Disk Cross Soft Vehicle Mod 2.1 - June 2013 (Easy Install)

Edit: The version 6.0 game patch overwrote a couple of files in version 1.0 of this soft vehicle mod. I have attached version 2.1 of this mod which has been updated for the latest game patch.

2.1 includes a couple of extra vehicles, like the Bren Gun Carrier and Soviet T-20 Komsomolets; and a few other minor improvements to modded vehicles.



This mod is designed to be used with the ‘vanilla’ OOB, and can be installed mid-game with no OOB or security issues

It replaces over 60 soft vehicle icons, focusing on Germany, Britain, Soviet and USA, but you’ll see changes in many other nations. About a dozen armoured vehicles have also been improved or have camo added, with the focus on Britain.

2.1 Sample Icons


Icon Sharing
SPWW2 uses a lot of generic icons for soft vehicles. Those generic icons are often shared by several different vehicles, sometimes from different nations. For this mod to work with the ‘vanilla’ OOB it can only change existing shared icons, it cannot add additional icons.

Example
The US 2 ½ Ton Truck (GMC CCKW ‘Jimmy’) uses the same icon as the US Ammo Truck and the British Austin 30cwt. I decided to use a new Jimmy icon, as the ‘Deuce and a Half’ was one of the most prolific and well known trucks of WW2.

LBM Pictures
Several different vehicles may also share a picture. The mod also includes about two dozen modded lbm pictures, for improved quality, or better consistency for shared pictures.

Sample Pictures


Files

This mod replaces 21 icon shape files:

Icon0000.shp
Icon0005.shp
Icon0006.shp
Icon0007.shp
Icon0009.shp
Icon0019.shp
Icon0021.shp
Icon0022.shp
Icon0023.shp
Icon0032.shp
Icon0034.shp
Icon0036.shp
Icon0039.shp
Icon0057.shp
Icon0058.shp
Icon0059.shp
Icon0075.shp
Icon0111.shp
Icon0112.shp
Icon0119.shp
Icon0121.shp

This mod installs a backup of the original shp files, so you can easily revert to vanilla icons.

This mod replaces 26 lbm picture files:

Pm00046.lbm
PM00401.lbm
PM00406.lbm
Pm00496.lbm
Pm00667.lbm

pm12536.lbm
PM12828.lbm
PM13025.lbm
PM13106.lbm
PM14063.lbm
pm16077.lbm

Pm30240.lbm
pm30249.lbm
PM30256.LBM
PM30257.LBM
PM30286.LBM

This mod also installs a backup of the original lbm files, so you can easily revert to vanilla pictures.

I made a few small edits and released 2.1

2.1 changes the LBM picture for the US Weasel from the M29 to the M29C (amphibious version)



I also improved the turret and main gun for the Cromwell CS:
