How to make a custom overlay.

Recommended Posts

I've tested out if i could add another symbol for the civilization creator flags and... i was shocked!

It worked!!!

So... you need to get an custom image. Then make it so its 44 pixels wide and 44 pixel high [ Can be highier or lower but change the scale of it in overlays.json file so its not too big or too small ] and save it as png and call it the next number from overlays so its lile - "overXXX"

X are numbers

The amount of overlays in AOH II is 116, so 117 will work but if you wanna add more than 117 then you need to call them a number bigger than 117.


When you are done creating overXXX / over117 then go to the local files of AOC II and go to game --> flags_editor.


You will need to put the overlay to the overlays folder.


Well... the game uses code to define whenever there is or there's not an overlay so you will need to edit overlays.json


go to the bottom of the .json and make sure it is in exact order as the other ones 





Do not use space! Tab is the one for the coding spacing!

When done properly, you are done! Just test it if it works and make sure you viewed all of the overlays.




O and colorization works aswell! needs to have white symbols and not colored one cuz it may break?
