    Thanks, the mod works on my laptop, but having issues transferring to the desktop. I think I'm forgetting an altered file somewhere! Rolling Eyes

    Great work!
    I think it's time to release a special mission devoted to the new MOD!
    Let's say it is March 1945, German desperatly tryes to intercept an initiative and start the counter attack on the Western front! I'm not good at Allies history in WW2, but many ppl prefer the activity as a battle at Bulge. What du u think?

    PS
    Would be nice, if u note the order of installation (picture with a text) to get the mod Expanded Units working!

    I have a Prokhorovka mission with various vehicles, even a hypothetical mission in 1944 with a Jagdtiger! I am working on the video for YouTube. But my StuG video is there at "KurtTank", and Panther and Jagdpanzer IV (although neither not present at Prokhorovka) videos are there, too.

    To pick up the new poses for desant:
    1. start OE then select:
    ...Steel Fury - Kharkov 1942\data\k42\loc_rus\go\anims\anims.go
    2. pick up any

    Time for another lesson from Master Lockie:

    Still putting infantry riding on the vehicles and wondering if I can create new poses for the infantry....

    Can they be adjusted, for example, moving the legs in, hands around, etc. in the object editor. Seems Lockie told me they are only adjustable using a 3D modeler? Logic tells me you can move parts of the infantry man in the object editor?

    I access the poses (and animations, but not interested in them) in common\anims\anims.go, then can see the different poses in animation, eg. "commander_pose_mk2", but can I copy the pose, rename it, then adjust the legs, arms, etc?

    Also, can you explain the entry in common\anims.engcfg:

    bt7_driver,driver_pose_t34,drv_death_t34,driver_pose_t34,driver_pose_t34,driver_pose_t34,driver_pose_t34,driver_left,driver_right,driver_pose_t34;

    I know the second entry is the pose....what are the other entries for?

    I don't know . I tried, but failed. Theoretically, it's possible to do it in 3D editor, but nobody had done it yet.

    I guess, it is designed for the other action in the tank/trench, ie reload the shell for loader or shoot from trench or shoot from laying/knee, running.
    Somebody should try to create the pose in 3D max then import it in OE and see what happen.

    Okay, thanks, I thought that you had said it is really difficult, hopefully possible someday. In the meantime, I'll make due with what's there. It looks okay from a distance!

    Newest unit creation:





    I still have to adjust the infantry for the StuG III F and G models. It is a tedious process!
