How do I mod in CnCNet5 specifically? I don't plan on a big project. I want to: balance stats in rules.ini, change shp graphics for some units and some new sounds.

P.S. djohe Wink

It was answered in this post by FunkyFr3sh: https://ppmforums.com/viewtopic.php?p=580582&highlight=#580582, you clearly missed that post and wrote replies later in that thread but still managed somehow to miss that post.  Smile
For simpler or starter mods I suggest you just make a mod map with just some stat changes.

Also if you want to speak to me directly just send private messages (This thread was aimed at me?)

I can get online on the CnCNet chat if you want me to btw.

It's better to create a custom mod map rather than a custom rules.ini file, this way you can just host a game on cncnet and all players will be able to join without the need to download anything. You also have a lot cnc1 shp files available, here is an example mod map:

i tried it and it worked! but i want to know exactly how modding works. I don't understand why I needed to replace the language, maps, cncnet5.ini and exe.

Because making a full blown mod requires everyone to have same assets and rules etc, because there is not automatic sending of all files you have on your computer to whoever joins your game session/hosted game except for maps unless I am misstaken, this is why I and Funky are trying to tell you to just keep it simple and just make a mod map with just all your unit stat changes in that map.

Example lets say a clone of the map "Keep off the Grass"

[General] ;MOAR crates LOLOLOLOL
CrateMinimum=25 ;default 1

[3TNK] ;tesla heavy tank (do not use Name= because it might crash game sometimes)
Primary=PortaTesla ;Aftermath shock trooper weapon ;map requires aftermath enabled
Secondary=PortaTesla ;Aftermath shock trooper weapon ;map requires aftermath enabled

[4TNK]
Image=CC_HTNK ;C&C1:TD Mammoth Tank image, included in RA1 Online package (CnCNet5)

[APC]
Image=CC_APC ;C&C1:TD APC image, is slightly different, included in RA1 Online package (CnCNet5)

[1TNK]
Image=CC_LTNK ;same as above

[2TNK]
Image=CC_MTNK ;same as above

[STNK] ;phase transport for allies enabled (stealth rocket APC)(requires aftermath)
TechLevel=10 ;default disabled aka -1
Passengers=5 ;default 1
Cost=1350 ;default 800
Owner=allies ;default allies,soviet
Points=50 ;wtf is set to 25 like APC, does not really make difference in MP but whatever

[Powerups] ;nuke explosion crates & cloaking powerup crates
Explosion=1,ATOMSFX,1000 ;Explosion=5,NONE,500
Cloak=5,STEALTH2 ;Cloak=0,STEALTH2

Most people are not willing to download external mods outside of the base game and mod maps unless you already got some sort of fanbase for your own mod and you currently do not. (I am willing mostly just for helping you but beside me I do not think anyone is really willing to do that) This is why you should limit yourself to a mod map, take baby steps sir you are just a beginner.

I appreciate your help and I take with gggrrreat solemnity your urge for me to do a map instead, but I am decided and I want to make shp files too. I have one person, besides you, that is willing to play it. It won't be a big mod and I'll eventually put it in moddb. I don't care if it doesn't get a fanbase, I'm doing it mostly for myself.
