Download link for Ancient-Shivan War Mod? Also Questions about Briefing Icons
I'm making a mod, and I am trying to cross-reference how BP made Vishnan briefing icons work, vs. how ASW made its briefing icons work. Basically I need the Akrotiri/Sacred Keeper icon (and those for other Vishnan/Ancient ships) in my mod.

I went looking for a non FSO-installer solution to getting the Ancient-Shivan War mod, and found very little. Does an unzippable direct download exist? I used to have this mod, until my hard drive exploded.

As for briefing icons, I've successfully surmised the following:

- The files I am looking for are .ani's.
- They generally come in pairs, one normal and one doing a fade-out.

It appears that I can designate an icon for a ship using $Briefing icon: in either ships.tbl or ships.tbm.

Strangely, I cannot find any $Briefing icon: data in the ship.tbm files for Blue Planet. Nor have I had success finding the .ani that matches the Sacred Keeper/Akrotiri.

I copied & pasted the BP Vishnan Sacred Keeper (and akrotiri.pof) into my mod's appropriate folders, but the error I get tells me that I am missing somthing in icons.tbl.

BP's icons.tbl is as clear as alien heiroglyphs. I did change 'Vishnan' to 'Preserver' for the context of my specific mod, but the word 'Vishnan' does not appear anywhere in icons.tbl (except following a semicolon, and as I understand, FS2 ignores those parts). Even more confusing, it is filled with what appear to be multiple duplicate entries:

If you want to know, what my nickname means, -chen is a german diminutive term, so you can translate Novachen as something like Little Nova or Novalet.
Even my original meaning of this name is more like "Sweet pretty deadly (Super)Nova" ;).

 
Re: Download link for Ancient-Shivan War Mod? Also Questions about Briefing Icons
Awesome, thank you very much for the links! :yes:

Someone should probably update the ASW wiki page & the campaign release thread to link to that page.

Re: Download link for Ancient-Shivan War Mod? Also Questions about Briefing Icons
icons.tbl is as clear as alien heiroglyphs
It's not an intuitive table, for sure. The wiki tries to explain it, but let me see if I can explain it in a different way.

Rather than having labels determine where sections begin or end, icons.tbl depends on everything being in a specific order (which is why BP's icons.tbl labels things with comments, because otherwise it's damned near impossible to keep track). There are 35 icon types (listed in the aforelinked wiki page), and each icon type needs 3 filenames per species: the "regular" frames, the "fade" frames, and the "highlighting" frames. That last one gets reused a lot, because everything in regular freespace is highlighted in the same way (just need different-sized animations for different-sized icons). So, if you try to copy a section of an icons.tbl from one mod to another mod without identical species entries in species_defs.tbl, it won't make any sense unless you account for the differences (if you have fewer icons defined than FSO is expecting, it leads to the "The following species are missing icon info in icons.tbl" error you got).

Re: Download link for Ancient-Shivan War Mod? Also Questions about Briefing Icons
Each species needs it's own icons. Whole set, so if you add a new species, make sure every section of icon type has it's entry. It will work if you just double entries of different faction. If your new species is done via modular table [tablename-sdf.tbm], it will be rendered as 4th race.
Code: [Select]

$Name: iconT-fighter ; regular
$Name: FadeiconT-fighter ; fade anim

$Name: FadeiconV-fighter ; fade anim
$Name: iconhighlight04 ; highlight anim

$Name: iconS-fighter ; regular
$Name: FadeiconV-fighter ; fade anim
$Name: iconhighlight04 ; highlight anim
This is regular icons.tbl file, and...

Code: [Select]
; ICON_FIGHTER
$Name: iconT-fighter ; regular
$Name: FadeiconT-fighter ; fade anim
$Name: iconhighlight04 ; highlight anim

$Name: iconV-fighter ; regular
$Name: FadeiconV-fighter ; fade anim
$Name: iconhighlight04 ; highlight anim

$Name: iconS-fighter ; regular

$Name: iconNfight ; regular

$Name: iconhighlight04 ; highlight anim
This is icon entry from Shadow Genesis, with Nightmares added. Go and make every icon entry the same way. Types are listed under "Allowed Icon types" section on wiki page, as AdmiralRalwood mentioned. Briefing icons may be also png sequences with eff container files. If you want to make your own icons [it's pretty easy], you may use this technique. ANI files are obsolete, and SCP team is doing their best to rid this off from usage. I can't wait for shield icons to work this way.

Keep in mind one thing: A new species must have it's own debris [asteroid.tbl], flyby sound [sounds.tbl], icons as mentioned earlier and entry in species-defs [or modular -sdf.tbm] to work properly.

Go ahead and see how it's done in Shadow Genesis. SG has both new species, and custom icons defined in ships.tbl [GTSD Anchorage for example].

Is this already implemented o__O? Well, I was thinking that shield icons must stay as ani files. I haven't seen this being used anywhere.

Well, it makes all the job easier.

If there's anywhere in the code an ANI can be used, an EFF or APNG can be used instead. If they cannot, that's a bug and should be reported (but given how the animation code is structured, I can only imagine it being a piece of code that didn't use the animation code for some unfathomable reason).
