I made a mistake and included the wrong readme. It should read as follows:

IconReplacer - An addon for Star Trek Armada 3 The Final Frontier 1.1 and Nemesis

First, many thanks to the Stellar Parallax team for all of their passion and hard work creating an OUTSTANDING game. Star Trek Armada 3 is easily the best Star Trek game that I have ever seen, and I've enjoyed watching it evolve into its current form.

Though I'm not wild about the anonymised icons in the empire tree. For me, if feels more like Star Trek with the iconic (pun intended) ship images.

Hence, this IconReplacer addon, which was inspired by and is based on the icon replacement addon originally published by Gul-Dukat.

The same hud and infocard icons from the original addon are restored, a few that were missed have been included, some new icons have been added for new ships, and some pixel box issues have been cleaned up. There's even one special icon that was influenced by one of Corey's (CoreyLoses) mods, with his permission of course.

If I've missed something or made some kind of glaring mistake, please post a comment on ModDB. If necessary, I will release an update. Plus, this is the first mod work that I've done, so any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks

Thank you for this.
It's definitely a lot better and easier to do everything with the replacer.

In reflection to my previous comment......

.....I left it before I actually tried the addon. Not what I would usually do. Unfortunately activating the addon crashed the loading of the game and didn't work. When activating, I do that outside the game, with notepad (same as all Mods).

Any ideas?

What does your EnableMods.txt look like?

The same as the included file.

TXT
Version 0
enabledModNameCount 3
enabledModName "Star Trek TFF & Nemesis Icon Replacer"
enabledModName "Star Trek Final Frontier"
enabledModName "Star Trek Nemesis"

Ok I do change the names to suit myself, but everything always still works the same for all Mods I do that to.

Troubleshooting 101 - try it with the original folder name to see if that solves the problem.

You claim that spaces aren't a problem, but I couldn't tell you off the top of my head whether the & in the name would cause a problem or if you have a spelling mistake of some kind.

Let us know

Ok, I changed everything back to the original names and removed all spaces. Same result applies. Mod won't work for me.
Guess I'm stuck with not having icons.

Then something else is going on. It's working for other people.

There isn't any chance you have an extra level in the sub-mod folder, is there? Something like this?:

STA3_Addon_IconReplacer\STA3_Addon_IconReplacer\...

Thanks bruce! Im really glad to have ship icons back instead of diamonds! It was driving me crazy to zoom out and only see diamonds.

How did you get it to work then?
As you can see from my comment, using the addon crashed the whole game.
