hmm... sorry, I don't feel like helping right now. I'm not in the best mood. Maybe I'll help you later. It's difficult without showing the files that need to be moddified.

okay first of all, do what they said, go into their techtree and gui-global and find differences. paste those differences into your files. Then you CAN replace any sod or tga. Now dont overwrite any ODF unless its the RACES file in Other folder.

I taught myself how to mod armada 2, why can't you try a little harder. Nevermind, most people just don't learn things the way I do. It really doesn't take much to learn how to mod. It is quite simple really. Ok, I'll try to explain how to do this. First, if this is the mod I'm thinking of, change the directory that it will be installed to into a new folder in your documents folder or something similar. You will need to copy the races odf file to the file folder called "other", it will ask you if you want to overwrite it, click on "Yes". Next, you should add all the ship files to their corrext folders. After you complete that step, open gui_global from both your armada 2 directory and the new one in the folder you installed the mod into under the sprites folder as a document with something like notepad or word pad. Next, copy the build button lines from the dominion wars mod to the old gui_global file. After that, copy the wireframe lines from the new file to the old gui_global file. That should just about do it.

You may or may not be able to understand at first, but with a little experience in editting these files, you will be able to compile anything you want. If you can't figure out what I'm trying to tell you, then experience a little more modding first hand and contact me later. I'm always willing to help, unless I'm doing something important that requires concentration.
