Mein Herr, sPzAbt653
Appreciate the information concerning icon graphics and TOAW IV. I can see the value of having one “master” unit icon sheet. Make change, one place, one time, covers all occurrences of the icon . . . good clean and efficient way to make a change. Applaud the team for their efforts.
I assume of course that designers can still make custom icons and have them applied to specific scenarios . . . right?
If I understand this right, if I were to make a LotR for TOAW IV I would need to use the “one” available icon template to describe all 30 unique LotR unit icons. I suppose this could be done, but it would require access to the individual icon “attributes” to edit abilities such as armor, sword lethality, cross bow range, trebuchet bombardment, Elf magic . . . all the things that make LotR different.
This can be done, but not by me. At least not in my near future. If anyone should want to take up the challenge, they have my blessing and support.
