I know I didn't do a proper search but I wanted to add some ships from some of the other mods and I was wondering how to do that. I added the ships from the units folder but they still don't come up

Check the wiki there is an how to on adding ships did you add them to units.csv and master_parts_list.csv if it is not in the master parts list you can't buy it :wink: and if not in units.csv it don't show up in game at all make sure you get the right path to the ships mesh and textures folder and the file names can sometimes be problematic.

Enjoy the Choice :)

EDIT, I fixed all other ships I just can't figure out how to add the ships and weapons from VT still, that has me stumped (its not like I know what I'm doing anyways, just hoping I don't mess up my game and have to redownload it)

VegaTrek might use additional graphics, or even code which you are not aware of.

You could contact esgaroth, he is currently trying to port VegaTrek to a PR1.2 installation and has a routine in porting his ship to other mods. Additionally, feel free to post stderr.txt and stdout.txt which might also carry information about what you've missed.

I think it has to do with the fact that in VT there isn't a Units file in the units folder like the other mods. I guess I should try manually entering into the units file and if that doesn't work I will get ahold of esgaroth. Thanks
