Ok, I've played with this a dozen different ways but I none of my mods seem to be getting picked up in the game. I can't even get the description on a club to change (altering nothing but the description in the CoreWeapons.xml file. I've also tried putting files in the Mods folder but nothing seems to be working. Is there something obvious I'm missing?
Okay, this one may be too obvious, but just in case you missed it.
Main Menu, Options, Gameplay, middle column, bottom, check - use mods.
It was too obvious. I missed it.
You need to remove the CoreWeapons.xml file from the game and replace it with your new file with the change in description. Modding core files requires you to do this. However, if you just want to add a new club, change the internal name and place it in the mods folder, then click use mods in the options screen.
What do you mean, "remove the CoreWeapons.xml file from the game"?
I mean you would need to make a copy of it and remove the original from the game folder. Then you can change the copied version that is still in the game folder. That is the best way to affect any of the core game files.
If you're altering core game files you'll need to add the -localdataonly tag to the exe shortcut target path, otherwise your changes will be overwritten as soon as you start up a new game.
bump. I add this reply to add my history so I can find this.
