Tejszd -> Meuse Mod v3.5 For TLD/WAR - Released (4/29/2012 8:38:09 PM)

BACKGROUND:

The original mod team for Meuse Crossing consisted of Luer and Moloch who worked on this CC5 mod from January to May 2001. Luer was responsible for the data changes, with a bit of graphics and historic research, while Moloch handled the rest. The mod was last updated by original mod team in November 2001 with version 2.0 being released.

Both mod makers names have appeared together and individually on others mods; Afrika mod for CC3, Winter War for CC4, Finland Mod for CC3, PanzerJager mod for CC3, Real Romanians for CC3, etc. . Unfortunately the constraints of real life and time maybe taking away some of the enthusiasm for CC have made these two mod makers less active the last couple of years…. To the mod team, thank you for breaking new ground with this mod (the first for CC5) and all the extra hours of game play you added!

As a fan of CC and their mod, I asked them if I could address some of the issues that existed with the last version they did v2.0 and got the okay to keep updating the mod. I have made several releases/updates to the mod for CC5 before working to convert the mod to TLD/WAR.

The conversion to TLD/WAR involved fixing past data/graphic issues that still persisted, taking advantage of the new features and replacing all the original CC5 maps that were used in the mod. This work has now been completed.

A big thanks to Cathartes, Nembo, Mafi and Shrecken for the help, testing and tools. While An extra special thanks to Q.M and Southerland who worked to replace all the CC5 maps previously used by the mod!

Here is a link to AAR to read while we await the anniversary of the May 10 attack in the west;

Note: work is in progress on moving from 44 to 64 map strategic layer but that will most likely be a Christmas present

looks utterly fantastic Tejszd...and just in time for my birthday.[8D]




davidss -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/2/2012 8:31:12 AM)

wow ... thanks Tejszd and company




Cathartes -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/4/2012 12:46:37 AM)

Excellent. This mod is quite challenging and a very polished affair. Better than handcrafted beer, but goes great with it.

Thank you for the endless hours you put into this legacy.




Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/5/2012 1:59:55 AM)

Your welcome!

Must admit Southernland is the one who got me motivated again with all the great maps he made for the mod and I owe it to him to get them out there....




CarolusRex -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/5/2012 4:22:10 PM)

Hi Tejzd,

Is Feldwebel Walter Rubarth and his pluton part of the game? (2. Kompanie des Pionier-Bataillons 49 (mot.) der 10. Panzerdivision.)?

As you probably know this guy and his pluton was the first of the 10 Pz to get accross, knocked out 7 bunkers and started the panic that eventually led to the german miracle at Sedan.

When the panic started some hours later 20 000 French fled for the approaching panzers that in reality was yet 11 hours to pass the river!

Its said that the 8 km deep built out bunker system would take causulties in the range of 500 000 to take if properly defended. Now the causalties was aprox 500!

Looking forward.

Rgds

Carolus




Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/5/2012 4:51:05 PM)

With the scale of the battle/game the Company and even the 49th Engineer Battalion are not individual BG's but the 86 Rifle Regiment they were assigned to is. The 10Pz Div in the mod is divided into two BG's the 69 and 86 for the Infantry regiments with the 7th panzer regiment split between the two.

If/when the mod gets moved to LSA there is an opportunity to have smaller units represented as it allows BG's to be stacked in a single strat map location.




CarolusRex -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/5/2012 6:23:18 PM)

Do understand but it would be fun if there where a feldvebel named Walter Rubarth.

Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/5/2012 8:36:24 PM)

Okay I have added the last name to the GEnames.txt file. Can't guarantee he will be assigned to the 10th Panzer division but he is in there now....




Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/10/2012 5:03:40 AM)

Just waiting to get instructions on how to get the mod file added to the CCTLD website....

Thanks Tejszd.
Never played Meuse before,so should be oodles of fun.




Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/17/2012 1:38:36 AM)

Thank you for taking the time to post! I appreciate comments and hope you all are enjoying playing the mod....




TAIL_GUNNER -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/17/2012 2:42:03 AM)

Forgot to mention the maps are beautiful...kudos to Southern_land and Q.M.[&o]


But I forgot how much I hate the mechanics of the TLD engine....BGs that pass through each other really tick me off....[:@]




tigercub -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/18/2012 3:43:19 PM)

thx boys for the hard work...i will be playing tomorrow!

Tiger




tigercub -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/23/2012 9:52:52 AM)

feed back

I have to say well done...having a Blast of a time very solid mod! did have air craft crash! on one of the first maps...the french troops are a little on the strong side...

but very well done thx again for the hard work!




Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (5/23/2012 3:07:39 PM)

Thanks for the feedback tigercub!

The French cavalry BG's sent forward to delay the Germans are good BG's. Behind them you'll run into the French infantry BG's which are easier. Then a bit later you'll have some tougher BG's trying to counter attack. If you checkout my Meuse AAR my German loses are high but I'm doing better than the Germans did historically for the ground covered for the timeframe...

Also note that the side level in the mod affects the forces more than in the past as squad experience, morale, quantities and support all go up and down....





tigercub -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (6/1/2012 1:28:23 PM)

more aircraft crashers!




Southern_land -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (6/2/2012 3:46:29 AM)

thats weird, haven't had a single crash attributable to airstrikes




Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (6/2/2012 4:07:25 AM)

Haven't seen any crashes either.... Are the air crashes only for one side? Is it a specific plane?

What is your OS?
Video card? Driver?




tigercub -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (6/2/2012 5:53:45 AM)

windows 7 updated...Nvidia geforce GTS 450 latest driver

french plane both times...




Tejszd -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (6/2/2012 8:33:13 AM)

Are you playing the French then? If so do you remember which plane(s)?

I'm running
OS: Win7 64bit
Video card: Nvidia GTS 450 Driver: v285.62

I'm not using compatibility mode for any of the CC TLD exe files, can you check yours?





tigercub -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (6/2/2012 3:59:26 PM)

we are playing both side same time so we now how blanced it is...

ill check

windows is 32 bit...




CarolusRex -> RE: Meuse Mod For TLD/WAR - Coming Soon (6/9/2012 8:29:26 AM)

I have almost played through the grand campaign as the Germans with no crashes (a very nice mod Tejszd - thx!). I have a similar set up as Tejszd.

I can add that I cant play any of the mods released by Daklegion so I guess mods can be pretty sensetive to the exact OS and hardware configuration?
