    Change log:
    ___________

    1.1
    ___

    - Added unique order & select sounds for Yugoslav units

    - Music files reduced from 96 to 64kbps

    1.04 (can be found on http://www.filegone.com/6qic)
    ____

    - Changed leaders attributes, now President and Marshal will act differently if you play against them

    - Added unique music which appears on diplomacy and city screen (diplomacy screen when playing against Yugoslavian empire and city screen when playing as Yugoslavian empire) and support for future unique orders & select sounds (for know mod uses english orders & select sounds)

    - Optimized yugoslav button file

    - Fixed some entries in CIV4GameTextInfos_Objects.xml file as well as connected entries in CIV4CivilizationInfos.xml and CIV4LeaderHeadInfos.xml.

    1.03 (can be found on http://www.filegone.com/tapu)
    ____

    - fixed look for Partisan button, Yugoslav civ button and both Tito's buttons. Now they look like other buttons since they don't have outline anymore which made them different.

    - fixed pink circle which appeared instead of button picture of unit when you select Partisan during the game and then scroll of the screen. Now there is Partisan button picture like other units have.

    - Added two files into parrent folder - FlagPatch.exe and FlagUnPatch.exe. IMPORTANT! IF YOU DO NOT SEE YUGOSLAV FLAG DURING THE GAME AND YOU ONLY SEE CLEAR WHITE FLAG RUN FLAGPATCH.EXE FROM MODS\YUGOSLAVIA FOLDER AND PRESS UNZIP! File FlagUnPatch.exe returns the flag to the original.

    *Note: While playing and testing first versions of this mod (and actually this applyes to all mods with multicolor flags) we noticed that (nobody knows why) there are two groups of PC's. The first group will accept ONLY flagDECAL files with White Alpha Channel and second group will accept ONLY flagDECAL files with Black Alpha Channel. Therefore I had to take one of those two flagDECAL files as primary (and that's the one with White Alpha Channel) and the other one (with Black Alpha Channel) you can get by starting FlagPatch.exe file from Mods\Yugoslavia folder (and pressing Unzip).

    1.02 (can be found on http://www.filegone.com/0e43)
    ___________________________________________________

    - Josip Broz Tito divided into two leaders – one "early" warleader from WWII (Marshal) and another one "late" President of Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia. Original attributes also divided: Industrious went to Marshal and Organized went to President

    - Button for Partisan changed

    - Partisan attributes changed (original: Strenght 22, +25% vs. gunpowder units, 1 First strike)

    - Team color (FlagDECAL file) renewed. Backup copy of renewed flag (FlagDECAL_Yugoslav_backup.dds), old flag (FlagDECAL_Yugoslavia_old.dds) and experimental flag (FlagDECAL_Yugoslavia_new.dds) also included (\Yugoslavia\Assets\art\Interface\TeamColor). INSTRUCTIONS: Copy desired flagdecal file into FlagDECAL_Yugoslavia.dds file which is active file for Yugoslavia mod

    U know what.. I like the idea..

    Probbably goes against, what you are tying to feel and do in this one.. but mayb e lose the STAR on the flag.. the star is basically just a representation of Communism... but having the BLUE WHITE RED. without the star could give it more neutral feel..

    JUGOSLAVIA name is kinda stale and worn out cause it has such a fabricated feel to it, .. I wish we could figure out a Better name for the Slavs that Live in the Balkan/Southeastern europe area.

    The star is essential.

    Srdjann, did you put in Tito's portrait?

    TITO PARTIJA! :lol:

    A very nice start.

    A couple of suggestions:

    How bout making Tito Aggressive and Industrious. Yugoslavia wasnt known for its minimal corruption, but it had a decent military and the epic myths of partisan exploits in WWII. And since Aggressive is actually Militaristic, it would fit.

    Whats Tito's favorite civic? State Property?

    About the Partisans. I personally wouldn't increase base strength, but I'd give them the Ambush promotion. Just remember those stories of partisans rushing tanks with blankets. :D

    And finally, how bout modding the skin to something more brownolivegreenish? More partisanlike. These boys are dressed up for El Amein, not Neretva and Sutjeska.

    And the star, keep it, there was no unity before it was put on the flag.

    Good stuff! And the star should definitely stay!

