Adding Ships (Basic)
This is for the average person who doesnít want to bother with editing the .exe file, but would rather just add a new ship.
Something to keep in mind before you start is that you have to use the same type of craft when replacing, i.e.fighter for fighter, shuttle for shuttle, etc. If the ship has turrets, you must put it in as a shuttle or starship.
What changes when replacing the opt is the weapons and size. What stays the same is the hull strength, shield strength, weapon firing order, speed, maneuverability, etc. So youíll want to replace a craft with similar stats to the new one.
There's a couple downsides to this method. Number one, the weapons may not be set up right, so you'll see things like your laser cannons firing missles. Another bad thing is you're limiting yourself as far as stats go. The new craft is somewhat different, but when it comes down to it, it behaves virtually the same. Lastly, you can't replace any ship that has a separate external opt. These include the A-Wing, X-Wing, and others.
In this example, weíre going to add the IG-2000 in the place of the Tie Interceptor. This should be easy.
