Normandy 1944: European Theatre


Normandy '44: European Theater combines a higher level of realism with a more elaborate doctrine system, which incorporates almost 50 different military units that took part in the campaigns of Jun-Sept. 1944. This spectrum ranges from battalions of free Polish and French units serving under the main allied armies to volunteers from the Eastern Front that served in the German Wehrmacht. This is only a small portion of the doctrine variety however, as this mod feature numerous well known units of all factions as well. The mod also features numerous new abilities and custom made units each with a completely revamped size and structure. Between custom made units and structures with historically correct skins, Normandy '44 offers over 150 NEW UNITS, making for an almost endless variety of different scenarios and unit actions. Combined these factors provide for an experience unlike any other mod for COH that has earned us a spot in the Top 100 Mods THE LAST THREE YEARS RUNNING.
I hope you'll join us.

DEDICATIONS:

To Steve Mullins, whose passing was truly tragic and untimely. I'll miss you, my friend.

And to Alfred, my faithful Cat who sat and continues to sit by me whilst I pour hours and hours into this modification. His love and playful personality are what keep me going no matter how hard both modding and life can be sometimes. Thanks, Alfie.

Regardless of my own personal dedication, this mod continues it's dedication to our former team member and hallowed friend, Christian Werner von Schlippenbach, who contributed so much.

Hello everyone.

Firstly, my most sincere apologies for not posting more often. I have recently had to move from my current home to an apartment, and the family issues surrounding this have taken it's toll.

I suppose some may rightly ask "Why is he posting this in the CoH1 variant?"

Well, that is because after much waiting, discussion and deliberation I think I will be moving back to Company of Heroes 1. The sequel while enjoyable does not currently offer the kind of tools I require to give what I need to everyone, and it does not show any sign of improving on this matter anytime soon.

It will take some time and much effort for me to revamp the CoH1 modification to a standard that I find acceptable. I have learned much from my experiences in testing and balancing the basics of the CoH2 variant of the modification, and I hope to carry that knowledge over to this variant of the mod.

Many people have stated and will continue to state that in comparison to "Sweeten's" version of Normandy 44 mine was...lacking. I must say that regardless they are quite correct. I did not have the time nor the experience that Sweeten did when I first took over this modification and not only did I not share all of his sentiments on where this modification should go and how it should play, but I did not (and still do not) understand his organization of the various files, folders of the modification. This made it very difficult to change things effectively and slowed progress down.

However; I would like to say that I will be looking into fully revamping the CoH1 variant of this modification. I do not currently have a modeler or a dedicated skinner (The latter I need very, very badly to replace performance killing skins), so if there are people looking to fill that position please contact me.

Firstly I will work on unifying the systems I perfected in the CoH2 variant of the modification and applying them to this version. Infantry aren't going to die from one burst of a .50 Caliber on a tank anymore, and in general gameplay will be much more manageable for the player. I will attempt to unify and fix as many bugs as possible, but please understand how big the modification is and how individualized the file are.

Most do not know that every individual soldier and vehicle have their own file (plus a squad file). So a squad of 12 men will most likely have at least 6-7 different files, and at most 13. I will look into attempting to condense this as best as possible but it will take much time and effort to do so.


Thanks for reading. I will post another update somewhere around the end of the month, or most likely after April 7th which is when my studies for the semester end.

First, let me start by saying that N44 has always been my favorite modification of a WW2, period, and that I congratulate you JudgeAlfred for keeping the flame alive, and look forward to trying out the next version in the works :)

Now, I have a little question, if you don't mind. I used to be quite active on the Relic forums back in the day, and worked as an alpha/beta tester in the 2.0 SVN (working with Twitchy) right as Sweeten was phasing out due to his health problems. Now, the question is, do you, or any of you in the community know if this version was ever released? I tried installing several versions from this page, but none were the right ones. For reference, the one I'm talking about has the Sturmtiger and Jagdtiger call-ins, SS Fallschirmjäger Kommando, and the KV-2 for the Soviets (among other things).

So, if anyone can point me to this version for a little nostalgia, I'd greatly appreciate it :)

P.S.: If you need any help from a professional historian in the research department, feel free to ask! If not, good luck on the mod and best wishes :)

Well you're somewhat in luck, as I am the same individual! (Twitchy, that is).

I know which one you are talking of off the top of my head but I don't recall the SVN information myself, and I don't actually know whether the site for it is still up.

As for your request to join as a professional Historian, at the very least we're on the same page in that regard. I always enjoy speaking with other like minded individuals so I wouldn't mind having the extra feedback.

Apologies for the late reply, however; ModDB rarely informs me when someone posts.

My semester is essentially finished on Wednesday.

I will be commencing full-time work on that very evening. I have contacted both my modeler and my skinner with lists containing things I need to revamp the weapons/skins department.

As for the next version's release date; I don't want to give a specific date as I am more or less a one man coding team so if anything interferes with my schedule it can set things back.

I would say at the very earliest the end of this month. However it really depends on how easy it is to revamp the infantry first. If all goes well I can have the Infantry done within a week or so of full work time, and the vehicles are easier than the infantry.

This mod updates the classic CoH flavor, with increased tactical play! No longer are you invaded by swarms of infantry or tanks. No longer are there OPed units to dominate the map. And the better selection of units?! What else can I say! I really love this mod!
