You have to extract the "class_xx" mpak for whatever unit you want and edit the texture files.

Re: How to change the Body Color of a Ship

You either need to install paint.NET or GIMP (with the additional dds plugin) then you can open and edit .dds files. They are basically compiled .tga files. Almost everything in this game is compiled stuff. mmods are compiled obj files, dds are compiled tga, fsb are compiled wav/mp3 and mpak are compiled zip files.

One dds is the texture file. One is for the bumpmap (tells the game where to render bumps and dents on a surface) and lightmap (where the texture is reflective and by how much). To know which one is which is very simple. Just open it and see.

Re: How to change the Body Color of a Ship

I'm in the same boat (No pun intended), but I want to make the change to the I-400 and turn it into this: http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2013 … 401_s2.png
And I'm still not sure on how to do this based on the posts above.

Re: How to change the Body Color of a Ship

Hi

I suggest you take a look at this tutorial on modding. It will explain to you which tools you need and with which files to work.

The tutorials are not long and it will give you all you need to know about modding (textures, scripting, map making and more).

It is still work in progress though.

It's quite alright. I'm just happy that this game is still alive in the modding community.

  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
