You should put the editor icon which is located in
Editor\IconCache\AdvMapObjectLink\MapObjects\_(AdvMapObjectLink)\Monsters\NCF\Creature_188
instead of the actual icon in the Complete\...\ directory cause once the editor creates its own little icon, you don't need the original icon (.tga file) at all.

Also you should keep the folder structure of the game so you should put your .pak file in the data\ folder and the Editor icon with it's complete path so all you have to do is extract the zip/rar file in your H5-TotE folder instead of having to move the files manually.

Those are details, but I think that simpler is better. And limiting the handling someone has to do limits the error risks.

I tell this to you, but it's valid for any other NCF_Based creature that people will create.

I agree with Neckie's comments.

However, adding the Complete/... .tga or .dds source icon also makes sense, because if people use localized texts, then the creature name will be localized in the editor (under the icon).

Speaking of which, Radar, your Arcane Blades already have a french lang pack:

Ok, I will keep first pack. Mapmakers will choose which they want.


I'm looking forward to see French text localized to English also

The best prize for a mod creator is to see his creature used in some new map. Thanks for translation!

Uhm, Wulftsan, didn't I make the same suggestion three times in the UD faction mod?
(Possessed Blades, Demon Blades and Spirit Blades?)
I feel ignored....

Well I guess great minds think alike, gj Radar.

Hi ^^
I'm new here and I like your creature, it was a very good idea ! I think to upgrades. May I create them ? I had to ask you because it is YOUR creature and YOUR original idea. If you on't want, I will understand.
I think to take as base model the SkyDaughter, but only her blades (I know how to use and modify the alpha channel). I will change colors of this blades. I will add the same effect too, but in another color.

May I ?

PS : Excuse me for my English, but I'm Belgian and speak french ^^

Feel free to do so

Just remember A. Blades originally are already upgraded creatures, so you'll have to make downgrade and one upgrade.

I have a suggestion. give them a protection against shooter because they should be hard to hit from a great distance.
