I recently reinstalled IL2DCG 3.48 after a couple of years of not using it.


I generated a mission for Coral Sea.  When I started the mission I could see the stock USS Lexington and the USS Generic CV (Saratoga clone).


Since my HSFX 7.0.3 has had Additional Essex Class CV's and the three Yorktown Class CV's I experimented with the ship names file and the Coral Sea mission file.  First I made a copy of each original file and then I edited both files by changing the the ship associated with the name USS Yorktown to USSYorktownCV5_42 and changing the chief entry to USSYorktownCV5_42.  I then generated the mission and the USSYorktownCV5_42 appears when I play the mission.


I tried to do the same for the USS Lexington by changing the ship associated with it from USSLexingtonCV2 to USSLexingtonCV2_42 (8" turrets replaced with auad 1" AA)  and edited the mission file so this was reflected in the chief entry.  When I generated the mission and chose to play it the USSHornetCV5_42 appears, but the USS Lexington is gone.


Thank you,

You will need to add them to the gobjects.dcg file in the DCG Data folder as well.  Something like this:


Ships.USSLexingtonCV2_42                                 1 0 0 0 1 1 1  None


And also in the shipnames.dcg file.  See other examples there to see how it's formatted.

Apologies for hijacking this thread but what needs to go in the gobjects.dcg file?  Syntax?
