Does the game limit you to the four basic icons for friendly and enemy aircraft and ground units or can a specific unit (e.g. 1st Tank Brigade) have its own icon assigned? I made some icons for Dhimar and Paran with the basic names and included them below. Should you wish to use them just copy them to your mod folder /Menu folder and overwrite if asked.

Added Dhimar and Paran to icon description

From what little I know it's limited to those generic icons. Nobody has modded (AFAIK anyway) the icons so it may or may not be possible.

It is possible. There are some mods by Capitaine Vengeur introducing national counters on the planning maps, and I've done it as well for all countries portrayed in the ODS 30AE total conversion modification. It involves some .ini editing, and of course lots of patience in creating dozens of different textures. 

It's not possible to have them for specific units (unless you want to use unrelated nations in campaigns to pose as placeholders for units), but for specific nations it's doable. It's basically done in TW's First Eagles 2, what we did in ODS 30AE is just an example of using FE2's features in Strike Fighters.

That's not what I said. Please use the search bar available on this site, use "national counters" as key words and you'll find the mods I mentioned made by Capitaine Vengeur. It's not just a matter of having textures in different names, you also need to tweak some .ini files.

      Hello. I have just reinstalled the SF2 and put all addons I have already used. It is all working. However, after I downloaded new terrains (Iraq03 and Libya), my SF2 cannot recognize these maps in Mission Map sections. However, other maps I have used before work. What is the solution, please?

      Tired of those ugly green stock icons? Well you can replace them with these...
      Forgot to mention, one icon (ODS) is from the ODS Pack...

      This terrain is written for SF2NA
      I. Short description:
      The terrain covers the open Atlantic Ocean south of Iceland. It is a mod of the Open Ocean Carrier Battle
      Map terrain.
      It is made for slower computers, thatswhy it use no LOD based terrain, but the old HFD.
      Changes to previous version:
      - starting positions of the carriers are variable now
      - 2 more recon points
      - changed the sides on the map. Soviets starts west, NATO starts east (to simulate a carrier duell NW of Scottland)
      Unzip all files into your Wings StrikeFighters2 /terrain folder.
      Thats it.
      III. Credits. I want to say thank you to JonathanRL who made the original Open Ocean Carrier Battle

      View File WOFF Westen Front Airfield Maps
      This is the second version of my airfield mapping for Wings: Over Flanders Fields. Credit goes to Rabu for his Flanders map that he has allowed me to use to map airfields on. The Paris map was created entirely by myself. The others were public domain and the airfield data came from WOFF itself. Please do not repost or change and distribute without crediting rabu and myself.

      View File Lothar Maps
      This mod offers several alternative in-game maps for Over Flanders Fields based on modern Google imaging:
      Lothar Google Map – Google’s Terrain map illustrating basic topography with modern cities and roads, much of which hasn’t changed from a map-eye view over the past century. While there’s a hint of the underlying topography, this is generally best for flying by human landmarks.
      Lothar Google Earth – Google Earth satellite imagery was a long way from even hypothetical during the Great War, so this mod applies diffusion and texture filters for a slight painted canvas map effect. Important locations are marked as on the stock OFF map, but overall this is best for just flying by terrain.
      Lothar Google Mix – This simply overlays the two above maps with transparency. Things may not line up exactly, especially at the extremes of the map, but overall this provides a subtler view of the road and city detail of the Google Map with more of the geographical richness of the satellite view.
      In any case, the result is vastly more detailed, accurate, and useful than the stock OFF map, despite the occasional anachronism. Try them all to see which you prefer on utilitarian and aesthetic merits. And have fun exploring with fresh eyes the amazing terrain Over Flanders Fields and beyond!
      Over Flanders Fields
      JoneSoft Generic Mod Enabler 2.6.0:
      Installation and Usage:
      The installer automatically extracts the mod folders into your OFF JSGME mods folder if OFF and JSGME are installed correctly. JSGME will be run when installation is complete, just activate the ‘Lothar Google Map’ or ‘Lothar Google Earth’ or ‘Lothar Google Mix’ folder to enable the mod. It only makes sense to activate one of the map mods at a time, but you can easily switch between them with JSGME.
      Notes: The front no longer displays in the Briefing Room, but does so (and more accurately) on the in-flight map.
