Re: Changing Ship Challenge unit from destroyer Heywood to battleship Iowa

Hello.

To change Heywood to an Iowa class you will need to copy the following from the truk.mpak file and paste them into the "Hunt for the Cruiser" mission's mpak file:
-iowa.mmod,
-All the textures in the textures folder,
-All the files inside the sounds folder,
- All the "devices" mmods
-All the contents of the "effects" and "particles" folders

Once this is done you will only have one more thing you have to do:

Find this piece of code inside the hunt.scn file, which is inside the string of folders in the "universe" folder, which is inside the hunt.mpak file:
  }
}
entity "Heywood" (DestroyerGen) {
  localframe -0.7660 0.0000 -0.6428 0.0000 0.0000 1.0000 0.0000 0.0000 0.6428 0.0000 -0.7660 0.0000 -3710.8899 -0.0100 3965.2700 1.0000 ;
  template "USA\SEA\Fletcher-class" ;

  properties (Common, Command, GameUnit, Ship)  {
    "Command" {
      CommandTarget = R "" ;
    }
    Crew = E  CrewXPLevels : Veteran  ;
    FireStance = E  FireStances : FreeFire  ;
    Numbering = I 4 ;
    Race = E  Races : USA  ;
    RepairZoneArea = R "" ;
    StartSpeed = F 5.0000 ;
    Type = E  ShipClasses : Fletcher
}

Yours may look slightly different in some areas, but mine is modded. Don't just copy the next step into your file because it will likely crash. Modify it yourself for a higher chance of success.

To change Heywood to Iowa class, replace "USA/SEA/Fletcher" with "USA/SEA/Iowa" and replace "Type = E ShipClasses : Fletcher" with  "Type = E ShipClasses : Iowa2"

If you do this in the "1_mc_hunt.mpak" file, be sure to copy the modified hunt.scn file into the "0_mc_hunt.mpak" file, or it will not work.
If you do this in the "0_mc_hunt.mpak" file, be sure to copy the modified hunt.scn file into the "1_mc_hunt.mpak" file, or it will not work.

Final step: Pack up BOTH the "1_mc_hunt.mpak" and the "0_mc_hunt.mpak" files with the modified hunt.scn files pasted into them both. Then copy the newly packed mpak files back into your game and you're good to go!

You can do this for any class of ship. If you're adding a Japanese ship to the US side, be sure to change "USA/SEA" to "Japan/SEA"

I hope this has been helpful to you. If you have any more questions or are confused by my instructions please send me a message and I will try to help you as best I can, Paulsface269, Midway modder.

  • 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.
