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.
After intensive testing, I got a very positive message - CoD2 can use the same equipment system as CoDWaW with all its benefits.

If you read the summary of the news you probably don't believe me but it's true. I can save the character's body into one modelfile and all the equipment into another modelfile. Then I put both into a script file and voila! the model is put togather ingame!
I came to this discovery just by accident. I was looking through the CoDWaW mod tools and decided to look how the gear model is attached to the character's body. When I looked at the script I noticed it is very similar to the CoD2 system of adding a helmet to the character. I decided that this is a great oporthunity for a test. I created a plain character model without any equipment. Then I created a model with just equipment in it. Then I wrote a script to put these models togather and run a test. And in worked! See pictures below from the test (each equipment variation has different set of gear stuff):
This method gives a huge amount of possibilities because I can now make a difference in script if the AI has got for example a MP40 or a K98k. In other words, I can make pouches for various models and make a script that will decide which pouch belongs to which weapon. So a crazy stuff like this can be created:
