Posted: Wed Mar 14, 2018 10:25 pm Post subject: Last Stand Arnhem medals question.
I took a poke through the files and made replacements based on photos of the relevant medals - along with some tweaking, but within the existing files there are three sets of duplicate medals for German forces and two sets of duplicate medals for the UK. Any ideas why? That and I'm puzzled as to why there is an Imperial Japanese Wound Badge in there as well?
As for the changes; I've set it so that the UK forces use: Wound Stripe/Mention in Dispatches/Military Medal/Distinguished Conduct Medal/Military Cross and Victoria Cross, US medals have new images but remain unchanged in selection, Germans are the same, updated images but same selection (outside of the Assault Badge being switched to the General Assault badge. With the Polish Forces I had to do a little fudging. There's a Wound Stripe, Merit on the Field of Glory, Bronze Cross of Merit with Swords, Cross of Valour, Polonia Restituta and Virtuti Militari. As far as I can tell some of these weren't for actions under fire - but given the lack of potential awards, like I said, I fudged it a bit.
To give an idea of how they look in game I imported them for CC5. They seem to come out a little clearer on the background that Last Stand Arnhem uses. It'll take some doing to get a full rack of medals to show them though with LSA.
It's a shame that the games don't scale images as the 256x256 images are really nice. Shame to have to shrink them down and loose the detail.
It's just those duplicates and that odd inclusion of a Japanese Wound Badge...
Not sure about the duplicates, but possibly because connected to "Nations" and "Styles" in uniform.txt
The Jap badge must have been a placeholder during development or put there by mistake.
Thanks for the answer, have you been well? I think you'll be right with that assumption, would connect with the different voice sets as well. It made me wonder though if they had a Pacific set game in development? The Okinawa mod for CC5 had some brilliant moments.
I'll upload the .psd file with the icons and the resized versions if they'll be of use to others as well? There are backgrounds for CC4 and CC5 with them too.
I'm quite tempted to set one of those duplicate sets to images of squeaky chew toys for pets. First Class Tank Hunter? Have a rubber ducky!
I really hope this new CC installment has scaleable interface elements and more detailed UI - icons, medals etc.
