Build Pics!

Post by PauloMorfeo »

There are 2 Building Pictures that need to be taken care of. At least in XTA, not sure about that special shiny mod that has new buildpics.

- Radar Jammer (curently doesn't shows any)
- Naval Flaker (this is rather silly. As it is now, it is showing the build pic of Core's mini-fusion)

If no nice build pics are aranged for them, consider this a request to remove the present build pic of the naval-flaker so it shows like the radar jammer tower, instead.

The immolator plasma cannon, or whatever it's called, uses the buildpic of a double barreled gun that looks like maby a flak cannon or a lazer or something. It should really get it's own buildpic, since the thing eats goliath for lunch.

Heh, it uses its original buildpic that uses its original model. The SYs gave it a new model for XTA.

But yeah, those units do need new buildpics, the ones they have completely suck.

Here you go: http://jonmicheelsen.tripod.com/id1.html

Download the fixedbuildpics.zip and replace them with the ones in the xta_se_v062.sdz

This is wierd... I save in PsP8, 96x96 pixels, 256colours, using the exact same palette as the other buildpics uses, but out comes a ca. 13.5Kb file instead of the ca. 9Kb files the other buildpics range around!
If I take one of the other buildpics and save them they jump from the ca. 9Kb to the ca. 13.5Kb... :evil:

If someone can make them save right please do so!!

It appears that Microsoft Photo Editor can resave them back to ca 9Kb... I'll reupload a fixedbuildpics_v2.zip on my site...

Unf, I hope you kept .bmp copies... It'd be much better than using the crappy TA palette.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in the XTA files there already is a buildpic for the radarjammer. It's just not initialized properly.
