I'm too cool to Post

Ok I tried the hardpoint editor. I open the .gf file under the Models/ShipName directory, drag a couple of new primary weapon hardpoints to the image of the ship, then save. Now when I open my SFC3 the ship still has the exact same hardpoints. How do you add new hardpoints?
SFC III Troubleshooter.

Here are the SFCIII weapon arcs. BOW (front of ship): 330_30 (F), 345_15 (narrow F), 0_60 (R) and 300_360 (L) FORE (toward front of ship): 30_90 (R) AMIDSHIP (middle or toward middle): 0_360 (can be used anywhere really) STARBOARD (right side): 60_120 PORT (left side): 240_300 AFT (toward stern or back): 90_150 (R) and 120_180 (Hard R) and 210_270 (L) 180_240 (Hard L) STERN (back): 150_210 (wide angle) and 165_195 (narrow beam) I believe the HP (hard points) can only go up to 25 count. As to the placement, I just did it by trial and error; plugging in numbers, 11, 12, 15 for example, until one was placed correctly as I liked it on the ship and then changed the ARC to what I wanted and saved the changes. You might be able to find what you are looking for by clicking here: » [COLOR=red][COLOR=red]Customizing SFC3[/COLOR][/COLOR]. The tutorial was very easy to use and helped me make changes to SFCIII as it offers a step-by-step approach. If you are using a mod program like some of these folks who actually posted ships for download, then you’ll need to refer to the tutorials or brows SFCIII homepage and/or battleclinic.com for past posts with relation to your question as I have yet to use modding-type software. Not much, but hope this helps some.
