    (09-08-2012)Celéstial's Modding Box - 'Units jumping out cover fix'

    Hello community,

    I decided to public release some interesting coding work, new models and GUI icons. Feel free to use this in your mod, just give a little credit.

    squadAI fix (units no longer/much less likely jumping out of cover) - download
    Well this is a problem many people have faced over the years. AGameAnx and I have tried numerous things and this was our most successful to stop Infantry Squads from jumping out of cover without any order. squadAI files are files that make units behave more realistic, as if they were real soldiers. I never understood why Relic still made them search for cover while they already were in cover.
    Anyway, install this folder in the Data\squadai folder inside your ModFolder.

    Unit Icons - download

    These icons are the following units, and all have an icon, symbol and portrait:
    - Staff Sergeant
    - Grenadier
    - Volksgrenadier
    - Hauptmann
    - Leutnant
    - Waffen SS
    - Sniper
    - Commando Sniper
    - Canadian
    - Corporal
    - MG42 Heavy Machine Gun (Panzer Elite)

    Note: The quality looks worse on a blank background than they do ingame.

    Improved Rank Icons - download
    These will replace all rank icons shown in the Game Lobby to more detailed and shiny versions. A notepad is included with the fixed .ucs values to match the ranks. Just make a search for one of them and then replace it in your .ucs file.
    Please note that the American and Wehrmacht rank icons are made by Relic, but are unused in vCoH. I recolored the Wehrmacht ranks to make the Panzer Elite ones. The Commonwealth ranks are my own version of the vCoH Commonwealth ranks.

    Spoiler



    ui_selection - download
    This will remove all the rings around infantry/vehicles/buildings when you select them. Install the whole folder inside DataAttrib\attrib\.

    ui_territory - download
    This will remove all territory borders. Install the whole folder inside DataAttrib\attrib\.

    M7 Priest Track Fix - download
    These files will fix the tracks of the M7 Priest, making them rotate and synchronize with the wheels again. Thanks to Jagdpanther who sent the working files. Extract the folder in ModFolder\Data\art\models\races\commonwealth\vehicles, and change the animator of the entity_blueprint in the ebps of the priest to Races\Commonwealth\Vehicles\M7_Priest\Priest.

    P.S.
    Another interesting (unused) state of the M7 Priest is the upgrade_armor_state (which is the state_machine_name, and the do_action_machine_name is on or off, by default this state is turned on).

    M7 Priest



    M4 Sherman Cutter - download
    This thing has been made a while ago by Darkbladecr, but I totally forgot it untill 2 days ago and I made a quick skin for it. It's kinda crappy now but it might get improved in the future, and hopefully someone can make a normal for me. it can be applied through an animator_set_state which is called cutter_upgrade. A ReadMe is included.
    Anyway here's a picture:

    M4 Sherman Cutter



    105mm leFH 18/40 - download
    Coding/Project running by: Celéstial
    Model by: AGameAnx/Halftrack
    Skin by: Halftrack
    Animations by: Darkbladecr

    The 105mm leFH 18/40 German Howitzer, It's a complete package including user interface icons. It's buildable when you unlock the 88mm Flak 36 AT/AA in the Defensive Commander Tree with a cost of 450 mp and 65 fuel. It gains veterancy if you purchase the veteran vehicles (same as the 88). It's buildable exactly like the m2a1 105mm Howitzer.


    105mm leFH18/40



    You can use any of these files, just give credit to the persons involved. So for the icons that's just me, but for the M4 Sherman Cutter don't forget to credit Darkbladecr too.

    Good work. I was wondering when you'd join the club of mini add-on releases. I'll be sitting back and keeping an eye on this to see what else comes out of the Kung-Fu Modder. Who knows, maybe you could make UI add-ons your own little niche.

    Nice icons Celestial. With your permission I'd like to use some of them for my private mod. Where can I download them?

    Yes, of course you can use them. Just give me a little credit. They are not released just yet.

  8. #8
    Of course! though you won't see it 'cuz I'm the only one using my mod. LOL. It's only to enhance my personal sp gameplay experience. It's almost pointless to put up my mod since it's a smorgasbord of ideas already hashed out in these forums. If I was a more competent modder, I'd do a modern era mod. Hehe.

    Hah, just keep modding and you will become good at it, that is what we all have done.

    Are these icons all you need, or do you need others too?

