Suppress Black Market Symbol on Star Map?

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

I have 400 days to go in my Career. I have visited almost a 100 Systems so I need to pick up the pace a bit. However, the Star Map shows all of the Black Market Systems with a nice Purple Icon. This conceals the "visited" or "unvisited" status of the display. Is there a way to suppress the Black Market icon so I can plan my path correctly?

Try using the NavigationComputer mod - when you press F1 it switches to visited/unvisited systems view.

Another option might be to place the BM emblem image located on C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\BATTLETECH\BattleTech_Data\StreamingAssets\emblems\factions with a blank file.

Excellent! I will have to try that, thank you.

I tried replacing the Black Market Emblem with a transparent square using Photoshop with the NVIDIA Plug that reads and writes to .DDS. Nothing happened. I will have to use the Navigation Computer Mod. Thanks again!

The file used by the game might be the one located here instead: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\BATTLETECH\BattleTech_Data\StreamingAssets\sprites\PNG_Icons
