Also, any chance of putting the Grizzly in the USMC OOB?
Well, the Grizzly sure is on my to-do list, but editing the base Abrams I have is not that easy. On my plate for the mod issue after the one in progress is modding the USMC OOB and reworking the US OOB (I redid the USSR from the ground up this time, these things take time). So yeah, it will probably come up, but I dare hope it won't be the awesomest addition in either the US or USMC OOBs

Regarding mods, what I do is install several completely separate versions of the game. You can keep one clean for PBEM with the regular game, and mod as many as you want in parallel, as long as you take care to rename your shortcuts accordingly.

Now a stupid question,which file do i download that?
I'm not sure I get your question.
To download the files, click on the links embedded in the titles of each paragraph (the underlined part), which should send you to a Box.net page, where you just have to click on the big archive icon to start downloading the .zip pack with the bitmap icons inside.

Once this is done (or if this wasn't your question) you may want to integrate them into the game. For this you will need both MOBhack to update the OOBs and first and foremost SHPed to create or modify icon archives.
You will find a quick walkthrough of SHPed in this older thread and more details from Don in that one.

Have fun!

If you're interested I could give you a list of the icons "needed" for the USMC OOB

Hi PlasmaKrab,

I'm a big admirer of your mod and in the meantime, since the latest 5.0 patch came out I modified it a bit to make it playable again - it's great to hear you're working on a new version!

On an icon related topic...Andy/Don...you way want to consider stealing icon #3250 from WinSPWW2 for the LVT 3 Bushmaster (OOB 13 Unit 688). And both lbm #1953 and icon #3250 for the LVT 4 Buffalo (OOB 13 Unit 180).

PlasmaKrab, if you're inclined winter and desert icons aren't available for the LVT 3/LVT 4.

@Suhiir, these days I try to create my own icon sets from scratch, but I will try to look into the existing LVT icons.
If we're just talking new color schemes of existing icons, Don can do that at least as well as me in the official version.

Meanwhile, some fresh sets:

The near-ubiquitous ACV/AIFV/TIFV/KIFV/MIFV/whatever in most existing versions:
-Basic APC with MG and armor shield
-Basic IFV, 1-man turret with 25mm autocannon
-IFV with newer GIAT Dragar 1-man turret as fitted on some Turkish vehicles
-IFV with Cadillac-Gage 1-meter MG turret as proposed to Turkey by FNSS
-Basic APC with pintle-mounted ATGM, Milan on the basic version, Dragon on the KIFV, HJ-8 on the MIFV
-Dedicated SPATGM with folding TOW mount
-Higher-end SPATGM with folding ITV turret as on the US M-901
-Other SPATGM with TUA TOW turret as used in Turkey
-Open-top SP mortar, 81mm or 120mm
-Vulcan-based SPAA with regular M-163 open-top turret as used in South Korea
-SP-SAM with Aselsan Atilgan heavy Stinger mount as used in Turkey

Camo schemes as follows:
-Basic green, tan and white
-NATO 3-tone for Netherlands and Turkey
-Temperate MERDC camo for South Korea (without rear hull fuel tanks)
-Tropical splinter 4-tome camo for Malaysia (can double as Pakistani Talha APC in a good light)
-Generic high-contrast desert tan-brown

A follow-on to the AIFV developed by FNSS of Turkey, the ACV-S has to date only been ordered in small quantities by Malaysia in mortar variant.
Proposed versions that have made it to the prototype stage:
-Basic APC with MG and armor shield
-Basic IFV, new 1-man Sharpshooter turret with 25mm autocannon
-Improved IFV with 2-man LAV-30 turret
-Support vehicle wiht KBP Bakhcha turret as offered at IDEX 2005
-SP mortar with Longhorn semi-auto 120mm mortar


Specially for the Cold War 2020 mod, the ill-fated TH-495.
A German export design from the late 80s, not developed for want of markets, but planned (unrealistically?) for production and service in Germany and Canada.
Included several planned and imaginary variants:
-APC with remote-controlled HMG
-IFV with OTO-Melara HITFIST turret
-IFV with Kuka E-4 turret
-SPATGM with Kvaerner Eureka ALT TOW turret
-SPATGM with remote-controlled pedestal mount for TRIGAT (fictional)
-SP mortar with Finnish NEMO automatic gun-mortar turret (fictional)
-SP-SAM with ASRAD-D mount (fictional)
-SP-SAM with ADATS turret (fictional)

Hope you enjoy them, stay tuned for more!

Wow! Very nice. These icons are really excellent. I will download a new copy of your Mod asap. It has been a while since I have had time to play.

Stupid question - how do I use these icons? I want to add those CV90 variants, for example. How can I do that?

Somewhere here on the forum there is a whole post devoted to icon editing. Type in "icon editor" and see how you do. The programme you would be using is the "Shp editor" provided with the game.

Here, have a look at this:
