FinnWars Fanpatch 2
Hello fellow modders! I decided to tell you about a fanpatch project that me and couple of other members of FinnWars community have been starting to develope. The patches goal is to make FinnWars stand out from other mods and of course to make it more fun, realistic and immersive.Here are some things that we have already made:-Tweaks to weapons
FinnWars' weapons are already kinda balanced and as realistic as BF42's engine lets them to be. But still there was some fixing to do with field of view zooming and deviances.
Also one of our developers fixed the angle of FinnWar's Panzerfaust.-Alternative Assault kit:
I decided to make a new kit for FinnWars. Now players can choose from 2 weapons when they want to play as an assault unit.(Click for a larger image)
The background image for assault kits is missing for Russians and Finns atm (Germans have one but its just a placeholder)
. I've also planned to recreate the whole spawn interface.-Ice-cold lethal water:
Now soldiers take instant damage when swimming (or standing) in freezing water. The swimming is normal in summer maps.-Some little tweaks:
Like changing Soviet ticket colour from blue to red and Finnish ticket colour from red to white.
Also we've added a "clock" around the tank icon to help spotting other tanks. If I can find a way to create new radio commands, I will local radio commands for tank spotting.-Changing team names
Now the team names can be changed. In the current version of FinnWars, the team names are "Fin - Rus/Ger". I've changed to this patch so that the team names will alter with the map. As for an example, in a Lappland war-map the team team names are Finland and Germany, and in a Winter war map the team names are Finland and Russia.Planned features:-A new map, Battle of Bengtskär:
Battle of Bengtskär was a desperate fight between weakly armed Finnish coastal guard and overpowered elite Soviet soldiers in a tiny island. It resulted in Finnish victory. The only problem in creating this map the lighthouse model. There are so many stairs in the model that bf42 is crying for mercy..-A new main menu and spawn interface:
I've learned how to use meme-files and I can make new menus but I don't know if I want to. It would be a nightmare to do with the menu editor which comes with Battlefield MDT..-New weapons:
Finns really need an alternative assault weapon. Now in Continuation war-maps Finns have two Suomi KP assault kits. Russians have PPSh-41 and a AVS-36.
I'm currently developing an anti-personnel mine but I'm not sure if it's possible to develope.. I have to try.-Other things that I've not remembered to add in this list.Videos(Some content you may see in them may be obsolete)

Also if you have suggestions, like what we should add or alter in the mod just tell!
