edit... This is replacing a DLC flag :)



Could you share how you achieved that? Is it also modifying DLC flags used by others?

Of course :) Yes, all the ships flying that particular flag will fly your edited version - so I often edit the least-used flags.


DLC Flag Location

As @Charles Edward Stuart says, the basegame flags are located in the file titled  ' sharedassests0.assets '  .  The DLC flags, however, are accessed through the file titled  ' resources.assets '  .  Following the same path that Charles offered before, choose this file instead.



Finding a Particular DLC Flag

Once you have opened  ' resources.assets '  , I recommend beginning a search for your flag.  I have found success searching by using the name of the flag given in game (omitting the word 'flag')

Here are two example searches:




As in the basegame tutorial, be warned: You are looking for the ' .tex  ' file with a size of approximately 174,000.  It may be necessary to click ' Find Next ' once or twice to locate the proper file.

Not this one:  Capture.JPG

Click Find Next:

This one:         Capture.JPG

And if you were to click Find Next again:

Not this one: Capture.JPG



Other Interests in resources.assets

Using this folder, I have begun editing my map...







Hopefully this helps!

Thank you! That map looks amazing. I once tried to modify the map, but failed miserably. If you ever succeed in modifying it, please, I would love to have that map in my game! xD And thank you for sharing that method, I tried modifying the flags on the resources.assets, but didn't work either. I don't know, maybe I did something wrong with it, I'll glady try that again. @Sir "The Lorax" John

When I tried to modify the map, the cities/ports were out of place, probably because the map I replaced was bigger/smaller than the original one from the game, but noneless it was a replica of the same map, just different colors and different details, must've done something wrong, I'll try something new with it. Did you make that map yourself?