    How about a special tech: "Pioneers" - once discovered adds one extra culture per city :)

    Tito's portrait is inside, of course! :)

    I was thinking about putting an aggressive instead of organized but I thought that it may not be very well accepted ;) So, now when you suggested it as well I'm pretty sure that I'll change that (but I will not rush yet) but then I'll have to reconsider mining as a starting tech (because it leeds to Bronze Working and with Aggressive it may just be too easy to play since no one would mess with you early in the game)

    Yap, Tito's favourite civic is State Property. How did you guess that? ;)

    About Partisans - I thought also about that promotion (honesty :)) but since I rushed to finish this 1.00 version I didn't spend so much thinking about it. So since I plan to make this mod as a group work I figured it out that this promotions (and increased strenght) are not final and that a discussion will model it's final result. So, with this ambush promotion I was thinking about +20% defense in woods and jungle, mavbe this would be more realistic?

    Speaking of this, can anyone tell me what acctual change did I make when I changed Infantry's "Defending" into Partisan's "Counter"?

    I'm pretty unexperienced with this (I have never make eny mod for any game :)) so I'll need a lot of help. First of I noticed that Civilopedia text about Partisans is not appearing even though I put it into Assets\xml\text\CIV4GameText_Civilopedia_Units.xml in format like other units are?

    Also, speaking about making a Partisan skin much more brownolivegreen is "Spanish village" for me ;) so if anyone knows how to do it he/she is more then welcome to do it! :) Maximum which I could do is to make different thumb for Partisans, and I'm not even sure that it looks ok ;)

    Special techs are also out of my range, I didn't even know that such thing is available in the game! :)

    And at the end for this first response - the star will definitelly stay. It is the essence of this mod together with Josip Broz Tito and I don't know why should we be afraid of Communism - Communism is even a tech in the game! :)

    Well, I took a look at the pedia and stuff, fixed some links, added some info, check it out and mod it anyway you wish.

    Also, the partisans have a new skin. Partisan pilum mutat, non mentem.

    Link

    Download it and mod away!

    lol , is anyone ever going to build enough cities to get to Dubrovnik?

    I wonder how the other countries that were under Yugoslavia feel about this (ie. Slovenia).... Yugoslavia never was a civilization , just a union of Slavic states (with Albanians).

    This would definitely be useful in a WWII mod, however.

    Yugoslavia was a lifetime ago. Gone with the wind. Nobody cares anymore.

    Great! :)

    Two links were wrong (instead of partisan\infantry you left infantry\infantry) so I changed it and pronounced it as 1.01 version! :) Here is the link and I'll change the first post as well!

    You are now included as a co-author but I would like to make just one rule – anyone can be a part of making this mod (and co-author of course ;)) but I'll release new versions so that we avoid confusion. Ok? :)

    PS. It's very good that you changed that civilopedia txt about Yugoslavia (and added for Tito :)), it's better that 2nd Yugoslavia takes much of the space since it was the only real Yugoslavia! :)

    Thanks for the credits. I had a bit trouble with those Civ entries, the ones I made first caused errors(too big for Civ4 to handle) so I had to shorten them a bit. Its wikipedia material, just some paragraphs are deleted to fit size limitations.

    How do you like my partisan? That star on the helmet was a b*tch to get the location right.

    It looks nice :) but there is always place to improve ;)

    A friend from b92.net forum will try to make a Partisan to look like Prle from Otpisani ;) event though it now looks pretty much like Prle :D

    I'll play this mod for a couple of days and then we'll see about those changes concernig leaders and uu atributes! :)

    So, everybody - enjoy! :)

    15 years ago, i was a Partizan LOL,, everyone in the class got to march and sing and everything,, proud i was.. than it all went out the window lol
    i wish i still my little blue hat with the star on it.
    But it got used and abused playing war, than just disapeared like most of my toys

    THIS WOUDL NOT BE HISTORICAL AT ALL.. but maybe would be fun to have in the game..
    edit a unit,.. into a little kid partizan.. cheap to build.. doesnt have much punch to them.. but could be used in emergencies to guard the cities LOL.. with the blue hat, white shirt, and blue pants lol

    great idea i belive
    and i like to see my little town of kranj built faster than lots of others hehe
    who would ofthought hehe
    and btw i would too give partisans less power than infantry while they were guerilla and add some sort of ambush or woods bonus. throwing a blanket on tank hehe oh the bravery :D plus they would be either eays to build or caused no unhappines if drafted or something like that

    anyway i like it and soon as i buy a new graphic card and install my newley bouhgt game ill give it a shoot
    it would be good to play too as a scenario in ww2 or something
    thoug game but worth to try
    and yes yugoslav star withoud the flag? its not oly the simbol of communisem it represents the unity of nations under the idea of it thoug (but true there is no unity now is there) so i belive it should stay.
