The Commonwealth Troops & ModTag Project

Darknight_Canuck’s Magnum Opus

This project is condensed into seven (7) archives:

DKC – CMBN Campaigns (broken into 4 sub-archives) [22 Campaigns]
DKC – CMBN Scenarios wModTags [175 Scenarios]
DKC – CW Uniforms
DKC – CW Vehicles
DKC – Portraits, Ranks & HQ
DKC – US & German Vehicles
DKC – US Formations & German Uniforms

There is A LOT of work here from other community mod-makers (see the included notes) and I will try to credit everyone for all their original work. If I miss someone, it is not intentional.
Includes mods from: Aris, Mord, Wims, Vein, EZ, MJK, NikMond, Jacquinot, BenPark, Damian, Quintus Sertorius, Tashtego, Umlaut, Egger & Saturnin.

This is no longer just a Commonwealth uniforms and vehicles mod (though that is the main focus). I decided that I would make the mod easily accessible by adding extensive ModTags to every scenario in CMBN that I could find (and which had at least semi-historical units), which makes the mod application seemless. This was the theory…though campaigns posed a more difficult problem, since I do not have access to the uncompiled campaigns (where I could simply add ModTags). For campaigns, I have layered the mods based upon the battle being fought and included notes on when to swap the included .BRZ files (thereby, not spoiling the unit composition for the player).

All CW uniform insignia and vehicle markings are based upon my extensive accumulated research, and therefore any mistakes would be my fault alone but it should be noted that there were sometimes various versions of insignia worn by units at different times/places, so there is room for some variation; also, this is a game, and sometimes graphical additions are made based upon best estimates.

Note: This mod will work perfectly fine with the standard interface, but I would suggest using Juju’s Interface mod and Bergman’s vehicle silhouettes (they are what I use) as there are 1 or 2 graphics from those mods that will make an appearance.

Feel free to include the units with any scenario/campaign releases or add ModTags to these scenarios to take advantage of them, just please remember to credit the community members noted above for their work.

Enjoy — Darknight Canuck [DKC]

  1. Thank you for this phenomenal amount of work. We appear to share similar obsessions. I have similarly mod tagged all the scenarios but in some instances used different mods, such as adding formations badges to Juju’s portraits.

  2. Thank you very much for all the work done!

    But I have a little problem. I understood what to do with companies – everything works for me. But I can’t figure out how to deal with scenarios. I threw all scenarios into the corresponding folder, but starting the game they are not displayed for me and I cannot select any of them. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Hi Hardy, I’m just another user, but I opened the .brz files and pasted the scenarios-files into the scenarios folder, replacing the originals.
      Hope that helps

  3. Thanks for doing this! This is an incredible project; I cannot imagine how long this must have taken.

    My question: The Kampfgruppe Engel Campaign was edited at some point because the original became corrupted and certain vehicles would not carry over. Is the campaign included in this mod the revised campaign or the original?

    I’ve looked at the Scenario Depot, and this scenario is listed, but there is no download for it.

    Thanks again!
