this is my first post..first I must say Im really hapy to see something new about cossacks. my english is not ok so I will say only "Thank you All"
anyway I m working on a simple mod.. Im trying to add some unique units in game..in original game I know how to add an unit to a nation.but in imperia directory I cant find some files.. for example md list, file list, . as I understand imperia mod makers use modtext file and namelist file to adding some new units..so
I made an icon first
then I add a new line to nmlist "UNITSMD\ismail" (my new units name is ismail)
I made a md file ISMAIL.md and I open md file , change its name "ismail" . I chage icon name it has same name "ismail"
I edited mod_text file and added a new line "UNITSMD\ISMAIL.MD ismail Pasa "
then I edited uniqs.nds file I added 2 lines "ismail(UN) ismail" and second line under "[country] line I added
"ismail(UN) " number of unit was 25 so I made it 26 ..its like to editing a nation nds file
I made a description file but I cant find filelist so game cant see my new description file..when I try to run game I get an error message about description file .its not a big problem I can open the game withthis error . but when I try to open game editor I get another error message "cannot create unit ismail(somethimng like that) so where is the problem I really dont know..in original cossacks to adding new units was simple because there are some basic files like file list name list md list..so any suggestions?
and another problem about gp arch.. I made a new icon for my unit I repacked iconlist everything is okey..but as I understand I chose wrong options about colors etc becasue I saw that all of the unit icons looks like a blue players icons..I chose red color but icons are still same..(IM talking about Megapack tool) I dont have any simple idea about color settings image settings..
another problem too
I made a mod on imperia its name is 18 cc..I dont like to fight in 19 cc so I disabled imperia upgrade and I disabled 18 cc pikemans too I just wanna see more musketeers on battlefield..so I disabled pikemans 18 cc..I change one of the upgrades in blacksmith..I add infantry upgrade working with cavalary upgrade( its about creation speed making faster is 2 times) , so now infantry can be created 2 times faster..I would like to make it an unique upgrade but computer player cant make my new upgrade because of AI..so I dont know how to make a new AI.dll file..
my problem is computer player has too few cannons after my mod..I change cannon capacity I make it 40 for cannons so I thought that computer uses more cannons but it created only 2 or 3 17 cc cannons so. what did I do wrong
any help will make me very hapy..
and IM really sory for my really bad english..
