I didn't make it!
I just got the game installed and want to know exactly what I would have to do to mod my game. I have not installed anything to it and thus any common tools I need I need to download. Anyone got a walkthough or so I could do?
There are 2 programs that you should download from the site. BCMI and BCMP. Some mods are made for BCMI and some use BCMP. Most mods don't require either. For most of the mods, you just place the files into the appropriate folder in your Bridge Commander directory. BCMI is very straight forward. If a mod is installed using it, then all you have to do is double click on the BCMI file that came with the mod, and it automatically installs. NanoFX 2.0 (beta) is one such mod that uses BCMI. You might as well get that mod since some ships and mods require it. As for BCMP, refer to the following thread if you need a walkthrough on how to use it.
apparently a lot of ships don't need it, but some do. If it doesn't use BCMI, it may or may not need BCMP.
