So, to simplify put the shader file to the noshader file's place. It will be the same too.
Why do I always have to be so confusing! ARGHHHH!
Check out the map in my sig when you're at it
Very nice! Post this on CMC too, please!
@veBear & Nitram15
Thanks for the help!
I dig the Greece and Crete Map.
Thank you... you're welcome
Hey, the Ancient Greece and Crete maps look really good, but how do you get them to load and use them in a game?
Never mind that last post. I figured it out. I is smart like that.
Nitram15 and veBear,
When, in an LH folder doesn't come straight out and say what the button is, like:
BTN_(Leadername)_LH.dds, what do I use for the button. Thanks.
Usually it will just say the leader's name.
So for instance, say you are DLing a John F. Kennedy LH. USUALLY the Button will say something like BTN_JFK_LH.dds, but sometimes it will say Btn_JFK, or Btn_Kennedy, or Btn_John_Kennedy.dds etc. Or it might just say JFK.dds, or Kennedy.dds. It depends on the LH maker's preference.
If you have a specific LH in mind, just ask about that one and the maker (or someone who has it) will let you know.
When I don't have a button I usually use a button from one of the Basic leaders, usually from the leader who would fit best. For example, say that i have a Solomon LH based on Darius, then i will use the Darius button for him.
Some of the folders don't even have files that say BTN_(whatever they put here)_LH.dds or a file that has the new leaders name .dds in it. But they do have a file that says: (original leaders name)_nrml.dds. Would I use that or something else?
I'll try that for the folders that have those type of files. And would it change the final outcome of the leaderhead, or would the final outcome be the same as if you had had the new leaderhead button?
Do not use the _nrml.dds file, as it does something compleatly different. Using another button will only affect by having a button not totally like the leader shown up, and is good for placeholding. It does not afftect how the leader will look in 3D.
Here's a guide that can help you: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=268684.
Which LHs did not have th buttons, by the way?
I know that Odysseus is missing a button.
The list is pretty long...
Of the ones I'm using in my new unique leaders mod coming out soon:
That it is.
Come on, making a simple button for a complicated 3D model is really not a big deal .
