* The blue diamond 'me' icon is more intense.
* Icons indicating your units are more saturated.

Grrr. Does anyone know of a way to get this graphic mod to show up in the Tutorials and default Scenarios without overwriting the game's existing Flag_Effects.dds file?

I didn't notice that until now.

Just a small update to clean up the graphics files using Gimp.

Sounds like a great addition for these poor old eyes!

Any help on where to place/use the file in the game?

Thanks

K,

Put them in the Mods file. Then activate them.

There is a text file that comes with the Mod explaining where to install it. The 'Enhanced Unit Icons' folder and all of its contents goes here:

C:\NorbSoftDev\Scourge of War - Gettysburg\Mods\
+ Enhanced Unit Icons

Then fire up the game, go to the Mods page, and click the text to enable the Mod. It works with Sandbox play and User Scenarios.

Hey Wolfe_CH

Got to say, I am very impressed with your Enhanced Mod !!!

I just finished a Sandbox game and I loved the enhancement !

I used both your Map & Unit Icon enhancement together and it makes my old eyes happy !!

Great Job !!!

Thanks very much! Glad you like 'em. I tried to make them stand out a bit more without making them too distracting.

An update for SoW 1.4 beta (it seems the flag_effects.dds file has been integrated into a different graphics file). This version of my mod (2.0) also retains compatibility with older pre-1.4 versions of SoW-GB, so one mod for all versions!

Hello @all

Would it be possible that you somehow update to version 1.61 or there is perhaps something still different. Many thanks for your help
