thnx...
regarding the units...sry..no unit packs upfront..they are unique and the mini insignias are hell lot of work so I dont really like the idea to see them crossposted all over the net long before release. After all the work I want these units to be inextricably linked with PanzerCorps East...
So they have to debut with the mod Iam afraid... :wink: ...
later people are free to use them as they please as long as they credit me and the skin makers/artists in case they going to incooporate them into release mods

No idea...this is a one man project and I still have a few truckloads of work to do...
What I do know though is that stuff that is hastily cobbled together usually turns out to be utter crap.
So tomorrow I start merging the new Africa terrain layers with Massis new tiles and start reworking the map...
I will build this monster with patience cause I hate doin things twice and I hate bugfixing so I will make sure
highest quality before making it public. I think this is in everybodys interest as a campaign can be pretty time consuming and
it would be a pity it would get ruined half way thru cause of gamebreaking bugs, would it ? :wink:

Now that you say it. :lol:
I had a 512MB GPU and the StratMap always stayed black when I tested the map...
then I upgraded to a 1GB GPU and voila...the StratMap displayed.
Dont know if this was seriously the reason..my old GPU had some issues thats why I replaced it but it gave me some thought :mrgreen:

___________________________Update 05.08.2012______________________________

After playing around and running some tests with the Generic Mod enabler I found that its a lot of hassle for the PC illiterate user
because Panzercorps East will be a deep mod with a lot of changes to UI, Graphics and most other folders in the game.
This would require installation in the MyDocuments/My Games/PanzerCorps/Mods root AND the JSGME MOD folder in the game folder.
This is a lot of user action and very unhandy. Its most unfortunate that the ingame mod support is not deep enough in order to make the exe always read and load Modfolder files first and then load the remaining files needed from the game folder.

I therefore decided to make a new build and provide a complete PanzerCorps East folder like DMP has done with Winter War and their other PanzerCorpss derivations.

This seems the most user friendly approach to me and gives me entire freedom in design.

_______________________UPDATE 06.8.2012______________________

Trying to make the new Africa graphics suitable for using with muddy and frozen ground...
In deep Russia there were some desert areas and some nice overlays came with Africa too so it would be a shame to skip them.
And I want these new transition areas from green to desert.

The graphics designer working for PzC was quite lazy.....he could have rendered muddy and frozen in one go.
Right now if you use muddy or frozen weather in Africa scenarios the map becomes black when muddy or frozen ground is to be displayed.
Not so much of a problem for the Arika campaign but an annoying issue when using the terrain for other desertish areas which had muddy and frozen ground

Its quite a lot of fiddling around to reproduce the same color setting in order to achieve a smooth and undetectable transition but I think its looking promising right now...
