I just have a question, is it possible to add more buildings to the game? It would be cool if there be more wonders (for example: Eiffel Tower for France), etc. If it's possible you could also add more military buildings, etc.
I'm just asking, because I don't know almost everything about the modding.

Yes, it will be done in future versions of the mod. Will be added to the new wonders of the world, office buildings and military buildings.
I'm still looking for models of wonders, we now have:

Arab_League
Arc_de_Triomphe
bigben
Colosseum
Empire State Building
european national theatre
Hungarian_Parliament
Ishtar
kgb
Kuwaiti_Towers
Reichstag
USSR ministry
russian national theatre
taipei
trafalgar_square
Warsaw_Royal_Castle
World Trade Center

You already have those wonders? O_O
That's great information!

I recommend to search for:
- The European Parliament


- Dubai Tower:


- Nuclear power plant (Fukushima):

(This is joke ^^)

-----------------------------------
Where can I search models for units/buildings? I heard you use Civilization IV.
Does Civilization V supports models for EE2?

Interesting building ... But these models I have not.
Yes, I use the Civilization IV. I use the model here
http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=cat&id=1

For Civilization V need a special converter, before
I had the this converter, and now it is not. It is better to use models from CiV4

You install the mod?

Yes, I've installed the mod, and I've played it for half hour. It's really good (: I'll test it more in free time.

I think buildings in Civilization V are with better graphic quality, and you should try to put textures from Civ5.

What the file format does EE2 textures need? Can I search in other games than Civilization IV?

I would like to ask a small question.
How is the computer AI? He played poorly or well? At the level of the emperor.

You probably noticed that the original principles of tactics EE2 - rps do not work. The balance changed. Medium Tank has 12 epoch the life = 5000hp and attack 500dg. A soldier's parameters are the same = 100hp 12dg.
What do you think about this?

I have more questions of course - but I'll ask them later.

Modding Civilization V has one unpleasant feature.
In order to edit the files of the game need a licensed version of Civilization V. I did not buy the licensed version of the game.

I can only use mods for Civilization V. They are very small. For example section Wonders of the World: http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=cat&id=125

I will try to use the Civilization V, but the chances of success 50%.

EE2 is used in the game engine Gamebryo. Model files in the format of nif, texture files in the format tga (in the original game are in the archives nifcache and tehcache).
All games are Gamebryo nif files.
List of games
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamebryo
Another list of games:
http://niftools.sourceforge.net/wiki/Nif_Format/Nif_Resources

In most of these games models are too big (RPG game)
Many games - fantasy

I've setted him to "the easiest" level, so I don't really think he could play good with this handicap biggrin
I be continue testing, just late, because actually I've no time sad

I never checked before how it was, but I think you changed it to good. Now it's more relastic (5 soldiers can't kill 1 tank as it was possible before).

Isn't it possible to use files from cracked version of the game? I think legal version and cracked version has excacly same files in folder...

Thanks for list of the games which supports those files. Unfortunately I didn't find a game: Emergency 4 (we could add fire brigade, ambulance, more police cars, etc).

You said you've several wonders, for example: Empire State Building
Did you already tested how it looks in EE2? I'm afraid that buildings from Civilization IV be too small... It would be cool to add some really big buildings (bigger than Pentagon : )

Yes, I think so too.

cracked version of the game?
The fact that:

All models and textures in the game Civilization V is encrypted.
The creators of the game CivV made the program for modding this game. This is the only program able to edit the game files. However, this software is only installed on a licensed version of the game. It does not work with a pirated version.

Maybe now something has changed. But half a year ago it was true.

(we could add fire brigade, ambulance, more police cars, etc). Interesting idea.

"Did you already tested how it looks in EE2? I'm afraid that buildings from Civilization IV be too small ..." Yet, many of the buildings look quite acceptable.

Ah, I understand about Civilization V.

Btw, I have installed game "Sid Meier’s Railroads", and I can see it supports same model files as EE2 (.tga)
Maybe it's possible to add railways in futher versions of EE4 mod?

I've also Civilization V installed, and I found files in folder: Sid Meier's Civilization V\resource\DX9
There are files like:
CityTextures.fpk
MiscTextures.fpk
etc.

I was looking on Civilization V modding forums, and people were talking about "Nexus" program which allows to unpack files .fpk.
Maybe you just have to find a program to unpacking files .fpk, and then there be .tga files in it?

As you probably noticed, the economic building EE4 modes of Sid Meier's Railroads.
railways - hardly, I think they will not function properly.

find a program to unpacking files. fpk, for each game - has its own program. I do not know any other program other than Nexus.
Also tga files in the encrypted civ5 - they can only be decrypted Nexus. Nexus encodes tga files in the standard form.

I don't know if he has an e-mail.
He's not very active on Empire Earth II.

I think they best way is to contact with him via Private Message on ~eW`~>FORUM: http://www.easywinclan.forummotion.com/privmsg?mode=post&u=39
I think it's the best way for this moment smile
