  • This SoWGB mod is now ready. Once again, this mod wouldn't be possible without the invaluable help of Pom, who has made some brilliant new sprites, alessillo, Gunship and the Kriegspielers.

    Mod Download - www.dropbox.com/s/kxjdszx0zmq5ror/First%20Sikh%20War.7z?dl=0

    Map India_1 Download - www.dropbox.com/s/qjvm8mhxdwmrblq/India_1.7z?dl=0

    Map India_2 Download - www.dropbox.com/s/sklmv0f7cnaa325/India_2.7z?dl=0z

    Incl:

    - New sprites by Pom and alessillo
    - 2 new Indian maps
    - 2 SR1 OOBs - Mudki and Aliwal
    - 2 SR1 lite OOBs - Mudki and Aliwal
    - New sounds

    PLEASE NOTE - This mod offers 2 types of SR1 OOBs. For both types you should amend the sprite ratio in the main options screen to 1:1.

    SR1 OOBs (e.g. OOB_SB_SW_Mudki_SR1) are the usual style - i.e. regiments equal companies etc - and include large numbers of units.

    SR1 Lite OOBs (e.g. OOB_SB_SW_Mudki_SR1L) are designed to help with control. These OOBs still use the SR1 layout but fold 8 companies into 4. They retain the appropriate number of troops in the condensed companies so one company has the same number of troops as two. Cavalry numbers are also significantly reduced as the lack of auto squares in SoWGB means cavalry is far too strong if playing against the AI.

    That said, if your PC is older, you may wish to choose 1:4 for both types of OOB as this may be easier on your machine. Uniforms should be set to best in the options menu.

    Installation

    1. Download the First Sikh War mod and India maps to your desktop.

    2 Unzip using 7zip using the Extract To command. This should create a folder with the mod files inside it.

    3. Do the same for the India_1 and India_2 maps.

    4. Copy the First Sikh War folder and 2 map folders to your SoWGB mod folder.

    5. To activate, select the mods (make sure a 'yellow block' is shown next to the mod and maps) in the modifications selection screen, accept and then choose the mod and India maps in the Sandbox selection screen.

  • Thanks for the comments, chaps. Much appreciated.

    By God, sir! Elephants!

    .... Indeed.Pom excelled himself. It's the Sikh army commander sprite. But there are elephant-drawn guns B)

    And for redcoat, some more of his work on the Brit/John Company forces...

  • I think that's what is so brilliant about modding - you can cover some really interesting and lesser known conflicts.

  • The KS group played a test MP game with this last night. Its as good if not better than it looks. The sprites are amazing, the map is fantastic, the elephants are very big and very grey. My main reservation is its done on a 1:1 scale and doesn't work at that scale because the armies are so big. It would also work better in the WL engine due to the fact the AI can't form squares in GB and the unit and brigade pathing and spacing is better in WL. It uses a denser smoke as well which for me playing at 2yds HITS height is too dense. Couldn't see a thing! The smoke will look better for players using a greater camera distance.
