I'm computer stupid. Is there any way to rewrite the paragraph that comes up when you mouse over a vehicle or ship. If so, how? Do you need a separate program? Thanks for any help....

You need a DATEditor, which you can get here: http://www.renevo.com/downloads/eaw/DATEditor.zip Then you have to change a line in the xml of your unit, it should be: TEXT_TOOLTIP_(unit name here) -- this is the paragraph that comes up. To change what it says then open the DATEditor and find this file: MasterTextFile_ENGLISH, then open it. Find the line you want to change. Lets use the Stormtroopers for example. Go through all the lines until it says: TEXT_TOOLTIP_STORMTROOPER. Double click on it, then type in whatever you want in the lower section of the box that comes up. To change the name of the unit then look for TEXT_UNIT_STORMTROOPER And, again, double click it and type anything you want in the lower box. I hope all this helps you out, cuz if it didn't then I just did all this for nothing. But god luck and happy modding. :)

?? what does that mean exactly ?? oh yeah and. if u want to rename a ship it only renames it when you hover over it with the cursor, not from the slot in the spacestation build tab and not when you click on the unit and hover over the icon....

I think I know what do you mean. The names are in TYT files in your DATA folder. Search for a file CONTAINING that filename. From that point I think you'll be able to do it. I think that file is the Gameconstants.xml or something like that, but I'm not sure.
