Isn't this a 'point of view' (POV) issue? Always an issue with any kind of simulation or game. By that, I mean who is the player actually playing? Each sections leader, tank commander or gun crew leader? For me, I'd rather the AI handles on the spot decisions, while me - as company/platoon - command...

Pacific War

The production of graphics and data files for AFVs, infantry, artillery, ranks, flags, names, etc. covering Japanese, Chinese, Australian, New Zealander and Dutch East Indies armies, is now complete. The British have been expanded slightly and the U.S. given new vehicles and marines. There's quite a...

Situation Report and some questions...

Hi Sean, Just thought I'd give you a report on how things coming along. Japanese fine, Chinese fine, Far East/Pacific terrain fine. Nothing new posted to website yet - by late Wednesday, I'd guess. Q1. How big can I have trees? The spread - not the height? I suppose the question is really, how big c...

This is great Sean, No you're right I didn't mean Dynamic Link Libraries (I have DLLs on the brain the moment!), I meant they (the .txt) just look like plain text config files . Du-h! Thanks for pointing me to the link - I will look at help. On turrets - sorry, yes, it's not only offset front to bac...

Thanks Sean. On the turrets then I'm kind of glad that there was a glitch, as I got quite perplexed as to how to do offset turrets (most Japanese tanks seem to have turrets that weren't on the centre lines of the hull). The options seem to me that they trace a circle (and look odd) around the right ...

Japanese units, graphics data and other info now available..

...for review.

Sean (and anyone else who like to comment),

The stuff I've been working on over the past few days in now available on www.sforza.150m.com

I'd really like people's comments.

Further files and data will be posted (as a separate zip) later in the week.

Cheers.

Replying to myself...

Forget the above (except for the example sprites Sean). I've worked out Maskmaker and the rotate tool - so I think that's sorted. Just me being dumb!

Cheers.

Design Considerations...

Sean, when designing 'top view' vehicle sprites, presumably what is required is, intially: 1. A top view of the hull minus rotating turret (if there is one) shaded to 'south east' direction. 2. A top view of any rotating turret, with similar type shading. I'm having trouble figuring out whether the ...

Japanese Graphics...

That's fine Sean, I made the assumption about .GIF as the flag file was a 72bpi gif? Japanese names will be shortist (8 chars or less) - I'll do the edit over weekend. Won't have a vast amount of time this weekend, but hope to get everything to you by - say, Late Tuesday GMT? Be CRITICAL! If you don...

Graphic Design...

Sean, I've now got some graphics of Japanese armour (top and side), artillery and infantry and a bit of tropical terrain (trees). Data is being spreadsheeted (as per your current 3.99 table format). Graphics can be rescaled, etc. However, I need some design rules. AFV scale I know. I'm assuming 72bp...

Re-equipped Italians (on a page about the Japanese)???

Sean, The Italians were re-equipped in early 1944, but what with I have no absolutely idea. I'd imagine Shermans, etc. I can probably find out though. On anything Italian there is: http://www.comandosupremo.com/index.shtml I'll start an new thread if we're going to parliamo Italiano (talk Italian)!

Flags and Japanese rank insignia...

Yes, Andy is right. but this is not the flag of the Kingdom of Italy that should probably be used in the game. The Fascist flag shown is the one used for a short time by Mussolini in the the German occupied areas after he was dismissed as Duce and before he was strung up in Milan. During that period...
