    Default [SUB-MOD] Portrait Enhancement Pack **Good Factions RELEASE (800+ new portraits)**

    PORTRAIT ENHANCEMENT PACK



    IntroductioN
    Hello everyone and welcome. This sub-mod significantly increase the quality and the number of portraits in the game with the addition of unique theme portraits that were previously missing for some factions. I want to note that some of these portraits have been already added to the latest DaC versions and either way this is just a partial release, the sub-mod is still incomplete since all the evil factions are still missing. More than 800 new portraits have been made so far and many more to come.

    Hello everyone. I have been playing TATW for so many years now and currently enjoying DaC very much. I started creating some new portraits for my own a while back since I have grown tired of the old ones, especially for some factions like the Dwarves and Northmen who were lacking in this regard. It was supposed to be just a bunch of portraits at the beginning, but I got carried away with that and ended up with quite a good amount of them.So I thought that it would have been a nice idea to share them with the community. It's not that much of a "game changer" but I think it could give the game a fresh vibe, especially to people such as me who have been playing for quite some time. I would like to state that the new portraits won’t replace the old ones, just overwrite the duplicates.

    There are seven different types of cultures and I am planning to cover all of them. But it's going to take some time because the work is relatively easy but boring and take away a lot of time, especially getting all the research material.

    I made more than 60 new Dwarven portraits and I am currently working on the Elven and the Northsmen ones.


    Dwarven Generals





    Dwarven Spies (currently they share the same portraits with the generals and I think it is a bit annoying to end up having a general and a spy with the same look during a campaign). I made 25 new portraits out of the same picture, mixing beard/hood colors. Here some examples:





    Dwarven Diplomats





    Download link will be provided when I get all the job done.

    This is great and something I would have considered doing for my UI and Text submod some day, but I'm glad to see someone with more free-time actually doing it!

    If you'd like some assistance and more hands to cover more portraits, let me know any time.

    Great work! Many new dwarven portraits that I've made will be released with DCI: Last Alliance and only a couple are of the same guy.

    As far as I can gather Rohan and Dunedain share the samefiles, but they are in two different folders:
    -northern_european folder: Rohan, Dale, Vale of Dorwinionand Bree-land
    -mesoamerican folder: Northern Dunedain, Vale of Anduin, Enedwaithand Dunland
    Somebody corrects me if I am mistaken.
    My plan was to completely overwrite the Northern Dunedainfolder and create a new one from scratch because I really don’t like the waythey look. It will be a mix of Gondor and Rohan portraits (both from the currentversion and my sub-mod) with the addition of some other unique ones. They probablywon’t look too dunedain-like because the presence of the Enedwaith peopleant the other factions must be taken into consideration but they will be definetily distinguishable from your typical northman.

    Unfortunately, you couldn't just give the Northern Dunedain the proper portraits since they were given the Wildmen culture. I honestly don't see why their culture couldn't simply be changed to "gondor", for the sake of portraits and UI. Even if some portraits are in Gondorian soldier helmets, it'd still be more fitting.

    I have them but they are not the originals. I made them putting together pieces from many different portraits. They are far from perfect so if someone can provide me with the original ones it would help me.

    You should consider using faces from Viking reenactors when making dale! It gives the portraits a more rounded and real feel, instead of just characters from movies.

    Amazing job.
    The wicked men culture (Rhun+Harad) was one that I didn't manage to create that many portraits. I'm curious to see what you come up with if you get to them.
