Hi. I'm new around here and pretty useless at modding. But I would really like to take the blue beam the Borg assimilator uses in Armada 2 to suck crew off enemy ships, and put it onto the tactical fusion cube instead, and maybe, if possible make the beam a heck of alot more powerful along the way. I'm sure most of you could do this with your eyes closed, but I just don't have a clue. any mods, advice or help would be very much appreciated. thankyou
in the armada2 files on your harddrive you find an "odf" directory. . look up the borg assimilator file in "ships", open it with notepad and search for the name of the special weapon. copy this part, put it in the tac fusion cube odf as an additional special weapon (make sure you correct the weapon numer and the hardpoints).
then look up the special weapons name in the special weapon odf directory. same game here: open it with notepad and increase the numer of crew loss.
hope that helps.
Thankyou so much. It took a while for me to figure it all out, but I eventually got it all exactly how I wanted and it all looks and works perfectly. again, thankyou. you're a genius.
no, i am not. that is just a little odf tweaking, not really modding. if u look around on this side, you will find out, what modding really means. and that is far beyond my limits.
i was not too exact on purpose. thats how you learn fiddling around with files: if you have to think for yourself. and let me guess: you liked that you could do something with the game and you wont stop now - right? have fun:)
Now, you can be really creative. Make a copy of the auto-assimilator file and make it suck out more crew per second. Then rename it to like "filename"2.odf and put that on the fusion cube. That way your assimilator and cube will suck out DIFFERENT amounts of crew......
