Recommended Posts

BEFORE ALL this publication will be the same as the one in the Banners section, I will paste it here because this is the TUTORIALS section, do not accuse me of spam xD

This is not spam I put it in tutorials because in the Banners section, not many people see it

 

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

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

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,

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

      Age of Civilizations 2: Ultimate Overhaul
      Development Re-Continues! Discord works!
      Age of Civilizations is a game that focuses on grand strategy, politics and other government driven elements. Łukasz Jakowski however, included something in the game that is rare in other grand strategy games. Customization. Customizing civilizations, leaders, maps, Whole scenarios, events in these scenarios, etc, etc...
      This, i think is a very good thing. The only bad thing about this, is that the game focuses more on the custom creative aspect than the realistic grand strategy one. This mod is going to be an overhaul for both these things.
      Unfortunately, a mod with the same goals named Addon+ is being created right now. My mod is still in a Debug alpha phase, and i can't release it in a state like this.
      This mod will include the following list of things:
       
      Translated Loading Screens
      Scenarios:
      The Great War (World War I) With historical events, leaders and custom civilizations, starting in 1st of January, 1914. (I've started doing it, The events are halfway done!)
       
       
      Overhauling the World War II Scenario in the following ways:
      Adding historical events with descisions.
      Setting an other start time for the Scenario for better readiness.
      Giving More corresponding bonuses to leaders given by their personality.
      Scenario "Die Folge" (The aftermath) happening right after the first world war, (Yes, believe it or not, lots of stuff happened after the first world war) containing a variety of events.
      Scenario "A Modern Mona Lisa" Containing the events of mostly Hitler taking control over germany (1920-1930). If you want to play as a country, that is falling apart at the moment, this is for you.
      A Cold War Scenario is also being made, but i'm not promising anything for this one.
      Backgrounds:
      Including a large variety of backgrounds, from a realistic one with every little mountain on earth, to a low resolution one for computers that can't handle the mod that good.
      Government, ideologies:
      From the leftist Communism the the Extreme right Fascism there are an estimate of ~15 ideologies being made right now including governments that are only avalible on 1 country in real life, or none anymore such as Patriotism (Hungary) Democratic Republic, Deposit Monarchy, so on and so forth. Planning on creating an election system for democratic countries just like in Hearts of Iron IV. Also, new flag overlays, and divisions, for the ones, that like to Roleplay out there! 😉
      Languages:
      Yes, every Scenario, Custom Leader, Loading screen and such will be translated into other*1 languages.
      Custom Maps:
      Custom Maps will be added to the mod, with custom scenarios, so people can create something new on a new map. Current map plans include Hungary, Austria, Germany, Washington, Budapest and The map of Graz.
      Leaders:
      Of course, if we make scenarios, we need to make sure, that we have good leaders for each scenario. From a Revolutionary Gavrillo Princip to an alternative timeline Franz Ferdinand, there will be as much leaders as possible.
       
      Systems:
      -There will be lots of new stuff in the game, as we just decompiled it. These new system include:
      -More types of Vassals (Dominion, Colony, Crown Colony, State, Soviet Socialist State, etc, etc...)
      -Democratic elections all four years, if the country is: Democratic, Republic, City State, Patriotism
      -Ideological support system (See: hearts of iron 4) as you do your actions
      -Changing the values of terrains, planning before war nescessary
      -Adding seasons, each one having it's own effects on attacks, income and happiness
      -Adding religions
      -Adding a "secret service" action, where up to 400 people can work on a specific assignment, such as:
      Assasination
      Espionage
      Capture
      Recapture
      Special Operations
      Unit types, such as tanks, motorized infantry, and planes will be added.
      Nuclear Bombs, that could make a province uninhabitable.
      A launcher.
       
      *1: Other: This mod will not be translated to all languages, as that would be pretty hard to make. If you'd like to translate to your own, come to our discord!

      The economy is the most important thing in Age of civilization 2, without it you couldn't even build up an army to invade other countries or even defend yourself for bigger threats, in this post ill be showing you how to stabilize a prosperous economy in ANY kind of country.

      (Notice that ill be playing as luxembourg in this tutorial)
       
      1 - Taxes, and spending:   One notable thing on taxes is that you can be putting it 1 little more to the acceptable tax and still not loose happiness, good to be winning some tips like 3 - 19 which is good for me. Also set every spending at its minimum (in future we may do some changes).
      2 - Technology points: A very obvious decision for a better economy, i suggest to you be spending more in (Economy growth and income production, also put some in the rest).
      3 - Development: Development is the cherry of the cake talking about economy, the development defines how much less unneployment you have in your nation, with more jobs rising, more gold you will get, all due to yhe investiment on development. So, keep investing alot in development in all provinces ultil it reaches the maximum capacity (defined by technology level).
      4 - Buildings: Building Workshops is a pretty good way to be getting more money, they add up to 5% more income producton (in other levels 10% and 15%), Also building librarys is good to have more technology points and level, (more useful to the 2nd and 3rd tips).
      5 - REEEE at economy: For last, REEEEEE all your money on economy, expending thousands on it, your economy will explode like a nuclear bomb in some turns.
      6 - Other tips: Keep in mind to be upgrading your economy buildings such as the workshop and the library to get more technology points.
       
      After many turns, look what have i done after doing all the tips i gave to you guys. (2731 turns)
      Thank You
      - Yetaloz
