I'm afraid I don't follow. What do you mean?
Welcome to your first steps in Civ4 modding.
To modify the appearance of resources, one has to change buttons (relatively easy) and modify the gamefont files (in principle easy, but can just as easily cause problems). Also I would include some xml editing (easy again).
First place to go for modding question is always the tutorial subforum: https://forums.civfanatics.com/forums/civ4-modding-tutorials-reference.177/
Here are some tutorials that could be helpful:
I have also attached a very simple mod that just changes the appearance of the iron resource. This should give you an idea how a mod needs to be structured and what kind of files you need to include. You need to copy the unzipped folder into your Civ4 BtS mod folder. (Should then look similar to this: ...\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods\NewIronGraphic\Assets\...)
Hope this is already helpful.
And here's a video tutorial I made on how to make a custom button:
Hey, guys, I followed your advice and actually made my own mod!! I threw it together real quick and it's not great, but it works and I'm super glad!
Congratulations! Looks very nice and I'm glad that you got the mod working so quickly.
If you are happy to share your work the best way would be to upload it to the forum downloads via your resource manager:
Also, althought there is no update on the frontpage anymore, some people still post in this thread when they upload stuff:
This way, uploads get noticed a bit easier. But you are of course also welcome to create your own thread, for example in the graphic modpacks:
Have fun with playing and expanding your mod!
I finally got around working on this. The building itself is done, but for some (currently unknown) reason it doesn't show up in the pedia. It does work ingame though. I will release it when I find out what's wrong.
Maybe it is to big for the pedia, so you have to make fInterfaceScale smaller? I know this problem from some buildings I downloaded here, when they are too large, the camera of the pedia is somewhere inside the building.
I'll make the movie ASAP.
I found the problem. Somehow the coordinates changed and the building was moved underground. Tomorrow I will do the last finishing touches and release it.
Movie is done:
Energy Academy (23sec)
I was redirected from mighty ships here with my graphic request. (probably in this place).
But, let's move on to my graphical request.
I need a 3d model of the commander of the European Union exactly as commander: Donald Tusk
links to photos that will facilitate making the model:
Are there any Mods that make Civilization 4's units look like those in Civilization 3? I'm used to playing the latter and don't like how each Civ4 unit looks like several sub-units on the map.
You don't need any mod, it is already in the basegame. Go to the options menu. In the graphics tab there is an option "single unit graphics".
I would like to renew my request for wild west and south states cityset
Would someone be able to create a canal pavement dds for cities (Venice/Altissia)?
There could be some paved areas but typically between the buildings, I’d be looking for straight canals. Is this possible or is it too difficult with the way pavements are used in the L system?
Maybe in Lsystem leeve and settle the channel / channels exactly between the buildings.
I have a question. I would like to install "Details terrain v2"
How can i so this? Just didnt find any Tipps in the Details terrain v2 thread.
Not a bad idea.
My requests are abit boring I guess by comparison:
I'd like to request a Hittite Lion statue, as well as a Hittite Sphinx statue. Basically as monument flavor for Ancient Anatolia.
