Thats a new version of Frederick the great ,with a new face that was made by my Friend FLIKITOS(rep him for it), iam not implementing it now to the full modification as it will require an re upload of the whole mod but iam placing it as an optional file bellow in the download section as a patch
This patch also fixes the sabeltasche of the cuirassiers to a more historically correct shape.And the icon is Wangrins
Thats the First version
I DONT KNOW IF IT IS VANILLA COMPATIBLE but i know that it is DMUC compatible cause iam using it with it( i suspect that if it has a problem with the vanilla version of Empire that is due to the equipment theme of cavalry Dragoons and Cuirassiers who are carrying both a straight sword and a carbine , which as far as i remember couldnt in Vanilla, vanilla had only the curved sabre i think)
Place the Preussens_gloria file in the Empire/data folder and then write in your script the following lines (mod Preussens_gloria.pack; )
The new fusilier caps models made by me, and the new great looking infantry textures made by A_MENZEL my good friend and assistant on this mod, his textures use actual pictures of the real deal the real uniforms of the Prussian regiments of the period, and they are done after relentless historical research from his part, and attention to the tiniest detail .
The file named "MOD" contains new tricorn model for the Prussian infantry depicting an earlier type of tricorn from early Seven years war made after a LOT ,and i mean ALOT of research , conversations and experimentation in order to be as good as possible.
New horse saddles for every regiment of Preussens gloria,that takes alot of space due to the great size of the horse textures.
Changed stats so that they will resemble more the Prussian discipline and quality of the army,i like them as they are in DMUC so i think they are compatible ,but thats a matter of taste maybe.
Corrected gloss files for a variety of horse units , some weight and texture corrections for the gunners, and a brand new General unit that can be used for Prussia instead of the vanilla one
And complete correct unit icons made by WANGRIN (well all of them apart from the artillery icons and the 6th grenadier guard icon the first was made by A_MENZEL and the second by me)
FIRST AND MOST OF ALL TO WANGRIN he is the man who helped me learn everything that allowed me to create that mod, from model making, to providing me with material for every use, him and FLIKITOS who learned me some really essential stuff for texture making
I also want to thank A.MENZEL who provided me with every kind of vital historical information from pictures to suggestions,and historical background that helped me and will help me in the future to finilize and further improve details that are yet to be corrected.
And of course to my friend MAGNUS who offered me PRECIOUS historical material and i was able to finalize and make better my mod.
And Also Flaviuss for helping me , and for using certain model parts from his work. Like the pigtail i think
I also ask for forgiveness if i have forgotten to mention anyone ,and if someone thinks that he should be mentioned then i kindly ask him to tell me so that i may include him in the credits of PG
Some units from my mod.( The mod contains 17 historical regiments of Musketeers, 16 Grenadiers, 4 Cuirassiers, 4 Hussars , Artillery units ,horseartillery, field artillery and bombardiers(howitzers mortars) ,3 Dragoons and a General unit of Frederick the great, with historically "accurate" officers for cavalry units, Officers ,drummers and banner bearers for infantry units.(the preview is not at all complete, a minor portion is presented)
If someone can get past the bad resolution , this film is the greatest thing i've seen about frederick the great, Otto Gebuhr is perfect for Frederick the great and the environment that the film creates is very very convincing, who ever is passionate about the great king, i can guarantee that will watch the film with enjoyment , very nice battle scenes, and with a heroic undertone that has nothing to do with modern decadent films.

Haha you dont like the ah ok thats typical
There are numerous political user names in this forum depicting criminal regimes but i didnt saw anyone protesting of course this is another issue that it is not connected with the whole spirit of this forum so ill leave it as it is.
Ive included one cavalry unit, for Prussia.
And I have changed the line infantry with a different texture and a different model. i have included an Irish model making it look like Prussians
i have also changed a bit the color of the original line infantry, and i have included one more unit that uses a model of a cavalry and makes a great infantry unit.
And also i included the Coldstream guards in Prussia with the Prussian colours
But i repeat this mod is only for those who have the Special forces edition

No problem either way the textures at least the white part of the texture was not of my making, it was the games problem
I can fix it by reducing the brightness of the white parts of the textures , all thought i didnt considered it a very important matter and i didnt fixed it
the problem is or was, that all inf units from all factions glow.
I didn´t now about your mod. I can´t use your units because i have the normal empire version.
But nice units give them a name. It´s not so important about historical correctness.
ca named the prussian cavalry guard household.
