Hey everyone... Some of you have probably seen the idea for a couple of my mods... and may have noticed a pattern.. that they never get off the drawing board (Cause and effect/Alpha and omega which was a tc turning sta2 in tos era had quite alot of support).. and whilst i have tried my best to muddle through tutorials, and i can do the things in them... i am simply following the instructions, and not really understanding them (i can useally only get the examples working)... so i think ill ask for help finally.... I have been trying to put the "three stargate ships" (its the name of the file) in game... and whilst ive put the files given in the right place, im unsure what do now now, ive added them to the shipyards... but i think i might to get a buildbutton and mess with the global_gui file... please help. (this all goes for ships in general... ive been trying to get the nova working for ages, but without an auto installer, im stuck) Thanks all XD
What ships are you trying to add, I may be able to send you my gui_global with the modifications that you need in it.
The "three stargate ships" file from fileplanet downloads consists of the daudalus, the promethus, and an asgard ship. http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Three_Stargate_Ships;58949 Is the file... however, it doesnt have a buildbutton either... how do i get this working too? (even if its jus a blank/see through square as with the atlantis build button) http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Achilles_Class_Milky_Way_Variant;66562 i would like this ingame too.. but im having the same problem, no buildbutton or wireframe (assuming wireframes are covered in the gui_global file)
Yup wireframes and buildbuttons are in gui_global, but if they don't even have them, then I think all you need to do is add them to your shipyard, and make sure that they are in the right techtree file.
Gui_global is only for the graphics, techtrees and odfs make sure the ship appears ingame.
Have you downloaded Westworlds Big Book of Modding? It has pretty much everything you need for adding units, races etc to A1 and A2 as well as teaching you how to create buildbuttons and wireframes.
Dont download the three ship's/pack, download the seperate ones.. because.. the pack has the old textures..
Wow... thanks everyone.... now that ive got this figured out... ive downloaded bout 15 ships... and got em all working ingame... along with creating 2 new races (TOS fed, and The temporal allience... which has future ships....)... as of now.. i'm planing to get permission from everyone who has submitted a stargate ship... and stick em all together with an auto-installer (not to go against the stargate project or anything... jus to make it easier for people who want to play with the ships).. also, as of now, work on Cause and affect will rebegin :).... thanks everyone
