Very easy to install and extremely light (200 Mb), D-DAY add-on is a complete cosmetic rework historically accurate based on the Normandy battle during the D-Day on June 6th 1944, the D-DAY add-on will take you into the Normandy battle and give you access to the real combat units who fought in Normandy, all the fake uniforms, flags, symbols, icons etc... are replaced by the real ones for a better game play experience, this Historical add-on is a visual/cosmetic change, your COH Blitzkrieg Mod game will remain untouched.
What is D-DAY JUNE 1944 add-on & How it work? very simple, D-DAY Add-on is a mod for a mod! when the D-DAY add-on folder is placed into your Blitzkrieg mod main folder the PC will take in count the add-on folder first and apply all the cosmetics changes for the game, to remove the add-on, simply remove the add-on folder, easy peasy!
You will need to install manually the D-DAY data file to your Blitzkrieg Mod main folder game, just make sure to read the instructions below, or attached to the D-DAY add-on .Zip file.
This add-on will not touch any of your original game files, will not change the way you play Blitzkrieg, will not break anything from your beloved game, and will not slow down your online multi players gaming experience, also, and i really think its important for a lot of people here, you don't have to be an expert or a genius in informatics to install it.
You need to have the latest Blitzkrieg Mod installed to your ORIGINAL STEAM Company of Heroes game, for info the latest Blitzkrieg mod is this one (v 126.96.36.199.): Moddb.com , plus the latest Blitzkrieg Patch (v.188.8.131.52.) Moddb.com and your Steam account ( Steamcommunity.com ) updated before installing this add-on, this add-on also is made for the Originals and untouched Blitzkrieg Mod files, if you have customs files others than the originals ones this add-on "might" not work properly, im saying "might" because i tested also with custom files and its working so far, for more informations go to Blitzkrieg Mod official forum here: Forum.bkmod.net
** Installation description:
D-DAY JUNE 1944 Historical add-on :
Go to your COH Main directory file and find your main Blitzkrieg folder, in the main Blitzkrieg folder you need to add the « Data » D-DAY add-on folder in your main Blitzkrieg Mod folder.
Directions: c:/Program Files(x86)-->Steam-->Steam Apps-->Common-->Company of Heroes Relaunch-->Blitzkrieg, Normaly in the Blitzkrieg folder you should have 2 folders: "Archives" - "Locale" its in there that you need to add a 3rd folder, the D-DAY add-on "Data" folder.
NOTE: When you will launch Blitzkrieg Mod, the launcher will tell you that "Warning! There are unknown directories in your Blitzkrieg folder, These might make your game incompatible with other players, Consider running a cleanup" no worries its normal, just run Blitzkrieg Mod, my files are online compatible, actually if you want to remove Historical add-on you can use as well the launcher by clicking "Clean Blitzkrieg Directory"
D-DAY JUNE 1944 add-on featuring historical units involved in the Normandy battle during the Overlord operations (June 6th 1944) until the last battle in Berlin:
****The D-DAY JUNE 1944 add-on is FULLY ONLINE MULTIPLAYER COMPATIBLE, EVEN IF PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE ADD-ON, (The campaign mode is still not supported by Blitzkrieg Mod and by Historical add-on).
***TEAM AFRIKA 43***(Work In Progress, not released yet)
Justforfun1: Project Leader/Coder/Art/Realization.
AFRIKA 43 will be a total Blitzkrieg Mod conversion on the 1940/43 desert war between the Axis Afrika Korps and the Commonwealth 8th Army to your COH Blitzkrieg Mod (2 factions in total, WH+CW), all units represented in this new historical add-on are historically accurate, new exclusive battles desert maps historically accurate as well will be provided.
For now the Installation will be the same as D-Day June 1944 described more up, you will need to remove the D-Day files (data folder and the dataattrib folder if you still have "Ranks") from your Blitzkrieg Mod main folder by replacing them by the Afrika 43 data/dataattrib folders, we are planning to make a special installer who will give you the choice to start Blitzkrieg Mod with the D-Day June 1944 add-on or Start with AFRIKA 43... we will see if its possible.
British 8th Army:
-7th Armoured Division. (the Desert rats)
-9th Australian Division.
-LRDG Jeep & Commandos (Long Range Desert Group)
-Including new vehicles such Crusaders tanks Mk II & III. Sherman Mk III.
-164th Infantry Division.
-15th Panzer Division.
-21th Panzer Division.
-17th Italian Infantry Division "Pavia".
-Fallschirmjager. (Ramcke Brigade)
-Including new vehicles such Panzer III Ausf. N & J, Panzer II Ausf. F, Sdkfz 231 Fu.
-1 Doctrine (Army) per faction (Afrika Korps/8th Army) instead of the 3 normally present per factions in COH, with 16 upgrades each, each doctrines/Army will give you access to Infantry/Tanks/Artillery regrouping the best of the best materials existing per Army compared to the normal 3 specific COH doctrines, you will have to choose depending of your needs where you want to go first, the Arty units will be reached only at the end of each doctrines, why 1 doctrine instead of 3? well the advantage of one doctrine is to have access to the materials you need depending of the way your opponent will play and not being "Stuck" only with one doctrine and be limited with unique materials, all army are complete and will oppose great forces for epics infantry/tanks battles FUN GUARANTEED!
Proper Credits will be given here to the good people who helped me to make this thing work when AFRIKA 43 will be released.
AFRIKA 43 will be online compatible IF players will have AFRIKA 43 as well in their Blitzkrieg Mod.
