    Dear all,

    Please forgive me if i m in a wrong forum.
    I wonder if anyone has manage to add the english MAN-O-WAR to be playable(to be constructed)in the colonies.
    I think this should be an option to exist.Of course the cost of this must be huge,but there is no problem with that.
    My second question is what kinds of additional ships has anyone manage to add in this game?(i saw a guy added sloop-of-war)

    It isn't hard to do that... you want to have it in addition to the Ship of the Line, or instead of it?

    As for your second question, any additional ship can be added, as long as you have the graphics for it; unless you want it to do something special that isn't already possible through the XML files, in which case you would need to edit the SDK.

    hello mark Im guessing you never tried modding but ill show you some things.


    Here I just opened up 2 XML editiors as you can see the man o war has something called a unit class which just barely you can see that it says ship of the line. that means that it replaces the ship of the line.



    Now here I opened up the unit class file and copied and pasted the ship of the line thing but changed it so it said UNITCLASS_MAN_O_WAR which means now the man o war can use this instead of ship of the line so it wont replace anything allowing you to build it also.



    all you ahve to do now is changed how many hammers you would want to spend to build it!

    you can also change it so that way you can build the man o war instead of the ship of the line but thats more boring
