Official House Banner Update Pack
#1
This is the official staging ground for house banners.  Each time NordInvasion is updated, the banners are pulled from here.  You can also download the latest banner pack ahead of time if you don't want to wait for the next NordInvasion update.

Note: Since this is a patch to NordInvasion, if you have any bugs with it, post them here first! Do not report them to the devs! If you still have problems after going back to the "official" banners from the last NordInvasion update, then you can make a bug report in the help section.

Banner Guidelines [Source]
  • No copyrighted images
  • Nothing inappropriate (ex. profane words, nudity, explicit/offensive symbols, etc.)
  • Attempt to make it look like a proper banner, not just an image formatted in a banner shape. For example use the cloth layer style as a template to build upon when making a banner.
  • House must be an official house on the House Index (as the Index is not really kept up anymore, this is not really a rule right now)
Note: A recruitment page would be nice too, so that I can see that your house is still active and has an acceptable number of members.


How to Install
  1. Go to {Warband installation folder}/Modules/NordInvasion/Textures (make sure you are in the NI mod files and not the Warband native texture files)
  2. Make a backup of banners_a.dds through banners_g.dds
  3. Download the latest version of the banner pack (download link below)
  4. Copy over the texture files to the folder specified in step 1. You are replacing banners_a.dds, banners_b.dds, banners_c.dds, banners_d.dds, banners_e.dds, and banners_g.dds. Note that banners_f.dds, banners_default.dds, and banners_kingdoms.dds should remain unchanged.
  5. If you were running NordInvasion while doing this, restart it (textures only load at the start of the game)
Note: You can download the individual banner sheets or download the .zip from the upper-right corner of the Dropbox page. There are also preview images in the BannerImages folder but make sure you don't try to replace your .dds files with the .png preview files.

Banner Sheet Index

Common Issues
  • All emblems have grey stripes on the right and left side. That's there in Native and is a bug in the Warband graphics so it won't change here.
  • The back of heraldic mail is the same as the original banner position's color. This was an issue with the base NordInvasion textures as well.  It is known how to fix it but requires changes to game files other than textures which is not in scope of this pack.
  • An asterisk (*) in the banner map means the slot will be replaced due to inactivity. If you are a leader of a house that has been marked inactive and would like your banner to remain in-game, please contact me. If a house is removed from the Official House Index, that house's banner will likely be marked as inactive on the banner map.

There once was a rather strange mammal,
Who went by the name of Saxon Camel,
With the Fire & Sword,
He killed all the Nords,
And burned down his own TeamSpeak Channel.
