Battle of Caen - Anglo-German Battle of Normandy (Help and test player needed)

Post by shermanVC » Fri May 31, 2019 1:31 pm

Hey, chips, this is my first project, and it is also the first for my "Normandy" plan.

The campaign is based on Battle for Caen: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_for_Caen

It is a Campaign for both Allied and Axis, I will finish the Anglo-Canadian campaign first and then work on the German part of Battle of Caen.

After finish the Battle of Caen Campaign, I will then do the US-German Battle of Normandy Campaign and finally the SAS-French undergrounds Special missions in Normandy. This is my current Battle of Normandy Plan.

Now I m working on the campaign, not huge progress, but I m working on it almost every day. I do not understand how to create new 3d models, so I used some models from Amaris, here is a special thanks to him. I also used some models from BA2. And some textures from other games. I do not own them, I just used them because they are cool and great. I had permission from Amaris to use his models and textures, so here is my thanks to him again. He also helped me with the problems of the script.

I already finished two missions, and there is another one coming soon. Hope people can help me with the project, need 3d modelers and players who can test the missions.

This is just a preview of my progress
Leave comments if you are interested

Some German infantry:

Left: Waffen SS Middle: Panzergrnadier Right: Sturmgrenadier, both Panzergrenadier and Sturmgrenadier are armed with "Panzerfaust", their ap range is 2 instead of 1. So be careful when you move up your armor, some infantry may destroy your armors in a distance.

Some Textures for Allied Vehicles:

I made some new texture for these vehicles so it looks more anglo than the yank boys. The M36 model is used as British Achilles tank destroyer. And the m3 scout car is from Amaris. Most of the skin is based on the game "Steel Division Normandy 44". The Bishop SPG is not used in the Normandy Campaign (it is too old), but I use it as the mobile 25pdr SPG role, same as the Canadian Sexton. Because I do not have models for Sexton, I made a skin for Bishop to make it fit for the battlefield.

Some British Infantry:

Bunch of British Commando, the green beret with the Garand rifles are the No.6 Commando, the Sten one is normal Commando, the black beret is the No.30 Assault units scout, the lmg is Vickers K, the camo SMG is royal marine, and the scoped rifle is the sniper. No new models, I just made textures for the old models.

One thing I feel pity about BBCBA is the limitation of different things. For example, the maximum unit type is 128, the max number of units can be deployed is 64, the map size is 64x64.
Not a joke, if the game can have a larger limitation, I can turn it a turn-based steel division game. The player can fight in different missions, some of them will have the size of a company, some of them may go to brigade level.

Here is some part of the intro for the mission "Oden River":

This is really damn cool, although it may waste players' time when they already saw it several times.

ShermanVC that is fantastic. We need Caen!
Nice pictures and battle briefing sounds realistic and fun.
Don't worry about the unit limit. It is annoying, but you can make the game more focused on smaller combat and still make a realistic Caen battle.
I like having SS units and the traditional German defense in the bocage against the powerful allied tank & infantry assaults.
