    Does anyone know of a Command and Conquer or Red Alert graphics pack for Civ2 MGE or ToT?

    Been thinking about making a dark and moody one heavily based on C&C2 Tiberian Sun just for fun. But there's no point in me wasting my time if someone else has done it haha.

    The only Civ2 C&C scenario I can find is this one by @wonx2150 :
    https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/civ-2-c-c-mod.9958/

    He converted in a number of units and buildings but didn't really do much with the terrain. I can't be stuffed making a whole scenario so I'm thinking I might do a C&C graphics update for his instead heh. I'll release a separate graphics modpack too for those not interested in the scenario.

    Would be easier making a ToT graphics conversion due to the increase colours however his scenario is MGE so I guess I'll be putting my pallet conversion hat on lol as I'm too scared to even bother touching the MGE to ToT scenario converter lol.

    Hi Blake00,

    I'm not aware of any specific graphics pack related to these two games but if you are looking for modern type graphics there are a number of places you can find them, including the following:
    • Scenario League - Modern Units here
    • CivFanatics - Modern Unit Graphics here
    • CivFanatics - Raging Dragon scenario graphics here
    • CivFanatics - Download Section - Modern Scenarios here
    I hope this helps.

    Thank you Tootall. Those are great looking packs but yeah I'm after actual C&C graphics ripped from the games so I had to do it myself haha.

    Here's some comparison pics of @wonx2150 's original graphics (mostly default Civ2 with a few changes here there including some rather funny looking tiberian lol) versus my new overhaul graphics either ripped out of C&C mix files or drawn by me.

    Note: I have NOT touched any unit graphics yet. Just done terrain & cities. Will probably change most special resource icons too.

    Wonx's ORIGINAL scenario graphics:

    Blake's OVERHAUL graphics:

    I've also given each faction custom command centers matching their faction colour and also custom walls (eg NOD bases get their laser fence, GDI bases get their firestorm walls, and Neutral bases get GDI base walls with little turrets)
