    Mod "Eastern Front"

    Post by dukling on Sun Nov 01, 2015 4:36 am

    Hi all, spread over Eastern Front mod, author Vovus
    www.4shared.com/rar/90tdjYykba/mods.html
    www.4shared.com/rar/6OO-TTxdce/EasternFront.html
    How to set up the mod:




    Readme:

    This mod is not a continuation of the SPM/NTA, it is an alternative modification of the game. This compilation is devoted only to the eastern front, the Anglo-American units in the missions will be replaced by the Soviet. This compilation set only pure play (not on top of the SPM/NTA), Mission weather again and put on top of mod. Assembling reads all Mission packs NTA, but edited on a mission of this assembly in the NTA will fly. So either we make our Mission Pack or copy and rename an existing one, such as Mission pack (Eastern Front). All new units will appear only after editing missions in the editor, no editing in the original missions may cause infantry from different years. Major changes:
    All the units in the editor consists of a platoon of tanks/spg' corresponding state in a given year. In mixed units are only available light and medium tanks, heavy tanks and self-propelled guns were used mainly only as reinforcement. A new technique (recycled from old models, so the similarity with real examples relative):
    76mm regimental gun mod.43
    OB-25 107mm divisional guns M-6020mm anti-aircraft gun Flakvierling 3837mm anti-aircraft gun Flak1842 / 28mm PTO Rak4188mm PTO Pak43 / 41105mm mountain howitzers GebH40120mm mortar GrW42105mm howitzer assault STUH42F105mm howitzer assault STUH42G75mm PZIIIN75mm JagdPzIV (Pak39)88mm JagdTiger85mm SU-85MIntroduced experimental tanks that existed in only one zkzemplyare:KV-1 with VMS-F-22, vyp.42gHF-9 vyp.42gT-70 BT-42, vyp.43gT-34-57, vyp.43gT-34-76 to C-54 vyp.43gHF-85g, vyp.43gSC-85-2, vyp.43gSU-122-III, vyp.43gKV-100, vyp.44gT-34-85 with ZIS1, vyp.45gT-34-100, vyp.45gISU-122-1, vyp.45gIn connection with the advent of 43-44gg. and broneprozhigayuschih piercing ammunition, introduced the separation of these guns:57mm ZIS-2 (43g release)76mm ZIS-3 (43g release)122mm M-30 (43g release)85mm 52-K (44g release) Each cannon projectile loading animation completed yet and the release liner (visible only on the technique controlled by the player). All models completed yet dimensional illumination for night missions.Permission Infantry Division in connection with the introduction of a new form:Russian - before and after the 43g (introduced shoulder straps)Germans - before and after the 44g (introduced camouflage). The divisions in the APC camouflage is already in 43g.All mixed units and the calculations of guns in different years would be appropriate to infantry.Infantry sit on the T-34-76 / 42/43 and T-34-85 with the "Machine" menu on the map, separate tank landing, in principle, not necessary.Permission division explosions from shells, now armor, shrapnel, piercing, cumulative and mortar different visualization break. It increased the amount of exhaust, sparks, debris and dirt from the wheels. For a realistic display of the exhaust and smoke need to pack to put on top of Mission fix restores the standard speed and gusty winds - WindDefolt (Mission_pack)Changed menu design games and statistics, reduce the size and location of the buttons and icons, sounds and edited cockpits in the game. The default game on the site of the arrow off the entire interface in addition to the display of shells, to restore the standard interface - Fixed Gunner-Interf-Alternative Options:All AP tracers changed to red, and cumulative - green. Edit all the sights and replaced by caterpillar on some tanks.Reducing the maximum speed on all appliances (a bit too frisky they move, if not for tanks 30-50tonn and passenger cars)------------------------ Author mod Vovus -----------------------03/15/14

    Mod is not completely compatible with Original installation. Therefore need separate game.

    Readme is too complicate to understand.

