Can anyone please tell me how to add a new resource to the game so that it appears in the bar with the same resources? I had a brainwave the other week and I would really like to do it! I have played about with miners, resource stations etc, but I can't find where to get it listed so that the AI will need it too etc. Is this impossible to do in Armada 2 and it has to be a new game?? Any help would be great!!
I can't tell you how to do it, but I know it is possible. Various MOD teams have had different resources. It's a matter of knowing how, which, I'm sorry to say, I simply don't know.

You wish to ADD a resource or change one, as there is a big difference.
I want to add an extra resource. I.e. To build a nebula you'll need 450 d, 100m and then 12 of the new resource. So you'll have the counter at the top of the screen telling you much much you have like the original resources. Does that explain better?? If not I'll try again. I'm getting good at making nebulas but I want a difference to mining and I'm working the bugs out to do it. It's really good fun tweaking.
You cannot add resources to the game, you can only change the existing ones. I do not remember which file must be changed though... I think it's something like "dynamic_strings" or sounds similar to that.
