    [Interface] a new frame for the large shield

    Minefield's Europa Universalis III Interface Mod
    (current version: 0.05)





    hi folks,

    I've been looking on the shield in the topbar for a few hundred hours now and I needed a change. So I started to search the forums and the net and found some nice images for a new frame.

    As this is getting bigger then expected I now find myself making an interface mod for EUIII.

    2011/04/09: updated to v0.05
    changelog:
    • stability icon lightened
    • new icon for legitimacy
    • new icon for the coins
    • some positions tweaked

    2011/04/02: updated to v0.04
    changelog:
    • no sidebars at the top anymore. they were empty so I removed them.
    • a new centered topbar
    • new icons for most of the information in the topbar
    • moved the date to the center next to the shield


    Screenshot of v0.04 (click to enlarge):


    Download: minefields_eu3_interfacemod_v005.rar (made for EU3 v5.0)

    Future plans:
    I'm working on new icons for the resources and of course the icons for prestige, infamy and the ninja will be replaced soon.
    I'm not really satisified with the current frame of the coat of arms. There are still some other arms possible. If there is any interest in them, I can upload one or more arms-specific versions. (A version with the fifth arms will be availible soon)

    I chose number four. Below is a screenshot showing how it looks ingame.



    The screenshot shows further a centered and modded topbar. How does it look?

    edit: does anybody know if it's possible to add information about the form of government to the topbar?

    I played a few hours yesterday with the centered interface. It's a bit annoying as I'm trying to click on the arms at the old place in the upper left. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the new position...

    With the exception of the less than perfect flag blending in (in vanilla the flag would look more natural inside the shield, here it looks like it could use a little tweaking) it looks fantastic. One of the better interface mods. Just one question though; how do the drop down menus look? Screenies are welcome

    Couple of Questions/suggestions:

    The numbers next to the pics (like stability, legitimacy) Look wonky. Wondered if you could expand the box so that all the numbers are lined up. Make sure that the flag stays in center however.

    Your mod looks spectacular. When you release it for download can if I can please Merge it into the MCP modification? You can find a link in my signature .

    I'm still working on the dropdown menus, unfortunately I'm facing some problems as most information shown in the menus seem to be hardcoded. Further there came a new interface with the latest beta patch so I'll have to redo some edits for the new menus. But as I can't be sure the changes will stay in when PI releases the next official patch I can't release anything...

    About the topbar:
    I changed only some icons, edited the rest just be visible at all. If all icons are replaced, I'll tweak the positions.
    The shield looks flat because I didn't tweak the alpha channel by now to give it the glossy look.

    But more important: Can someone help me with some basic information about editing the EU3 interface?
    For example: when I centered the menu I thought about adding government information to the left side of the nation's shield but the call for it (like in the governments-menu) seems to be hardcoded. Is this correct? Or is there a way to display government info?

    This looks great! Too bad about the flags themselves not being centred.

    I guess you could try, but knowing nothing about modding EU3 I can't guarantee it would work. It could just cause your graphics card to explode.

    THIS MOD DOES NOT CHANGE THE CHECKSUM!

    as requested i made a quick testversion, but NOT with the centered version by now.
    see the screenshot below:



    download interface testversion (v0.01):
    - download removed due to a newer version -

    please note: the mapoverlay you can see in the screenshot is not part of the downloadable testversion.

    Any chance you can make test versions of the other shields?
