Adding Tooltips to Ship Texts

Recently, I created a brand new ship (I kind of borrowed the idea from a few others and turned the Home One into a real Rebel Battlecruiser (MC80)). However, I can't figure out how to input tooltip text. I've made a new file in the Master_Text.dat thing named that followed the model of other ships, but so far nothing shows up. The game just says missing... Any ideas?


Come on, did you actually think your destiny wasn't set?

Did you point the <Encyclopedia_Text>-tag in your ships info to your newly created text within the master text file?

Within your ships .xml file (spaceunitscapital.xml I suppose) should be a line which looks like this:
<Encyclopedia_Text> TEXT_TOOLTIP_MON_CALAMARI_CRUISER TEXT_TOOLTIP_REQUIRED_PLANETS_CAPITAL_SHIPS</Encyclopedia_Text>

The text unit TEXT_TOOLTIP_MON_CALAMARI_CRUISER is the link to the master text file. You said "I've made a new file in the Master_Text.dat", so I suppose you already made a new entry to your master text file and named it. So if you named it say TEXT_TOOLTIP_MC80 you have to change the line I quoted above to:
<Encyclopedia_Text> TEXT_TOOLTIP_MC80 TEXT_TOOLTIP_REQUIRED_PLANETS_CAPITAL_SHIPS</Encyclopedia_Text>

what he's saying is you need to go into your Text Folder in \GameData\Data\Text and edit your MasterTextFile_ENGLISH.DAT file and add an entry for your new ship.
