Re: Naval game errors?

Now that I have been shown how best to save any new mod,I can start getting stuck into sorting out a good few database errors. I have put the actual mod on hold until a time that I have updated all Nation's ship OOBs into the model database. Hopefully this might be of use to all members who have a c...

15. Press 'ESC' and save the game. The new scenario will be written. Everything works as described until I get to 15. Press 'ESC' When I press escape the game goes immediately back to the main menu,which does not have an option to save the new scenario. With the result that the new scenario is not b...

Re: Naval game errors?

My goal is to correct all the Naval database errors, such as 3rd 74s showing up as 1st rates, for example. Adding all names of ships still active in 1805 French,British,Spanish,Russian etc, I can manage to mod the MODEL & UNIT files easy enough,but my biggest problem is creating new Squadrons,or...

Re: Naval game errors?

The more I try to mod these games,the more I want to pull my hair out! Unless you know what you are doing they are a nightmare to mod! Years ago there was talk of a Modder's handbook being written up that would explain in detail how to mod the data files,but alas that has never appeared. The frustra...

Re: Naval game errors?

After another long break I'm back to see if I can fix all the Naval errors in the games database, I have to say its like walking through a minefield. The grand campaign 1805 is a total mess,there are ships sailing about in 1805 that belong in the Pirates of the Caribbean! Because some of them are gh...

Cheers! Might I suggest you split Nelsons massive fleet in two. Leave Admiral Collingwood in charge of 1 fleet blockading Cadiz, and have Admiral Nelson Blockading Toulon with the other fleet.

I have tried to mod the game, but so far all attempts, result in the game crashing, so I returned the game to its official release config. I'm taking another long break from the game, so for now the game is shelved.

It is hard to estimate Ottoman naval forces for this time period,as there is a shortage of available factual info,what I do know is that Turkey had in the late 1790s 27 Ships of the line and 20 Frigates.

HMS Renown in this screenshot,is listed as a 98 Gun Ship of the Line (2nd Rate) she is in fact a 74 gun (3rd Rate). History Royal Navy Name: HMS Renown Ordered: 10 Jun...

Only to be expected since Britain was a naval super power during that period in history, and her fleet expenditure was a huge concern during the war years.

Ahh Ok I will save the scenario and see if the new Admiral stats update, altering the files within the database is a bit confusing to do, but once you start to tinker with stuff it gets easier, I guess it's just getting used to tweaking things.
