OMG... i just tested this f***en nice Avenger in TA and it is exactly how i expected it to be (the "top" hull seemed a bit flattened though, but that's quite alright).Now, would it be possible to make it DA compatible, also?And find a way to make these available to all races at once as either a "general" template or fixed asset without the S0_UD.. tricky schema? (Although, i can't remember where i read in the forums here about a solution to this sort of process - maybe you'd know!)And keep going with the other remaining two... Retaliator & Barracuda?Pwwweeze, plwease!?!
Making them available for each race is easy. Here is how you do it.
For example I have my Romulan Z-1 Nova Battleship.
The xml file is: Z-1Nova.xml
the cfg file is: S8_UD_Z-1Nova1.shipcfg
Currently with this set up if you played as the Thalans the ship would appear because of the prefix: S8.
Now if you made two copies of that file and renamed the prefix to S0 and S1 then the Terrans, Drengin, and Thalans would have that ship. It would look like:
You don't need another .xml file because the different .shipcfg files will use the same one.
When I'm done with the Romulan ships my shipcfg file will look like:
To make it DA compatible I'd have to rebuild it from scratch. For some reason some of the parts are different sizes between the two expansions so it doesn't work as well as it should.
I wouldn't mind working on a few more but I need to finish up some other ones first.
Some of those ships are hard but I'll try.
This is very cool - a grateful public thanks you - Jonnan
Love to hear people enjoying this.
Feel free to anyone to offer ideas.
I'm avoiding 24th Century vessels at this time. Lots of you guys want me to try my hand at them and I will but I have a lot to still do right now.
