View Full Version : Portraits

I'm hoping to replace the existing portraits in game and would be grateful of any submissions. I'll be able to do a few but the game need alot to be fully modded. The portraits need to be cropped to 69 x 96 pixels (don't worry about the border we'll add that). More importantly I'm trying to avoid any photos or obviously modern artwork so we get the right feel for the game. Here are a few examples to start with:

Those are some fantastic examples Hoggy? They seem to all carry the same old world styled painting theme, which I think is a good way to keep going with them, so they all have the same sense of professional continuity to them.

Hoggy, examining the data format in the game, it seems that for each Rome portrait there is a young, older and an old version - as well as some gerneric child portriats.

I was wondering if this could/would be continued in The Blue Lotus?

I don't think it'll be possible in Blue Lotus as already have to find a vast amount of portraits so finding old versions too may not be feasable.

Hoggy, I remember we talked about the possibility of having female generals, but I'm not sure if you remember the discussion.

If you do, you'll EVENTUALLY have to devise a way of doing two things.

1. Ensure that female names and portraits match up and don't conflict with male ones.

2. Ensure that female generals take male "wives" (i.e. not generals as well).

I just wasn't sure if the female portraits meant you'd decided to try it, or not. Just wanted to check. So what are your thoughts on having female leaders?

Also, if we did, would you or someone else make a female general?

I recall in SJTW thread, there was a discussion of portaits, and one gentleman listed numerous URLs that had some China mod portaits. Very nice portraits, go see if you could find'm

Well, I'm not exactly a long time poster, or aid to this mod...but I've had my eye on it, and I'd like to say, you guys are doing an AMAZING job! Anyways, now that my little introductory speel's out, I'd like present this link with a multitude of portraits: http://www.kongming.net/portraits/

Now, these are taken straight out of Koei's Romance of the Three Kingdoms series' (and other of their games), and as such, fit, for the most part, with only the Chinese Empires. However, there ARE over at least 400 portraits in the RotTK VII, VIII, and IX games. I personally really like these portraits, and think they'd fit well with the style you appear to be going for. Hope I've been of some use!
