[LSP][Texture] Quapitty's Banner Pack
« on: July 14, 2013, 10:22:27 PM »
Hey, I made some banners and I felt like I would like to share them with this awesome community and maybe some people might be happy to use them. All the banners have historic archetypes. Most of them are from the 12th - 14th century. And most of them are German, French, Italian, British. Few are Almohad and Eastern European. Hope you like them. You are very welcome to use them, I appreciate if you give me credits as soon as you use them for your mod.
A lot of this was done working for and being inspired by the great mod Europe 1200. http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/board,132.0.html
Check it out! It's more than worth it.
Critics and praise are welcome.

There is a total of 168 banners (11.8 MB).

Download .dds files (zipped with 7zip) via MEGA (for best results use Google Chrome):

Congratulations, dude! good stuff here! But I am curious... how did you manage to make these banners? I mean, they look very well-made and there are so many... :)

Please, dude can you help me. I want to change banners in game. ( I use photoshop )
But I have one problem, I take empty banner



and make my own banner



Then I replace one banner in banners_a.dds, fill layers and save as DDS file.



But in game perfect lines of the cross which I'm using on my banner are distorted ( curved a bit ).
How can I fix that? Maybe it's somethings in photoshop. Anyway, thank you.

I have an idea! I think that what happened with your banner is that there is a normalmap applied to the banner, so you have to discard tangent directions in OpenBRF and it will be fixed, but I am not sure, because I have never changed a banner, and I don't even know if there is a mesh for the banners  :lol:

All right, already informed you but for anyone else with that question:

Simply exchange the existing banner.dds files in your mod's texture folder with the ones you downloaded (you'll need to rename the downloaded ones). Make a backup! These banners are designed for vertical use. So if aplied to horizontal ones, weird effects may appear. (therefore the backup)
Please note that you'll might have to adjust the heraldic background colours, if implemented in the mod you are running. (Search for tutorials in the forge, some coding needed)

You can adjust the textures via OpenBRF with >Selected >>Transform texture coords

I seem to be having issues viewing the textures in OpenBRF when I import them or try to add them to my banner mesh.

Open the files with DXTBmp (or your prefered programm) and resave as you wish.
If you need help with all the different dds settings, FantasyWarrior made some nice overview here:
http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,20178.msg6747982.html#msg6747982

But as soon as you overwrote the old .dds files you'll find the new textures in OpenBrf. You don't have to import them. If I get what's your problem.

I wish to add new banners to my mod, not overwrite the originals since I've encountered the "not enough banners for heroes" error, which is why I am trying to adjust them to my banner mesh, not sure what's going on since this is the first time OpenBRF has failed to load up imported textures, I'll try some tricks to see if I can get them to work.

I don't know exactly why that happens. But it must have to deal with the mesh itself I think. I had the same effect as you desribed it and solved it by simply taking the mesh from a banner where the lines are 'stable' in OpenBrf.
How to: Reimport the mesh for the bad looking banner from a good looking one and change the texture coordinates till it has the required texture. Remember to give it the same name as it had before!

Great. The kissing men are the coat of arms of the Duchy of Makelove Notwar.

(The family of Manesse from Zurich stole it though).
