Sounds like you need edit the techtree's & gui_global.

I assume both mod's you are putting in have them so when you install 1 you are overwriting the info on the other!!

See the tutorial on installing ships on this forum. :D

It is hard for first time modders or people that just install mods to understand this at first. Like what Porty said, the techtree & gui_globel always have to be editted not replaced when mixing Mods or ships. Sometimes but not to often they may even share odf,sod or tga files. My personal advice if anyone wants to mix mods or ships. You should understand how each files works. So you can mix them correctly. Anytime you are adding a 2nd ship or mod and it asks you to overwrite a file...you may be loosing things.

prob is that a lot of people came to this game from playing the likes of Red Alert, where all the construction coding was included in the actual model hence nothing overwrote anything unless it was programmed to.

that is true..... u just need to copy one in, then add the data also, all avm mods have an auto installer ;) (as in no overwriting)
