Re: what mod to use to mod campaign

With the nations available, the theme of the tactical maps, and the geography of the strategic maps, scenario options are limited if you want a very high level of polish. Here are a few ideas I think are doable. - China takes over Taiwan in a surprise attack. NATO responds. (Taiwan isn't an availabl...

Re: what mod to use to mod campaign

Sounds interesting. Keep in mind that some mods are continuing to be developed, so updating may become an issue.

What level of scope and polish do you intend for whatever scenario you want to create?
What do you know the most about, historically, doctrinally, and technologically?

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

Also, I tried setting up a brand new rocket pod weapon (which was a pain, since I don't know how to make something a "top object" and thus had to copy all the values by hand) - the weapon showed up perfectly in the armory, but then got a crash to desktop when trying to load into a skirmis...

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

I used the steps you provided me for setting up a machine gun on the avenger to try and rig up dual miniguns on the scout defender (for denmark). While I've gotten the sound effects to work, the visual effects are still MIA. I thought I followed the guide exactly, but it seems I missed something. A...

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

Just had a friend (who goes by "nullAurelian", I believe you helped him with some patcher related stuff) try following the steps I posted. Not only does he receive an error message from the modding suite when uploading a DDS file without a tgv extension , but when uploading a file...

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

Thank you for that list. What tool are you using to separate the alpha channel from the texture? When I load the extracted file I can only see the alpha channel, not the actual textures (and the tool suggested by the guide I'm using has a dead link!) I primarily use Photoshop CS6, where the RGB and...

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

Oh one more thing - I'm going to see what happens if I edit the 3D texture of a unit, but I don't know which ZZ_3 file to use: a or b? Unit textures are in 3A and 3B. You'll have to open them until you find what you want. Here are my notes on texture locations. Textures (ZZ_3a and ZZ_3b) 430000210 ...

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

First - I had no idea I was supposed to be exporting with a double click instead of the export option? There's a difference? Second - I tried exporting via double click: replacing the file in the ppk with the exported file (EVEN if I didn't touch the exported file with paint.net) produced the same ...

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

Strangly, the icon was made darker. I used the ZZ_4 in 510060540\510061340. The tutorial I'm working off mentions that actually - but it says it only happens if you don't save as DXT1, which I'm assuming you did. The tutorial's old, so maybe paint.net has changed in some way? I used the same ZZ_4 f...

Re: Modding Issues and Questions

Having never replaced a unit icon, I followed what you did and it worked for me. Strangly, the icon was made darker. I used the ZZ_4 in 510060540\510061340. https://i.gyazo.com/45248fc13ee115ebbe23b6e416a7391f.png - I have a disk error when I re-extract an original file. If I first open the dds and ...
