Battle for Westfront *WW2 Era in Early Period of War*

Post by Ruglud » August 22nd, 2012, 2:00 pm

What will I do?

My goal is to create a full World War 2 era in the early war period, with factions like the German Reich, Poland, France, Italy etc. with different strengths and weaknesses.
Every faction will get unique units with their own special profiles, look and upgradepossibility.
You command Infanty, Artillery, Tanks, Vehicles and Airplanes.

After I finished this Era, a campaign and Mappack will follow.

For latest details and news take a look on the last page.


What will you get?

A nearly complete multiplayer-era with:
- 4 Factions
- Over 40 units
- complete idle-, death-, and shooting animation for every single unit
- 20 new sounds
- new symbols
and much more in the future!

Screenshots:

Some examples for units:

The sprites look good, the Panzerkampfwagen III especially. Though the schutze's right shoulder looks funny. And the MG-34 Schutze looks like he's wearing a wig. (yes, I realize it's an ammo belt)

So, were you planning on creating a modern era?

Thanks for your compliment.

The MG Gunner and a wig? :geek: I dont really see it. And what did you mean with the shoulder of the Schütze?

Yes, I want to create a WW2 Era. The factions I want to create are germans, french, english, polish, russians and finns.

What happened to the Japanese and the Italians? Not to mention the US...and the inclusion of the Finns is intriguing. They certainly had an interesting predicament before and after the war.

In din of crowded streets, going among the years, the faces,
May I still meet my memory in so lonely a place
Between the streams and the red clouds, hearing the curlews, Hearing the horizons endure.

Man, this is great... I have been dying to find something like this! :o You have my support, I'll write you a PM, maybe I could help (be calm, only a little). It is especially nice that you are going to include Poland and Finland :) Maybe this time someone will finish WW2 addon for wesnoth... I'll definitely keep my eye on your era.

I wish you all the best, take care and keep going! *(RADIO): Period! Do your job soldier. Let's win this!*

Thank you very much, Sagez! With these words, I will "paint" the next model and present it later this day.

Waiting for your PM. ^_^

The MG gunner's ammo belt that drapes around his neck looks like a wig draping from his helmet. If you darkened it's color it wouldn't, I think.

And ignore the shoulder, it looks fine upon second look.

And the faction list looks great, by the way.

Dont forget, these are Beta Sprites. :P But thanks for your advice. I will change it, soon!

You might want to look through the forums for some inspiration-many before you have tried and failed with WW2 eras! The art workshop is full of artwork from failed, or unported WW2 add-ons. You might even want to use some of them, or at least draw inspiration. tanks are very popular- here's my favourite by Major:

I only posted it in case you wanted to take some inspiration from it, or learn from its style. Major's old art thread has loads of these WW2 sprites. Also, the art should probably go in the Art Workshop thread. BtW, Italians has an "a" in it :P .

Not bad, but polish uniforms were green, never brown. Take a look -> http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/194/p1260897.jpg/
*UPDATE* Ok, I just saw more pics, some polish uniforms are looking ''at least a little brown'', lol. I don't have time now, but I see why you handled them that way. :)
