cpt. Kramer I've been making adjustments to integrate them more readily with our new work. (he kept most of his skins in a completely separate folder and I would rather bring them in line with our coding practices than try to make the installation process even more complicated than it already is.

eventually, players should expect a completely revised US Marines. I plan on making them more like the German Infantry and Panzergrenadier divisions. having US players capable of spamming flame tanks from the get-go seemed like too much of an advantage.

we still have a lot of changes to make... and nothing has been done about the SP campaigns at this time.

I'm in the middle of cleaning up excess files and converting it into a download.

I'm expecting to have it ready by the end of this upcoming week.

Okay played a Custom game on The Burning of Moscow Scenario as an observer to watch the AI.

The following bugs I found:

Soviet BA-64 Cars are labeled as Wz.29 Ursus.

The German Panzer IVD has its main gun separate from the model and float in the air in the front of it after it fires its gun.

The game suddenly ended after sometime when the game crashed to desktop and I got an error message, something about an Exception Access Violation I think.

Also I saw a lot of Soviet T-60 Tanks are these the T-70 mislabeled or is it the actual T-60 Light Tank?

Overall, very few bugs. The crashing to desktop thing was odd though.

The reason the BA-64 is called Wz.29 is the makers of the game did that, heck most of the units in the game have the wrong name or wrong weapon. One example are the russian ships in the vanilla version: they never existed nor looked liked that on the blueprints.

the T-60 and T-70 are different units. I'll post a screen shot for clarification.

I'll get those other two issues addressed later today. normally that's from the game expecting to find something and not being able to find it. I had that problem with the JPN Paratrooper Marines (for some reason para units can't be allowed to have melee attacks. I was pretty sure I got rid of all of those types of units, though)

An easy fix for the panzer is to delete the recoil .kf in its model folder (Data/Units/Ger/...). Some of the models have this issue. When I did the models I used the original bones and they have to be perfectly lined up or this happens.

Which file would that be? There is two one named GERTankLightRecoi1.kf and GERTankCORecoi1.kf

This is under GERTankCO.

Thanks for those answers, Also when a new version of the mod comes out in the future, do you install it by overwriting the files or?

Why is there stuff from different factions in some countries unit listings on the editor? Like French ships in the Japanese Faction list?

Also can cutscene actors be used as usable units? I want to form a Marine Rifleman Squad with just Rifleman, is it possible?

well, the main reason that some units are listed under different countries is because it's been a busy and unpleasant year for me. and I never got around to updating everything. I do plan on updating all of the placement groups, though. what you want to do SOUNDS like you want a create a new regiment. and that's pretty easy. just change the default marine regiment so that there are no machinegun infantry. the only caveat is that you might need to add the 'support' property to the marine. but otherwise, that's a very simple change.

Is stuff like editing regiments done in the editor or in the files?

for this game the editing is done at the .tgi file level with a text editor.

How do I do this exactly? I am guessing it means under the slot entries changing the code from the mg line to infantry line? Where would "support" be written? The property ids or somewhere else?

now that I look at it, the original Marine rifleman already has the support property. (the original marine regiment only had one MG in a rearguard position). so all you should need to do is change the slot entries so that they all read infantry_marine and get rid of the MG units.

but, yeah, the properties section is where you would add that in. every unit has to be assigned a potential position. remember that the captain property is very vulnerable to special ops. so don't use the same type of unit as CO and the frontline. I found I was killing off multiple regiments instantly with some of the special ops-- because I made the mistake of using the same captain-property unit for the whole regiment! imagine using communist purge and wiping out an entire friendly regiment-- so, one must take care when coding these things!

Thanks, is it the same process for vehicles? And if I want the Marine Rifleman regiment to be a new regiment, do I save it with a new name for the file like Marine Rifleman Infantry?
