When it does.




I know that sounds like a canned answer, and it's one many of us have given over the years when this question is asked, and it has been asked many times of many mods. Please see my answer on the previous page, post #1333.

That's a question I ask every day.

It depends on my work/continuing education, as well as how much help I get. There are several things that I could use assistance with:

-Modeling ships in Wings3d (if you want your country's units included, you will need to help! As stated earlier, I myself will be focusing on British and German vessels). Any WWI ships are fine - please, no fictional warships or post-WWI ships. Generic fictional merchant ships or small boats are OK, as long as they look like World War I era craft.

-Low poly models of human beings, in appropriate WWI clothing - civilians and soldiers are needed.

-**VERY HIGH PRIORITY: From European fans, pictures of old-fashioned buildings - houses, etc that still look like they looked in 1914. Historic photos of towns and harbors from 1890 - 1918 would be extremely welcome.** I would like good, forward shots with no blurring, no tilting, and no modern accessories on the buildings like neon signs, etc. If you're European and live near old cottages/houses/churches, help out! Everyone has camera phones these days.

-Similarly, maps of European harbors & coastal towns

-Maps of lighthouses and lightships

-Pictures of European buoys

-Good profile photos of fish & marine life

-Lists of plausible ship names for major maritime countries - if you are Norwegian, French, Swedish, Italian, Dutch, Greek, or Danish you can probably help me out here

-Lists of plausible radio messages (ships sinking, survivors picked up, enemy vessels spotted, etc).

-Lists of major WWI military events for in-campaign newspapers

-Ideas, ideas, ideas. If you can't mod, throw ideas out there. I want this to be immersive, and I want the ocean/coastal environment to seem REAL. The idea is to even make transition to your patrol area interesting with all the little details, etc you notice in the game.

-Accented German voice acting (not a high priority, just throwing it out)
-Accented English/Scottish/Irish/Commonwealth voices (just in case)... Again, not making any promises, but we will see.

And Oliver, thanks for the info on U-20's gun. I had seen pictures of it in front of and behind the CT.

Regarding the submarine roster, U-93 class is likely to be added because I have a good model of it. I may also add UB-II and UB-III classes. Depends on what tricks I can use to force the game to recognize different hulls - IIRC there is a hard coded limit. But I think I can pull it off.

Hi, I don't know much about WW1 so are you going to include in this mod news about the war? Like radio messages about real or false successes or newspaper articles, I think would be cool because it could allow people (like me) to learn about WW1 via a video game.

OK.
IABL would you want a map with the most importants harbours of Mediterranean sea,Black sea and Baltic sea?
And would you want images of Trieste (that was the most important commercial harbour of the Austro-Hungarian Empire)?
For the bulgarian campaign I will send to you a message with all informations and images about the black sea in First World War(skinn of the submarine, images of Varna and a map with the patrol zones and the nautical routes of the russian,bulgarian,romanian and ottoman merchant ships and warships from 1915 to 1917)
PS I am making a new WW1 german sound mod for WOTK, I'm uniting the sounds of the film "Lusitania" with the old "SH4 german voice mod".

Yes, there will be newspapers. They will tell of major, true events during the war: the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, Battle of the Marne, Verdun, bombing of London, etc.

Keep in mind that some articles will be propaganda, and exaggerate successes. There will be international wireless news service (through wireless messages) that will be fairly accurate. I would like to make wireless only accessible close to land (historical accuracy) but I don't think there's a way to mod this.

I posted earlier that you will also get your own headlines when you succeed or fail - that way, your wife/girlfriend can read all about your triumphs. Or find out that you're not coming home, thanks to a dumb mistake....

Great. Thank you! maps of the major harbors, especially, will be useful, along with shipping routes. Any voice sounds would also be helpful.

If you have 32 bit Windows, then get 32. If you have 64 bit, then get 64.

Thanks.
