I've enjoyed your 1938 Calm Before the Storm mod since it first came out in SC2, it's the only way I enjoy playing the game so I was thrilled when I saw you put it out for SC3. Many thanks for that, you've done superb work.
I have one question though as I've got a problem with the unit sprites - and I don't have it with any of the standard SC3 campaigns or scenarios. When I load your mod - in either the editor or the game - many of the 3d units are not visible, just their round bases. They show up just fine as Nato counters though. If I look at the Franco-German border at game start, about half the units are displayed as round bases. If I turn the bases off, then there is just some text for the unit. It is not just that area of the map, the Italians units have the same problem in North Africa, as do others.
Have I installed something wrong? I've tried extracting the files with both WinRar and 7Zip (the latter seemed to give a better result - the editor no longer tells me that convoy scripts are missing when I open the campaign). I have also tried installing as a user campaign and directly to the game's campaign folder, but with the same result. Any thoughts on what could be causing this? I'm bummed, was looking forward to this awesome mod so I could get back to SC3!
Below is a jpeg of what I'm seeing. My graphics drivers are up to date and I'm running an alienware laptop with good processing power and a graphics card with 4 gigs of ram on it. I appreciate you help on this and thanks again for this excellent mod.
