Alternate images for infantry

Step I:
Art. You can simply recolor the infantry to light allied for an.. improved.. look. Put in an ecache(MD)XX mix.

Step II:
Coding.

Say you want to give.. the Conscript.. snow-cameo.

Open Rules/RulesMD, hit Ctrl-F, type '[E2', and press enter.

You should see this
[E2]
UIName=Name:E2
Name=Conscript
Image=CONS
Category=Soldier
Primary=M1Carbine
Occupier=yes ; I can Occupy UC buildings
Prerequisite=NAHAND
CrushSound=InfantrySquish
Strength=125
Armor=flak
TechLevel=1
Pip=white
Sight=5
Speed=4
Owner=Russians,Confederation,Africans,Arabs
Cost=100
Soylent=20
Points=5
IsSelectableCombatant=yes
VoiceSelect=ConscriptSelect
VoiceMove=ConscriptMove
VoiceAttack=ConscriptAttackCommand
VoiceFeedback=ConscriptFear
VoiceSpecialAttack=ConscriptMove
DieSound=ConscriptDie
Locomotor={4A582744-9839-11d1-B709-00A024DDAFD1}
PhysicalSize=1
MovementZone=Infantry
;MovementZone=InfantryDestroyer ;GEF wow!!! copy paste bug from the original Disk Thrower!
ThreatPosed=5 ; This value MUST be 0 for all building addons
VeteranAbilities=STRONGER,FIREPOWER,ROF,SIGHT,FASTER
EliteAbilities=SELF_HEAL,STRONGER,FIREPOWER,ROF
ImmuneToVeins=yes
Size=1
ElitePrimary=M1CarbineE
IFVMode=2

Under 'Primary=M1Carbine*', put 'AlternateArcticArt=yes'.

Save, close Rules/RulesMD, open Art/ArtMD, hit Ctrl-F, type '[CONS]', and hit enter.

You should see this
[CONS] ; Conscript
Cameo=E2ICON
AltCameo=E2UICO
Sequence=ConSequence
Crawls=yes
Remapable=yes
FireUp=6
PrimaryFireFLH=60,0,100

Copy this, paste it below, and edit it to

[CONSA] ; Arctic Conscript
Cameo=E2ICON
AltCameo=E2UICO
Sequence=ConSequence
Crawls=yes
Remapable=yes
FireUp=6
PrimaryFireFLH=60,0,100

Save, exit, and play RA2/YR.

Too long and boring. Cut the codes out and it will be a nice, clean tutorial.

Yep.

Took me a while to figure out why GI's had no cameo and weird art on snow maps.

really all u need was to say was

(1) add 'AlternateArcticArt=yes' to whatever inf unit u want to use a different uniform or whatever on snow maps for example GI

(2) in art copy that units art but add A a to the end of name so for instance [GIA], [TANYA], etc

(3) have a shp called GIA etc in ecache mix with a XX number do 10+ since community patches

Then load up snow map, build inf and enjoy

The more adventurous could change snow theater to something more exotic or so that unit has completely different look on that map (e.g. nude or wearing a hat or turn in a woman etc, etc)

amended Razz

Has anyone tried using the building alt image method on infantry or vehicles? I bet it's worth a try.

You never know if the game will read voxels and/or infantry shps out of isotem(md).mix
