    I would like to use the Seaxman Flag icon (from 1066 scenario) in my Civ 6 mod. How do I pull the base alpha file from the game... Where is it? Thanks.

    Regards,
    Craig

    Resource\DX9\DenmarkTextures.fpk (you can use Dragon Unpacker to open it).

    You need to extract both the .dds file and the ...index.dds file, and decode them using this tool.

    Do you mean the Saxon Huscarl (who's carrying an axe, not a seax--i.e., a short sword or dagger)?

    That scenario came with the Denmark DLC, so unpack all your FPKs with the Civ5 Nexus script, or grab Dragon UnPACKer and open Resource\DX9\DenmarkTextures.fpk. Either way, the file you're looking for is either unitflagatlas32_dlc_04.dds (or unitflagatlaswhite32_dlc_04.dds for the white version). You'll need to deindex it with the DDS Unpacker, which will turn it into a PNG file, which you'll then convert back to a regular non-indexed DDS.
