Flags
« on: August 06, 2018, 01:14:37 pm »
I tested the flag stuff a bit and realized that only RANDOMSOLDIERS (the one at the start of a game) get completely random flags, the ones that are generated in-game by hiring get flags according to the nationality RNG number e.g 00 is american and uses american names etc.

However, to make this work properly you have to connect the flag to the(alphabetically ordered) soldier-name -files properly which isn't the case in X-Files. 

Anyway, to make it work properly, here the corrected entries to show what i mean. As there is no generic ARABIC flag, i used egypt as an example etc. Polynesia seems to be missing as wel, but you get the picture...

hope this is understandable, it's monday, you know  ;D

tldr: Flag 00 is connected to Soldiername-file 00, flag 01 to soldiername file 01 etc. the soldiername files seem to be aplphabetically ordered. RANDOMSOLDIERS are random, though.

Small update of "flagology" knowledge base:

Soldiertransformations also randomize the flag/nationality entry.  :)

This is portably because each solder have by default assigned random look and transform do not copied this values from old solder.

If the soldier is not being cloned, nationality is preserved.

If the soldier is cloned, nationality is preserved only if the clone is of the same type as the original.
This is because different soldier types can have different number of nationalities (and flags) (e.g. humans 30+ nationalities, dogs 1 nationality)... so next time you're reborn as a dog, no swiss passport for you.

Nope. Look is copied over.

Hey guys.
Small question.
Is there a file that govern chance of specific nationalities appear?
I try to RP as a Russia formed and backed organization(as USA have their own MiB) but if I simply remove some other nationalities the one I get had mixed flags.
Do I need rename flag names(the numbers) so they mirror number of name list that left?
