Hi everyone guess whos back?

We finnaly got the time to improve our Dynamic Flags Mods to make it ready for 2018.

We reworked a lot of flags to make and fixed a hole lot of historical problems.

Demo Video:

But what does it do?
This mod will change the flag of nearly every nation according to its current ideologie. A lot of nations got a wole set of 8 flags there are more the 2000 Flags in total.


-Tools-

This Version contains a little tool the "automatic_flag_index.html" . You can find thi little helpfull file in Darkest Hour/Mods/Darkest Hour Full/gfx/map/. It can be opened with any modern browser by simly drag and dropping it. This tool will show you all flags for all nations at once.

Online Version: http://rrt877.ucoz.net/automatic_flag_index.html ( wountload all flags )


-Download -

Version 02 Codename "Spartacvs":
http://www.mediafire.com/file/d8d6dz4ag46af7r/Dynamic_Flags_v01_spartacvs_Darkest_Houre.zip

Version 02 Codename "Spartacvs" for Kaiserreich 1.8:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/1ppcm...ich_Flagchange_Project_v02_Spartacvs.zip/file


- Help! -

We still need some help with the script. We know that our event is far from perfect and if some you could write a modern one for us we would be very thankfull. And we would like to implement mechanics to give natios different flags if they are at war or if they are puppeted by a specific nation.


- FAQ -

Is this Mod Compatible with Mod XY?
We are working on different Versions for some Mods.
Kaiserreich is done for v02.

Can I use Flag XY for my Mod?
Yes, feel free to do it.

Were can I get the Flags in PNG Format?
The oviouse ones can be easily found at Wiki-Commons, the one we recentrly worked out our selfs can be found soon in a Zip File ore on our DeviantArt Page. The older custom Flags are unfortunatly lost.

The Great "How to Create s Flag - for the Flag Change Project" Tutorial.


Step 1 - Search A Flag.

To find Flags, you should first search out the Flags witch your chosen country really have used in the past. A Realy great source for this purpose is Wikipedia, just type the current Name of you Country into the Wiki Search, in the Right box you can now see its actual Flag and Coat of Arms. But that not all, by clicking the Letters "Flag" under the Flag Image, will directly led you a special Article about the Flag of this country, for example here the one from Cambodia. Here, you can find all historic Flags of you country. Another great but all most unknown Source is Wikipedias national Flags Time line . I've you can't access what you are searching, thry a search at wiki commons, sometimes your can find here a much greater arsenal of flags and variants. Just fill up the search with "nation flag" in out case "Cambodia flag". I've are still with our a proper Flag, you also able to use Google images search, but most flags here are in a much worser quality.


What kind of should a Nazi flag look like?

Nazi Flags are symbolizing the direct influence of Nazi Germany, the real ones ( like Slovenia or Croatia ) just use old coat of arms or local Nazi party symbols. I will choose this flag, Cambodia under Japanese controll.


What kind of should a fascist Flag look like?

Fascism is not only the influence of other countries, it's more like a shelf driven try to restore the old glory of a country. Here you can ether search for real movement, or search for a national symbol witch is presenting law, order, military power, glory or else. I can't found one expect of the Arco Wat Building, so I'll take the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PROKFlag1979-1989.svg?uselang=de Flag and paint it in another color, please don't paint all fascist Flag black, its not very inspired and boring, I think withe and dark gold get this job done.


What kind of should a Paternal Autocrat Flag should look like?

In you opinion Paternal Autocrat is a kind wort for Monarchy, the most countries should have a royal standard. Cambodia got a niche one.


What kind of should a Social Conservative Flag should look like?

This kind of Flag can get tricolor Stripes but still got the Monarch CoA in it or other religions or conservative Symbols. I like this one, with the border.


What kind of should a Market Liberal Flag should look like?

The Flags don't got any Monarch Symbols but may the CoA. To express higher patriotism. I think I'll take
index.php
.


What kind of should a Social Liberal Flag should look like?

