Nice job, but I would recommend blurring out the rising sun in this forum post.

Thanks for pointing out, but I don't think the rising sun is legally sensitive since it is still in use by Japanese navy today. I'll temporarily keep it that way until get warned by any moderator.

Kinda strange that you're not allow to show it on forum when the nazi flag is flow freely in game. What kind of double standard is this?

 

I can understand and respect the sensitivity but WG should at least keep it on the same page.

It's a black and red scheme used albeit might be the iron cross in centre instead of the swastika, but nevertheless not the current German navy flag

it's the swastika and only the swastika that has the problem, it is illegal to be shown in some of european countries, germany especially. it's an legal issue. the iron cross replacement is a common way of avoiding this issue.

 

the rising sun on the other hand, is an another thing IMO. I've never been any debate in the forum, but as far as I can understand, it's "for the feelings of asian players who has unique emotional resistance against japanese war flag that used during the war". WG don't want to lose their audience because of this matter.

 

or, maybe the rising sun flag is also banned in some east-asian countries as I am not aware of.

It's more of a Korean thing. 40,000 Koreans protested on Change.org to remove the Rising Sun flag from the game and WG added a bonus by banning the flag on the forum but they don't really enforce it. Koreans are known to have a sort of "inferiority complex" or "victim complex." Many may call such a thing racist, but it's been proven and shown in history. It's the difference between 19 Century history seen from the Western side versus the Asian side.

 

As for the Chinese... well, according to my research, Chinese players didn't really care about the flag shown in the game, to begin with. Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Either ways, thanks for the mod. The current flag mod I'm using broke all the countries' flags and turned them into French flags with a standard length and tiny width. Weird glitch IMO.

Thanks for the explanation, very informative.

 

The game changed the flag texture completely in 0.4.1, therefore all old flag mods don't work anymore. Wait for the new updates, or just simply use mine. I'm sure it's the best flag mod so far.
