hi, i'd like to know how to use units from one race in another for example, using tau battlesuits in say the imperial guard if someone could tell me it would be much appreciated:nodding: preferably a guide using Corsixs mod studio if possible thanks
just what i wanted to know as i want a chaos imperial guard army with daemons etc
Hi i have never tryed to do that but i think it can be done if it works ur added units will probally not be the same colur as ur race its color will just be the same as one of the races it came from if it works.(because the art files just have the colors of ur added units race) corsix mod studio Heres how i would do it(remember it might not work) 1)open the attributes folder 2)open the ebps folder 3)open the races folder 4)select a race 5)open the structures folder 6)pick a building 7)pick the spawner_ext 8)pick squad_table(u will notice their is a list of squad numbers and names of the squad that this building produces) 9)type in the unit in the same way as the other units for reference u can open up the sbps file on the added unit(remember its got lua at the end of it not rgd) 10)then save it thats it it sounds like a lot but when u have opened the mod studio it doesrnt look as hard as what i have just said.It might all look complicated but all the files and info are there just takes time to learn. One more important thing if u just have corsix mod studio u will notice it just rgd files but still put lua where needed at the end of things like the thing i just said at the top.If u have the studio and relics tools u will notice there is rgd files and luas just remember to right click the rgd or lua file u have changed and convert that file to a lua or rgd whatever one of the 2 u never changed this will copy that files changes to the other file good luck with modding i will try in the future to explain more on it so people can do the basics and maby then try the harder stuff.
Sorry another thing some units will have to have addons or relics ect...to be made so......... check to see if it needs for example crisis suits need a structure to be built this is done by 1)open the ebps file or sbps file 2)find the unit file 3)go to requirments open it (it will be in one of the 2 unit files ebps/sbps) 4)delete the information in the requirments(for example crisis suits need structure) 5)and the rest of the unneeded stuff for that unit copy the information on 1 of the blank requirements. Thats it its so when u add on that unit to anouther race if it works it wont need the building ect.. to build it when it being used by anouther race.
Also, be sure to copy the instances of the r ace over including textures. You'll get a color bleed otherwise.
thanks for the advice but unfortunately it didn't seem to work ah well nevermind
