Default The New ScenHack Utility.

Can we actually change the icons of units within the scenario? If so, this opens up some wonderful possibilites for both WW2 and MBT; regarding hypothetical, proposed, or prototypical equipment like MBT-70, 76mm Armed M551s, et al; which really can't be justified as being placed into the ORBATS because they were either paper studies or not accepted for service.

The only problem then would be the Icons; would you guys at SPCAMO put in hypothetical equipment into the default Icon lists if we did the artwork?

Mark,

ScenHack (especially in the FULL CD WinSPWW2 edition) is a wonderful tool for the scenario designers.

cheers,
Pyros

1) Yes - it is possible to change the unit icon id number. (remember the scenario weather, if different ones are used, although using a turreted icon id pair instead of a turreted, or grunts instead of vehicles etc, may be problemetical.

2) You would probably need to persuade Don it was worthwhile. Otherwise, you would need to issue your own supplementary SHP files for your "modded" work, as usual.

Cheers
Andy

It's also handy for placing different Icons of the same type of vehicle. For example, there are a number of Tiger Icons in the shp files. If you wanted to you could easily mix them into a formation to add variety to the camo schemes

It's also handy for adding grounded aircraft to a sceanrio.
