[COLOR="Red"]For some strange reason, I cannot seem to get the game to realize that the mod is in. Whenever I install the MOD, the shipyard doesn't have the build button for the ship (I don't mean it's a blank spot with no picture but there is no spot for the button at all). I've gotten other MODs to work before and I followed what the directions said but I still can't seem to get it to read.[/COLOR]
Have you added the ship to the starbase using the odfs yet? If that's not it, maybe it could be the techtree. I'm not sure. I'm new to modding but that usually solves it. Anyways, what ship are you trying to add in?
Techtree has the proper information and in the shipyard it's also listed. And I'm trying to install Pepperman's Romulan S'Faret class.
I'm guessing the .SOD file is already in the correct place and I'm guessing the ODF is also named exactly as the .SOD file. It should be working properly with these two files when you've added it to the techtree and the odf. Maybe just adjust it to build in the main base along with the construction ships to see if it builds there first before moving it elsewhere.
I even compared the ryard.odf and the sfaret.odf files to another MOD that I know to work and I see no differences. For all intents and purposes, it SHOULD be working.
Exactly. I see no reason why it shouldn't work. We're gonna need a major modder here to see why it's not working.

Please post the added lines from your shipyard file, the gui global sprite file, etc and I take a lookie. I assume you put all of the filesinto the correct places.
Under ryard.odf I put: buildItem7 = "rsfaret" In the fulltech.tt I put: rsfaret.odf 0 In tech1.tt I put: rsfaret.odf 0 //warbird (sfaret class) For the build button I put: b_rsfaret gbrsfaret 0 0 64 64 For the wireframe I put: rsfaretw1 rsfaretwf 0 0 48 48 rsfaretw2 rsfaretwf 48 0 48 48 rsfaretw3 rsfaretwf 96 0 48 48 rsfaretw4 rsfaretwf 144 0 48 48 rsfaretw5 rsfaretwf 192 0 48 48 And for the weapons I put: # Romulan Disruptor for Romulan S’Faret Class Warbird romulandisruptor wvalpulse1 0 65 256 130
# Romulan Photon Torpedeo for the Romulan S’Faret Class Warbird romulanphoton wrtorp1 0 0 85 85 @anim=tex3x3
I reinstalled it, this time without the dynamic_localized_string.h info and it now works.
Oh... Yeah, I've had the same thing happen for some other mods out there that may replace some of your main files. Didn't think about that. I guess it's best just to do it yourself.
