  • Hi

    I have a question and i really dont know where else to ask
    My question is this.
    Can you use the fantastic sprites that have been created for Napoleonic mods and combine them with the Sprites from gettysberg essentially combining the 2 in an OOB. will Scourge of war gettyberg work and if there is a way of doing it. i love the idea of seeing Napoleonic armies meet American civil war armies. I dont want to edit the way the game plays i just was the Sprites from Waterloo mods to work on the Gettysberg game.

    Can you help, i assume it must just be a case of copying over certain files to the OOB but im unsure.

    Thanks for any help

  • Here’s a fairly simple mod to get you started with combining Nap and ACW sprites. You can either edit the unitglobal file included or the renamed OOB file. Both files already contain some nap edit examples for demonstration purposes.

    When you edit the unitglobal file, this affects all OOBs. To change sprites here you edit only columns G-L. The NAP sprite classes to add in and replace the present ACW sprites are listed at the bottom of the file. I got them from the ‘Road to Wagram 1809’ mod.

    To replace weapons or flags you’ll have to edit OOBs, their replacements are derived from the NAP mod. Any OOBs you select to edit must be copied to this mod’s ‘OOBs’ folder and renamed.
    Prioritize this mod below the NAP mod in Modifications.
    Unzip and copy to the Mods folder:

  • Thanks Rebbuglar

    However i hit a bit of a snag as i can't get the napoleonic mod to work.
    however i found some sprites buy gunship that seem to work except from artilary and officers, which is a shame but as i am using an older machine and being very specific i'll take what i can get!

    Also is it posible to mix sprites up between union and confederate armies IE have union sprites in confederate armies and vice versa

    Yes, use that same mod. All the uniforms can be mixed, exchanging uniforms between columns H through L in the unitglobal file.
