This is my first Soldat Mod, though I've been playing for a long time. Any comments would be nice.


World War II Soldat Modification
Weapon changes:
USSOCOM = Colt .45
Desert Eagles = Dual Lugers
HK MP5 = Thompson SMG
Ak-74 = MP40
Steyr AUG = Sturmgewehr 44
Spas-12 = Winchester
Ruger 77 = M1 Garand
M79 = Panzerfaust = 30
Barret M82A1 = Gewehr 43
FN Minimi = B.A.R.
XM214 Minigun = Browning M1919
Flamer = Flamethrower
Rambo Bow = Rambo Bow
Flamed Arrows = Flamed Arrows
Combat Knife = Bayonet
Chainsaw = Katana (Japanese officers did carry these back in WW2)
M79 LAW = M20 Bazooka
Frag Grenade = Steilhandgrante (Potato Masher)
Cluster Grenade = Cluster Grenade
Machine gun = MG42

There are also a ton of weapons sounds, so many that I forgot to keep track. The "item pickups" and the Interface graphics have also changed. I worked really hard on this Mod, so I hope you enjoy it.

I've also added my own short, action packed map, "ctf_OmahaB" with Wayoints included. The Red team is the German side, Blues are the Americans. The Reds have the major advantage here, so the recommended team count is:
Red Team - about 10 players/bots
Blue Team - about 20 players/bots
The Red flag is behind the bunker, the Blue one is under the farthest boat. Both are difficult to get..and to escape with. Good luck!

I like the map and the mod doesn't seem half bad either. But the katana seems out of place.

December 27, 2003, 9:14 pm
Wow, that is amazing for your first mod! Thats probably the best WWII mod I've seen, and there has been a few....

December 27, 2003, 9:27 pm
change the katana and this mod will ROCK

December 27, 2003, 9:32 pm
nice job dude u smart! i would love to play the ww2 mod

December 27, 2003, 9:46 pm
Holy [:-censored], the map looks amzaing! However, Karia has already made a really good World War II Mod! Good Job though, looks good!

December 28, 2003, 12:07 am
Thanks for the comments everyone. I did see a couple WW2 Mods floating around here, perhaps I'll make a more original one next time.

As for the Katana, I didn't know what weapon to put in that existed during the war that could replace the Chainsaw, so...yeah.

December 28, 2003, 12:34 am
I say just make it a bayonet or leave it as combat knife, but change looks a little...

December 28, 2003, 2:10 am
You messed up the titles on the mp40 and stg44 they are reverse. Your interface is nice. Fix the gun titles and everything is koo.

December 28, 2003, 2:11 am
Btw, why does every ww2 mod I see use the panzerfaust as the m79? it shoots in a straight line just like any other rocket launching gun. There was an actual grenade launcher or rifle grenade used by the allies.

December 28, 2003, 4:02 am
CardBoardWarrior:...I did change the knife to the bayonet both "in game" and in the menu. True they look the same, but not if you compare them.

Sharpshooter: Whoa, thanks for seeing that! I didn't even notice. I'll switch the gun names and post the changes some other time.

I think people use the Panzerfaust because it looks unique, at least that's why I did. I was going to use the Mark V:[URL]
But it's pretty boring. I also thought of the rifle/nade launcher, but it would be weird if you could use the launcher but not the rifle, so Panzerfaust was my choice.

nice mod, still not as good as Henchin and 7olik's WWII mods

December 28, 2003, 2:59 pm
If only it was an original idea.. *sigh*

December 28, 2003, 4:06 pm
What can i say....really not bad for ur first mod, but i still luv henchin mod

December 28, 2003, 4:14 pm
Nice mod. I like seeing new mods, it stops me getting bored of looking at Soldat. I think you should change the jet icon on the interface, it looks out of place next to a nice health and ammo icon :/

December 28, 2003, 5:24 pm
Pierce, I love your map I have been playing it but what I think would make it better is to make it a Inf map and have the people up in the bunker just defend and not come down, if you know what I mean.

December 28, 2003, 5:30 pm
I made the weapon switches and I also switched the sounds and the menu pictures, everything should be fine now.

I know I didn't really change the jet picture. I like the current one.

(EDIT)Hitman: I seriously thought about that. I originally had the teams switched so the Red team would have to get the objective from behind the Blue's bunker. But I found that it was extremely one sided, the Red team could never get the flag and the Blue's never went anywhere, they just camped at the machine guns and it was just not fun (heh, like the REAL Omaha Beach). So I scrapped that, switched the teams around, and made it a CTF map so both sides would have an equal chance at winning.

