The one darth vader drives in conquest I see the part where the file shows what in its bay(Like the basic ties) but I am pretty sure it comes with 2 victorys and a cruiser(Not 100% but I recall several space battles where I have no cruisers or victorys in my fleet and they came up), but I don't see that anywhere in the file, is it in another file?

I am in the file Units_space_empire_executor is this the right file or i am in something wrong?

Also I would like to edit the button that you have to press to spawn units, and just make that either spawn a special unit or make the ship auto spawn units instead of having to press the button, is this something to hard for someone just starting out modding this game?

1. Yes your in the correct file

2. Its not hard at all, just find the Abilities coding for it and delete the "deploy" ability

example:

DEPLOY_SQUAD5 Unit_Deploy_Squad_Vader_Executor True

just delete that =]

What about say I want the deploy there but make it only deploy a certain unit, but I still want it to auto deploy the normal ties.

Got me there, i dont think its possible.

but if you want to add a unit to the spawn list just edit these lines:

TIE_Fighter_Squadron, 4TIE_Fighter_Squadron, 16TIE_Interceptor_Squadron, 6TIE_Interceptor_Squadron, 24TIE_Bomber_Squadron, 4TIE_Bomber_Squadron, 16TIE_Defender_Squadron, 2TIE_Defender_Squadron, 5

for example, if you want the executor to be accompanied by a Star Destroyer or Victory Star Destroyer just add the lines :

Star_Destroyer, 1

with "1" being the number of ships spawned

In the coding for the Death Stars, you should find a line like this TIE_Scout_Squadron, Tartan_Patrol_Cruiser, Tartan_Patrol_Cruiser, Victory_Destroyer, Victory_Destroyer this sets the escort fleet for the death star. just add this line to the executor and change the ships to anything you want. Note if you want more than 1 same type of ship, you must add the name of the ship in for each one as shown.

Ah that's good to know, I've seen that field before but wasn't sure what it did. So there is a way to force the AI to balance out its fleets.

Just use another ability like thermal detonator drop to spawn your unit.

My mistake, it was the death star spawning those units.

I put in that code but the super star destroyer didn't come with any escorts.

Odd I tried that on Home One and a custom Praetor SSD in my mod and they both generated escorting ships.

You can use Starting_Spawned_Units_Tech_0, Starting_Spawned_Units_Tech_1, Starting_Spawned_Units_Tech_2, Starting_Spawned_Units_Tech_3, Starting_Spawned_Units_Tech_4, Starting_Spawned_Units_Tech_5 to spawn whatever you want though. However like Mobius mentioned I think I've heard that it's not compatible with the Deploy ability that comes standard on the Executor.

I've seen plenty of mods that use Starting_Spawned_Units_Tech_whatever to spawn anti-fighter escorts and smaller destroyers on super capital ships/command ships though.
