Post news Report RSS Black ICE 9.3 Update Released!

The 9.3 Update covers hundreds of fixes and a lot of new units to the Black ICE Mod!

Posted by on

New units

SS Heavy Panzer Brigades
SS Panzer-Jaeger Brigades

Guards Heavy Armor Brigades
Guards Mech Brigades
Guards Katushya Launchers

Motorcycle Recon units

Heavy Assault Guns

Heavy Tank Destroyers
Medium Tank Destoyers

Midget Submarines

Leader brigades
HQ defense brigades

French Foreign Legion
Bersaglieri brigades

The leader brigades are pure flavour counters atm which represent certain individuals and commands ( examples include Hitler, Tojo, Stalin, Rossevelt, Mussolini, Churchill, OKW, OKW, Commando supremo, SHAEF, Imperial HQ, STAVKA and others) At this point they are pure flavour and dont impact actual game play. However the intention is to tie them into the game via events which check for their existence and apply various effects if the leader unit has been destroyed. The big test is how the AI uses them. In most cases the leader is attached to a high level HQ and so avoids combat.

There are also a lot of other changes with new unit event OOBs, more decisions and bug fixes.

Because of all the new units and activation techs 9.3 wont work with save games... but this will be the last major change to the mod before TFH.
