German Grand Campaign as Italians

Post by WarHomer » Thu Jun 27, 2019 11:50 am

Are there a simple way to create a mod that would let me play BK, PK and ES with the Italians instead of the Germans? Same CP and RP´s.

For it to be fun there would have to be a way to get the Italian heroes, but it would be ok if they were just unlocked from mission 1, and it would also be necessary to be able to carry-over.

I think it might pose a fun challenge, but have no experience with modding.

This would require to change all scenarios to add Italy as playable and assign CP and RP for Italians.

It would include significant scripting changes (or at least a lot of checking) to ensure all triggers, most notably objectives do work for Ita, though for some it might be enough if Ita shares the same alliance as Ger.

Commanders would need extra scripting to give them (instead of or additionally to) German cmdrs. So overall not a small task.

That´s too bad, It could have been fun if there was an easy way to change nations.

2 remarks :
- I haven’t updated the latest version of the game ( 7.1.8 ) to the units.csv file
- all commanders are German for the Italian faction which replaces the German faction

Incredible work, just what I was looking for!!!

1) was it hard to do, and could you make it with any other nation, ie the Americans?

2) Is there any way to add the Italian heroes? Maybe some cheat?

1) It wasn’t that hard, but there are a few things to know.
I thought about the Americans but it would have been really weird. However, I find the idea with the Japanese much better: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 74&t=87994

2) I think it would be possible to replace German Commanders with Italian Commanders but I do not know the Italian army well :?

Thank you very much. I´m at Barbarossa with all Italian units now and cant wait till I get further along.

Is the Jap mod all jap (plus SS) like the Italian mod?

Yes exactly the same principle but more choice of units with Japanese.
