HardPoint Icon Modding
« on: April 23, 2018, 09:40:15 pm »
Just curious about how to go about modding the icons for each hardpoint, the green icons for turbolasers and hangars etc. that appear on a ship in battle. I thought the necessary files would be located in in the MT_commandbar.MTD file, but I could not find them.

Where are the hardpoint icons located so I may modify them?

They are simple *.dds textures located in the texture directory. You might have to unpack hem from the base game files.
They are defined in the gameconstants.xml file.

Look out for the definitions starting with this snippet:
Code: [Select]
<HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Enemy_Texture> HARD_POINT_ENGINE, I_Hard_Point_Reticle_Engines </HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Enemy_Texture>
<HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Enemy_Tracked_Texture> HARD_POINT_ENGINE, I_Hard_Point_Reticle_Engines_Tracked </HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Enemy_Tracked_Texture>
 <HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Friendly_Texture> HARD_POINT_ENGINE, I_Hard_Point_Reticle_Engines </HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Friendly_Texture>
<HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Friendly_Tracked_Texture> HARD_POINT_ENGINE, I_Hard_Point_Reticle_Engines_Tracked </HardPoint_Target_Reticle_Friendly_Tracked_Texture>
