Combat Mission Mods
8:33 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

CGO has posed an article which goes into detail about 3rd-party modifications being made for the 3D WWII sim Combat Mission. Big Time Software, makers of the award-winning independent title, originally kept the art in the game to a minimum, so it could run on a variety of lower-end machines. They have let the game's community add new, higher-resolution textures to help improve the game's look, though it will definitely need beefier hardware to run. Here's more from the article:

Beyond the MDMP mod sets, the CMHQ site is remarkable for its various player tips articles and after-action reports (AAR's) that can help CM gamers to learn the game's tactical nuances. The CMHQ section with the largest growth, however, is that for the "third party mods" where the graphics/sound files modified by individual CM gamers are collected. The third party mods are labeled by CMHQ as "unsupported," however, and neither BTS nor the CMHQ managers promise to resolve "compatibility" issues with any of these mods if necessary. So to repeat earlier adviceóback up any files that are to be replaced before applying the mod files. Some of the major categories for mod files in the thidd party region are:

  • vehicles
  • "winterized" vehicles
  • infantry uniforms
  • buildings and other 3-d terrain
  • grass textures
  • game interface
  • special effects & miscellaneous
  • sound effects
  • Check out the rest of the article for more details on the many different types of mods you can download for Combat Mission. The article also includes instructions on how to get mods up-and-running with the Mac version of the game. If you've never tried the Mac demo, head over to Macgamefiles and grab it now; Combat Mission has gained the highest user reviews ever seen here at IMG, and remains a popular download on MGF.
