Description: Defcon Mod that modifies the look and 'feel' of Defcon.
Details: Modifies the graphics, music/sounds, as well as unit descriptions (compatible with all map mods)


Introduction: Your mission is one of the most important mission that has taken place every
year for hundreds of years. This mission requires you to do the impossible: DELIVER
PRESENTS TO ALL THE BOYS AND GIRLS ALL OVER THE WORLD. You must position your distribution
system before Christmas Eve. It's Christmas, and everybody wins. But maybe - just maybe -
you can show your generosity the most.

Crap. You beat me to it :(

I was going to do one for halloween too, but procrastination set in :(

Although one tweak you didn't implment was to change lasers into snowballs....

Very good indeed :) Very imaginative use of string replacements.

I think this Mod would benefit a lot from a new theme and (possibly) world graphics : ie a more christmasy look to go with the unit graphics and captions. Ie lots of white and red, and warm orange glows.

hmm I tried to replace laser.bmp with a snowball (included in the archive) and it didn't show up...maybe I did something wrong-- does it show up for you?

Aww, does that mean if my opponent says "HoHoHo, Christmas presents coming in!", I can't tell any more whether he's just trying to be funny or running this mod?

someone should time a office-mode defcon so that defcon 1 happens at midnight on the 24th :-P
BTW: that's why I made the request in the beta forums to allow mods to change the thing that appears when defcon changes (I'd prefer Defcon 5 = dec 21... Defcon 4 = dec 22 defcon 3 = dec 23 defcon 2 = dec 24 and defcon 1 = dec 25th (midnight)...and then you have till all the little boys and girls wake up (victory timer) to deliver all your presents to the other countries :-)

I definitely think a well made theme would be awesome (any takers?) but on second thought a custom map isn't so great---I want to be able to play regional xmas defcon (on everyone's different maps) so that I can bring toys to all the different regions :-) or in a polar style--as well as vanilla defcon
