I love this game to death, but the units for the human are lacking and a bit boring compared to the AIs. I know that's the point, but I want to make some really weird shit.

I imagine that it's possible to just change the code from "AI-1" to "Human-1" or whatever it is. But getting the ships to build from docks may be tough?

Sure. If you want to be able to build Guardians, for example go to the GameData/Configuration/GameEntity/KDL_Ships_Guardians.xml and add the line

                        built_by="Starships"

to the xml for any guardian types you'd like to be able to build. Then you will be able to build them from Starship Constructors. It's possible there's some extra magic that also needs to be done, so if that doesn't work let me know.

Where would I find the GameData? I'm looking through the Steam folder, but can't find it.

This is for Classic, btw.

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought this was the AIW2 forum, not the AIWC forum. I don't know if this is possible for AIWC; probably not.

I will literally pay hundreds of dollars to be able to build all non-player ships.
