Well since i have had NO luck with hardpoints or glows i'm going to try my hand at some scripting, now what would people *you guys* think about not only being able to choose your fleet but the enemy's fleet as well...now i dont know much but for all i care its just trial and error. and ill see what i can get, i for one Miss not being able to CHOOSE my enemy unlike in BC where u could pick who and what u fighted against, pls give any feedback u can good or bad, hell i dont even know if it is possible yet but im going to try Thanks again phoenix/Killfactor
I think it is hardcoded like other elements. Say you have a 4 fleet game the AI picks two battleships, a destroyer and a cruiser.
That's wat i thought. But i though why wouldn't it be possible to add a menu system for the bad guys. It might just be a case of change a 0 to a 1 all i can do is hope
Well/ personally I'd like to see an indepth tutorial for adding an additional skirmish/mp slot
What do you mean or payne
Well whilst I can place ships into the game fairly easily I'm still somewhat new and am not sure what files to edit to get a new side to show up in skirmish mode and then allow ships to be added to that side instead of the default 4. I mean I've got a hell of alot of ships that I could convert to the game, but no much idea currently how to get them into the game.
I forget what files I edit so apologies if I am wrong. It is also hard to explain and remember all of the menu properties that have been changed. I think I will enable a new slot in the Community Mod so people can add their own ships/race into the game easily.
You need to edit multiplayer.xml to get the button on the skirmish menu. Edit races.odf and create a .odf files for your new race.
It is important to change the slot number in your new race .odf file otherwise the button won't work. The next slot should be 4.
If you want the AI to select ships you have to include destroyer, cruiser and battleships classes.
I can send you the files I have but quite a few changes have been made.
there is a tutorial about this and a file u can download to add some in u know :D hope that helps
well i was hoping someone could develop a star drive separater and basically something of the sort for the galaxy and prometheus class
and not to be a pain but, how do you edit maps