  10. #10
    Napalm Strike? For Typhoon and P47 if youre taking requests?
    "SHIT!" "Watch your language soldier!" "It's not language! It's shit! Literally..."
    Life's a bitch... and then you die... so deal with it! Any questions?

    I need the ones I mentioned in Ninja's thread. Some of the icons you posted are useful though like infantry with 3 chevrons (US assault engineers) or the tommy with the maple leaf (Canadian shock troops) and pretty much all the German icons.

    By the way, do you have the corresponding portrait icons for these UI icons? Otherwise I'll end up with those pink portrait boxes. LOL.

    Celestial, if you release those great infantry icons, would you be including the corresponding portraits and symbols? I'd love to use the Volks and Grens with the swapped symbols for CoI, however i've been too damn lazy to fix the portraits myself, and their a pain to do by hand (unlike the Icons which are much simpler).

    Yes, of course. But in case of the Grens and Volks, they are really easy.

    Any ETA on those crazy Cannucks? I have Canadian Infantry (my own weapons mix) replace default for the Artillery doctrine, so that icon would be awesome.

    Would the icon show up over the troops also, or just on the build icon itself?

    Thank you. If anybody wants such an icon in vanilla style (I only do infantry), just tell me, and I will see what I can do.

    With AT gun, you mean the Boys AT Rifle? And what would you want with the Logisctic Officers? What "white" icon would do you have in mind.

    Celéstial,

    Do you do unit upgrade icons, or just unit portraits?

    I was thinking, a Boys AT upgrade button (like the Bren upgrade button) would be cool, as I was thinking of having it for Commandos perhaps.

    Thanks.

    Celéstial,

    I like your vanilla-style icons. Do you think you could attempt a Tiger Battlegroup icon?

    So like the Panther one, except it's two Tigers of course. Similar style, for the PE.

    Thanks

    Celéstial,

    I have another question for you, if I may.

    I have Photoshop CS4 and I thought instead of always asking for stuff I would ask how to do it myself. Some time ago I remember editing a Sherman Firefly icon to make an icon for a standard Sherman for the British; it didn't look particularly good, but at least I had a go I suppose.

    "Give a man a fish...."

    Anyway, what's the best/easiest way to edit icon layers for other icons? By this I mean, say I wanted to change a build icon into a call-in icon (with the little circle in the top right-corner, like on the King Tiger) how would I do that?

    I'd like to add the little circle to the Hellcat icon because I'm going to make it a call-in unit for the US Armour doctrine (which I've done before, and it works)

    Is this the right place to ask? :em:

    What about this Boys AT Rifle upgrade



    For adding the white icons, load the Alpha Channel of an excisting icon, unselect all except the white thing and copy it. Then paste it into your icon's file. and put it where you want.

    Mandead, Ninja117 did an upgrade icon for the Boys AT, and Relic has a symbol for the weapon upgrade in the game files.

    @gambit: Put them in DataAttrib\attrib.


    Oh, and yes, Ninja's Boys AT Rifle is much better IMO, so use his.

    Soon.

    So, sorry if its actually more complicated than this, do you just pose the in-game model through NIS or something and then touch it up in Photoshop? Or are you/Ninja actually making these weapon icons from scratch?

    I'd like to have either a Scope icon or the full Springfield 1903 w/Scope in upgrade-icon form, if you're using in-game models I might try my hand at it, but if its from scratch I'd be a lost cause hehe.

    Depends, what do you need?

  41. #41
    Well I was mainly wondering if the Canadian men would have the Leaf symbol and portrait or the regular infantry symbol and portait, and if not if you could make them to go with the icon.

    But I mean will there be a symbol and portrait to go with the icon?

    Ohh ok, kool. The Commando Sniper one is marvelous too. =]

    I'm curious, how do you get the picture in the icon to look like the men in the game?

  47. #47
    I thought of an icon idea, if you're interested. I noticed a while back that the Panzergrenadiers icon, the helmet and uniform in the icon didn't match what the unit actually has.

    Or does this count as a request? haha

    Nah, won't change vanilla stuff, I love 'em, Relic did a fantastic job on ui. The reason the PG's look different is, because in the early stages of Opposing Fronts they had a different skin.

    When I have my good pc again thursday, I will release the icons, finaly...

    Hmm, totally forgot to release these things.

    Download at first post, and an image is included. I'll try to make a screenshot from the other thing aswell. All icons are made by me so if you use them please credit me. All units have a build icon, symbol and portrait.

    Enjoy.
