Disk WinSPWW2 Infantry Icons Mod - Cross Infantry 1.0

Edit: If you want the Cross Infantry Snow Camo Mod, it's a separate download found here:
http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showt...915#post820915


This mod changes all the infantry in the game, including infantry sections/squads, cavalry, infantry ATk teams, HMG and motorcycle units, but does not change gun crews.

The mod includes all five uniform colours, and all infantry section sizes (from 1 to 19) for a total of 140 icons.




Motorcycle Sidecars

Currently all motorcycle sidecar units use the same generic MC sidecar icon, so the Soviet MC sidecar looks exactly like the German sidecar. It has been this way since the game was first designed. I have included a different sidecar icon for each of the five nation colours, as the game designers may rectify this at a future date.

Meanwhile, you can choose to download this infantry mod with:

• The ‘German’ feld-grey MC sidecar



or

• A hybrid MC sidecar that will serve as a generic icon



If you only use or oppose German sidecars, then I recommend the German version.


DOWNLOAD

Download one of the attached files:

Cross Infantry Mod 1.0 (with German sidecar)
or
Cross Infantry Mod 1.0a (with generic MC sidecar)


INSTALLATION

1. Unzip the ‘Cross Infantry Mod 1.0’ folder to your desktop.
2. Go into the folder and copy or move the 5 ‘shp’ files into the games GRAPHICS folder, and ‘replace all’.

Before you replace the original files, I recommend backing them up, by renaming them Icon0010.orig.shp or moving them to a folder called Original Infantry Icons, or something.

Your Graphics folder is located here:
WinSPWW2/Game Data/Graphics

Cross Infantry 1.0 modifies these files:

Icon0010.shp
Icon0011.shp
Icon0012.shp
Icon0013.shp
Icon0055.shp

NOTES

1. With infantry icon mods I’ve found there’s an adjustment period where you’ll need to get used to the feel of the new icons. After spending scores of hours with one set, a new set may seem a bit odd at first, but after a battle or two they will feel natural.

2. In SP, some infantry ATk teams use the ‘two man infantry section’ icon not the ‘infantry ATk team’ icon. This has nothing to do with this mod, it was either a game design decision or it’s a pre-existing error in the game’s OOB.

Also, keep in mind that the game only uses one infantry anti-tank icon per uniform colour. So although the icon may show a Panzerschreck, the ATk team may actually be carrying a Panzerfaust or ATk rifle etc.

3. Some of these new icons will be easier to see than the originals, but some may be harder, depending on the icon, nation and terrain. To make infantry more visible, you can turn on ‘ID Tags’ in Preferences which puts a flag in the hex of each unit. I recommend you download the Mini ID Flag Mod, that obscures unit icons less by putting a smaller flag above the unit. Like this:

Shrapnel Mod Advisory

This mod only changes Infantry icons, so can be installed mid-battle with no PBEM, security or OOB problems.

However, this mod is not endorsed or supported by Shrapnel Games or The Camo Workshop.

This is the same mod that I posted in 2010 here:
http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=46332

I thought this mod belongs in the new 'Mods sub-forum'

Thank you for this great mod Cross!

Some questions:
- Why not change the gun crew graphics too?
- Any plans for a similar mod for WinSPMBT?

You're welcome.

I just haven't got around to gun crews. I may do them in the future, but I usually mod what I'm interested in at the time, and I sometimes prioritise.

I don't have any plans to mod SPMBT infantry. I rarely play MBT. However, if anyone would like to take my WW2 infantry icons and use them to make MBT SHP files, I would support it with one or two minor conditions.

I believe MBT uses the same file numbers and uniform colours, but the setup of different icons within the files is different.

If you put this mod into MBT, it will 'work', but 8 men sections will have the 12 man icon and other errors. And a couple of the weapons would need adjusting, like the Panzerfaust should be changed to something a little more generic.

I thought I´d finaly share with all of you the version of Cross infantry icons mod that I use for WinSPWW2.

This version has a one pixel wide black border added to all the graphics to make them stand out more from the background graphics. This is the same thing I did with the WinSPMBT versions of the infantry icons here: http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=48393

For someone like me who has a poor eye sight this really helps.

For winter battles we have nice winter camo for vehicles but infantry still uses the summer camo.

So I thought I'd try to rectify this deficiency. Here are winter icons for the infantry. These are based on Cross infantry icons again I just repainted them white.

Usage:
First backup your original infantry icon files so you can restore them for summer camo!

By default the winter icons are for German/Axis forces only. (Icon0010.shp and Icon0028.shp)
However you can make copies and rename them to give winter camo to the other factions.

For USA/British rename:
Icon0010.shp to Icon0011.shp
Icon0028.shp to Icon0029.shp

For Russia rename:
Icon0010.shp to Icon0012.shp
Icon0028.shp to Icib0030.shp

er... personally I think the horse units look like the soldiers are mounted on giant rats. Maybe the rear end should be reduced and the horse's tail shouldn't be sticking out like that.

Welcome to the forum!

err...are you saying my horse has a fat butt?

Check out the rump on this horse called Sockpuppet:



You could always use the original horses:



cheers,

Well your horses look like a violin in a violin case that has been run over by a truck.

It's actually quite a bit harder than you may think to replicate horses from above with so few pixels.

Here's some actual size horses:


The third section are some modded horses by Welk I believe.
He does good art work. The rumps of his top and bottom horses are actually the same size as mine, but his use of shadow makes the rumps look smaller.

Once you put the icons in the game it adds shadow which I think makes my icons look better.

His cart horses might be what you are looking for. They have slightly smaller rumps, but I don't like the heads, the tails, or the manes which are too big and black.
