I use ALiVE extensively,
The default IFA factions work fine, as do the tanks and mechanized.
I have a mission on steam currently using all of these with no issues.
In order to utilize them...you'll need to use multiple factions in the Military AI Commander module (LIB_WEHRMACHT, LIB_PANZERWAFFE).
2 different ways to go about this....
1. Place the Wehrmacht Faction in the CIV Objective module, Place the Panzerwaffe Faction in the MIL Objective module (or vice versa) and then place both faction names in the Military AI Commander module. Tanks, Infantry, Halftracks, etc. will all spawn just fine.
2. Choose one faction (Either Infantry or Panzer) and place that faction name in both MIL and CIV Objective modules. Then manually place units of the other faction on the map and sync those manually placed units to the ALIVE Virtual AI module. Put the faction names of both in the Military AI Commander module as done in #1. Again...both tanks and infantry will spawn fine.
***NOTE**** The next ALiVE update will include IFA3 specific vehicles for logistics as well. I added all IFA3 factions into the static data so ambient vehicles, supply boxes, and transport trucks will be the correct ones from the IFA3 faction
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand...... (shameless plug here!)
Speaking of ORBAT...
I am in the process of creating several WW2 faction configs combining the "best bits" of all of the wonderful WW2 mods out there now. IFA3, IFA3 Liberation, Faces of War, and CSA 38. I'm currently working on Early/Mid/Late War Wehrmacht factions with appropriate weapons/vehicles/tanks for each. I also plan on doing a British faction with Cromwell Tanks, Sherman Fireflys, etc., An Expanded Afrika Korps faction, and several others. I will post these on the forums an steam of course.
I have already completed my first ORBAT WW2 config which represents a 1942 era Wehrmacht. This is used in my next ALiVE IFA3 campaign that I will be posting in my workshop.
Keep up the great work IFA3 team!
As I suspect you only want another flamebait, good luck with that and the bananas.
Now Rich_R has two good answers without creating an issue with people with different opinions.
