Thread: [RS all] - Quintillius' Enhanced UI graphics [v4.3]

  1. #1

    Default [RS all] - Quintillius' Enhanced UI graphics [v4.3]

    As we all know Rome I - Total War is dated. Thanks to the Roma Surrectum team it has a lively modding community and tries to improve
    it's gameplay and textures. But one thing did annoy me. The UI (= user interface) textures. So I've decided to make a submod of my own.
    During the progress I've tried to come close to the original Rome/RS textures to keep the immersion.


    List of Features


    [v1.0]
    - Replaced ugly building icons for Romans with new models
    - Replaced/edited all building cards for Romans (pictures above description)
    - Completely new world and battle UI (notice the small icons, every detail is changed)
    - New texture for scroll
    - New main menu background

    [v2.0]
    - 39 new high quality loading screens with famous quotes game hints and astonishing historical facts

    [v3.0]
    - New UI textures for all cultures
    - Replaced ugly building icons for Greeks
    - Replaced tax building icons for all cultures
    - Replaced missing improved Roman texture
    - Replaced black UI arrows by improved golden ones as requested many times

    [v3.1]
    - Added missing texture for loyalty icons
    - Replaced diplomacy icon texture with better one
    - Edited influence icon texture

    [v4.0]
    - Newly improved battle & campaign UI for Romans
    - Removed main menu background, because RSIII background is better
    - Submod is compatible with new Athens (RSIII) faction now
    - Added new (red) buttons (Romans only for now)

    [v4.1]
    - Corrected small faction icons for special campaigns as reported by dvk
    - New event cards for Greeks
    - Loyalty icons are better recognisable now (added shadows)

    [v4.2]
    - Revised 11 loading screens (added new quoation, tips and corrected typos)

    [v4.3]
    - Different colours for selected and unselected unit cards (factionspecific colour: bronze for Greeks, red for Romans, yellow for Egypts, cyan for Persians)
    - Fixed jagged edges of glassware at big picture for glassware import building
    - Revised ugly building icon for mines lvl 2

    How to Install

    Copy the contents of the .rar file to ...\Rome - Total War\.
    It must overwrite files, click yes to continue.

    Funny fact: it's savegame compatible! All I did is replacing textures, so it
    is savegame compatible. It should work for all versions and mods of RS, including future ones.

    Nice! Downloaded. Did you made that only for the Romans or for all other factions?

    [!] - The changes only apply to Romans currently. Works for both One Turn and default campaign.
    And that did cost me months...

    Thanks to see you like it =)!

    The more replies to this topic, the harder I'll work. Thank you!
    It's still surprisingly how lively this subboard is.

    I see that in your screenshots your game has a somewhat different lighting. Do you use any graphical modifications, or maybe bloom effects?

    Looks good, and uhh, it's not malware. Thanks.

    edit: my only critique would be make more of a difference between selected and non selected unit cards during battles, there is not much of a difference between the two but there probably should be.

    Hi,

    great job, indeed.
    Some of building pictures are really inspired, howewer others are less... no criticism, just observation. It's about personal preference, i think.
    Thanks for sharing! + rep.

    Quintillius...this is REALLY excellent work. I downloaded it and I will certainly review and use most of it. I love the pictures of buildings you've used in the UI! Keep up the good work. I didn't think there was anyone still interested in doing such quality work in old RTW. You will, of course, get credits.

    It is amazing to see one of the RS developers here, praising me =p. I would love to see this included in RSII itself.
    But may I suggest to wait a bit -> a new update is on the way.

    One thing makes me restless. Namely replacing/adding the buildings models for battle map in RSII. But I see the files are in .cas format, a rather old extension.
    I saw a few converters on the forum to use, but I didn't get managed to convert these files to a Milkshape file. May I ask which tools you've used for RSII?
    Also do you mind telling me the location of the roman portraits? They are barely findable.

    Download this tool: http://www.twcenter.net/forums/downl...?do=file&id=43 there are instructions for it's use.

    Go to the RTW main data folder/packs. Copy ui_0.pak and ui_1.pak files, dump them in a separate folder, unpack these files with this tool and you get the pictures...

    If something goes wrong - the pack extractor won't unpack the ui files, copy the entire content of the packs folder, unpack all, throw all but unpacked UI file in Recycle Bin, and you have the pictures. Good luck.

    I'm waiting fore some new roman family member faces...

    The plan is to bring back the quotes and put them in the loading screens.
