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.


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, I hope we've all enjoyed our holidays!

First off I would like to note that the new damage system has been implemented for all infantry weapons, and after some initial hilarity during internal testing we've seem to have found what we're looking for out of a "Realistic" CoH2.

As we currently do not have a full implementation of vehicle based stats, we decided internally (Well, when I say "we" I mean I simply went ahead and did it as a placeholder choice whilst I wait for my Armour tech to finish his calculations) to increase all anti-tank/vehicle main guns by 25% of their original value.

This means that counters are essentially the same, but vehicle based combat is faster paced than it was before. We didn't want it to become to unfair/visceral because vehicles then become less and less useful. So this is our current setup and hopefully it should work as intended.

Squad sizes have been increased for the most part, with very few (If any) exceptions. Costs are currently being redone internally and upkeep is next on the list as there are currently major issues with keeping the general pacing of gameplay going with larger squad sizes. This was an expected but annoying outcome from increasing squad sizes, and it is by far the only real issue I have at the moment that stands between internal and an official Alpha release to the community.

Having said all of this, if you haven't noticed we have moved to a different Moddb page:

This will be the last update on this Moddb page in regards to the CoH2 successor of this modification, those who are interested in following the successor mod should subscribe to the new page in order to receive timely updates in the future.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone for staying with me thus far. I'm aware of the massive bumps in the road that this mod has hit before I took over and most importantly when I took this modification over from Ken. There were tons of internal issues such as bugs, crashes, and overall inability to continually update the modification in a timely manner due to it's lack of organization and size.

There is then the issue of the port to Company of Heroes 2, which included an absurdly long period of "Down Time" in which the team was more or less stagnant. But through all of that I still seem to have a rather decently sized following, and to be honest whether it is ten people or ten thousand it means a lot to me.

So in conclusion, I ask that people be patient, and you'll get the CoH2 Alpha of The Last Crusade: 44-45 soon!

Thanks again,

So I have freetime for this week (How I managed to get it I have no idea) So I've begun inputting values from our old tables, with one or two changes here and there.

As CoH2 maps are generally smaller, the max range for the first build will be 40 and not 60. I'll see how this works out along with everything else. Please don't expect tier/roster changes yet. You'll get a new damage model and some stat/price changes on units for now. Most notably the armour on units will be lowered. (COUGH Shock Troops and Obers COUGH).

Expect some sort of steam release fairly soon as these are basic (And thus quick) changes.

For the initial releases you will not. Currently the idea is essentially to take all of the vanilla rosters/setups and leave them the same but give a more visceral experience for the player.

So if you don't have X Doctrine, you still won't be able to use them. But since I'm not actually going to move anything in them anywhere right now, you should be fine.

As for the long-term, I have been openly asking Relic in multiple forms of communication for some sort of "Modding Summit" Similar to what CA did for Total War. Questions like these need to be answered, and this is also why I have no intention of adding new units to the mod even if they are in the files as I do not know whether this is acceptable or not.

I refuse to put a ton of time into moving things around only to be told that I'm not supposed to touch them, so until then you'll get a far more visceral and tactical CoH2 experience with the same roster of units.
