INDEPENDENCE WAR 2: EDGE OF CHAOS GRAPHICAL MOD SDK.
V1.0, October 2001

***********************************************************
INTRODUCTION
***********************************************************

This Software Development Kit ("SDK" ) contains programs, data and documentation that will enable you to create in-game objects such as ships for Independence War 2: Edge Of Chaos.

It is not intended to be a complete reference guide, but it should contain all the information needed to start creating your own ships, stations and other in-game 3D content.

Before you start modifying ("modding") the game it's a essential to ensure you have the latest patch for the game.

Versions of the game from f14.6 (EOC Patch 2) have enhanced support for modding, making it easier to distribute and install your mods.

***********************************************************
THE RESOURCE.ZIP FILE
***********************************************************

If you're going to be doing a lot of modding, it's wise to extract the contents of the resource.zip file that's located in the folder where the game is installed.

The resource.zip contains most of the game's resources, including 3D objects, textures, graphics, etc, and extracting its contents will allow you to easily change any of the files you wish.

The extracted files in the folder will take precedence over the files in the resource.zip. If you wish the game to use any of the original files in the resource.zip, then simply delete the corresponding files from their folders.

You can extract the contents of the resource.zip by using any standard zip program, such as WinZip.

You should extract the contents to the same folder where the resource.zip is located, and ensure that the pathnames in the resource.zip are used.

Please note: Don't overwrite any files that are already there, otherwise you may overwrite updated files previously installed by a patch.

For clarity the documentation included in this SDK assumes you have extracted the contents of the resource.zip

***********************************************************
LIGHTWAVE
***********************************************************

The game's graphics were developed with Lightwave 3D, so parts of this SDK rely on the user owning Lightwave and knowing how to use it.

However, it is possible to modify some of the Lightwave files (such as Lightwave .lws scene files) with a text editor, though this is much more difficult way of doing it.

***********************************************************
SDK CONTENTS
***********************************************************

Note: The documentation in this SDK is in Rich Text format and should be viewable by most word processing programs.

However some programs (such as WordPad) may not be able to display features such as the indexes or headers and footers correctly.

Avatar_Creation.rtf - How to create 3D objects in lightwave and get them into the game.

Convertor.rtf - How to convert Lightwave objects and textures into a format compatible with the game.

Sim_and_Subsim_Creation.rtf - How to setup ships, stations and their systems for use in the game.

Convertor Folder - Contains the Particle Systems Object convertor program.

Lightwave_setup_scenes folder - Various lightwave setup scenes to help you set up 3D objects in Lightwave for use in the game.
