Building British cavalry

Sun Nov 07, 2010 10:10 am

When you get the ability to build new British cavalry units, one of those that can be built is more Dragoon Guards. The unit shown though is of "The Blues", there was only one unit like this in the British army and they arrive with the first British contingent.
Change the unit graphic from the Blues figure to the other Dragoon guard figure, the one with the red coat. ;)

Unfortunately, it isn't that easy. Graphic files aren't attached to particular units (like the Dragon Guards), but rather to a type of unit via model files. The model files determine how an element looks, a whole unit takes the visuals of the prevailing element type within it.

The blue cuirassier graphics are attached to the Gardes du Corps cavalry model, the red ones to the "ordinary" cuirassier model. If one were to correct the Dragon Guards to the red graphic set, the real "Blues" would appear red, too.

In order to implement historic looks for all the units off, one would have to create individual model files for each unit, as well as new unit files, implement those into all the scenarios and event files, ... I think you get the hang of it.

What I meant was to have the other heavy cavalry type buildable, so instead of the Blues, Gardes du Corps cavalry model, you had the other type, "ordinary" cuirassier model. :)

Got it. Sorry, I misunderstood you. Still it would require several changes: two model files ("81GBR Dragoon Guard" and "84GBR Regiment of Horses") and one event file ("ROP Options Reinforcements") to be exact. You could do that yourself. It's not that hard once you get the hang of it.
Or you can try to convince AGEOD to make these changes in their database.
