It's me again. Sorry to create multiple threads in such a short time period, but I think I found something important:

Rising Sun flag textures have actually been added to the game. Just updated, no mods. What could it possibly mean? *suspicious*

 

P.S. Please keep the replies civil, I don't want this thread locked.

Just checked mine, nothing there??

Flags seem to get pulled from res\content\gameplay\common\flags\flags.dds now - atleast that's what I had to edit to get the RSF mod working again

Strange. Either way, the "flags" folder doesn't seem to be complete - "RM057_Flag_a" (St. Andrews flag from Aurora) isn't there.

Thats most certainly a remnant from using the old mod. Those flags are not used for display on ships anymore.

What was the cause of the flag getting banned anyway?

 

I'll let AALG explain that to you. Because if I were to explain it I would probably get RO'd.

 

To put it simply. A certain group of people seem to have feelings towards a certain flag because it meant a certain something to them.

And WG needs the money for SerB's Space Program.

Wait a second, why the new name then? Fairly sure the flag was called "[...]flag_a.dds", not "[...]flag_d.dds".

 

Oh well, if no one else can confirm this, I guess it was a false alarm.

At one point in time, there was two files used. See the original thread in the old deprecated Alpha section : http://forum.worldofwarships.asia/index.php?/topic/189-testing-japanese-rising-sun-flag-%e8%88%8a%e6%97%a5%e6%9c%ac%e6%b5%b7%e8%bb%8d%e6%97%ad%e6%97%a5%e6%97%97-mods-on-wows/

 

 

(cant recall if beta testers can read the deprecated Alpha section, if you cant, holler, and I'll copy the post over.)

Its globally across all the servers, and across all WG games. Has been like that for ages.

The reason for it is stated here : http://forum.worldofwarships.asia/index.php?/topic/1286-japanese-ships-naval-flag/page__pid__12145#entry12145

here's the gist of what AALG did:

As Nagato said, there is some controversy involved with the Rising Sun flag, so just as WG haven't included the swastika or other nazi related logos in World Of Tanks, the Rising Sun pennant will not feature in WoT nor WoWS.

 

I reckon there will be plenty of modders and skinners who will provide a mod when the game is released, and the mod file struture is implemented in the client. Currently it is not implemented, so adding the flag might break future updates.

But here is the procedure and file, if you want to change it in the Alpha client. Just be sure to follow the procedure, so you can revert back to the stock alpha client, before updates.

 

A) close the client

B) browse to the textures folder for japanese warships in the WoWS alpha client installation folder (typically C:\Games\World_of_Warships\assets\textures\content\gameplay\japan\misc\textures)

C) find and rename the original flag file JM001_flag_d.dds to JM001_flag_d.org, so you have it for safekeeping.

D) download and unpack the new JM001_flag_d.dds file from the attached zipfile, ( Attached File   JM001_flag_d.zip   16.48K and place it into the folder, replacing the flag with the rising sun version.

E) Donate at least 50 USD to the WG ASIA Moderators Summer Ball And Picnic foundation, or promise to buy at least 5 USD worth of gold upon release of WoWS

F) Start the client

 

After the latest patch, the JM001_flag.d.dds file in the above zip file, needs to be to to JM001_flag.a.dds, and substitute the JM001_flag_a.dds file in the above folder as well.

 

EDIT 30/12/2014 : With the new patch, textures and ressources has changed locations, probably in preparation to be compressed into .pkg files and introduction of res_mods, replays etc..


So the new location for the modification to get the rising sun flag in 0.2.3 is typically : C:\Games\World_of_Warships\res\content\gameplay\japan\misc\textures\

 

And two files need to be replaced : JM001_flag_a.dds & JM001_flag_d.dds. 

Just move those two files to a another location on your system for safekeeping, then copy the dds file in the original postto JM001_flag_a.dds & JM001_flag_d.dds in the above folder.
