(TUTORIAL) How to Create a Flag for Your Nation With Photoshop

Recommended Posts

Hi, How are you? I'm going to teach you how to create a flag for your created nation

(REQUIREMENTS) Any Photoshop Version, I recommend CS6 or later versions,

First of all we create our nation in The game editor.

In Editor - Create A Civilization - Create New Civilization

1196893562_javaw2019-02-2200-54-13-752.thumb.jpg.9d75f2d03e2d83c565ec37cac216b2d9.jpg261764123_javaw2019-02-2200-54-17-133.thumb.jpg.fc51fca320b2e2d25b771415676fb69d.jpg2038692461_javaw2019-02-2200-54-21-345.thumb.jpg.80749d37458bbbc7266614b6a8d9e419.jpg

OK, Now

We Create Our Civilization

The main thing is the name

 1025274373_bandicam2019-02-2201-00-11-649.jpg.6c9c745cbb06353bd1eab626311cf22f.jpg

In Where It Says NAME We Write The Name Of Our Nation In My Case Potato With Cheese

481004862_bandicam2019-02-2201-02-21-012.jpg.4121a9bf6f3e95a2dfb4e41f18b19182.jpg

The Next Is The Color We Precised The Button That Tells Civilization Color, We Select The Main Color Of The Nation In My Case I Will Select The Orange Because My Nation Is A Potato xD

1663675434_bandicam2019-02-2201-05-08-308.jpg.4119949e7af6e69a90f6916810127fc3.jpg

Now we select the service list option, the list of service are as achievements by conquered provinces, we have a few models, we select the model, and we choose the color, in my case orange and white

731510206_bandicam2019-02-2201-08-46-435.jpg.25b27642f30c9e4dafdbd8567433604b.jpg

Ok The Flag No Ay That to Edit it Equals the Color that Has,

And we keep the Nation

Now we can close the game,

Generally, the folder is on this route C:\Program Files (x86)\ Steam\steamapps\common\ Age Of Civillizations 2

At least Asi I enter the game folder, At least that's how I enter the game folder.

 

Ok Inside the folder called Age Of Civilizations 2, we enter the folder GAME

763689283_bandicam2019-02-2201-21-14-074.jpg.f15ea8a98375f49aee0e7f97fdc421ed.jpg

Once inside we look for the folder called civilizations_editor and enter it

1239610136_bandicam2019-02-2201-38-33-463.jpg.4c286b70fcf65e3c7dbe319c0e82348f.jpg

A Data, Our newest Civilization Created Always Will be the last folder

We enter the folder and look for the last folder

514233479_bandicam2019-02-2201-40-54-944.jpg.fced32e0bd7b165cb6f6f87809929bc5.jpg

We enter the last Folder and you will find 2 PNG Photos,

1801636184_bandicam2019-02-2201-42-13-437.jpg.78e7aca9022c44bf55b9ee6b27df0958.jpg

To verify that our nation is created Let's double click on one of the 2 photos

The flag must be the same as the default

25278263_bandicam2019-02-2201-45-26-701.thumb.jpg.b49d5efe3808ba0c04e1c815b193d272.jpg

If It Is The Same Flag We Select THE 2 PHOTOS AND We Send It To The Desk

1137986641_bandicam2019-02-2201-48-54-690.thumb.jpg.1b8bcac59675b6a288c8958d4417a0c2.jpg

Now Open Photoshop

If they are good in Fotoshop they are edited alone, but as I am Manco Download a picture of a potato in Google for My Potato-Nation

The Measures Must Be IN PIXELS IS IMPORTANT

There are 2 Flags For That There Are Two Measures The Big One, 68 Wide, And 44 High, IN PIXELS

530220482_bandicam2019-02-2201-54-38-862.jpg.bbccf6741809cf3542394b56ff36b573.jpg

Then In Photoshop We Give It In, File - New, The Background Content Has To Be White, And We Added The Pixels, 68 Wide And 44 High, Here The Sample

146287952_bandicam2019-02-2201-58-57-099.jpg.5cffc1dda7fb81ea74462719b43e48df.jpg

Now We Select, File - Place

1262791749_bandicam2019-02-2202-02-27-146.thumb.jpg.3e290f0f3c0f01aa820493d91ca8519a.jpg

