can someone tell me how to add fleet comanders to their own ships and which vessel would you recommend?
i believe that you go to the unit model line and make it what you want
i think it's the special transport line
Its in HeroCompanies.xml
That doesnt work for me though cause if add a captialship to that line it crashes the game when I build a commander. Even if I change the line in the genricherounits where the commander is attaches to a flagship during battle. By default its set to 'yes' even so changing it to no still makes no difference.
In the next line in companyunits after genricfleet commander if you add a capital ship that works but the commander is not attached to the ship and flys around in a shuttle instead.
Ok I figured it out forget what I posted before :)
You need to add the line NAME_OF_UNIQUE_UNIT_HERE to the genricherounits xml file and switch the Attach to Flagship to 'No' in the UniqueUnits xml file add the ship type you want to use for your fleet commanders
I did it like this : -
MON_CAL_MC80AA_Wing_Squadron, 1Y-Wing_Squadron, 1A_Wing_Squadron, 1Y-Wing_Squadron, 1599 MC_HP_HomeOne_Shield_Generator, MC_HP_HomeOne_Engines, MC_HP_HomeOne_TBL_BL, MC_HP_HomeOne_TBL_BR, MC_HP_HomeOne_TBL_FL, MC_HP_HomeOne_TBL_FR, MC_HP_HomeOne_IC_BL, MC_HP_HomeOne_IC_BR, MC_HP_HomeOne_IC_FL, MC_HP_HomeOne_IC_FR, MC_HP_HomeOne_Fighter_Bay 4
The ship is a variation of a capitalship I have and is reference in the genricherounits.xml file
Doing it the other way wont work just crashes the game.
