After using icons for few weeks i got bored of low quality on nation icons and 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:

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:

Link to comment

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:

Ohh look! No more corruption, must be magic.
Jokes aside i must agree font looks better now, cleaner. :thumbsup:

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.

Link to comment

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).

Hmm... it should work and show errors for non-drum tanks (but thats normal).

hmm.thumb.png.c642e8dbd5df570efba694be4b85273d.png



Gonna quickly recheck profiles and .csv maybe i messed something up with upload.


EDIT: Everything looks fine, idk why it doesn't load images in your case.
Stupid question: Did you forgot to copy new images?
I used default background-slesh-3.png flipped it for mirrored profile and named it Drum.png and Drum2.png

Also with .csv you should have new property now,

Spoiler

hasdrum.png.1a8084b060c4a0709084d4d0f4ce0a35.png


with text it should show "Drum" (didn't test text part, since i needed it for image import)
in default Exported-WotData-HasDrum-Wargaming-0.csv is "*" and you can't name image *.png
So i used Drum.png and Drum2.png images where {HasDrum}=Drum instead of *

Link to comment

I mean its pretty much straight forward, use custom .csv so you can import image, use image named as defined inside .csv
Unless if you already have another custom .csv for autoloader/HasDrum? ...maybe try removing my .csv
Also i still use TIM b159 and not latest b160 (with wheeled property)

Link to comment

Out of curiosity i just downloader b160 link and my images&data, and it loads up everything.
(ofc profiles are still stored on my pc from b159 so i didn't have to import those)
I even try sub foldering for "Images/Ress" like you have, also works.

idk i created .csv based on this post link

In the end issue must be something super simple and we just cant see it. :lol::lol:
