Hi all,
I'm creating a mod to bring Scotland to the Caribbean.
Soon you will be able to ride the high seas as a pirate from good old Glesga!

I've come across a problem though;

Is there a way to change a faction's colour? I'd like to replace the Dutch with the Scots, but at the moment the text for colonies is still orange - is there a way to change this? I don't want to replace the French, as it'd kick ass to whoop the english and the french as Scotland!

At the moment that's the only problem I have come across - I'm still working on all the text which needs changing, but I've done all the graphics I need to do, so look out for a release soon after I figure out the colours!

-Selkirk

Welcome to the forums Arr!

I don't think it is possible to change the color of the text, might be wrong though,

Nice to see some modding going on.

Thanks for your reply!

I've been looking through HEX files and INI files and all sorts of other files and I can't see a way to change the Nation colours - I guess it's hard coded after all. So I might need to just leave the nation colour as orange :S

You can try digging through the pirates!.exe and finding the variable that effects but I don't think Firaxis would be too happy about it.

The 3D Glasses will come in handy! Never leave home without them!

Yeah I still get the back screen. I'm almost done with a release so I'll upload the files to rapidshare or something in the next few days! Hopefully someone will take some screens and post em here!

Also try making sure your Graphics Card Drivers are 100% up to date.

Don't forget to PM Falconer on the main forum to upload the mod once you are done with it.

Fairly close, I'm hoping to have it finished by sunday, although I'm still looking for some text to edit, and also for the nation colour!

Does anyone have any tips on how to get nation colony flags in their various states to be see through?
