DISCLAIMER: Yes, those icons are heavily inspired by Wizard's Contour icons.

In short, i was looking for similar but darker Wizard's like icons, but wasn't able to find any alternatives,
so decided to create my own icons from scratch.

After using icons for few weeks i got bored of low quality on nation icons or even corruption on corner stripes on some icons, at the same time too lazy to fix it or don't know how.
They appear just fine in maker, but when i save/convert them with CCAtlas in dds (4096x4096) and put them in game they look like s***. :triumph:

Here is icon maker profile if anyone can scavenge anything useful from it...I'm done. :sleeping:

You got to be kidding me, that simple fix? :dissapointed:
I read all about 1.0.0 issues with maker and saving with CCAltas in .dds (to avoid low quality on atlases), but nowhere about that trick.

Well, guess i have to download maker again and get nation icons back, if i can remember where i borrowed them from. :confused:

TIM is creating both .dds and .png, I'm always manualy deleting .dds, and renaming .png to .dds, and it works :)

I know, used .dds from TIM at first, it was less chopped, but blurry (of course .png looked better).
Then i read on forum suggestion to use CCAtlas to fix .dds atlases.So i started saving battleAtlas & vehicleAtlas with CCAtlas.
In TIM save separate icons then extract Atlases from game in CCAtlas, move/replace extracted icons with TIM icons and then compile again in CCAtlas as .dds at 4k.
Turns out hell of a flipping back and forth, for nothing.Less blurry, still corrupted/chopped as hell.


Anyway thanks for help, gonna try it when i cool off a little.  ;):thumbsup:

You didn't attach all files, I'm toying with your icons in TIM and wanted to re-done them but image files are missing.

Oh right nation icons, found them.
I borrowed them from DEbranded's carousel/techtree icons pack.

On this image everything looks corrupted (those are my pro paint skills),
in game looks fine (cracking usa icon is normal).

Nice, I have source for Wizard icons btw, he passed all to me since he stopped to make mods, and wanted me to continue, so I can make it the same like he has. In your config I touched size, font face and slightly moved down that tier numbers. Font is less crispy now due to antialiasing.

I did used wizard's icons, yaya's edit more (cuz of darker outline and auto loader indicator).
But i got tired of flashy class color rainbows.
So that's why i flipped colors. (class <-> background)

Still those look great in my opinion. Don't think much can be done about them on current config,
aside from USA emblem.(my idea to fix was create separate nation style for each nation, so its possible to fine tune each nation)
