Kudos IronX to a great looking & very well-made mod that’s gonna be awesome!

I’m fiddling with a ”NATOs & Silhouettes” 2D counter mod that’s nearing completion (I hope). At least on the zoomed in level.
I’ve tried to avoid multi-colored counters, i.e. with darker lower sections to make strength & upgrade indicators clearer.
But it looks really nice on your counters so I may have to reconsider. Again… [:)]

Looks really nice. Will it be also compatible with War in Europe?

^ It's mostly compatible. WaW uses the first six images - which is all I'm doing - on a row and if I recall correctly, WiE uses 12. So some minor work would be required to make it work.

When it's finally finished, the mod will also come with historical flags and my map graphics.

Thanks all for your comments!

I think it will be fully compatible for WIE (from v1.16)
I believe WAW and WIE both use the 12 images per rows (its mainly mannaging facing/orientation settings).
"usualy" the six first images are facing east and the last six are facing west (you can swap by using editor if necessary)

Excellent work and good idea to add the vehicles ID's (in such a small space I guess thats not so easy)

Is there a way to colour code which unit belongs to which HQ?

By the way IronX;
I have tons of airplane & ship silhouette files for all nations in .svg format.
If you’re interested, just PM me & I’d be happy to mail them across.

I think you're right, at least for WiE. I recall having to do this when I originally started working on the mod. It doesn't seem to make a difference in WaW: i.e., it appears to only use the first six.


@roy64: Unfortunately, no. I don't think it can be done.

Looks phenomenal! My personal preference would be to keep symbols for garrisons, SF and engineers - namely all the infantry type units.

Special thanks to PHalen, whose aircraft and ship images have helped speed up the process.

Looks amazing! Perfect harmony between map and counters I think.

Very, very well done. While the other sets are good too, this one shines in it's mild elegance.

I'm using Sipres counters now, and like them very much, but if your version is ready before I tire of the game, I must surely give them a shot too. I'll play slowly.

Modded border lines are just great. New counters are just awesome. Good work!
