Hey. I've been fighting with this for a little while. I think it should be simple but I can't find good instructions on how to do this.

What I want to do is replace all the weapons on any ship (say a Star destroyer) with mass drivers. I think it would be simple enough.

Any suggestions or even a link to a tutorial that covers this would be greatly appreciated.

One of the problems I'm having is that the tools for extracting or editing are on sites that no longer exist. So links to those tools would also be helpful. Because of this I've been editing the xml files from mods.

And if you could not understand me I'll try and rephrase the above.

I wants Jdei star destroyrs. i tryd 4 evr to make them i also want sniper wookies!!!!! HELPZ!

Don't use the XML files of other mods. Find them. I beleive the FoC XMLs were released on EaWfiles, or you could use a MEG extractor. For the Mass Driver, replace the 'firing data' in all the hardpoints of that ship with that of-lets just say the Vengance's-mass driver. By 'firing data', I mean the range code, and all the projectile code. LOL Wookie snipers? Copy the Rebel Trooper company data(Found in Groundcompaniesrebel.XML) and rename it(to something about wookies) Replace the icon data and text data with that of the wookie "squad"'s(not really a squad)found in groundcompaniesindeginous.XML, and replace the company unit "Squad_Rebel_Trooper"(or whatever they're called) with "Wookie_Sniper". Go into GroundIndigenous.XML, find the right wookie unit(Forgot exactly what the name was, just search for Wookie), copy him, rename him to "Wookie_Sniper", find his projectile lines, change them to that of the Infilitrator. (Found in Groundinfantry.XML) Next(I forgot something) go back to your squad data, change the max squad size to one, and remove the text in the container line. *phew* Wookie snipers buildable from the barracks. If that looked like greek, either A. You suck at modding. or B. I suck at writing tutorials. (HINT:It's probably B)

Thanks for the info and links.

The Wookie snipers was a joke. Looking through the forums I saw a lot of posts that were written by 5 year olds. Sorry you made the big write up.
