    Default Clan Retexture Project: ALL playable clans retextured and released! (Ikko-Ikki released!)

    PLEASE NOTE:
    This mod is discontinued, as far as I know it does not work on later patches and most of the download links are probably dead, I don't have neither the packs or the original files on my computer anymore, so I can't help with links or adapting it to the new versions ,sorry.











    CURRENT DOWNLOAD-LINK (All clans):
    DOWNLOAD FROM RAPIDSHARE
    Thanks toMcCarronXLD for this! if anyone could provide additional mirrors that would be great










    Introduction:

    I really dislike the original look of the units in this game, the colours are just way too much for me, and there's no variation at all apart from some colours. Therefore I have decided to retexture every playable faction in the game. I'll mostly just modify colours etc. But also add a few details, So it's really nothing big, but still.


    Mod Credits:
    -Me, for textures and lots editing, releasing etc.
    -Zowrath, for support, aid and ideas, getting the whole thing started.
    -Yarkis de Bodemloze for the basis of the entire mod-structure, making the whole thing work as it should. (Db-editing, naming files correctly, plenty of advice etc.)
    - The Hedge Knight for advice etc.
    - ToonTotalWar for support, some dbediting etc. for the 1.5 version and the no Horo's fix and much more.
    - McCarronXLD for TROM-versions of the mod.

    without these people this mod wouldn't be possible, so they deserve plenty of credit for it aswell.
    I'm sorry if I've missed anyone, it's not personal, just bad memory! Thanks to everyone in the community for your support, feedback and compliments.


    These mods include my less gloss-mod for the units retextured, since I simply don't think they look good with all the gloss. If you want the gloss back you'll have to edit the .pack-files yourself and import the original gloss-files from the game and replace those in the pack. This mod should not affect any of the other clans. All the screenshots below are taken with the less gloss-files. Enjoy!

    Please report any bugs or issues, or units missing the new textures etc.

    Please note that this mod requires more texture-memory than vanilla Shogun 2, and will probably reduce performance.

    ADDITIONAL MODS:

    The downloads here are small additions by me aswell as other mods adapted to work with this mod, enjoy!
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    HORSE "FIX" (by me):
    If anyone wants horses without the old colours, here's a small "fix" which removes the faction colours from the horses and gives it a light brown/beige colour instead, this will apply to all factions:

    BANNER MOD (by me):
    Here's a .pack that modifies the colours of the banners on the retextured clans to suit the new textures better, just put it in your data-folder (updated 30th May, New banner for Ikko-Ikki!):

    NO HORO'S FIX:

    Better Unit Cards Mod COMPATIBLE WITH Additional Units Mod! (by Coconutfred, adapted to this mod by ToonTotalWar, New AUM unitcards made by ToonTotalWar aswell, +rep to him for this!)
    http://www.gamefront.com/files/20386...Fred_Icons.rar


    If you are using AUM, there is a version compatible with my textures:

    If you are using Radious Units Mod, he has made a version compatible with my textures:

    Without:
    http://www.twcenter.net/forums/downl...o=file&id=3460

    Thanks a lot to McCarronXLD for this! (he did it), and thanks to the TROM-team for their great mod!

    If anyone wants to make other additions to the mod (for instance, making it compatible with mods that add new units, unit-card mods etc.) feel free to contact me and we'll discuss it, and I can put those mods up here in the first post for those who want it. I can also provide some advice on how to do some of these things, many things could probably be done without modifying any of the bigger files by having a pack thats loaded before these ones, overwriting things like unit cards or db tables.






    And that concludes the mod! Please report any bugs, but try to first disable other mods to make sure it's not just a conflict, but an actual bug in my mod.
    Enjoy!

    Depending on when PFM is ready, I think I should be able to help you as I did a lot of work on ETW even I never released much of it. We'll just have to re-designate new textures in the tables, but that shouldn't be a lot of work. The hard work is of course making the new textures

    That would be great. Is it possible to release one clan at the time that way? Since the filesize will be quite big if I include all textures, and it's better if people get to choose which textures they want and don't want to use. and how compatible will it be with stat-changing mods?

    If the tables are anything like ETW, and I think they are, the files we got to edit is (in ETW structure):

    db->

    building_units_allowed_tables

    unit_required_technology_junctions_tables
    unit_stats_land_tables

    unit_to_unit_abilities_junctions_tables

    units_tables
    units_to_exclusive_faction_permissions_tables

    warscape_animated_lod_tables
    warscape_animated_tables

    ui-> units->


    icons

    info


    unitmodels->

    textures->

    This is if the structure is similar to ETW, and we may not need to alter all these files depending on how we go about it. It's more like the maximum files needed to edit, but perhaps fewer. But yes, with stat-changing mods one could expect having to integrate them. Though it is not difficult with WinMerge or similar program.

    Ah, I was afraid of that, but still, it's better than nothing! I'd gladly accept your help when the tools are out, Dbediting makes me crazy, haha.

    Hehe, you concentrate on the textures and I'll do the DB's when a working PFM is out!

    colors look much better, maybe the white needs to be a bit less bright too?

    Hey looking good so far, I love the brown armor.

    I am going to be doing my own work on textures as of tomorrow, maybe I will show you some and you can use if you like.

    Maybe those white rounds could be removed from ashigaru completely, or could be changed to a little messier paintjob for realism?

    That's a pretty good idea, I'll keep it in mind, at least for some factions, that would make for more variety aswell.

    Perhaps the clan crest could be where the round white dot is? And it is pretty much round already

    I am pretty sure I saw the triforce symbol on Asigaru in other games, so yes that seems accurate.

    Kind of depends on the crest I think, anything too elaborate like the Date symbol seems like a lot of work for common troops. Right now I can't help but feel like seeing those white dots as nice target markers for enemy archers. Probably why archers are doing so well in this game.

    Well, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the Takeda clan:

    I hope people don't mind the coloured armour on the ninja, I think it helps distinguish them from other nations,

    He managed to recolor several factions and it works ingame, I tried out the download.
