Default WinSPMBT Infantry Icons Mod

This mod contains highly altered or additional files that may or will cause interference with the master game files and it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that this mod be installed and played ONLY in a separate copy of the game and NOT run from the master game.

With permission from Cross here is the Cross Infantry mod adapted to work with WinSPMBT. Do not use this with WinSPWW2!

I modified the graphics so that they display correctly on WinSPMBT. Also made some small modifications to make the infantry look more "modern". This means more generic AT-Weapons and smaller backpacs. Also recolored the 'allied green' uniforms to be greener and added more green to the grey uniforms. Machinegun team graphics are also more generic.

Installation:
Copy the files in the ZIP...
Icon0010
Icon0011
Icon0012
Icon0013
Icon0028
Icon0029
Icon0030
Icon0031
Icon0055
Icon0056
...to your WinSPMBT\Game Data\Graphics -folder. But remember to back up those files before copying so that you can easily revert back to the old graphics if needed!

My thanks to Cross for making the original WinSPWW2 infantry mod which is available here.

EDIT
See post #17:
http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showp...9&postcount=17
For alternate versions of this mod that make the infantry stand out better from the background graphics.

EDIT2
Winter infantry camo made available.

Realising that the modded infantry might blend too much in the background and be hard to spot (especialy on higher resolutions), I have been testing a concept.

Attached are two screenshots. The first shows the current infantry graphics as seen when using the WinSPMBT infantry mod provided above.


The second screenshot shows the same graphics, but with small one pixel wide black borders added to hopefuly make the graphics stand out more from the background and be easier to spot.


Which one do you think looks / works better? Should I make available a second mod with the black borders for all infantry? Or does it look too unrealistic / cartoonish?

Im interested to hear your oppinions, thank you.

Thanks for you job.
Is necessary install in other copy? I no think that change of graphics disturb a PBEM game. Or yes?
I think that is necessary do a backup´s files.

Please read this post:
http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=47993

That all said this is a graphics only mod and should not affect PBEM games. Then again I do not play PBEM so I can't be 100% sure.
Backing up your files first is always a good idea.

I prefer the first graphic.

The game does add a small shadow to the southwest of the units.
You could try adding a black border/shadow to only the SW of the men, this would emphasize the shadow and might be the effect you are looking for.

It's Shrapnel and SP Camo's policy to recommend a second game installation for modding. And it's a good policy. But it's up to you what you do on your own PC.

I have 3 installs of the game:

1.Vanilla (no mods at all)
2.PBEM Mod (no OOB mods so can PBEM, but has modded: sounds, icons, flags, ranks, names
3.OOB Mod (has all of the above mods, plus OOB mods)

You can install sound and graphic mods even in the middle of a PBEM game with no security problems. But if you change OOB files it WILL cause problems with PBEM games.

NB. When you create a new install of the game, you don't have to use the installer and install from scratch. Just copy the game to a new directory/folder and create a new a shortcut and you have a second install.

By pressing the key 5 you can display formation IDs in the CD version, what solved all the problems with spotting units.

What mod do you have for ranks and names?

I must be in the minority...but I much prefer the second png *with* the black border. I hope you make an alternate version with this border.
