IFA3WarMod v1.15 Released

Posted by Ethridge on June 6, 2017 at 11:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Gunter Severloh has released a new version of IFA3WarMod

See the release thread for more details and download links.




Update - Patch release

New additions
- Iron Front Firearms Recoil Modifier
- Ragdoll Effects Overhaul

New addition details:

Iron Front Firearms Recoil Modifier

This addon changes the default recoil for many of Iron Front firearms. This does not include pistols.
All changes are based on real Youtube videos from firing ranges, and the idea was to make recoil more realistic.

- Twice as strong recoil for all bolt-action (might actually be a little bit more upped than it is IRL, because I love feeling the power of bolt-action rifles)
- Rebalanced MP44 + changed the visual kickback (for some reason in @IFA3LITE it kicks as a horse, it's only a visual effect though, it didn't affect the recoil.
- Increased recoil for PPSh-41, IRL it was really hard to control it, considering its 1000rpm firerate
- Rebalanced LMG recoils, all of them have the same base parameter, but due to different RPMs they feel  different

Other features:
- Overall, all LMGs are much more precise when on bipods, and much worse when shooting from hands
- MG42 now supports 250 rounds magazines (which are actually 250 rounds belts, but the 3D model looks like a simple 50Rnd. magazine).

Complete list of weapons affected by this mod:
- Kar98k, G43, M1903A4 Springfield, M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, Mosin Nagant, SVT-40
- MP 40, M1A1 Thompson, PPSh-41
- MP44, MG42, BAR, DT (all versions)
  (All IFA3 firearms, excluding pistols)
- PPS-43 from LEN Weapons pack http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=825222328

Ragdoll Effects Overhaul

This fixes various problems with vanilla A3's ragdoll physics. Knee joints have been
 fixed so that they can no longer bend in ridiculous ways, along with other various improvements.

-Prevents knee joints from bending into silly positions
-Weights of certain body parts decreased
-Stiffness of ragdolls increased, prevents majority of knee joint issues.
-Ragdoll collision with vehicles and physx objects has been enabled.


Mods Updated to their latest versions
- Ace mod
- IFA3 ACE compatible version added/updated - (only included because the mod has Ace in it.)
- 3den Enhanced
- Bullet Casings
- Immerse
- ASC Heads
- TPW Mods

New Mod version


The C stands for custom, this version of IFA3WarMod is a custom version i personally play with,
it is built with the following in mind:
- Performance - considering i have a duel core cpu, there are some mods that lag my game which have been removed.

- Stable, solid, sites/recoil when shooting - I dont really care about 100% accurate firing weapons, for me its believable if a gun isn't kicking up
and moving all over the place, i like to move, aim and kill, and not have to fight my gun because its swaying like crazy or kicking like im
shooting a tank shell through my rifle.

- Aesthetics - I love blood, shells, and debree it adds to the atmosphere and makes things more realistic for me, although depending it can
have a performance impact if overdone.
Many other aspects overall concept of this version I call Run n gun realism.

Full Converted IFA3 no longer supported!

Posted by Gunter Severloh on February 16, 2017 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello Iron front Community,

I am no longer supporting or hosting the files for the full converted verison of IFA3, or the vanilla patches for IF,they have all been deleted, and pages on the MR here have been deleted, I dont have them, and dont ask, where you can get them,or for my help in setting up and installing full IFA3.

I'm happy that I was able to help the community for those couple of yrs but IFA3 Lite in my opinion is just better and worth the time, full version is nothing but a frustrating headache, so lastly get IFA3 Lite.

Thats all.


Ragnarok '44 IFA3 Updated

Posted by Ethridge on February 12, 2017 at 6:20 AM Comments comments (0)

A new version of "Ragnarok '44" for IFA3 has been released.

See the release thread for download and more details.




After several months, Rydygier was able to get some freetime to Fix/update the issues in the mission.

please note that there may still be some issues with the mission/mode so if you think you have run across any please report them on the release thread!



- Heavy & Very Heavy tank allocation buttons/functions not working

- Script-related message for tank factory

- Enemy commander doesn't deploy a static mortar

- Red Icons for soldiers (circle), transports, halftracks, and tanks (sideways diamond) for the enemy dont show on map when your forces see them nearby


Fixed & rebuilt

- Enemy AI commander create many transport trucks/ambulances instead of a balanced number with more tanks/infantry


Rydygier comment

Hopefully fixed. In fact, base managing AI was redone in some parts, for better, I hope.



- Transporting troops (embarking/disembarking in combat)

- Enemy AI seems not aggressive enough, and or doesn't not deploy enough forces

Rydygier comment

Hopefully improved. Added second sub-leader to enable simultaneous attacking two flags etc. Known is rare circumstance,


when AI may stuck during flag taking progress


(when for any reason further flag is taken before actual targeted flag, reasons stay unclear so far).



- player incarnated as driver before when he gets into a tank, now incarnates as Commander, which will give you command and access to all other seats



- Crows & flies over dead bodies to save performance.


Missions with all Changes/fixes & updates applied

- Ragnarok'44 Demo - (now version 1.3)

- Ragnarok'44 City Under Duress - (now version 1.1)

- Ragnarok'44 Ivachev Clash - (now version 1.1)

IFA3WarMod v1.14 Released

Posted by Ethridge on January 13, 2017 at 6:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Gunter Severloh has released a new version of IFA3WarMod

See the release thread for more details




Hello Iron front and WarMod fans!

I am happy to announce the release of the new rebuilt version of IFA3WarMod.

a rundown of what this new version is:

Rebuilt from the ground up

contains most of the existing mods from the previous latest version 1.13 (1.12 w/patch 1.13 applied)

contains 8+ brand new mods + an addition of optional addons you can add

updated, and new readmes with a different approach for providing info on whats in the mod, more simpler imo

latest versions of all existing mods, tweaked for those with a userconfig

includes a demo mission type template that gives you some freedom to mess around with the mod

all content which is the: (infantry weapons, tanks, vehicles, static weapons, ammo boxes) were removed

IFA3WarMod v1.14 is massive addon & mod customizable compilation mod of gameplay features and functions if you want the new content get my IFA3WarModSA version which is only the content

Alot of time was spent in testing this, and theres probably more testing that can be done.

Aside a few noted mods that may cause a performance issues, those issues can depend on the user's computer and what their playing, so it will vary from person to person.

Keep in mind that the mod is modular, so you can remove a mod/feature if you do not care for it, or is giving you trouble.
