Yes..........I started making things but didn't tried it out in the game. I also just find out that the color of the crew has to much difference with the color of German soldiers. Brightness reduction, as you tried is a solution. I can do two things.

* Make the crew -20 brightness and make everything over again
* Make al units including the guns -20 brightness but the guns maybe to dark then?

I am going to work on this. I'll be back on this issue.

Now the last units who were finished in the old color

Hello phcas I think it's ok, but everyone has to decide for themselves. ;-)

I remember that a long time ago, someone was working on modifying panzer corps with crews, I think it's called H.Balck , but it seems to me that he had problems and all his work was eliminated, if someone still has some mod, it would be great because you can use his concept to improve what is being done here.

Oke it's clear. I think it's not acceptable to make the brightness of the guns -20. The crews must be -20 I agree. Good point, crews look much better in -20.

So.........I am going to replace the crews in my graphics by -20 crews but keep the guns in the brightness like they are now. I make a few ingame tests and than I will start remaking the graphics.

I'm impressed; not just with the new icons but with the co-operation of all involved. Well done, gentlemen!

Yes, I know the work of H.Balck, he had MOD's in the past.

He was using units in a different style with a different color. This units do not match with the style in the game I think. I stil have some of his units. The gun crews he is using can maybe useful but they are so tiny next to the AKRebels crew.

An other idea is to make crews out of existing Panzer Corps Soldiers. The color will match exactly than. If we make them 90% of their size they will have the size about the AKRebels crews. This will fix the color different problem also for allied crews in the future. But this units have to be made and are still different to the AKRebels units.

I made a little test. In top a crew of H.Balck. I think this crew is to small. Than in the middle the AKRebels crew (I like most). In the bottom Panzer Corps soldiers made crew (90%).



A question for AKRebels. Do you have more German crew? How do you make them or where do you get them from?

I think that also lennis29. Still I made an other test made from PC soldiers 90%. I think they are acceptable like this. Notice the up looking crew in AA position.

Hello guille1434. Thanks. I see the point. :( Most important is the fact that we agree that guns with crews can be very nice if they are made well.

So for the AKRebels units we made them darker now (-20%) and you made them thinner now. Will this be all or does someone has still other ideas or wishes? If we all agree I can start making the final serie.

Second question is if there is any need by people to have the Panzer Corps style gun crews. Now I make both versions. The Panzer Corps style gives no color problems. This color problem will be an issue for future crews of other nations if we use other units than Panzer Corps Style.

Still send the latest units I made (leFH18). I stop now and wait for the awnsers on the questions above.

Greetings PHCAS
