sorry for bringing this up but i'm currently learning to edit the xml files via wordpad/notepad
currently i know how to resize the size of fighters, ships etc. and edit the damage points, health, shield points etc...
but could someone teach me how i could edit the files to enable me to have instant build and instant refresh rates of abilities (lucky shot etc.) ?
apart from that, it would be cool if i could learn how to unlock the venator cruiser (with red stripes, not the dull grey one) and enable capital ships like home one and those venators to churn out fighters which would be awesome.
i'm mainly focusing skirmish space battles so any help would be greatly appreciated. modding mentor needed!
Hmm. I suggest to have a look at other mods to know what to do. At the biginning I used a program to confront the different files such as winmaerge (it's free) and have a look at what and they were modified.Start this way and if you need any help don't hesitate to post.
here is one tutorial http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=245132
thanks but i've already tried that tutorial... doesn't help when it comes to my aforementioned requests on wanting to edit the game to my own pleasure.
Instant build.. search for this line
Change the 60 to 1... or 0 ot whatever you want. Remember it may not be 60 for all units..so it may better to just search
Search for this line
Change to 1 or 0... Remember it may not be 90 for all units..so it may better to just search
thanks but u know it's kinda funny that some abilities don't state the recharge timer... for example the lucky shot, it doesn't have the recharge timer anywhere!
i know sometimes ur lookin for an xml line it aint there
