These flags are execllent! Thank you very much!

Now does anyone know what numbers correspond to what colors?

Worked on this for my mod. It's been a while, but if my notes are correct then pretty sure the scheme is as follows:

0 - dark blue
1 - med blue
2 - light blue
3 - very light blue
4 - dark green
5 - med green
6 - light green
7 - greenish yellow
8 - yellow
9 - orange
10 - salmon
11 - maroon
12 - dark brown
13 - light brown
14 - tan
15 - purple
16 - royal purple
17 - violet
18 - pink
19 - flesh
20 - white

That should be it. Also, I made up the color names. You have been warned.

Baleur, you can create a theme directory in the Customization folder and add
your wanted flags in a subdirectory named 'flagshapes'. Then just change to
that theme from the main menu. You will have to start a new game though.
You can also add a flagshapes subdirectory to any other Theme's directory
as well.

If you don't want to use a theme, backup your original main directory 'images\ui\flagshapes
subdirectory, then place your wanted flags there. They will overwrite any flags of the
same number of course, thus the reason for the backup in case you wish to return to the
originals.


I would not recommend using a theme for flag. The game would load all the new flags but the ingame editor still load and use the original flag set. So if you enter the editor, edit your race, your flag will automatically revert to the original flag. It happen even if you only add some money or change relations. Then, you can't revert back to the custom flag via the editor because it don't load custom flag.

So don't use custom flag in theme, because strange things seem to happen.

@the1sean, that corresponds with exactly what I have. Well, I've got bright red instead of salmon and dark red instead of maroon.

Hi Matys. It's working fine for me. I've tried adding money to other races and my own race as well as change tech levels and no unusual effects.

Are you running the 1701 beta patch?

I think you should post this on the tech support forum.

I feel stupid right now . It work if I restart the game after changing the theme. So, yeah, use the flag as theme. It is easier: no need to backup, easy to make change. If only I knew it when I was testing the flag...

Don't feel bad Matys, we forgive you! It's called DistantWorlditis, and it's infectious!

I'd like to be able to do that, but in all honesty, I'd much rather work with simple jpegs or pngs.

You just need to invert the color of the flag and chose white as the secondary color. But your empire color(on the map) will still be the primary color, not white.

It will be great to have jpegs or pngs flag.

Do it yourself, change the extension, it's the easiest thing you can do.

Sorry for the dinosaur era necro, but it looses its transparency when i change the extension.
The flag Symbol at center is stuck at black color. I didn't realize this was a necro, this page comes up at top when i search "Distant Worlds Flags"
