    Expanded Units MOD Update:

    Post by KurtTank on Tue Dec 13, 2016 3:57 am



    Here is a MOD that expands the number and type of units for the ME and the game. The units are in new categories and easier to find. It may be overkill, but I added combinations of units you may find helpful, and fun. Not all computers can handle the units combos, so be aware of that.

    Here is my work so far. It is far from done, but gives you a good idea of where I'm going with it. It works with STA 2.3. It will be updated periodically, so I will show this by the newest date on the zip file.


    Updated 08/21/2017:
    Expanded Units 1.9g

    That is from Frinik's and Lockie's smoke effects tweaks. Let me find it and I'll post here.

    Newest expanded units for STA 2.3

    Post by KurtTank on Sat Jan 20, 2018 9:19 pm



    Finally have a lot of additions to the ME unit list, including SS SdKfz crew and transport troops, SS infantry squads, platoons, desant, etc. Also worked on the Soviet side, adding lots of new unit combinations. Not ready to release it yet, but here are some examples of new units:

    Newest creation:

    StuG III Ausf. C/D + 21 desant



    Looks pretty good, would like to have some more infantry poses to work with for desant!

    Okay, I'll upload the newest files to 4Shared tomorrow...I have an account. If you want it uploaded on another site let me know and I can provide it for testing.

    I am fairly certain there are bugs from former additions to the common_units and STA files that I corrected or didn't correct that will make it crash. I've tried to keep the original STA 2.3 files intact, but there were incompatibilities and a few incomplete entries to contend with. It is a work-in-progress...
