    Exclamation We want back the sprite diversity

    To all these HOI sprite players:

    All the hoi players who do also have played with hoi 1 know that we lost the sprite diversity since the update to HOI II.

    In HOi II we do not have multiple leveling sprites (tank level 1, tank level 2, etc.).
    And since the update to Doomsday we also lost plane sprites. (strategic and marine bomer and the air transporter)

    So we do not want paradox to build all theses sprite. But we want the possibility, to do that for our own. There are a lot of sprites modders in several hoi communities, who are still waiting to produce some llevels for ech sprites and since we do have the civ converted sprites it is no prlblem any more...

    But what do I want from this community? What is the sense of this thread?

    I want and I need your support to make our wish come true!
    We want backe all sprites form HOI 1. The hole multiple level possibilitiy!

    - each unit should have a sprite of his own!
    - each unit level should have a sprite of his own!

    Yours He-Man

    ...Okay...

    Well, to start with, *I* don't want that kind of sprite diversity, that seems like a major negation of battlefield intelligence limitations, seeing what kind of units the enemy are fielding without engaging them seems too easy.

    And secondly, what exactly do you want? Are you asking modders to make sprites for you?

    HAHA, are you Johan II?

    He - Man is asking for the possibility to show Multilevelsprites in HOI2 Armageddon - TANKSprites and/or other land/sea units. like it is done with the planes.

    It's one of my greatest wishes, too. Armageddon could be so nice.

    That would be my Nr one change if i had the sourcecode.

    I personally would like that. Even if I only play with counters anyway.

    Don't counters break through the intelligence limits anyways? If so, why not sprites?

    Game loading time would double for pre-2005 computers.
    Mod:
    Byzantium - Imperial Restoration for Darkest Hour
    Empire of Pohjola for Crusader Kings II
    Wilhelm Scream for Crusader Kings II

    AAR:
    The Nazi Time Machine - A Strange Story of the First Reich (CK2) Dead due to save game corruption. Will restart eventually.

    since the original poster only wanted to option to do so, it would be out of their own choice that game loading time would double...

    And I want a cookie!

    I'm not bothered with it myself, since I play with counters.

    And I wouldn't count on it to include in any patch/expansion that might be coming, you can only hope that they won't forget to reimplement it in HOI3.

    Leon sides with the sprite diveristy!!! I loved to see russian infantry look diff than germans. -Leon

    Ya, what he ^^^ said (leon).

    I'm not so much concerned with different types of bombers and being able to tell what level of research your enemy is at before you attack... but I'd like to see some nation-specific sprites like they had back in HOI 1. I remember playing HOI 2 for the first time and thinking something was wrong because every country's troops looked liked Germans! It'd be cool if they changed them up a bit (I know they changed the planes.. and they dealt with the worst problem of all time, V1s and V2s looking like airplanes ), so where Germans and their European allies look like the current ones, but they changed Poland and Russia, British and its Allies, and Americans so its a little more diverse.
