Spanish Civil war Skirmish Mod v1.1

Post by Paul59 » Mon Jan 06, 2020 9:43 pm

This mod allows historical Skirmish battles to be generated between Republican and Nationalist forces of the Spanish Civil War between 1936 and 1939. The Nationalist side also includes Italian units that were deployed to Spain with the CTV (Corpo Truppe Volontarie).

Thanks to Tim1966 for the German 77mm Gun model, which I have used for the 75mm Field Guns.

Aircraft are vanilla BA2 types (retextured in SCW colours), fortunately I was able to select appropriate types for the Spanish Civil War. The only major piece of modding here was making a Republican fighter I-15 from the Ground Attack I-15!

How to install

This mod is now available to download from within the game using the Download Community Scenarios button.


How to use

Open BA2 and select "Skirmish" from the main menu. Click the "Advanced" button in the middle of the screen. Click "Use Default Data" in the bottom right of the screen. This will bring up a list of campaigns and mods that you have installed, so select "Spanish Civil War Skirmish". Then just select your Skirmish preferences in the normal way and click "Create".

The mod includes a new SPAIN terrain package, that should be selected in the Skirmish Generator before creating a scenario. This has been done my adding a lot of Sicilian terrain objects from BA1, and I have edited some of the terrain generation scripts to replace the Russian Marsh with Spanish Rough terrain and increase the number of hills. If you use the Wilderness terrain maps, I suggest that you turn the Openness up to 90% plus, so that you get small areas of Forest and more areas of Rough.

enjoy!

Nice work Paul..:)
I'm not a SCW expert, so I compiled this chart of the infantry units Base Morale to help me see troop quality at a glance ..:)
I've also marked the SMG-armed units (range 3). Standard infantry is rifle-armed (range 4).
(ignore all the numbers in brackets, they're simply the editor reference numbers)

Hi!

Spanish Civil War Modder from Order of Battle writing here!

I don't play Battle Academy but I just wanted to congratulate the author for the mod. The visual elements, both miniatures and 3d models, are fantastic, while the complete list of charismatic units from the conflict seems quite impressive and comprehensive ... Overall the caps looks great!

Kudos to you, good sir!

A new version of this mod is now available for download within the game using the Download Community Scenarios button.

I have, therefore, deleted the Mediafire link for the old version in the first post of this thread.

Changes in version 1.1:

Slightly improved Trench textures.

Added Rico's Simancas, Jarama, Teruel scenarios. Many thanks to Rico for these!
