yea so i don't mod or no how to do it. so this is a request. the allied machine gun squad is kinda annoying. it doesn't appear to be authentic at all. so if somebody could make the gun a .50 or browning .30, that would be sick. and if the skins of the support crews can be changed to something like say the rifle man skin that would be cool too. XD

A request? I'd suggest you should perhaps learn to mod, i did, and so did every other modder. There's a good and very helpful modding section over at Company of Heroes – RelicNews Forums (although they frown upon requests there too), and between there and Google, you'll be able to find the tools and tutorials you'll need to learn to mod. BTW, If you did some research, you'd know that the M1917 ingame is very authentic, and saw wide-spread use by the US Army right through WW2, and furthermore, it is a Browning .30cal. Also, you should also knwo that while it's possible to change the stats of a weapon, at the moment it's not posisble to change the visual appearance, or import animated models to the game.

The M1917 certainly did see plenty of use, but the M1919A4 was issued down to the platoon level unlike it's heavier water cooled brother.

So replacing the M1917 with a deployable M1919A4 may be something for some mods to consider.

The air cooled .50 caliber M2 Browning probably was not much heavier than the whole M1917, and was issued at a similar level of organization.

An option to build costlier but more powerful tripod mounted M2s would be a nice addition. Perhaps with the special ability to load API ammunition.

well i'm working on the mod but i'm having trouble with corsix's. if you read my other thread you'll know wat i'm talking about. i went to those other files but i'm lost again. but i was going to give the allies the .30 thats mounted on the jeeps. and i was going to change the skin of the the support gunners because i just plain don't like it. i was going to have riflemen, rangers, and airborne be able to have their own heavy weapon squads.

Well since you can't import new models into the game, good luck making any visual changes to the weapons. You can't just port the .30cal form the jeep over to anyone, as it's designed specifically for the jeep, and even though it's possible to change the weapon's anim properties to use that gun's mesh, it'll still appear and behave as if it were on an invisible jeep, you can't steal something from one unit and try to use it for somethign it wasn't intended for, it just won't have the animations, so it won't sit right, won't animate right, and most likely the crew won't interace with it properly.
