Hey guys I was wondering what files I need to edit in order to change the starting ships in the missions, and in the pre mission movies. Ive got a few ships that I don't use anymore, I.E. the Intrepid class and the Aegean class. and i would like to replace them with the ships that i do actually use I.E. the Miranda Class and the Excelsior class. thanks guys.
Map editor you can normal find it on your armada 2 cd under setup/editor copy and paste to your a2 direcory then press ctrl+A when in game and then exit to you menu click load game and load the misson you wont then just place the ship you wont and delete the one you dont if you are changing hero ships/stations such as the USS Enterprise you must give that class lable to another ship/station or as soon as you play the misson you will fail with The Enterpise has been destoyed or something like that you may have to edit ef_comba.odf in the other folder to add the new ship odf file names but some missons like misson one the ships move from one place to another so to replace say the Galaxy classin misson one and replace it with an Excelsior class you would have to copy the Excelsior class sod and odf and rename them fgalaxy.odf/sod so the game loads the new ship but it still moves to the correct place in the intro movie and when you star the game I hope this makes sence
yeah dude that makes sense. Thanks. now i just have to figure out hwo to use the damn map eidtor and ill be all set.
Basicly press the F1 F2 F3 and so on of the catgory you wont like F1 for federation then F1 for combat ships then what ship you want and it will apear on the map where you mouse pointer is, to edit what ships can be selected from the menu open ef_comba.odf in the odf/other folder it sould look like this menuTitle = "Federation Combat Ships" item1 = "fbattle" item2 = "fgalaxy" item3 = "fcruise1" item4 = "fcruise2" item5 = "fcruise3" item6 = "fdestroy" item7 = "fdestroy2" item8 = "ffrigate" item9 = "fspecial" item10 = "fassault" item11 = "fscout" so say you whanted to have an Miranda class insteed of the assault ship and the Miranda odf was fmiranda.odf then change fassault to fmiranda then there when you start map editor insted of the Assult ship the should be the Miranda class at F10
