Batus Mod 2.0 Batus Mod 2.0

Made by:

Batus, Casquebleu & Frog's Friend.

Many thanks to:

Tyketto and Marc Anton, for their work, as they created some of the mod’s content, Mobmann, for his help with the descs, Smirnofski, Ghost, Ziesel, BolliBomber, Feldpost for their help and feedback, Magic Touch, for help, support and patience, Fireglow, for giving us the game to mod and the tools to mod it with, and many others who helped with their advice and feedback.


What the mod does and what it doesn’t do:

The mod adds a large number of new units and a variety of skins for all theaters of war. The mod improves the way the game looks and sounds and provides the map makers with additional content to help them make better, more realistic and historically accurate maps and missions. Apart from a few tweaks, the mod does not alter the gameplay.

How to install and use:

The mod is compatible both with Arms for Victory (1.4) and The Last Stand (1.5).

Note: If you have 1.4 installed you can install 2.0 over 1.4. Otherwise use a fresh install of the game to avoid problems (or at least backup your Media folder before installing).

Copy the Batus Mod 2.0 Installer into your Sudden Strike/Media folder and run it there. (Vista users may need admin rights to run this). When the black command window appears, press any key to continue. When the window closes installation is complete (this can take some time, please be patient)!

We advise you to install the Soldier Icons for this mod too:

Modifying and using the content:

This is a free mod and anyone who wishes to use its content in their free mod is free do so. You can use or modify any of the mod’s content because not only do we not criticize such behaviour, we encourage it.

Comments, suggestions or even complaints can be posted at or!


Was die Mod macht und was sie nicht macht:

Der Mod verfügt über eine Vielzahl von neuen Einheiten und von Skins für alle Kriegsschauplätze. Der Mod verbessert die Art und Weise wie das Spiel aussieht und klingt, es bietet mit zusätzlichen Inhalten den Kartenerstellern mehr Möglichkeiten ihre Maps oder Missionen besser, realistischer und historisch korrekt zu gestalten. Abgesehen von ein paar Tweaks, verändert die Mod jedoch nicht das Gameplay.

So wird die Mod installiert und verwendet:

Die Mod ist kompatibel mit Arms for Victory (v1.4) und The Last Stand (v1.5).

Hinweis: Um Probleme mit alten Mods zu vermeiden, sollte eine "frische" Installation von Sudden Strike 3 verwendet werden (zumindest sollte der Media Ordner gesichert werden). Es dürfte auch keine Probleme geben v2.0 über 1.4 zu installieren.

Kopiere den Batus Mod 2.0 Installer in den Sudden Strike / Media-Ordner und führe den Installer aus (Vista-Benutzer müssen Admin-Rechte zum Ausführen besitzen). Wenn das schwarze Kommando-Fenster erscheint, drücke eine beliebige Taste um fortzufahren. Wenn das Fenster "Installation beendet" erscheint, ist die Installation abgeschlossen (dies kann einige Zeit dauern, bitte habe Geduld!).

Weitere Verwendung des Mods oder des Inhaltes:

Dies ist ein kostenloser Mod und wer die Inhalte privat nutzen oder verändern will, darf das natürlich tun, weil wir modding generell fördern und nicht kritisieren wollen!

First version (2009/03/07) :
by Batus

This is what the mod contains:

-most of the existing skins have been improved: soldier textures are less colorful and appear more realistic, allied vehicles are in olive drab, German vehicles are in dunkelgrau without so much rust, Soviet vehicles are in dark green without so much rust, Italian vehicles are in dark olive green, Japanese vehicles and artillery are in their khaki brown.
-some new units were added through modification of existing units.
-most units have different skins for various theaters; there are plenty of German camos for Africa, Europe and winter.
Map makers who are not sure which skins to use where can always ask me, I’ll be glad to help as much as I can.
Have fun with the additional units and the skins.
