Total Conversion modification for Battle of Empires: 1914-1918 .

Introducing a WW2 modification for Bestway studios title, Battle of Empires: 1914-1918.

The goal of 'Totaler Krieg 1939-45' is a unique one for an RTS title. It doesn't focus on balancing, or anything 'game' related. No, this modification's sole aim and goal is to bring the most historically accurate portrayal of WW2 as made possible by the GEM engine to your screens - "A total revamp and historical conversion".

Nothing is left untouched. All assets, models, textures except those such as fauna and buildings have been, or are being completely replaced. Each faction of each alliance, Axis powers, Commintern, and those of the Allied alliance will be represented in some form or another with no detail spared; uniforms, helmets, weaponary, soldierly equiptments, voices, soldier portraits, flags and other faction specific items will be present. Each individual texture has been painstakingly recreated with the greatest attention to detail and care in order to preserve the integrity of the modifications goal, and also to honor those who served and fell during the greatest conflict in history.

For those out there who have longed for a game which puts the highest emphasis on realism, regardless of the advantages and disadvantages exposed on the battlefield, then this work is for you.

Support me and you will be rewarded with an experience never before seen in a game.

- Every faction represented to some degree, greater emphasis on the larger powers such as (Commonwealth, Soviet Union, France, United States of America & Poland), co-billigarent nations such as satellite, puppet and non-allianced nations for example, Croatian, Georgian Ostruppen, Belgian SS, French SS, Polish Forces in exile, French & Dutch, French and German partisans.

- Historically accurate uniforms and equiptment variations for all nations, for all time-periods from 1940 to 1945, on both the Western and Eastern theaters of War.

- Weaponry and ballistic characteristics have all been incorporated to their realistic values.

- Each armed force of each faction will be featured, including the Army, Airfoce, Navy and other specialist force such as the Waffen SS

- Correct Squad, Section, Platoon and higher configurations of each army to match their war-time numbers.

- Completely overhauled Menu, interface, Ui and Music.

Thanks for reading & maintaining an interest in my work.

Hello Sturm ! I did a massive script ( Took me more than 10 hours ) when the first version came out and i cant load the editor " packages/totaller_krieg/global/interface.pak/interface/action/barricade.set

Will the second version affect my entire script ? It would be a waste :(

No, the new version should not break your script, it should be compatible aslong as the units involved are not altered.

In front are Kriegsmarine-Schutze Kommando Infanterie, behind you have Hitlerjugend Flakhelpers (blue), Hiterjugend Combat Patrol (black), SS Leader, to the left German Army Artillery Officer acting as ZugFuehrer with a platoon medical orderly, vet NCOs. Then RAD (Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Div), labour force troops with grenade bags. Behind them you have the old men of the Volkssturm. To the right you have SS Charlemagne (French) and some other SS units.

Why do they have armbands on both arms? Shouldn't it be on the left arm?

Lies about upcoming factions and lies about pretty much every feature of the mod.