These Flag may often be identical, with the Market Liberal one. But if the Social Democrats got a special Flag this one could be a tricolor with out an CoA.


What kind of should a Social Democrate Flag should look like?

Social Democrats often decline to strong patriotism, this causes them to remove the CoA out of there Flags, But the Cambodian flag with out the Acro Wat is looking quite empty I'll take a normal ration tricolor and recolor it to the Cambodian blue / red /blue.


What kind of should a Left-Wing Radical Flag should look like?

Left-Wing Radical, can display a lot of movements and political situations, a radical movement just got into power, a left-wing radical group witch is declining the Moscow communism, an old established communist regime is slowly reforming it shelf and radical religious groups. In Cambodia we have a proper Flag for reforming.


What kind of should a Leninist Flag should look like?

This display the shelf driven try to establish communism, most country got such a movement. So does Cambodia, I'll use the Flag of the
File:PROKFlag1979-1989.svg
.

What kind of should a Stalinist Flag should look like?

A Stalinist, is a Moscow influenced Regime or a very radical movement. For the most Asian Country its just a red Flag with some kind of national Symbol. Please don't give every communist Country a hammer sickle red Flag, witch you can't separate. The most European Countries don't got such a red flag, they kept there national colors and got a new CoA, If you cant find such a CoA, just steal that one of another country, its to small for identification any way.

Step 2 - resize the flags

To work in the EFM ( Easy Flag Maker ) the Flags must be sized in 70*44 Pixel. To manage that you need a Program of you trust, I'm using Photoshop 7.



At first, we have to resize it, we are selecting "Image, Image Resize ...", then make a check at "Constrain Proportions". Then we type in "44" at hight.




Now, we got our Image in a much smaller size, but its still not the right one. It's in 66*40, but we need 70*40. In order to fix this we select "Image, Canvas Size ...". Now, we are able to change the 66 Pixel to 70 Pixel, with out stretching the Flag.




Now our picture got the correct size, but our flag doesn't. There are transparent spaces on both sides. No problem, we just select a area of Pixels, copy them ( Ctrl + C ) and past them ( Ctlr + V ), now we can move them into the transparent area. The same think, for the other side, and the image is solide again.




Now, you flag and our image got the correct size of 70*44 pxl. Now we have to save it for future workings. We should use PNG for storing.


Step 3 - working with the EFM

You can get the EFM ( Easy Flag Maker ) here including a great Tutorial, how it works.

Hm, I think, it's would be even better the Post With the Downloads should be the lead post.

Me too, but the forum sorts the post automaticly by posting time. :/
You will have to edit your posts and move things around.

And really awesome work so far, this is exactly what i hoped for.

What has Steve Jobb's to do with the Soviet Nazis???

btw, I'm posting all this awesome job of your guys in my blog as well...
http://hoiflags.blogspot.com

:)

I can't find a proper Flag for such think as a Nazi Union, so I decided to choose the flag of the "Front deutscher Äpfel" ( Front of German apples ). A satiric group oft Left-Wing activists.

@Amun Nefer

Thank you

@ewphoenix123

Ok, I thought it was for a reason.

@Dodraugen

Great work

@Arcanjo Zero

Another Good idea, I just Thought, yet a social democrat Soviet Union, would collapse any way .. so I decided to create a Political Union for every Ideology.

/edit

I'm during adding the Norway Flags to the Mod and I Think it would be better, to change the script then add the Flags twice. The Norway set don't got a Stalinist Flag so in the old System, you have to save the flag twice, ones as "shield_nor_sta" and once as "shield_nor_len", now I decided to change the Script. To do so we just change the Line:

command = { type = flag_ext where = NOR which = "_sta" }

In the Stalin command block, fron "_sta" to "_len".

What's this one?
Reminds me of this ecolabel:
svanen2.gif
It the Nordic Council's symbol, the ecolabel was made by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

I have not done anything with scripts before, but is it not possible to add a "or" modifier so it checks if its Leninist, Stalinist or Left wing radical and changes the flag if Norway is one of those ideologies?

It is.
