    I hope the designers of the blitzkrieg games don't mind their tanks being used! :eek:

    None of these sprites have been taken from any other game!

    This is all original work.

    A Tiger tank is a Tiger tank etc etc.

    As i have said in an earlier post the guy who does these sprites and graphics has spent over 9000 hours on this work.

    We have many aircraft sprites in work that you will not find anywhere else.

    Very nice! I like the Sprites too - now each countries units look different. I also noticed a change in color in political view - i think i like that a lot too.

    Now, when will the Italian mod come out? :cool:

    Hi Mussolini,

    I will find out and let you know when we are due to release the Italian mod.

    We also think that the political view colours are much better than the standard vanilla HOI2 ones.

    Glad you like them.

    Hi Mussolini:

    At the moment it is planned to release the Pictures as DMP Mod N° 19 and the Models as DMP Mod N° 20. This means January (for DMP 19) and February (for DMP 20) next year.

    Sorry for the wait, but at least you know they are currently in work.

    Hart, do you guys plan to add French units to the regular HoII mod list? Keep up the good work!

    And the USA...i think the team is German, and Stuka is German for Dive Bomber perhaps?

    Hi Hawkeye90,

    Yes all major countries will be done eventually.

    I will ask the guys who are working on these mods and let you know when the French mod is due.

    :)

    It does say Stuka, but that is just a generic term that was used for dive bombers.

    No, there are no plans to do this.

    All the mods are now geared towards HOI2 Doomsday.

    DD mod v16.0 is the DMP mod for the French units, ministers and brigades etc.

    I believe there is a tool for converting the DD graphics to standard HOI2, but i am afraid that i do not know what this tool is.

    Hi Hawkeye,

    One of the DMP members Jaegerfeld has added some instructions on our site for you.

    I have also added some comments, but i have never used this program myself.

    Have a look and if you need any more help please don't hesitate to ask.

    :)

    Here is an alternative rebel sprite that uses a pirate flag. This makes a nice change to the standard sprite.

    :)

    Hi Joe,

    The ship sprites are pretty good!;)

    I think the ships are probably the best sprites. Glad you like them.

    :cool:
