Exclamation Re: WinSP MBT: Das Reich

Good evening Fellow WinSPMBT Fans,

After a long hiatus, I am pleased to say that I am back.

I've moved countries, gotten married, bought a house, adopted a dog and done quite a few other things besides.

Somewhere along the way, I lost my login details. Recently, I found an old email address for Shrapnel Forums and was fortunate enough to be logged back in.

I have good news for you. There is a new version of the mod - compatible with Version 16 of Win SPMBT available.

When I have all the files together in a neat package and they are loaded up to Drop Box (link generated etc). I will post it up here along with some screenshots of what to expect in the latest version.

The installation process, I am afraid, will still be old school - read the readme and follow the drag and drop instructions. Take the good advice of the devs and create a copy of the vanilla game for the mod.

It will only work with Version 16. I am sure that there is a newer version of Win SPMBT out, but I've not had the time to update everything again and to be honest we are already maxed out as far as space is concerned for mod content.

I have a rudimentary Japanese OOB, which I am working on and I may create and Italian one at some point in the future.

The write up of all the changes and additions will take a while for me to put together but I should have something ready for you all in a month or so tops.

In the meantime, I am sorry that I've been away for so long.

Watch this space for new developments.

Best Regards,

RecruitMonty

It's good to be back.

As promised, I'm going to load up some screenshots.

First up, a look at the E-50, known in Das Reich as the Panther II



Here you see the whole series from Ausführung A through to E (in the light configuration, found in OOB 44). Note the changes to the later model turrets and the inclusion of obsolescent models, which have undergone a Kampfwertsteigerung (old chassis, old turret, but new gun, optics etc).

Next we have the Löwe Ausf. B1 and B2



The Löwe is included in Das Reich as a lighter and cheaper alternative to the E-75. Less common, but still built in sufficient enough numbers to warrant upgrades into the late 60s. A variant will feature in one scenario, which will be made available with the mod.

Here we have the first three models of E-100 with the Henschel and Adler turrets



Known in Das Reich as Kaisertiger, they play the part of the mainstay of the Super Heavy tank class.

Here are the rest of them into the 21st century





Moving onto the sea, for a moment, here are some landing craft



Some gunboats and fire support for amphibious operations



Staying on the water, here is a screencap of the starting line for a force of marine infantry in an alternative Indochina scenario



These Marines are supported by Amphibienpanzer and Amphibienschützenpanzer.

Here is an example of an Amphibienpanzer IV's stats



The marine landing forces of the Reich in the mod are modelled on those of the French and American armies IRL.

Finally, for today, some Jagdpanzers



A glimpse of the Leopard StuG



... and some E-100s



In the next few days, I will be posting more screencaps to show you all what has changed and what to expect from the new version of the mod.

When I have all my ducks in a row with the mod files, I will host a copy on DropBox and post the link in here.

In the meantime, enjoy the picture show.

Here are a few more screencaps.

From the in-game encyclopaedia (a great addition to the game, btw), a close up of the StuH Leopard



and one of my personal favourite units to have worked on, the StuG Leopard 1



Some colour for the Marines

Good evening, Gents.

As promised, some more screencaps.

Tonight, I want to showcase a scenario, which features a lot of armour, which will be published with the mod. As you can see there are a good mix of new German units as well as a surprise in the Soviet line up.

The scenario depicts an armoured clash between the Soviets and the Germans on the Caucasian Steppe, in the winter of 1962/63. Part of a series of Stalingrad 1962 - 1963 scenarios.

Why Stalingrad and why in the 1960s? Good questions.

I found that re-imagining existing scenarios from SPWW2 and porting them into SPMBT was the quickest way for me to deliver good and reliably playable scenarios to you guys without having to reinvent the wheel and possibly miss the mark entirely with a scenario that was broken.

The scenario here, is an exception of sorts, as it uses a pre-existing SPWW2 map, but is an example of my own scenario creation. Albeit inspired again, to some extent, from the very challenging Prokhorovka scenario.





Finally, for tonight, here is another scenario, which you might recognise - Totenkopf Attacks. Summer of 1963.



Expect more screencaps soon.

Best Regards,

Recruit Monty
