I've played BC for a long while now. I want to make my own ships like all the other cool guys on BCFiles.com. Can someone give me some basic pointers or a little direction on how to get started? Thanks very much!
To make your own ship from scratch, you need a few things: 1.) A modelling program like Milkshape or 3dMax that can create the model. 2.) A good photo editting program like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro 6 or something for adjusting your textures properly. 3.) The Bridge Commander SDK as it has the Model Property Editor used for creating hardpoints.
That'll get you started. Now, you need to come up with a basic design and start to model it.
Thanks! That's exactly the answer I needed!
