Ship Class Names

How do I change the names of general ship types?

The reason I ask is wish to change the Victory Cruiser to Victory-class Star Destroyer, and change its class from cruiser to capital ship.

Thanks

Well, Capital ship in Star Wars is any military ship larger than 100 meters.

So that makes even the Corellian Corvette a capital ship.

So there's no real point doing that.

Its simple. download the DAT Editor here http://www.renevo.com/downloads/eaw/DATEditor.zip then open the MasterTextFile and scroll to the TEXT_UNIT section.Find the entry for the unit and double click it, then change the text portion to the name you like. You can also edit the description in the TOOLTIP part.
