Settlers 1 reference!

SettlersIVEasterEgg

 

I found this little easter egg a while ago… Basically, one of the roman’s eyecatchers is a medieval knight… A little out of place, but if you take a closer look, you will be able to notice that it is Settler 1’s boxart knight! Nice, huh?

Anyway, will(try to) keep you updated! And sorry for forgetting about the blog for what seemes like an eternity.

Coming tomorrow…”Community Pack”

So… First of all, I was travelling to Germany(where I am right now), so I wasn’t able to post anything while on the airport…

Aaaaaanyway, as I am in Germany right now, I could finally met up with my recently bought”Community Pack”… There are some more things, but that’s a little secret for now. Expect a short entry about the last Settlers IV expansion pack coming tomorrow, though!

(Oh, and the most filled up main menu you could think of!)

Texture swapper for tropical textures

So… Yesterday(well, technically today) I told you how to play DNW with an english Settlers IV installation…

Anyway, on the comment section of GOG’s announcement video, I remembered that, like a year ago, I found a pretty useful mod that allowed to play with the tropical textures on ANY map, even campaign missions(specially appropiate for mayan missions like Shores of Gold)… Let’s take a look at it, now shall we?
