Hey guys!

I am currently making a map/mod which takes place in the Battle of the Somme. As a side project if there is a blockade making "Gettysburg". I am using a Battle map to make the map as historically accurate as possible but...the characters taking part in the battle are Russians. Not very historically accurate.
Is anyone here experienced in making/alter models? I tried to convert import the .mesh files into 3dMax but my knowledge using this software and modeling itself is very limited.

Very nice, friend! I always use 3dsMax as modelling tools, so I think I can help you with such thing.
DoD released a plugin for Maya 9.0 which can do such thing too

Hello!

I've managed to find DoD .obj files on this site

P3dm.ru

I can alter the models with blender and then import the objects into the game by making them .mesh files via the toolbag and by configuring the .guy files with notepad++.
First thing I did was to finally get the German helmets historically accurate.

So in a way you CAN create every possible scenario :D

But I am still figuring out how to attach the models to the skeletons in the game, so they can be animated. I can configure the skeletons and ragdolls from other  models  in the .guy files, but the added meshes won't move. I am sure that I am missing a link somewhere. 

Got any Idea on how I can attach an existing skeleton to the .mesh?

I think there is skeleton file in the directory

And btw, can you teach me the full progress about the importing into the DoD?

Sure!

The year started a bit buisy. I hope I can find some time to write a tutorial on this matter next week.

I tried to import a skeleton into Blender and Maya but without success. Gues I will have to rig the models myself, import the new skeletons into DoD and edit the joints in toolbag.

The skelton files in the folders look like they are made with Maya so I will try to figure it out.

Really awesome game :) They should have done a second game of this. It would pass through the American Independence War,French Revolution and Napoleonic Invasions, The Alamo, Second World War, maybe Anglo-Zulu war.

I think even Game of Thrones (Battle of Blackwater) or Lord of Rings (Battle of Minas Tirith)

for a Darkest Days 2? ahahaha i don't think so. But yes, there should be an epic lotr game with the huge battles from the movies and have adventure between big battles. the player would control a soldier, it could have his band of soldiers. Most probably the player would control one of the Dunedain Rangers from the Grey Company.
For Game of Thrones there could be several campaigns, one for each king of the five kings, you would have Stark, Lannister, Stannis and Baelon campaigns plus Daenerys campaign

that could be cool! a Darkest Days game with a medieval level, maybe one in the Sea as a sailor from the English Royal Navy in the 18th century

Even maybe Mount & Blade Warband (Battle between Swadia and Nord) or Mount & Blade II Bannerlord (Battle between Southern Empire and Vlandia).

indeed. At least in a way like the last level from the first game, where you have to go guns blazing to the past, may be fun ehehe. mow down a whole army with a gun. But could be cool to implement melee combat to the player
