Hi folks:cya:. Here's the questions how can I add ships that I've created to the game so they would be bulidable at command panel ?? Btw.: Where can be found some more tutorials on modding EAW ??
When you said "created" , do u mean with a new model and texture ,OR a varient of a previously existing unit? .Also is it a ground unit or a space unit?. For modding tutorials check the master sticky, eaw and more,everythingeaw and other mod related sites.
I've model and used the XML "template" of X-Wing I've just added the different name of file and name of ship, some hardpoints. And to that tutorials master sticky link to link page doesn't work:(
have you tried this link? http://forums.filefront.com/sw-eaw-modding-mapping-editing/245132-modding-tutorial.html . it has something about inserting new units . you could also just paste a copy of the units xml coding and i could look it over
yes I've looked at that, but there is no useful info (for me). But I want to ask how to create Icons for ships, such x-wing has at top left of his encyclopedia ? I've got rendered image in .tga format and i tried to add it to game but then is that picture blank ??
I dont know much about creating icons , but my guess is the dimentions arnt right , also u may have not entered the icon name correctly into the units code . I suggest you ask Keraunos281 or Plo_Koon about it because they are the two icon creaters i know of. One more thing , did you create the icon your self and did you insert it into the Mt_commandbar.tga properly ?
Icons must be created using a program that can read and write TGA based files (such as photoshop or paint shop pro). The files themselves must have an alpha based background to show the icon as having a transparent background and added to the MTD_commanderbar.tga after being resized to 50*50 pixels (unless your using a large icon).

so when i render it with white background it's okay ? and set dimensions to 50x50 then i don't have to use photoshop ? btw.: Can I use gimp ??
No idea to be honest. I use paint shop pro myself.
I'll try it too
but how to get that icon work ?? pls some kind tutorial !
