Ok I'd like to know if you could make a mod that allows you to build barrels or other forms of light cover. And would you be able to do it in Vanilla CoH? Thanks for your help!:smokin:
Cuz i like light cover more for my skirmishs and because those plain old sand bags get ugly after a while
A better mod might be to have something with different elements of cover where essentially you could choose from different sizes and shapes, heights and depths depending on how low you go with trenches and still be able to have stuff fire from 'em.
I think if they were objects in some of the unused engineer build windows it could be a kind of cool set it and forget it deal. Balancing might need tweaking in build times or something.
yes it can be done like the concrete wall in my mod (dawn of conflict) you need to copy the sondbag file, change the entity.ext to the barrel's one and changer the defence to light cover
still sounds pretty unneccesary though. I mean, the sandbags usually gets blown to hell after a couple of minutes anyway :D however it might be useful to protect alleyways or narrow paths, but still... what army forces carries with them barrels to build cover with? a more reasonable mod would be to make engineers and such be able to CARRY barrels to specific places :) that would be awesome. use the terrain to your advantage, and build strongpoints with whatever junk that's available around you :D
That's why I like the idea of a mixture, cause any one defense type object may not be enough on its own for very long periods. I think one generic kind of combo for one of the engineering build windows could be a tank trap/barb wire combo. Instead of drawing a line of each and building separate, the line being built incorporates both in one go.
I find these two things especially useful to build first, long before crocodiles and other tanks that can go through them start to appear. I love playing defensive games with a lot of defenses, but I also understand the desire to try and speed up the process a little.
