Ok I'm getting really frustrated at the lack of free available art slots in the game database,there are far too many times that art files are used multiple times to show the same class off ship.It means 1 ship type can use up 4 or 5 art slots or more,when 1 art slot would suffice,it's a total waste of the 500 available art slots the game is restricted you too.It means that I can't expand the game much more,I've come to an impass.You can't change any art that is used in any stock scenario that comes with the game,because the numbered art file is locked to that ship,submarine whatever.So I'm left with no alternative but to call it quits with War Plan Orange,I have upgraded as far as the game will allow me at present time.It means I can't add all the things I have been wanting to add,which has left me frustrated and annoyed,to put it mildly I'm really pissed off!!!!!!

So sorry to say it's back to converting ADMIRALS EDITION to WAR PLAN ORANGE a huge undertaking that ain't going to get done in less than a years work!

Kirk,

Forgive me if I sound dumb, because I haven't played with the editor since late last year, but aren't all barriers removed once you save a scenerio to a non-stock number? And if that is the case, once that is done, can't the ship art numbers be changed at that point? I thought I recall doing that when I was messing around with it. And I agree with the multiple listings, by the way, that never made sense to me, either.

Rob,
Yes you can copy a stock scenario and save it as something else,then you can renumber art files,and move things about,but the over riding problem is you still can't alter the stock art from there start points.If I change any art from the ones that the stock scenarios need,while editing a new scenario,it buggers up the art that gets displayed when you play a stock scenario in the future,so it means that of the 500 maximum ship art files that are available,the stock scenarios that are hard coded and can't be altered use up the vast majority of the available art.In a nutshell I have run out of free art space,if I alter any it screws up the stock files.My options are to do a duplicated the install off the game,and use this version for any future expanded scenarios that I create,this way I can allocate all off the available 500 art slots to my own needs.But this would mean that anyone who would like to play any of my future scenarios would also have to do a duplicate install of the game,because most things would not work.

I see now. I wasn't aware we were limited to 500 art slots, especially considering there are 1999 slots for classes in the editor.

Rob,
There are quite alot of art that has still not been updated,and does not appear to be in use by either side,they look suspiciously like world war 2 ships.

Yes they can and are being put to use,I have deleted all art work that does not get used in any scenarios,that art work can now be put to better use,for more ship types that were in the era of the game.Enhanced CASTLES OF STEEL scenario is on course for release round about Saturday.

Thanks Rob,the planned release of the expanded CASTLES OF STEEL scenario will be slightly delayed,because before release I'm checking the database for errors with the editors in build verification test,which shows up any possible errors,because I want to make this major update the last one for this scenario,and it is a major update,I have added thousands of new pilots to the scenario,both allied and axis along with far to many changes to list here,so I hope everyone one like what I have done to improve the scenario even further.

Is it too late to PM you our full names so we can be the captain of our favorite ships? That's what WPO did when it first started!

You never know. When they were first creating WPO that was something the designers did - I always thought that was pretty neat and was sorry I missed it.
