Blank scenario maps

Would it be possible to get scenario maps (the same ones used in the scenario selection screen) but without the PC logo and rubber stamp? I'm working on a briefing screen add on to include with my Historical Art Mod and it would be a big help. Maybe one of the devs could upload the original map templates used in creating the scenarios.

To clarify I want to have a image in the briefing of the overall scenario.

Just for clarification: You're talking about the file "panzer_taskwindow_02_03.png" in the \UI folder, right :?:

It would be a image of the overall scenario that would show up in the panzer_taskwindow_02_03.png. I already have one made for the Fall Weiss scenario but for Norway its a little harder because of the logo getting in the way.

Why not google for a non-copyrighted map like:

This is an example, its still a work in progress. I thought about using real military maps but I would rather use the ones from the scenario selection screen since it matches the UI better. Besides real maps would be very difficult for the fictional scenarios like the invasion of the US.

I found some like that but in my opinion it doesn't look right with the theme for PC. I guess I'm to much of a perfectionist. :P

I fully agree with you, Scott. I won't call just perfectionism, but the need to be graphically balanced.
That's why I like your work.

Thanks. I can't stand it when things are mixed with other stuff that doesn't go with the game. As far as I'm concerned if you add in a new graphic like my eagle for example it needs to be consistent with the rest of the game or whatever mod is being used.

That rubber stamp I added on the briefing is supposed to be a commander and chief of the Wehrmacht stamp but I might remove it, I don't want to take the whole nazi thing to far. :)

Yes I understand that. But I don't see nay harm. I would make it only less "perfect".

If the author published this mod in a German site, yes there could be a problem. But this is no different than other mods here.
My historical Insignia mod has also rubber stamps with swastikas. SS-GCTP has an SS symbol as a flag.
To my knowledge Germans have already downloaded all of these mods. They don't care about the ban.
