I'm very very new at modding.
Basically, I hate the way they made Galactic Civ 2........
I hate the race balance, I hate those stupid "free luck find" pirate ships that can easily win the entire game, that you can get by chance, or your enemies (whom don't know how to use them).
I hate that event that allows one civ to become a super growing civ. Offbalances the entire game.
I hate starbases that don't feel like starbases and I hate how the enemy AI will waste extreme ammonts of ships to try to kill a starbase they simply can not.
I want to mod all these things.
My question is simple. How can I save a MOD game where the changes can actually take effect??
I know how to play a mod game, I'm just having trouble making the files stick. It seems like even though I make a lot of changes, usually to races, and ship stat modifications, they don't change in game! (after mod placement).
I'll play and the races just appear a bit screwed up visually and the ship stats seem not to have changed at all. Yet, I will go back into the moded files and they are infact changed.
I'm puzzled if I'm doing something wrong.
