Miniature ID Flag Mod 2.0
1 Attachment(s)
This is a mini flag mod that changes all the ID flags in WinSPWW2

This is almost the same flag mod I posted in 2010. One or two flags have been slightly improved in this version.

The mod changes two things:

1. It moves the ID flags from under the unit icons to above.
2. It reduces the size of the ID flags by about 60%

Unit icons are less obscured, and it looks more natural when flags are above the units.

These flags are roughly the size that an AFV, infantry or cavalry unit may fly, so look more like they belong to the unit.

Here's 'before and after' screen shots:

Italian Social Republic

Italian Social Republic 2.0

Slovak Republic



Download the attached zip file: Cross Mini ID Flags 2.0.zip

1. Unzip the ‘Cross Mini ID Flags 2.0’ folder to your desktop.
2. Go into the folder and copy or move the 2 ‘shp’ files into the games 'GRAPHICS' folder, and ‘replace all’.

Before you replace the original files, I recommend backing them up, by renaming them Icon0097.orig.shp, Icon0098.orig.shp or moving them to a folder called Original ID Flag Icons or something.

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

Only these two files are modified:


Shrapnel Mod Advisory:
This mod only changes the flag icons, so can be installed mid-battle with no PBEM, security or OOB problems.

This mod is not endorsed or supported by Shrapnel Games or The Camo Workshop.

The inspiration for this mod came from Lahtinen who made a flag mod in 2006 that reduced the standard flags by about 40%. This mod goes a little further, reducing the standard flags by about 60%.

Much less obtrusive.
Nice job.

Re: Miniature ID Flag Mod 2.0
Hi at all!

This is my first post, so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question.

The MOD is really great, tried it this week, but there is one small question for me.

The miniature German flag is the historically correct Swastika and this is a problem here in Austria and also in Germany.

I don't mind the flag if playing, but you can't post in a German Forum with the Swastikas... :(

Would it be possible to create another version of the MOD without the Swastikas?

My knowledge of the whole shp-file-business is unfortunately not enough to do it myself...

Which flag did you have in mind?

Re: Miniature ID Flag Mod 2.0
Thanks for the quick reply!

I would think the top one would fit best, looks almost like the big non-swastika-flag.

Attached to this post is the same mod but with the Swastika replaced by a German Cross.

Re: Miniature ID Flag Mod 2.0
I don't know if this mod will still work if you change a unit's ID flag (using ; during deployment or using Scenhack).
I will try to test it over next couple of weeks and (If Cross is still AWOL) try and get a new fix together.

Re: Miniature ID Flag Mod 2.0
My intention is to create two new versions of this mod (If Cross doesn't return):

1. A "Vanilla" version with miniature versions of the ID flags as the game supplies


2. An "Extended" version with the new options from my WW2 Roundel Objectives Mod
