Hello all,

I am doing preliminary work on an extensive mod based on 1.02. This has the ability to mod the platoon files. What I am doing is modding the CS game (Rising sun platform for a civil war mod).

Rework the Japanese to the CSA
keeping the US as Union
* will have international Brigades
* will have British siding with Union or CSA as the Dynamic game progrsses
* Will have a comprehensive artillery structure based on the CS engine
* Will add Horse Artillery, Coastal Guns, Gun Boats, Supply Trains, Scouts, Balloon Corps
* Will remap OOB to reflect actual CW OOB through the war.
* Will put in place strategic type map that when opposing forces meet it will trigger the CS Engine
* Extensive rework of base, icons etc.
* Map editing using CS to recreate better battles then the BG series (That is one flaw for the BG is that there is no map editing to speak of)

* Looking an extending the war to include technology advances, Improved Gatling Guns, Artillery and Tactics.
* Raider units on the Strategic side side when raiding a town will kick in the CS engine to produce a small scale engagement.

these are just some of the things I will be working on....is there any interest in this mod before I motor on

Marc

Good of you to do a mod but.....John Tiller's Battleground Civil war, Hello!!!!

Seriously, you dont need to make a mod.

If you want other battles besides the 5 JTBG:CW has then you can always go to HPS.

There is plenty of Civil war love with the John Tiller feel.

true but it does have some failing aspects....the map editing ability #1...it is difficult to create scenarios for lets say The Battle of Muscle Shoals, Alabama using the Shiloh Map....Besides there is more possibilities with the CS Engine then the BG Engine...for example the Balloon aspect...same as recon flights. The offshore artillery for lets say the invasion of New Orleans, The Swamp effects from RS for the Battles of Florida,,,,Also what gave me this idea was the OZ3 meets CS... A strategic level map then initiates battles...great concept...any thanks for your support Jason...By the way on the Gatlin Gun..I am using the 30 cal MMG for this...changed the graphics...using the same UPXXXX but utilizing different graphics...been a ehile since I modded the Platoon files but it is fun...

The problem I think you'll run into with this conversion (potentially) is unit formations. So you'd have limbered and unlimbered for artillery. You'll have column and line for infantry. You'll have mounted and unmounted for cavalry.

Best of luck because I'd love a Civil War game with a map editor!!! Just wanted to get your thoughts on work arounds for those particular issues.

I wonder why people have a proble, with modding something for their own enjoyment...Osprey if I wanted to purchase HPS I would have done so...I like the mechanics of CS...mix that with a civil war motif and you got a ton of battles....i am modding to pre 1.03 so I can use the Platoon editor

I wasn't trying to sound mean, barker.You took it the wrong way.

I don't have a problem with you making a mod, infact I never had a problem but if you want me to have a problem with you, well....
