Alternate Counter Art

Bill Brockman and Ozgur Budak



Here’s some excellent work done by the late Bill Brockman in collaboration with Squad Battles veteran Ozgur Budak.  Along with a new look for the Allied and Axis soldiers, many of the heavy weapons have been given a new look.  Some really nice stuff here.   Download.

Unit Bases Mod

Bob Bannermann

BB has created a set of unit bases in 2D100 and 2D50.bmp modes that make the unit bases appear more visible by lightening their shades. Good for those with a touch of farbenblinden such as myself. Download

Eagles Strike 2D Counter Art
Thomas Wulfes
Replaces the counters in Pacific War with some cool background artwork. This is present in the 2D zoom in view only and present for all nationalities. Download
.
Eagles Strike Vehicle and Unit
Ozgur Budak and Frank Harmon
Ozgur’s best work hands down. As with the Advance of the Reich Vehicle mod, this also replaces many of the unit box vehicle graphics for ES with new vehicle graphics that are present in the Vehiclebox.bmp. Counter graphics remain the same due to the fact that the level of detail desired is not possible with the images offered in this mod at the reduced level. Images are shown are of lower quality than those present in the high resolution version of the mod.This package also offers new unit artwork and includes a new Units.bmp, unit boxes, leader boxes, and vehicle boxes for all nationalities included in the stock version of Eagles Strike as well as those that have been added by the Allied Powers add-on mentioned below. One DOES NOT need to run the modded version to use this unit art package.The additional graphics are just there for those who use the add-on.Ozgur intended his work to be viewed at the level of quality that is included in his original high resolution version of his work. This is now available for download. The version in the “all in one package” is of lower quality than the version mentioned here.

3D Vehicles 100 Graphics Mod

Da\/illan
Here’s another new mod by Da\/illan that replaces the stock 3DVehicles100.bmp file in the Eagles Strike Map folder. Back up the original first just in case you should ever want to restore it and then extract Da\/illan’s file into the Map folder.  Here’s what Da\/illan has to say about it. “The ES_3DVehicles100.bmp is a 3D mod for Eagles Strike (BETA version) that changes most, but not all, of the American and Axis vehicles. The frequently used ones are there though. It is currently only viewable in 3D normal mode.If there is a good response, then I will keep adding to it, make it usable in 3D zoom out, and add a newer terrain mod also.” Download

EAGLES STRIKE EUROPEAN ADD ON
.

Ozgur Budak & Frank Harmon

THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL HPS SUPPORTED ADD ON. This is just something to hold Squad Battles fans over until a legitimate WF-Allied Forces game becomes a reality. The 2D only add-on is a fully functioning addition that (though limited) still opens numerous possibilities for gaming with ES and is quality workmanship. This add on does not effect any existing data (other than graphic), and only adds to the weapons/equipment that all ready exists. No 3D graphics exist. This is the final version of this add on. Nothing else will be added as of 28 April 2003. All that may happen is a few tweaks to existing add on material, but that will be the extent.

Combatants added

Canadians Complete 2D Package w/10 soldier images and rally voices.

English ArmyComplete 2D Package w/10 soldier images and rally voices.

Other Goodies

Alternate Unit and Vehicle Art, Art for Gebirgjagers and UK Colonial Troops, K-9 dogs, new turn boxes, .303 British wav files for Lee-Enfield, new Waffen SS uniforms (winter camo, summer camo, slightly wounded and smoking troops, etc), new images for MAS 36, Bren LMG and Lee Enfield (imported from SB:KW), .OOB files for the very strangely organized Italian Infantry Battalion, French Infantry Battalion of 1940, and British and Canadian 1944 OOB’s done by Wild Bill Wilder.

Notes

No aircraft or heavy guns have been added. A few early war weapons, French tanks and a few early German Tanks already exist in the stock OOB for early war actions. ( I will be writing an article soon stating which weapons in the .oob editor are German weapons that have been captured). If other armor is desired in a scenario, use lend lease Yankee tanks. There are only two scenarios as of this moment.

This add on also does not effect playing scenarios with the units originally included with ES and it “coexists” and it will cause no issues if  you have the mod installed and your opponent does not. The only issue you will confront is if you attempt to play someone a scenario containing these custom weapons or units and they do not have the add on installed. Otherwise the game stands unaltered.

Note-Please read the installation instructions.  Although a fairly easy task it has no margin for error. Failure to install this add-on correctly will destroy your computer…lol only kidding. However, it will give you a very funky looking game.
