im not sure where to begin, i want to do a mod wich modifies ship stats and the number of guns it has/fires, the price of them and everything, im not sure what to do here, lol. where, what, and how do you modify ship stats?
Alright, first you need to convert the gameinfo folder files into something readable. I recommend using a GUI conversion tool like Harpo's. After you convert them into txt, just change the various lines of the desired file until the stats are as you desire. There is also a tutorial in the forge tools in the download section, but the reference files are out of date, so that is why you have to do the conversion manually.
where would i find the gameinfo files? and what file format would they be under? (.gameinfo files or something else?)
sorry im a beginner in this type of stuff.
It is in the Sins of a Solar Empire folder (If it is regular sins just copy the gameinfo folder there, if it is entrenchment or diplomacy, go into that folder first and then copy the gameinfo folder there. All objects in the game have a .entity file which defines their stats, so that's what you'll have to modify.
ah ok thank you very much
So after changing the gameinfo, would that change my entire sins game? Would it make my normal sins games have these altered stats?
Don't modify the core gameinfo files!
First download the complete reference set for the version of sins you are modding.

Then follow these steps to put it in the right place.
