Looks great!

Thank you for your hard work.

Hi overkill01.

I think version 0.5 looks fantastic - I really like the structure you gave the hexes, they look like rolling hills and sand dunes doe the desert hexes. The escarpment hexes look especially good with the 3D effect you created.

Again, thanks a lot for your work. I have now a fully modded "Dat" folder for WitW with your mod and some other great mods that change the unit flags/logos and the leaders and new UI and can easily copy that over each new installation of WitW and instantly have a great looking game!




IslandInland -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (6/5/2018 4:56:26 PM)

Thanks for the new map. I tried it last night on my laptop and I liked it so much I decided to use it on my main PC.

Great work! [:)]





overkill01 -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (6/5/2018 6:02:47 PM)

I'm glad you like it.

It's been a while since i've updated the mod though.
For the moment I'm working on an other project, but in time I expect to revisit this mod.




GrizzlyKt -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (6/8/2018 1:54:08 PM)

wicked thank you for your great work




overkill01 -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (6/14/2018 6:57:02 PM)

As a reminder, if you install the latest update you should reinstall the mod. Actualy you only need to paste in the wfhexart.dat file again. Or else the game won't load all the art from the mod.
As far as I can tell the update doesn't change anything in this file so it wont backtrack anything from the update.




Brambo -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.5) (9/21/2018 5:56:57 PM)

Thanks for the map its really good.




kosmoface -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.5) (12/1/2018 12:31:44 AM)

Oh my god. I never thought I would see this - looks incredible. All these details! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Help. Why does this file download as an Adobe Acrobat file and not as a zip file? It happens both as a direct download and as a Dropbox download.

It looks like a .dat file to me I have just downloaded it.

It should download a RAR file to extract.




Uxbridge -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (1/1/2019 9:45:04 PM)

Just downloaded the map and it looks really great. Thank you for this work.




Gilmer -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (2/25/2020 11:37:43 PM)

I'm doing a let's play of War in the West using your mapmod, I give you full credit :)

The map is beautiful. Can you please confirm there haven't been any long-term bugs or problems?

Glad you like it.
The mod does not change any coding, it only changes the artfiles.
So there are no known bugs or problems, and if there are any, then they would only be graphicly




krishub1492 -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.5) (3/31/2021 3:34:16 PM)

I installed version 0.5 of your mod and it looks great in the 43-45 campaign. However, when I open the 4th Supreme Command scenario, the game defaults to the original tile set. Why would this occur?




overkill01 -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.5) (3/31/2021 5:17:54 PM)

that is strange,

I tested it just now and the art from the mod only loads partially in the 4thsup cmd scen.

In all other scenarios, the mod loads just fine.

I have no idea why this is the case.




RedLancer -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.5) (4/17/2021 8:17:20 PM)

It's probably because 4SC uses embedded data although I never realised it impacted on the artwork.




rocketman71 -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (6/30/2021 7:46:28 PM)

I tried this mod with a new game and there seem to be stuff missing or I'm being a dunce. Even if I toggle hexes on/off, I can only see enemy hexes. No hexes on water either. There are no icons for ports. Rail is missing altogether.
I moved the old files/folder and pasted in the mod ones. No luck :(
This is on the Steam version.

I'm not sure what went wrong but I suspect that in moving the old files/folder you have cut and deleted everything, and then extracted the mod.
The MOD only contains the files that have been changed.
So if that is the case, you should move the old files back in (keep a backup) and paste and overwrite the mod again.




rocketman71 -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (7/1/2021 5:12:10 PM)

Thanks, that solved the issue. For some reason I assumed that all tiles in the Tiles-folder was modded. What program do you use to mod TGA-files? The version of Photoshop Elements I have can't. I'm thinking about making a slightly desaturated version of your mod, with your permission of course.

This mod has been made with GIMP, it's a popular and free software.
But I've been using "Corel PaintshopPro" since a few years now.

If youre looking for photo-editing software, but only to desaturate the mod, then use GIMP.




cfulbright -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (7/5/2021 5:35:41 PM)

I installed your map mod months ago and it looks so much better than what comes "in the box". But my map still doesn't have quite the degree of detail and nuance that your maps on the first page of this thread show (see screenshots). Do you think it's a resolution thing (I'm running at 1366 x 768 on a laptop) or something else? Any suggestions?

I think it's because you did not start a new game.
Changes I made to the file hexart.dat only apply when starting a new game, no way around it.





cfulbright -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (7/5/2021 6:16:12 PM)

This IS a new game.

Cary

You started a new game after installing the mod, or before ?
did you try in 43-45 campaign ?




cfulbright -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (7/5/2021 7:21:11 PM)

Yes, I started this game after installed the map mod many months ago.

To test, I just started a new game of the 1943-45 scenario. Here's a screenshot.

I hope I don't come across as ungrateful. Like I said, it looks a lot better than the standard game.

overkill01 -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (7/6/2021 3:14:30 PM)

It seems like wfhexart.dat does not load.

Check if you installed the mod correctly, in the installfolder go to the folder "dat", then look for "wfhexart.dat", its date should be 19/11/2017 .




cfulbright -> RE: WitW Mapoverhaul mod (updated 0.4) (7/6/2021 3:27:14 PM)

Hi,

Thanks for trying to help me out.

The date changes because it gets today's date when it downloads. But I did just download the single file in the RAR folder - wfhexart.dat - to my DAT folder, started a new game, and it still doesn't look as good as yours. The downloaded file is 305K.

Is that the only file in your mod? That's all I see in the RAR file.

Cary
