first, i would like to replace an ion cannon hardpoint with a turbo laser one, all i do is copy the turbo laser stats and put it under the hardpoint where the ion cannon is, my problem is that once i enter the game the hardpoint starts destroyed, apparently there's something I'm missing, second, adding unit abilities, whenever I add the energy beam (pietts special) and the tractor beam to the Venator my game crashes (I would read to find the answer but currently i dun have the time, schools been a pain in the ass with hw lately)

You can't just edit the hard points on the unit, you have to edit the hard point in the hardpoints.xml file too.

If you post your file up here, I can take a look at it and try to figure it out for you. I understand what you're describing and it happened to me when I was making my new mod, but I don't remember how I fixed it.

The tractor beam would crash the game because there's no tractor beam hardpoint on the Venator. So it has nowhere to fire from. I think the same can be said for the proton beam, although that's a non targetable hardpoint.

All you have to do is send me the file and I'll try to fix it for you. You can send it to my email which is [email]aaron.himler@gmail.com[/email] or you can post it up here.

here it is, its the hardpoints.xml and the uniqueunits.xml (I'm trying to edit the Venator) also note that i took out the tractor beam hardpoint and ability to see if that was the only thing crashing my game, turns out its not
