Seven Years War mod
« on: November 04, 2018, 12:01:54 PM »
I've decided I don't like the 2D terrain in JTS Seven Years War so I've put together a little mod that harmonizes it with my Napoleonic mods.

The problem with the terrain in the release version is that although it's readily apparent that hexes are at different elevations, it's hard tell which ones are higher and lower.

This mod uses most of the symbols from the Napoleonic mod.  Apart from slight repaint of the unlimbered artillery symbol, the only innovation is the infantry marching column symbol (looks very similar to the infantry line symbol, only grey).

The mod also replaces the game's Musket and Pike victory music with something a little more appropriate to the period.  I've also included two desktop icons that can be used to distinguish battle scenarios from campaign games.

A few screenshots:


Lobositz




Kolin




Prague




Zorndorf




Rossbach



 
Shortcut icons






I've added a link for downloading this mod to the complete list of links for my Napoleonic mods. 

In addition, the mod can be downloaded from here:

Wow thanks Philippe! I am a fan of your Napoleonic mods (I have Leipzig,Marengo & Austerlitz) so will be great to have this one too...

By the way do you have any mod for Bonaparte's Peninsular War?

Mods for Bonaparte's Peninsular War and Republican Bayonets on the Rhine are both in the works (and in different stages of completion).  No ETA, but we're probably talking sometime next year before midsummer.

Great news.  The Peninsular War title is going to be a Christmas present to myself this year.

  I'd love one for Republican Bayonets!

Just a suggestion @Philippe, can we have another icon for generals instead of a flag? (when gens at top flags just unmotivate;>)  ^^ a star or anything appropriate?

I think it's on their eventual to-do list, but don't hold your breath.

The first game in the series eventually got a set of 3D textures, but it took a while.
