Please note: This mod is not intended to condone or endorse Nazism, it's only for historical purposes.

The Historical Flag and Insiginia Mod has been updated for the 1.30 patch.

After alot of work and thanks to VPaulus's assistance this is a German flag and Insignia Mod that makes the game look more historically accurate.

Full Version Download http://www.mediafire.com/file/zncd9fqai ... _1.30a.zip

To install the mod you can use the Generic Mod Enabler. Full instructions on how to use GME can be found here viewtopic.php?f=147&t=27158. If your using GME extract the zip file to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Slitherine\Panzer Corps\MODS" or from within GME click on tasks then import mod. I highly recommend using GME since the mod can be easily disabled so if you want to post screenshots of the game on the forum or playing the game in front of someone who could be overly sensitive then afterwards you can re-enable the mod.

You can also install the mod manually by copying and pasting the contents of each folder with the same name in your Panzer Corps install folder.

A few notes about the mod:

With the 1.20 patch the mod will switch between the original logo when clicking on the Allied Corps Icon on the campaign selection screen and the modified logo with the nazi eagle when clicking on either the wehrmacht or AK icons. I can't guarantee that the mod will work properly with Soviet Corps since I'm unable to test it. Also Allied Corps or Afrika Korps is not required for the mod to work properly.

Some will probably notice the eagle faces to the left rather than the right. It's supposed to be a Officer Visor Cap insignia which historically along with Wehrmacht breast eagles always faced left. I thought it was perfect since from a roleplay point of view you're a German Officer or General. For a historical comparison you can look here on the Axis History website http://www.axishistory.com/axis-nations ... ignia-heer

I included a modified version of the panzer_taskwindow_02_03.png that is loosely based on actual WWII German military documents that I figure not everybody will like, if you don't want it make sure to delete the image before installing the mod.

The full version also comes with the library German plane images from the 1.10 patch before the swastika emblems were removed in 1.11.

One last thing, if you own the Gold version the main menu screen will still have the original PC logo with the gold icon. If you want the modified version for the main menu picture just rename the original one to match the new one. I did this mod years ago and didn't want to do the whole thing over again and recopying jpg images will cause it to lose quality.

Afrika Korps Add On
This is a optional add on that can be used with the historical flag and insignia mod when playing the AK expansion. It replaces the eagle in the headbase and purchase screen with a Afrika korps insignia. It also includes a briefing letter with a AK rubber stamp. With the 1.20 patch the add on can be used along with the historical flag and insignia mod, when you click on the ak icon and load up a scenario or campaign it will use the AK headbase.

Great job. :D
Maybe you could add an option with the whole package include in one download. I'm sure some people people will want the whole package. :)

Thanks!
The second version is the whole package but with the additional changes. Also the only difference between the two downloads of each package is one includes your flags and the other doesn't.

Ok.
You've retouched the medals, didn't you?
They look much better, now. And the Wehrmacht eagle, after so many indecisions, really end up being the best solution.
Congratulations, it's very good. :D

Please could you also post in the Matrix forums, as well?

There all new medals, I found a bitmap image of a Iron Cross on Google images and copied then pasted the whole inner part of the medal into the original. I think it turned out very good. :)

Scott, we will need your skills for extending your mod to Afrika Korps.

I do have something that might work for Afrika Korps but from looking at the screenshots it looks like it still uses the same headbase and flag from the core game. To be honest I haven't been keep up on the details for AK. Do you know how much the new add on will cost for existing PC owners?

We don't know yet.
I only know for sure what differences we will have in the final version of AK. But besides the maps and the main menu screen, the rest might not need to be changed.
I can do the adaptation myself (with your approval of course), or even given you the screens for you to work, in case you can't buy AK. :)
I could use my mod, but I think your mod is better than mine.

While we are here I wanted to ask you if you would mind if I make your mod the default UI setting for Panzercorps East ? :D
I havent ask before because its still far from release but I think its time to get some basic things done before continuing after AK release.. :D

As long as I get credit for my work anyone can use the mod as they please. :) I didn't upload it just for people to look at. :lol: I've never understood why some people are so stingy with their mods. If people want to use my work, I consider it a compliment.
