Hello Hub, may I ask which software did you used to make unit graphics?

I’m not in front of my laptop right now, but I believe it’s called 3D Edit. It was part of the software package that came with the laptop. But, I really didn’t do much creative. Mostly I stole from sprites that were already in the game. For example, the CF-104 is just the Belgian Starfighter with Canadian roundels added by me - the camo pattern happened to match. The Nomad helicopter is actually an Alouette with rotor blades from something else - from above it looks close enough. The Cougar FSV is a MOWAG hull with a Scorpion turret stuck on top - which is pretty much what happened in reality. The Skyguard 35mm AAA is the ZU-23 chopped up a bit and scaled up with bits cut and pasted from a couple of other things. The CF-18 Hornet was a top down photo somebody took of the 1/72 scale plastic model they were building and had posted on the internet. I resized it and tidied it up a bit, added Canadian markings to it. The CH-135 I had to fiddle with, but it started as one of the single-engine Hueys already in the game that I stretched a tiny bit and faked twin engines onto the back from a three-view to make it what is more or less a UH-1N. The CH-136 Kiowa is just the AB205. The M548 is the hull from the M728 Chaparral ADS, the “pulpit” from the M7 Priest, and a canvas texture I found on the internet and resized to make the canvas top for the cargo area. The ADATS isn’t in there because I couldn’t figure out a simple way to make one - but they would more than likely have been used for defense at a divisional level, or for airfield defense, not tooling around behind a battalion of mechs and tanks, so I wasn’t too concerned about it. The hull would have come from the M113A2 or A3 - not sure how I would’ve dealt with the turret.

So, no artistic talent on my part, just borrowed a bunch of parts. Sort of like Dr Frankenstein, I guess.

Three view line drawings of aircraft that include a top view are good places to start if you can find the plane you are trying to do on the internet.

Unzip it to the Armored Brigade\data\database folder. When you start the game, select Change Settings, and on the next screen, on the left where it says Database: use the drop down menu and select Database_Comprehensive.

I had mentioned this in a previous post, but to reiterate and give proper credit - I did the Canada database, but the Australia and PLA are also included. This excellent work was done by KarlTaco, and also included is the expanded Ammo Info file by CCIP-subsim. Thanks to both of them for their great work.