    I installed that mod and frankly STA has nothing to fear from it. A few original things; a new menu settings, instead of the Steel Fury screen you get a World of Tank screen , the map when the mission opens up has done with the Steel Fury  drop down on the right-hand side and now you can see the entire whole map at the beginning of a mission. The default ambient noises have been replaced by some of the authors' own including howling monkeys, a crow(bird) instead of the song birds and some other strange battle background sounds.  The menu screen is entirely new and original and remind me of some tank rts like Men of War. No new missions just the plain STA/NTA ones. New tanks including the KV-9, the T34-85 with 100mm gun,The T34-85 with various 85 mm guns variants, the Jagdtiger with the Pak43 88mm, the SU-122 with  the StuH42, Jagdpanzer IV with the L48 a KV with the 100mm gun and a few more others. The ME is organised differently and you get tanks organised along chronological lines 1941, 1942, 1943 and 1944. Interesting concept .Some of the tank models look different as if they were imported form other games for example the T34/85. The sounds are very limited and the author has borrowed heavily from the STA and NTA mods.

    Thank u Frinik for the detailed explanations!
    I've heard abt. this mod, but never installed. There should be also some new destroyed models(like Jagdpanther) or may be I'm wrong.

    I did a quick look.
    I did the driving tutorial.
    I like the amount of dust the tanks kick up and the dirt clods the tracks throw seen from the driver position. I tried the same tutorial in STA (same T-34/76 Model 41 for comparison) not much dust and no dirt thrown from the tracks.

    I would like to try Eastern Fronts settings in STA. Where are the settings (file/script line) for these effects located?

    It's in the common resolution file under the " parts_desc()" paragraph.

    Here are the settings entries for the white and brown dust for the STA 1.0 Mod:

    dust_wh,2,10,0.2,2.5,1,0.2,0.01,0.6,0.4,3,0,dust_sphere0,0x0000000a,sh_ablendd,0xff9A8E5F,0x009A8E5F,1,10;
    stones_wh,1,2,0.06,0.06,1,0,1,0.5,0,1,0,piece_sphere0,0x00000012,sh_ablend,0xff3E3825,0xff3E3825,0.1,0;
    dust_br,2,15,1.5,5,1,0.1,0.01,0.7,1,1,0,dust_sphere0,0x0000000a,sh_ablendd,0xff9A8E5F,0x009A8E5F,1,10;

    Just change them to:

    Eastern Front

    dust_wh,2.5,20,0.2,2.5,1,0.2,0.01,0.6,0.4,3,0,dust_sphere0,0x0000000a,sh_ablendd,0xff9A8E5F,0x009A8E5F,1,10;
    //dust_wh,2,20,0.2,2.5,1,0.2,0.01,0.6,0.4,3,0,dust_sphere0,0x0000000a,sh_ablendd,0x80ffffff,0x00ffffff,1,10;
    dust_br,0,15,1.5,5,1,0.1,0.01,0.7,1,1,0,dust_sphere0,0x0000000a,sh_ablendd,0xff9A8E5F,0x009A8E5F,1,10;
    //dust_br,0,15,1.5,5,1,0.1,0.01,0.7,1,1,0,dust_sphere0,0x0000000a,sh_ablendd,0x80ffffff,0x00ffffff,1,10;

    However be warned this is an fps killer. While the smoke from the shots, the explosions, the engines or the fires is not that bad the dust effects really slow down your game. I did an experiment with 6 tanks and 3 apcs kicking up dust and my fps went down from 44 to 12 in a few seconds..... or the

    I've found an excellent song, which could be a red line(video/music) of this mod!
    March of the defenders of Moscow

    В атаку стальными рядами
    Мы поступью твёрдой идём.
    Родная столица за нами,
    Врагам преградим путь огнём.

    Мы не дрогнём в бою
    За столицу свою,
    Нам родная Москва дорога.
    Нерушимой стеной,
    Обороной стальной
    Разгромим, уничтожим врага.
    Нерушимой стеной,
    Обороной стальной
    Разгромим, уничтожим врага.
