No Afrika korps infantry uniforms in DCG.... Pity.

Isn't it possible to add the original MOW german Afrika korps infantry units to DCG ?

Unfortunately it isnt as easy as you might think it is. Vehicles and such are easy to give a desert camouflage scheme since all 3D vehicles, cannons, cars etc uses a single 3D model to which the camouflage skin is applied. When using the same vehicle in a winter terrain, another skin with winter colors are applied (if it exists).

When it comes to infantry models, these are made in a different way: There are different versions of 3D models for Desert, Winter and/or Spring/Summer/Autumn. If we used the 3D model of the desert infantry, it would look ok in Afrika campaigns, but to have troops running around in winter maps with shorts, etc would look silly. The same thing is true if we used winter clad soldiers in a summer campaign or worse, in a desert campaign. In the end we ended up using the summer 3D models of all infantry. Sure we could make desert, winter etc skins for the summer models, but it isnt very high up on our "to-do" list.
