Hi all,

I thought it might be a good idea to summarize the finished modding projects of 2020. I don't just mean complete mods but everything related to the modification of Close Combat games, including tuturials, updates, conversions, etc. etc. as long as it was finalized in 2020. It's a good idea to remind everybody that we still have an active modding community.
So don't be shy and list your finished work in a post below.


Wishing you a happy and healthy 2021!

Pete

Great topic to sum up 2020 from the Close Combat perspective.

I always have a bunch of unfinished projects laying around but some things actually get finished now and then:
In 2020 I finished:

- Stratmap tutorial for GtC/Pift complete with scripts and actions for Photoshop.
- a stratmap for OP Silver Bayonet a Vietnam mod for Panthers in the fog.
- Overview map mod with contour lines for Close combat modern tactics.
- The map "Mischeira" for Close combat modern tactics by adapting a map from another game.
- Converted tree graphics from GtC/Pift from 32- to 16-bit and made a terrain file to enable tree overlay for those games in 5CC.

For 2020 I did the following;
- converted CC5 Winter War to TLD
- updated TLD Bloody Omaha
- updated TLD Meuse twice

For 2021 here is what I plan to do;
- update TLD Meuse
- convert TLD Meuse to LSA by May 10
- convert CC5 ? to TLD ?. Might go straight to LSA.

2020 is probably the year I really came back to Close Combat. Have been absent for many years but usually kept up a minimal presence to keep things online here. As such the Close Combat Player's News where I kept track of all your mods and patches fell by the wayside for the past decade.

As for projects completed... With the team campaigns of GJS and Meuse we have a combined total of 569 multiplayer games played since 01 Aug 20. Of those we recorded and live streamed 481 which are on the YT channel. Some battles you can watch both sides. Have enjoyed watching both sides of a streamed fight on two monitors. The Meuse GC has been about 90% recorded, a big increase from GJS which was near 60% recorded. All these 40+ year old guys streaming and watching streams must make their kids proud!

For this next year I am hoping we can figure out a proper installer for the Steam/Matrix/GOG versions of all the mods. I would like to optimize the mods here by using a singular install method. This will make it easier for new players, old players, and hopefully increase how many people try mods.

I have not finished anything but as Mooxe, 2020 is the year of the come back (thanks to Viceroy and SchnelleMeyer). I will try to shape an old dream for this year : a new version of the Stalingrad mod!
The plan is to port the game to the LSA version with a new stratmap and 64 new maps. Dima will be able to say which changes will come for the datas. The mod will be released in 3 parts as the amount of  work is tremendous. You will be able soon to see and discuss the progress on this forum and on discord.

Yes that would be huge to get new standardized installer for Mods compatible with Steam / GOG versions.  That was the only way I got into CC mods was due to Real Red auto-installer about 20 years ago super easy to install had no experience with mods back then.

And that would be amazing Manoi if you and Dima updated new Stalingrad mod!  That was the REAL close combat. Perhaps with the smaller maps like what PJ did with Der Kessell.  

I would also like to see Sliterine/Matrix re-do the "classic" CC games with modern graphics and keep core gameplay characteristics similar to the original and make them all mod-friendly.  Especially CC2 and CC3 IMO

OK cool! - I see so we are waiting for Mooxe... - You could upload to a free file host service like Mediafire or Google drive in the meantime though.

Meuse and Stalingrad ported to LSA (and each with a new stratmap and 64 maps): if you guys can pull this off, 2021 is going to be an epic year for CC modding!
