Hello i need help with making heroes that only go in space as transport how can i make them fight in there own ships. and how can i change foc heroes that have there own xml files to new ships and give the one's that don't there own ship all the ships that i'm using are already in the game i'm not adding anything
Here is a list of everything that I’m changing Empire Emperor – Eclipse SSD Darth Vader – Eclipse SSD Grand Moff Tarkin –Moff Falesk SD Grand Admiral Thrawn – Executer SD Alliance Mon Mothma – Admonitor SD Captain Antilles – Venator Cruiser Garm Bel Iblis - Admonitor SD Underworld All Zann heroes - The_Peacebringer
This part is in the hero company thread. Look for the XML section about that hero_team and look in there. For example, taken from Tyber's XML under Tyber_Zann_Team: DUMMY_GROUND_COMPANY The_Peacebringer Tyber_Zann Yes Yes yes true All you have to do is change the Company_Transport_Unit line and your hero of choice will fly around in that unit and participate in space battles in GC using that unit.
i made all the zann heroes the peacebringer and when i did that all the heroes became Tyber Zann do you know how to fix it. and how do i change old units that don't have that xml string
Maybe you could use the Variant of Existing Type string to make identical copies of Peacebringer that simply have different XML names? That could work.... Also, the old units do have that XML string, it's just that Petro had the XMLs organized a bit differently for the old heroes. All hero company data for the old heroes will be in HEROCOMPANIES.xml.
To fix all Hero's being tyber, use these lines:
The_Peacebringer TEXT_TOOLTIP_SILRI TEXT_ENCYCLOPEDIA_CLASS_NIGHTSISTER i_button_ui_silri.tga
This is the example for Silri. Got it now?
is there a way you can post the entire xml file with that string in it for any foc hero to download? if so please do it so i have a better understanding of doing this. oh and sith of steel changeing transport locked up the game when i started a galactic game
first off, don't bother me for disregarding some of the later posts with what i'm going to say. now, to work. to create a new unit entirely, you would either have to (A) create a new model, quite a bit harder than (B) simply editing xml files. assuming you're going to go with B, the first step is to find all of the data you wish to use. looking at your examples, notice that a number of proposed units do not already exist. for these, you will have to create a model, or find a mod with those models and edit that for your own personal use. to do this and create a public mod, you would be advised to ask the creator or creators (in a group mod) for permission to use the models and skins. changing the units to an already-existing model is simple. as an example, find UNITS_HERO_UNDERWORLD_URAI_FEN. you will see the info displayed. scroll down to . first, set this to no. scroll down to the bottom. create
what about the old eaw heroes still can't make them different ships or give them ships like a normal SD or a normal Mon Cal how can i make a copy of a heroes ship i need to add a new Home One for the rebel Captain that uses the corvette
and i can't get the xml right a pop up shows up and tells me xml parse error-file .\Data\XML\Units_Hero_Underworld_Urai_fen.xml: file has syntax error, see log file
