Faces. Faces, Laszlo... Faces. Bad GTA3 ref. there. I love all the new weapons, maps, and skins this mod has recently gotten. It's really come to the point where a lot of the battles actually look like WWII footage. That said... The faces of soldiers are still generic DICE crap, and this severely detracts from the "look" of this mod, at least for me... Wouldn't it be just badass to play a late-war map such as Seelow Heights, as a middle-aged Volksturm conscript? Or how about playing Berlin as a Hitlerjugend member? Or Stalingrad as a pale-faced, emaciated Landser? And why stop at the faces... Why not vary the heights of the soldiers, to indicate their age? Or give them a hunch or something else to indicate they are sick/wounded/starved? It would be awesome if this was randomized somehow, so that there would always be variety in the ranks. Just something I've been thinking of, since playing BF for the first time.
One word, time... This would take some serious time to redo all these things, monopolizing ressources that are already pretty much used for other things.
They got a new face for the Germans (the desert mask thing), didn't they? I mean, it's kind of getting odd when you see American, French, and Polish troops all having the exact same faces o_O.
Oh I understand that Nostra. I'm just saying, when the dev's have finished all the important stuff, and can't think of anything else to add, it would be nice to make new face skins. And yah, those DAK skins add more realism to the desert maps. I love 'em.
i think that bf42 can't do height changes.
