Hello, thought id share some info on my WIP mod for IFA2. Keep in mind this mod is being designed for use with ACE and COSLX. Also, I could use some help on this project, so if anyone knows modelling, scripting/config, and mission making, I could really use your help.

Done and to-do list (Subject to change) : 
 
[General]

Change US faction names (Done) ("US Army, US Tank Troops, and US Air  Force" are now "U.S. Army, U.S. Army - Armored Force, and U.S. Army Air Corps)
Make new menu and loading screens (Loading screen done)
Fix GUI bug.
Update and modify default missions. (Not priority)
Add new sound objects and Music.

------------------------------------------------------------------

[Weapon Related]

Fix sounds for the following weapons : Thompson, MG42. (Done)
Fix M1 Garand loading (Done) (Now able to load the Garand Mid-clip, as in reality)
Fix Grenade explosions and names. (Done for US and German grenades)
Fix or add placeholder explosives for Engineers. (Done)
Fix BAR fire rate (Done) (BAR in-game had a Semi-Auto fire mode, which makes no sense)
Add Thompson Semi auto fire rate. (Done)
Fix HE round explosions. (Explosions seem to be too large)

------------------------------------------------------------------

[Vehicle Related]

Change "M4A3 Sherman" name to "M4 Sherman". (The model in game is an M4 Sherman, not an M4A3, as noted by the extra armor plating in-front of the drivers hatches and lack of a gunners hatch)
Change vehicle speed to be accurate. (Some vehicles are too fast, such as the Willy Jeep)

------------------------------------------------------------------

[Infantry Related]

Add new ranks. (Technician 5th Grade added for US Infantry)
Add NCO and Officer stripes on M1 helmets. (Done) 
Change US Infantry names (Done)
Retexture US Infantry and equipment. (Done)
Change loadouts for US Infantry. (Done) (Added correct amount of magazines for weapons, changed most Officers to use Thompsons instead of Carbines, removed flare pistols and added a 1911 as NCO and Officer sidearm)
Add Assistant Machinegunner and Ammo Bearer classes.
Remodel US Infantry.
Retexture and add new West-front German units.
Change German loadouts and names.
Change US rank insignia to show up on both arms.

------------------------------------------------------------------

That's about it, im currently VERY active in working on this mod, and feel free to point out things that still need to be changed or fixed that I missed (If anybody still plays IFA2 that is.)
If anyone wants pictures ill gladly throw some in although theres not much changed texture wise yet other than my US infantry retexture that ive altered a bit. Also keep in mind this mod was DESIGNED TO BE USED WITH ACE AND COSLX, so some things that may be working in the normal mod may not work with ACE active.  Also, adding new units, such as different infantry divisions, armored divisions, etc., will come after I remodel the infantry themselves, then you can count on mostly all the US army divisions, most of the german ones, and some of the Russian ones too (although my knowledge of Russian organization and units is fairly limited) and maybe even some Airborne [smile].
