I’ll throw this question out to the experienced modders:
Is there an easy way to mod in a single weapon, available to all races, with a new turret sprite, that doesn’t involve editing the individual race turret collections? (That’s the files like turrets_federation.dds and so forth.) I’d like to put in a single, nowhere-near-fair superlaser that I can use on the single-player missions to blow off steam, but I’d prefer to not have to edit a new turret into every single race. I got pretty close (separate install - “cheat” - like the DLCs, with a single turrets_cheat.dds file with just the one turret in it), but the battle screen couldn’t find the turret (the ship kept coming up with white boxes on each turret, and the whole thing was slow and choppy). I put a line in each race’s text file to map the turret, but obviously something is missing.
Just kind of curious. If I can do this as a separate install or such, I thought I might slowly build up a collection of criminally unbalanced modules to be used just for S&G.
