    I know you mod developers are working hard, but did you see the article on the main news page about the author who stopped working on his book so he could just play civ? Now THAT is someone you guys should emulate, he should be your role-model! :goodjob:

    Sure family, school, job, relationships, commitments...they are all important things, in their own way, but Civ4... that's just good living. I think you owe it to yourself, and to the whole Civ community, to take every waking moment and dedicate it to completing this monumental and glorious work of scenario making. I know we'd all really appreciate it.:mischief:

    lol we're working 24h 7days a week ;)
    mostly in three persons now - splinter13 joined the team :)


    @wotan321
    lol i have the same filling :)
    modding grabs now a lot of time (i must say all the time :mischief: ) but i,m just another civ4 addict :) so it's rather hobby than forced labour :)

    luckly i can't play civ4 in work (what doesn't mean i don't make mod there sometimes :D ). With civ3 i have problems with passing the exams on high school - so much time i spend playing in civ :D. and civ2 was the first game wich made me sticky to the monitor for hours :)

    so civ's are evil ;)

    Okay, so I spend too much time playing civ! Maybe I am addicted to it! But if I am addicted to something, isn't Civilization better than being addicted to Heroin or Crack or something? Hmm..... on the other hand, if I was addicted to Heroin, at least I'd get up off the chair, go outside and actually interact with other people.... I need to think about this..... <g>.

    Of course I am joking! I don't have time to go buy heroin.... I'm too frickin' busy playing Civ!

    And I am joking too when I emplore you guys to deny the finer things in life just to speed up your progress on this scenario.

    See, now that is good news. Keep up the good work! Seriously, we are all eager to give this mod a try.

    i hope they won't release civilzation V earlier than this mod will be finished, cause it could stop all the work :joke:

    usa will be spawn on the map or be as a cheap units that can be build in allies cities (of course with some limitations)

    map will be europe only because adding whole world would make europe to tiny
    maybe onother scenarios will add japan usa and other world countries

    now we're only focused on europe and year 1939

    ....did you say Ju-88?

    This is perhaps the biggest news since we heard they were working on Civ4. I have been wanting to see a Ju-88 unit since day one.....

    Life is good.

    All joking aside, the mod is looking great.

    Are you planning to integrate any of the warlords interface and SDK mods into this one? TheLopez's "statesman" unit would fit well with this mod, and many of the modded advisor screens would add a lot.

    Also, will this mod have events?

    Keep up the good work, we are looking forward to playing this.

    I'm not sure about the interface and SDK mods because this isn't really "My" mod, but I am helping with it.

    Events will be in because we need America to spawn at certain points in the game. If you've been reading the posts before, we are unable to have a world map because it makes europe to small which is where all the action goes down. Therefore USA cannot be in unless they just spawn at certain intervals.

    About the interface and SDK question, I believe we are just trying to publish a v1.0 right now and we are only adding in what is really nessesary. After v1.0 is released I'm sure we will be adding little tweaks and improvements in upcoming versions. But I may be wrong on this, like I said before, it isn't "My" mod.

    :D Splinter13 :D

    That makes perfect sense.

    Another question and I'll back off...for a day at least...

    The missiles mod and the ranged attack (Dora rail gun?) mod would be nice additions. And are any future luftwaffe units included, some of the planned jets?

    Just grist for the mill.

    Again, thanks for all your hard work on this.

    yep it would be nice to implement it (i mean rocket mod and dora rail gun), we would like to make it more realistic and important that is in civ4.

    About interface, and tha sdk and python things - we lack specialist who could made it :(

    and yes the would be place for jet fighters :)

    Update:

    Hey, we're adding in a Tank Factory for this WWII mod.

    It will be much like the stable in Warlords except for the fact that it will add experience bonuses to armour units instead of mounted units.

    This is my first model and i'm very happy with the final product. Although I had tons of help from Asioasioasio :p.




    For anyone wondering it's 248 pollies. I believe someone once said "Somthings are simple, yet sweet." :D

    Check here for more details and the download

    I'll assume you guys have seen/played Paasky's "WW2 Europe: Small, fast & Beautiful" mod? It has a lot of nice events and features you may want to emulate.

    Woohoo, these tanks look so great and then this Ju-88:crazyeye: :goodjob: I love the buttons, does the maus also have one? There was no displayed in the screenie.
    The tank factory is also very good, but could you make the skin more brick like? Would look more real. Also if two or three tanks standing outside the building, completed and incompleted (like one without turret) would be also great.:mischief:
    Are going to make the units and the building available through single downloads?
