PHalen -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/23/2017 4:58:15 PM)

Hey Crispy,
Iíve made some further adjusted German NATO sprites with the following changes implemented:
1. Very slightly adjusted unit color.
2. Army symbols are lighter and Division symbols are darker to make their unit sizes easily distinguishable on the map.
3. All air unit silhouettes have been adjusted to German plane types.
4. All naval unit silhouettes have been adjusted to the German ships.

Please send me you e-mail address and Iíll mail them across. I hope youíll like them!
I personally feel they add flavor to the gaming experience.
I would also appreciate suggestions about how to proceed with all other nations.




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/23/2017 5:02:55 PM)

Thanks Phalen, I would be very interested to see them. I've messaged you my contact info.




PHalen -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/23/2017 5:18:12 PM)

Got it!
Just e-mailed you the files.




roy64 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/28/2017 4:02:32 PM)

I'm having the same problem as pfinch has got with the 1938 Calm Before The Storm2 mod (post 10), some of the 3d units are not visible. Is there a fix for it?




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/29/2017 2:25:08 PM)

This is the first i heard of any such problem.. perhaps Dropbox was having some issues downloading.




roy64 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/29/2017 3:59:14 PM)

This is what it looks like




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/29/2017 4:43:37 PM)

Those empty slots are not used in the mod, so are you changing research limits? That is the only thing I can think of. If you have blank spaces after downloading and playing right away it is something to do with the download itself and not the file which I have uploaded.

I will upload again today just in case though.




roy64 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/29/2017 4:56:06 PM)

No I haven't changed anything, I'm playing as the Germans & I have only seen it with the Russian mechanized. Apparently it is caused by slow download speeds via dropbox so if you upload it again using dropbox there's a good chance it will happen again.




grombit -> RE: Fall Weiss II (7/29/2017 6:05:45 PM)

@roy64

I have same problem about Russian Mechanised.

Are these all isolated incidents? I would like to know if there is a problem with the mod or if this is a dropbox problem. For me everything works well. I will double check though.




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/8/2017 9:24:56 PM)

I have re-uploaded 7.2 for anyone that was having issues with the bitmaps.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/il377ldrrb1bzii/FW7.2.zip?dl=0

Version 8.0 will be released at some point this month based on the changes made in 1.09 by the developers and other balance changes I will be making, including some additional content and updated NATO sprites, building off SIPRES great work.




roy64 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/9/2017 10:59:59 AM)

Still the same problem for me, have you tried to download it yourself, if not try it to see if you get the same problem.




sad ham -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/9/2017 11:18:16 AM)

Just downloaded, and started a new game. Seems it is working fine.




roy64 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/9/2017 3:34:47 PM)

check the unit_sprites.png file in the Major_04\Bitmaps\_Fall Weiss II - 7.2 folder & look at the Russian Mechanised & see if they're all there.




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/9/2017 4:59:02 PM)

Ok Thanks everyone! I think I see the problem, with USSR I forgot that some Level 3 Infantry Tech will require additional 3-D unit sprites. I will fix this tonight!

If there was any other problem with the sprites other than the USSR level 3 3-D unit sprites please let me know.




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/10/2017 2:39:27 AM)

Here is a link to the updated Soviets Unit Bitmaps. You can just replace the contents of Bitmap folder 4 rather than re-downloading the entire scenario. Sorry for the inconvenience.

roy64 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/10/2017 5:27:35 AM)

It's not just the Soviets Unit Bitmaps that are broken all the others apart from the Germans are too.




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II (8/10/2017 10:04:32 AM)

The 3-D sprites are sufficient for this campaign. I am quite sure all of the slots which I use are finished and the units should display correctly under the existing research tree. The Soviet Mech Division was the exception as I later decided to make the unit eligible for infantry weapons 3, when originally I had only sprites for infantry weapons 0-2.




crispy131313 -> Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/11/2017 2:56:09 AM)

I've uploaded Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0

https://www.dropbox.com/s/m8f8h1fifqv197s/FW2%208.0.zip?dl=0

This version is based on the base campaign from 1.08. I will update with changes from 1.09 once the developers finish beta and release the version.

Major changes from Fall Weiss II version 7.2:
- New NATO Sprites created by Phalen, based on the NATO sprites created by Spires. - Thank you both!
- Added some new what if decisions in very specific scenarios
- Tank Divisions are now cheaper to build (175 MPP) and can upgrade to Tanks Level 5
- Mountain Divisions bonuses in mountain terrain have been increased to +2 ground combat, +10% Damage Evasion, +1 Entrenchment and +1 Action Points.
- Added some additional units to the map to start the campaign
- USSR AI will now not surrender unless Baku is also captured
- Added additional scripts to increase German Industry beginning in 1943
- Romanian Oilfield increased to value of 50 MPP
- Invested 1 chit in Naval Warfare (Italy)
- Added Mine To Portugal
- Increase Anti-Air Combat values vs Aircraft
- Added Some Foreign Volunteer Units for Germany (avoiding SS designations)
- Added some additional units for USSR AI on higher levels in 1942 and 1943
- Some other tweaks to scripts, AI research/diplomacy
- Fixed the missing USSR Mech. Division Level 3 3-D Sprite







roy64 -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/11/2017 6:21:42 AM)

Nice one, I'll give it a try in a few days. [sm=duel.gif]




sad ham -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/11/2017 9:17:26 AM)

Hi Crispy, I just started a new game using the latest version. By the way I must honestly say that it is difficult for me to recognize the German and Polish units because their color is too similar and I am colour blind.

Italians too are too similar to Germans.




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/11/2017 11:22:24 AM)

Hi Sad Ham,

You can still use Sipres' original design if the color is more suitable. Simply replace the bitmap folder in the campaign with this one.

sad ham -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/11/2017 12:43:08 PM)

Thanks.




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/11/2017 2:32:51 PM)

I'm curious as to how the new NATO sprites are received? I was a little surprised by the color change by Phalen but I quickly warmed to them.

I've made a lot of changes so far, if there is any comments on balance they are very welcome!




sad ham -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/11/2017 2:52:40 PM)

I've tried the Sipres ones, but I prefer yours. Not good for my colour blindness, but it easy to reconize Army from corps.

The Army/Corps/Division distinctive color gives a really better reading and Thanks to Phalen to arrange Tech level for each nation Airforce.
However for the Nations colors I like so so...
The soviets rendering is good but I prefer the Vanilla colors for all others nations.

After all anything is just a question of taste or perception




crispy131313 -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/22/2017 3:37:46 AM)

I've uploaded Fall Weiss II - Version 8.3

https://www.dropbox.com/s/izo70mlrg4nc2wb/FW8.3.zip?dl=0

This version is based on the base campaign from 1.08. I will update with changes from 1.09 once the developers finish beta and release the version.

Major changes from Fall Weiss II version 8.0:
- Update to NATO Colors
- UK will now invoke the Anglo-Portuguese Alliance in some games for variability
- Italy will receive 2 Littorio Class Battleships in 1940 rather than 1
- Increased Strength/Experience of Graf Spee if returned to port safely
- Fixed a scenario where the Vichy Collaboration policy would not initiate
- Decreased Soviet AI Bonus Units at the Intermediate or Higher Level
- Lowered the cost of establishing some German Trade Agreements
- Added some more what if events in specific circumstances





bluesteel -> RE: Fall Weiss II - Version 8.0 - (Ready for Download) (8/22/2017 8:16:03 PM)

Any help; just spent over two hours trying to get this to go. The Fall Weiss shows in my campaign folder; shows a Fall Weiss 8.2 cgn file but does not show a DAT file; when load the game only the original campaigns show up.
