Actually the mod is for SPWW2. It just changes the rank abbreviations from Maj. to Major, Cpt. to Captain, Cpl to Corporal, Pvt. to Private etc. for about 4 nations

In MBT at least one of those nations has the longer ranks.


Names

As I'm British, I just changed the British names to family, friends, and some famous leaders, generals etc.

The "automatic" shadow added by the game does not appear on the unit graphics if it is on a paved road, house or woods. Not sure if it is a game engine limitation or just a desing oversight.

That way the manualy painted shadow would show even if the "automatic" shadow would not. Not a bad idea I will need to investigate it.

Yes the border does make the graphics stand out much better in my oppinion. Attached are two more pics this time with 2x zoom and using the Green uniforms.

OK... Bear with me here

In the attached picture we have 3 options.

1 = How the infantry looks with the mod now.
2 = How it looks with the shadow (or half border) added as Cross suggested. If I understood him correctly.
3 = The black border option.

Notice how the "automatic" shadowing disappears when the infantry is on a road hex. The infantry in the no.1 example seem to become fused in the asphalt.

So now we have 3 choices. Which one looks the best now?

Ok, I desided to make two alternate versions of this mod that you can download from the attachements.

- "WinSPMBT_Inf_Mod_HB.zip" Contais modified infantry icons with the half-border option. Use this one if you just want the infantry to show up a little bit better from the backgrounds.

- "WinSPMBT_Inf_Mod_B.zip" Contains modified infantry icons with the full black border surrounding the graphics. Use this if you want the infantry to show up even more from the background graphics.

Thank you Rosollia and Cross, The best of both worlds. I just tested out the full black border version and it is a keeper for me.

Hmm I d/l'd mod B version and noticed that everytime as squad loses 1 man whole squad icon disappear... And HQ icon is "invisible". Could you fix them? I played as Aussie vs. Japan and noticed that opponent (Japan) had same weird icon "disappearing" as my troops have.
