    I can't get the mod to work right

    When I open up the tech tab, I can see a Axis, Allies, and Komintern, But I can't click the Axis one as Germany. Also the new brigades have no icons, just an 'x' by the name.

    I'm playing SF 2.03.

    well worth the little blue coins (i'd scoffed at the silly things until now) good work, I'll buy any more updates.

  4. #164
    I very much like this mod. I am looking forward to the update.

    However, even right now NG are better than normal infantry when on the defense, and use half the supplies/officers of normal infantry, which might be useful as leadership strapped nations that spend a lot of time on the defensive like say France or the USSR. It would also be really cool if the national guard forces of the US were represented in the starting GC scenario- this shouldnt be that hard to research compared to all the crazy deployments that happen in later scenarios and give the US a much needed boost to starting divisions.

    The bigger question is why would a german player use normal infantry when he can build SS Infantry, given that they have higher starting morale and the axis land doctrine boosts it even further. The SS infantry now have double the morale of normal infantry in my game and its only 1939. It's going to be hard for anyone to stand against germany when their infantry regains org twice as fast as everyone else.
    I see your points and will change that.

    AI won't build the new units so I don't want them to waste LS in research. And even if I make the scripts for the AI to build the units, it won't be able to use them correctly.

    This is a player only DLC.

    --edit : nevermind, I'll let the AI research the new techs since some of them aren't about units but about bonuses.

    Good changes regarding the national guards.

    But I still feel that the technology should be reversed and national guards should use militia branch while garrisons the infantry line. After all (AFAIK) historically national guards were more of a militia then regular army.
    "'Religious faith. Belief in daemons, belief in spirits, belief in an afterlife and all the other trappings of a preternatural existence, simply existed to make us all more comfortable and content in the face of a measureless cosmos. They were sops, bolsters for the soul, crutches for the intellect, prayers and lucky charms to help us through the darkness. But we have witnessed the cosmos now, my friends. We have passed amongst it. We have learned and understood the fabric of reality. We have seen the stars from behind, and found they have no clockwork mechanisms, no golden chariots carrying them abroad. We have realized there is no need for god, or any gods, and by extension no use any longer for daemons or devils or spirits."

    I will start working on a patch after the next week I think, you can tell me what is missing, what is unbalanced and what is not working and I'll consider it.
    Its great!

    Three things i would like to see:

    1. Names for the units (with deletion of some of the former names to avoid regular units being called "elite" names) - PS - would love to help with this if you need it

    2. Ability to upgrade those units that make sense to upgrade

    3. Have only tried out the german units so far - adding SS CAV&MTN and also support units would be good. I assume this would be good for some of the other nations special units aswell - but I haven't had the time to go through them properly

    EDIT: Just saw your answer DD - oops. But nice to that most of my points where already in there

    Once again: Good Job!
    A patch is always late!

    MTB and Convoy Raiders

    MTB get slaughtered in the game They should be hard to hit and a serious threat in large numbers, but I don't think the combat system can handle these. Too bad, good idea.

    The AI doesn't know what to do with the convoy raiders - can they be made a type of submarine?

    The ranges don't seem to matter, I've seen MTB grouped with capital ships and sent on long trips, and the AI doesn't take advantage of long range of convoy raiders

    I finally got it to work by making a clean install. It looks great!

    SS and light infantry

    I like these units. The SS should have foreign legion units for their Freiwillige voluteers, and cavalry.

    It makes sense to restrict SS to Germany and the West because of their supply consumption and high manpower needs that would otherwise get attrited. Light units can fight the Russians without straining the supply system.

    Do infantry tech upgrades increase the supply usage of light infantry?

    Germany should have a '44 infantry division:

    On Gamers Gate every time you buy stuff and (I think) you do reviews or similar activities you can earn credit in the form of blue coins. The value is 100 coins = 1$ for us in the states. They can be spent on the web site or in HoI3 in the DLC screen.

    Hey guys, here is the first beta of the patch. It should be stable and in the definitive version but I may have missed some bugs in some place. This is why I ask you to test it and report here. Thanks.

    DOWNLOAD :
    Common Weapons of WWII - Patch 1.01 beta (thanks to derkb to provide me the server)

    INSTALLATION :
    Make a backup of your \mod\common_weapons_of_WWII\ folder (simply copy it and paste it in another location).
    Extract the patch in your \mod\common_weapons_of_WWII\ folder and overwrite the files.

    Don't apply the patch if you are not confident with computers, wait for the finale patch instead.
