Basic Description: Transparent Strategic Icons

[What does the install button do?]


Some mods conflict with each other, due to the nature of modding in Planetary Annihilation. Typically, mods conflict when they alter the same files of the game using a technique called shadowing. When this happens, only one of the mods changes are applied to that file; likely breaking the other mod entirely, or stopping it from working as intended. Server mods are the most likely to conflict with one another, as shadowing unit data files is the dominant method of creating server mods. This section outlines what mods probably conflict with this one, it's not exhaustive and may (rarely) contain false positives.

This mod is known to conflict with 26 other mods:

This section is updated manually, which I aim to do once a month. The last time it was updated is the last time modconflicts.json was updated in this github repository.


This icon pack is a good improvement over the standard icons. The icons are smaller, bolder, and use transparency where necessary to emphasise more important units. Different coloured outlines are also used well to emphasise different units (fabbers have a white outline, others black). The icons themselves are also much clearer, it's a lot easier to determine which unit is which (even with units of the same type and tier).

I recommend you try this mod for at least a few days. Something as fundamental as unit icons needs a little getting used to, but it may be worth it.


The icons with this mod are smaller and more distinct.

The default icons in the game (v68568) for comparison.
