There is the question - Is it possible to process the available in-game models of vehicles and infantry? Because if so of the available models can get a few more items with minimal effort. For example, StuH42 from StuG-III...or 57-mm ZIS-2 from the 76 mm ZIS-3. Incidentally, StuG-III from game this is not StuG-III, it's StuG40 (incorrect designation modification SPG)

You would have to ask Troc about that.

Sorry to sound like a dick, but have you guys even made any groundbreaking progress on this yet? You keep debating about the state of the game and the politics surrounding it, but I'm not seeing any progress on your project. Please, get into maximum overdrive and get it done. Every day that goes by kills the game even more (to the point where, one day, no one will even care if mods are working on the game anymore. There is some interest right now, but not for long).

Dear Gunter Severloh and the whole IFR Team,
I just wanted to say thanks for all your efforts and time you all put in this great, 
battered game. 
I though I will never join a IF community anymore cause of some AWAR developers..... I think you all
know what I mean..... but you proofed me wrong and I am very happy about it (special thanks to 
Tayuk
for this forum).
I followed this thread a while now and got 2 ideas.

1. I am an hex and counter wargamer (ASL) and boardgamegeeker, what I thought was how about to
add it on kickstarter and buy the official license for it, game/engine, that is what you can do if you
want to sponsor your own boardgame or also pc game. If you don't know kickstarter here is a link 
http://www.kickstarter.com/ don't get me wrong but I think that could be a idea to get a fully legal chance to support that game, please don't blame me it is just an idea.

2. How about make something like Mek Tek did they release updated verions of mechwarrior 4 (link to their FAQ: http://www.mektek.net/forums/topic/45911-frequently-asked-questions-faq/) they made a download manager where only registered members can download the game update it etc. there you were able to controll the downloads, as example: I own IF and the DLC so I download your download manager and want to play the community updated version of IF and your manager ask me to verify my games and I have to give in my serials and can then download IFR. You could also connect this DLmanager with the mission repository, as stated above it is just an idea.

I just wanted to help you a little with these ideas, if I could do some modding, scripting, ... that would be a much better help but guys I try it since ofp times (Bresseb tutorials) but no I don't get it sorry and there are also the kids, the wife, the dog, the job you know what I mean .
I wish you all the best for your future plans, keep it up.
Greetings  
xPuSx 

PS: Sorry for my bad english.

Some interesting ideas you have got there actually xPuSx (by the way, your english isn't that bad). Doubt we would get the money to buy the game via kickstarter though, don't think we quite have that large of a community.

I do still hope that at some point in the future they will release a patch that unlocks the game so it can live on via modding.

why not see if Matrix game would be interested in buying it and opening it to the Mod community.  They are sort of like the Island for misfit games and rescue classic computer wargames.  They even still run Close Combat games that have been updated and they did something similar for Scourge of War.

Jinzor, thanks for your feedback, what is it that you want to hear that we already haven't stated?
Did you not read my post a page back, #66 about the current status of the project? --> http://ironfront.forumchitchat.com/post/show_single_post?pid=1277455211&postcount=66

Getting it done as you would have it, is possible then not possible, as it depends on alot of things that need to be figured out, tested, and setup.
To give you some news on where we are currently, we are waiting on Troc to get back and report on his status of the mod as he was working on clearing up a bug.
In the meantime the rest of the team are going over ideas, and  setting up the download system, and as XpusX stated in a question/example

this is a system we are similarly doing. We need to test the mod out first amongst the team after we get through a bug,
and then determine the best approach and what will work for a download system, and then we need to test that to make sure everything is working properly.

   On another note the progress your looking for cannot be released or shown til we have something to show, in general the mod is already
in a position where we can add new content to the game, and patch Iron Front.
I would like to show more evidence of our progress but as said theres nothing for us to show you, as there some things needed to get sorted first.

