It's not often we get help with the scripting side of A2. Epytron Omega has put together the latest thing in that regard: an editor for your scripting content.

Quote:
This program was written for modding ODF, TT and Sprite files for Star Trek Armada 2. While designing and building this program, I felt that it would be nice to include not just an editor, but all the tools necessary for creating ODFs, TTs and Sprite files, and with that in mind I set forth on my mission. I would like to thank Starbase34.net for the extensive research they did into the ODFs for making ships/stations and weapons, as that was a big help in writing all the coding in for the ODFs. I do not have any blank templates for you to use, its build as you go, and that is, in my opinion, all you need. This modding tool is meant for both the most seasoned veteran and the newest rookie that is just starting out.

Sounds like just the kind of thing many of our modders need most. Definitely worth a download.

Cool
