I would like to make a mod, that modifies some module and hull stats from the existing modules and hulls.
I started with the modules by copying the shipmodules.csv file into my mod folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Gratuitous Space Battles 2\danous_test\data\shipmodules.csv. I deleted all modules but leaved the ‘cruiser_heavy_beam_laser’, and modified the cost to 500. I deliberately let the same ‘name’, so that the weapon get replaced.
Unfortunately this didn’t work like intended. Ingame the beam module was duplicated (with the new cost of 500), and not replaced like expected. If I wanted to make a new weapon, I had choosen another ‘name’!
I did also test to replace an existing hull (using the same filename and the same ‘name’ in the textfile), but it didn’t work. Again, I got a duplicate hull with my new stats.
Request: Let us replace existing modules and hulls when using the same 'name’.
