Since I resumed the work on CSLA a little bit and I felt motivated by the videos I recently found (I don't do very deep searches, but just write down 'CSLA Blitzkrieg' or something like that in the web browser), I decided to go on with my 'investigation' and check if CSLA 2.0 had been tested else where. And I found this (It's not the first time it happens [click here]). It seems like a big (and, to me, a little bit weird and difficult to understand) dynamic forum and I assume there's no way to get in touch with the author (indeed, the link itself directs you to some sort of web storage and not the original website itself).
Just in case, if the author ever reads these message, let me say thank you for your work and encourage you to share your maps with the Blitzkrieg community.
Model extrated from Soviet Man's database. The UV Map, the animations and other minor corrections are mine. The skin is gagarin's.
The model should have been released last summer, but it lacked one 'death skin', so I waited until it was completed to make the release. The series include a red civilian model, a military version and a military ambulance version.
Today I found some Youtube gameplays posted by 전략게임작전사령부TV on his channel and I was really happy to see people still play CSLA 2.0. There's even 30-minutes long 2vs2 game in the multiplayer version of the 'Motherland's Defence' map.
As we were
re-working the Leopard 1A1A2 originally done by Soviet Man (rotating
wheels, small (tiny) details, volumetric caterpillar, etc), gagarin
pointed out that the Leopard 1A1A2 we had been using from CSLA 1.0 was
indeed a Leopard 1A1A1 because it didn't feature the light amplifier PZB
200 (a passive aiming and observation instrument). That's why I added
to the original model that detail and we kept the old one (with the new
rotating wheels and so on) as the 1A1A1.
So now we have the 1A1A1
and 1A1A2. The gameplay difference is just the 'Sight', which is
smaller in the 1A1A1. The problem about doing that kind of details is
that you invest many time on them to be legal and accurate, but then
they are barely seen in-game... Plus I kept the original CSLA skins and
we added the green ones done by gagarin for the same reason I stated
when we were talking about the Gepard. The 'Green Leopards' feature an
additional frontal appliqué armour, and that's why they have extra HP
and some extra 'front armour'.
We want to thank our fellow comrade boltz for adding a link to our blog on his website. We recommend you to visit it if you're a Blitzkrieg fan, since there you'll find many resources (seriously, if you haven't been there yet, close this blog and get there now!) (Click on the banner to get there)
At the beginning of the summer gagarin asked me to create one 3D model
for a street lamp (it's basically a cyilinder with several subdivisions,
not a big deal) and he painted it. As he requested, I have turned that
lamp into its 2D object like I did with the straw bales. I hope you like
