Cameos for units that are unbuildable

Recommended Posts

I'd like to include a cameo for every unit that is unbuildable. I was thinking of:

 

-A generic background

-And some text at the bottom of the cameo, like every normal cameo has

 

Anyone up for making them? They're needed for mods that make these units buildable, the sidebar glitches graphically because these units dont have a cameo.

It's also fugly as hell :P

 

Would that be a separate icon for the buildings and units? Or just one for all?

 

I'd say, take a background with the "FAKE" banner over it, only with "NO ICON" instead of "FAKE".

Could you add the text "GRNL" at the bottom like with normal cameos, Allen262? I'm not sure how well it'll look in-game, so after that's added we can see. Nice start though.

The icon is from ra.afraid.org and used on the info pages for CS and AF. I'll change the background blue to remap yellow. Yes I have the needed things to add text to icons.

 

Also ra.afraid.org may have some icon in the may mods it has listed.

I don't see the use of adding the internal code to the ingame icon...

He also created alternative wide-screen resolution cameos which come with EVA-style placeholder icons.

wide-screen resolution cameos? Those are just a lazy cutoff of the darkened bottom part :P

But the unit is never named "General', it's either named Stavros or Volkov.

General is the name used in the conquer.eng. Stavros and/or Volkov are done by Name= in the map it self. Name= was made for CS as before that [GRNL] was only used of Allied 9s misions.

Yeah... they just recoloured it a bit for the different ant types.

 

On a related note, in the missions themselves, the different ant colours are actually simply done by assigning the full-remap ant to different houses.

Did you try calling them EINSICON.SHP and DELPICON.SHP? IIRC the game cuts it off after 4 characters.
