Hiya! Will modders ever be able to add in custom models, sounds, and textures? CoH2 modding seems super gimped in comparison to CoH1.
I've read early discussions from 2013, and it seemed the developers were totally on board with the modding scene, even giving permission to port CoH1 models to CoH2. Sure, three years ago revenue from selling skins was a concern, but with Relic allowing players to create and download custom skins on the Workshop, that really doesn't seem like a valid excuse anymore—especially with the new War Spoils system, which kinda shows that Relic isn't too worried about skin revenue anymore, since you can just plop down 3750 supply for that hot skin you've been eyeing.
We've got several mods on the workshop that could heavily benefit from custom models and sounds, the Japanese Faction mod being one that springs to mind instantly. I'd really just like to know: does Relic plan on expanding modding? With all these fantastic mods being created without custom models and sounds, imagine what the community could do with these things.
Sorry if this seems kinda rant-ey. It's 1AM and I'm pretty tired.
