Philippeatbay -> John Tiller's Napoleonic Battles (10/16/2018 6:44:46 PM)
This is current list of links to my mods for John Tiller's Napoleonic Battles.
Although these mods work with both the JTS and HPS versions of the games,if
you only have HPS versions, you should get in touch with support at JTS
software and they will help you convert to the JTS version so you can get
the latest patches.
I don't have time to run a website, but a list of links to the current
updates will do essentially the same thing.
These are graphics-only mods, so your PBEM opponent doesn't need to be using
it for your game to work.
These mods work with the 'new' Napoleonic engine that Tiller has been using
since the beginning of this century (at both HPS and JTS). They do NOT work on the
old Talonsoft Napoleonic engine from the 90's, or any of its derivatives
(e.g. the Matrix version).
The basic difference between the old and the new engine is that with the new
engine you can play a huge campaign on one gigantic map. The 3D maps for
the old engine were hand-painted, so gigantic maps were out of the question.
The new engine accomplished the large size by using an algorithim and standardized hexes
whose graphic quality often suffered.
These mods were developed as an attempt to address that problem.

Make sure you back up your originals and read the README files. Some of
these mods contain two separate mods, so whatever you do, don't download
them directly into your game.
Some of the mods have two links, one to Box and one to Dropbox. Whenever
there is a choice, always use the Box link because the Dropbox links tend to
point to earlier versions of the mod.
