I want to make one new weapon
« on: October 31, 2014, 01:16:32 »

     Love the game.  I want to make one new weapon.  Is that all done in the Tactics.INI file?  I am guessing it isn't because that is always just too damn easy.

Also if I want to edit my Tactics.xls file and have it read as the tactics ini file, in other words do all my editing in .xls and have it usable as .ini how do I do that.

IIRC, yes. You only need to add your weapon in the Tacticstypes.ini file. Small fighter craft are an exception I think, needing (at least) two entries in this file. For craft itself, and the weapon it fires.

But also, IIRC, I think you need to restart a whole new campaign to see the changes ingame, as the tacticstypes.ini file info is 'hardwired' into the save of a campaign.