On another note consider that Troc is the main developer of the mod, the remaining of the team cannot really do anything in terms of adding new content,
and any fixes to the mod til Troc has the bug he had ironed out and a copy available for us. He is also working on this with a certain amount
of time, consider work, and other real life things, as the same for all of us.
We are planning when we do release to have a couple of new things added to the mod, and possible a fix or two just for the release,
in the meantime we are working on various aspects related to the mod to ensure security, and an easy download system.

The mod gets released when its ready, if you have lost interest then thats your problem, but the mod will soon be available, we will post soon a few screenshots
of our progress of new content added to Iron Front. Modding takes time so please be patient with us.

Gunter Severloh I think you got me wrong, I don't want to see anything screens or something else
I just wanted to say if I had the skills in modding (but I am really talentless in that case) I could help you much better then only these two ideas
and I don't have lost interest, I am very sorry if I have annoyed you that really wasn't my intention.
Greetings

Xpusx, you really need to read the post i made more thoroughly as I wasn't replying to you, i was replying to Jinzor, and then posting in
general to everyone to give the news we did have.
Also you or anyone else is not annoying me or the team by what your saying, so please dont read the posts with thoughts in mind that that is how we are thinking.
If im annoyed i will tell you, but I/we dont need words put in our mouth.

In general.
The one thing i wont tolerate and possibly ban members on this forum for is negativity around Iron Front, and the project, if anyone feels that iron front
is a waste of time, dead, ect,. no one plays it blah blah, then I see no reason why your here, the forums here are for the fans of Iron front hence the title of the forum, for those that
want to play the game, and are interested in the IFR project, interested in WW2 then this is the place to be at.

@ xPuSx - I am pretty sure it wasn't your post that caused any annoyance


We are all waiting and looking forward to some news, but as has been said before these things won't happen over night and we have to be patient. Rome wasn't built in a day

Take it easy, guys. We can't expect a Mod in such a short time and it really needs lots of hard work! Now it has been a miracle since as we know, IF was told not to be able to mod before. Giving those devoted Modders more time. They are doing for no money from AWAR and DP!

As for the patch the game - to start is to correct the name of vehicles. Sherman M4A3 on M4, Halftrack M3 on M3A1 ...and then some animation - the ZIS-3 gunner is not looking through the scope, and the hum drum instruments. And on his knees in the real world, he did not stand.

  
And for the future - would like to see in-game M4A2 (the Red Army), available in the game for the M4 were never in the Soviet Union. AWAR wrong with the model of the tank, the name had to fix a patch in the near, but...

IFR Update
Hello everyone!
Little news I can provide atm, but to give you something, i know all of you are waiting patiently, and are probably
getting to the point where it might seem like this mod project wont happen, or seems dead, but i can assure you work is being done.

Currently Troc being the main dev of the team is working with another member not part of the team, they are going over various aspects
on how to get the mod to work in the correct way that will not step on any officials toes if you know what i mean, and as well as setting up
the mod in the best way they can based on what they know will and have found to work.

What is taking so long is the fact that Troc, as well as many of us do have real lives outside of the project, and obviously that takes priority first.
Other then what Troc and another is working on which is the main aspect of the mod, the rest of the team are working on various ideas,
and going over what we know will work and what is realistic for the mod in terms of download, and security aspects related to download, from there
we have setup a list of possibilities suggesting a certain path we thing will work for when Troc reaches that point with the mod.

Right now its really the tricky part of this mod is working out the details, so i hope you all can understand the position and would be patient.

What you all can do if you can is to keep posting your ideas, and requests for the wish list as well as if not more important, reporting bugs, and
or problems you find in Iron Front and the dlc, so that when the mod is ready we can get working on some fixes right away.

Just to note, and this is something for you all to look forward to is, and i might have mentioned this already but when we do release the mod
we will have some new content, as well as a couple fixes in the mod.
We all have alot more time to work on the mod and related aspects on the weekends and that is usually when we get the most done, so all
i can say is sit tight, i would like to foresee that the mod should be available sometime this month from where we have gotten so far.

Thanks for your patience and support, and if you have any questions, and or suggestions, let us know.
