Misc. Discoveries

I just thought there is all kinds of loose info floating around, with no specific threads to put them in, so I'll make this thread for any misc. discoveries or info on MW2 modding and dev.

First off, I now know what the file "MW2_MAP1.BWD" does, that file seems to declare the camo patterns that go on the mechs. Without that file, all you get are freefloating XEL files.
I don't know what happened when I excluded MW2_MAP2... I didn't notice anything.

And the mission specific MAP files (xxxxMAP1), all I noticed when I removed them was there was no scrounge on the map.

Another interesting misc. descovery; you can have more than 2 starmates:

(Two of my starmates "died" because I was inspired to make the userstar spawning point way up in the air so you could use your jets and deploy on-scene and look like you were an orbital-drop shocktrooper from Halo or something :P )

In fact, you can have up to 4 starmates. I made this "big star" from an enemy star that had a total of 4 draconis battle suits. I dumped out the AI values of the star leader with human values so you could play.

Something worth posting,

all that .WTB geometry that begins with the title **5_HEAD.WTB, (e.g., TW5_HEAD for Timberwolf, SC5_HEAD for Stormcrow...) all mech HEADs that have that "5" in the title, those are the shapes of what you see INSIDE the mech. So if you ever wanted a different interior frame, just go into the mech BWD and you can change the tag that links to the mech's **5_HEAD, and change the tag to a different **5_HEAD.

I was wondering about that myself.

See what happens when you replace a 5-type head with a 1-type. :P
