    As the title says, I had created some new flag decals:

    1. The classical Coat of Arms of United Kingdom, useful if you play as Victoria



    2. The 2 Eracle's columns, from the Spain Coat of Arms. Probably the most know symbol of the Spanish monarchy




      The file (Ace, about 11Kb)

    3. The standard German eagle, used since Holy Roman Empire.



    4. The Seal of United States of America



      The file (Ace, about 11Kb)

    Rufus, I really like the German decal, much prefering the eagle. But how do I install it in the game? Help with this would be really appreciated. Thanx

    Rufus, thanks for your quick reply. One problem: I love gaming but I'm not too technical. How do I open an ACE file to read it???

    Every serious archiver (like WinRar, WinAce or Powerarchiver) can open this extension

    Rufus, This may seem like a dumb question (ok, it probably is a dumb question!) but I can't figure out how to install your decals into a mod file to make them work. Please could you give me a simple instructions of what file I need to open and what I need to write in the file...
    Thank you.
    Yours in fraternity, Roops

    7-Zip doesn't. But it does open everything I'd care about.

    Without the accents yes it is French..But it is commonly believed the Doris Day song was referencing the Spanish..but being (sloppy)Americans they left off the accents.

    Nice flags Rufus..btw
