Thanks, novapaddy.

BTW, people may remember that when I was making the other pack, I cheated by using a sprite that was supposed to be Polish for the Italians.

So, I've redone the sprite as a Polish one, just as nature intended!

Download Polish Infantry here

Note that if you want to use this sprite, you have to go to Darkest Hour/Mods/Darkest Hour Full/db/country and change

POL;DarkGray;POL;FRA;X into
POL;DarkGray;POL;POL;X

or you will continue to see whatever you are using for French infantry

I've added three more units to the original post.

sa21aFo.png

There's an M13-40 tank, which is supposed to have been the main tank used by the Italians during the war. The 'M' stands for medio (medium), the '13' for its weight of 13 tonnes and '40' for the initial year of production. It was used in Greece and North Africa but not on the Eastern Front. There's some debate as to whether it was really a medium tank. I notice on the DH tech tree that it appears both as a light and a medium tank.

mWHwg1a.png

This is an L6-40 light tank. It was used in North Africa and was the main tank used on the Eastern Front. The 'L' stands for legio (light), the '6' for its 6 tonnes in weight and '40' again for the initial year of production.

6r3mLwS.png

For mechanised infantry there's a TL 37 Protetto vehicle. I've read that the Italians didn't really get around to using much mechanised infantry and that this vehicle was mainly used by the Italian Social Republic. Not many were built. Unfortunately, the sprite doesn't show the troops in the back.

Note that I'm no expert on these vehicles. This is just some info gathered from some quick research.

OK, there's a couple more units to finish off the Italians.

If2Oi0i.png
HLbYen3.png


First, we've got motorised infantry.

I must say that I would have preferred the truck to be smaller. I really like it, but its size means that it's a bit obtrusive on the map, especially in the later game. That's why I decided to use an infantry sprite for the stand (default) mode, adding a 'T' to identify the unit as motorized. I tried using an 'M', but it didn't look right, so 'T' stands for 'transport' or 'truck'.

So, when the unit isn't doing anything you'll see the sprite on the left. When it starts moving you'll see the truck, and when it fights you'll see the ordinary infantry sprite firing.

However, I realise that some people might prefer to see the truck when the unit is inactive, so I'm including a modification here. You should first download the unit from the original post and then download the modification. Overwrite when asked.

Finally, those of you who have downloaded the sprites in the old pack will probably have noticed that the British infantry sprite was slightly bigger than most of the others. This makes the difference from the new sprites more noticeable. As I noted in the original post, Imperator has even made sprites for the Italians who fought on the side of the Allies. The uniform is basically a British one, though, so I decided that we might as well cheat a bit and use it for the British infantry until the British pack comes out. If you were using the old British sprite, you should overwrite when asked, of course.

OK, I know I said that I'd finished the Italians, but.....

ITA%20-%20ICONS%20AND%20MOTORBIKE_zpskwksqkes.png~original


....I just can't stop tinkering!

First of all, in Brescia, you can see that I've changed the Motorised Infantry stand (default) sprite. This was because the 'T' in the original version was easily lost among province names and other map features. I've changed the download in the original post. Of course, the truck version for the stand sprite is still available in post 11.

The new 'sprite icon' trick then led to a couple of other additions. In Venice you can see a Garrison sprite with its own shiny new symbol, while in Parma there's an HQ sprite. In both cases the icon only appears for the stand sprite, while the ordinary infantry sprites cover movement (in the case of HQ) and firing.

An HQ symbol already appears when you click on a stack that contains an HQ, but the new sprite allows you to identify an HQ without clicking. With these new sprites you should be able to identify any kind of Italian land unit on the map.

Note that I had to add the red colour on the HQ icon to the infantry palette, so you should overwrite when asked during downloading.

Download the Italian Garrison Sprite Here
Download the Italian HQ Sprite Here

Finally, in Bologna, you can see that I've prepared a motorbike unit (with a Bergsagliere rider). This is for the Cavalry when it reaches a certain level.

Note: Until now all the downloads have been meant to work with both Darkest Hour and Arsenal of Democracy. This time there are two separate downloads because the levels in the two games are different. Whereas the horses change into motorbikes at Level 12 in Darkest Hour, the change occurs at Level 4 in Arsenal of Democracy. Make sure that you download the right one for the game in question.

In the case of Darkest Hour the motorbike should appear as of the 1941 scenario.

What's the difference between DH and AOD version ?

Because i might use the DH version in my AOD mod !

DH and AoD have differently numbered levels of technology. The two versions are designed to respond to the levels used in each game. The actual sprite is exactly the same, however, so you should definitely download the second one for AoD.

I'm sure he's still working on this. Chicken Spadge disappears from time to time but then suddenly reappears with a new Sprite pack :)

Good job! Do you continue your work?

Yes, it isn't really me that you're waiting for. I have to wait until Imperator on the civfanatics website releases the next part of his pack.

The problem is that the sprites are really being made for Civilization 3, not Darkest Hour, and Imperator is making a lot more sprites than we need for DH. For example, the original Italian pack had around 75 different sprites in it, but I only used about 12.

The good news is that Imperator has begun big projects like this before, and he's always completed them, even if takes a long time. I must admit that I was hoping that the next part would have been released by now, but I'm hoping that it won't be much longer. Imperator is certainly still active on the civfanatics forum.

Anyway, I checking very often to see if anything new has appeared, and I'll start working on it as soon as it does.
