Maitrebongo- played the "the first probe" the briefing mentions Soviet Guards and Americans but the side choices have Soviet Guards and German SS. the units on the map are Americans and Soviet Guards
This is because there is a limitation on the number of different nationalities.
The Americans take the place of the German SS and the French of the Romanians of the original game.
I think I will use the nationalities Custom 1 and Custom 2 for Americans and French, but I would still have to use nationalities of the original game for the English and the Argentines.
In the background, it does not change the game ...
Probably not possible due to the different map (squares vs hexes) but I'd *love* to see a mod for Day of Heroes! Could it be possible perhaps?
I already have a mod start for Day of Heroes.
It is a little harder to adapt the specific rules of this period, but by making some compromises, it should be able to arrange.
As for the maps, the solution is to redraw them but on a hexagonal map. Either from scratch or by tapping into the tactical wargame maps graphics that I have been collecting for years (I have about 400 of them, including the magnificent maps of the Close Combat game series including the Close Combat Road to Baghdad , Close Combat Marines and Close Combat Modern Tactics that contain maps that could fit perfectly for this kind of theatre of operations).
Thanks to the others for your encouragement, but I would like to point out that part of my work is based on the work of other modders.
I'm just trying to put things in order.
