Title: [0.9.1a] Interesting Portraits Pack || 375!! || (v1.2)

I found out about this game from SsethTzeentach and I wanted to repay the devs and community for allowing people to try before you buy.
This pack has 345 375 portraits. All have been modified to fit the various factions or Starsector's aesthetic in general. All portraits are exclusive to each faction. I wanted to keep it immersive and complement the portraits that are already ingame.

This mod also fixes the stunning lack of shoulder birds, a necessity for ship's captains in any era.
It took a long time and lot of work, but I learned a lot and I'm happy with the result. Enjoy!

I give permission for anybody to use these for their own mods. My only request is credit and a link back to this thread so people know where they came from.

I'm doing a bit of clean up for you, just some minor things.
Several folders in the directory were unneeded, and I'm giving all the portraits a unique prefix so they're compatible with other portrait packs (and bo-oy is renaming all those pictures not fun :P ).
Hope you don't mind?

EDIT: Since it may massively speed it up if the answer is no; are all 345 pictures unique?

Thanks for this man. I love those Nobunaga 201X portraits! Where did you find them with black/invisible background? All I found are those with striped background from the game

A lot of them were done by hand using the striped background images from the official site, and for the others I found ones with transparent backgrounds here: https://koei.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Nobunaga_no_Yabou_201X_Character_Images

Glad you like it!

Great job ! This is for me the best portrait mod for Starsector particulary for the vanilla style.
Why the mod isn't registered in the mod index ? I also suggest to implement it within the version cheker mod.

Again great job  ;D

I just wanted to say that these look amazing.  I've been looking for a portrait pack that has a similar art style as the originals and you REALLY hit the nail on the head with these (and I can't fathom why these aren't linked on the front page of the mod index with the other portrait packs).  Thank you so much dude  :D

bo-oy is renaming all those pictures not fun :P ).

You can use Total Commander file manager to batch rename files -select files, press Ctrl+M, edit the formula, press Enter. The shareware version is unrestricted besides a nag screen on startup.
I know it's a bit late now, but you may still find it useful in the future.

Hey I made a trimmed down edit of this mod for my new game that removes a few portraits that don't fit in well with vanilla's grounded space-slav aesthetic. Basically I axed anything that features a brandished weapon, pet, ornate/overly styled uniform, anyone with an impractical haircut or outfit in a military faction(diktat, league, hegemony), any luddic that doesn't look like a simple space shepherd and anyone who's simply too cute for the space dark ages. All told I only cut like 15% of the portraits, most fit in pretty well with vanilla's style.

you can download it here (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/2ixv315rhdqzx0j/AACeCcFKv1w39tZtrs56wLHDa?dl=0) if anyone else would like to use it

Just overwrite your "Interesting Portraits Pack>data>world>factions" folder with the contents of this one.

Hi!  It appears that your download RAR archive is broken/corrupted.  I've tried several times over two days.  Any chance you could refresh it?

What kind of problems are you experiencing?

 I've been using them together without any problems for few months now. Are you sure its Nexerelin?

When I start a new campaign, it lets me choose a portrait from the mod, then once the campaign starts, the game tells me I have 1 unsupported mod (Interesting Portraits Pack), and the portraits never appear in game from that point on.

I'm certain the conflict is with Nexerelin as when I deactivate only that mod the problem goes away, and when I deactivate every mod except Interesting Portraits Pack and Nexerelin the problem still occurs.

Ooh, I like this. Lots of portraits that appear to be a good fit with the existing art style.

One question though; what do I use to extract the .RAR? The first two recommendations are winZIP and WinRAR but they both want me to pay, are there any free options?

That's my go to but it didn't work, probably something to do with how its ten versions out of date :-[. I'll download 19.0 and try again.

Edit: Yep, that worked. Sorry for my stupidity!

Hey, first of all thank you very much for your portraits I can see you there's been a ton of work put into them and it's very much appreciated.

Now, I'd like to make my own edits to some of the art you used so I wanted to know if you could give a link to your gallery, give the artist's names or something like that.

Is it possible?

If you like this portrait pack you should combine it with Another Portrait Pack, they mix really well :)

It's a portrait pack you should only need to change the .json version number to the current game version and have everything work just fine.

I don't understand why the game even prevents mods from running that don't match the version number. If its gonna break just let it break.

I updated the mod_info.json and also removed some (around 15-30 i didn't count) of the portraits from appearing in game.
Mostly the ones with weird looking gasmasks and over the top hairstyles, but its a very personal thing.
The player can still choose these for his avatar, but like i said they won't appear in the game anymore.

Post by: Sandor057 on April 01, 2021, 02:25:20 PM
Confirming, that the pack works just fine with version 0.95a. You do need to change the mod_info.json file to make it work though.

To do this, go to C:\whereveryouhaveSSinstalled\Starsector\mods\Interesting Portraits Pack, there open the mod_info file, use notepad to edit it and change the gameversion value to
"gameVersion":"0.95a-RC12",

Or alternatively, just copy everything there:

{
   "id":"interestingportraitspack", # internal id
   "name":"Interesting Portraits Pack", # displayed to the player
   "version":"1.2",
   "description":"Many many portraits",
   "gameVersion":"0.95a-RC12",
}


Do not delete the quotation marks, the comma or anything else.
