Tampa_Gamer -> [REL] Character Symbol Mod (2/28/2012 5:38:29 PM)

Attached are the character symbols from my personal mod. I will also try and post my character pack later this week.

***PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS FOR LEGENDS, IF YOU NEED THE SHADOWS VERSION, PLEASE SEE POST #7 BELOW***

Here is a screen shot of the images (download link to .zip containing the files is at the bottom - don't hit the attachment is that is just the screen shot)

Tampa_Gamer Character Symbol Mod v1.01
Distant Worlds (Legends) version 1.7.0.12 (but should be compatible backwards through release)
March 3, 2012

========================================================================
INTRODUCTION
========================================================================

Distant Worlds (Legends) adds the concept of RPG-like characters to the game. These characters each have a "card" in the game which contains data regarding the character as well as an image of the character (typically a "head and shoulders" pictures). Superimposed in the lower right corner of the image is a symbol denoting the role of the character (e.g. leader, general, scientist, etc.). Although the written data on the cards also indicate the role, it is a nice to have a graphical indication for quick identification on some of the other susmmary screens. While the default symbols fit the graphics style used for default race images, they do not fit the more realistic pictures of characters that I use in my personal mods. Therefore, I created these alternate symbols.

========================================================================
INSTALLATION/REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
========================================================================

Unfortunately, as of this date the "Theme" modding folders do not permit the overriding of user interfaces elements. Therefore, we are forced to overwrite the default files. I have included the default files in the zip (with the word "original." preceding the name) so that you can quickly restore the originals if desired.

To install, unzip these files to the following directory:

"[Distant Worlds install folder]\images\ui\chrome\..."

To uninstall, first delete the 7 files indicated below under MOD CONFLICT ANALYSIS" and then change the names of the original files by removing the word "original." from those same files listed in that directory.

+ added grey background to cloak and dagger symbol to make it more visible

v1.00 (02/28/2012) initial release version
+ replaced all 7 role symbols with new ones.

========================================================================
NOTES/COPYRIGHT ISSUES
========================================================================

(1) The images contained in this mod were taken from a variety of sources and were further modified using GIMP and other tools. This mod is distributed completely free of charge.

(2) As a common modding courtesy, I would ask that this mod not be re-posted or used as part of any other publicly distributed mod without first contacting me via a personal mail from this website.

(3) As all my mods are a continual work-in-progress, please forward all tweaks, suggestions and bugs found to me via personal mail.

Have Fun!

I get an Invalid or Deleted Object error from your host. =[




Nedrear -> RE: [REL] Character Symbol Mod (3/3/2012 11:27:19 AM)

If the link is dead and you want the decals now, copy the picture in the thread above, cut the decals out and post them in the needed format into the folder yourself.

Otherwise wait for a solution by Tampa.




Tampa_Gamer -> RE: [REL] Character Symbol Mod (3/3/2012 1:59:22 PM)

Sorry about that, I had started updating the link to a slightly tweaked version last night while I was playing around with the new update and nursing a bottle of Jack. Needles to say I shouldn't drink and mod...




Verstorbene -> RE: [REL] Character Symbol Mod (3/5/2012 4:12:05 AM)

Thanks for the fix, Tampa.




Fishers of Men -> RE: [REL] Character Symbol Mod (3/5/2012 3:02:54 PM)

I am using these new icons and think they are a good visual improvement.




Tampa_Gamer -> RE: [REL] Character Symbol Mod (5/28/2013 6:22:05 PM)

In the spirit of updating various mods for the new Shadows release, attached is an update to the character symbols from my personal mod. I will also try and post my character pack later this week. As soon as I get a chance, I will merge this into my first post above.

Here is a screen shot of the images (download link to .zip containing the files is at the bottom)

Tampa_Gamer Character Symbol Mod v1.02

May 28, 2013

========================================================================
INTRODUCTION

Distant Worlds (Shadows) adds the concept of RPG-like characters to the game.
These characters each have a "card" in the game which contains data regarding
the character as well as an image of the character (typically a "head and
shoulders" pictures). Superimposed in the lower right corner of the image
is a symbol denoting the role of the character (e.g. leader, general,
scientist, etc.). Although the written data on the cards also indicate the
role, it is a nice to have a graphical indication for quick identification
on some of the other summary/planet information screens. While the default
symbols fit the graphics style used for default race images, they do not fit
the more realistic pictures of characters that I use in my personal mods.
Therefore, I created these alternate symbols.

Thanks! I find these icons to have good contrast and enable you to quickly see what type of Character you have, especially on bigger screens.
