Hey space dictators!
Maybe i'm the only one who's noticed this.. but I though having the same boring square tank as a troop icon for all the different races is abit too.. well boring, so I decided to try and mix it up a little, by giving each race their own troop icon.
Now I realize these "troops" are made so tiny in game that you can't actually make out much detail, but they made changing them really easy - and I enjoy messing about in photoshop.
So, with this mod you will be able to see unique troop icons for all the different races. If you don't like some of them, feel free to change them to something more appropriate. They can be any size or form. Hopefully this will add more personality to the different races. Details like these really add to game atmosphere, in my opinion.
Mostly i've used the existing racial art provided with the game and simply modified them in small ways.
This way they won't look exactly like the race icons we see on the on the planet info screen.
For a few races i've tried to find appropriate pictures besides the basic portraits.
So if the troop description says "mech" I've put the picture of a mech as the troop.
I'm hoping some future update will add the possibility to view the larger version of the troop in-game, maybe by adding it to the troop menu somehow?
Click on troop at the planet screen ---> get directed to a larger pic. This might encourage talented people to make proper troop images
I'll post some examples below.
Download here, now updated with more troops. See below.
I had to remove the alternate troops from this main attachment, cause it was growing over 5mb. You can download them in another file, on page 2 of this thread.
