hi all,

I modified the shipNames.txt file following the instructions, but during the game DWU continues to propose the default names

what's wrong?

thanks in advance

Before anyone can help you, you might describe HOW, in what manner, you changed that file.

The file :

---

'Each line defines a list of names to be used sequentially when naming new ships or bases
'The role of the ship or base must be the first item on the line, followed by a colon
'Any number of names may follow on the same line, separated by commas
'
'e.g. SmallFreighter: Falcon, Eagle, Hawk, Condor

Escort: DE-001, DE-002, DE-003, DE-004, DE-005, DE-006, DE-007, DE-008 => follow-on to 400
Frigate: FF-001, FF-002, FF-003, FF-004, FF-005, FF-006, FF-007, FF-008 => follow-on to 400
...

---

and the same for all types, but, as I said, it doesn't work

Maybe your renaming format isn't accepted (dashes and numbers).

Maybe you exceeded the max string length. Try making a smaller change first and see if the change appears in game.

It was very simple

The mod shipnames file is used only by new game.

Thank you all
