Also planned are several GUI improvments. Little things here and there.

Hope to release a first package in a few days... until then here an screenshot ( with some informations on it ) how it looks ingame atm :w00t:

Great work EOOQE! I like that new (NCP style) counter gfx showing the whole upper body of the generals and not only the head. That can mitigate the fact that some general faces have somehow minor quality compared to others. It also nicer to see there uniform and medals too.

The flag in the upper left corner is with some countries (like Russia) kind off blurred or unclear. With your screen the French flag look more bright and clearer.

When you finished your mod, maybe it could be fully implemented via patch into WoN. Would be cool to enhance graphics for all.

Thank you .. and yes , those blurred flags are some kind of ugly :blink:
Therefore all will come NEW from scratch like here (also showing new Army Outliner that is in the making , not 100% done yet of course) :

Very nice!
I like almost everything! Specially the stack count! Brilliant!
The only thing i'm not so sure i like is the leather background under the detail panel portait... I think portraits looks better with a lighter color background..

Cheers!

It looks formidable! :coeurs:

I really like how you erased the flags in every province. Now the game looks more beautiful and elegant and It was redundant information since you can see the owner of the province with the filter.

Or a woodcut background!

All in all looks excellent!

Very good, I like what you did, so congratulations! The only thing that bugs me is the counter remade with 2 tones of colors, the portraits tend to overlap on each part.

And Inspector panel got a little love today.

I've never been greatly interested in graphics mod, unless they bring something functional to the table, but this is really beautiful, plus the stack count IS useful :thumbsup:

Without wanting to ask too much, if you could put the Corps and Army diamonds and stars on the on-map stacks, that would be like Christmas in Decemb .... :confused: oh, wait .... ;)

I find the main menu background screen (Napoleon + Map) kind off odd to be honest. Something like that would be nicer:

Maybe these designers are willing to share that under a creative commons license?

Meh, disagree, this is a bit too cartoonish to me.

Was just a proposal. What would you like instead? WoN deserves something more emotional than a map.

How about that:

To be honest that image of the sombre Napoleon riding in front of his entourage + behind it a map of a napoleonic battle talks to me, I like to recognise the map of Waterloo, or Borodino, or Toulouse...

Wow, that's amazing. Just by giving the wimple at the top a 3D touch it lends the entire counter 3-dimentionality :w00t:

As PhilThib!

Not sure replacing the red/blue banners with hardcoded British/French will work in all case though...

Aye , my "plan" was to use those flag banners only on HQ/Army Level units . The rest would be the same as in vanilla.
But maybe i have an better solution for this , based on leaders only. Need to test some ideas ...

Will give results and feedback later today

I know this will be a dumb question, but what do those little banners represent? The little colored strip at the top of the counters. In my games I haven't been able to figure it out, but I'm sure it's something obvious.
