Yes, you can display the correct trees on the map in 5CC to make screenshot or ovm with trees.
Its under the "edit" menu. - to get the correct trees corresponding to the coding, the requirement is that that your elements file used with 5CC contains the sprite index numbers.
And in "layers" menu show trees need to be checked ofc.

Hello

Life kept me far from computer those last days.
This evening I manage to find some time so I can post 2 maps with trees on them.

And the last one for today
For those 2 last maps the idea was to modifiy exisiting winter maps in summer maps.
But it is not so easy when you cut and paste to follow the existing features of the original maps
then you get your inspiration which drives you somewhere else.
Those 2 last maps are not yet frozen I may still modify them a bit

Cheers

The maps look very good with the trees overlayed! - Izyum32 and Moscow1SE are my favourites so far. Interesting that you converted the winter map to summertime and also resurrected the burned houses:) - I think as it is now it will play very differently to its winter version, wich is a good thing.

This thread may look not in its place but .......
I will continue my work on CC3 maps and specially finish what I started but .....

Is there any body in the community playing Armoured Brigade.
During lunch break I spent some time on Matrix forums and this game has some similarity with CC :
bird view
Sprites
data base
multiple possibility for mods .....
all things we are familiar with

I will wait still a little bit but I may try a go and buy it ......

I had the same question. Schnellemeyer came to the rescue. I lost my HDD in the meantime but you should be able to find it here: SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Men of War Assault Squad 2
There you will find this shortcut: mowas_2_ed.exe

Hi Guys,

First of all I would like to thank you for all the positive feedback I got so far on my work.

There are a couple of things I did since my last E mail.
I have change the names of maps under contruction.
They will be named MINSK
I wanted to have a more Russian looking name but as we are limited to 8 letters or digits MINSK gives me the opportunity to make 999 maps ...... Rolling Eyes
I currently have 10 various maps under process in various stage of coding.
I will update you shortly when somes will be 100% coded

Cheers,

This is a map I have been working on converting from Call to Arms to Close Combat. - Call to arms has the same GEM 2 editor as the Men of war series of games.

Fine looking map Schnellemeyer!
Is the map editor suitable for WW2 era maps as well?
