Realistic Modifications to some of the single player Maps for Brothers in arms. Realistic weapon disperstion for Germans (so no platoons with only stg44s) -Added 30 cal and mg42 machine gun emplacements. -More solders in some levels -Realistic number of enemy tanks and increased tank difficulty while reducing the number of tanks in certain missions. --MORE!!!! See the Readme.
Jmoney's Realistic Missions v1
FIRST be sure to back up your map files (the one's that these replace) to a different folder just incase you want to game on them again.
-For Road to Hill 30, copy the maps included in the rth30 folder into your BrothersInArms/Maps folder.
-For EIB, copy the maps included in the EIB folder into your brothersinarmsearnedinblood/Maps folder.
This is the next step towards Realism in Brothers in Arms road to hill 30 and Earned in Blood. The included single player maps have been tweaked for more realism.
--Germans have realistic weapon distribution. In the original game, for some maps each German would have an stg44 or an fg42, which is not accurate as these weapons were rare and were not given to an entire platoon. Therefore, based upon the German unit and division, the realistic proportion of weapons are in the maps. So fg42s and stg44s are more rare. Fg42 only will appear with paratrooper units. The primary weapons were the k98 and the mp40. A few panzerfausts are given to soldiers as well, along with the walther p38.
--TANKS! Brothers in Arms was heavily criticized for having "tank boss levels", where you would face 3 or more tanks throughout a mission. As we know, it is highly unrealistic for a single squad to go up against three or more panzers with any success. Therefore, for some of the missions, excessive tanks have been removed, and the existing tanks were just made more difficult. In this way, even a single tank is a challenge. So no more multiple hit and run panzerfaust tank boss battles!
--Mg42 and 30 cal. In some of these maps there are more mg42 that give the feeling of a mobile mg. Thus, certain squads will have an mg42 without any sandbag protection, to cover flanks, etc... 30 CAL!! That's right, certain maps that were designed to fend off waves of Germans and where US forces have set up a CP, will have 30 machine gun emplacements that either YOU or your squad can mount.
--Some of the maps have extra solders added to your squad.
I want the maps to surprise you, but certain maps have features that you would do well to know ahead of time:
Alternate Route: YOu will notice that you have a bazooka team member, use him carefully and he will help to destroy the anti tank gun before your tank crosses the bridge.
RipePickings: As soon as you leave the farm house you will notice TWO 30 cal machine guns, in the field. These are set up to help you and your squad defeat the german wave counter attack that will come at the end of the mission. On my youtube video you will see a demonstration of this. Youtube.com
CHurch Tower: This will remind you of saving private ryan..Because to your right (near Mac) in the tower, you ail lsee a 30 cal machine gun resting on the concrete rail. It will help you to fend off german troops and it can be aimed at the German troops who will later attack from the rear of the church.
ALSO, as soon as the mission begins, you will notice that on the ground level (where you squad goes), I have placed a 30 machine gun facing in the direction of the first germans who attack. Therefore, be sure to have your troops mount it and it will really help. (They will only mount it with rendrocs warzone command mod).
Recommended mods: This play WONDERFULLY with Rendrocs Warzone command mod.

I recommend playing it with the following mutators added:
jmoney CustomWeapons (1 shot kill, more accurate fire rates, etc.)
CombatZone mutator (for some maps)
BattleZone mutator (for some maps)
I also recommend the real recorded gun sounds mod, by me:
*you may have to scroll down before you see them.
Also, here is a great weapon skin mod:
