ok ive made a fereng miner for the 4 main races, its just the scavenger with some things changed in it. for each race that get it, i gave it 3 of their cruser phasers. eg: the klingon one would fire 3 that were coppied from the vor cha, i also gave them a photon from .... i think the friget of what ever race gets to make it. but i have one small problem, i dont have a build or a ship icon for it, if it was damaged you would not see any thing because there is no pic. so could some one tell me where or what i would have to coppy to make one for each of my ships.
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

There won't be a build icon for it, but there definitely is a ship icon (I presume you're referring to the wireframe). If it's for personal use, it's likely the Ferrengi race mod has a build button that may be suitable for use. You could download that (and play it, because Ferrengi hording is fun) and then steal the build button. Hope that helps. EDIT: This be the mod I was referring to :)
Have you tried searching for tutorials? There is a very nice tutorial on how to create wireframes. The build button is easier to make though. Just get a picture of a scavenger, delete the background, shrink the picture, and add it onto a blank build button.
well because i already know that the ship is in the game i was just looking to see if one already existed. could i use the ship icon as the build button or .... what? im just trying to find simple and easy ways to do some things is all, that would mean less work and who knows .... it could mean so for alot of us in the long run ..... after a while :D
The wireframe is already in game, so you just have to search check the gui_global.spr file for the entry, as for the the the buildbutton, download the BBOM, in it is a template for a buildbutton, just cut out a screenshot or render of the ship and put it on the build button, that's perhaps some of the easiest graphic word you can do in modding.
ok .... how do you take a screenshot and where does it end up because ive tried to do one b4 but could not find it so ..... how and where if you plz :D
i just want to make sure that im doing it right, ive hit both shift S and C to try and take a screan shot but have not worked (i guess) so did i do it wrong?
yes i made a coppy of that ship and turned it into a miner for the feds,cards,roms and klingons, each race gave their own version weapons. my version holds .... was it 550 or 750 dilith and then 500 lat per haul ..... meh but ya thats the ship what file is for what?
the zip file contain the build button and an tga image of the ship for your use
