I love warhammer 40,000 and was using Battlefleet gothic mod for Entrenchment. (Now discontinued, sadly)
Unfortunately, again, the mod itself is kinda incomplete, I think. As the Imperium I get my fancy ships but I'm fighting a bunch of square models for ships from orks and tau. I figured it was just incomplete and deactivated the mod.
Thing is, I hate the way the TEC capital ships look and to me they're the most decent looking ships out of the three factions. So what I did was rename the meshes and textures to the base game and copy/paste to the core game folder. I figured I'd just have Tec ships go Imperium.
(I just started with one capital ship modified to test)
It worked, sort of. The thing is the capital ship is a solid color of whatever my team color is. its got everything but the texture I copied into it. I didn't copy/paste wrong from texture because it asked if I wanted to overwrited all 3 files.
Is it something to do with PipelineEffect? If so I wouldn't know where to edit in that. I tried searching on the mod forums and google and turned up fruitless.
Any input would be greatly appreciated, otherwise the ship runs fine and is very coherent when firing lazers n whatnot. So far I just make my color yellow and pretend its a capital ship made of solid gold.
