For you texture modders:
Why is there a W:AB version and the W:RD version of the same texture? What exactly do you change? Is it a file format difference?

No there is not. There is 2 version of the INSTALLER since Vasto's wonderful installer search where the game is installed. That's all.

How do you make MRLS systems fire cluster ammunition, like the West German M270?

Unanswered Questions: How do you change infantry spacing?

Postby Lindwurm » Thu 17 Apr 2014 11:32

It's : -->everithingndf.bin-->TUniteBehaviourDescriptor-->SotdatsDistanceMin

But I still don't know what parameter is used for triangular/linear formation of infantry squad members :(

How do I change a units weapons in ALB? Say if I wanted to give US Marines M16s Dragon IIs and M240s, how would I change that in ALB?

And also does anyone know how to change the weapons on the actual pylons of the aircraft?
Britain doesn't need better SEAD - it has the Challenger 2 for that.

It's a bit late for me to explain things, but in the case of aircraft weapon models I made a post a while ago on the ALB modding forums

Not as simple as you think. I would just find the US MLRS, go modules, write down the id number of WeaponManager, than put that in the German MLRS (Doesn't it already have clus?)

Probably not possible from what we have.

Weapons manager in modules. If you want to do it from scratch, look here: https://docs.google.com/a/student.dist1 ... 2iak/edit#

EDIT: Oh wait, look at this. Just a couple of pages back...

Does anyone know how to mod solo campaign's battlegroups ?
WALB's way with TWargameNationDeck seems obsolete :cry:
And what about modding campaigns at all ?
