Adding or tweaking commanders to the game

Post by bunkerhill » Wed Jun 06, 2018 1:36 pm

Well, since my last query was answered so quickly...

If one wants to either tweak an existing commander or add one to the data base, how does one?

Simplest, how would you merely copy one (accept duplicate artwork, just rename) and tweak values

Harder, anyone tried new artwork and then add etc...?

First advice, when tweaking core game stuff like this, I'd advise making a mod first (viewtopic.php?f=374&t=64188) so that you don't mess your base game up.

Other than that, the data for the commanders is in _Data/Content/Data/commanders.txt

The images are in Content/Graphics/Commanders

Their names are in Content/Language/english.txt (and other languages)

Excellent, thanks! I also discovered the "Heroes" mod made a while back. Thanks very much!
