I recently got HWR, and I want to mess around in the HW2R campaign by making some ridiculous OP ships. For this example, let’s say an Ion Interceptor. Note, I followed the directions at Need help with editing ships and platforms but the Interceptors still use their normal guns.
Here’s what I did. Please correct me if I did something wrong:
- Decrypt and extract HW2Ships.big from Homeworld Remastered Collection\HomeworldRM\Data
- Edit the hgn_interceptor.ship file as follows:
Change the line StartShipWeaponConfig(NewShipType,“Hgn_KineticAutoGun”,“Weapon_FrontGun”,“Fire”);
- Save the ship file to \Homeworld\HomeworldRM\Data\ship\hgn_interceptor\hgn_interceptor.ship
- Add -overrideBigFile to the launcher shortcut.
This doesn’t change anything. The interceptors still have the kinetic auto gun as their weapon. I would appreciate any help with this. Thanks.
