Improved Faction Colors v. 5



Download (FE Nexus)

 

This mod improves the distinctness of the 'vanilla' faction colors for Fallen Enchantress.  Tarth, Resoln, Umber, Capitar, and Wildlands ZoC colors have been changed for better UI visibility.

***Changelog and Upcoming Changes***

v. 5 Changes:
+ Added new faction colors for Capitar and Umber.  Capitar is more lavender and Umber is more brownish orange.

v. 1 changes:
+ Changed Resoln faction color to a more intense blue to help differentiate from Pariden's faction color

v. 2 changes:
+ Removed the blue hue from the Tarth faction color
+ Darkened and added more blue to the Wildlands Player color

v. 3 Changes:
+ Made the mod modular by splitting up each faction color and crest into it's own XML file
+ Included alternate faction crest for Tarth and Resoln to more accurately reflect IFC colors

v.4 Changes:

Now compatible with ev4debug's Mod Manager

 

***Download, Installation, and Management***

 Simply download the .zip file via the supplied link.  Unzip the file directly into your mydocuments/mygames/fallenenchantress/mods folder. 

Turn Mods on in game options.

When updating versions it's highly recommended that you delete all previous versions of the mod before installing the newest version.

This mod is now modular, meaning you can leave out the components you don't want. 

To remove a mod component, open up the mods folder (path above) then open the IFC folder.  There should be several .xml files located in here which are associated with the different elements of the mod.  Just delete what you don't want.

If you have questions about this, feel free to ask in this thread.

 Enjoy!

 

Fellow modders: please feel free to include this work in your mods.

Quoting mqpiffle,
If it doesn't work, then it doesn't work. If he wants to copy and paste these numbers into his code to include in his mod, then that's just fine with me.

I'm not going to worry about inter-mod compatibility in this case. I feel like I made this is as modular as it can possibly be.

Sorry, wasn't trying to cause a ruckus, just prodding I have been too "tired" today to play anything or do these mod things, so haven't been looking, I will shaddap

Sorry - wasn't trying to be snarky.   I have a long history of that...god or bad

I appreciate your asking, and I understand why.

Anyway I hope this mod can play nice with other mods.

Looking forward to it. Can I please steal some of the colours for Stormworld factions? With more factions it is more difficult to make them unique.

well, this whole "wait for mods to get approved" thing really sucks. modders should just stop using it altogether and upload. really anything is better than that wincustomize site.

crimsongekko, I also hit the blasted wait for approval issues back in  the early entrenchment days and formed the same opinion and have NOT updated anything I originally posted to wincustomise due to the significant delays that the authourising has.

but dropbox has an issue( if too many downloads in a day (ie 20gb) and the account is frozen for three days repeat and longer freezes), as does other free hosting sites.

if you find a free host that does NOT have any significant issues please let us all know

My guess is they test it for virus and stuff like that, so I wont mind it too much.

Patience is a sin, and rushing stuff is a virtue... waaait a minute...

Ps Mqpiffle, I am officially a fan of what you are doing here!

Oh, sorry!  I'll look into it.

edit: Everything seems to be good to me.  Folks have been downloading normally, not sure why it's hidden for you.

upon re-testing your links in both the OP, reply 43 and 45, I am STILL getting the hidden file message, BUT when I manually explore nexus, I can find AND download it, so it looks like a link error on both OP, reply 43 & 45.

I suspect you would have a more downloads if you did not have the link to a hidden file issue from here.

harpo

and for those that are still looking for the file here isa link directly from nexus

hope this helps
