Hello there!

I've been reading in this forums and think IG will be a good game (venga, tÃ*os de Pyro, podéis hacerlo!!! :p)

And what I demanding from the good modders (Berdan power!) is a France mod. All you have to do is:

Copy "02Austria" or "04Inglaterra" from ...\Imperial Glory Demo\FSCommand\Models in the same folder and rename it to "01Francia".
Mod the skins for the different units (I tried it but all I could do is putting britons a little bit more blue :)).

The same for the flags in ...\Imperial Glory Demo\FSCommand\Models\BANDERAS. The new flag file will be Francia.tga.

Now we are ready to chane the demo.sb file in ...\Imperial Glory Demo\FSCommand\Game\GameModes\Demo folder:

Where "JUG_AUSTRIA" (or "JUG_GRAN_BRETANYA") change to "JUG_FRANCIA", and for the units, change "PAIS 3" (or "PAIS 1") to "PAIS 2". Changing "PAIS" you can have different country units under the same flag.

Now we got blue spots in the map, the french flang in the "global status bar" and the french names for the units.

ANd I think it's all. Hope my poor english could explain it correctly.

I also changed:

the cannon balls reboundings in the DatosBatalla.sb file in ...\Imperial Glory Demo\FSCommand\Game\GameModes\Batalla folder:

changing ".NUM_REBOTES_ARTILLERIA 4" (don't change to a very elevate number except if you want to play bowling).

the chaos in the formatios of the different units in the same file DatosBatalla.sb:

changing

.DATOS_FORMACIONES
[
.CAOS_FORMACION_INFANTERIA_X 30.0
.CAOS_FORMACION_INFANTERIA_Y 10.0

.CAOS_FORMACION_CABALLERIA_X 40.0
.CAOS_FORMACION_CABALLERIA_Y 30.0

.CAOS_FORMACION_CUADRO_X 10.0
.CAOS_FORMACION_CUADRO_Y 10.0


In that file you can either chang the particle system values when units moving (".PARTICULAS_MOVER_UNIDADES").

Well I hope it can help everybody.

nice work there Gabriel! yes adding the french did cross my mind the prussians & russians as well (theres quite a many number of neutral nations as well ;) ) as demonstrated it's easy to add units to the game. the hard part is the art. i'm seriously no artist & getting the uniforms accurate for the different units will require some good research. theres still so much more to dig through & learn....i've spent many more hours analyzing the files than i have actually playing the game :D but i'm glad everybody is enjoying the mods & with alittle help we'll turn this from a good game into something great!

Cheers! :cool:

So does this mean someday we could have more than the 5 shipping as playable nations? That would be great.

I already posted messages about that elsewhere but I'm ready to help with some of the art. I'm a professional artist in the game industry so I think I can do an ok job with it :D On the other hand I suck at implementing stuff so if somebody could help me on that side that would be nice. I'll look into modding some French troops although I don't have too much free time.

I did a quick try at doing a Vieille Garde Line Grenadier and a flag. Here is a pic in progress. Hopefully I'll have the time to finish it. It would take a bit of time to do all the French troops and I guess it's maybe better to wait for the game release :rolleyes: but anyway here is a try:
