hmmm.... no footprints in the game, but they do make extensive use of decals, for gunshot marks, blood splatters etc. So it may not be too hard to implement in someway. (for the talented modders anyway )

Also implementing skies and sleds might be a bit tricky? I think also that there should be very limited amount of weapons but the men should be talented. "Yksi mies vastaa kymmentä ryssää" - kind of meininki. Manholes = Poteros, Trenches, etc.

Weaponry:
Molotov-cocktails
Suomi-machinegun
Mora (have you noticed "Finnish knife" in weapons already?)
Mines, a lot of mines
Panssarinyrkki (Panzerfaust)

Characters:
Rokka
Susi
etc. characters from the movie "Talvisota"

Ideas for storyline:
At the beginning Germany should act as an ally and at the end of the campaign they would turn into enemies. "Lapland War"

Some history: http://hkkk.fi/~yrjo...ml/summary.html

Idea for skies and sledges:

-skies could just be an object as they are taken of as combat starts. It would then just need to be placed at the "spawn" point.

-sledges might be done as a crate or as it was used as movable maghine gun position... might be moddable?

http://www.saunalaht...62/weapons.html

Site contains some basic weaponry that  was used in Winter war.

What people say about Contiuation war mod?
Or maybe we should talk Finland in WWII. This should include also Lapland war.

Toivotaan, toivotaan!

Tuskin minusta ainakaan mitään hyötyä on ennen kunnon tutoriaaleja yms.

I hope, I hope!

I wont be worth anything before editor tutorials etc. are published.

Now this is really interesting!

Joo, mutta kuten tuolla todettu on, pitäisi ensin saada tutoriaaleja, ainakin karttan tekoa monimutkaisemmista aiheista. Ja itsellänikin on toinen peliprojekti meneillään, mutta don't count me out. Seurataan kommuunin kehitystä ja pidetään idea mielessä.

Kannatan mieluummin hallittuja lyhyitä sarjoja. :)

Briefly in english:
Let's see how community evolves and keep this idea in mind. Hoping to see some great tutorials in future.

I prefer if these forums remain in English, or at least keep the posts bi-lingual.

But.. if this mod is going ahead, and the group doing it speak finnish then I'm happy to create a forum area to discuss this mod and give you guys control. in that case I really wouldn't mind if you had finnsih only stuff... it would be up to you.

Hi all, this is my first post.

I just got to say that this idea sounds great! Just the other day I was thinking about something like this to Silent Storm and then I nothiced this poll.

A couple of ideas for the mod:

Characters: As sniper Simo "valkoinen kuolema" Häyhä is a MUST. Here's some info about him (written in Finnish) http://guns.connect.fi/gow/hayha.html

Weapons:
As the Finnish sniper rifle "pystykorva" with scope and without it, for Simo here.

And as for map ideas, Raatteen tie is also a MUST. Although we will need tank models for this.

I realy hope that people will make this mod some day. And if this looks like it's gonna happen I will try to help as much as possible. I've been only testing the editor so far so I can't help with that (yet), but I do like the juicy idea of the Winter War. So c'mon people let's get our wise heads together and make this happen!!
