Update News #7

News

For all the newcomers, the main purpose of this FoB series (including 4 related mods) is to increase historical accuracies from at least 40 ~ (less than) 50% in the Vanilla/Original version into somewhere between 60 ~ 70%. Also to give new experiences and even more challenging combat scenarios for COD WaW players in general as well.

Now for the details, we decide to update all of the mods with quite a lot of new things:

20220316230725 1

Fall of Berlin 3.6 version:
- Officially included COD3 models as a main part of this mod, also bring some new COD3 German models into the game as Waffen SS (mostly).
Note: You can check the original COD3+WaW mod (Call of Duty 3 German Military mod, made by venomgj) from here: Gamebanana.com

- Aiming accuracy of teammate AIs will be increased even more.
- Kriegsmarine 'Naval' infantry will appear in the last section of 'Heart of the Reich' and the entire 'Downfall' only.
- One of the new COD3 models will be used as Luftwaffe infantrymen.
- Some weapon randomization among German/Axis troops will be modified.
- New models and rearrangement on some German/Axis headgears.
- **Some new extra iwd/minor mod files, please read our instructions carefully if you want to use them.'
- *The latest upodated Pacific Theater 1.8 will be included.
- New modifications on certain weapons:
1) **Fix certain weapon sounds in the Eviction mission and we also bring these weapons into the mission: STG44, Gew43, SVT-40, and DP-27.
2) **Fix Kar98k variants sounds in the Downfall mission and we also bring it into the mission as well.
3) Fix DP27 sounds in some missions.
4) Fix 30 cal and M1 Carbine for every Pacific missions.
5) Increase DMG output for every Semi-Automatic rifles (they were hideously nerfed down in the vanilla version) and all the Sniper rifles.
6) Increase rate of fire on DP-27. And fix its missing sounds in 'Their Land THeir Blood' and 'Ring of Steel' missions.
7) New scope overlay for the Scoped Mosin Nagant, change from the vanilla ver into a proper "German #1" (Soviet use the same scope overlay as German side).

Vendetta: Darkest Days 2.4 regular version:
- Similar with above, but add some new COD3 models as alteranated skins for Heer/Wehrmacht troops instead.
- 71st Infantry Division insignia on German Sd.Kfz. 251 Half Tracks (replace the old 24th Panzer Division insignia, it will only appear on the Pz. IVs).
- A minor change for one of the Soviet models, remove buttons to make it looks like a proper M35 uniform.
- Add sounds for SVT-40 in Vendetta and bring it into the mission as well.
- As from above, apart from some Soviet soldiers (Daletski's unit), few German soldiers will be equipped with the captured SVT-40 as well.
- No more Luftwaffe Anti-aircraft units (previos verions). But it can be included later as a second version if more than '10 persons' want us to bring them back.

Are you sure you install all the files correctly? I'd recommend you to read the instructions again (read me files). And if you still have the problem, we can continue talking about this in the private chatbox/message.

May I ask do you install all of the files (especially the mod.ff files) in the right folders/directories? And if you want, we can continue talking about this in the private chatbox/message.

Hey! I must say is a nice idea to "remake" all the Mission to make them more historical or at least to some extend^^

What i want to ask you if it´s possible if you could make some German and/or Japanease Missions too? or make some of the already existing Mission and rework them as Axis Missions^^ That would be very great! :)

And the second Question - is it possible to get some of you Models/Skins of the German Soldiers like the Hitler Youth and Volkssturm Skins from the Berlin Mission Mod? and maybe use them for other Mods and so? They look great!

Sure, you can use every skin/model we got for your projects!

Also, I apologize to say that because of his busy stuff, it seems like Mr.deathwarrior is taking a very long absent. And we have no time and idea of how to create a custom map also...

OK, I've made a new (experimental) textures mod here: Moddb.com

I also create quite many German skins, you can check them out in its 'Extra Textures' folder. Recommend you to check on the 'German Bodies' and 'Nordland' subfolders inside.

Hey! thanks for the reply! I must say i really love your Skins! :) and your new experimentel Skins are fantastic! Please keep up this you good work! ^-^

What i want to ask you is if you could make me some Skins that aren´t made yet or that i don´t found :/ Like Division "Großdeutschland" Skins and some more SS Skins (Both just in one colour/without Camo).

Wish that the Axis Player Mod will get an update soon so i can use it with your Skins^^

OK, the Großdeutschland + new Heer skins mod is finished. You can check it out from here: Moddb.com

Also, I have planned to release a new (edit) version of the Waffen SS mod within 1-2 months.

Well, there was a 'Großdeutschland' skin mod on the Nexus website. And luckily that I had already downloaded it (with some other skin mods) before Nexus decide to purge most of its contents, so it's possible that my future textures mod will be featured with the modified version of GD skins also.
However, due to a lot of busy stuff here... so I afraid it's gonna quite a long time before I can get back to modding stuff again.

You're welcome! For more interesting skins, I'd suggest you check the rest of our mods thoroughly and feel free to use them if you like.

And I must apologize about the issue, now we really couldn't make the custom missions... :(
