Blitzkrieg 1985

As you may know Blitzkrieg 1985 was a project started by Soviet Man which basically had a similar storyline to CSLA's and that was intended for Blitzkrieg II. The MOD was never released but many of its units were used by Soviet Man and Ice Bear to create CSLA. Ice Bear sent me a package containing the original units, most of which have already been implemented into our MOD. There are a few models still remaining that should be included soon once they are revised, updated, given a final skin and so on. A few months ago, Nephilim posted on Blitz Srbija some old screenshots from that project, which I am sharing here. It's always good to remember where you came from!

If anyone knows Russian and is willing to translate the footers, his (her) help will be more than welcome!

























More gameplays! + Some news...

It's a nice surprise to find out there's still a few gamers out there playing our dearly 16-year-old game and, specially, CSLA. Attached you shall find some videos uploaded by Zefir on his channel. He has also uploaded a bunch of GZM 9.0 gameplays, which may also interest you.

Oh, by the way... This past July I presented my MSc thesis and I finally became an engineer (in Spain we call "ingenieros", literally translated as "engineers", those having a BSc plus a MSc and "ingenieros técnicos" those having a BSc only). In september I am starting my first job. This means that I should have some spare time through out the year to work on the MOD, although other affairs will come out for sure. Anyway, no more exams, study at home an so on... This should help. : )) My friend gagarin is AFK (away from keyboard) for now, but I hope he will be back soon.

 

 



Objects (II)

A new barrier as well as a concrete mixer have been added to CSLA. I did both the objects and the 3D meshes they are based on. Fasya, from the GZM team, did the skins for them.


New objects

Here are some new SimpleObjects I made for CSLA 3.0. Both the 'models' and 'skins' were made by myself, Kevin. Once the models are mapped and painted I take screenshots from them in several different positions in order to obtain the objects in the game's isometric view. Finally, I pixel-by-pixel task is performed in order to remove the background.

[TDA-CMC] Mil Mi-1 Helicopter Patch

/!\ This is not part of the CSLA project

I have been playing TDA (Cuban Missile Crisis/The Day After) lately and I noticed two glitches in the recon Mil Mi-1 Helicopter. It does not affect the gameplay, but it makes its flight look quite bad. The bugs/glitches were as follows:

    - The main rotor did not pivot properly.
    - The secondary/tail rotor was not visible from one of the sides.

I did not make a new model but corrected the existing one. I hope it turns out useful for you :).
