USSR 120mm Mortar PM-38
(https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/f679/6xpnd5yjvjdfcud6g.jpg)

But it has big problems.
It doesn't fire to any enemies.
What is bad, I havn't known , using 3 hours.
hier.him ? "Gun" hook ? classfile ?
They seems all OK......  :(

After solving it , I will try a trailer of PM-38.

Don't forget,mortars have quite a short range. Make sure the enemy is no more than 1.5 kms away.

PM-38 problem is solved.

That's Ground_Level Hook.
Not to set Ground_Level Hook local position as ( 0.0 0.0 0.0 ).

I havn't known that limit.

Post by: max_thehitman on May 26, 2014, 03:15:39 AM
That looks great!

Any change in the future to have those human models separately with no guns or mortar?
They would be much needed for new soldier models for many map scenes and doing other work.

OH WOW!  8) That truck looks great now. SUPERB!

Many nice truck vehicles in DBW-1916 still have "square wheels"  :P They can also be used for WW2 maps.

I want some suggestions.

I made PM-38 trailer and ammunition box carrier , made towed by GAZ-AA.
(https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/8dbb/b09r8csc2ts60dv6g.jpg)

The view in game seems too lower (too small thier wheels).
How do you think?

Post by: max_thehitman on May 27, 2014, 03:06:12 PM

That looks awesome. Excellent looking trailer and ammo box carrier.
You might be correct, perhaps the wheels are just a little bit too small.
Can you make them 25% or 30% bigger?
Perhaps just a little bigger would look exactly like in the photograph.

Title: Re: western Artillery and truck , trailer
Post by: western0221 on May 27, 2014, 04:06:20 PM
Thanks your advise!

make 25% bigger wheels.

Great Western!  8) I love those new trucks. They are all so very well made and look beautiful.
Your a very good 3D-model artist. Big Cheers to you!

They could also be painted to look like WW2 Mercedes-Benz German trucks for carrying troops and gas.
Or even some Japanese , or italian trucks.

Would you consider doing 4 versions of these new trucks?
1 - summer (in green)
1 - Winter
1 - Dark blue-gray color (german or other enemy truck)
1 - Desert (painted in desert style camouflage)

Even if you do not paint them in these colors , but just create a folder with new entries for each type, I will
personally paint skins for each version for you. I dont mind doing it, it will be a way to relax for a while from
always painting airplanes and paint something diferent ;D
Title: Re: western Artillery and truck , trailer
Post by: western0221 on June 05, 2014, 12:54:10 PM
Hello, max_thehitman.

So, I have to ask someone about skinning , I will ask you it with your kindness.
First, I planned thier colors as .....
 - summer green / desert yellow (changing colors in map attribute)
 - US Army tri-color camo (indivisual slot)
and I can add winter folder in map attribute and another slot for dark blue gray one.
Totally maybe these 3 slots / 5 colors
 - summer green / winter / desert yellow
 - tri-color camo
 - dark blue gray

I want to add more variants like M-105 Cargo trailer , M34 truck (a bit different from M35) , M34 guntruck with Quad BrowningM2 (originally mac1's idea).
After completing them , maybe 1 week , I will ask skinning.
Almost of trucks share the same UV mapping.
Title: Re: western Artillery and truck , trailer
Post by: David Prosser on June 05, 2014, 09:05:06 PM
The truck and fuel trailer would look good in yellow. It would look like a council vehicle. Painted red, it would look like a water tender for a fire department. Painted light grey, it could be US navy.

cheers

Bad news.
One of My PC's HDD is broken.
I have three HDDs in the PC and 2 of them are alive , broken is only 1.
3D data and Modding work space is set on the alive one, they are healthy and nothing lost.

But applications I use in Modding becomes not to start because of that HDD broken.
I might have to buy a new HDD and install Windows a new.
I'm not sure when I will get back my modding time, tomorrow? 1 week after??

Post by: western0221 on June 30, 2014, 01:41:26 AM
When I will release M35 trucks pack,
is it better to provide a "Supply Car Column" as Vehicles?

Now I prepare normal single type Vehicles like "1x ~ 4x M35 truck" or "1x ~ 4x M50 Water tank",
if you wish "Supply Car Column" I can add it.

But I don't know what / how amount trucks made a column in Vietnam Era or other battle areas by US Army.
I think making a set of 10x ~ 20x trucks with 1x or 2x Guntruck and 1x or 2x Jeep.
Trucks list are
- M35 truck (Hood covered)
- M35 truck with M105 cargo trailer (Hood covered)
- M35 truck (carrying infantry, opened)
- M50 Water tank
- M50 Water tank with M149 "Water Baffalo" tank trailer
- M35 Guntruck , 3x Minigun
- M35 Guntruck , M45 Quadmount of 4x 12.7mm
and other default cars like Jeep.
Please suggest your ideas.

And.... I don't know about....
M50 Water tank was made a column with only tanks?
or
with mixed with M35 cargo trucks?
Title: Re: western Artillery and truck , trailer
Post by: max_thehitman on June 30, 2014, 06:18:45 AM

That sounds like a good idea. I like it.
The water tank  is always necessary for the well being of the troops. They need water to survive.
But the water-tank wagon can also be used as a fuel tank.
Title: Re: western Artillery and truck , trailer
Post by: western0221 on June 30, 2014, 08:16:03 AM
If max_thehitman can help me in skinning, I will add one more variant M49C fuel tank.
How are you?

M49C isn't only a tank, it has a dispensing hose in its left side and the hose is usually wound round and round.
It's a bit funny car.
Title: Re: western Artillery and truck , trailer
Post by: max_thehitman on June 30, 2014, 10:15:49 AM


Yes, you can create as many as you would like to have, the only problem is the time I must have to paint them.
At the moment I am working long hours in my job, and I need a little more extra time to finish painting those
other trucks when I get home.
The painting is coming along OK, but I must test each one of them in the game, to look at the model parts so the colors
are matching with other parts. This takes some time to do, but it will be finished.

If you wish to release the vehicles to the public now, it is ok. You can do that.
I will later post the skins for all of them when I am happy how they look. They are great 3d-models, so they must also
look good in their new skins.  :)

I've recieved and seen max_thehitman's skin (first version of 1 variant) in game, that's awesome!
I understand how he is trying hard to research and draw skins for my 3D models.

I decide to wait him.
His excellent skin works will show you big surprise.

Title: Re: western Artillery and truck , trailer
Post by: David Prosser on July 04, 2014, 05:14:25 PM
Good idea SAS~Malone. Can I suggest a yellow truck or two; and a light grey car. Many local government vehicles are yellow. Some US Navy soft skins were painted light grey. And maybe a yellow bulldozer. The US ambulance could be re-sinned as a delivery van. Maybe cream with black mudguards.

cheers

I'm importing some Vehicles from "Theatre of War" and my first work is UK Universal Carrier (Bren Gun Carrier).

But now I'm facing a strange problem.
ToW's Universal Carrier has 3 skins for summer/desert/winter.
And I use all of them into IL-2 1946 and set technics.ini to use by map attributes.

Though in "Stationary Armor" and "Stationary Object" , those skin changing work well,
skin changing is ignored in "Armor".

Here is a winter map screenshot.
