Hey Guys
I've found a lot of the RA2 and YR vxls but I cannot find where are all the civilian shp files for the city buildings as well as [I guess they are shp files] the shp files for Yuri gattling cannon, the base for the soviet flak cannon and the base for the allied grand cannon.

I plan on creating new civilian buildings like skyscrapers, apartments, stores and industrial structures for the game to be made as city packs for everyone to use.
I  using Paint ShopPro with lots of plugins.
Thanks

You can use find to search for items you are looking for only lowercase and include .shp you should see them with the address of where to find them in which mix

The FIND search doesn't always work because for what ever stupid reason, rather than putting all the civilian buildings in one file, some bozo decided to put them in different mix files and gave them names according to the state where the real buildings are from.

For example, do a search for cachig04.shp
It is the Chicago Associates Center in the rules and FA but you won't find it because the search doesn't find it which means its either hidden or encrypted or they named it some the different.

The Chicago Associates Center building is in isogen.mix under the name cgchig04.shp. If you are having problems finding a building try replacing the second letter in the name with A, T, G, D ,N or L to look through all the different map theaters used by the NewTheater=yes logic.

I doubt I would have found it if you didn't post this.
I spent 2 days going through these confusing files.
Thanks Mig
