custom ship packs for everything

well, if u know i'm making a mod featuring a new house. and a house needs new ships. this means that i need this:

-1 new LF
-1 new HF
-1 new VHF
-1 new CRUISER
-1 new GUNBOAT

they can come from different ship packs, however. but i need to apply the same texture for them, changing some stats depending of the ship and even hardpoints. also i need to change the ship names for more adequated names for my house (based on brazil) and infocards. but i'll keep the credits.

just some considerations:
- the ships should not to be very strong, or with lots of weapons or internal weapons. also, they need to seem like freelancer ships. i mean, nothing of battleships with lots of guns or shields or something. the ships need to have stats according to their category (it would be crazy if i have a lf with 60 cargo space), have, at maximum, 1 cd/t or cd hardpoint and the maximum of 10 total hardpoints. (including one for the mine, one for countermeasure, and one for cruise disruptor or torpedo). i know that i'm not very cool saying all these "rules", but i want to keep balanced my mod.

If you're making the mod, why don't you learn to use HardCmp? It allows you to add the hardpoints you want and not what someone else has added.

As to the gun requests, why not learn how to do loadouts and then you decide what weapons go on the ships?

Just a thought

yeah ok, i'll try a look on it. but, and about the ships? anyone can point me? (the search engines here are *slightly* poor. well, they are beta!)

@ fire wolf

There's nothing stopping you looking through the DOWNLOADS section and looking for ship packs there

There are lots of ship packs in the downloads section. Most will even tell you what you are allowed to do with them. SOme you are free to use without seeking permission, and others you you can modify freely without seeking permission. Others, you can modify once you have been given permission. So just read the information which comes with the download.

as u know, the search engines here are bugged. i mean, they can found files only 2004 or older, i guess. and this means that there are LOTS of stuff needing search engine not-bugged lol.

aaaand, there are many ship packs not only in ship pack category, but in add-ons and general mod too. it make harder the things.

k, cya!

Without wishing to go on about this, as i've already pointed out, and Fadius has as well come to that, its all there. You just need to look for it and spend some time searching, it's what a mouse wheel is for. You can't expect people here to do the work for you. Yes there are mods with ships in them but not as easy to get permission to use those as the ship packs.

Good man Fire Wolf, lots to find in there.

As to the proverb, i made it up lol

Post Fri Nov 16, 2007 9:20 am

whoa! lots of things!

but i'm fearing something. most of the ship packs are of 2004, and normally their makers are offline now. and i need to change somethings in their ships to fit them in a new house, like the names. and it'll be useless if i find a nice ship pack but the author can't allow me to change somethings...

*searching now*

and i'll put ur proverb in my signature ASAP lol.
