Update for AHD.
Minor Disclaimer this is based on the Demo of AHD.
Using my up to date files for VictoriaII replace the following with these updated files for AHD.
texturesheets.tga and texturesheets(2).tga (look the same but different format)
terrain_2_0.fx and water.fx
Download here (5.5 MB): http://www.mediafire.com/?vgzljkztnhfgjjf
Should work without a problem.
Re-textured map for Victoria II.
Download here (14.10 MB): http://www.mediafire.com/?e0uvon5w0n2v6wy
Instructions: Download and extract files to wherever this will create a folder called “VC update 03-11-10” which contains the files you may want to change in VCMapMap2 (28.53MB) below.
Make backups and check it out.
Update 09-10-10: All files will work with version 1.2
I have called this Version VCMapMap2.
Download here ( 28.53 MB): http://www.mediafire.com/?r3oqs41096mx15a
Instructions: Download and extract to your desktop this will create a folder called VCMapMap2 which contains the files that you will need to replace.
First make sure that you have backed up your vanilla files, I would recommend that you simple make a copy of your terrain folder and call it vanilla terrain folder then copy and paste my new terrain files into your existing terrain folder.
Second make a copy of your water.fx and terrain_2_0.fx files and replace your existing ones with with my new ones.
Third backup and replace your building_capital.dds
Start the game.
An attempt to make the Victoria II terrain map look more like an actual map and at the same time not to have a detrimental impact on the other maps, in fact to try and make them look better. This is now the default version but alternative texturesheets are included within the terrain folder which can be renamed to replace my default texturesheets.
1\ New texture sheets.
2\ New and more detailed colormap.dds to work with the new texturesheets
3\ New colormap_water.dds
4\ A few other terrain files see folder.
5\ New terrain_2_0.fx to lessen the darkness of the FOW (does not remove the FOW).
6\ New water.fx to allow the sea colour to show more clearly.
7\ New building_capital.dds , stands out more.
None that I am aware of, note that these changes will not cause a re-cache which I believe the game cannot do at the moment.
