Fighter Graphics Mod

Postby Kinping » Wed Oct 04, 2006 9:39 pm

BIG EDIT!
I reorganized the whole mod, so that it will comply with Version 1.2 of Defcon. You now can enable and disable the fighters by choosing so via the mod-interface. Also it is possible to enable or disable the mod ingame with direct effect on the graphics.

There is only one zip-file now to download. Extract the zipfile into you defcon directory. Necessary folders will be created.

Have fun with the mod ;-)

Find the file here: http://www.flashpnt.de/defcon/Fighter_Bomber_Replacement_Mod.zip

------------------------------------------



Hi Community,
this very little project started, because I have seen the avatar of "XF Clohvn" and on top of that I didn't like the icon for the fighters in the game. It is the only icon which I think could be better. Other than that I really do like the icon style.

So I started googling for some fighter schematics and came up with new fighter graphics. I did conserve the style, so fighters blend in real well with the other icons and of course the bombers.

But see for yourself:


FIGHTER SECTION

Harrier style fighter (by popular demand):

F22 Raptor style fighter:

Stealth fighter type aircraft:
This aircraft design is the one to match perfectly IVs bomber, which I personally like. It is not designed like an actual aircraft that is in use, but is some kind of "stealth-looking" fighter, just as the bomber-icon from IV is a "stealth-looking" bomber. To see how it matches the actual IV-bomber-icon I have made a screenshot with a bomber and fighters.
If you don't want real types of aircrafts, but rather a more matching plane to your bomber-icons - this is the file to get...

INSTALLATION

An installation guide (readme.txt) is inside the ZIP as well as the preview graphics shown above.

Of course you can use the files as you will. You can distribute the files and you can put them on a mod site. But 1st: If you put them on another internet site - please tell me so that I know and 2nd: Distribute the ZIP files - do not repack the files inside, do not leave some files out.

I Personally think a Vulcan and Lightning would add a kinda 'cold war' feeling in my opinion. I Currently love the EF 2000 though, gives Europe their own piece to call their own. :D

Would be cool if you could use multiple ones @ the same time and have them randomly generated each time you "spawn" a fighter...

Now do bombers, make them as big as possible so they are easy to tell in the heat of battle :D

actually I think you can only have one type of fighter and one type of bomber. But that really doesn't matter that much. I do like the bomber icon of defcon. I just didn't like the fighter icon.

The F14 or F18 do look like cold war. The F22 suits the looks of the bombers...

Yes, you can only have one... It would still be cool if IV could eventually make it happen :P

Personally I like the original Bombers, so don't change them. :P

As for fighters, any chance u could try a "Harrier Jump-Jet" style?

For those who didn't want that "nuke" symbol on his userbar... :)
"Surely you didn't mean to press that button just then did you?"
"No, nor will i disarm the nukes."
"Oh well, I will have my Fighters shoot them down."
"Sure you will."
"Oh NOES, ITS BEEN PATCHED!!!"

Kinping, you are my HERO...

My ONLY graphical gripe was with the planes... I will use your fighter mod FOR SURE.

I think the bomber should look more like a B-52 or a Soviet Bear, in fitting with the cold war. The stealth deal is ok, but still, that would be better. If you wanted to be a super-cool modder, youd hook us up and let us use it since you so obviously have some sweet skills.

Chicks dig guys with skills, you know. :)

Thanks again!!!

EDIT: Or better yet, A B1B / Backfire graphic... mmmmmm... late cold war bombers.

pllleeeeeaaazzzzeeeee :)

Hmmm ;-) Who could resist(?)...

I see what I can do... But it will probably be not before Friday night, before I can come up with more Fighter/Bomber Graphics...

You mind if i put these links in the Modding Team thread? Just so that everyone knows where they are and people don't try to make the same fighters (eurofighter for example) that you have done.
