If you are able to do some more accurate austrian uniforms your name will be written down in golden letters.

Austrian Uniforms 1867 - 1898

Infantryman


since the austrian army did not fight from 1867 to 1914 you wont find much pictures where they actually wear their correct clothes. In Battle the wore a field uniform and a field cap while there was a parade uniform and a shako for peace too.

This is how the infantry looks in battle


and if you want to add some more colorful parade styles:
Spoiler


a nco (feldwebel) with hungarian parade style (hungarian style means one wears those skinny trousers and has crossed sleeves unlike the german sleeves which are straight.


An officer in parade uniform


The colour of the collar and of the buttons = a certain regiment
eg orange collar + golden buttons = IR59
or blue collar + golden buttons = IR4
and so on. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_der_k.u.k._Kampftruppen

Many ppl will love you forever...

Hi Parrot! You shiuld try to fo this austrian unit. Looks really good :)

Spoiler
Check this.
https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=11648.15

If you want to make perfect austrian units:
look at this model.



Here you can see an hungarian drummer (it is the marching uniform, that means, no shako was worn and there were no colorful sleeves) A unit can be distinguished as hungarian if it has those skinny hungarian trousers and this little red signs. on the left side there are german troops of austria (also with the marching uniform. Also there are lancers and dragoons in the background.


Here you can see some examples of parade uniforms (which were not worn while in battle but since austria never had a real war since 1867 to 1914 (and uniforms were changed 1898 again) it is up to you if you want to add more colorful parade uniforms or the marching uniform) I suggest a mix of both (marching uniform for everyone except the officer, but still, you are the editor ;D)

Some quick notes:

1) Do NOT use the "uninstall" button, this will remove a bunch of files from your NW folder which is basically the same as dropping a nuke on it. It doesn't work and you'll have the validate your files again.

2) Please CHECK your install path if you are installing either my NW mod or my Blood and Iron mod. For some reason the paths are messed up (I've tried to fix them, but they don't want to cooperate at the moment).

3) Please BACKUP YOUR VANILLA NW FOLDER before installing this mod! If you don't like something, or the installation goes wrong, you'll have something to revert to without any hassle.

Oooo those are some fantastic marches! I should probably throw Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser" in there as well...

Development for this has been on hold while I wrap things up for my NW mod. Expect more updates to surface when that's all done.

Jesus fucking Christ, I spent 20 minutes fighting popups and ads to get this fucking download link... I haven't tried the NW version of this mod, because of the complaints, so I'm just going to try this one to see how it is.

Having tried it, it's alright. I really like the gun sounds, though. Is it possible to get those sounds into NW?

Should be a case of copying the sounds from one folder to the other, possibly renaming them in the process.

I'm afraid that this enhancement will be discontinued, there is nothing more to enhance without making the mod incompatible with vanilla Blood and Iron servers. I'm also working on other projects that require more attention, and this mod will suffer if I continue to work on it.

As it stands, this is a pretty decent boost to the current version of Blood and Iron. I'll leave the thread open for anyone that wants to ask questions and possibly make add-ons for the mod.

When IE comes out, you should consider doing an enhancement for it.