And We Search The Photo Or Edit Above The White,

When we place the image, we have to adjust it well

1430309644_bandicam2019-02-2202-04-17-867.jpg.8caae6570b9a4b71a08b19dd9a8a5093.jpg

Once Placed We Precede The Enter Key,

It Will Be Blurred But In The Game It Will Be In 4K I Will Promise You 😉

Now Open the Option, File - Save, VERY IMPORTANT SAVE AS A PNG PHOTO IF NOT, WILL NOT DETECT THE PHOTO

1605325264_bandicam2019-02-2202-09-33-770.jpg.9c8ad728b0c4ffc4cac03b0115fb2f28.jpg

We already have the first flag, if you put a photo, it is the same procedure to edit the small flag, (RECOGNIZE THAT YOU HAVE DIFFERENT PIXELS) If you edited the big flag well, When we created the workspace for the small flag we will place the big flag

Measurements of the Small Flag, 27 Wide, 18 High, IN PIXELS

708933223_bandicam2019-02-2202-16-11-983.jpg.9af510ccaf822dda34e5eae3d6333bfc.jpg

And place the photo, or if the great flag is edited, we place the big flag.

In my case I will reposition the photo of the potato to have more quality

2134382269_bandicam2019-02-2202-20-23-410.jpg.1d22c33652b685d3117b2a8325cfbf62.jpg

The small flag is more pixelated than the big one

And we keep the flag as a type of PNG photo

1206868648_bandicam2019-02-2202-22-59-346.jpg.7db21199c52203b3f5472f752432b1c8.jpg

I finish the difficult part

It should be like that

1788473911_bandicam2019-02-2202-24-14-367.jpg.e5630329f945bef92ed91c0d9a076e0e.jpg

We Copy The Name of the Original File

83381158_bandicam2019-02-2202-25-46-278.jpg.e73b7d720acdaae67221087b065e97f5.jpg

Now If we want Eliminate the Ancient Flag

Beware The Name Of The Big Original Banner It has to be stuck on the big flag created by us

And we paste in our new flag

162923864_bandicam2019-02-2202-25-55-193.jpg.70792fa173c2da27849ac7547cfb6bc2.jpg

We do the same procedure with the small flag.

Now we move our new flags to the folder that we opened before

386459112_bandicam2019-02-2202-31-23-315.thumb.jpg.033582890a758ae36463818a51ffe167.jpg

And we replaced

1199961230_bandicam2019-02-2202-31-30-105.thumb.jpg.0514b5a1cf0ecd43946356b0056c7b6c.jpg

We Close Everything, And Enter Age Of Civilizations

And now we can add our new nation to our scenario or to some scenario of the game

      Well,I'm a fan of The Man in the High Castle and I wanted to make a map of this serie,so I looked some maps that apppears in the serie and I did the map.
      When I was doing the map,I decided that all the neutral zones should be conquerables except the Rocky Mountain States in North America,basically because we don't have information about the other neutral zones (This is only my opinion)
      I though in some years for make the map (1947,when the war ends,or 1962,when the serie starts,but it's basically the same map),but like leaders change depending on ages,I had to make the map in 1946 (But in reality,it's like in the serie)
      About tecnology:All the civilizations have the standard tecnology level,0.45.
      I'm from android and I can't give a download link until Workshop arrives,but I can show you some pictures:
      (Sorry for the flags of Nazi America and Japanese Pacific States,at least I tried xD)

      I want to say that I disagree with the maps that appears in the series,because they aren't detailed and they look very simple.Some examples of that are zones like Italy,Spain,Portugal,Eastern Europe,Switzerland,Ireland,Sweden,Turkey,ALL Africa,Irak and Iran are under nazi control,and the same with South America,because in the serie only the United States seems to be important.
      Finally,the maps that were my base:

      Update 24/03/2019:
      -Borders in South America updated.
      -Central America is now a nazi territorie.
      -Borders in India updated,the Japanese Empire win territories there.
      -Japanese Pacific States now has all territories of the west of North America:West-Canada territories and all California (including the Mexico part) 
      -Nazi America now has all the territories of the east of North America,including  Canada territories.
      -Neutral Zone (or Rocky Mountain States) has been ampliated to the north,in the remaining zones in Canada.
      -Finally,has been added a new leader for the Nazi America:George Lincoln Rockwell,the original reichmarshall at the beggining of the serie.

