Following the popular demand, i have started work on a war of 1812 submod for NTW2.
Due to the limitations in the number of entry in DMB, i have totally suppressed the portuguese, spanish, and swedish factions (sorry to all the people from these countries )
There will be two main factions for this mod : The USA and the UK (as you could figure for yourselves perhaps ) my goal is to produce a historically acurate representation of this war, perfect for the rtw engine, as the largest engagements were around 5000 fighters, iirc.
Anyway, i already have created new regiments for both these factions : The 5th West indies regiment, composed of colored soldiers, and the Royal Marines for the UK faction. I also created new flagbearer for the canadian militia, and i used the magnificent piper thelordz gave to us for the highlanders.
For the USA, i have re-used the USA factions you could find in the rhine/US submod, but i have created custom officer, flagbearer, and i'm finishing the drummer, before starting the cavalry officer. I have also reworked the Light dragoons's texture.
Both nations will have irregular units, like indian americans, or militiamen, or even citizens levies.
Anyway, I am in search of
- 1 guy who could modify some models for me (i run on a mac, 3DS is impossible for me)
- 1 guy who could generate sprites for me, as my graphic card generates only empty sprites .tga files
Also, if any guy from thelordz passes around here, is there any chance that i can borrow you PSD files of some of your textures? It would make my life a LOT easier.
I will post some early development screenshots later this day.
