Ever though about these units for maybe a sub-mod people can use? 8th King's Regiment of Foot. 49th Regiment of Foot.

We have been working to make the game easier to mod by making sure that shared resources amongst units are at a minimum, like pants. The 8th and 49th are both great regiments but we had only so much space and regiments that were different in appearence from the vanilla game with good war records were ultimately chosen, the exception being the 41st which looks very much like the 33rd. If a person desires to have these units represented in the game, changing the facings on the early war 1st Royal Scots to green to make the 49th and altering the lace to square loops on the same uniforms to make the 8th would be the easiest conversions. Mr Kochi also has some British Army templates available on his mini-mod thread that make it much easier to create new British regiments.

The Star-Spangled Banner? Well, I am pretty sure a flag bearer can choose up to four flag selections technically speaking.

The "eagle thing" or the National Standard carried by US regular army units is what was going on from 1812-15 so that is why we are using it. If you must have the Stars and Stripes a version of it was carried by the 5th Maryland State Militia who are currently in the mod.

wouldn't it make more sense to have the eagle thing and the Star-Spangled Banner rather than the state flag?

We are doing what makes sense historically according to the research we have done with some occasional compromises for practical reasons.

Idk what is historical about not having it :/ and for practical reasons wouldnt it be fairly easy to replace the state flags with a national flag?

I am pretty sure I can include up to four (if not more) colours for selection for an ensign/color sergeant. So that is not an issue of space.

could you use the same flag the US has when it defends on sieges so you dont have to redo anything

The Stars Spangled Banner is in the mod. It is the United States faction flag and it flies over fortresses when the US is defending on siege maps. However, it was not carried by US infantry regiments when on the march. The flags in the game that are being carried by the standard bearers are the ones that were used by their respective regiments historically. If you would like to modify any of them after download that is your prerogative. All you have to do is change the texture sheet to whatever you want.

Then why does the 5th Maryland carry the Star spangled banner? And of course i could do it myself but this is a suggestion thread so yeah.

The 5th Maryland were a state militia regiment and not a part of the regular US Army and were therefore not subject to it's regulations concerning national and regimental colors.
