Mod Help Thread

This is a shameless ripoff of Ech's Scenario Design Help Thread, except it's for modpacks.

Ask all mod related questions here. If you are experiencing a problem with any of the mod tools, post it here. If you have any questions about modding, post 'em here.

Before asking "How do I mod?", please visit the Modpacks page.


IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE MOD INSTALLER, please state which version you are using. This will make it easier to troubleshoot the problem.

IF YOU ARE REPORTING AN ERROR, please state more than just the error number. Please post the error number, the error description, and the steps you took to produce said error.

Okay i’m making a mod and i want to do some things:

-

1)Separate repeater trooper from heavy trooper. So when you research repeater trooper you can buy both, the repeater and the heavy trooper.

2)Eliminate the damage bonus what mechs received when you research primary focusing coils, coling sleeves and advanced power pack. Also give that damage bonus to bounty hunters.

3)Give bonus damage and defense to aircrafts when you research Elevation tracking, external sensor pod, targeting sensor, light plating, medium plating and hvy plating.

4)Remove armored platework for civilizations who already have shield modifications and allow it for civilization without shields for aircrafts.

-

If someone want write me a patch i will give him credit if someday i release that little mod im making.


Thanks you guys for help and excuse me for my poor english.
This is probably why you were never replied to, TruePaladin, mod requests are against the rules here even if you give credit. But yes, search under Sidious Invader and you'll find what you need to make it.

1. Don't ask for mods.
Reasons why some people ask, and retorts to those questions:

a. Not worth anyone’s time
No one wants to do mods for you, especially if they're ridiculous and unneeded.

b. Repetitive questions, repetitive answers
The forum is literally bashed by dozens of these threads, and they always turn up being unanswered, so asking would be a waste of time.

c. Take the time and learn it yourself
Learn to do them yourself. There are plenty of tutorials out there. And if you want to know HOW to do them not IF SOMEONE WANTS TO MAKE THEM FOR YOU, then someone will be glad to help out.

d. I want a unit for a campaign
"Specialized campaign units"- Boy, these have been around for ever, if you want a unit "just for your campaign", sorry, tough luck. It's not worth anyone's time.

e. Mods are no simple task
Mods are extremely difficult to construct. Yes, even with poser, these guys take forever. People have to tackle transparencies, shadows, player colors, icons, it's all really a mess just for a single unit.

f. Post in the threads that ask you to ask
If someone offers, ask him or her. No one's not telling you to. In fact the thread encourages you to.

Thanks for clearing that up. I must say at first I was thinking "what? joking, right?", but what you're saying makes sense. I totally understand why people would get frustrated with greenhorns like me clogging up the forums.

Cheers mate!

Back in the day there were a handful of modders who took requests--I know that Brownboot did from time to time, for example--but now that there are about four of us...Yeah, we're kind of focused on our own projects.

Brownboot, hell... I remember Izzy.

And he was the one that came up with the rule when people started to think having him make a mod was a God-given right, not a gift.

It was not my intention to request a mod. What i want is learn to edit technologies and tech trees but i can't recognize any techage on genied because there is a not a single clue about what tech are you editing. They are all called TECH-AGE1 so if want edit for example ''primary focusing coils'' i simply can not find the right techage.
Anyone can help?

That's a request, unfortunately. But I'm sure SERRIA WOLF can help you out in teaching you if he takes a look in here.

Or maybe... your face!

But yeah, Sierra will be able to help... let's just hope he takes notice of this particular thread. And, Paladin, before you think of it... don't make a thread directly calling to him. That's also against the rules... the big ones, not just the courtesy ones.

I guess I could make them myself. I could use the extra practice.

Just call me Rossk.

TruePaladin, I'm sorry but I can't actually help with that. I'm not familiar with the research and techage files. Sarthos definitely can help you though. It seems he doesn't check this thread so I would recommend making a new topic entitled "Need some genie help" or something along those lines, and ask how you do all those things you were asking about. He'll help you for sure.

There is no flawless way to do that as far as we know, but there is one trick that somewhat works.

What you do is change all of the id values of your unit to that of Simon, which is 1204. So lets say you want to make the Hvy Trooper for the Empire attack both air and ground. It would look like this:

civ_1_unit_412_id: 1204
civ_1_unit_412_id2: 1204
civ_1_unit_412_id3: 1204

Take note that there are three id values to worry about it.

Now, the problem with this method is that sometimes your unit may change into Simon. I'm not sure of any specific causes of this, but I know one time I loaded a standard game I had saved. The first time I was playing it, the unit I changed (AA troopers) worked fine. Then after loading it all the AA troopers turned into Simon. So you can pull it off but just be warned that it has its flaws.

I'm using mod installer ver 0.91 on windows 8, with SWGB: Saga and I keep getting a message saying that the SWGB data can't be found. I've been searching for an answer to this problem, but still can't find one. Can I get some help with troubleshooting?

Sounds like Win8 might not support mode installer? Try SW normally without it or with mods manually installed. The mod installer probably isn't being pointed to the right folder.
