Vanguard Red Trooper Mod
This mod demonstrates the possibility to overwrite base game content (found in .clb files) by simply adding a copy of a clb from the game into your mod.
The VanguardRedTrooperMod will change the color of the Vanguard Trooper into LiberatorInferno red using the Content Editor only.
This mod contains a copy of Human_Species.clb (found in \Documents\Paradox Interactive\Age of Wonders Planetfall\Mods\ArnoutMod\Libraries\Figure_Skin ). This mod overwrites the existing Human_Species.clb in Content\Title\Libraries\Figure_Skin\Human_Species.clb as the priority of the mod is set higher (Priority 1) in the Package Manager then the base game (Priority 0).
This way you can easily change unit appearance without changing resources (found in .rpk files).
Vanguard Commando Mod
This mods adds a new unit into the game (re)using existing models by creating a new .rpk file.
To check out the unit open the Resource Editor using the Package Manager and open Documents\Paradox Interactive\Age of Wonders Planetfall\Mods\VanguardCommandoMod\Packs\VangardCommando.rpk
The unit needs a name and this is defined in the XML language files. These can be found in Documents\Paradox Interactive\Age of Wonders Planetfall\Mods\ArnoutMod\Language
Note that in order for a new rpk file to be loaded in, it needs to be added to the mod through Content > Resource Packs > Add in the Package Manager.
This mod also features a custom map to quickly test the features of this mod \Documents\Paradox Interactive\Age of Wonders Planetfall\Mods\VanguardCommandoMod\Maps\VanguardCommandoMod.sam
To load the map Start the game -> New Scenario -> Community tab -> Select VanguardCommandoMod.sam and press Start.
The Vanguard Commando will be a core unit for the vanguard (similar to the Vanguard Trooper).
Italian Language Mod Template
This mod is a template for creating and adding the Italian Language to the game. The Quick guide: adding a new language to the game was used to create this mod.
NOTE: this is not the actual Language Mod itself where the game is already translated to Italian.
