More startup problems... - 11/26/2011 6:07:04 PM

OK - having bought the game yesterday, installed it, deinstalled it, and reinstalled again i am running into more problems...

i wanted to modify a ship design, so i tried and failed (turned off automation, etc). So i rewatched nine of the "Let's Play RoTS" and finally found the ship redesign in part 9. In it, Das says he double-clicked on a component to add it... i've tried double clicking, double right-clicking, hitting the arrow that looks like it would add the component... no dice. i can't add a component.

What am i doing wrong?? Suggestions?

EDIT: figured it out - apparently you must copy a design over in order to modify it.

You can't edit a design that is currently in use eg. there are ships with that design in existance. There's a column that says amount which lets you know if there are any. If you want to upgrade it, i'd recommend clicking on the upgrade button and then editing the upgraded version, short of that you can click on copy as new and edit that.
