[HoI2] Experience of WWII Mod

Mehr
11 Jahre 3 Monate her - 11 Jahre 2 Monate her #1 von Fernando Torres
Hi all, i'm glad to present you the Experience of WWII mod.

The mods goals are to improve challenge, realism and historical feeling. AI, events, musics and sounds, graphics, combat system etc : the whole game was modified to give you a sight of what was the real WW2.
Expect to see real DDays, to never beat SU, to be incircled by the AI etc.
All suggestions/criticizes/propositions are welcomed, so we will be able to improve the mod. It was created by me 5 months ago.
Many guys on the french forum ans on the pdox forum played their hardest and most realistics games with this mod since the 0.1 is out. I hope you'll enjoy it too.
If you have any question, just ask.

Download v1.0 : ftp://ftp.jeux-strategie.com/strategium ... C_v1.0.exe

Patch for Arma players : ftp://ftp.jeux-strategie.com/strategium/Mod_GC/arma.rar

Screenshots : http://forum.jeux-strategie.com/index.p ... opic=53906

Installation :

Copy the files of the root of DD 1.3 a or Arma 1.1 toward a new folder "Mod EWWII" then download the mod that you will install in that folder.
If you play with Arma, download the Arma patch and install it.
Check that you have the good version (PNID). Please read attentively all the events, especially the "Rules event".

It is recommended playing with normal difficulty for a first game.


They said about the mod :

"Well just to continue my experience with this AI, the soviets were attacked by me on the 1st of June 1941, they use a real defence in depth strategy, meaning I could overrun easily western ukraine, but eventuall I've been stopped at the dnepr line on the south and jegapils on the northern flank.
Its mid july now and the first steam of my offensive is out, now I have to regroup and somehow cross the dnepr.
Really impressive."
(Jadam)

"I played my first game as USSR and I was actually afraid that the Germans would beat me. They launched a very effective attack down from Norway/Finland and twice had Moscow surrounded. The Italy AI did a good job with landings at Suez before the Brits could drive them out. America AI had 3 landings in France driven back, but they managed to invade Japan’s home islands which really impressed me. I really enjoyed the game." (HogansHeros)

"Wow, I'm impressed again, look what just did the AI:A landing with 12 divs in greece. That's what I call a nice amphibious operation, that really worth attention. Now at least I have some motivation to secure north africa..." (Jadam)

"Fernando Torres I am very impressed right now with this mod. I haven't found any bugs so far playing as the U.S. I love this mod. Now I still have yet to go in to war and try the new battle system. Overall I believe this mod is the has the most realistic outcome then any other mod. Great Job." (Peartboy99)

"And you're right about the German thing, I loaded up as Germany with an autosave I had and found out that the Germans had about 12-17 divisions (Mostly mot and arm) surrounded heading in the direction toward Stalingrad, which made a relatively weak line in the front. I didn't know the Soviets could counterattack so well in the winter!" (Hawk 354)

"I cant invade in low countries easily. I get bogged down in belgium." (JFeatherston)

"You must strike hard and act swiftly as it was the case IRL. Else the same WW1 style stalemate happens. And it is how it should be.
Simply you need more planning and serious force-concentration to penetrate the enemy's frontline (with coordinated airforce ofc) then you must exploit the gap and let your mechanized forces encircle the enemy."
(Jadam)

"Jadam is correct, as a beta tester for 1.0 you need way more coordination and planning for the low countries then ever before." (Black Lotus)

"AI is really clever compared to the vanilla version, as germany I did not pay enough attention to the invasion of france and a reversed dunquerqe happened to 20+of my divisions...
Really impressive"
(Jadam)

The navigationmap looks very good.

What they said about the AI is very interesting.

The actually version change only the Event- and AI Files, is that right?

So if some guys want to give a help, as modder or officiel tester i'd be pleased.

Ya' know Fernando, it looks very, very good.

I know nothing about Modding, but I'd be willi ng to playtest for you and I'm certain many others would as well.

My question is: many of us here all have the DMP .gfx and such, so your new work will probably overwrite everything, correct?

It will but you can install that mod and overwrite its gfx with DMP if you want.

Now i'm trying to regroup a solid team to continue the project on several forums. If you want to help but can't mod this is not a problem, we'll also need official testers, graphist or historical advisers.
PM me if you are interested. helmi_joint
