Mostly a proof of concept. This replaces 40 vanilla event pictures with illuminated scenes, some of them being compositions or photoshops. Also changes a bunch of Muslim (using Persian and Ottoman miniature) and Byzantine pictures. The loading screens show Early Netherlandish paintings. Not all of the images used are of suffucient quality. I could really use some help here, mostly with finding high resolution images of illuminated manuscripts.

Version 1a
(Old prototype)

What needs to be replaced:
  • A better Carriage escorted by guards (currently neither has a carriage nor guards)
  • A better Brothel Scene
  • A better Bloody man
  • A better Character Reading book in library (at the moment an edit of the monk illuminating)
  • A better Character receiving letter (at the moment an edit of a scribe)
  • A better Plague Doctor (currently using a heavy edit of a renaissance illustration, should probably be changed to a generic plague illumination)
  • A better Courtiers arguing (currently the same as whispering in ear)
  • A bunch of other stuff

What is missing (Vanilla):
  • King_Lunatic
  • Knight-kneeling_cross
  • Knights_melee_battle
  • Lovers_entwined
  • Man_Wife_Quarreling (sic)
  • Market
  • Pale_rider_field_of_dead
  • Peasant_mob_in_arms
  • Ruler_listening_to_supplicant
  • Shadow (assassination)
  • Shadowy_cabal
  • Sick_character_recovering
  • Spymaster_reporting
  • Temple_mount_cross_in_sky
  • Thrown_into_dungeon

Use and reuse:
Should be compatible with any mod. This can be integrated into your mod, but please link back to this topic.

I provided some pictures, but I don't think my work is fantastic. Not yet, at least. Not every event_picture is covered, and some of the things that are covered could use a better miniature. :p

Though now I fired up the game, I suddenly realized something... I could replace the loading screens with medieval paintings. Because they're not tied to certain contexts, I'd have the freedom to pick some really nice things. Some Early Netherlandish painting, perhaps.

But still, it is a good beginning that adds a nice flavour.
I will follow further developments.

I haven't yet found anything suitable for the missing Vanilla events. I'm currently studying for my exams, so my time's kind of limited. I'll compile the Islamic miniatures in a few weeks.

Suggestions for sources to use are always welcome. :)

I like these. I remember that one of the first things I did with the original CK was look for period event artwork. Nice to see someone with the same idea for CK2.

It's quite difficult to find appropriate artwork, though.
