Global WW2 Mod - Create all the scenarios you can think of

Post by maitrebongo »

This mod aims to create or port scenarios on all theaters of the second world war. It allows to create a certain diversity of units and situations which should be favorable to the creators of scenarios for this game.

This mod adds 7 new nations :

- Finland
- France
- Hungary
- Italy
- Japan
- Romania
- Slovakia

NEW - Poland

The mod includes :

- more than 260 vehicles (all periods and all nations)
- new infantry units including for the original game nations (US Marines for the USA for example)

If you have any suggestions for new nations or units that I should add in a future version of the mod, please let me know.

How to install the Global WW2 mod

1 - Download the mod here (version 1.3 of 2022/03/22)

2 - Unzip the zip archive in the COUNTERS folder of your game
(It is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steamapps\common\Valor and Victory\assets)

3 - Overwrite the original files
As the game does not integrate a mod management, you are obliged to replace the original files of the game by those of the mod.
It is advised to make a backup of the original files of your game if you wish to go back without having to reinstall the game.
You can also use an external mod manager like the JoneSoft Generic Mod Enabler (JSGME) for example.

4 - Enjoy

How does it work?

As it is impossible for the moment to add independent nations to the game, I have added the minor axis allies to the German OOB and the allied ones to the British OOB.
The units of the different nations are identifiable by the color of their counters which is specific to each country.

This mod does not affect the proper functioning of the game's original scenarios, nor does it affect savegames or saved multiplayer games.

Source files

This mod can be used and modified by anyone in any way. Everyone is free to make it his own and to make it evolve.
To this end, I put at your disposal the source graphic files (Photoshop format) and I'm at your disposal to explain the tricks I found for the creation of the different files (TXT, XML and PNG) which constitute this mod.

Download the source files here

I hope you will appreciate the new dimension of Valor and Victory and the possibilities that are offered to us now (SL, ASL, ATS conversion scenarios...)

The mod has been updated in the first post of the thread with version 1.1
This is a fix for a graphics bug that could prevent the correct display of German armor on some computer graphics cards.
This fix does not impact the scenarios you may have created before with this mod.

I can't get the mod to download from either link. I click on it and the browser indicator spins for a second and then just stops.

edit: I kept clicking on the 1.1 link and it eventually started the download. Thanks for the work on this.

As mentioned on Steam, your kindness in fixing the bug that affected my crappy computer is oh, so impressive.

Your mod makes the entry cost of the base game an even greater value. And, IMHO, the dev's recent Stalingrad DLC is well worth it, as well.

Altogether, it's quite a package and a bargain for new buyers of the base game.

Hi
Just bought the game and really like your WW2 mod. The Modern one looks really interesting as well but can we please have the guns for the allied and axis minors as well, and perhaps some infantry guns for those nations that had them ?

This is a great mod on any event.

Kind regards
Ian
