So, Legends now allows us to have leaders, admirals, ambassadors, scientists, generals, and spies and, best of all, we can have character graphics. By default the game uses the race default graphic, however, I've been wondering if we can't have customized graphics so I did some digging. In the characters file we can assign custom graphics to these leader and, maybe, new leaders can use the custom graphics.
The custom images go into the "\images\units\Characters" folder but the question is where is a good place to find good custom images for these leaders? Also, can the game distinguish between the "class" of the leader (ie. General, Admiral, Leader, ect)? I believe we could easily assign a whole cast of custom characters that would pop up but what about the randomly generated characters? Also, with custom graphics we could have male and female leaders (probably need to just rename them). I think there is HUGE modding potential here.
Anyone know of any good avatar generators that'd fit Distant Worlds's style? Or games with good character customization? Or is there a site with excellent character graphics? I think STO would be a good source for a variety of 3D humanoid characters (or Eve Online) or Star Wars Rebellion (old game) for more cartoony graphics.
