With a lot of work. Basically you have to copy the bergetiger and it's abilities, edit any and all requirements which may be faction specific, place the bergetiger into each of the desired faction's ebps and sbps, past the sbps line into the spawner of the building you want them to build from, etc, etc. and then finally copy, and edit each ebps of each vehicle you want to be recoverable, the edit or create (if one doesn't exist) the wreck files of each vehciel so their recoverable, and refrencing them to the ebps vehicle copies and their sbps, then refrence each vehicles ebps to the wreck, and then finally write a pile of critical actions for each vehicle. I spent a few hours the other day just looking into it! It seriously is a lot of work, i'd guess about a full days straight work (without testing) just to mod it all for the other 3 factions. I've written a tutorial on how to make a wreck recoverable, if your lucky i'll get around to typing it out and posting it on the net in the next few days. Trust me on this, it isn't just changing a few variables, i'd say it'd take 20-30 mins per vehicle, depending on how fast you work.

Well, that would be weird, a Bergetiger at the Allied Side. But you can make a squad or vehicle having the ability.:)

I've been thinking... it would be cool for like bits or something to have a commando that they can only buy once that could take out a tank and leave the tank alive just kill the men inside, and then have a squad take it over... but you would need to make alot of new stuff and would take some time...

Well adding the Bergetiger is infact the better option, and captured equipment was used where necessary (or available) by all major nations involved. Plus it would look worse giving it to a different vehicle as the ability lifts the vehicle wreck off the ground, so unless it's a vehicle with a crane on the front, it would look weird. I've already looked into making a Bergepanther and a Sherman recovery tank, but without cranes it would still look weird. The only inaccuracy ingame is that the Bergetiger does live the wreck up, which the crane wouldn't be able to do, and IRL recovery vehicles like the Bergepanther and the Sherman RV were used to drag the damaged or disabled vehicle off the battlefield or recover it from the ditch, etc. to safety where it can then be repaired.

Yeah, as known on the Relicnews Forum, that's something that comes back often.. Relic really messed up the part with the Bergetiger.:o But not that I don't like it, because my KT's and Jagdpanthers can be recovered:D

I had thought about making a squad of American special engineers who can recover destroyed vehicles

ya i was going to try to make 1 or something to that effect but had no clue how to make that ability or anything like that... so pretty much i failed... i can barely adjust squads and give them abilities.. i don't even know how to change the ranges of their weapons...

Well i've posted a tutorial on how to make vehicles recoverable over on the RelicNews Forums, thats the majority of the work done there, adding the bergetiger ability to a squad and removing/changing some of the requirements aren't that hard. Although perhaps you should call them Sorcerers instead, cus humble engineers can't make a 50t wreck float up into the air and turn back into an operational tank again. :lol:
