This work is the continuous "WW2 LandPack 1.0", but more powerful for editing extremists, and it should work pretty well.
If you are not extremists and/or perfectionists, do not download it. :mrgreen:

MDM 2.1 (massive destruction mod 2.0) 20/06/2012

-various improvements
new bridges
in layerstation:
-6 New station
-25 new suburbs
-6 barraks
-9 new villages
-1 new factory
in layerterrain:
-1 castel
-3 new monumental hexe
-capital city improvements
-15 wooded montains

to install this MOD copy the files in the folder:
...\Panzer Corps \Graphics \Tiles
is very recommended to use the GME (Generic Mod Enabler)

this way you will have the opportunity to extend the potential of panzercorps.
You can create scenarios with a greater level of detail, but with greater difficulty in placing the new tiles.
be careful when you create a map
1) draw a base map and save it.
2) when you're really sure, generate a map and start to change the tiles with the ones you like.
remember there is no undo!


have fun

I commented on the other thread, but let me say this is really really a great thing to have and we are very much full of gratitude to Massi Destruction. This is one mod that I cannot imagine playing the game without. I am also sure there are Panzer Corps fans of the future who will discover this wonderful mod and others one day and find all the great things they can do with this fantastic game.

Massi has set a new standard for exciting maps and strategic realistic play variables because without his mods, those sorts of things would not be possible. If you ask me, Massi ought to be recruited to make the new map tiles for the upcoming Afrika Korps DLC.

A heartfelt thank you for all the hours spent for such excellent work - and for sharing it freely with us. In being only a minor modder but more of a map and campaign maker it'll greatly help to improve my work.

These look great, Massi. Thanks for the effort and time that has gone into producing them. Not to be negative I have a couple of comments:

- there doesn't seem to be a winter road set. When the winter tile set is used everything is white/snow except the roads. The roads also look a bit too wide when they connect to the roads in villages/cities etc.

- some of the stations should really be units. E.g. the coastal forts, and perhaps the tank traps. If engineers are to destroy the tank traps they have to be units. If the coastal forts are to fire they have to be units.

For purely cosmetic maps and features, this last observation is not relevant but in most cases the reason for the forts, mines, tank traps etc is to provide obstacles that can be removed by the player.

Re units it would be quite some additional work, but one could even make the fort etc. a unit, then place a terrain hex showing the destroyed fort below the unit, exactly at the same spot, with the same size (probably a bit fiddling needed to get it right).

In this way you'd have the destroyed gfx appear once the player took out the unit above. As said, just an idea, Massi has already done lots for us, but maybe it gives someone an idea...;)

Thanks to all my friends!
you're right El_Condoro
Some tiles have been better if they were units, but I am a land modderd and I never created units. bebro will help me for this :D !
true bebro to help me make the units of: costal forts, bunkers and new? :D :D if you want, it would be very nice
for tank traps you can use them as rivers, for now .. then with the next patch I will be sure a more complete version.
at the end, this big mod is very beta for now :oops: .
I still am open to collaborations with other mods for a package of very large mod, if someone wants.

It's excellent, massi. The things I have pointed out are minor compared to the overall product, which adds so much to the modder's arsenal. The things that could be units can be made so fairly easily, I think - just put them on a transparent alpha layer. Bebro's idea of a ruined version underneath the unit is great and could be extended to a number of structures.

a small variation

the anti-tank ditches work well

Image

I did a test, and I turn the gun turret :D
Image

I found a way to map.
1) I create the base map.
2) when I'm really sure I click on the generated tiles.
3) start working with the new graphics (gfx) and complete as I want
4) insert view strings
5) select the basic terrain tiles at left, but keep it on video the GFX on right.
6) select the tiles that I have escaped with the gfx (every time I press the space bar)
8) validated scene and play

I hope I explained myself. works well maybe I'll do some screenshots.
mapping is so much easier.

a question, the bocage blocks movement of the tanks???

There are so many good tiles and layers in this new mod, it's difficult even to pick favorites.

If someone wanted to get a bit silly with the gun turrets they could make say 6 units pointing to each side of the hex and use the switch function to rotate the turret! :) I wouldn't waste my time but it can be done.

I have been working on some of my Ukraine maps and I want to say that a person can make a map that is virtually identical to a view from an airplane with the new hexes. The villages, scattered tree lines, crops and fields are just fantastic. Thank you again Massi. It is going to take me a long time to rework my maps, but I don't mind because when they are done, they will look like an aerial photo in color. A real joy to play on Panzer Corps. IF Lordz and Slitherine would utilize even a small portion of these new tiles, the future maps would look just outstanding. And IF they would work with you to do some tiles and terrain for Afrika Korps DLC, it will bring the play and visual level up to a much higher level.
