I'm trying to recreate my pre crusade race and encountered some difficulties. Maybe some of you experianced modders can help out. I'm trying to add my starting ships to my race but they do not apear in the game. First I just tried to put them in the FactionDefs.xml with the line:
Thats unfortunately not enough in crusade. In fact, this line is completly useless and I dont know why they still have it in the FactionDefs. No matter what I put there, I will get the ship, I placed in the line;
So I thought, how about creating a new ability in the AbilityDefs.xml. So I duplicated the SurveyStartingShip ability and altered to my ship. I have a static blueprint for my ship and it's in the FactinShipstyleDefs and the ShipClassDefs. But no matter what I do, I cant find the new ability when I create a new race and with my race there is no starting ship. Only the ships from Crusade.
Any ideas how to get aditional starting ships? Any change I aply to the AbilityDefs.xml for starting ships is completely ignored.
Never mind. Figured it out.
