Tutorial:Create a new Division

Postby novin997 » Sun 28 May 2017 17:49

In this tutorial, I will be duplicating a new 3rd US Armoured division

1. There will be 4 files that we need to edit and they are located at "Mods\MyMod\GameData\Gameplay\Decks"

-Copy the entire "export Descriptor_Deck_3rd_US_Armored is TDeckDescriptor" and paste it below.
Rename it as "export Descriptor_Deck_2nd_US_Armored is TDeckDescriptor"
Change the "DeckDivision = ~/Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_2nd_Armored_MULTI"
(It used for the autofill function for the deck)

-Duplicate the entire "export Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_3rd_Armored is TDeckDivisionDescriptor" and "export Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_3rd_Armored_MULTI is TDeckDivisionDescriptor"
-Remember to rename to "export Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_2nd_Armored is TDeckDivisionDescriptor" and "export Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_2nd_Armored_MULTI is TDeckDivisionDescriptor"

-add "~/Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_2nd_Armored_MULTI," into the DivisionList= .......

-add "(Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_2nd_Armored_MULTI, 43),"
"(Descriptor_Deck_Division_US_2nd_Armored, 44),"
into the DivisionIDs=MAP parenthesis

Lastly, place those 4 files into your base.zip and run the UpdateMod.Bat
;) Cheers

Nice tuto, but you shouldn't modify base.zip as it's used to update your mod. If you change it, you will get conflicts on every changes you have made every time you will update your script.

Either I'm doing something wrong or this simply doesn't work anymore.

Followed this tutorial to become familiar with the system and found nothing new in the battlegroup section of the menu. The main PDF manual for modding is no longer up to date as there are now different steps used to make a new mod in the first place. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank your for you time and help.
