Army of the Czecho-Slovak republic

473 posts in this topic

Hi!

I want to inform you about new ArmA mod - ACSR 1938.

We are making mod from WWII period - Czecho-Slovak Army. The mod is progressing quickly, but we need 3d/2d artist and map-makers. In mod you can play as Czech or Slovak, maybe as Freikoprs - German civil forces. In mod will be two campaigns - One real, One unreal.

Mod will be release in two versions - For OFP and for Armed Assault.

Our mod is in cooperation with W39 mod smile_o.gif

Our mod issued alpha version of Slovak Pack for OFP

I'm very pleased to see some good (and "different") early

Second World War stuff. Can you explain a bit more? These

are Slovak troops - who were allied to the Germans (until

1944) and fought on the Eastern front, yes?

I'm not sure, but he might also be referring to the Czech army that opposed the Nazi invasion of the Sudetenland, anyways, I'm also glad to see something come out of WW 2 besides US Army Airborne Lol D-Day normandy.

I remember you mentioning the commandos, now that is some very exciting stuff! What are some things you had in mind?

Oh yeah this one,

No no, the 'commandos' idea was a disaster back then, now we are focusing on czechoslovakian army ! smile_o.gif

Can I get a polycount for those vehicles?

Yes.

Models will be optimized.  wink_o.gif

Its around 20 000 (Without optimalization)

Well I don't want to hijack this thread (and I will get

back on topic at the end of this post) but I'm planning

initially to do British Army Commando raiders (like this

brave fellow) and Long Range Desert Group with some

appropriate missions to go with them. I suppose I'll also

have to get into "island making" too for these. Ultimately

I want to also do some representative British infantry

addon sets from WW2 date until the mid-1980s (the

"Project UKF" people already have present day British

stuff well-covered). I hope the modelling tools won't be

too long in coming! In the meantime I can practise with

3D max and Photoshop like the Czech/Slovak mod guys.

Back on topic; as a Bren gun afficionado (and even a

"professional user" of one for a while) I'll be chuffed if

the Czech/Slovak mod guys (among all their other stuff)

will be releasing models of the zb 26 or the zgb!    notworthy.gif  

(sorry for the thread derail at the start)

wow_o.gif

That's quite a lot! Even ArmA won't be able to handle that.

And that machine gun model there looks like it's going to be very laggy when you'll have more than 5 onscreen.

High poly models are used to generate normal maps, so that the low poly version will look 90% identical like the high poly version, but without the insane polycount wink_o.gif

Yes, I am aware of that, but normal map models usually have higher polycounts than 20,000.

Is that the process they call texture baking? Make a high poly model, render it and apply the resulting texture to a low poly model. Applied in some cockpits in Il-2 for example the Polikarpov I-185 fighterprototype.

The model 7/24 is a Schwarzloze? Interested because I experimented with bunkers the dutch model 08/15 was being built into in the Netherlands. Also interested in the model and code for the bunkers.

wink_o.gif Yes. Hevy Machinegun (HM) is modified HM vz.7 - Schwarzloze.

Adjustment and production did do ammunition works "Janecek".

JdB knows what he's talking about, he was refering to me.

But what doesn't seem to be clear with you? Yes, normal maps(at least good ones) are generated from highpoly models, usually a capable program like 3dsmax generates them by comparing the low poly and the high poly and then from that generates the normal map.

Texture baking is a process where you apply shadows onto the texture via a capable program like 3dsmax, you apply lighting in the scene, render it and the render output will be your texture or texture map with highlights and shadows implemented. I tried this once, but I didn't like it a lot, didn't give me the desired effect.
