Description
Flags of Victory is a simple mod that aims to add more post-victory atmosphere to the civil war. After having won the Civil War, neither the Empire nor the Stormcloaks did much to celebrate their victory. Being somewhat disappointed at the outcome i decided to sit down and change that. For starters i've added a system of banners which will appear in the major cities depending on which side won the civil war.

For instance: If the player chose to help the Empire in the civil war, there will be Imperial banners in the "liberated" towns. The presence of banners will depend on the towns former loyality. When the Empire takes Windhelm there will be a large propaganda campaign and the Empire will fly their banners to symbolize the "liberation" of Windhelm and the defeat of Ulfric Stormcloak. Likewise if the Stormcloaks manages to kick out the Empire of Skyrim they will celebrate across most towns loyal to the Stormcloaks and promote celebrations in the former Empire loyal settlements.

Ultimately i aim towards making the endgame of the civil war feel more immersive and dynamic by adding small features and hopefully some events in the future. For now i'll focus on adding the "Victory Banners" to all cities, for both sides of the conflict.

Changelog:

- Reworked several road-banners to look more casual

Ok, I understand. I kow it's a time consuming process building these.

Afraid not. I simply don't have the time at the moment :)

Has this mod been updated yet. I really would like to add the victory banners to my recaptured cities.

No problem! :) Sorry for the inconvenience however! :)

oh, well that explains it. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

I'm fairly certain that the mod is outdated. I haven't worked on this since before Dawnguard

having problems. The only flags that appear are the gray mane house flags. every other flag doesnt appear. Also, the battle borns have an imperial flag even though the stormcloaks won the war.

If you're still working on this, why not have a statue (but not a shrine) of Ysgramor? It would be lore-friendly as he was the first harbinger and Jorrvaskr is literally a stone's throw from the shrine/tatue to Talos.

Dibella was a temporary replacement for Talos ;) I couldn't find any statue of Akatosh in the game so I worked with what I had :)
