    One thing to remember is that when putting in these buttons, the OLD ones need to be deleted. Otherwise we going to have duplicates again.

    I like it, sparth. I can see an issue arise if the culture's color is similar to one of the new group colors you've established, but the samples definitely differentiate the UUs from the other units.

    Oh that's a good idea! :clap:

    The only problem I see is if they ever get assigned to another culture. Such as the Koa use to be Polynesian until we added Hawaiian culture. Note Polynesian now has the Outrigger.

    Also if the flags ever get changed too. Which has happened from time to time.

    I like it provided you'll be around for a long time to come due to H's valid points. (And I hope you will be too because you do great work and have really become a very valued team member!)


    Sidenote: My wife was saying the Orange behind the Throwing Units made some of the weapons a little hard to see correctly so I don't know what you'd want to do with that.

    And keep in mind that Strike Teams and Criminals are different unit types (albeit similar and crossing paths at the Assassin) so it might be nice to differentiate the backgrounds in a way that allows for the two to blend if the unit is both but be different if only one of the two. Could help to point out the difference to newer players. Something to consider anyhow.

    Tnx TB :)
    Anyway when culture will be chaing in some units just send me PM and then I change the button.

    Which particular units? I want to stick with orange colour which is between red melee and yellow ranged units (which throwing has something between of these two type of units :)

    Which units should be strike teams? Sniper, Sharpshooter, Modern Sniper, Ambusher and Assassin?

    She mentioned the atlatlists and I'm wondering if the Javelineer might also. I do LIKE the orange so if you do something like a slight glow around the weapon to generate a bit of line contrast it could help.



    Yes... and more after like the Special Forces - it's one of their sub-combats so you can search the units for UNITCOMBAT_STRIKE_TEAM for an easily generated list.

    ========deleted previous comment===========

    Could someone take the time to make a copy of the old unit icons and keep them on the forums in the C2C mod section? Honestly I prefer a lot of the old icons compared to a lot of what I'm seeing. (No offense, Sparth.)

    Love this idea, and the circular hero buttons though.

    For now unpack and copy this file to Caveman2Cosmos modmods\Assets\XML\Art\
    Should work. But this file is one of the most changin file in mod and I think I prepare just modmod with old icon files with my new names. This solve problem with XML compatibility.

    For now all heroes buttons are in cirles. Also many heroes got better and more accurate buttons now.

    BTW Gladiator (not Spartacus!) should be moved from Hero section to normal unit section.
