Yeah. And you like it, don't you? You're doing such a great job, I see no point in stopping when you are able to pull out 1st class graphics so well.PANGI wrote:Good work. Ok, ok...it's really hard to make you satisfied TiFlo
See? Your open coat looks so good. I've been trying to find whether the tie has to be black or white, and why, but have not had any luck there. It seems both were equally worn so white is fine.[/quote]You mean the open coat? Ive tryed to make it. (first love?) Do you insist on that black neckcloth? (i like the rococuesqe long white neck)
What do you think? (and of course the bonnet...)

TiFlo wrote:It is indeed hard to have to discard one or another. I'd suggest keeping #1 and #4. I'm not sure if you can distribute JSGME alongside your pack (wonderful tool BTW, I've used it for some time with Silent Hunter 3), but if it is so, and provided the instructions are clear enough, several packs can be made available to public, and players can install/uninstall them at will depending on what scenario they are playing (regulars wearing white gaiters and different French regiments, as well as your early 18th cent. units). What do you think?
TiFlo wrote:Now, onto my usual nitpicking, which will be my last for this beautiful guy. Would you be able to move the cartridge pouch up to the same level as the belly belt? Actually, I understand that we have the same model for #4, so I'll risk asking even more. Are you still here? Thank you. What about removing all trace of the white laces on his coat (#4), as well as the yellow regimental sleeves?

TiFlo wrote:On a side note, what program are you using? And do you have a digital pencil? I ask because I can't seem to manage to avoid pixelated effects whenever I work, because the support image is already so small. I use Gimp. And what about, for example, the hatchet or the water bottle. Did you import models and draw on them or draw them from scratch (there comes my first question again).
TiFlo wrote:There is only one model for grenadiers / light infantry in game. More can be added, but it is really time consuming, as it involves working with the excel database. But the option exists.
TiFlo wrote:Yeah, how lazy of you. Putting the cartridge pouch in place of the sporran... No, seriously, that was a good idea, but the sporran was abandoned during that era, and only used again toward the end of the 18th Century. But it does not hurt the eyes, the pouch can stay there if you don't want to do it all over again

Hey PANGI, I just noticed you updated your pack. Great, just in time to launch my 1759 campaign!

From the establishment of a permanent corps of Marine Regiments in 1755 to 1802, red coats with white facings were worn. The normal headdress was a tricorn (later bicorne hat and the overall appearance closely resembled that of the Army's Regiments of Foot.
[SIZE="1"]hardly. i must find a way which would be more easier. pssst...ive badly cut oneself on my right hand - no this is not a joke im only making myself interesting. but i think it wont stop me.[/size]
Now, it is possible that the transition between grenadier caps / regimental facings and tricorne / all-white facings didn't take place at once, and that by 1759 a few units still wore the old style uniform.The dress of the ten Regiments of Marines raised for service between 1739 and 1748 is well documented in the coloured illustrations of the official 1742 Clothing Book. All wore red coats and breeches with mitre style caps. Facings, buttons and lace varied according to the regiment.
