    Icon1 NOIF's Boshin War Mod (NoBWN) - HISTORICAL FLAGS, BANNERS & UNIFORMS 22.3.2013


    NoBWN FOTS HISTORICAL FLAGS, BANNERS & UNIFORMS

    Introduction

    I have played TW games since 2000, when Rome Total war came for us. These years I have followed a time here in TWC. Enjoy share a good moments with others. Shogun 2 made it much worth for me. I decided work with wallpapers, but later I have found another interest target, Recoloring uniforms and banners. Since shogun 2, I saw Demokritos and his greatest recolored uniforms and banners. I was really blessed, that he was here and share his works for us. Later, Demokritos has become busy with his IRL things, so I decided make lessons by him and he teached me, how can use these recolors uniforms and banners. I want hope he can see my works while he has focused to important things. Thanks for Demokritos!

    When FOTS released. It bring new features, graphic, textures for us and while I have played campaigns, I must say: uniforms are cartoons, awful and too simple colored. I decided working with uniforms recolors and take new step for my works. I wish by you. Give feedbacks, comments, shouts, praises about my works. I take your suggestions as happily if you have good ideas. I have updated this thread with better and clear banner and now have BUTTONS for fieldsets!

    I want welcome you to my NoBWM thread!

    agents have same icons like on battlefield. ( I removed those red-white campaign and battlefield banners by Satsuma, Choshu, Tsu and Tosa, because it

    - Helmet colors changes,
    Example: your helmet is red, but when you move your camera closer to your units. a helmet change color like yellow > dark orange and red > purple.
    - Flag colors
    Example: Some flags looks different as it should be. Like I colored to green-blue, but graphic and sun color make it different so it looks like Green one.



    1. Download my NoBWM -mod (It find under CREDITS)
    2. Place the extracted pack file into the data folder of S2TW, which in the case of XP is usually found along the following directory: C:\Program files\Steam\steamapps\common\total war shogun 2.
    3. Make sure you don't have any other mod of this kind (including older versions of my mod) installed simultaneously there, because it might interfere with the function of this mod or the game itself. For the same reason, if you want use any other mod of this sort, you have to remove mine (just drop the file elsewhere) first.
    4. Enjoy!


    IF you get any problems about my mod, contact to me. I'll try fix it as quickly I can.

    Released "Beta" version about Tosa -faction uniforms. I believe more improves will coming these days and Tosa will get some small changes. Now I can tell I 'am working on Aizu recolors. After Aizu is coming Jozai (I got bad feeling and shocked, when I saw first time Jozai uniforms during my test). Thanks about cheering comments. I working happily now, always focus get perfect recolors for all factions.

    Germanicus: It depend, I 'am searching some historical references when I find. If you can find some documents. Tell sure for me, so I can test it. In otherwise, I focus to recoloring for better.

    nice work noif, but i dont understand why you changed the tosa colours to dark brown. they now look exactly like aizu. the "little bit recoloured" screenshots you posted are perfect. it would be good if you could do a version where each clan is recoloured in this way. that is to retain their faction colours but to be toned down similar to the "little bit recoloured" screenshots.

    I wondering same, because if Tosa units are in sunny and watch closer, they might have looks brown as I have tried darker jacket. But I need remind you: that is "beta release" and I am still working on Tosa to find better color for it. In ACC MOD v1.1 Tosa will get improved and better uniform and not look same like Aizu.

    ACC MOD v1.1 NOTES:
    - Tosa unit uniforms will get update.
    - Aizu unit uniforms release
    - Jozai unit uniforms is now progressing and should come to v1.1 with Tosa and Aizu.

    Well, Noif, this mod will save the game for a lot of people! I commend you for this iniatitive. I also appreciate it for taking some of the pressure off me to do something similar. Now they can turn to you instead. Thank you, my friend.

    The work so far looks very promising. Keep it up! I'll return to this thread many times to check how things are developping (judging by the screenshots, as I have no comp to run the game anymore).

    So how far do your plans go for the expansion: all playable clans are to be recoloured? There are no minor clans in the expansion (in need of recolouring)?

    First I want focus to playable factions and after that is DLC clans turn, because I dont have Tsu, Obama and Sendai so it will be hard make any test without "All clans playable" mod, otherwise i need make test on campaign. After I have worked with Playable + DLC faction. I will looking foward with other factions recolors and maybe banners if I have time after uniforms. I will also aiming to historic references, when I get more documents. Boshin war not have many good pictures than Sengoku or Sekigahara, so I need use my imaginate and make a perfect uniform for all factions.

    Good idea.

    If you think I can help, just let me know (in PMs).

    I appreciate the name change to NACC, too. That way there's less risk for mod confusion on this site.

    When will 1.1 be available for download? Also, are the colors you're using historically accurate? Thanks for taking the initiative on this.
