Greetings, everyone. The most powerful and expensive unit available to the Wehrmacht now stands before you: the Maus tank.
It is the last unit to be unlocked in the game, and when it is unlocked and purchased, then the enemies of Germany will quake with fear.
The SS Waffen's Maus is an even more terrifying sight. Capable of inspiring nearby allied troops, and even scaring the enemy into retreat.
Finally, here is the preview of the Bonus Faction I mentioned. I won't actually give you the name, but here is the preview image. Note that you won't hear or see much more about this for a while because I won't really be doing any more work on it until the rest of the mod is prepared.
And that's all for now. More announcements will come in the future.
Bonus Faction =
The Confederacy ?
Pretty much. The South did not win the Civil War, though, this is a new uprising in Dixie due to discontent with the government and its perceived ineptitude. This Bonus Faction will partially balance the Axis to the Allies in terms of faction numbers, and create a unique gameplay experience for those who want it (it won't be in the campaign). This faction will be the last one worked on and/or released for this mod.
Give them mainly old American, British and German weaponry to show that they truly are insurgents/rebels etc.
Germany don't need old weaponry and insurgents could easily obtain old Allied weaponry from police etc.
Nice to see that monster in the game, but you should give some ways for the allies to destroy it, balance wise. Or it could be immensly expensive to field.
They get a nuke that can wipe out bases... I think you've got balance enough in that.
germans should get v 2 rockets or something
and the us the patton or instead of shermans and pz 4 there should only be tigers panthers and pershings or soemthing or a t30 tank destroyer
Trust me, the Maus is expensive. The nuke, however, is even more so.
1 $85,000 P-47 with 8 HVAR or 2 250lb bombs is more than enough to kill the $500,000 Super-Mouse.
they were really cool-looking, though, I will give them that
The Allies don't have air superiority right now, mainly due to the ME-262. The Luftwaffe is keeping the both the Army Air Corp and the RAF busy at the moment.
that the me262 was a superplane able to completely negate the allied advantage of superior numbers is a common misconception; p51s and p47s were able to shoot them down quite frequently. if you want the germans to have believable air superiority give them the he162 'volksjager' (perormance+ease of production) or the ta183 'huckbein' (was years ahead of its time). the 'schwalbe' has been, quite frankly overrated.
also, the Maus was historically a huge waste of resources. you should give the germans the late-war "x" panzers. they never left the drawing boards but were very advanced and far more practical than the Maus. no designs currently exist so you could even have fairly free reign to design it as you saw fit
or look at soem of the plans and design your own made up tanks
that looks like a german e series tanks and give it your own chareteristics and name
after all thsi is amade up world (.Y.) ;)
I've said it before, there will be no completely fictional weapons in this mod, not even for the Confederacy.
@Patton, Germany has other jets, the ME-262 is just the most common. The E-series will be included in the Panzer Elite faction, but the Wehrmacht gets by with older weaponry, such as the Maus, whose gun size and armor thickness are useful with Allied planes mostly out of the skies.
Actually, I believe that my new team member may be initiating work on the E-series project as we speak, so may have your thirst for new German armor quenched soon...
maybe the "Totenkopfgruppe"?
and again the ripped model from an other game ... nice tiger 205, the same **** on different days
put new side or army in game
Be patient, the Bonus Faction, astutely referred to as the Confederacy, will be brought in game as soon as is practicable. Note, however, that this is the South making another bid for independence, they did not win the First American Civil War. As such, most of their weapons have been purchased from arms dealers or given to them by axis nations.
Man or Mau5?
I always read that as dead mau five
Holy crap. Are you telling us that in the world of 1949, the Confederate states of America didn't fall in the American Civil War? I wonder what side they are on, Axis or Allies?
No, the Confederate States did fall. These are new ones.
They are using MP-44s so they can't be Confederate Americans, although they do have the same flag (differing colours)
I think Confederate Germans is the only conclusion- but that's ridiculous... focus more on improving the existing factions instead of making a pointless one.
No, they are not Confederate Germans. That would be extremely absurd. However, if you were rising up against your government, who would you ask for armaments from? Its enemy. Besides, their units will actually not have any standard issue armaments, this was just a quick demonstration. Furthermore, I called them a Bonus and already said that I'm putting them aside until after the rest of the mod is complete. For more info, read my response to pericanet.
lol the confederates are fighting for the enemy ahhhhhh
this mod is getting weird
Confederates fighting for Germany? Haha why rebel to submit your loyalty to another place?
Who says they are submitting their loyalty to Germany? That would be like saying that the American Colonists were submitting to French authority just because they asked the French government for extensive assistance in the War for Independence, which they did receive. In the first Civil War, the Confederates asked for help from France and Britain, but did not receive it. Simply put, the Confederates aren't fighting for Germany, they just happen to have a reason to side with them for the moment, and Germany sees no reason to not support them.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend
Guys the maus is balanced as it is bigger and slower than any other tank, plus, the Allies can simply disable the tracks and pwn it.
So the confederates are sort of Germany's attempt of waging a proxy war against the USA? Smart, bears a good relation of what happened all through the cold war, and the Spanish Civil war.
Btw how will the Maus work with the Other armored vehicle in game? Will it play out a lot like the king tiger from vCoh? Slow, beastly but easily flanked?
Also WWI, they tried to arm the Mexicans against the US.
Well by guess if it was realistic it would be sort of useless in the close maps of CoH, it weights about 100 tonnes so would be slow and it's turret is also slow.
These mauses will kill all the enemies without getting hurt,128mm main gun and 188 tons,I play the maus on NHC mod and its unstoppable.
But a better idea for a moster is Landkreuzer P.Ratte
