This tutorial will teach you how to create, setup and build your first simple Act Of War MOD.
In this MOD we will change the speed at which Jefferson moves through the world.
Create a new MOD with the official sources
With the ModManager, enter 'My First MOD' in the MOD name and click on the Create with official Data button.
The official data files will be create in the game directory.
Alter Jefferson speed
Open source file <GameDirectory>\DataLight\DefaultNDF\Unites\ParametreSemantiques\_zAoW_XX_ParametresSemantiquesUnites_DoNotEdit.ndf
where <GameDirectory> is the name of the directory where the game has been installed.
Around the top of the file, find the code :
GROUPE_SEMANTIQUE AOW_TF_Jefferson_SEMANTIQUE ... MOUVEMENT = 500 ... end
Change this code to :
GROUPE_SEMANTIQUE AOW_TF_Jefferson_SEMANTIQUE ... MOUVEMENT = 500 * 2 ... end
By altering this number, we've told Jefferson to move two times faster than before.
