Athen emblem

Recommended Posts

Currently the rally point and the some new shields by @Alexandermb use the trinacria

But it seems that's just the name greek gave to sicilly  so maybe it should be replaced by owls ?

Personally I think each civilization in game ought to have exactly one, unique faction emblem, which is used for everything (banners on stuctures, rally points, garrison flags, etc.).

@Nescio Sure. Here the question was whether the banner was incorrect. While at it I can fix the garrison flag :)

The use of banners is a bit anachronistic for Classical Greek city-states :)(though not for Persia). But yes, using Athena's owl is certainly preferable. The triskelos-with-gorgoneion is more appropiate for Syracusae; here's a coin from c. 300 BC:

From that I gather banners are not the same as garrison flag in 0 A.D. What's the usage difference exactly?

Looking at the files located in art/actors/props/special/common, I conclude:

garrison_flag_celt.xml → split in *_brit and *_gaul
garrison_flag_hele.xml → split in *_athen, *_mace, *_spart, and *_theb
garrison_flag_iber.xml
garrison_flag_kart.xml → rename to *_cart for consistency
garrison_flag_kush.xml
garrison_flag_maur.xml
garrison_flag_persians.xml → rename to *_pers for consistency 
garrison_flag_ptol.xml
garrison_flag_rome.xml
garrison_flag_seleucids.xml → rename to *_sele for consistency

(It's not really urgent, of course.)

Banners are used for rally points, and if I ever finish that waypoints (D557) garrison flags are put on top of building if they are garrisoned.

If I finish the patch they will be a special kind of waypoints technically you shift click rally points making them actually way points  (Notice it use the incorrect texture)
