Graphic enhancements

Wed Jan 31, 2018 11:27 pm

The graphics in Wars of Succession do a nice job of making a visual representation of a world that looked very different from what we're used to seeing.

But from time to time the game relies on modern visual conventions that would have seemed odd to someone from the period.

Something like this happens in the lower left-hand corner of the game map, and I've made a small mod using period art that will give the game a little bit more turn-of-the-century flavor.


Before modding:

After modding:

The crown image itself is not modern, but the mod's use of framing architectural figures is more in keeping with artistic coventions of the time (especially Italian ones).



The mod can be downloaded from this link:

Because getting different images to appear in those two boxes is surprisingly involved, the mod has been designed for semi-manual installation.

Download the mod to a safe place and unzip it. You'll see a folder called Matrix Games, and the mod is deep inside of that. Copy the mod's Matrix Games folder and paste it to wherever you have your main Matrix Games folder installed. The mod's folders mimic the structure of the Matrix Games, so everything should fall into the right place.
