How to mod projectiles?

Post by JAKEDS »

Yeah, just like the title says I would like to know how mod projectiles. I tried looking for which file to edit with but I did not find it. Just wanna change some textures or models and make howitzer shots go above trees. I noticed that heavy artillery in epoch 10 can do this but later epoch heavy artillery don't. I tried replacing that unit's projectile with the epoch 10 one's projectile but it just doesn't look right. Hope that you guys could help me with this, Thank you!

Are you modding on the Normal or Developers version of Unofficial Patch 1.5?

I was hoping to do it with both Developers mod and UP 1.5(cause already has some nice units).

For Developers Version of UP1.5 it's file:
zips\db.zip\db\Visuals\ammo.ddf

For the Normal Version of UP1.5 it's file:
zips\db_155.zip\db\Visuals\ammo_15.ddf

And of course if it's EE2: AOS, the files are inside "zips_ee2x\EE2X_db.zip" or "zips_ee2x\EE2X_db_155.zip".

I have to remind that db_155.zip gets overwritten with every Minor Update of UP1.5. So you always need to backup your changes and then re-apply again. By re-applying I mean editing the files, not overwriting the whole .zip archive with your backupped copy, because sooner or later it will result in many game crashes.
