Hi i just got the game and i was wondering what files i have to edit to let me have downloaded ships and how i would go abut doing that....
Any help please?
There are two files in Assets/Specs that you will need to edit every time you download a new ship. They are called DefaultCore and DefaultLoadOut. There is also a CustomLoadOut and I do not know if you need to change that at all or not. I do not download ships but I make them and I have never opened CustomLoadOut yet.
how do i change these files?
what do i add to them
As I said I have never downloaded anything from here other than modeling tools. But I think I can still help you. In the ship downloads there is hopefully a readme in the download (if not I can't help you). In the readme there should be a couple lines of writing that look kind of wierd. Here is an example:
10 CL 1000 0 2000 4750 1150 3400 10000 Fed-LightCruiser2 Defiant PrimaryHP:1:300_360:2:0_60:3:330_30 HeavyHP:12:330_30:13:330_30:14:330_30:15:330_30 HullHP:1:2:3 BridgeHP:1:2 ship Mines:3:12:3 Marines:6:12:6 Shuttles:1:2:1
If it looks like this, it goes in DefaultCore.
Federation Fed-LightCruiser2 Defiant Defiant F-TRACTOR-II:3 F-TRANSPORTER-II:1 F-ARMOR-I:2 F-COMPUTER-II:1 F-WARP-IV:1 F-IMPULSE-II:2 F-THRUSTER-II:3 PHASER XS:1 PHASER XS:2 PHOTON TORPEDO:12 PHOTON TORPEDO:13 OFFICER:ENGINEER: OFFICER:SECURITY: OFFICER:HELM: OFFICER:OPS: OFFICER:TACTICAL: OFFICER:MEDICAL: F-SHIELD-III:1 F-SHIELD-III:2 F-SHIELD-III:4 F-SHIELD-III:3
if it looks like this, it gos to DefaultLoadOut.
They will probably not look exactly like that. But very close. Only some different words and numbers.
At this point if you have all the other files in the right places, your new ship should work.
I hope i have been helpful. Post back if I have not helped and I'll see what I can do.
