    Maybe you can change the colors of the Belgian Congo Star and background to make them look like the Belgian Flag?

    heres another quickie:

    Alright, here are three for your perusal:


    Number 3 is based off of the colours of the modern Congo flag. I didn't do a red on black, since I figured it would mean the units could get easily confused for barbarians, and I didn't do a yellow on red, since I figured with the star, it would look a little Chinese, though I can make those if you'd like to see them.

    I'm torn between 2 and 3, could you provide me with your personal reccomendation?

    Hmm... I guess I'd pick 3 then, since the black background covers up some of the shading on the icon.

    So this is awkward... I thought that this:

    Was supposed to be a Coureur des Bois icon. Thus the whole:
    Since I used a forest near Trois Rivieres for the background, I figured I'd remake it so as to make sense.



    Also:


    Thoughts?

    It actually was supposed to be a Courer des Bois its just being used a placeholder for French Indochina when it comes in the forseeable future (2016 wohoo!) the Zouave have some weird background issues the right but they still look great!

    EDIT: Might as well make a new Unit just to complete the set

    Again thank you!

    I would like to request for a golden age/tourism/faith icon that is similar to when a city use the process of research and gold.
    Or preferably a better version of this?

    I have an icon request for a natural wonder... I'm using the Lake Victoria 3d graphic for Loch Ness, but I'd like to have an icon without a Hippo in it :) .

    I'd appreciate the help as I'm not certain how to make Civ style natural wonder icons.

    Hello, are you still doing unit skins?

    If you are, may I request a retexture of the Hebrew Slinger to look like this:



    or the Inca Slinger to look like the guy in the middle of this?

    Or a texture of any of both units that resembles one of those in the images really? :crazyeye:

    Thanks

    If you're still doing unit reskins do you think you could make a horse artillery model for my James K Polk civ? All I want is a horse and cannon together in the same model. The horse doesn't need to be pulling the cannon, there doesn't need to be any movement or attack animations, it doesn't even have to look good, it just has to have a horse and a cannon. You could probably do it by getting the Cavalry model, taking out a horse or two and replacing them with the Field Gun from the Enlightenment Era mod. If you could do that I would be so grateful :)

    Sorry, that's actually not something I am able to do. That's actually editing the 3D model itself; all I can do is reskin the texture file that goes on the 3D model.

    A savior like you actually exists! You are amazing (if you do this) <3

    I'm using Framedarchitecture's Amer-Asian resources (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=173140593) with his Resources Expanded (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=299488556) -content in my earth map project (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=573421735).

    Can you create icons for maize and coffee that look better than the originals? Maize is in upper left corner, coffee below it: http://postimg.org/image/t97yji68l/ -- Needed icon sizes for an atlas are 256, 80, 64 and 45 whatever units the database system of civ5 bnw uses. I'd also need an SV icon. If this is too vague, I can try figuring out the exact units (me not used to graphical editor)

    Something like this: http://previews.123rf.com/images/ju...ted-on-white-Stock-Vector-corn-maize-husk.jpg and this: https://wallpaperscraft.com/image/cup_coffee_coffee_beans_82112_2560x1600.jpg

    Why not use the icons from Tommy Wisseau's Civ Advanced mod?

    Wow. Such a thing existed, thanks for pointing me to it. These will do just fine!

    Looks like he googled the same corn graphics I did. :')
