Hi all! We, the Back2Fronts mod team, are proudly announcing the Back2Fronts Mod for Call Of Duty 2. The mod wants to bring much more intense, realistic and full battle experience. We want to achieve this by giving the player more options and more diversity. Mod will be separated into SP and MP part and those parts will also be released separately.

This news post takes a look onto first ingame tests of the work that was announced in previous news post and also something new.

Hi all! After some time of work I can finaly show some new ingame tests.

You can watch here, or use video section.

Animations
Here we have first test of the work that was announced in previous news post - SVT-40 animation (scoped in the video). Plus I added a version of this animation for AVT-40 (unscoped in the video), the reason is that the AVT-40 has longer magazine, other than that both animations are identical.

CoD2 B2F Tokarev AVT-40 and SVT-40 (final)
Final version of the animation for Tokarev AVT-40 and SVT-40.

The second new thing is a new animation variation for early FG-42, I altered the whole motion to the geometry of the early FG-42 and made a different cocking. That means that both FG-42 - early and late will have their unique animations!

CoD2 B2F FG-42E scoped and unscoped (final)
Final version of the animation for FG-42E.


Models

New and older tanks
The next thing I want to finish of are the tanks - T-34/76, Panzer IV and Panther. Briefly to the development:

  • The T-34/76 and Panzer IV are comleted in name of shape - I have prepared finally both alive and destroyed models. Panzer IV is available in 4 versions - Ausf F2 (no schurzen), Ausf G (turret schurzen), Ausf H (body and turret schurzen, with or without foliage). The T-34/76 is ready with or without petrol cistern on the back of its body.
  • Textures for Panzer IV are finished, including DX7 and DX9 in various color schemes - Winter, Africa, Feldgrau Europe, tri-color Europe (2 versions). Textures for T-34/76 are finished (so far) only for DX7 in Winter and Europe schemes. System of decals (insignia) is completed for both tanks.
  • The Panther's shape is in progress, adding detail and correcting errors of the original model porting. Panther's shape is finished (alive), destroyed is still unfinished.
  • Textures for Panther are finished (so far) only for DX7 in one (Feldgrau Europe) variation. The system of decals (insignia) is in progress.

EDIT START

MCh2207Cz wrote:I will add tank pictures later, once added, this comment will be deleted.

Pictures were added. I made a 3D scene as a background environment for the renders to make the pictures interesting. Please note that this is not ingame test. It is a render from 3D program.
