    Default Ancien Regime ETW re-texture ( France, Poland-Lithuania, etc...)

    Welcome to Ancien Régime.

    This is a realistic re-texture project for ETW. Since I love history and uniforms, to reskin ETW became a little hobby. ( I reminds me when I used to paint miniatures ) All the texture are based on history you can see this incredible source of information for yourself below. I began with France but Unfortunately (or fortunately) I like to spread myself and now, You can find all kind of textures to bring the overall visual aspect of ETW to a higher level.


    As you can see there's plenty of work to do and I'm already working on some more but I do It for my own pleasure...
    I'm still in the process of learning the art, I would be glad for any advise or comments..

    Here is what is done fow now: ( last update 08-07-09)
    -Poland-Lithuania vo2 ( updated for patch 1.3)
    - Poland-Lithuania vo1 is out! ( see poland section for download)
    - Ancien Régime unit mod by isilendil
    France:
    Ancien Régime France V04 should be the final version ( well at least for a month or two) Most of the French Texture have been changed but some like sepoy, native or african infantry are unchanged. All the textures ( exept for coureur de Bois ) have strong historical references but, of course a well trained eye might discover some fantasies ( I hope you will forgive me for thoses..) The main document I used for France is the Mouillard plates that you can consult by clicking the link below.

    Mouillard plates


    Ancien Régime France v04 is what you could call the core pack. It contain all the textures but the line infantry. After installing AR France v04 you still need to choose your linr infantry either from the AR French infantry package or anywhere else on the net.

    Unlike France and Spain Poland Lithuania has no infantry variant for the moment, so all the textures you need are all in one patch and unlike the other textures you download them here:

    Spain:

    Unlike France, Spain is still work in progress. All Spanish textures have their own patch until I can set up a more complete package for spain but are all zipped together.
    For the present, I have used two main source that you can consult bellow...

    Ancien Regime ETW unit pack by isilendil
    Isilendil has created a French unit add-on with the French line infantry from the infantry pakage I made. A little mod for those who want them all and cannot choose... don't forget to thank him
    http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=263493

    Across the web...
    I don't think I can retexture all of ETW by myself ( unless maybe if I dedicate myself to it for many many years...) but I can find nice textures on the web made by other peoples that matches with mine ( having an historical background and pleases my artistic tastes, my director's cut ). There is a lot of textures and nice mods but using a lot of different mods may affect compatibility ( which I care about ) so I will only recommend textures that will not affect compatibility.

    Prussian and Ottoman Empire
    For both of them, I use Remo Prussian and Ottoman pack. I like Remo's textures for the color
    brightness matches well with my textures.( and Remo has also lots of creativity )

    R-texture Project

    British
    For the british I recommand to have a look at what Legofinger and his team( Kave-In, Dynamo11) has done.

    British Re-texture Pack
    The Lego Pack
    AWI units+textures

    United Provinces
    There is one United Province re-skin out and it is one of the best made by Jarno and his team
    United Provinces Retexture Project - "Light Edition" (v1.0)

    Russia
    I suggest Hellfell work on TGOTRE
    TGOTRE light 1.1

    Alternate French units
    Here can you find a link to Psycho V French Project. You can find for the moment a variant of line infantry and white grenadier. At the moment both pack are not combatible ( unless you repack the grenadier with Pack manager) but nice varriant ( if you know how to repack )

    The French Bourbon Army


    This section will also evolve with time ...

    Install info:
    All those texture are now Patch.pack and you just need to extract them in
    your your data folder

    note: I put all thoses texture on-line to share with the comunity, Anyone is invited to use them as they whish, given proper credits.

    Hope you enjoy...

    Special Thanks:

    This is the hardest part for you always forget someone. So I won't start to list all friends and suporters But I would like to thank in particular:Radosław Sikora and Jan Chryzostom for the immense help they gave me with the pole uniforms. Janrnomiedema ( and his team ) Magnus72, Remo, Megasalexandros, Hellfell have also been all great source for inspiration. Many other peples helped out like Ziem, crepe100, KLA for uniforms template and other like Salvo or Roslolian but all the modding community deserve a big thanks...

    thanks Hollowfaith
    I do sure plan to do some more. Horse Arty are in progress as well as cuirassier and regiment etranger and .... In the Ideal world, yes I would do the
    entire french army but right now I only know how to play with the skins, but I learn fast btw you might remember me as Rama on the TW forum...

    Unfortunately, This mod is only good for regular artyllery ( demi-cannon, 12 pounder...) It doeesn't work for guard artillery or rocket but, of course, I'm working on it...

    I'm leaving you with a screen of cuirasier in progress...
    The original plate doesn't show a white stripe on the turnback but I like the Napoleonic touch..

    Oh hey Rama!! Good to see ya! Yea i'm through with those forums. Way to many whiney folks there and not enough gameplay discussion on tactics, game mechanics, modding, and so forth.

    As for the cuirasiers...
    I like it! Keep up the good work mate!

    Hopefully us modders can turn this slag of a game around!

    Very promising mod, Orion! I think your French Line Infantry is the most royalistic-looking Line I've seen so far, with those beautiful different shades of white, golden buttons and cuffs matching the colour of the lilies of the Bourbon flag. You've given me a new favourite variant here.

    So I gave you your first golden ring in TWC...

    @ Preussen Gloria

    I'm sorry I sometimes take tings for granted. there is basically two ways to install the mod. Put the packs in your data folder and run modmanager which can be obtained HERE

    then, Run the modmanager, uncheck see all and then check the mod you want to be effenctive
    (the easiest way)

    or

    Go to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\The
    Creative Assembly\Empire\Scripts\

    this may be tricky because it is HIDDEN!!
    open a text file named: user_empire.script
    then enter a command string:

    mod ''name of the pack''.pack


    I think it should do the trick

    Do you need the Mod Manager to use your skins?

    @ G3nuine chief
    You don't need the mod manager but the files are Mod.pack so it is so much easier to use the mod manager to configure your mod rather than editing the user_empire.script file each time you want to activate or deactivate a Mod

    I tough of giving you a little teaser of my French general. The general is almost finished ( need to fix the sash among other details ) but the body guard still need collar, laces and color balance...

    Here is my source of inspiration

    In addition to General and Bodyguard I'm working on French officer, grenadier, carabinier and horse arty.
    For now I don't plan to do Les Vieux et les Petits-Vieux since the original texture is not that far from what it was

    the sash looks a tad too garish, tone it down a bit and i think it will look fantastic

    this is easily the best french skin pack available

    Small tip: you can mix this mod with mr Thib revolution skin pack and they will switch perfectly in the GC !
