[WISH] Modern Mod

Post by MikeAP » Sun Aug 02, 2020 2:25 pm

I'd love to see a modern conflict mod with the BA2 game engine.

More specifically, I think the BA2 engine would be great with a focus on low intensity conflict: Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Eastern Ukraine, etc..

Is there anyone out there that is interested in seeing modern conflicts?

I would be happy even with something fictional.

I agree 100% about wanting modern conflicts but I'm not a modder and don't have a clue about creating them.
The only post-WW2 BA2 mods I've heard of are Paul59's 'Cold War' skirmish mod which is USA vs Russia just after WW2-

and Rico's 'Indochina' scenarios of the 1950's-

I remember reading about some work with missile projectiles on the BA1(?) form. Talks of a modern mod started and then fell through once Amris and Enric left.

It would be interesting, but I feel like it would be kinda hard to mod in stuff like helicopters(unless you used them as the support icon I suppose, much like aircraft are) and anti tank missiles.

On the other hand, I feel like it would be fairly simple to do additional early Cold War scenarios— the British in Malaya, for instance, or 1948 Arab- Israeli War. Perhaps even a Korean War scenario, although I feel like that would be a rather large undertaking with needing to bring in all those Chinese units, not to mention the North and South Koreans.
