    Default Seven Year's war mod (sponge)





    Sponge: Seven year's war mod




    Hello. As there have been quiet around the spongmod for some time now iv'e decieded to continue working on the mod. The author of the mod is joedreck so credd goes to him.


    My aim is to make complete and accurate unit roosters for all factions that was in the seven years war.
    Prussia, Austria and Bavaria have almost complete roosters but other nations are half complete. Hopefully next version will feature more complete roosters for more factions. Some units are also missing unique unit cards atm.

    The list of completely and partly eddited factions is:

    Prussia
    Austria
    France
    Great Brittain
    Russia
    Bavaria
    Sweden
    Netherlands
    Denmark
    Poland-Lithuania
    Saxony

    Factions that needs to be edited:

    Spain
    Hannover
    Württemberg
    Westphalia - perhaps change it's name to Palatinate?



    Changelog 1.0

    New historical reskin off sweden
    Change colour scheme for prussia to the blue colour from gary's prussian army mod
    Additional prussian textures from Preussens Gloria mod by Megasalexandros
    New faces for prussian units
    New texture and better model for prussian arillery
    New faces for Austrian and Bavarian units
    French units from Seven years war french mod (Nec pluribus imbar)
    More sponge units available in grand campaign
    Other minor changes


    V 1.05 - Just a quick update until V 1.1
    Changelog 1.05

    New model and tweaked artillery textures for many nations
    Redone hungarian line/grenadiers
    New textures/units for Austria from Sir Chicken Digby Ceaser
    New cavalry unit for Poland
    All swedish units have better faces
    Better faces for russia
    New unit icons for Prussia, Austria and France
    Austrian grenadiers have been disabled for France
    Some nations can no longer recruit vanilla line infantry
    Reskin of Saxon rooster
    New textures for Netherlands from United Provinces mod
    New texture for russian drummer
    New officer for the red hungarian regiment (esterhazy)
    Better faces for all hussars
    Some units with texture/model-glitches has been removed
    Swedish guard infantry/grenadier now has better stats




    To do - Version 1.1

    • Better reskins of some vanilla sponge units
    • Coustom officers and drummers for units who lacks one
    • Change artillery crew model to line infantry model for all nations
    • More unit cards
    • A complete rooster for Austria and Prussia
    • Disabling units with texture glitches and unit that uses vanilla models
    • Adding textures from ♔Sir Digby Chicken Caesar♔ to hungarian hussars, grenzers, pandurs.
    • Austrian hussars from Danovas Ornamentum mod
    • V 1.1 will also contain a non visual surprice



    Regarding the prussians i have combined joedrecks, my own and Megasalexandros textures along with gary's blue colour to get them as accurate as possible.



    Note: if annyone has photos of real grenadier mitre caps or replicas from 1750-1765. It's hard to find good photos of grenaider hats so anny contribution is welcome.



    Install instructions:

    Download the rar pack or torrent file
    extract it to Empire Data folder
    activate with mod manager
    enjoy

    Also make sure to get the latest UPC
    in bottom of this post, provided by ToonTotalWar.
    Just drop it in Empire Data folder


    Download link v 1.1

    Torrent file:

    (Link provided by F@32 - Thank you)
    http://www.gameupdates.org/details.php?id=4941


    Direct download:

    (Links provided by Megasalexandros thanks)
    https://www.rapidshare.com/#!download|937|3210041266|%CE%9D%CE%AD%CE%BF_WinZip_File.rar|529068

    http://www.gamefront.com/files/21262070/sponge.rar



    Important:
    The mod contains lot of content so it may not be compatible with other mods.
    It does work with Darthmod but make sure to place darthmod above sponge mod
    in mod manager. Other skin mods or patch packs should work fine as long
    as it dosn't affect the same units.





    Thanks to:

    Excellent news !
    To release the mod, maybe could you split the rar file into several parts for direct download.
    You can also release the file using torrent.

    The French line cavalry model is almost finished (lod1 and lod3 done, lod4 in progress).

    Thanks mate. I will try uploading the file on depositfiles later this evening. + rep

    As for now i have only added two units from Preussen Gloria mod. IR 12 Erbprinz von hessen darmstadt line and grenadiers with my own mitre cap and IR 27 Von Kleist wich has replaced the frie infantry. I will continue adding unit's from PG in next release. I have also enabled many more units in Grand campaign than in vanilla spongemod.

    Hello. The mod has now been released. Had to pack it into a rar file to compress it (duh ). It's now around 433 mb.

    Ze French! Ze Freeeench!!!!!!! Jésus Marie Joseph et toute la famille, this is beautiful.

    I just ran a test with them against my beloved lobsters. Full graphics, full sound, gigantenormous unit size and all the business. Probably got close to melting my computer, but the show was worth it. Thanks a bunch ACMilan88 for taking over Joedreck's fantastic work and bringing us closer to a complete (or as close as possible) 7YW pack. I'll soon be out of excuses not to get back into ETW.

    PS: Wangrin et all: great work! As small as the preview was, it is very promising.
