Hi! new modder SF5091 here. I was up late last night trying to figure out how to change the registry of a ship. Example: If you wanted to change the registry of the USS VICTORY to USS ENTERPRISE F, how would you do that? Also, about the number registrys, can't figure those out either. Somebodys got to help me! :deal: Or all my ships names wil be :talker: :talker: :talker:

First you'll need a program that can edit TGA files, like Paint Shop Pro or the TGA Editor available on BCFiles.

Then, open data/Models/Ships/(ShipName)/High in your BC directory and look through the TGA files. Some ships have different file names for the registries, but you should be able to find it pretty quickly. Then edit the same file in the Low and Med folders.

There are no textures in a nif. A nif is a 3d model, not a texture file.

Oh, and this should go in the Modding & Editing forum, not Tech Support.

The C2 Galaxy texture files are locked into Nifs, you can't edit them.

Oh ok... I should have read your question more carefully. Sorry.

Well I guess you can't unless you have 3dsmax.
