It's already in the mod as an optional.
Thanks for including all those optional files, by the way! When I accidentally discovered the high-saturation-low-transparency file while looking through the files, I was absolutely flabbergasted at how much more awesome the map looked!It's already in the mod as an optional.
You're really an asset for the Team and the Forums mate...It's already in the mod as an optional.
Just go to "...\mod\Historical Immersion Project\map\optional - flatmap" and copy those files over to "...\mod\Historical Immersion Project\map", replace when asked and voila.
I second this. I only just found all the optional border files. So many lovely options!I think you should include some kind of notice somewhere that these optional files exist, though--either in the HIP.exe installer or in this thread's OP. I found them entirely by accident, only because I was looking through the files for fun!
The HIP installer contains an alternate LTM (LTM+vanilla) which is designed for those who are still using the vanilla map, so to just install that one: say no to everything in the installer except for LTM, easy peasy. As I've written before: The LTM variant for vanilla is a lite version, it basically includes shader edits, new river textures, new borders, and vanilla texture replacement, so that one doesn't expand or edit the terrain like you see with the LTM+SWMH screenshots.Is it possible to use these amazing graohics also for the normal vanilla game (All dlc´s)? I can´t find a link
The Gaea sub-mod is compatible with LTM, you can just install HIP as normal and run Gaea on top of it all. Gaea is also using LTM in its promotional screenshots, so I'm guessing it's supposed to be played with LTM turned on ? However, I must point out that because of how Gaea is built on another map, it doesn't manage to incorporate most cosmetic changes LTM manages to bring to SWMH, and it also might have some oddities here and there. Some of these differences are:
Thank you. And that "someone" would be me tooTo my pleasant surprise, LTM for Vanilla is perfectly compatible with Achievements. Thanks a lot for all your hard work! A shame flatmap doesn't work on vanilla, but that's not a big deal.
@Lord of Pain, have you considered warning about the Optional files (flatmap, high/low transparency/saturation, borders etc) in the original post? Someone worked a good deal on all this and like others, I found these options completely by accident.
An installation guide (no matter how easy it is) should also be described, even if it's just "Install HIP.exe, then install just LTM").
Do you have any plans for the next Major DLC compatibility update mate ?Thank you. And that "someone" would be me too
I have thought about rewriting the OP with more thorough descriptions, but I just have never gotten around to it on my busy schedule. Might update get to update in September though.
Unfortunately, unless an immediate need for a compatch pops-up then I won't be put any priority on an update for quite a while. I just have too much on my hands IRL right now, as I'm trying to juggle a full-time job, two side jobs, full-time university studies, a funeral, moving, sports, girlfriend etc. So A LOT of things on my plate keeping me very busy for the next few months. :/Do you have any plans for the next Major DLC compatibility update mate ?
