Thread: New unit sprites - minor axis stuff (Hun, Bul, Rom)

  1. #1

    New unit sprites - minor axis stuff (Hun, Bul, Rom)

    These are mainly to give those nations own sprites which normally use German sprites, something I didn't like.

    Please note: To make these work you need to edit the file "country.csv", see for details below under "Installation".

    I decided against providing my own country.csv, since people may have modded their own file already (so did I) and using my file would overwrite these changes. The edit is very simple though

    So what's in? Look at the Previews:

    Hun: Me-109 fighter, Ju-86 bomber, Ju-87 CAS, Turan tank
    Rom: IAR 80 fighter, PZL-37 Los bomber, Skoda R2 tank
    Bul: Avia B.135 fighter, Do 17 E bomber, T-35 tank






    The tank for Rom and Bul is actually the same, since both used the Czech model also used by Germany as T-35. The Turan for Hun uses the same chassis, but has some major differences.

    The PZL 37 bomber for ROM is Polish built, many planes were flown to Romania after Poland was attacked be Ger, then confiscated and so used by Romania.

    Download (updated 04 Dec 2009 new location):
    http://www.filefront.com/15057469/Axis_Minors01.zip


    Installation:

    1. The files: if you unzip the downloaded file, it should create a folder called "gfx" under Axis_Minors01. Drop the "gfx" folder in your main DD folder "..\HOI Doomsday", it has a sub-folder structure like the game and therefore all files should be automatically moved to the correct destination.

    2. Editing the country.csv: Now you have to tell the game to use the new sprites instead the German gfx. The country.csv is under ..\HOI Doomsday\db

    Find these lines:

    BUL;LightBrown;BUL;GER;X
    HUN;DarkYellow;HUN;GER;X
    ROM;DarkOrange;ROM;GER;X

    Change them to:

    BUL;LightBrown;BUL;BUL;X
    HUN;DarkYellow;HUN;HUN;X
    ROM;DarkOrange;ROM;ROM;X

    Don't change anything else, save, and play with your new gfx

    Bebro...excellent stuff as usual!

    Id love to see you try your hand at some alternate history stuff...the sheer amount of mods out there could use some decoration.

    Personally- Id love to see your take on some Confederate States armour and planes...hint hint (not too subtle I hope )
    The first release version of the Settling Accounts mod for HOI2 DD for Iron Cross is now available. See my thread in the Iron Cross modding forum for pics and download link.

    Awesome! That'll add to my collection of all your other sprites.

    Just wondering, is it just me or does it seem like the load time is getting slower as I add more gfx files?

    Thankyou BeBro, that's one hell of an addition!

    Yes seems to me too....that's the price for having a lot more files to deal with. But even on my weak machine playing itself is still ok.

    Thanks Bebro!! Those are awesome, as usual!!

    And yes, I notice longer reloading times, I guess its normal. But as you say, I dont find any ingame adverse effect in performance.

    having troubles in modifying country.csv file

    Hi BeBro, I really appreciate your works, I have all of them installed on my game..Keep up the excellent work!
    Anyway, I experience a problem when I try to modify country.csv file as per your instruction, in order to let BUL, HUN & ROM use their own sprites. When I open the file, modify as per your instructions, then save the file, Office tells me that the modifications make the file not compatible with the CSV format, so I cannot save the changes. The only thing I can do is to save the file in another format. If I force the file to be CSV format, the game crashes. Anyone else had this problem? Maybe it is simply something wrong with MOffice?

    Please help,
    Thanks in advance
