As an Easter Egg i added a popular WW2 American song, that will be played at the end of Ardennes 3 mission when US reinforcements arrive.

Its a tribute to one of my favourites comedy movies "Baby's day out" from 1994. ;)

Hello everyone,

today i updated again the Norway 2 mission.

List of changes:

-> additional time-bombs placed in one of the storage buildings;

-> edited the mission text briefing to add more info about the objectives;

-> edited the mission video briefing to get rid off misleading informations about the requirement to blow up the antenna mast and laboratory simultaneously, as well as not being detected by enemy patrols;

-> updated list of mission objectives - now the 1st objective is described in more detail.


This newest Norway 2 mission update is included in the latest H&D Deluxe Ultimate Mod 2.8 version release uploaded on ModDB.

Enjoy! :)

Umm, why not just restore the boxes that the mission had originally? Didn't it have two boxes with 5 dynamites originally? πŸ€”

"as well as not being detected by enemy patrols;"
What do you mean?

Is sneaking through the forest an option yet? πŸ˜‰

Yes, indeed in vanilla mission there were two boxes - each with 5 time-bombs. I just checked. However, now i think is more convenient and obvious for the player to have them placed like i did. You just enter the room and see them laying on the boxes plus you can pick how many you want, not being forced to take 5 at once. Those time-bombs are also visible on the tactical map. I restored them, because one mod user from Discord complained that he forgot to bring enough explosives for the mission and he needed to use Panzerfausts instead.

By default the video instructor says: "We can move through the forest or along the trail through the rocks. It is important to eliminate guards without being discovered." In reality, eliminating guards without being spotted is not that important, because if we get caught it will not fail the mission anyway.

I just wanted to improve the Norway 2 mission but you are complaining as always. You are never happy with changes I make. At least I keep the mod updated quite regularly as long as i could. Just saying.

I wasn't complaining, I was simply curious.
I admit, that those boxes did look like they were simply part of the background, like those orange metal boxes and wooden boxes. Just there for show, and not actually interactable.

Again, NOT a complaint, just a suggestion, that objective 1 and 2 be swapped, as cutting off communication is vital.
And destroying the antenna after everyone is dead is, well, redundant. LOL.

I apologize if I caught you in a bad mood. πŸ˜•

Well, i also thought about making the Norway 2 mission more stealth-focused, but it should be done in a logical way.

I will try to find the best solution.

Hello everyone,

for the request of Myron i further updated the Norway 2 mission and made it more stealth-focused.

List of changes:

-> removed the minefield in the forest;

-> edited the mission text briefing to add more info about the objectives and new requirements for the player;

-> updated list of mission objectives - swapped the 1st and 2nd mission objective (now you have to blow up the antenna mast first);

-> now shots and explosions in the vicinity of main laboratory building will fail the mission (unless you blow up the antenna mast first). Shooting silenced weapons such Sten MK.IIS won't alert the enemy though.

This newest Norway 2 mission update is included in the latest H&D Deluxe Ultimate Mod 2.8 version release uploaded on ModDB. I also attached it below, however you will still need the mod itself to be installed first in order for this update to work properly.

Enjoy! :)

P.S. By the way thanks Myron for your continuous support, ideas for changes and feedback! Sorry for being rude, i just had an impression that noone appreciates my modding work and I'm just constantly criticized - when others people mods are also not perfect. Maybe H&D Deluxe Ultimate Mod is not the best mod out there (in my opinion Bertgold is), but i do what i can with the limited modding knowledge i possess. That's all.

Yeah, it is REALLY annoying how so few downloaders give any feedback whatsoever. One can't grow as fast without feedback. πŸ™

I've just looked at pictures of Bertgold, I really don't know what I am looking at. And I read that it's more about action than stealth. πŸ€”

My feedback and suggested is on the belief that you are supremely talented. πŸ˜…

Bertgold is basically an overhaul mod - replacing vanilla H&D Deluxe campaigns with custom ones. Its worth checking out, but in my experience its best to play it in coop instead of alone (because maps are mostly big with lots of enemies).

By the way thanks for kind words! ;)

BTW, I forgot, Ardennes 2, what music plays when you find the massacre site?

It plays the exact same tune you shared (both in my mod and vanilla game - i just checked in HDD Editor).

By the way i never cared that much for in-game music in H&D Deluxe - except maybe for some of the ambient sounds or music played when you complete objectives / finish mission / campaign. I find some of these annoying if played too often. It feels like the game sometimes punishes player for not paying enough attention about what he is doing and points out the obvious, lol.

In my opinion Medal of Honor Allied Assault has the best in-game music for a WW2 action game (Return to Castle Wolfenstein comes second).
