I am new to Company of Heroes and was surprised that the Jagdtiger was not included in the standard Company of Heroes game. MrScruff’s Jagdtiger is a great addition to the game and it’s a shame what happened to him. I mean no disrespect to his memory or his friends that contribute to this forum with the following so I hope none of this is taken out of context.
Has anyone carried on or considered working with his Jagdtiger?
I see in the posting - MrScruffs "Skins and Models" REWORK OF A MONSTER (06.12.09) he had plans to further improve his model and skin textures. I thought it would be really neat for someone who has this kind of talent to carry on his good work and keep this unit fresh in the game. With all the new units being introduced through mods, it would be nice to add extra details to the Jagdtiger since it was a work in progress. I see the barrel of the old model has been rounded for the Eastern front Version.
Here are some suggestions -
The 9 road wheel version (Herschel), lengthened chassis, tracks moving in time with the road wheels, hole in the end of the barrel, extra details on the hull like a commanders hatch that is animated , hooks on the side of the hull that the spare tracks attach to, rear MG post with gun emplaced, Zimmerit coating, tooling like shovels, tow cables, towing shackles, main gun support bracket, full side skirts. Last but not lease Otto Carius. Just joking about Otto
I have no idea about the time it would take to carry out this kind of work. I would love to be able to do this kind of thing myself but have no idea how and where to even start. I hope this opens up some great ideas and gets some attention to the Jagdtiger. It was after all the heaviest tank destroyer in the war and my personal favourite.
