The current version of the Blue Max mod is: 1.2.1

Please note that the mod has been reorganized so that users can activate individual parts of the mod to suit their preferences.

Main features of the mod include:

- Original main and splash screen art - default and two alternatives
- Two choices of original counter art - NATO and hybrid that change with research
- Map enhancements, including new borders, fronts, fort and city icons
- Numerous new WWI-era sounds

Latest update:

- UI panel and icon compatibility fix for game v.1.02.

Next update will include:

- tbc

Instructions:

1. Delete previous versions of Blue Max mod(s)

2. Download the mod HERE.

3. Unzip ALL contents of the zip file to:

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\Strategic Command WWI\Mods

NB: If there isn't one there, you need to run the game at least once or create it manually.

4. Activate the mods you want to use in Settings (Recommended: all)

Damn, those are nice, might just have to buy the game. Good work, sir.

Just one moment. I don't think that icons for urban centers are good. It's hard to distinct them. The same for fortified cities. Plz, may be add numbers as for forts. It will be more obvious. And of course thank you for your work.

Thank you all. I kind of went "over the top" with this one! Hopefully it'll enhance your Great War experience.

As soon as I saw the upcoming generic screenies for SC3 WW1, I thought, "I hope IronX is interested."

SC3 series has more depth, detail and overall polish than ever. Because of modders like you, they can get away with passable graphics. But the mods add so much to the game.

Thank you and others for continuing to support SC3+

Excellent graphics work.

I would just like to add that I was interested in this game but it was way down on my buying priorities. But with this splendid graphics mod, which surpasses your SC3 WAW and WIE work, I will be purchasing.

I already own the two previous SC3 titles, and will buy this one too. But can't wait to get this one thanks to this splendid and top quality mod.
Congrats Ironx, the style on unit imaged counters is simply awesome and very professional. Any plans to get a similar update on your mods for SC WW2 WIE and SC WAW in a future?

Thanks, guys.

No immediate plans to update the previous mods, but I won't rule it out.

This mod looks spectacular and probably, it was the one in the Twitch stream right? Might have to get the game after all...

I really like the unit counters as they have that Worthington boardgame feel......

Hmmm I was under the impression this would ship with the game already installed like the Community Pack for WAW. No worries. Installing now

I love this counter set! Though I bought the game on Steam and do not see a MOD folder? How do I add this MOD to my game?

1) If you navigate to the following folder, you should see a 'Mods' subfolder after you launch the game. If it isn't there you'll just need to run the game at least once or create it manually.

C:\Users\<uesrname>\Documents\My Games\Strategic Command WWI

2) After that you just need to download, extract and place the mod files in this folder.

3) Then launch the game, go to SETTINGS from within the MAIN MENU screen, click on MODS, and then turn on the desired mod by ticking off the box to the right of the listed mod.

Hope this helps!
Hubert

Love your mods. Is there a way to keep playing with the game unit sprites while using the rest of your mod? Just not a nato symbol fan. I can do this in WIE and WAW. Thanks!

...the vanilla graphics is not bad at all, that must be said.
However let me again express my gratitude, this graphics mod really is one of the best ever!

Thank you.
