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

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

      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

      How to Make Events? 
       
      ×Recipient×
      The country that will receiver the pop-up with the event :T
       
      ×Trigger×
      Trigger are Basically the thing that makes the whole thing work. If the recipient (country) is doing alright with the trigger, than the outcome (result) is going to happen. For exemple: If the trigger is [Civilization Existe: Turkey], If the country Turkey doesn't exists, than the event is not Gonna pop up for the recipient. 
       
      ×Outcome/Result×
      Alright, but in this case, Turkey DOES exists, to the trigger is working, than, the event will do the result. Let's say that in this case, the outcome is [Update Relations with Argentina], than, if Turkey exists <trigger>, Turkey is going to update relations with Argentina <outcome/result>.
       
      Basically version:
       
      Here how events work: a trigger makes the outcome work. For exemplo, if the trigger is [Government] that means that if the recipient has the government: (youchoose) the pop-up will appear. For example:

      That means that if the trigger is good/working (the trigger is usa being communist) IT is going to play the outcome

      I hope you guys understand it. But if you didn't, you Can comment bellow and I Can do a YouTube video maybe

      If you're not so pacient on taking diplomacy with everyone and likes war as this game is dedicated, welcome, this post may help you with some war tactics on this game

      1 - Let them attack: first of all, if you build a good defense against a weaker and smaller nation (Example: China vs North Korea) Let them attack until their economies are struggled, (this may be noticed if they attack with less troops), then after all the attacks, strike violently against the enemy and win the war with low resistance.

      2 - Don't be sieged: NEVER let any enemy siege your army, it may makes it without supplies and weaken army, you may lose alot of troops, that is not glorious and the enemy may push back against you, also do sieges against strong armies of like 2000+ soldiers to weaken the enemy.
      3 - Allies: Allies are the cherry of the cake in this game, with allies together both of you can beat a stronger nation (example Camboja and Laos vs Thailand) they also have a nice force that may help you alot in battle, also if your army is completely destroyed, your ally can still hold the positions when you're recovering your army, i've used this tactic alot of times and worked pretty well.
      4 - You're never overprepared:  Thinking that you're overprepared for any war can be some kind of illusion, (don't think like you can't take luxembourg with 70000 troops, please)  this game is a box of surprises that can destroy you some time (example: 3 nations may declare war at you at the same turn), you need to have absolute trust that you're going to take that country.
      5 - Have a good economy:  To have a good army, you need first to have a very well developed economy,  so you can still be stabilized with an enormous army spending, this may help you to recover the army in case of emergencies, if not have a good economy, VERY HIGH CHANCE of your treasure be negative and you lose cause you can't rebuild the army.
      6 - Armoury and Supply camps: NEVER forget about these 2 buildings, they ABSOLUTELY are important for your wars:
       
      Armoury: Basically troops become cheaper, very good for builds of enormous armies
      Supply Camps: Very important if you're invading a big country (Example: invading russia)


      Thank you all for the attention, Hope i helped you alot, if you got any extra tips, comment it, it may help new players to get good at this kinda complicated game.

      AoC2 Soldier mode is finally released.  There are 3 different tanks, 4 different soldiers, 2 different cannons, 2 different planes.  I can't believe there's such a mode.  Spectacular

      AoC2 Asker modu nihayet yayınlandı.  3 farklı tank, 4 farklı asker, 2 farklı top, 2 farklı uçak var.  Böyle bir mod olduğuna inanamıyorum.  Muhteşem
