    Hey Wangrin,

    I like your mod a lot . I got back into ETW just recently. I did some some textures with the mod I did back them called Ancien Régime...
    ...which is now dead as I lost all I had. Anyways, I must admit I became a bit frustrated because of the missing names and I became a bit
    too enthousiatic and modded my patch_eng.loc to make the propre name appear. I like the new models, the cavalry with brestplate under their coat im particular .

    I just started to play with textures again and I'm a bit rusty. I forgot a few things about the normal.dds and I couldn't believe it when I found it a a tutorial I wrote myself
    So to work my skills back I will have to complain about the french infantry because I like it with red cuffs better ... and I think it makes a better contrast with the compagnies franches...
    So I guess I could make a "Battle of the Abraham Plains Battle pack" having in mind Berry, de la sarre, de la reine and/or de Guyenne. The other 2 that were there were Languedoc and Royal-Roussillon
    and I can't remember on which regiment your line infantry is based on but I think those two are pretty close.

    Still I'm very impressed with the mod and find it awesome! I hope to see more of it.

    French line infantry : I chose to use blue (cuffs, turncoats, etc.) because it's one of the two most frequent colours used when I refer to Mouillard's plate and because I initialy wanted to differentiate royal regiments from queen/prince and gentlemen regiments.

    Unit icons : icons are build using a process described in [Tutorial] Modeling & DB. Milkshape & UU3D. 3DS MAX workflow. How wangrin and I use them post #32.
    Icon not only represent the unit but also add some more informations :

    • unit type : background color (red = line, green = light, blue = irregular)
    • unit sub-type (bottom left) : dragoon, heavy cavalry, etc.
    • unit origin (upper left), but could be replace by unit flag
    • unit class (frame color) : gold = guard, silver = elite, bronze = normal, wood = untrained/low


    Saffronbuyer created textures for de Bussy units, but I still have to rework gloss map before releasing them.
    Same for cavalry unit released, their gloss map are not good and I have to rework them.
    All the problem is to find the good balance to create an accurate specular effect depending of materials (polished steel, painted metal, leather, flesh, etc.).

    You can have a look at [Resource] Engine Texture Documentation and Creation Guideline.


    Creating good normal map is a big problem too.
    The only right process would be to work on a high poly model and then backing the normal map from it.
    But I have issues when trying to convert models into high poly ones. I think it is because I convert them to .fbx file format instead of .dae.
    Due to an unknown reason, .dae better keep model size.

    The other possibility would be to use a grey level texture as a base to create the normal map.
    This grey level texture could be used as well to represent shadows on the diffuse texture.
    I tried to explain this in [Tutorial] Modeling & DB. Milkshape & UU3D. 3DS MAX workflow. How wangrin and I use them, post #19.


    Some units are waiting for an accurate gloss map before being released.
    Textures are from Saffronbuyer.

    1. 2. 3. 4.
    5. 6. 7.

    1.Cipayes {Nellore} / Sepoys {Nellore}
    2.Cipayes {Pondichery} / Sepoys {Pondichery}
    3.Fusiliers de ligne étrangers {CFIO} / Foreign Line Infantry fusiliers {FEIC}
    4.Fusilier de ligne {CFIO} / Line Infantry fusilier {FEIC}
    5.Grenadier de ligne {CFIO} / Line Infantry grenadier {FEIC}
    6.Volontaires de Kerjean {CFIO} / Kerjean's volunteers {FEIC}
    7.Artillerie {CFIO} / Artillery {FEIC}

    CFIO : Compangie Française des Indes Orientales
    FEIC : French East India Company

    Some unit icons :



    I still have not find a good symbol for fusiliers.

    A variant could be to use yellow instead of blue for auxiliary units :

    hi,

    Just wanted to show everyone the mod is still alive by showing you some WIP:


    Gardes Françaises

    Gardes Suisses

    Gardes du corps

    Chevaux-Légers de la Garde

    Gendarmes de la Garde



    I work also on a couple more unit so eventually it'll be around a dozen of new units for next release if not a bit more. Bad news is that you'll need to wait a bit as there is still lots of work to do before a new update, but things are progressing slowly but surely.

    my nest question is: what other unit packs is this one compatible with, if any? I have AUM and TTW's British mod pack (for TAR, but im using it anyweay )

    i searched the word "compatible" in the thread, but the site told me it wasnt found which I found odd...

    Also, is there any enlightenment recently on the issue of the unit names not appearing?

    That's changed the texture. They are represented as pack. Pak can be registered as regular mods. To see this in the game. If you have not changed the names of textures.
    Thank you for the beautiful France!
