World War 2: Europe - Beta

Author File Description
TheRaven101
File Details
Needs T&P?: Yes
This is my first attempt at a serious mod, so don't judge harshly.

It is a CTW campaign focusing on Europe and its environs during World War 2. Still in beta version, as I need help with scripting to continue.

Includes:
-New original map of Europe, North Africa and West Asia with well-researched WW2 era borders.
-Campaign map and territories completed
-22 new factions with 4 playable
-Starting diplomacy, vassals and descriptions completed
-Play as: Nazis, Soviets, Allied Nations (UN) or Great Britain

Please report any bugs or errors here.

If you liked what's done so far, perhaps you could help me complete it. I am severely underhanded at the moment (I have two hands to be exact) and am utterly useless at scripting and mapmaking. Things I need help with include: scripting (for battles and for campaign ai), 2D artistry (for Loading, Victory and Defeat screens and such) 3D moddeling and skinning, (conquest graphics peices, new unit skins, etc...) If you're interested, PM me.

super7700 Looks really interesting. For models and skins, maybe you should use Nikox's Age of Tanks or Wadis' Second Great War mod if you can get their permission. I'm sure they wouldn't mind having their mod appearing in a campaign.
Zyosyo how to install this?

@super7700 thank you! As to the skins, what I really are skins for conquest army pieces for the Germans, unit skins are a second priority, besides, I don't know how to enable special faction-specific units for the campaign.

@Zyosyo, if you have TP, simply extract the files from the .rar, I use WinRAR, and place the files in the conquest folder in the Thrones and Patriots folder in the main game directory, and the specific subfolders that the files organized into which also appear in the conquest folder.
SlothieSloth Do you mean army pieces on the main map outside of batlles?

If so visit the (conquestgraphicpieces) section in CTW_Cold_War_Map_01.xml for referance.
Though if your planning to have all 22 factions with a custom conquest army piece skin I suspect you'll only find 2 in the art files ( The ones for the Cold War campaign ). For the rest you might have to aquire them yourself.

To enable, :) how you put it, special faction special units for your campaign :

eg - To give the Spanish the Elite Conquistador instead of the Carabineer in the enlightenment age for the Entire World Campaign ( you can do this for any unit and campaign )

Enter the ctw_lib.bhs file in Thrones and Patriots-scenario-scriptlibrary make a declaration for the Entire World Campaign ( this is where you put your campaign's name ) :

void conquest entire_world_rules();

then somewhere down the line after all the other declarations you edit in :

void conquest entire_world_rules() [
If (get_age() == 4) [
disable_type_by_tribe("Carabineer", "Spanish");
enable_type_by_tribe("Elite Conquistador", "Spanish", "Stable;0;2);
if (!have_tech(a+1, "Elite Conquistador")) [
gain_upgrade(a+1, "Elite Conquistador");
]
]
]


I hate scripting!

Thanks SlothieSloth, that's really helpful.
As to the conquest graphics pieces, i am aware of the two for Cold War campaign, though im unsure of how to set which piece for which faction, (at the moment all factions use the Soviet army pieces), but i don't intend for all 24 factions to have a custom army piece, only the 4 playable factions, for which i already have 2, and UK can have the same as UN, so that only leaves the Germans. Unfortunately, i have no skill or talent at modelling/skinnning.
SlothieSloth Wow, I was looking through all the Cold War xml files and scripts and even some data files and I couldn't find out how to change the army piece for a faction :(. I think it may be hardcoded or something.

I think you should ask your question in one of the forums, maybe someone there knows how to do it.

Perhaps someone who downloaded could think of some improvements for the map that require minimal scripting? I'm all ears. For heavier scripting I'd need to do some research and investigation first.
thecommunist I got it into the conquest folder by using winrar but I still do not know how to play it.

Care to help?
