Hey guys I really want to make some blitzkrieg missions with the US side.  I've made a few with kju's templates for German and Russian and he mentioned something about changing the modsets to represent US.  To be totally honest I really don't know what to change and what to change it to.  Would anyone be so kind as to explain specifically what I have to change in order to get a US vs German blitzkrieg going.  I would really appreciate it.

There are already US troops in Iron Front. No mods required.

Joe read his first sentence.
Of course theres US troops in IF with the DLC but they are not in a Blitzkrieg mission.

Gerhartrtfo ask kju to clarify what he means.

Hi Joe, yes I know that, I have the DLC.  What I'm asking is what exactly do I change out in the templates kju linked to make a blitzkrieg mission US versus German instead of it being Russian versus German.  He said something about changing out the modsets but after looking in them I really don't know what to change and what to change them to.  As far as I know there are no templates for a blitzkrieg mission, such as for Colleville, that would allow me to make such mission.

I know kju mentioned something about getting some made but I don't want to pest him with it right now.  Especially since he's most likely busy dealing with the conversion and upcoming patch.  So I thought I would ask if anyone knew how to convert these so that I could replace Russia with US.


EDIT: Sorry Gunter your post wasn't showing before I wrote this.  Do you think he would be able to answer and not too busy?

Check .\configuration\MODsets\*

And you need to integrate them into:
./configuration/MissionParameters.hpp
./source/init.sqf

For details check (needs DH acc).

I've had an account there for quite some time.  The website wasn't loading for me until just now and sadly I need to get some sleep before work.  I don't know why it wasn't loading for me I tried all night and now it's almost 8:00am here.  I'll check it out later and thank you for your help.

Ok I understand if my questions are getting frustrating to you, believe me I'm getting frustrated trying to figure this out lol.  All I see are things referring to Wehrmacht and Redarmy ( German and Russian ), I don't see anything referring to US. Do I need to change East_IF_RedArmy to something like East_IF_UsArmy and then change all of the soldiers, equipment and vehicles to match?

It is an example how to add new modsets. The rest you have to figure out yourself. Unfortunately I have no time to assist you in this.

I completely understand kju, I work at night, alone and responsible for supplying water to 35,000 people.  This winter has been total hell with a windchill of -43F on one of my nights and pipes breaking not only in the plant but all around the village.  I do have one question if you could answer.  Where it says "East_IF_RedArmy" do I change that to be anything I want or does it need to be specific.  I've looked in all the missions and this is one of the things that has me stumped.  Well that and know if I have to use GUER for US or if it can be East.  If anyone knows the answer could you please reply.

East_IF_RedArmy is just an identifier/name which the init.sqf refers to when selecting a specific modset.
Both the A2:CO and A3 version of Blitzkrieg should handle any side/faction for both sides modsets.

I've tried but totally failed so I think I'm throwing up the white flag on this.  If anyone has any clue at all on what are the exact changes I need to make it would be GREATLY appreciated.

Work has kicked my ass too hard this year and the stress is high not only for me but for all of my fellow workers.  Just to give a clue on how bad it has been.  Our frost line is 32" and we've had to jackhammer almost 4' of frozen ground to get to water mains.  Within 30 days we've had over 17 main repairs ( lost count ) and resident lines freezing with a count going up from 31 homes and businesses.  I've had crews putting in 17 hour shifts and dispatch is relentless with call outs.  I'm tired of laying in snow getting all wet and having my clothes freeze on me because it's been below zero.  I'm tired of people coming out bitching because they don't have water and it's their own fault in the first place for not leaving the water run.  It's hard to get people to understand that the has been driven deeper into the ground and just because the sun is shining it doesn't mean everything is hunky dory.  ( sorry small rant but it feels good )

I don't know if it's because of all the crap that is happening this winter but I'm stressed to the maxed and trying to figure this out is making it worse.  Some people relax by drinking some by smoking, me, I relax by playing games always have and I just can't figure this out.  So if anyone has any and I mean any idea how to get this to work so I can have a template to work with please speak up.  

Thank you and if you are being hit hard this winter, please please PLEASE leave your water run at a small stream, please.  Especially after a cold snap when the temperatures start getting above zero.  It's all science folks.
