HELP! I've downloaded and installed the dom wars mod followed all the instructions patch reinstall etc. And it runs ok but I need to know how to create the ship loadouts coz whenever I try and refit the ships on the menu I save then accept but whenever I go into the game the ship is literally empty. No engines, no weapons, no tractors, no transporters !!! :mad: :mad: :mad: Please help guys!
Well, which version are you running. If it is the latest version, Version 4.7, that is only a beta testing version, ment for skirmish. Here's a way to get your ship loadouts into Campaign mode: Open your CustomLoadout.txt (found within (YourGameDirectory)\Assets\Specs folder) Use Wordpad or a Spreadsheet. next, open the DefaultLoadOut.txt file( found in same folder) with the same program. Copy the loadouts from customloadout right over thier corresponding lines in defaultloadout. Next, highlight where it says "Custom" and delete it. i.e. Federation Fed-Cruiser Akira Akira Custom F-TRACTOR V:1:F-ARMOR V:2:R-TRANSPORTER 3:3:K-COMPUTER V:1:PHASER XI:1:PHASER XI:2:PHASER XI:3:PHASER:XI:4:PHASER XI:5:QUANTUM TORPEDO:13:k-PHJOTON TORPEDO:14
Federation Fed-Cruiser Akira Akira F-TRACTOR V:1:F-ARMOR V:2:R-TRANSPORTER 3:3:K-COMPUTER V:1:PHASER XI:1:PHASER XI:2:PHASER XI:3:PHASER:XI:4:PHASER XI:5:QUANTUM TORPEDO:13:k-PHJOTON TORPEDO:14
NOTE: DO NOT USE THE LINEs ABOVE, IT IS An EXAMPLE ONLY AND WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY NOT WORK. DO NOT POST BACK TO TELL ME THAT MY LOADOUT DOES NOT WORK, I ALREADY TOLD YOU WHY. DO NOT RISK CRASHING YOUR GAME!
well most likly it needs one of the old patches i am still triyng to track even one of them down!
Do NOT use the beta version if you still want to play the SP game at all, use the preceding one before that one (Dominion Wars 4.6 I believe). That version has a dominion_wars.bat file which will set all the ship loadouts as they should be. It is what I use and it's fantastic, and untill the beta version gets officialy compleated (which will be around x-mas I believe) I will not use it at all.
Hope this helps.......... :)