I guess you could make it an INF map if you really want it to be though.

December 28, 2003, 10:05 pm
Yeah, but the thing is, is that I am really [:-censored] at making maps (in fact I can't even make them) So I was wondering if you could do one for me PLEASE!!! All you have to do is change the waypoints right?

December 28, 2003, 11:30 pm
very cool mod, one of the best ww2 mods so far :P

December 29, 2003, 12:23 am
katana is good, if you remember right, many WWII generals would carry a sword at their side (dont know why... maybe they thought they were cool...)

December 29, 2003, 10:18 am
no they had swords because they dident have money to buy so many wepons... i think it was something like that...

December 29, 2003, 1:23 pm
o_O My goodness what a nice fluffy mod ^___^
Good job, everything looks so cool :D

December 29, 2003, 2:14 pm
Well...now i play with this mod kinda started to get used to it and i really pwn with m79 in this mod, so i found my perfect mod...at last.

I think you're talking about the Civil War..?

Unless you're maybe referring to the Japanese.

December 29, 2003, 6:09 pm
I'm glad you all are liking the mod. Thanks for the nice comments.

I believe Japanese officers carried swords in WWII, I'm not saying they used them though. Just for decoration I guess, or to show rank.

Hitman: Sorry, but I'm actually working on something else right now. I would have to change all the waypoints for both teams to make it an INF map, and I consider waypointing the hardest part. I don't mind if you can get someone else to waypoint it for you though.

December 30, 2003, 6:24 pm
K, thanks anway. Also seeing as 'M' is back ( http://archive.forums.soldat.pl/topic.php?topic_id=9955&whichpage=1 ) I'll try and get him to waypoint it.

January 17, 2004, 4:49 am
Japanese officers generally carried them for the same reasons we did in the civil war,
plus, they had a weapon to use in place of bayonets. In fact, the germans and I believe some Americans had sabers on their sides. I have one.

January 17, 2004, 12:52 pm
watch the moie wind talkers.......plenty of katanas......oh yea a good idea would be to replace the german weapons with jap weapons like stg44=japaneese type99 machine gun mp40=mp18 and so on..... and and btw for the mod......ooooo pretty...lol very nice work

January 17, 2004, 5:35 pm
that looks so cool mod :D have to download it :)

January 17, 2004, 5:38 pm
hmm.. why my reply didn't come here? anyway that mod seems so cool that i'll must download ot :) good job!!!

January 18, 2004, 12:21 am
A mod that goes great with all those failed attempts at omaha beach! Sweet!

January 24, 2004, 5:11 am
coool mod. katana is nice.

January 26, 2004, 2:05 am
They had swords, because officers had had swords since 15th century and probaply before...

February 16, 2004, 2:10 am
Great mod, almost as good as Henchin by Kairi (in my opinion).
I really like the Katana, it makes me want to use the chainsaw more often!
Almost all the weapons you've modified are cool and are pleasant to use.
The only thing I don't understand is why you didn't make your Omaha map an INF_.
Still amazing mod, good job!

February 16, 2004, 6:36 am
Someone should create more maps for WW2 mods ^^

February 20, 2004, 3:46 am
Good job! That's probably the best WW2 mod I've seen so far. Really great!

June 5, 2004, 7:21 pm
This topic being a bit old, still a nice mod.

And about the Katana thingy: the Nazi Officers where given japanease Katanas when they recieved a special rank or had done a great deed(A nazi-deed). They where only used a ceremonial and decorative sword, to honor the Japanease. Never used in combat, but adds originality, since officears actually had those.

June 6, 2004, 9:24 am
quote:no they had swords because they dident have money to buy so many wepons... i think it was something like that...


the generals could probably get a solid gold gun if they really wanted... for officers it was a cermonial type thing...

the jap officers had katanas but the allies had sabres I'm pretty sure...

they still have swords for ceremonial parades sometimes... atleast here in Australia they do...

but yeah you are right in a way...

outdated cavalry with swords tried to charge tanks because the military was that technologically outdated or the distribution of weapons and equipment was incosistent so you would have crack troops with the latest you beaut stuff and then you have the cavalry... with swords...

lets just say... mow, mow, mow, mow, mow, mow...

Actuallly the Panzerfaust didn't shoot straight, it shot in a curvy line, somewhat like the M79! As for the KAtana Japanese soldiers used to carry them for extra protection/or in case they found themselves out of ammo! lol, The more you know!
