    Still to come

    - new textures
    - new flags
    - altering the unit stats to give them more character
    - learning how to change the audio when you click on the units to add some classic sharpe lines (if that is possible).

    Installation

    You will need:-
    - Sharpe's rifles 1.72
    - UPC 4.1 (loc file) http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=259541

    - Put both files in the data file. Sharpe's_rifles is a mod file, unit compatibilty project v4.1 is a patch file. If you are using Sharpes rifles in combination with any of the mods in the unitpack compatibility project then delete the loc files that come with these mods

    -see this incredibly handy guide created by some hero's on this site for further info http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=238847).
    - Mod is enabled using mod manager by chambers.
    - mod was originally designed to be run with darth mod so that is why the unit sizes are so big. However I've altered sharpe rifles for vanilla size units and also attached as sharpes rifles van.


    Must thank Gilthanor for his help with the unit cards and the background descriptions.
    Must thank Swiss for his support in the unit compatibility project

    Hope this mod is of use for someone

    Any reason why Prince William of Orange cavalry look like the Blue Man Group?

    As I said this is my first mod ever, so the rifles and chosen men use green jacket textures and the two line infrantry units use the euro line infrantry texture.

    Learning how to alter textures and adding unit cards is my next task, but don't worry as I've got the bug now and I can't even play the game without constant ctd so I'm trying to get some value out of it somehow.

    Wait, Sharpe is from a TV show?
    Maybe it's just because I don't live in England or watch British television.

    he's actually from a series of books, which i'd be lying if i said i'd read. The tv show is cracking though. Get yourself this box set and 30 hours worth of popcorn and you'll realise why he's such a legend

    For getting rid of the red card, under the Pack file manager, under the units table
    (Units_table -> units )
    there are three model columns: one is for campaign picture, one is for custom battle picture, and the third is probably for the 'right click' feature which you have in both campaign feature and the battles.

    Extract the file, clone the relevent lines, (if it is 95th rifles then use the rifleman row) and change the name to the one that you are using for this mod.
    N.B. so that it does not completely remove the units file, call the file something else and delete all irrelevent rows to maximise efficience.

    See attatched picture for location in unit, table

    Very nice mod You should get pics ans post them

    Couple of minor inconveniences:
    Unit Names...
    Adding you mod brings British light infantry numbers up to 5 at least, one of the Green Jacket units has pretty much the same stats as the original green jackets...
    Other than the above, I really like this mod +rep

    For the names copy this patch en file over yours if you don't have any other mod units or make the changes manually if you do.

    Version 1.1

    added unit cards and long unit background descriptions with the help of gilthanor.

    Hopefully tonights promised patch will mean I can actually play the game, but if it doesn't expect much more on the way soon.

    How much fun is modifying games

    Doubt its as fun as using mods


    The unit cards work, the unit names work.


    All is brilliant.
    AND I'm watching Sharpe's Honour now Can things get any better?


    One thing I think you should consider is the size of the Chosen Men unit. For all their maxed out traits, I think you should try limiting their unit count to around 20 so that they're not too overpowered. Plus it would be another modding adventure.

    Love this. +rep once I've rep'd some1 else...

    strange that your unit name and background isn't coming up, as it's working on mine. Is this the case for all the units?

    I haven't tried with the other Rifles unit or the South Essex, but the same pic comes up for the Volunteers and with the Chosen Men it is whichever unit you click on previously...

    I have another mod; Mr Thib's French Revolution units (Sharpe vs Bluecoats, much more realistic )

    After fiddling around with the many mods I have, I still can't manage to get the unit names up...

    What worked with another mod is that he had MrThibs Revolution mod (as do I) so he tweaked with that to mak the unit names and background etc to appear.

    Would you know how to do this at all?
