From: The bright side of life
I never liked the old original Icon set that came with the game as it uses the same icons for the different industries.
Eventually I found some revised icon-set that had been posted by Nicholas Bell in the Matrix Games Forum.
This set actually has been developed for the original games "12'o Clock High" and "Bombing the Reich".
The original author seems to be unknown, but kudos to you who did it.
I futher optimized them now and added the third in game zoom level as well.
I normally only play the game at Level 0 and 1, but at times level 2 becomes handy.
With the original game icons, at that zoom level you already get some kind of real pictures for the targets.
To me that was always more confusing than helpful.
So I decided to use the modifed set that was originally created for Zoom Levels 0 and 1 now also for Zoom level 2.
The Icons keep the same size, so that you now get a much better overview about what is going on.
On top of that, I also indicated the CRITICAL industries with a marker, so that you now can easily spot them on the map.
Open the Explorer and find your Programm-Directory "Gary Grigsby's Eagle Day to the Bombing of the Reich\DAT\ART"
BackUp the existing 3 files build0.bmp, build1.bmp, build2.bmp
Copy the 3 files provide in the downloaded Zip-Archive into this directory, overwriting the existing files.
Launch the game.
You should now see at zoom levels 0, 1 and 2 the map using the new Icon-Set.
I did not bother to modify Zoom-Levels 3 and 4 as I do not play at this level.
However it certainly could be done with some effort.
If you find any typos or have suggestions for enhancements, just drop me a PM at the matrix forums.
Please see the picture below. The zip-file is in the next post.
