I just want to thank Aetius for making this Kreta mod for play, as this is one of the fun mod that I have played. I have to admit that it's up to the level of GJS and BoB level. The AI was nuts on the vet mod, just like in CC4. Razz

One thing I would like to mention is that the Mannlicher-Schönauer inside the game sounds a little quiet. Just more quiet comparing to the other rifles and pistols. I don't know if I should put it under bug or somewhere else, so I put it here.

Any thoughts of expanding the Kreta mod? cause it's so fun on CC4 it's just a shame if it ends here. Crying or Very sad

Another thing to other people who wish to learn more about Operation Mercury, check this out "The 11th Day - Battle of Crete". It's a documentary about the battle on Crete.

Thanks for the kind words Someuser, i'm glad you like it.

I'll add the quiet Mannlicher sound to the bug list.

No real plans of expanding the mod, although the desperate fights in the Rhetymnon and Heraklion sectors would make great mods.
The time required to make new maps and/or stratmap is a too big project for me to take on.

Another great documentary on the battle of Crete is the BBC Timewatch episode "Hitler, Churchill and the paratroopers" with a lot of veterans from all sides being interviewed.
I hope the BBC will re-run this episode someday.

Can only agree with Someuser! Great mod, excellent AI!!! :ok2

Been playing all day now (one of the few good things of being unemployed: -Lots of gaming time...) never had such a hard, bloody and fun time. Me and my brave Fallschirmsjäger even got our nuts kicked a few times and I enjoyed every second of it! Smile

Only thing I've noticed is troubles scavenging. Parked a two-man Jäger team with pistols on a dead Recce squad for about four-five minutes, just to check after reading about it on this forum, and they didn't even attempt to arm themselves... Confused

(But that is a prob I can live with as long as the rest is so bloody good!)

^^^
CC Soldiers need to be "out of ammo" before they start scavenging weapons.
Even if they're only armed with lowly pistols...as long as the pistols have ammo...they won't pick up nearby MG34s Wink
Soldiers armed with only melee weapons will scavenge at the first opportunity.

SL...you sure that the guy wasn't carrying that pistol as his secondary weapon?
From a quick scan of the adb files...there's one German soldier type that carries an MP40 as primary weapon and a Walther P38 as his secondary weapons.
If not...then it must have been one of those rare moments. Our beloved CC soldiers behave strangely sometimes Wink

Aha... Thx again Squadleader. Smile

Guess that my brave Fallschirmsjägers have to fire at nothing to get better weapons then... Rolling Eyes

While I'm writing... Best settings for a vs. AI game in the vetmod? Just veteran/veteran, or should I check some of the boxes as well? (allways obey order, never act on initiative, full info?)

For CC4 Kreta...the only playable setting is vet/vet (as noted in the interface screens).
For best settings vs AI enable "always obey orders" and "full info" for AI.
When enabled "never act on initiative" tend to make the AI more passive...good for AI on defense scenarios...otherwise don't enable it if you want a more active/aggressive AI.

he may have been but he was one half (the living half Very Happy ) of a two man team who dtarted into a building where one of the guys with a lugar had just been killed. Because i was micromanaging his single man attack i was watching pretty carefully. Another thing that may have screwed things up was my inherant inability to read instructions (playing recruit AI vs veteren in the vet mod for germans)

Doesn't matter anyway, he got over his brain freeze and commenced firing on the shell shock creforce troops with his MP40

I'll check out the teams that should scavenge, a solution would be to give them only the "melee" weapon.

Thanks for the comments

With the risk of writing something really stupid Embarassed (I'm an old player, but a total newbi on modding...)

- Can't the pistols be coded as secondary weapons, or don't they scavenge if they have secondary weapons?
