Portait icon for all heros

Recommended Posts

I looked for an icon for Ptolemy IV and Ptolemy I and I didn't find any.

for example in 0AD alpha 23 beta, here is the placeholder:
 

units/ptol_hero_ptolemy_IV.xml:11:    <Icon>units/mace_hero_philip.png</Icon

units/ptol_hero_ptolemy_I.xml:11:    <Icon>units/hele_hero_alexander.png</Icon>

For Ptolemy I, it's especially annoying because Alexander has a really singular portrait icon.

Why not set a generic icon in `template_unit_hero.xml` and remove the icons from all hero templates that use another hero's icon, so it's clearer which don't have a unique icon yet?

For mods now I use plqceholders like those. But it'd be nice to have a special icon. Maybe a crown?

you can't make all the portraits at once, without finishing the units of the heroes, they still lack their equipment and their armor. (3d and 2d).

Most of the heroes in the game, especially the Hellenistic ones, are place holders of many others of Alexander the Great, others of Hannibal and so on.

Heroes that currently lack an unique icon:

  • brit_hero_cunobelin.xml
  • iber_hero_indibil_infantry.xml
  • mace_hero_philip_pike.xml
  • ptol_hero_ptolemy_I.xml
  • ptol_hero_ptolemy_IV.xml

(That doesn't mean the others are perfect. Most of them are actor-based and ideally ought to be replaced with proper portraits.)

And I screenshot their actors:

Perhaps someone could properly crop and resize them so these five heroes have at least some icon of their own?
