    This mod enables the TC2M Federal Greatcoats mod for SOWGB play. The troop sprites have been re-colored to better match SOWGB textures.

    Five sprite types are included for each side:
    Infantry - kepi, blue pants
    Iron Brigade - brimmed black hat, white pants
    Regulars - kepi, white pants
    Officer
    Artillery

    Although not included in the original mod, identical but grayed CSA sprites have been included to provide both sides with winter uniforms and additional modding possibilities.

    Once enabled all Sandbox and User Scenarios will display Greatcoats' sprites. A sandbox-scenario has been included for a quick look at both armies facing off, it was used for testing, it's called '-Greatcoats'.

    EDS (Enhanced Death Sprites) is utilized with this production, so no need for BloodBath.

    I believe credit for the sprites goes to Tim, looks like his fine work. Thanks to Dean80 for providing the download link making the sprites available for conversion.

    Unzip and copy to the Mods folder (Unzips with 7zip , free download...)

    Just tried the link and it works for me.  Maybe your anti-virus app is blocking it.

    Could someone else check this download link, it should be safe, it's from the old reliable NSD server.

    Very strange. Just tried again, nothing. Everything is good on my end, just downloaded couple of scenarios off of "The Blitz" wargaming site for Campaign Series WW2 game.

    Also, as a test, I just redownloaded the "True Ground" and "Maryland Campaign maps" with no problem.

    Hey,
    I've been trying to hunt down mods here myself and I did manage to download Greatcoats. What I did was use Internet Explorer. For some reason, it wouldn't let me download with Chrome. I guess the security system blocks it.
