I recently noticed that there are no easy way to get into modding. Tutorials are few and hard to find. I decided to make a little list of different tutorials I could find to help people who want to get into modding!

 

Some notes first :

  • I do NOT take credit for any of these tutorials, unless specified otherwise. All the authors are mentioned and you should thank them, not me.
  • Some of these tutorials might be slightly out of date. However, I listed them because I think they are still relevant enough.
  • If you are a tutorial author and want your tutorial to be included or removed from the list, message me.

this one as well

I still need to update the guide due to the fact that I figure out how to add sound again in a different way(even through it a little buggy, but still better then nothing). But I haven't gotten around to it yet

Model swapping is still next to impossible since the file structure changed a while back, unless someone managed to figure it out again.

Short, fat battlebote when.

No stats, because posting with purple numbers makes your opinion worthless for some reason.

Thanks Major, I was actually looking for that one but couldn't find it!

hi all great idea. would be great if there was a thread that brought together links to all the resources known. then using edits of the original post update it with the latest links. I have wanted to learn to mod for a long time, but have really struggled to find info on the type of modding I want to do. In particular I want to know how to make my own crosshair and warning icons. if anyone knows where I would find a tutorial on those, or other type of tutorial that would at least give me the knowledge to figure the rest out myself I would be most grateful o7

for the warning icon, that easy. All you need is "JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler". unpack hub_lib.swf from res/gui/flash by using the unpacker.

Then open hub_lib.swf in Jpexs. In jpexs, click on the image folder and the warning icons should be around 300 numbers range. click on replace and replace them with your own images(icons). Then click save. :P

 

and now for the crosshair, you do the same as above with jpexs. But this time you need crosshairs.swf from res/gui/flash folder. Open crosshairs.swf and click on the image folder(tab). pick the biggest crosshair to work with, left click on the image in the side bar. Then pick the option "Export selection"

now start making your new crosshair in gimp or photoshop by using the crosshair you extracted as reference.

When you're done, put your modded crosshair into image #50 of the swf file(that is for type 1 crosshair)

Now here the fun part.

Click on the shape folder and pick #51. Left click>raw edit.

Let say my crosshair size is 1696x800. You just add an extra 0 to the end while editing space #51(image below). Don't forget to add the - sign in front of some of the numbers(as shown in image)

And for Shaperecords 1-4. Just double the number, simple. 16960x8000 become 33920x16000.

Don't forget to click save at the bottom bar when editing space and click save again under the file tab.

by doing this, it should put the center of your crosshair in the middle of the screen.

I would dearly love to know where to make the changes to the battle layout.xml as the Compass elements mod was great but is borked on my resolution...?

Any change of a "How to create crosshair" I am trying to mix the 2 default crosshairs with having the very small health bar, but keep the numbers around the crosshair.

This has been asked many times, but I have never seen an actual tutorial for crosshairs. I have never had to make one so I have no idea how they work. Maybe someone would be nice enough to make a quick tutorial?

Alternatively, you could ask specifically DarthDoge or MajorRenegade. They are the ones who made the most guides in the OP. Maybe they could help you with that.

Similarly, I'd really like to know if it's possible to mod the Dynamic crosshairs. I'm planning to make a Knights of Sidonia themed Minimalist UI at some point, and there's some pretty cool crosshairs in that anime that I'd love to use.

I still not sure what you mean by this. Also adding a health bar to the crosshair? sorry, don't know how to do that to lack of knowledge of coding a swf file or whatever. beside what Hootorez showed me on how to mod crosshair and edit xml files for anti mirror ship icons.
