good news for all of you, i have a working french flag, (nothing fancy but it is very colorful) which means i'm gearing up a french mod though it might be a poorman's attempt just to tie us over till the full version comes out.

Cheers!

I think that french flag is wrongly oriented.The blue stripe should be next to the pole :P

Thanks a lot for this mod.

i had it that way originally & it didn't look right, it's a 2d image in a 3d enviorment so you never see the opposite side. i'll release both versions & the user can decide which 1 they wanna use :D

mann you gotta fix those skin tones! They've never seen the light of day!! :D

But not to be mean or anything, whats the point of making a French mod since you will be using the same units and same voices?

1st skin pack was tan, 2nd skin pack was pale, i take it u want something somewhere in the middle?

the game sees every country's units as unique. different name, different stats, & hopefully i can come up with the different skins. the sounds will be the same until we figure out whats holding us back from moding them. some damn custom codec ogg format no doubt :(

i think i'll hold off on releasing the french flag tonite & pack it togethor with some other goodies i'm working on...but i'll be sure to keep you all up to speed on things

cheers!

Indeed Berdan your flag is wrong: from the pole it should be Blue, White, Red (wether you look at it form the right side or the left side).

But if you want to be more historical it's not even the classic design we know. Check this website for more info:

And for some almost ready to use graphics:

(I love the one with the Eagle)

If you need some help on repainting the skins, uniforms and such please just ask. I'll probably be looking at them anyway but I don't want to redo something that somebody has already done :)

well cro_knight i will leave the french skinning to black fish as it would appear he has quite the artistic talent.

however i have created some new flag skins. here's a teaser picture to show you the Prussians in action Prussian Flag (http://img235.echo.cx/my.php?image=prussianflag4vc.jpg) :cool:

Hi there!

I think it's getting interesting, and hope it's going to be a lot of mods for this game. I've never modded a game, and don't know anything about scripting, but I think this engine will be easy to mod. Let see what you, modders, are going to do with this IG.

And here is my personal try with the spanish army (the unit draws in the botton of the screen are the ones for neutral armies, like spanish one :( ) I also changed the flag for the 3D units and for the status bar as well. The original one is stripped in red and yellow, similar to the actual flag and one of the used in that XIX century.

Granaderos españoles (http://img144.echo.cx/my.php?image=granaderosdesalamanca5nw.jpg)

Now I'll try with other units...
