Hopefully, I will be posting links to the new version of the TT Mod sometime today.

I will try to quickly produce a Global Mod version of the TT Mod for Empires modders to work with, along with some brief instructions on how to use it with a modded version of Empires. I am a bit concerned that many players will think this will just magically work with the standard version of Empires, and will start complaining when their games start crashing to desktop! So there will have to be a lot of warnings in big red font!
That would be great, Paul! Thank you for your generosity.

The visual overhaul progresses slowly but steadily.

Here's a small preview of the new Diadochi/Hellenic textures:

Once again, all credit goes to Paul59 and his TT Mod.

Hi Bercor,

The Spartan Pikeman in your screenshot has an issue with it's Normal and Spec textures. The ones in the mod look fine in FOG2, are you using those, or did you make your own for some reason?

cheers

Hi Paul!

I used the vanilla Normal and Spec textures in every phalanx/pikemen model because otherwise (using TT's files) their shields would look too angular and with ragged edges, instead of round, as they should. For that reason, you see those "decorations" in the Spartan Pikemen shield, which I personally think that look fine.

This issue doesn't happen in FoG2, but for some reason is quite visible in FoG Empires..

How bizarre, but not unusual. The games textures seem to have many weird foibles.

The one that really confuses me is the "long banner' problem with modded banners. I have worked out a solution by trial and error, but why it actually happens does not make any sense at all!

Very true. The engine has a few peculiarities I still struggle to understand.

Hello

Really looking forward your mod. Will you in your mod add some flavor regarding banner on the map?

One of the thing who can put you deep in the game is to see your army holding the standard of your nation and not something with a random color.

That is something I intend to work on a later stage, yeah.

Looks Great. Are you looking for any assistance w modding. I've been tinkering about and made my own small mod but would be interested in contributing to this superior endeavour.

Hi SGZ!

The project has been on hold for a while but is certainly not dead and any help is appreciated.
