What do you mean by aircraft tutorial? How to make a new aircraft, edit one, what? Confused

I pretty much learned how to mod generals by looking in the INI files. Plus I had previous experience from modding TS. I would go to Revora forums and ask there. (Since PPM isn't really about Generals editing, mostly TS, RA2, and CNC3 I guess)

There is a reason we have sections for editing Generals here and definitely not to simply direct people other forums. There are a lot of generals modders who visit this site, but people don't post much here. Without posts, people are not motivated to post.

Qcumberhd you have to explain better otherwise we cant help you. There is alot you can do with aircrafts in Generals/ZH, we need to know what you want to do.

New aircraft? (Do a copy paste from another aircraft and work from there)
Icons, Commandset and commandbuttons and text?
Aircraft weaponry?
Special abilities like PDL's/flares/EMP resistant and other stuff?
Upgrade codes?
Or just some error you need fixed?
and so on...

By the way I totally agree Banshee, Generals modding never really took of here at PPM becaus people here... ahhh you know the drill Laughing

myself start with a fully fuctional base(I have the buildings on the map I just can't find a way to
assiagn them to belong to my start position) a tutorial or advice on how to do this would be nice.

A tutorial on how to change the train templates so other cars are behind the train would be handy. I think it's very easy to do once you know it but I can't find anything about it. Confused

Ok, anyone who mods generals on this site should help pitch in and write these tutorials. These are the big 4 difference between the other C&Cs and generals, and I think this will help bridge the gap. I know for a fact that all of these are possible. I'll be writing up as many as I need to when I figure out how to do so.

1)Engineers-Capture and repair buildings.
2)ConYard Build System
3)Modding the UI-custom command bar locations
4)Harvestable resources

Hi! I'm new here. I have question about Menu editing.

I couldn't find any tutorial about that so i thought i could ask someone to make it.

I would like to customize the Skirmish menu section but i don't know where to start. What i wanna do is :-

1: The AI free to choose random faction. (no user intervention at all).
2: Player cannot select team. (so user will ber forced to play Free for All).

I want to get the feels like when playing Red Alert or Tiberian Sun. I got friends who love to make their fav generals overly powerful and beat all enemies within seconds (and they keeps bragging about it..). #Mad It annoys me to see them killing the game spirit.
I wanna teach them a lesson. Twisted Evil If they don't get to choose their allies/enemies, wouldn't it be more interesting.

I've really gotten into Zero Hour recently, I decided to give it a go again after a long time cause I was really bored and I'm unable to work on Twisted Insurrection until I get the internet set up on my new computer (Don't worry! I'm still working Very Happy).
Anyway, I was wondering if there would be any chance of a Newbie guide to Generals modding so I could play around a bit? I've got Zero experience with modding Generals and google hasn't helped me out this time. Something like how to get started, useful links and tools etc.

Edit: Well here's a good link for Useful Zero Hour modding tools. http://forum.cncreneclips.com/index.php?showtopic=11637

Whenever I reach a certain point in completing C&C Tiberian Dawn Redux, I will release assets and tutorials... It seems I am always learning new stuff all the time with making tricks to Mod Generals/Zero Hour and pushing its game engine to its limits...

Can Someone Make A Faction Tut.

What I mean is.

Making your own complete faction.
With its own buidlings -Copy and paste codes from other factions and combine into your own, so when you go and edit the buildings, it doesnt effect the other factions who use it.. like..

Faction name: John Doe
uses American buildings
wants to make it where John doe can build everything off the start, as in.. shutting off prerequistes. -didnt spell that right- But.. doesnt want USA To be able to build it right off the back.. see what i mean?

Like for the tutorial.. A Tut on making your own Independent faction.. As in.. copying codes from others.. how would you do that.. what files would u need to create-edit-Etc.

that would be nice <3> I already know about Playertemplate.. im talking about stuff like from Data>INI>Objects> Buildings / Units / Etc

Plz and ty ;]

@Frontlines: DaFool did a tutorial on creating a faction, iirc.

I have a question, one which seems not to have a tutorial here:
"Texturing units for ZH, how?"

I'm not well acquainted with the software, and what I want to do is create a detailed skin for a unit. I'm uncertain as to the process in RenX.

dude, I do have a tutorial for adding units. If you've read my tutorials and still don't know how to make your own faction, somethings wrong.

Come to that, does anyone here know how the AI works?

So we all know about the Generals Powers... And that we only get to unlock so few of them. I think only five, right? Seven maybe.

Any way to make it to where we can unlock all the powers for that specific general that you're playing as? EX. Air Force General, Tank General...

I'd like to be able to call in all the air strikes, be able to call in a full paradrop, repair my vehicles, and have snipers hidden on the map. Ya know?

The best answer I can give to you is to look in the rank.ini (ZH) file and edit how many points are granted per rank. Dutchy knows more about it than I do, so maybe he'll have a better answer.

Typical Entry in Rank.ini

Code:
Rank 1
  RankName                      = INI:RankLevel1
  SkillPointsNeeded             = 0
  SciencesGranted               = SCIENCE_Rank1
  SciencePurchasePointsGranted  = 1
End


SciencePurchasePoints granted is how many points you get so you can spend it on stuff. you can increase it if you like, and you'll get more points. However, i think you'd rather add more ranks, inwhich case you'll have to ask dutchy.

That's exactly what I needed. Thank you.

If I find that I want to add more ranks, I'll come back here. The Generals section of PPM aren't too active.

I couldn't tell you. I've been modding CnC for around a year now... But only RA2 and TS/FS. Eh.

I'm sure you're just hoping someone sees your post, huh? #Tongue

OK ,

How can I replace the music tracks playing for each faction in a skirmish game?

I have been messing around with the xcc mixer but up to no avail.

I delete them but the stuff I drag in does not appear where the previous tracks were.

Thanks in advance.

I sent you a Private Message Letzt.
but.. for everyone else who doesn't know how.

In your Zero Hour Folder, Go to the Data Folder, Make a new folder named Music.
Inside that folder, add your music files.
I suggest you rename your music files to something simple.

Next.
go into your INI Folder, find the INI File named Music

The below code is an example. You don't have to change just the "Load_USA" Module. You can modify them all.

Code:

MusicTrack Load_USA
  Filename = USA_08.mp3
End


Change the text after Filename to whatever the name of your .mp3 is.

Would it be possible for someone to explain how to use the ObjectReskin tag properly. I have tried using this tag for symilar purposes as already shown in the ini files (for compatability, etc) however i have had no such luck...

(Im using just Generals, i dont know if that effects it in any way)

I tried out the same thing for my own mod, and even though I scrapped the feature, I still have the codes. I'll see if I can make up a little tut about it. It will be for ZH though.
EDIT: and done
