Default [REL] Kill Flags Mod



Welcome Captain, thanks for visiting. We hope you enjoy our mod. -The Kill Flags Mod Team
Sober -> Kill Flag Updates.
Digital_Trucker --> Battle Flag updates,
New Boat Emblems, Kill Flags, Battle Flags and Plaques.
Te Kaha --> Idea of putting ribbons and awards.
Neilbyrne --> Information regarding multiple ribbons, and ribbon order.

Letterboy1 --> New Boat Emblem skins.
Sqk7744 --> New Boat Emblems, Kill Flags, Battle Flags and Plaques.

================================================== ================
NEW BOAT'S ARE READY FOR DOWNLOAD: These are Emblem only (no kills) for a Fresh Career Start.

1.CLICK TO REQUEST A NEW BOAT
(that is not in the Fleet Roster list below)

2.CLICK TO FILE A PATROL REPORT
(for a boat that is listed in the Fleet Roster below)


a.Click-here to view the growing FLEET!

b.Click-here to see real WW2 Battle Flags

c.Click-here for Photos-Screenshots

---------
Read on:

================================================== ========
KILL FLAGS FAQS:

1) The game assigns you a boat (or you assign yourself one by making changes to some game files)

2) You go to Battleflags.net submarine list and look in your class of boat to see if we have already "built" your sub.

3a) If the sub is there, you download it, extract it, put it in your MODS folder and activate it like any mod.

3b) If the sub is not there, then you request it here and we "build it" and let you know when it's done so you can download it. If you can't find an emblem (or trust us completely to give you a good one) we have sources to get emblems and patches. If you go looking for an emblem/patch yourself, make sure and get the best quality and largest image you can find. The bigger and better the patch image is, the better the patch will look on the flag and the emblem will look on the sub.

4) At the end of each patrol, you file a patrol report at the link in the first post in this thread. In this patrol report you give us your TOTALS for the sub that you are currently in command of.

If you have any more questions, just keep asking 'till we get it answered.

Thanks DT!


FooFighters FooSkins' Site: First get a http://www.oldsmobile1958.com/silenthunter/

================================================== ===========

The following Hi-Res FooSkin Templates are ready on Battle Flags.net, in the 'Download a Boat' section:
Fleet Roster List:


Here's how it works:
We're releasing default subs in batches.
Hop over to http://battleflags.net/

1. First you get a hi-res fooskin -FooFighters' with a boat emblem on it.

2. Click on the 'Download a boat' link.

3. Then after your patrol, let us know your results via SEND KILL FLAG REPORT link and form.

4. We'll modify the tower file (T01.dds or T02) you are using and then we'll post a .zip file in the appropriate empty folder structure with just those two files on the Kills Flags update page by your user name and send you a PM.

5. Click on KILL FLAGS UPDATES and find your subsim username, click again.

6. Left-click or right-click on your update and save to a temp folder.

7. Extract and copy & paste into your SH4\MODS folder.

8. Run JSGME.
This will overwrite just the new dds files (Conning Tower Kill Flags files), but keep the original skin you installed as this will save on download sizes.

9. Run SH4

10. ENJOY YOUR HARD EARNED KILLS!

---------------------------------------------
[New Boat Installation 'Destructions']
1. http://www.battleflags.net/ and click the Download a Boat link
2. Select a Boat Class
3. Choose your boat and Right click on the zip file
4. Extract to a temp location
5. Copy and Paste into your SH4\Mods Folder
6. Drag over via JSGME
*note: you can only use one 'Kill Flags' boat class at a time via JSGME -otherwise the texture will overwrite

Additional MOD Instructions:

================================================== ================

Q: Since this is a graphics-based mod I shouldn't have to be in port before applying changes, correct?

A: Yes, it's just a texture mod, easy on/off via JSGME...now having said that...no Promises and use at own risk if installing out of Port and/or during a Patrol, starting a career, on Leap Year, under a full moon, etc.

Permissions:
- No images, materials, absolutely nothing, within The Kill Flags Mod may be used for any commercial product of any size, shape or form.

- The Kill Flags Mod is freeware, made by the SH4 modding community. All permissions of individual mods are subject to their author's permissions.

Cheers,


Many thanks to Captain Cox and FooFighters for their great skins!

************************************************** ************
Awaiting an update?

Check the End of this Thread for messages and please check your Kill Flags folder

************************************************** ***********
Q: WHAT DO ALL THOSE SYMBOLS MEAN ANYWAYS?
A: Good question, you came to the right place Mate

The images below are what we used to get started for the Kill Flags Mod.
(see above and then return to this line )


* Capital ships were also marked over the IJN flag eg: BB, CV, CVE
From what we have researched, the Battle Flags themselves we're all homemade and not to any real template:
( We would love to hear more from a RL expert/boat veteran )

See the Battle Flags site for a good intro and examples of all the different flags from real boats:

This is a very cool mod, really gives you a sense of attachment to your boat something akin to what RL skippers and crew felt for their boats. Right now I'd be gutted if I lost Triton!!

Thanks mrbeast that's the way I feel about the Thresher and how all this got started!

Please fill-out a report after completing your next war Patrol and we'll update your kill flag!

Thanks Weather-guesser!

Yes, lots of work and a great team!

By allowing folks to Download completed boats, then to stack on to them with kills, it has helped allot vs. a one on one release.

Thanks again for posting!

Cheers,
