Woof, I love the new Gems also, especially the right one is very pretty.

Redox > About the .dds files, I seem to recall downloading a freeware once called DDS Converter, which allowed me to change .dds files into .jpg files and vice-versa. Program was not completely easy to use, however, but you can give it a try. I'm pretty sure Photoshop will do it, if you have access to that.

Yeah, but where's Daystar, why isn't he replying

So basically the things we need for better-looking resources are:
- The 3 sizes of colored gems icons in .dds format
- The texture of the adventure map gem pile WITHOUT the ugly bottom
- Possibly a texture for the Gem mine with colored stones
- A grayscale mercury







^ Basically these (+ the mercury and the mine),but in .dds

Sorry I've been gone, but I got TOTE and oh my goddess it is so fun!!!!!!!

I'm a little less than halfway through the campaigns.  Ornella rocks.   Kujin Rocks!  Arantir is annoying, but ah well, you get to kill him in Dark Messiah anyway.

Here you are: Colored Gems mod

I did a quick texture edit for the gem pond, but it should be ok. Tell me if something doesn't work.
Of course, the .h5u file is to be placed in your UserMODs/ folder in ToE. If you're running H5/HoF, simply rename the .h5u to .h5m and place it in Maps/ instead.

It works fine !

I'll try to make some changes by myself as soon as I have time :
- Change the color of the biggest cristal in the center (still a lot of blue in overall).
- Change ground color to a darker one, maybe more brown (to make the colors of gems more visible
- Try to change the look of the resource in the mine (if I find the texture )

I guess I just have to extract textures, modify with a mysterious software (I ll check the modding guide) and put it back in a renamed zip file ?

Yeah, It works perfectly, but there are some small problems:

- The bottom of the gem piles is white, which looks pretty ugly. You need to make it transparent or color it in light blue.

- You forgot to fix the texture of the gem mine ON SNOW TERRAIN (there are 2 types of gem mines - on snow and on other terrain)

Besides that, it's nice

marvelous work (i did not play on snow terrain thus it's a 100% good work for me for now but snow gems mines have to be redrawned!!)

by the way I use the excellent Xaszardous townbuilding mod.
I tried to switch gems icons used by Xaszardous new building screen but I didn't success...


anyone clever than me could do the job maybe?

Can you tell me how to launch the mod in TOTE? I will then make the gems appear in the title bar.

Btw - I made some improvements to the colored gems mod. They are now without the white bottom part and the icon is more "colorful".

You did great job ! I thought it would be better with a brown ground, but this way is just perfect It makes it very dfferent from other resources.

(But I preferred the former colored icon ^^)

download the zip (see my previous post for the url)
unzip the .h5m file to the "userMODs" repository of TotE
rename the .h5m into .h5u

et voilą

I just noticed that the bottom of the cristal also disappeared. Is there no way to remove one and keep the other ?

There is a way, but I removed the bottom of the crystal because I think it also looked ugly. If want to bring back the crystal bottom, open the gem mod .h5u file with WinRAR and go to the _(Model)/Resources folder. Inside, simply delete the crystal-ruby(texture).dds

Edited by sfidanza at 12:20, 31 Oct 2007.

I updated the mod (colored_gems.h5u) on AoH, using the textures modified by Radox for the mines and the 3d Gems. I also included the icon for Xazardous_TownBuild_Mod. Of course, if the TownBuild_Mod is updated, it might require changing the files date of the recolored gems as well.

Colored Gems mod

Note that I kept it as a colored gems mod, so I didn't use the texture for the 3d crystal from Radox.
