Display Nuke/TML icon on map after scout

Postby Okpuck » 26 Jun 2018, 10:24

Hi all,

Often according to color army, it is difficult to distinguish TML/TMD or Nuke after scout.
Is there any mod which displays nuke or TML with specific icon on the map after scout?
If no then I think that it would be useful except if it is seen as a trick.

It's too much.... Is it possible to define the Advanced Strategic Icon only for the Nuke and the TML?

it is possible but wouod require you to do some research and edit the mod. you have to delete all the custom icons except for the ones you want.

Rename the ".scd" file to ".zip"

Now you can open it as normal zip archive.

Unhappily I failed.....
The file "Advanced strategic icons.nxt" under C:\ProgramData\FAForever\gamedata is compressed. I succeeded to unzip with 7zip tool. To make just a trial, i re-zipped the file by renaming it such as "Advanced strategic icons.nxt" and in the game it is failed. I didn't see the strategic icons. The problem comes from compression. How is compressed the file?
