READ THE MANUAL AND README.TXT BEFORE PLAYING

A NOTE FOR BEGINNERS:
The AI is challenging, depending also on the map. The easiest map so far is Country Roads. If you are a beginner set the easy game difficulty in the option menu, otherwise you might find the game frustrating. You can increase the difficulty setting later, when you have learned the game mechanisms.

INSTALLATION:
Unzip the file in the Mods folder of Men of War. If it does not exist, create it and then unzip the mod there. Start Men of War, go to Option, then go to the MOD tab. There look for the mod in the left list, select it and use the arrow to move to the right list. Press Apply.

KNOWN ISSUES:

The reinforcements menu might cross the display boundaries sometimes, especially when you are using a 16:10 monitor. There is not much I can do because the reinforcement menu is hardcoded, so I can't change it. I've tried to add more reinforcement categories, so It shouldn't be a great problem now. I'm sorry but apparently making a slider for menus and windows was too hard for DMS

MOD GOALS:
Men of War is probably the best ww2 strategy game on the market, but it lacks most of all one thing: a skirmish mode where you can have huge battles against an AI player. It is a shame that you have so many units available that you can rarely use in the campaigns.
Battlefield mode is a unique skirmish mode, more advanced than those you can find in Assault Squad, whose objectives are the following:
• Create a challenging single player skirmish with a great variety of battles.
• Build a sandbox to allow inexperienced players to set up their own scenario quickly given a prebuilt map.

BATTLEFIELD MODE IN DETAILS:
Battlefield mode is a skirmish mode based on map point controls. Unlike multiplayer games, control points provide resources to buy reinforcements. Each control point grants you command points, used to buy reinforcements, and tech points. Tech points are needed in order to unlock more advanced units. Every minute you receive a new amount of command and tech points based on the control points you own.
Besides each nation can use a set of Support Commands which unlock Support Operations. Support Operations are special abilities like airstrikes or special unit reinforcements which can be unlocked by support points. Some control points provide you with these support points.

CURRENT PROGRESS:
The mod now includes several Battlefield scenarios and 5 playable factions (Germany, USA, Commonwealth, Japanese Empire and Soviet Union). Besides I have completely reworked gun stats to make them more realistic (based on penetration tables from www.tarrif.net) and added new units (some taken from other mods, see the credits in readme.txt).

FUTURE GOALS:
• Include Soviet Union and Axis allied nations as playable factions in the Battlefield mode.
• Convert the mod for Assault Squad.
• Make some tutorial missions for the Battlefield mode.
• Write a tutorial explaining how to set up your custom battlefield scenarios.
• Create a campaign for each of the nations.

The following video shows a gameplay demo of the new upcoming faction: the Axis Foreign Army. In this video I am playing using the Luftwaffe support command against Soviet Union. Among several things, you can see in action the new JU-88 bomber and the JU-87 versions armed with 37mm HE and APCR cannons. You can also access the video in the section of the mod page in this website.

CHANGES FROM THE CONCEPT:

  • The Airborne assault does not start with a strafing run, but drops 8 Fallschirmjägers and infantry close to them will be automatically targeted by a BF-109.
  • Osttruppen soldiers are different from regular infantry, but their weapon skill is 1.
  • Sturmpioneers can build both FlaK 41 emplacements and FlaK 38 emplacements.
  • Gebirgsjäger squad has the new AT launcher Raketenwerfer 43 instead of LG-40.

It is not, the problem is I have very little free time and I still have to fix the savegame bug.

Yes, it does work perfectly fine. He might have just lost the .exe in his default folder, such as 'downloads'. Nice mod by the way. Much more entertaining than the usual skirmish, as each play is more or less dynamic. I will have to look into how to create new maps for this mod, though.

Unique and much needed, in my opinion, mod, that provides the opportunity for a good old random "multiplayer-style" (unscripted, unlike any scenario, that come in a sackful) comp-stomp on a great variety of maps, which was long missing for so many Men of War players.
