    • 1. Some ideas for customatizion ( I don't know which one will come with the update)  -As a Jäger you should have the choice between the Gaede helmet (currently used by Jäger) and t he Tschako with/without cover -Also we should have been the choice for the Pickelhaube/Tschako cover, the red or green regiment numbers but you have also the choice to leave it emtpy. -That you have the choice that your soldier get a knapsack . -Helmet camoflage for the stormtroopers 2. More historically Uniforms -The German uniform is too bright. -The "Knobelbecher" weren't black before 1915 (photo below) -The Jäger uniform should also have the typical green lines on the uniform.- Same thing for the early war infantry with red lines   3.The option between, you pressing "F" to do all things (build, bandage,...) and the old system 4. More Admin tools -For more/less realism 5. An optional ticket system
    • Well I only did this if the devs wanted to go full historical. there can be exceptions made for balance ofc.  there is also the question that the french use a british smoke grenade when we had our own (as demonstrated in this post)
    • Nice research but when the smokes get removed (pre 1916) all should factions shouldn't have than smoke grenades.
    • In-game there are a number of issues regarding the French loadouts, in this post I will be detailing what could be done to fix it in order to make it more accurate, using infantry combat manuals and officers manuals of the time.

    • Gourde modele 1877    In-game, currently, the "water bottle" of the french troops is a personalized item done by a tirailleur (as characterized by the crescent and star) when in reality, the majority of troops maintained the blue covering for their "gourde". in-game model:   Real Life: Proposed Fix: Change the color of the current bottle to use blue instead of khaki, and remove the star and crescent on it    Casque Adrian   Currently, in the game, there is a bizarre adrian helmet model for the assault, the medic, and the machine gunner. that has a cut off visor, I cannot find any historical reference detailing such a modification.   In-Game:   There is the correct helmet in the game already, my proposed fix would be to simply give the model of the standard adrian to all members of the section.   However, for the artilleryman, there would be a need to add the artillery insignia on the adrian helmet:   Source: "Les casques de combat du monde entier de 1915 a nos jours" by Charles Lavauzelle p. 70 If there is any need to clarify, or provide additional sources, I would be glad to provide them.
