Why is Athena the game icon?

Tue Jan 30, 2018 12:41 am

Why is the desktop icon of Wars of Succession a statue of Athena? I thought it might be a particularly significant statue in some relevant place, but I found that it is the one made by Leonidas Drosis outside of the modern Academy of Athens.

Is this a placeholder, or am I again missing something historically obvious? :confused:

Athena is the default icon for AGE engine (Athena being the name of the AI). WSS just doesn't have a special icon like most AGEOD games, so it uses the default :)

Oh, that explains it. Thank you for the reply. I've never seen the default icon before.

Here is a suitable icon if you want to use it. Looks like it was damaged or failed to make it during the build process.

The icon (a crown) is in the executable.

If you go to the game folder, you may create a shortcut of it and paste to your desktop.

Phillipe posted an alternative with the head of Eugen of Savoy in Matrix forum.

Probably I will post another too :pouet:

The link to the Matrix forum with the Eugene icon:

Many of the personalities in the game lend themselves to becoming desktop icons.

There are at least half a dozen colorful possibilities.

I settled on Eugene because I had to draw the line somewhere and I'm partial to exorbitant wigs.
