Nameplates: Instructions and requests
Using nameplates:

To use nameplates just select texture replacement in FRED and replace the appropriate texture with one of the nameplate ones listed.  If the nameplate has glow and shine maps you will need to replace those as well.  Unless otherwise stated assume glow map.  For ship names with () after them use whatever is in the () as the name not the actual ship name. 

Omega:
Replace texture eaomega01a with eaomega01a_name.  Only some of the ships have glow and shine maps. For the ones that do simply repeat the process for the glow and shine maps.  Replace eaomega01a-glow  with eaomega01a_name-glow and eaomega01a-shine with eaomega01a_name-shine.  

Omega-X:
Same as Omega except the texture names start with eaadvomega01a.  All ships have glow maps but none have shine maps.  

Nova:
Same as Omega except the texture names start with nova01a.  All have both glow and shine maps.  

Poseidon:
Same as Omega except the texture names start with ea_pos02.  All have both glow and shine maps.

Explorer:
For all ships except to the Cortez replace eaexplorer_blank with eaexplorer_name and eaexplorer_blank-glow with eaexplorer_name-glow.  No shine maps.  For the Cortez replace eaexplorer_name with just cortez and eaxplorer_blank-glow with cortez-glow.

Warlock:
Still being worked on.  


Well the instructions for making them will be coming soon and some basic ones are already included in Zathras.


Anyone that wants one for a mission and can't make their own just post and we'll see about getting it made.

No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Re: Nameplates: Instructions and requests
Nameplatting in Omegas works just fine for me, but fred says it cant find the textures for novas and poseidon class. Any suggestions?

Re: Nameplates: Instructions and requests
It's a known bug with FRED.  Open the mission up in notepad and fix the texture replacement  lines.  Use an existing mission as a guide if you need one.

Re: Nameplates: Instructions and requests
No list for fighters.  I'll probably do a list when I put stuff together for the next Zathras or DVD.

Re: Nameplates: Instructions and requests
I think it's called Explorer_Blank.  

There should be a text file with instructions in your Zathras directory.

Re: Nameplates: Instructions and requests
Yup, that made it work. The texture list in FRED didn't include the EAExplorer_Blank that's why I was having trouble figuring it out. For any other new FREDer  interested in that, here's a quick reference of  what it should look like.

$Texture Replace:
+old: EAExplorer_Blank
+new: EAExplorer_Name
+old: EAExplorer_Blank-glow
+new: EAExplorer_Name-glow

Ships with names are sooo cool !  :D
