Mmk, I tried using the search function to find this info and either I'm overlooking something or it ain't coming up.
I want to create a 4th faction, keeping the allied soviet and japan factions intact. I can't seem to figure out how though.
Also when attempting to run the mod sdk with bibber's stuff in place (downloaded earlier today) i'm running into an asset merge error (step 6) unless i uncheck the merge and fix options, not sure if that is related to my above problem or not.
Here is what i've fiddled with thus far:
Changed : Define name="PLAYER_MAX_MP_BEACONS" value="3" to Define name="PLAYER_MAX_MP_BEACONS" value="4"
copied template for Japan inside the PlayerTamplates.xml and editted name and starting tech points as a test to see if I was on right track.
Created the Mod.xml
Ran sdk got errors
Added in Bibber's stuff
Reran Sdk got 'merge error' mentioned above
Unchecked Merge and reran, got step 7 error
Ran again with Merge Assets and Fix Assets unchecked, zero reported error
Loaded RA3 with commandline modification to activate mod
Went to Skirmish, no change to team options.
deleted skirmish.ini and tried rerunning... still nada.
