Ichi no Hito
- Aug 24, 2012
I've finished all Empire/Kingdom/Duchy/County flags in China, Korea, Annam, and Dali. Some of them I had to be a bit creative with, especially in Dali, but it should all be reasonable. I've redid the China ones to be a bit more visually interesting.
Barony coat of arms are also complete for those regions, but annoyingly they are tied to the holder's religion. Instead of cluttering coats_of_arms.txt and landed_titles.txt I've set them to only show up for Taoism.
Here you can see one of the China-held counties in Annam and the hanzi coa showing up:

But the other baronies in Annam have randomly generated Buddhist coas.
Password locked once again.
Both of the files refuse to load for me. Unsure if it is broken on my end or not (though other files appear to work as expected), but you might need to re-upload them. Also, assuming you've only edited basically the same files as in the past (a landed_titles file and coats_of_arms.txt), I'm prepared to say you don't need to password-protect them.
I think we'll be swapping CoAs for baronies in Korea to show up for Buddhists rather than Taoists, as the region was predominantly Buddhist. Not sure what we'll do with Annam and Dali, since those regions also had a significant Buddhist presence (and Buddhist rulers, if I remember correctly). I'm fairly sure we can tweak that on our own (unless I misremember how it is done), but just a heads up.
Regarding the Japanese CoAs you mentioned a while back, we're interested in "Kanji + colour"-style CoAs for duchies (and, if we end up splitting k_japan in the future, kingdoms) and baronies if you feel like making those (if so, the barony CoA should be assigned to the Buddhist religion, as the Shinto religion is intended to use dynastic CoAs). For the counties, we're planning to go with a mon instead of the other approach, which is a bit more work. If you want to help with those (you're obviously free to decline), I can provide you with a reference picture for each county by PM.
Also, if you want to help out with it, various titles in de jure Balhae could use new CoAs. While the region was ruled by several different cultures and religions during the era, I'd say we'd prefer the Korean (i.e. default) name over other names, and that we'd prefer for the barony CoAs to be assigned to the Buddhist religion since the rulers of Balhae were Buddhists.