      Hi! I always see maps of WW2,but most of them are of the same ages:1942,1943 and 1945.
      So today I show you a map that I did of WW2 of all the world,but is from 1941,when the nazis haven't declaired war on Soviet Union and USA,so there are more options than in another ages and the map can be more interesting and balanced.
      I am from android and I can't share a download link until the Workshop comes,but I can show you some pictures of the map.
      Greenland and Svalvard are disocuppied like in reality (in the game they are neutral) because I thought it would be better for the game leave them neutral.
      This scenario contains some new leaders,like Philippe Petain in Vichy France and Charles de Gaulle in "Free France" a new state that I created for the map that symbolise the French resistance,like in reality.
      About tecnology:All the civilizations have the standard tecnology level,0.45.
      And the last thing,you must know that this scenario contains some special things due the age (January 1941) like the Greek-Italian war that still continues (and the territory that Greece still have in that moment)
      Finally,the pictures:(if you see an error,please tell me in comments and I will try to fix it)

      Hi! Today I show you a similar map to 1914,a map of 1916 in january,when the central powers "were close" to win WW1 (at least in Europe,with the entry in the war of the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria,and the defeats of Russian Empire in the Eastern front)
      I did two maps of 1916:The first map with only Europe,and the second with all the world (I decided to show you the second one,because it's more complete)
      About tecnology:In the two maps,all the civilizations have the standard tecnology level,0.45.
      I am from android and I can't share the map with you until Workshop arrives,but I can show you some pictures:

      I saw that Lukasz has added the Crimea peninsula as a part of Ucrania,when the Crimea peninsula is now under russian occupation ('Republic of Crimea') so I did some maps and leaders about the "Annexation of Crimea by Russian Federation".
      Some new things:
      -Leader of Ucrania during the provisional government during the Crisis of Crimea of 2014 (Arseni Yatseniuk)
      -The 'Prime Minister' of the 'Republic of Crimea' Serguei Aksionov.
      -Map of the crisis of Crimea (2014) In this map,I added The 'Republic of Crimea' as a vassal of Russia with the best relations,and Ucrania is near to the war with the Republic of Crimea and Russia.
      -I also added The 'Republic of Crimea' in  a Europe map of 1st of january of 2019 (created by me),as a vassal of Russia.
      About tecnology:All the civilizations have the standard tecnology level,0.45.
      Update 26/03/2019:
      I am from android and I can't share a download link until the Workshop arrives,but I can share some pictures with you(The first three pictures are of the map of "Annexation of Crimea by Russian Federation" in 2014,and the other picture it's from the "Republic of Crimea" in my created map "Europe 1st january of 2019")

      Hey guys,today I show you a little rare map:A scenario of the "Revolt of the Comuneros" (or "War of  the Communities of Castile)
      If you don't know about this topic,I leave you a link below about this revolt:
      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolt_of_the_Comuneros
      But basically was a revolt of some communities of Castile against Charles V (Charles I of Spain) because he put foreign people (The majoritie of Holy Roman Empire) in power positions,and this caused that people in Castile maked a rebellion against the House of Habsburg because they though that Charles I favored the people of Central Europe and not Castilians.
      I'm from android and I can't share the map with you until the Workshop comes,but I show some pictures:
      PICTURES:
      https://imageshack.us/i/pmXzhzT1p
      https://imageshack.us/i/pmBO94Zxp
      I didn't add all the House of Habsburg because it would be impossible to win for the Comuneros,and I finally only added all Crown of Castile and Navarra (in that moment under Castilian ocuppation) but I think that I will quit Navarra because it's very unfair for the Comuneros.
      About tecnology:The two civilizations have the standard tecnology level,0.45.
      Finally,the map that was my base for the scenario:
      https://imageshack.us/i/pl0UqvWDp
      Update 26/03/2019:
      -I finally removed Navarra in the map,because it was very unfair for the Comuneros.I won't add more pictures because it's only a change in one province (Navarra)
