Darojax Soviet Unit Insignia Addon v1.9.1

v1.9.1: 2358 insignias of Soviet High Level and Air Commands, Combined Armies, Tank units, Cavalry units, Airborne Brigades and HQs, Naval Infantry Brigades and Battalions, Ski brigades and battalions, NKVD Troops, Railroad Engineer and Engineer-Sapper units. No Guards yet.

v1.9 Patch notes:
- Added 160 new insignia for Naval Infantry Brigades and Battalions. Brigades have a golden anchor, battalions silver. To my knowledge, the anchor insignia used is accurate.

v1.9.1 Patch notes:
- Quick patch changing the cyrillic text of Naval Infantry units from yellow to white since they do not receive any morale bonus.

New for v1.9.1


For all the insignias a golden/yellow symbol normally (but not always) indicate corps, silver/white division/brigade, blue regiment/battalion. Yellow text means the unit has a higher base morale than regular units, regular units have white text.

Some units have Order awards added to their insignia if they were awarded before the start-date of the Grand Campaign. If you notice major awards missing from some insignia, feel free to let me know.

The Soviet side can create new units, these units are not present in the editor most of the time. Because of this there may be some insignias missing due to oversight. PM if noticed.

INSTALLATION: Just unpack the archive and drop the contents inside into your main Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 install folder, overwrite if asked (the original 18 insignias are included in a backup folder named 'original').

Sample:

Unfortunately, at least some insignias of the post-war period:

- 208th mechanized Division, 60thTank Division, 11th Guards Tank Corps, 10th Airborne Brigade - all of them are from the 70s...

- Kiev Military District insignia is from post-Soviet period (after 1991).

EDIT after downloading the mod:
And all insignias in the shape of a "shield" (like 208th mechanized Division) appeared in the Soviet Army after 1969.

Yeah, the shield insignias seem to display a T-62 tank.

Sorry for the multiple posts.

The insignias show up too big. Not sure if this is a scaling issue (I am using the latest Beta with 125% scaling).


Edit: Changed size of screenshot.

Yeah, that's a beta scaling thing, pretty sure, in any case not a problem for the stable release. May wait for scaling to be stable released before making changes on that one. May just revert all insignias to the 100x100, which is afterall the original intend insignia size.

Great idea! impressive work! Please keep the 100x100 size (and put the 210x210 as an alternative).
Thank you very much

Alright, based on feedback I will resize the insignia to 100x100 size. Work is also underway to replace the historically inaccurate ones. It will take some time so I'll probably release the new insignias in stages; the regular Rifle and Tank units (corps, divisions, brigades, battalions etc) should be finished for release soon.

Sure. Rest assured work on this is progressing, but I want to make it right, and it takes a lot of time to do all these units.

I can share with you a small batch of 66 high level insignia that have been entirely completed, not much, better than nothing :) . Not entirely sure if all of them are historically accurate (some Military Districts), let me know if you are certain they are not, and I will modify. Size is now 100x100 pixels and should look correct everywhere ingame.

Showcase:

Just drop the folder in the ZIP-archive directly inside your main Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2 install folder, overwrite if asked. (If you want the original symbols back and you lost them, feel free to PM me and I will send them to you, I will include them in a later, larger update.)

All of Military District insignias without red star but with a double-headed eagle are still from post-soviet period.
These are such MD insignias as Arkhangelsk, Leningrad, Kharkov, Kronstadt, Notrh Caucasus

By the way right now I could not find in web the insignias of Military Districts from 40s. Perhaps they did not exist...

Really nice, thank you!

Some feedback on the Front insignias. If you remove the ornament above the banners, they can probably be enlarged (or at least moved upwards) to align better with the HQ counter. It think it would look better.

Yeah, that was how they were in the first version, I tried something new here. But you're probably right, alignment wise it looks better. I'll most likely change that back for the next patch.

Updated to v1.3
Addon now adds 269 Soviet Unit insignias.

Patchnotes:
- Added insignia for all Airborne Brigades, and their Corps HQs. The yellow text used denotes units with higher base morale. (I believe this is the historically correct badge used, as always feel free to contact me if you know this is not the case.)
- Reverted the Front insignias to earlier version, better aligned with the unit marker.

Samples:

Updated to v1.5
Adds 943 new Soviet unit insignia

v1.5 Patch notes:
- Added historically correct(?) Tank Troops badge insignias for all non-Guard regular Tank units; Corps, Divisions, Brigades, Regiments and Battalions. Golden means Corps, White means Division or Brigade, Blue means Regiment or Battalion.
- Changed location of Order of the Red Banner insignia to top right for 1st and 2nd Red Banner Armies.
- Included folder 'Original' which contains the handful of Tank unit insignias that comes with the original game, for backup purposes.

Some have the Order of the Red Banner award added to their insignia, if they were awarded before the start-date of the Grand Campaign. If you know of more units that fill this criteria, and the award (or other major awards) is missing from the insignia, feel free to contact me.

The Soviet side can create new units, these units are not present in the editor, most of the time. Because of this there may be some insignias missing due to oversight. Feel free to PM if you notice something missing.

Thanks for your work !

Is this compatible with COREd WitE2 and mapmod ? I guess all those mods are rather complementary.
